The Wider Image: Vatican deal a new trial for a Catholic village in China
Choosing a church can be complicated in China under the rule of the officially atheist Communist Party - especially in Youtong village, where roughly half the 5,000 residents are Catholics. Within a mile radius, the village in northern China's Hebei province hosts a Catholic church sanctioned by Chinese authorities, two large "underground" churches, and numerous smaller unofficial house churches, according to villagers. Youtong provides a snapshot of the muddled and delicate situation for China's estimated 12 million Catholics, with allegiances split between government-sanctioned churches and the underground ones endorsed by the Vatican, amid expectations that a historic accord will soon be struck between Rome and Beijing.

The Wider Image: Turkey's referendum: myriad views, only two options
Retired teacher Melek Algin Iyidinc, 60, who says she will vote No in the referendum, poses in her garden in Artvin, Turkey, April 4, 2017. "I am a socialist and atheist. I have never voted for the AK Party. "Erdogan is not a person who settles with the power he has. He is an authoritarian, always asking for more power. There should be a point at which the people of this country stop this. The referendum gives us this opportunity. ItÕs time to say no," Iyidinc said. She said that Turkey's biggest problems are the lack of democracy, the economy and the environment: "The government recently gave license to mining companies to dig our green forests. It is going to cause a big environmental disaster. Only when these mining projects are cancelled can I have hope again for our future." REUTERS/Umit Bektas SEARCH "VOXPOPS UMIT" FOR THIS STORY.

A signboard of the Sanatan Sanstha ashram is seen in this picture near Ponda in the western state of Goa, India, October 15, 2015. The arrest of a member of India's Sanatan Sanstha sect following the murder of a well-known atheist has prompted renewed calls from some politicians to ban the Hindu group, as concerns grow the country's tradition of religious tolerance is being eroded. Opening the doors of its Goa headquarters to foreign journalists for the first time this month, Sanatan Sanstha told Reuters it had nothing to do with the February murder of Govind Pansare, and its mission was opposed to violence in all forms. Instead, its members are preparing for the advent of a divine Hindu kingdom in India within eight years. To Match Insight INDIA-RELIGION/ Picture taken October 15, 2015. REUTERS/Frank Jack Daniel

Afrobeat musician Seun Anikulapo-Kuti, 32, an ethnic Yoruba, poses with his dog on an open terrace at the Fela museum in Lagos February 1, 2015. Anikulapo-Kuti is the son of Nigeria's music legend Fela Kuti. He believes Boko Haram is not a new kind of revolutionary group but an entity created for some kind of political disturbances in Nigeria. Reuters photographer Akintunde Akinleye photographed Nigerians and asked them about their views on the elections as well as their hopes and concerns for the country. Nigeria's agreement to delay this week's election on the advice of security forces creates a worrying echo for some of the annulment of 1993's democratic vote by a military government. The election in Africa's biggest economy, initially scheduled to take place this Saturday, was set to be the closest fought since the end of military dictatorship in 1999. President Goodluck Jonathan is seeking re-election in a contest with main opposition candidate Muhammadu Buhari, himself a former military ruler.

Dominique Bons shows a photo of her son Nicolas, a young convert to Islam who has died fighting in Syria, during an interview with Reuters in Toulouse, southwestern France, March 10, 2014. France plays into the hands of Islamist rebel recruiters by jailing young people on their way to fight in Syria and must find a way to intervene earlier in support of their parents, said the mother of two boys killed in the country. Bons was sent a text message last year saying her 30-year-old son had been "martyred" on Dec. 22 driving a truck bomb in the Syrian city of Homs. He grew up in a middle class suburb to atheist parents but converted to Islam in 2009. Like his younger half-brother who died in Syria months earlier, Nicolas joined the al Qaeda splinter group, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Picture taken March 10, 2014.

The groom, Brendan Hastings and bride, Suzy Addis are covered in confetti after their Humanist Wedding at the Millhouse in the village of Slane, County Meath July 17, 2013. Traditionally Catholic Ireland has allowed atheist wedding ceremonies this year for the first time, but the few people certified to celebrate them are overwhelmed by the hundreds of couples seeking their services.

Signs in support of atheism are seen during the "Rock Beyond Belief" festival at Fort Bragg army base in North Carolina March 31, 2012. The atheist-themed festival drew hundreds of people to Fort Bragg on Saturday for what was believed to be the first-ever event held on a U.S. military base for service members who do not have religious beliefs. Organizers said they hoped the "Rock Beyond Belief" event at Fort Bragg would spur equal treatment toward nonbelievers in the armed forces and help lift the stigma for approximately 295,000 active duty personnel who consider themselves atheist, agnostic or without a religious preference.
