2016: A Picture and its Story
ATTENTION EDITORS - VISUAL COVERAGE OF SCENES OF INJURY OR DEATH A body is seen on the ground in Nice, France July 15, 2016, after the Bastille Day truck attack on July 14. Eric Gaillard: 'I was at home, on holiday after a gruelling few weeks covering the Euro 2016 soccer championships, when a colleague called from Paris to say a truck had hit people in central Nice. I assumed it was a traffic accident - not something we would usually cover. But then I received an alert on my phone, the local authorities announcing there had been an attack. I didn't stop to wonder what it was, I grabbed my cameras and set out on my motorbike. I couldn't get through on my motorbike and, as I parked, I noticed there was a body lying on the curb. It was when I looked into my rearview mirror that I saw all the other bodies just behind me. Around a dozen bodies, some already covered with tablecloths taken from nearby restaurants, lay on the seaside promenade. Police and soldiers - many pointing their guns - were still in a state of confusion. The conditions were very difficult, it was dark, police trying to stop us work ... and some people there were aggressive. I understood. The situation was very chaotic. The doll photo went viral on the Internet, often mis-captioned by the site, saying it showed a dead child beneath the foil emergency blanket. But in fact nobody knows for sure the age of the victim. Given size of the victim, I don't think it was a child. I don't know why the doll is there. Was it a parent who was with a child - hence the doll? Did someone put the doll there at some point? Everyone has asked me. When you go to a war you know it's a hostile environment, you expect to see some unpleasant things but I was very shaken by what I saw that night because the horror had come home to my city, Nice. The attack happened just 500 meters from my home and during France's traditionally festive Bastille Day setting.' REUTERS/Eric Gaillard TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY SEARCH "2016 PIX" FO

A Palestinian looks at the damage to a house, where medical officials said fragments from a missile fired by an Israeli aircraft killed a 10-year-old Palestinian boy, in the northern Gaza Strip March 12, 2016. The missile was fired hours after militants launched rockets into Israel. A statement by the Israeli military said aircraft had targeted four militant training camps belonging to Hamas after four missiles landed in open areas in southern Israel late on Friday. No casualties were reported from the rocket strikes. Residents of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip said the boy, Yassin Abu Khoussa, died after missile debris hit his home, which is situated next to a militant training camp.

The new logo - in electric blue versus its previous dark Prussian blue - threads the arch symbol of Thyssen through the three-rings symbol of Krupp. Chief Executive Heinrich Hiesinger said Thyssenkrupp, which has made billions of euros of cost cuts in the past few years, would spend less than 10 million euros ($10.7 million) on the brand refresh.

A miner points his headlight on the walls inside an unregulated coal mine in Sabinas January 15, 2013. Everyday, thousands of miners go to work in the unregulated coals mines of northern Mexico knowing they may not return. Facing death on a daily basis has become a fact of life for these men as they struggle to scrape out a living in an environment bereft of rules and regulations, lacking even the most basic equipment. Unregulated mines are legal in Mexico. A company buys or leases land from a cooperative and is legally allowed to mine on it, but is not subject to any regulations. Despite the dangers, some 30,000 miners find themselves willing to take the risk, approaching their job with a matter-of-fact philosophy. Picture taken January 15, 2013.

A woman dressed as "Zwarte Piet" takes part in a traditional parade in central Brussels
A woman dressed as "Zwarte Piet" (Black Pete), the helper of Saint Nicholas (C), takes part in a traditional parade in central Brussels December 1, 2012. The Netherlands and Belgium are two countries that pride themselves on progressive laws and open societies, but critics say they are stuck in the dark ages when it comes to depictions of Santa Claus and his helpers. Saint Nicholas, or "Sinterklaas" in Dutch, brings presents to children on December 5 in the Netherlands and on December 6 in Belgium, and is always accompanied by at least one assistant dressed in 17th century costume who has a blackened face.

Villagers stand behind newly installed electric poles at Meerwada village of Guna district in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh June 19, 2012. Life in the remote Indian village of Meerwada used to grind to a standstill as darkness descended. Workers downed tools, kids strained to see their school books under the faint glow of aged kerosene lamps and adults struggled to carry out the most basic of household chores. The arrival of solar power last year has changed all that. On a humid evening splashed with rain, fans whirr, children sit cross-legged to swat up on their Hindi and delighted people can actually see what they are eating and drinking.
