Pictures of the Year: A Picture and its Story
People are evacuated by a member of security forces at the scene where explosions and gunshots were heard at the Dusit hotel compound, in Nairobi, Kenya, January 15, 2019. Reuters Photographer Baz Ratner: "I dumped my motorbike next to the front gate of the upmarket Dusit hotel complex in Nairobi. I entered the first building with armed police. A boobytrap hand grenade rolled out from behind a door. Luckily it did not explode. KenyaÕs paramilitary General Services Unit ran in through the front gate and I ran with them to the second building. The GSU started to help civilians from the first floor to safety. While the GSU was escorting one of these groups, Officer Ali Kombo formed a line of civilians behind him. When he got in front of the hotel, he pointed his rifle at the hotel where the militants were holed up. I positioned myself between the group and a wall and took a few pictures. His face would later be splashed all over local media, making him a national hero. I managed to stay inside the building even though other journalists were cleared out. There were a few foreign security operators wearing body armour Ð and so was I Ð so maybe I blended in. If someone agreed to speak to a journalist, I'd call the office and let them do the interview. I also collected phone numbers we were able to use later to reconstruct the attack. People were speaking freely to me because I had a spare battery pack, and everyone needed to charge their phones Ð including the police. It took all night to free the trapped civilians."

Thousands of migrants stormed across Macedonia's border on Saturday, overwhelming security forces who threw stun grenades and lashed out with batons in an increasingly futile bid to stem their flow through the Balkans to western Europe. Some had spent days in the open with little or no access to food or water after Macedonia on Thursday declared a state of emergency and sealed its borders to migrants, many of them refugees from war in Syria and other conflicts in the Middle East.

A migrant holds the hand of a woman carrying a child, as they walk towards Gevgelija, Macedonia after crossing Greece's border into Macedonia, August 22, 2015. Thousands of migrants stormed across Macedonia's border on Saturday, overwhelming security forces who threw stun grenades and lashed out with batons in an increasingly futile bid to stem their flow through the Balkans to western Europe. Some had spent days in the open with little or no access to food or water after Macedonia on Thursday declared a state of emergency and sealed its borders to migrants, many of them refugees from war in Syria and other conflicts in the Middle East.

An Albanian man carries a child to a US Marine CH53 Super Stallion helicopter as it lands at Golame beach near the port of Durres, in this March 16, 1997 file picture.

Yannis Behrakis: I was covering the unrest in Albania following the pyramid scheme failures. Albanian civilians had lost $1.2 billion and Albania descended into civil disorder and violence. The government was toppled and 2,000 people were killed.

My late colleague Kurt Schork and I were the only members of the press staying in a hotel where the armed owner protected us from bandits who would rob every journalist who dared to come alone to cover the story. The owner insisted on placing Kalashnikovs and hand grenades in the closets of our rooms "to protect ourselves if needed," as he said.

On March 16 we drove to Golame beach where two U.S. helicopters had landed, kicking off a blizzard of sand as hundreds of desperate Albanians gathered in the area, hoping to get a lift out of the country. Blinded by the sand I shot a few pictures when an Albanian man holding his child ran towards the helicopter. About a dozen U.S. Marines jumped off the Super Stallion and pointed their M-16 assault rifles at the Albanians.

The man with the child was begging the soldiers to let him in onboard. The Marines were clearly surprised by the crowd and asked me what was going on, and if I saw any foreigners trying to leave. I explained that these people were just desperate and wanted to leave Albania, and that they thought the helicopters were there to take them to safety. The situation was getting out of control and a few warning shots were fired and people were beaten back with rifle butts.

The fact that we decided to take the risk and stay in Durres paid off. Papers all over the world ran these pictures on their front pages. REUTERS/Yannis Behrakis/Files (ALBANIA - Tags: CIVIL UNREST TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY CONFLICT)
