2016: A Picture and its Story
ATTENTION EDITORS - VISUAL COVERAGE OF SCENES OF INJURY OR DEATH Jennilyn Olayres, 26, weeps over the body of her partner, who was killed on a street in Pasay city, Metro Manila, Philippines July 23, 2016. Czar Dancel: 'When the image of Olayres weeping as she cradled the body of her slain partner went viral in the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte called it melodramatic. He mentioned the image of Olayres in his state of the union address and said media had tried to portray it as being like the Michelangelo's Pieta, the sculpture of Mary holding the body of Jesus. Six were assassinated on that night in Manila, among them Michael Siaron, Olayres's 29-year-old partner, who was shot dead by unknown assailants on motorcycles. Over recent months I have been regularly covering the killings of suspected drug dealers. During the night journalists and photographers from different media organisations work as a team. Siaron's was the last of several deaths we covered that night. It is always shocking to arrive at the scene of a death. I took a couple of images before I noticed Olayres cradling Siaron's body. A piece of cardboard was left next to his corpse with the word "pusher" written on it. "A friend called out that Michael was shot. I ran out to see him," Olayres said in a rundown part of the capital's Pasay area. Olayres concedes that Siaron was a drug user but says it is impossible he was a dealer because they were too poor and could barely pay for their next meal. "They must kill the ones who don't deserve to live anymore, the ones who are a menace to society. Because they cause harm to others. But not the innocent people," she said. "I don't need the public's sympathy. I don't need the president to notice us. I know that he doesn't like this kind of people. But for me, I just hope that they get the true offenders." Asked if she had a message to tell Duterte, she said: "kill drugs, not people."' REUTERS/Czar Dancel SEARCH "2016 PIX" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "THE WI

The Wider Image: Trapped in Serbia, migrants shelter in warehouse
In the rundown warehouse along the Sava River bank, a few hundred metres away from prime real estate in Belgrade, migrants lit pieces of wood they collected to warm up with the temperature near zero. They sleep on red blankets laid on the concrete floor and there are no toilets around. More than 100,000 migrants have passed through Serbia this year, mainly from countries such as Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, to seek sanctuary in the wealthy countries of Europe. But border closures have left many stranded. According to the U.N. refugee agency, around 6,400 migrants are currently registered in Serbia, while local non-governmental organisations say their number is close to 10,000. They mostly arrive from Bulgaria and Macedonia. REUTERS/Marko Djurica SEARCH "MIGRANTS WAREHOUSE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

Most were released early on Tuesday after Ayhan and other lawmakers joined the refugees in a show of protest, but Ali and about 100 others remained at the basketball court of a rundown sports complex on the dusty outskirts of Suruc, he said by telephone.

When the man in charge of Libya's main border crossing with Egypt checks his staff rota every morning, he can count on a maximum of just 30 officers. The tiny force polices the northern tip of a 1,115 km (700 mile) desert border, where Egypt and its Western allies hope to prevent Islamist militants infiltrating to join fellow fighters on Egyptian territory, or sneaking back into the lawless OPEC producer to find safe haven. But hampered by a lack of manpower and equipment, worsened by a breakdown in state authority following the 2011 downfall of Muammar Gaddafi, Libya's border guards are struggling to contain the spreading anarchy. On paper, the Libyan interior ministry force in charge of the Musaid crossing into Egypt has 120 men on the payroll, but only 30 or so show up regularly for work. Up to 500 people a day, or between 100 and 150 vehicles, cross at the border post, a complex of rundown buildings with bullet holes in the walls from the 2011 uprising.

A clock, clues and locks are seen in an escape room at ExitPointGames in Budapest August 1, 2014. In a ramshackle old building in Budapest, tourists pay to be locked up in a room and try to escape by solving a series of mysterious clues, opening locks and finding their way out. Some 100 or so escape-room games have sprung up in the Hungarian capital in the last three years, becoming a top attraction for tourists. Escape games take advantage of Budapest's many decrepit cellars and old rundown houses. These same spots served as venues for the city's popular "ruin bars" in the past decade.
