A Picture and its Story: Reaching out to rescue a Rohingya woman
Hannah McKay was on her first foreign assignment photographing Rohingya Muslims in refugee camps in Bangladesh. Then she and other photographers heard around 5,000 more people were heading to the area, trying to find their way across the border from neighbouring Myanmar. Here is her account of what happened next: "We were standing, looking out over paddy fields and grasslands Ð lots of water and one thin path leading to the border with Myanmar. In the distance we could see a huge group of people. But they werenÕt moving. It was 4 oÕclock in the afternoon with only two hours left of daylight. So we decided to move towards them. It took us about an hour along the muddy path, meeting border guards and persuading them to let us pass. Then we saw thousands of refugees just sitting there, with more Bangladeshi border guards telling us to go back. We could see something was going on behind the crowd. So we waited for an opportunity to move closer, and thatÕs when we saw them. The crowd was sitting on a riverbank and behind them, about three metres below, in the river itself, there were just hundreds of refugees coming across every minute. There was no end to the people. And we were just photographing everyone coming towards us. Then this woman appeared. She got to the point where she needed to get up to the footpath where we were. But she was just exhausted. She didnÕt have anything left to get herself up. Two refugee men on her level were trying to push her up, which was when we reached out to help. Another Reuters photographer, Adnan Abidi, took a hand. Another photographer took another and I got her leg when she got within range. It was a case of dragging her. She lay there for a few minutes and then, I have no idea what happened to her. There were so many people round and it was chaos." REUTERS/Hannah McKay SEARCH "ROHINGYA PHOTOGRAPHERS" FOR THIS STORY.

A Picture and its Story: Tear gas scene from Jerusalem's "Day of Rage\
When Muslim elders called for a "Day of Rage" on Friday to protest at new Israeli security measures at Jerusalem's holiest site, photographer Ammar Awad knew where he had to be. A native of Jerusalem who has covered the city for Reuters for 17 years, Awad headed to Ras al-Amud, directly across the valley from the Old City, from where the Aqsa Mosque and the golden Dome of the Rock stand out in the near distance. Knowing there were likely to be clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinian worshippers, and that Muslims intended to pray in the street outside, he climbed up to the roof of a nearby mosque to gain a higher vantage point. "I know all these areas and the people know me, so it helps," said Awad, 36, explaining how he managed to gain access to the mosque, which was shut by the imam to ensure that the faithful held their prayers outside. "I was on the roof and took lots of pictures of the men praying in the street, with the Old City and the Dome of the Rock in the background," he explained. "After they finished praying, they started shouting 'Allah wa-Akbar' and some were chanting "I will sacrifice myself for al Aqsa" in Arabic. The Israeli police started to explode sound bombs to disperse the crowd. "I was going to come down, but I decided to stay and see what more pictures I could get." As the sound bombs erupted, many of those who had been praying started to run. Others were still completing their prayers as the scene turned chaotic. Awad fired off 20 frames as a tear gas canister was unleashed on the crowd. The light from the blast lit the scene, highlighting the colours as scores of men cowered from the bang. "I was lucky to get the picture," he said. "As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the picture of the day. The men were finishing prayers, there's al Aqsa and the Old City in the background - it told the whole story." REUTERS/Ammar Awad SEARCH "AWAD GAS" FOR THIS STORY.

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY
Four runners carry Adam Hurst down Boylston Street after his legs locked up during the 118th running of the Boston Marathon in Boston, Massachusetts in this April 21, 2014 file photo.

I was positioned near the Forum restaurant in case anything significant happened at the time and place of last year?s second bomb attack. I heard the crowd starting to make noise and noticed a man struggling but still standing, legs locked after just having passed 26 miles. The cheers from the sidelines were louder than anything I had heard all day, urging him on, but his body wouldn?t cooperate. That?s when a man, I think David Meyer, stopped his run and offered help.

Four runners decided to each take one of Hurst's limbs and haul him closer to the line. The moment Hurst's feet came off the ground the spectators erupted in a cheer and they set off faster than I was able to keep up with them on the sidewalk. Both as a journalist and a runner it mattered to me whether he finished on his own legs or theirs, but most importantly I knew it mattered to Hurst. The last thing I wanted was for him to see my picture published saying he didn't carry himself over that line.
Some folks have pointed out that this sort of moment is almost commonplace in marathons, and that's partly true. But just because what happened that day on Boylston Street isn't unprecedented doesn't mean it isn't special. The moment I was fortunate to witness sums up so much of what I love about this city, this sport, and this event in particular. - Dominick Reuter REUTERS/Dominick Reuter (UNITED STATES - Tags: SPORT ATHLETICS TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

Apple Inc unveiled on Tuesday an iPhone with a fingerprint scanner to help it stand out in a crowded field of similar smartphones, plus a cheaper plastic model for emerging markets that proved pricier than expected. Apple's millions of Chinese fans will celebrate the near-simultaneous launch of the latest iPhone in China and the United States, but one group will have little to cheer - the smugglers. An early launch of Apple's latest smartphone in China is expected to stifle a thriving grey market worth billions of dollars a year built around smuggling from Hong Kong, where in the past the U.S. tech giant's gadgets have gone on sale months before they reach official channels in the mainland.

Demonstrators, most unemployed, hold an assembly at their protest camp in Madrid, June 12, 2013. Members of the Asamblea de Parados de Fontarron (Unemployed assembly of Fontarron), most of them unemployed, set up a camp site late Saturday June 8, 2013 at the public park of their neighbourhood in Fontarron, Madrid, to protest against Spain's unemployment and the government's labour reform. At 27 percent in the first quarter, Spain's unemployment rate is the highest in the European Union after Greece, and even if the country pulls out of recession next year as economists forecast, job creation could lag for some time longer. The camp site was dismantled early Thursday June 13, 2013 by police on the grounds that it was illegal. Picture taken June 12, 2013. REUTERS/Susana Vera (SPAIN - Tags: SOCIETY CIVIL UNREST)

Slices of cucumber and a tomato slice are pictured in this illustration photo taken in Berlin May 30, 2011. A German hospital said on Monday it anticipates the deadly E. coli outbreak will worsen in the coming week as a virulent strain of the bacteria has so far killed 11 people and left more than 300 seriously ill, mostly in northern Germany. The outbreak of E. coli-caused hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS), a serious complication of a type of E. coli known as Shiga toxin-producing E. Coli (STEC) is the largest ever of its kind in Germany and worldwide, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said in a risk assessment. German authorities have warned consumers to avoid eating raw cucumbers, lettuces and tomatoes and has removed some products from store shelves.
