Giuseppe Paterno, 96, Italy's oldest student, takes his final exam online, for his undergraduate degree that he has been studying for in history and philosophy at the University of Palermo, using a laptop at his home, due to social distancing measures implemented during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Palermo, Italy, June 23, 2020. Paterno confessed to a little unease with the video calls that replaced classroom teaching during the coronavirus shutdown, but said he was not put off by the disease itself after the war and everything else he had been through in life. "All of that strengthened us, all of my peer group, all of those who are still alive," he said. "It didn't really scare us that much."

Burutu wasn't among those seized by police. He was still preparing for the party in a hotel room with friends when the raid took place. But even though he wasn't arrested, the raid also changed his life. He says he has been ostracised by relatives. "So many of my family members don't want to see me because of this issue," he said.

Morris Nwosu, a Nigeria football fan reacts in relief after their Africa Cup of Nations 2019 (Afcon) match against Cameroon, at a bar in Kuchingoro, Abuja, Nigeria July 6, 2019. He said: "Nigeria's victory today will boost its Image around the world, before now, you all know that Cameroon has been our problem in terms of African football; it is either they win, terminate or stop us in major competitions. But I thank God that today we beat them. Football affects my community in so, so many ways. Football is a like a binding factor, not only in my community but in Nigeria as a whole, as you can see here in this place now, we all came from different tribes but once it's football we all come together, watch the game together, we jubilate together and would still have mourn together if we have lost the match today." International football can bring unimaginable joy to people from all walks of life but can also leave them distraught beyond comprehension, and that range of emotions reaches maximum exposure at the moment the ball hits the net and dreams are realized or shattered." Reuters photographers across the continent have captured those reactions in a series of telling images during the Africa Cup of Nations, which reaches its pinnacle when Algeria and Senegal meet in the final on Friday.

Natalia has been on maternity leave for nine months and is going back to work in second half of March. "It's pleasant that you'll go back to doing what you were doing before the maternity leave, going back to the previous rhythm of life. But at the end of the day, of course, the child gives you far more positive emotions. Of course, I would like to somehow balance that lifestyle and this one, so as to give equally to the child. At the same time, going out to work still means that I will be gone for most of the day and would be able to spend time with the kid only in the evening and on weekends." Statutory maternity leave in Russia can be as long as three years. It can be claimed by any relative - a mother, father, grandmother, grandfather or child's guardian. Recipients receive their average monthly income for a period of 140 days - 70 days before and 70 after giving birth - but this sum is capped at a maximum total of 301,000 roubles. The maternity leave is paid by the employer, which is then reimbursed by the state. After this initial period, recipients are paid 40% of their average monthly income for up to 1.5 years, but no more than 26,152 roubles a month. Pay is not guaranteed for the period between 1.5 and three years. During the whole period of maternity leave, employer is obliged to guarantee the working position to the mother or the carer.

The Wider Image: In volcano's wake, Guatemalan town became a cemetery
There was no time to eat. Sunday family lunches were interrupted, the food left on the table. Children abandoned toys, and clothes still hung on lines in backyards. Animals died petrified. Guatemalan authorities reacted slowly to signs of the Fuego volcano's impending eruption on June 3, contributing to one of the most tragic natural disasters in recent Guatemalan history. The volcano rumbled to life early that Sunday. By midday, it was spewing ash in smoking columns miles high that then fell, dusting a wide swath of the Central American country. But with the mountain's rumbles and the first ash showers, many villagers made a fatal bet to stay put, gambling that luck that had protected them for decades would hold once again. In the afternoon things took a turn for the worse. Tons of ash propelled by scalding, toxic gases poured down Fuego's flanks. By the time most families in the worst-hit hamlets of El Rodeo and San Miguel de Los Lotes knew what was happening, they only had time to run, if that. At least 110 people have died and close to 200 are thought buried under the rubble in the hamlet on the fertile lower slopes of the volcano. Fuego - Spanish for "fire" - rises between the regions of Sacatepequez, Escuintla and Chimaltenango about 30 miles (50 km) from Guatemala City, the nation's capital.
