Yaneidi Guzman, 38, who works as a street sweeper works in Caracas, Venezuela, March 20, 2018. Guzman has lost a third of her weight over the past three years as Venezuela's economic collapse made food unaffordable and she now hopes the opposition will succeed in bringing urgently needed foreign aid. She is one of many Venezuelans suffering from malnutrition. "It's not that I want to be rich, or a millionaire", Guzman said. "But I do want to give my children a good future, to make sure I can take them to the doctors when they get ill... and that they eat well."

The Wider Image: Remembering the war dead
Every year in November, villages, towns and cities across Britain honour those who have lost their lives in war on Remembrance Sunday. While Queen Elizabeth leads tributes at a national service of remembrance at The Cenotaph war memorial in central London, various neighbourhoods also hold their own local marches and memorials. For the last eight years, Reuters photographer Kevin Coombs has attended the annual parade in his London neighbourhood of Fulham, capturing on camera the military personnel and brass bands taking to the streets as well as those watching them from the sidelines. From residents looking out their windows to dog walkers and a road sweeper stopping in their tracks, his pictures show people watching the march from near and far, some deeply moved by the occasion.

The announcement came just as Pope Francis, who played an instrumental role in the diplomatic opening late last year, prepares to visit Cuba this weekend before heading to the United States next week.

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY 
Armed pro-Russian separatists (R) escort a column of Ukrainian prisoners of war as they walk across central Donetsk in this August 24, 2014 file photo.

It was an awful sight: A column of jaded and haphazardly dressed people walking along the street surrounded by armed rebels. Citizens were shouting curses and throwing eggs at them. The column was followed by street sweepers washing the road after the prisoners. The scene looked like a farce or copy of the parade of German prisoners in World War Two in Moscow in 1945.

I think this image perfectly shows the negative emotions of conflict: weakness, devastation, shame, fear on one side and spite, aggression, rage and desire for revenge on the other.

It reminded of a quote 'History repeats itself, first as a tragedy, second as a farce'. - Maxim Shemetov REUTERS/Maxim Shemetov (UKRAINE - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

An unidentified man, who calls himself Mangetsu-man (Mr. Full Moon), pauses as he cleans Nihonbashi bridge using a broom with a volunteer, while clad in a costume featuring a full moon for a head, in Tokyo August 25, 2014. While most superheroes fight crime, for one such Japanese hero the enemy is garbage and his "super" weapons are a broom, a dust pan and an army of volunteers who have joined his mission. Calling himself Mangetsu-man, he first appeared on the streets of Tokyo last year without any publicity or fanfare and mainly cleans around the city's Nihonbashi bridge. Historically, Nihonbashi bridge is Tokyo's most famous bridge until an expressway was constructed over it shortly before the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics, and ruined what was for many its iconic status. Mangetsu-man is one among many who are petitioning for the government to get rid of the overhead highway and clean it up ahead of the next Tokyo Summer Olympics in 2020.

Unemployed street newspaper vendor Karsten offers the Strassenfeger (Street Sweeper) street newspaper and its Superhobo comic supplement in front of the main train station in Berlin January 13, 2014. He has the rippling muscles, a cloak and standard-issue briefs, but otherwise "Superhobo" is not your average comic-book hero: the torn bodysuit, craggy face, shaggy beard, woollen cap and bottle of beer in his fist tell of a life on the streets.

Street cleaners pick trash up on the first day of regular service after a 13-day strike by street sweepers in Madrid November 18, 2013. The cleaners walked off the job on November 5 after three companies with maintenance contracts with city hall sought to freeze salaries and lay off 1,134 out of 6,000 workers. After marathon talks from Friday to Sunday, union representatives agreed to a deal under which no workers would be laid off, but every worker would have to take six weeks without pay each year through 2017.
