2016: A Picture and its Story
ATTENTION EDITORS - VISUAL COVERAGE OF SCENES OF INJURY OR DEATH A body is seen on the ground in Nice, France July 15, 2016, after the Bastille Day truck attack on July 14. Eric Gaillard: 'I was at home, on holiday after a gruelling few weeks covering the Euro 2016 soccer championships, when a colleague called from Paris to say a truck had hit people in central Nice. I assumed it was a traffic accident - not something we would usually cover. But then I received an alert on my phone, the local authorities announcing there had been an attack. I didn't stop to wonder what it was, I grabbed my cameras and set out on my motorbike. I couldn't get through on my motorbike and, as I parked, I noticed there was a body lying on the curb. It was when I looked into my rearview mirror that I saw all the other bodies just behind me. Around a dozen bodies, some already covered with tablecloths taken from nearby restaurants, lay on the seaside promenade. Police and soldiers - many pointing their guns - were still in a state of confusion. The conditions were very difficult, it was dark, police trying to stop us work ... and some people there were aggressive. I understood. The situation was very chaotic. The doll photo went viral on the Internet, often mis-captioned by the site, saying it showed a dead child beneath the foil emergency blanket. But in fact nobody knows for sure the age of the victim. Given size of the victim, I don't think it was a child. I don't know why the doll is there. Was it a parent who was with a child - hence the doll? Did someone put the doll there at some point? Everyone has asked me. When you go to a war you know it's a hostile environment, you expect to see some unpleasant things but I was very shaken by what I saw that night because the horror had come home to my city, Nice. The attack happened just 500 meters from my home and during France's traditionally festive Bastille Day setting.' REUTERS/Eric Gaillard TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY SEARCH "2016 PIX" FO

A dead Velella velella sits on the sand in Pebble Beach
A dead Velella velella sits on the sand in Pebble Beach, California, August 26, 2014. Millions of the jellyfish-like creatures have washed up on beaches along the U.S. West Coast recently, giving the shoreline a purple gleam and, at times, an unpleasant odor. Known as Velella velella to scientists, and more informally as "by-the-wind sailors," the creatures regularly cluster offshore each spring. But it is unusual for so many to wash ashore at once, especially this late in the summer, according to Steve Rumrill, an expert at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

A Ferrari 458 Spider is loaded onto a truck after being bought by a young Chinese at its showroom in Shenzhen in this May 28, 2012 file picture. Luxury brands banking on a China rebound to boost sales may be in for an unpleasant surprise: weak demand in the world's second largest luxury market may last longer than the economic slowdown as Beijing cracks down on conspicuous consumption. The government imposed a "frugal working style" rule on its civil servants, which goes into effect on October 1, 2012, barring them from spending public money on lavish banquets or fancy cars, and from accepting expensive gifts.

Germany's Britta Steffen reacts after winning in the women's 50m freestyle final at the German Swimming Cup in Berlin in this April 23, 2008 file photo. Steffen almost seems pleased to see the people from doping control whenever they show up for their unannounced tests. "It's another chance to prove you're clean. Unfortunately we can't influence how often we're tested. But if it were up to me I'd give a sample every day. I don't have anything to hide," the German swimmer told Reuters after being subjected to the unpleasant scrutiny involved in providing urine and blood samples for about the 12th time this year. Steffen, 24, set a 100 metres world record and won four gold medals at the European championships in 2006, and is one of the favourites for the freestyle sprints at the Beijing Olympics.

Three decades after independence and 13 years after the end of a civil war, Mozambicans are asking whether the sub-machinegun is a national rallying point or simply an unpleasant leftover from the Marxist era.
