An aerial view shows the toxic flood in Hungary. There were still no estimates of the financial damage wrought by the sludge -- waste from bauxite refining that has a strong caustic effect -- over 1,920 to 2,400 acres. Five people were killed and more than 150 injured in the disaster.

Protesters demonstrate to free Liu Xiaobo, who won the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize, near the China Liaison Office in Hong Kong. Despite a warning to the Nobel committee and months of behind-the-scenes pressure, China failed to avert a harsh slap in the face -- the awarding of the Peace Prize to the jailed dissident. Beijing predictably slammed the win for the 54-year-old Liu -- the co-author of a bold manifesto calling for political reform who was jailed in December for 11 years for subversion, a sentence that won global condemnation.

Each week we bring you the best images from around the world in our Week in Pictures photo gallery.

The images out of Hungary were devastating this week as millions of gallons of toxic red sludge from a chemical plant flooded neighboring towns and found its way to the Danube River.

In China, protesters rallied to free jailed dissident Liu Xiaobo, who won the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize, and fishermen tried to push a stranded boat back to the sea in Qionghai.

Europe reclaimed the Ryder Cup in the final singles match, and at a walkout by London Underground workers forced commuters to find alternate forms of transportation.

Sports played a role also this week. A Ghana weightlifter was pinned under the bar after an unsuccessful lift during the men’s 69-kilogram competition at the  as the 19th Commonwealth Games, and Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers made stops in London and Spain for exhibition games.

Add stops in Australia, the Philippines, Pakistan, Venezuela, Vatican City and more — because there’s always more. Take a look.
