The Week in Pictures | Oct. 18-24, 2010

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

Typhoon Megi wreaked havoc in Asia this week, where it left at least 10 people dead and forced more than 7,000 people to flee their homes in the Philippines and washed out rail lines in Vietnam. Students took to the streets in France, demonstrating against the government’s proposed pension law reform, while in Greece, 2,000 students marched in Athens to protest against planned education changes.

We took a walk in the park in Stavropol, Russia, where the autumn colors were shining bright; brought you images from a mass wedding ceremony for 3,200 brides and grooms in Yemen; and had a Maltese terrier getting primped before competition at the Asian Dog Show in Bangkok.

Want quirky? How about fishermen using slingshots to feed fish in Minsk, Belarus, a jockey competing in a buffalo race in southeastern Thailand, or a shot of the International Space Station as seen from Hungary? Still not enough? How about a Royal Parks employee in London carrying a disgruntled swan he caught on the street after it fled the coop?

Enjoy!
