In San Fernando City, Philippines, a penitent lies on the ground outside a church while a boy holds his whip on Holy Wednesday. While the Roman Catholic Church has urged Filipinos to refrain from self-flagellation, many faithful continue to subject themselves to the punishment during Holy Week as a form of penance for their sins.

In Afgahnistan, wounded U.S. soldiers lie on the ground after a suicide attack north of Kabul that killed at least 10 people, including three NATO service members. It was the latest in a string of attacks as the spring “fighting season” gets underway.
