Each week we bring you the very best in visual journalism.

A dramatic scene is set in the Philippines, where a man floats in the water with some of his belongings as his neighborhood is engulfed in fire in a slum area in Manila. Officials say the fire that swept through a sprawling squatters’ colony on Manila Bay’s rim has left two people missing and about 10,000 homeless.

In Syria, a woman shows her ink-dipped finger after casting her vote in parliamentary elections. Despite violence, opponents continue to call for the ouster of President Bashar Assad. Later in the week, two powerful blasts struck Damascus during morning rush hour, killing scores, wounding dozens and prompting the U.N. observer chief to appeal for help to end the bloodshed ravaging Syria.

On the sports front, a unusual image made with a selective focus lens shows a golfer warming up on the driving range prior to Day 2 of the Madeira Islands Open in Portugal; Danica Patrick sits in her car in the garage area during practice at Darlington Raceway; journalists are reflected in the Euro 2012 tournament cup in Kiev; and a diver is silhouetted by the sun during a training session at the Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Center in Florida.
