The Week in Pictures | November 5 – 11, 2012

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

America went to the polls this week and reelected President Obama to a second term. More Photos. Reactions outside the U.S. to the presidential election included Indian students in New Delhi cheering Obama, and villagers in Kogelo, Kenya, home to Sarah Obama, the president’s step-grandmother,  celebrating his reelection.

New York City began rationing gasoline sales on Friday in response to distribution problems in the wake of  Hurricane Sandy.  In Florida,  the Lake Worth Pier  reopened Friday after being closed because of hurricane damage.

Ahead of Veterans Day, people weave their way through a field of more than 2,000 American flags placed to honor veterans and active-duty military at a middle school in California, and workers in the Philippines prepare the Manila American Cemetery in Taguig City. American and Filipino troops killed in World War II are buried at the cemetery.

A deadly earthquake rattled Guatemala on Wednesday, knocking out electricity, destroying dozens of buildings and killing at least 39 people, with many more missing or buried, President Otto Perez Molina said. More Photos

In Syria, a rebel fighter claims victory after launching a shoulder-fired missile toward a building where Syrian troops were positioned. The uprising against President Bashar Assad started with peaceful demonstrations in March last year, but has since morphed into a bloody civil war. Activists say more than 36,000 people have been killed in 19 months of fighting. More Photos

A parade in Red Square commemorated a 1941 event when Soviet soldiers marched through the square to the front lines of World War II. And in Beijing,  paramilitary policemen stand guard near the Great Hall of the People ahead of the  Chinese Communist Party’s 18th National Congress. The once-a-decade event installs new leadership to run the world’s second-largest economy.

Elsewhere, a Santa Claus holds gifts during the opening of the Santa Claus post office in Germany; thousands of ultraconservative Muslims rallied in the Egyptian capital, demanding the country’s new constitution be based on the rulings of Islamic law,  or Sharia; and artists wait to perform during the opening ceremony of the first Intangible Cultural Heritage Exhibition of Chinese Traditional Art.

Add stops in Kenya, Greece, Spain, Nepal, Thailand, Hong Kong, Bulgaria and the West Bank to round out the report.
