The Week in Pictures | May 27 – June 2, 2013

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

This week climbers navigated the knife-edge ridge just below the Hillary Step on their way to the summit of Mt. Everest. Sixty years ago — May 29, 1953 — Sir Edmund Hillary and climbing partner Tenzing Norgay were the first to set foot on the summit of Mt. Everest, the highest point on Earth.

In Southern California, the Powerhouse fire has charred more than 1,000 acres. Also in the Southland, Los Angeles County prosecutors file a murder charge against a man whose pit bulls mauled a woman to death in Littlerock; anti-fracking protestors plead with officers to let them deliver 100,000 signed petitions to the governor’s office urging a fracking ban in California; the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation presents $23,000 worth of musical instruments to Compton High School’s music program; and the L.A. Kings advance to the Western Conference finals.

Elsewhere, firefighters in Barcelona, Spain, burn a mock coffin bearing the words “RIP public services” during a protest against austerity measures;  schoolchildren watch as Inuka, a male polar bear, swims in its pool enclosure at the Singapore Zoo; and Baby No. 59, named after his incubator number, rests in a hospital in Pujiang County in eastern China’s Zhejiang province. The mother of the Chinese newborn trapped in a sewer pipe had raised the initial alarm and was present for the entire two-hour rescue but did not admit to giving birth until confronted by police.

There’s more — come take a look.

    Really. That's all of the coverage you're going to give to the protests that are occurring all over Turkey? It's gone far beyond a tree when the police, acting on the orders of the Prime Minister are using tear gas, water cannons and rubber bullets on what had been a peaceful sit in.
