World in Review

In this inaugural post of World in Review, we present a collection of five photo galleries curated by Associated Press photo editors from each region of the world: Asia, Europe and Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the United States.

 

This month’s selection from Asia includes Pope Francis’ much-anticipated trip to Sri Lanka and the Philippines, the Air Asia jet disaster and highlights from the Australian Open. In Europe and Africa, millions respond to the Charlie Hebdo office shootings.

In Latin America and Caribbean, riders compete in the Dakar Rally 2015 and Cubans react after the U.S. announced it would resume diplomatic relations with the country after 54 years. 

In the Middle East, people mark the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad and the start of a New Year. In the U.S., revelers gather in Times Square to celebrate New Year’s Eve and a winter snowstorm blows across the northeast.
