It was a busy year if you’re into natural disasters. The Haiti earthquake, floods in Pakistan, earthquakes in Chili, an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a less televised oil spill in China, volcanos erupting in Iceland and Indonesia and the list goes on. In between these we’ve seen protests against governement cut backs due to the economic crisis in Greece, France and almost every other 1st World nation. And then there are the usual suspects. Still no peace in the Middle East, sex scandals in the church, war in Iraq, war in Afghanistan and China’s march to world domination. These are the first 100 of 200 pictures we’ve chosen as some of the best depicting what was what in 2010. Which stand out most for you? Make sure you check part 2

04. Graves are seen through the window of an abandoned cemetery care-taker's hut in Cape Town's Khayelitsha township February 27, 2010. Many of those buried in the cemetery died from AIDS or related complications such as tuberculosis (TB). Some 5.7 million people live with HIV/AIDS in South Africa, more per capita than any other country - while 33 million people live with the disease worldwide. Despite having the world's highest number of people receiving antiretroviral therapy -- about 850,000 -- there are millions more who cannot access the life-saving drugs they need, either because they are too expensive or simply not available. This leads to more than 350,000 HIV related deaths each year in the country. REUTERS/Finbarr O'Reilly
