Egyptians held a nationwide Victory March on Friday to celebrate the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak's 30-year rule one week ago, to protect the revolution and to remind new military rulers of the power of the street. Hundreds of thousands joined the rallies, which are also a memorial to the 365 people who died in the 18-day uprising, with many Egyptians expressing their intention to guard their newly-won prospect of democracy.

Thousands of Tunisians are fleeing Libya, many across its western land border, after a bloody crackdown on protests against the rule of Muammar Gaddafi, state media reported on Tuesday. Tunisia has at least 30,000 nationals in Libya and officials fear they could become targets because of Tunisia's role in inspiring uprisings across the Arab world. Tunisia's leader was overthrown in January, and Egypt's president fell on Feb. 11. REUTERS/Yannis Behrakis

09. Muslim girls smile as they work in a rice field in the troubled Yala province in southern Thailand February 28, 2011. Separatists are blamed for most of the attacks on Thailand's predominantly Muslim deep south, which often target Buddhists and Muslims associated with the Thai state, such as police, soldiers, government officials and teachers. No credible group has claimed responsibility for near daily drive-by shootings and bombings, which continue unabated, despite a massive counterinsurgency effort. Yala and Pattani are two of three Muslim-dominated provinces bordering Malaysia where more than 4,300 people, both Muslims and Buddhists, have been killed in a low-level insurgency since 2004.

Children bathe at St. Ambrose church in Angree, Abidjan March 1, 2011, a temporary refuge for people fleeing from clashes between forces loyal to incumbent president Laurent Gbagbo and his rival Alassane Ouattara. Security in Ivory Coast is deteriorating, with gun battles between rival forces most of last week and wider hostilities resuming across a north-south ceasefire line that had been largely quiet since the 2002-3 civil war ended in stalemate. Insurgents believed to back Ouattara now control of most of the northern Abidjan suburb of Abobo after the clashes. REUTERS/Thierry Gouegnon

19. A boy bats during a baseball practice in the coastal town of Ocumare February 25, 2011. Boys as young as five years old are training in Venezuela's Little Leagues. Some of them live in the city's slums or poorer neighborhoods and think baseball could be a ticket to a different life. Being a major league baseball player is the dream of thousands of children, but in Venezuela it is also a chance for a brighter future. In 2010 a record 58 Venezuelans played in Major League Baseball in the United States, making up more than a quarter of all the players born outside the U.S. Between 1939 and 2010 a total of 258 Venezuelans have gone on to play in major league teams in the United States.
