Photos of the week: 11/13 - 11/20


The headlines this past week were consistently dominated by news out of Paris after last Friday's horrific terrorist attacks that killed over 100 people and wounded hundreds more. The world lit up its monuments blue, white and red in support of France as police in the capital continued to hunt for answers and the remaining perpetrators.

This week we also saw the first same-sex marriage ceremony held in Ireland, protests as racial tensions rose in Minneapolis, and scenes from the ongoing migrant crisis out of Syria.

Click through the slideshow above for the best photos from all of these stories and more, and be sure to check back next weekend for our selection of the best photography from the coming seven days.
