Photos of the week: 3/11 - 3/18

The news this week was still greatly dominated by the race for president in the U.S., with intense campaigning around the Ohio primary which occurred on Tuesday. We also saw our fair share of animal news, with the opening of the Land of the Lions at the London Zoo as well as excitement around the annual Crufts dog show. We also saw extreme weather ranging from Mississippi to Spain.

Click through the slideshow above to see 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.
