Weather largely dominated the headlines over the past week. Heavy snow hit the northeast United States as well as Afghanistan, where avalanches and freezing weather killed dozens.

In the U.S., we also saw continued protests against President Trump's executive orders and plans, most notably his travel ban, which was rejected by several judges.
