Clashes in Congo, a life jacket "graveyard" in London and more of Monday's best photos.

Rahela Sidiqi, a trustee of Women for Refugee Women and originally from Afghanistan, poses for a photograph amid lifejackets used by refugees to cross the sea to Europe as they are laid out in London's Parliament Square on Sept. 19. 

As world leaders gather in New York at the United Nations migration summit, Parliament Square was covered in what organizers are calling a "life jacket graveyard."

Some 2,500 life jackets used by refugees and migrants, including 625 used by children, were laid on the grounds on Monday, to highlight the thousands that have drowned or gone missing.
