TOPSHOTS A woman walks on a snowy road, on March 12, 2013 in Caen, northwestern France, during a heavy snow storm on France. Overnight Monday nearly 500 cars were blocked near Cherbourg where snowdrifts piled up 60 centimetres (almost two feet) as winds reached 100 kilometres (more than 60 miles) an hour. Twenty-six regions in northwest and northern France were put on orange alert because of heavy snowfalls, which Meteo France said were "remarkable for the season because of the expected quantity and length of time".

Feeding time

A snorkeler swims next to a whale shark as it is fed from a feeder boat off the beach of Tan-awan, Oslob, in the southern Philippines island of Cebu March 1, 2013. Tan-awan, in the southern Philippines island of Cebu, used to be a sleepy village that never saw tourists unless they were lost or in transit. Yet now they flock there by the hundreds - to swim with whale sharks, the world's largest fish. Whale sharks are lured to the Tan-awan coastline of the Oslob district by fishermen who hand feed them small shrimp, drawing divers and snorkelers to see the highly sought-after animals, known as gentle giants of the sea. But the practice has sparked fierce debate on the internet and among biologists, who decry it as unnatural. Picture taken March 1, 2013.

Mourning

Faheema Titi, the sister of Palestinian Mahmoud Titi is covered with the blood of her dead brother after embracing him during his funeral at the Al-Fawwar refugee camp, near the West Bank town of Hebron, Wednesday, March 13, 2013. Israeli troops shot to death Mahmoud Titi on Tuesday after he and others hurled rocks and firebombs at them in the West Bank, the military said. The death was the latest in a new uptick in Palestinian casualties in the area, where protests in support of prisoners held in Israeli jails have led to violent clashes between the protesters and Israeli forces. The protests have largely subsided. (AP Photo/Bernat Armangue)
