Crowds turn out for Nipsey

Mourners hold their fists in the air outside Nipsey Hussle's Marathon clothing store in Los Angeles on April 11, 2019.

After a three-hour memorial ceremony at Staples Center, Hussle's casket engaged in a 25-mile procession through the streets of Los Angeles. Crowds tried to get the best glimpses they could of the hearse, while some chanted "Nipsy! Nipsy!"

The procession took a lengthy pause outside The Marathon clothing store, where he was shot and fatally wounded March 31.

Notre Dame burns

Notre Dame's steeple collapses as the cathedral is engulfed in flames in Paris on April 15.

The cathedral spire was destroyed and its roof gutted but the bell towers were still standing and many valuable art works were saved after more than 400 firemen worked to contain the blaze, finally quelling it 14 hours after it began.

Report released

Photojournalists photograph four pages of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller on the witness table in the House Intelligence Committee hearing room on Capitol Hill on April 18.

Mueller's lengthy report made public Thursday reviewed President Donald Trump's attempts to muddy the investigation, including efforts to tamper with witnesses, but decided not to charge him with obstruction in part because there was no underlying crime and many of the attempts were carried out in plain view.
