Sea of umbrellas

Anti-government protesters are seen through the remains of posters clinging to glass in Hong Kong on Oct. 1.

The umbrella, used by protesters to shield themselves from pepper spray, first became a symbol of the pro-democracy demonstrations during the "Umbrella Movement" in 2014 that failed to wrest concessions from Beijing.

Battling with the media

President Donald Trump snaps at Reuters White House reporter Jeff Mason during a news conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto at the White House on Oct. 2.

Trump sidestepped Mason's questions about what he wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy “to do with regard to Joe and Hunter Biden,” and, growing agitated, slammed the Bidens as “stone cold crooked,” before angrily insisting Mason submit a question to the Finnish president.

“Ask this gentleman a question,” Trump said. “Don’t be rude.”

Trump then cut the press conference short, preventing the Finnish president from taking another question from one of his country's reporters, as is customary.

Migrant camp clashes

A man carries a boy during clashes with police outside the Moria refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos, on Sept. 29.

Greece aims to deport 10,000 migrants by the end of next year, the government said on Monday, following a deadly fire and clashes at its biggest migrant camp which is massively overcrowded.

A woman was killed on Sunday in a blaze which broke out in the Moria camp. The fire, the cause of which remains unknown, quickly escalated into clashes between asylum-seekers and police. More than a dozen people were hurt.
