Police vehicles are seen behind a hijacked bus burning on Shankill Road in Belfast, Northern Ireland, April 7, 2021.

Hundreds of youths set a hijacked bus on fire and attacked police with stones in scenes reviving memories of decades of sectarian and political strife that claimed some 3,600 lives prior to a 1998 peace deal.

A woman reacts as restaurant owners scuffle with police over COVID-19 restrictions on businesses in Rome, Italy April 6, 2021. The government has imposed repeated curbs over the past 14 months to try to contain COVID-19, which has killed more than 111,000 people in Italy, the second worst tally in Europe after Britain. Last week the cabinet ruled that bars and restaurants could only offer a takeaway service in April, angering many businesses who had hoped to reopen fully as the vaccination campaign picks up speed and case numbers hold relatively steady.

A police officer gestures to keep distance during a "kill the bill" protest in London, Britain, April 3, 2021. Thousands of demonstrators joined rallies across Britain against a proposed law that would give police extra powers to curb protests, with some scuffles breaking out in London.

Psychiatrist Flavio Falcone talks to homeless people in an area known as "cracolandia," or crackland, an area of about eight blocks in the historic center of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Costumed as a jester with a bright red nose, his patients know him as The Clown, not as a doctor. "This character represents the exposure of mistakes, of the fragility of what exists in the shadow; the exposure of failures," he said. "What makes you laugh is the clown that trips, not the clown who walks straight. The people who are on the street are really the failures of capitalist society." Picture taken February 9, 2021.
