Top 5: Photo galleries
Each day, we bring you a list of Top 5 stories. Sometimes they're the most read stories of the day, other times we focus on a specific region or category.
Today we're thinking visually with some of the most recent photo galleries our Multimedia Team have cultivated over the past week. Some stories, such as the floods that scrambled landscapes in Philippines, to the late Vaclav Havel's decades-long career as a politician and hero of the Cold War.
