Photography: The week in pictures (October 9-16)

In Bangladesh, after numerous protests calling for justice for victims of sexual violence, the government decided to make rape a capital offense.

In Kenya, the government has just announced the gradual reopening of schools. In Europe, the new outbreak of Covid-19 cases has, on the contrary, prompted several countries to take new restrictive health measures: Northern Ireland has just decided to bring forward and extend the All Saints holiday.
