Kanaz, 21, gets out of a car after a practical driving lesson in Kabul August 14, 2014. Kabul is one of the world's fastest growing cities and its streets are increasingly blocked by cars and buses. In the city's private driving schools, students pay a $60 fee for a 45-day course, which includes oral and practical driving tests at the country's Traffic Department. Some of the women who have signed up say learning to drive is a way to escape unwanted gazes and physical harassment on the cramped, crowded minibuses that are often the only method of urban public transport.

A manipulated photo of Chinese President Xi Jinping holding an umbrella, is left on a wall at the main "Occupy" protest site at Admiralty in Hong Kong December 16, 2014. Hong Kong police cleared most of the main protest site in December, marking an end to more than two months of street demonstrations in the Chinese-controlled city, but many chanted: "We will be back". Protest leaders have said they will consider other forms of civil disobedience, given Beijing's continued refusal to grant any concessions. Picture taken December 16.

Zaman editor-in-chief Ekrem Dumanli greets his supporters after being released by the court outside the Justice Palace in Istanbul December 19, 2014. A Turkish court kept a media executive and three other people in custody on Friday pending trial on accusations of belonging to a terrorist group, in a case which President Tayyip Erdogan has defended as a response to "dirty operations" by his enemies. Hidayet Karaca heads Samanyolu Television which is close to the president's ally-turned foe Fethullah Gulen, a U.S.-based Muslim cleric. Erdogan accuses Gulen of seeking to topple him through supporters in the judiciary and police. The European Union, which Turkey is seeking to join, has said last weekend's police raids to detain Karaca and other media workers was contrary to European values but Erdogan told the bloc to mind its own business. Dumanli, editor-in-chief of the Gulen-linked Zaman newspaper, was released but forbidden from travelling abroad before trial. Seven more people whom prosecutors sought remanded in custody in the case were also released pending trial. REUTERS/Murad Sezer (TURKEY - Tags: CRIME LAW POLITICS MEDIA TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)
