International POW 13 – 20 May 2013

This week of POW has been pretty interesting with all sort of occasions, events, accidents happening around the world.

just to describe the following photos by giving you a glimpse, there is of course a photo from Syria’s ongoing battle, the Pakistanian elections, some beautiful green-yellow fields, but an interesting thing flashed in my mind is that in Portugal Fatima is a name related to Christianity more than islam.

Yalla scroll down and watch the photos, don’t forget to share or like, or even as me any question about this post 🙂
