Sometimes when looking on my screen monitor, all I see inside International news websites stories coming from Syria, especially in the last two weeks.
Before that, almost all the news were about Egypt and isolated president Mohamed Morsi.
I can’t hide that during these times, searching for a vast variety of images from around the world was a bit difficult while everyone is focusing on one or two parts of the world .
During the preparation of this week’s
International POW, I started looking up for new sources for images, and had several of messages back and forth with other websites to bring and share with you some of the best photos from the world, to bring it right in front of you in POW.
