April 20, 2011. Chris Hondros photographed a rebel fighter braving a burning stairwell in pursuit of government troops while ensconced in a building on Tripoli Street in Misratah, Libya, on April 20. Later that day, Hondros and photographer Tim Hetherington were killed covering the battle between the rebels and Gaddafi loyalists.

This week: An image from photographer Chris Hondros’ final assignment, taken on the day he was killed in Libya; wild fires in Mexico; the Gulf of Mexico, one year after the BP oil spill; Holy Week celebrations; and a cherry blossom tree blooming amid the devastation left by Japan’s tsunami.
