May 15, 2011. Rebels continued to make gains in their struggle to end Muammar Gaddafi’s 42-year rule, with fighting intensifying in the mountains of western Libya. Here, civilian volunteers in the rebel army work an obstacle course in Benghazi, the country’s second largest city and the rebels’ main stronghold.

This Week: Violence along Israel’s borders; Mississippi floods; Libyan rebels in training; IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Khan in court; Haitian President Michel Martelly’s inauguration; an Israeli illusionist stands tall; “Spiderman” climbs Turkey’s tallest building; a Chinese bride’s wedding day suicide jump thwarted; and a citizen journalist captures a photo of space shuttle Endeavor as it lifts off for the last time.
