September 27, 2010. An engineer begins the process of conducting a block-by-block inspection of the exterior of the Washington Monument while suspended by ropes, Washington, DC. The National Park Service has closed the landmark in the nation's capital indefinitely due to damage caused by a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in August.

From an inspection of the Washington Monument and a former Afghan president’s funeral to a building collapse in New Delhi and continued fighting in Libya, TIME’s photo department presents the best images of the week.
