October 18, 2011. In the company of members of his family, Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit is guided from an army helicopter. After being captured by Hamas militants in 2006 and spending five years in captivity in Gaza, Shalit was freed in exchange for the release of more than 1,000 Palestinians from Israeli jails.

From the death of Muammar Gaddafi and the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, to the global spread of the Occupy Wall Street protests and the horrific crash that killed Dan Wheldon, TIME’s photo department presents the best images of the week.
