February 21, 2012. An anti-government protestor carries another injured protestor during clashes with police in Senegal's capital Dakar. Hundreds of opposition supporters clashed with Senegalese security forces in the capital on Tuesday as European Union observers criticised a ban on protests and an African envoy jetted in to try and stem rising violence.

From protests in Afghanistan and India’s Mahashivratri festival to Olympic test events in London and Whitney Houston’s funeral in New Jersey, TIME’s photo department presents the best images of the week.
