May 26, 2012. The body of a woman lies on the ground near Ali Bin Al Hussein mosque, in Houla, Syria. A Syrian artillery barrage killed more than 90 people in the worst violence since the start of a U.N. peace plan to staunch the bloodshed in the area.

From Memorial Day observances in the U.S. and an exchange of bodies in the West Bank to the massacre in Syria and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in England, TIME’s photo department presents the best images of the week.
