Mar. 19, 2014. Supporters of Afghan presidential candidate Ashraf Ghani jump to cross a ditch as they leave a gathering in the outskirts of Kunduz province, north of Kabul. Afghanistan's April 5 election is the third presidential poll since the fall of the Taliban, with 11 candidates contesting the polls.

From the ongoing search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 to the succession of Crimea to Russia, to the celebration of colors for Holi in India and twin polar bear cubs in Germany, TIME presents the best pictures of the week.
