May 20, 2014. A riot policeman uses a baton to hit a rioting University of Nairobi student in Kenya's capital Nairobi. Public university students started their protests against the planned hiking of fees and lowering of maximum loan awarded to students by the Higher Education Loans Board, with police engaging the students in running battles at the main campus, local media reported.

From the public opening of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum to unprecedented flooding in Bosnia and Serbia, from student protests in Kenya and a traveling panda, TIME presents the best photos of the week.
