Photos of the week - Times of Malta

23-29 April 2015

From the funeral of 24 migrants drowned in the Mediterranean's worst maritime disaster since WWII, to the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC Gallipoli landings, Times of Malta presents a selection of its photographers' choice of their best photos over the past days.

 

Armed Forces of Malta soldiers carry coffins with the bodies of migrants to an inter-faith burial service as mourning migrants arrive at Mater Dei Hospital in Tal-Qroqq on April 23. European Union leaders who decided last year to halt the rescue of migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean reversed their decision at a summit hastily convened after nearly 2,000 people died at sea. Public outrage over the deaths peaked this week after up to 900 migrants died when their boat sank on its way to Europe from Libya.

A military veteran takes a picture before a service to mark the 100th anniversary of ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) landings at Galllipoli, at the Pieta Military Cemetery in Pieta on April 25. The Gallipoli campaign has resonated through generations, which have mourned the thousands of soldiers from the ANZAC cut down by machinegun and artillery fire as they struggled ashore on a narrow beach. The fighting would eventually claim more than 130,000 lives, 87,000 of them on the side of the Ottoman Turks, who were allied with imperial Germany in World War One.
