Bangladeshi garment workers shout slogans and block a road during a protest against the collapse of an eight-storey building in Dhaka that housed several garment factories, killing more than 300 people. The owner of the building, who ignored inspectors who advised to close the structure when cracks appeared in the building a day before the collapse, sits at the nexus of party politics and the country's powerful $20bn billion garment industry.

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, a member of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot, reads papers at a district court in Russia's province of Mordovia. A Russian court is to consider whether one of the jailed Pussy Riot members is eligible for early release. Tolokonnikova, in custody since her arrest in March 2012, is serving a two-year sentence for the band's irreverent protest against President Vladimir Putin in Moscow's main cathedral.

Iraqi anti-government gunmen from Sunni tribes in western Anbar province march during a protest in Ramadi, west of Baghdad, on April 26. The United Nations warned that Iraq is at a "crossroads" and appealed for restraint, as a bloody four-day wave of violence killed 195 people. The violence is the deadliest so far linked to demonstrations that broke out in Sunni areas of the Shiite-majority country more than four months ago.
