Giant Sinkhole in Mourning Mexico, Canada, Portugal Moves to UK Amber Travel List | In pictures

This week, indigenous groups in Canada are calling for a nationwide search for mass graves in residential schools after the discovery of the remains of 215 children in an old school last week shocked the country.

In Mexico, a giant sinkhole that grows tens of meters every day worries the inhabitants of a rural area in the central state of Puebla.

And Portugal has questioned the UK’s decision to add the country to its amber travel list, forcing visitors returning from the southern European nation to Britain to quarantine.

Here’s how photographers from around the world captured these and other stories of the week.
