    On her daily walks from home to her job at a primary school in the city of Port Sudan, Khalda Saber would urge people to join the protests against the three-decade rule of Sudan’s autocratic President Omar al-Bashir.⁠
⁠
At school, she rallied fellow teachers to join the pro-democracy uprising.⁠
⁠
“I was telling them that there is nothing to lose, compared with what we have already lost. I was telling them that we have to take to the streets, demonstrate and express our rejection to what’s happening,” she said.⁠
⁠
One January morning, two months after the protests erupted, plainclothes security forces snatched Saber off a bus and took her to the feared security and intelligence agency’s local office.⁠
⁠
Saber spent 40 days in detention. She was among many thousands of Sudanese women who risked their lives leading protests that eventually pushed the military to overthrow al-Bashir in April.⁠

    Nicholas Bingham enters the water to go night spearfishing, which is banned in Stewart Town, Jamaica.⁠
⁠
Fishing at night anywhere in #Jamaica is illegal. But for some, the fish sanctuary’s restrictions have taken a toll on their livelihood in a place where job opportunities can be scarce.⁠
⁠
Bingham says he has to resort to illegal night spearfishing to make up for lost wages from the sanctuary’s restrictions. Fish sleep in the coral reef at night, making them easier to catch than during the day.⁠
⁠
“From the time I was born fishing is all I do. It’s my bread and butter,” says Bingham. “There’s not many other jobs to do.” ⁠

    The Associated Press visited several fish sanctuaries in Jamaica where coral reefs battered by natural and man-made disasters are rebounding. The corals and tropical fish are slowly reappearing thanks to some careful interventions. A key effort involves tending to underwater coral nurseries to jumpstart the natural growth of a reef.

    On the ocean floor, small coral fragments dangle from suspended ropes, like socks hung on a laundry line. Divers tend to this underwater nursery as gardeners mind a flower bed, slowly and painstakingly plucking off snails and fireworms that feast on immature coral.⁠

    As former army chief of staff Benny Gantz campaigns to be Israel’s next leader, he is relying less on policy specifics than on the archetypal image of a military man who can rise above the political fray and defend a country that feels perpetually under siege.⁠
⁠
With piercing blue eyes and the reserved manner of a lifelong soldier, Gantz has vowed to unify the country and restore national institutions after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decade-long rule, which has deepened Israel’s religious and political divides and been roiled by corruption allegations.⁠
⁠
Gantz failed to unseat Netanyahu in April’s elections, but will have another shot in Tuesday’s unprecedented do-over, which was prompted by Netanyahu’s inability to form a government.⁠

    Women thrumming drums, children devouring rich pastries, red flares lighting up the sky — these are telltale signs that Moroccans are marking Ashoura.⁠
Families gather at home to eat a variety of sweets, dried fruits, and pastries that are served up throughout the Ashoura week. Traditional couscous meals with meat and vegetables are cooked, as women sing songs that are chanted to the beat of newly-bought Taarejs, colorful drums which are given as gifts to children. Girls get traditional henna tattoos for the occasion.⁠
⁠
⁠
As night falls, people spill out onto the streets. Children light sparklers and ask for treats, in an atmosphere reminiscent of Halloween.⁠
