PHOTO GALLERY: A selection of pictures from the past week

A woman carries a decorated human skull after praying in the chapel of the General Cemetery during the annual "Natitas" festival in La Paz, Bolivia, Friday, Nov. 8, 2019. The "Natitas," which means "without a nose" in the indigenous Aymara language, are cared for and decorated by faithful who use them as amulets, believing they serve as protection. The tradition marks the end of the Catholic All Saints holiday, but is not recognized by the Catholic church.
