World Press Photos

The Telegraph has posted a slide show of the winners of the World Press Photo of the Year 2012 contest (CLICK). As you might expect from last year's news, there are some grim photos. An anguished funeral of two young children in Gaza City, taken by Paul Hansen of Sweden, was the overall winner. Another grim photo features Syrian "freedom" fighters in Aleppo torturing a suspect. That one looks a bit staged to me. This photo of the Pacu Jawi bull race in Batu Sangkar, West Sumatra (2012) by Chen Wei Seng of Malaysia won the Sports Action Single category. What a shot!
