2) A Syrian girl receives treatment as victims of reported airstrikes are brought to a make-shift hospital in the rebel-held enclave of eastern Ghouta on March 7. The Syrian government, determined to wrest the eastern Ghouta suburbs from the control of rebels after seven years of war, has resorted to extreme levels of shelling and bombardment to clear the way for its troops to advance on the ground. Hundreds have been killed in the past two weeks. Photo: Amer Almohibany / AFP – Getty Images

3) State senators acknowledge the cheers of teachers and school personnel after the passage of a bill to increase pay of state employees by 5 percent at the capitol in Charleston, West Virginia, on March 6. The lawmakers unanimously approved the pay raises for teachers and troopers, after the governor reached a deal to end a teacher walkout that shuttered the state’s schools for nine days.

4) An officer with the U.S. Navy greets Vo Nhat Truyen, 30, during a visit on March 7 to a Danang shelter for people suffering from the effects of Agent Orange, a chemical used by the U.S. military during the Vietnam War to destroy foliage. The USS Carl Vinson arrived in Vietnam on Monday in the first visit of a U.S. aircraft carrier since the war ended in 1975.  Of the 4.8 million people who were exposed to Agent Orange, some three million are still suffering from its effects, including children born with severe disabilities or other health issues years after their parents were exposed, according to the Hanoi-based Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange.

6) Pedestrians walk through a snowstorm in New York on March 7.
