Pictures of the week

A cyclist was killed and 10 others were injured when a car ploughed into a bike race in Mexico.

A 78-year-old man is tossed like a rag doll by a hit-and-run driver, and cars zoom by as he lies motionless on the busy city street. Pedestrians gawk, but do nothing after the accident in the U.S. One driver stops briefly, but then pulls back into traffic. A man on a scooter slowly circles the victim before zipping away. The chilling video has outraged Hartford's police chief and has sparked some to question the humanity of Connecticut's capital city.
