The world's week in pictures

As violent protests over a US-made film rock the Muslim world, Salman Rushdie publishes his account Tuesday of the decade he spent in hiding while under a fatwa for his book "The Satanic Verses". With at least 19 people killed in a week of furious protests over the film, Rushdie's candid memoir of the years spent on the run after he too was accused of mocking Islam, entitled "Joseph Anton", has an added resonance.
