The killing fields of 2011 in Photographs

I wonder why the world is becoming more violent and deadly with the passage of each day of our lives. I wanted to find a collection of the Best Photos of 2011 - but was appalled to find blood stained and soaked photographs everywhere. It looks as if the world has become a killing field rather than a planet of hope and peace.

WARNING: SOME IMAGES CONTAIN GRAPHIC CONTENT OR NUDITY From the uprisings across the Arab world to the devastating earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan, there was no lack of news in 2011. Reuters photographers covered the breaking news events as well as captured more intimate, personal stories. In this showcase, the photographers offer a behind the scenes account of the images that helped define the year.

I am sharing just a few less graphic photos of 2011 - which by the science and art of photography can be rated as the best. But if we view these as human beings, these leave us much to ponder.

For rest of the many more photos, see the slide show at: Reuters.
