Nov. 12, 2013. Iranian Muslim Shiite boys impersonating the role of genies, the spiritual creatures mentioned in the Koran, take part in the annual religious performance of “Taazieh” in the Iranian town of Noosh Abad near the central city of Kashan marking the mourning period of Ashura which commemorates the killing of Prophet Mohammed’s grandson Imam Hussein.

From the devastating aftermath of the typhoon in the Philippines and Armistice Day across the world to Sachin Tendulkar’s record-breaking final cricket test match in India and role playing genies in Iran, TIME presents the best pictures of the week.
