Africa's week in pictures: 26 July - 1 August 2019

A selection of photos from across Africa and Africans elsewhere this week: At an entrepreneurs’ forum in Nigeria on Thursday, a photographer captures this shot of a participant’s Africa-shaped tattoo. A woman walks past this mural in Johannesburg’s fashionable Maboneng neighbourhood on Tuesday. A young Kenyan makes her voice heard alongside dozens of other protesters calling for urgent investment into nationwide cancer care on Thursday in Nairobi. Among the acts at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe are five Kenyan acrobats known as The Black Blues Brothers. They’re pictured here in the Scottish capital on Sunday. Belgian-Congolese rapper Damso talks to the crowd at Switzerland’s Paleo Festival on Friday. The next day, an Angolan woman competes in the mixed 4x100m Freestyle heats at the World Swimming Championships in South Korea. Volunteers and state officials in Ethiopia planted millions of trees on Monday. The government says it set a new record by planting more than 350 million trees in a single day… Critics say the government is using the tree-planting drive to distract the public from its struggles to resolve ethnic conflicts that have forced some 2.5 million people from their homes. Lemurs, which are native to Madagacar, are endangered with only 1,000 left in the wild. This month-old cub pictured in France on Thursday is one of the many lemurs living in zoos worldwide. And on Thursday at Birqash Camel Market near Cairo, a seller poses with one of the hundreds of camels for sale. Pictures from Reuters, EPA, Getty Images, PA and AFP
