Reuters Pictures of the Year 2008

News agency Reuters has posted its Pictures of the Year 2008 gallery on its website, featuring 135 images from its photographers worldwide.

It offers the viewer a look back at the year’s most significant events, an instant replay of memorable images ranging from the floodwaters brought on by Hurricane Gustav in Louisiana to the election campaigns in the US, from Michael Phelps’ Olympic victory to NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s disgrace, from the bombardment of Gori, T’bilisi to the most recent terror attacks in Mumbai, India.

One image shows a woman weeping as she looks at covered bodies of civilians killed in Kiwanja, Democratic Republic of Congo, November 6, 2008.

Photo above shows a young man with an arrow in his head as he arrives at a hospital following ethnic clashes in the town of Nakuru in the Rift Valley area, Kenya, January 26, 2008.
