Photos From Libya’s Devastating Floods (17 photos)

On Sunday, a Mediterranean storm brought record-setting rainfall to much of Libya, filling rivers, overwhelming dams, and sweeping away entire neighborhoods in several coastal towns. Local authorities said that more than 5,100 people have been killed by the powerful flooding. Derna was one of the worst-hit cities after two dams failed and torrents of water rushed through its streets, destroying dozens of buildings. Foreign rescue crews are still arriving, lending assistance to local teams who are working to find any survivors among the debris.

The winning entries in this year’s Bird Photographer of the Year competition were just announced, with Jack Zhi named as the overall winner for his image of a falcon defending its nest.

During the breeding season, a female peregrine falcon fiercely protects her young, attacking anything that comes near the nest. For four years, I attempted to capture these rare moments of her attacking large brown pelicans with incredible speed and agility.

Egypt’s New Capital-City Megaproject (23 photos)

First announced in 2015, Egypt’s new, as-yet-unnamed capital city has been under construction for years, at an estimated cost of more than $50 billion. Temporarily referred to as the New Administrative Capital, the massive development is just one of several megaprojects being built by the government of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. The new city, about 28 miles southeast of Cairo, is planned for more than six million residents, and is designed in part to relieve traffic and other stresses on the crumbling infrastructure in Cairo. The project, largely operated by Egypt’s Ministry of Defense, will consolidate and move government headquarters into a more controlled setting, monitored by more than 6,000 surveillance cameras. It is already home to the tallest building in Africa, a huge presidential palace, dozens of ministry buildings, schools, hospitals, mosques, and churches—with many more to come. Completion remains years away, and the Egyptian government has gone deeply into debt, but some people have begun moving in, even though many Cairo residents, according to Reuters, say they “cannot afford to live in the new city.”

Several tall buildings are seen under construction in a desert, including business towers and a mosque.

Brown Bears Fishing at Alaska’s Brooks Falls (17 photos)

In Alaska’s Katmai National Park and Preserve, the brown bears have returned to Brooks Falls, where they gorge themselves on salmon from July to September in preparation for the coming winter. The fishing bears have become famous, viewed by millions on live “bear cams,” and celebrated each September during Fat Bear Week with a tournament organized by the National Park Service. Recently, the Getty Images photographer John Moore paid a visit to Brooks Falls, catching images of some of the bears in action.
