Top 111 News Pictures Of 2011

You’ve had the Best Sports Pictures Of 2011 and these are our top 111 news pictures of 2011. 2011 Saw civil uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain and Syria. We were also witness to conflict and hunger in Africa, Occupy Movements across the world, the 10th anniversary of 9/11, some great sporting events, the director of the IMF being charged with suspected rape, a crazy guy in Norway killing innocent people and nature showing us she’s still the boss of us. Nature gave us tornados, floods, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and who can forget the tsunami which hit Japan in March.
Let’s hope 2012 brings a little less violence, death and destruction.
