UN chief Ban Ki-moon called for greater global efforts to tackle the Syrian refugee crisis, as he opened a conference on securing resettlement places for nearly half a million of those displaced by the five-year conflict. More than one million migrants -- about half of them Syrians -- reached Europe via the Mediterranean last year, a rate of arrivals that has continued through the first three months of 2016. Pic/AFP

    Supporters of Brazil's Workers' Party (PT) demonstrate in a red smoke party's color in support of President Dilma Rousseff and former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Brazil's Supreme Court on Thursday removed a politically explosive case against former president Luiz Lula Inacio da Silva from a crusading corruption judge. Judges voted to put Lula's case under the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court and not federal Judge Sergio Moro. Lula is accused of money laundering and concealing property in connection with a huge probe led by Moro into state oil company Petrobras. Pic/AFP
