Tragedy struck Saturday when 10 people were killed in a racially motivated mass shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo.

The suspect — an 18-year-old White man — shot 13 people. Eleven were Black.

Saturday’s massacre is the latest high-profile shooting in which authorities have said the suspect was motivated by hate, including attacks at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas; the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh; Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston and the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

“We are broken, possibly irreversibly,” Phylicia Dove, a resident in the community told CNN. “Will we ever be the same? No. Will we rebuild? Yes. Because we don’t have a choice. Black people in America have never had a choice.”

Here are some of the stories that made headlines over the past week, as well as some photos that caught our eye.

Israeli police confront mourners in Jerusalem on Friday, May 13, as they carry the casket of veteran Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, who was shot dead two days earlier while reporting on a military raid in the West Bank city of Jenin. Mourners carrying Abu Akleh’s coffin out of a hospital were met with violence from Israeli police who compelled them to transport the body by car. Israeli police in a statement said that “hundreds of rioters began to disrupt public order, even before the funeral began,” as they worked to secure the procession.
