Students run away from stun grenades and tear gas during a protest against hikes to university fees, outside the government headquarters in Pretoria, South Africa, on October 23, 2015.

Kim Woo-jong, 87, who has been selected as one of 90 participants of reunion, smiles as he poses for photographs during an interview with Reuters in Seoul, South Korea, on October 14, 2015. The two Koreas, bitter rivals that remain in a technical state of war, agreed to hold family reunions for the first time since February 2014 after negotiating the end of a standoff at their heavily militarized border. The reunion of 90 South Koreans and 96 North Koreans, the 20th of its kind, will be held at a resort in the North, mostly in a large ballroom under the watchful eye of officials.

Young artists in Ghana's capital have evolved a new style that is turning heads and challenging accepted notions of African fashion.

"I like the fact that it is creating drama in the minds of the people," Kissi said. The group publishes selfies on social media, projecting their style to an audience far beyond Accra.
