This week in pictures: Trump’s impeachment, extreme weather in the Balkans, earthquake in Indonesia

This week the House of Representatives voted to impeach US president President Trump once again, as security was tightened in Washington DC after last week’s riots in the Capitol.

Extreme weather battered the Balkans with snow, floods and ice.

An earthquake struck Indonesia’s Sulawesi island, leaving buildings collapsed and rescue teams searching for survivors.

Here’s how these and other key stories from the week were captured by photographers around the world.
