Firstpost brings for its readers the slideshow of the day with key images from around the world. Who says text is essential in the era of the digital camera for when you’ve got amazing pictures, you can say more than a thousand words.
A pirate at Cannes with a deadly beauty in tow, the IMF director facing rape charges, the end of America’s space era, and Libya’s ongoing struggle for freedom; these are our picks of the day, and we’ve chosen them because these images represent perfection in our eyes.

Whether the manner in which these images have been framed or the technique used by the photographers to capture, what can only be described as important historical moments of our time, we believe that each of these chosen images is telling the story in a way that text never can. This is our attempt at highlighting key images of the day.
