Top 10 News Photos of the Week: Sept 28 - Oct 2

1. Hurricane Joaquin — In this handout from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Hurricane Joaquin is seen churning in the Atlantic on Thursday, when it pummeled the Bahamas. Although the storm was upgraded to a category four hurricane, its exact track has yet to be determined. Many meteorologists have predicted it will swerve out to sea and spare the Northeast.

2. Umpqua Community College shooting — A young woman reacts Thursday during a vigil in Roseburg, Oregon, where 10 people were killed and seven others wounded in a shooting at a Umpqua Community College earlier in the day. The shooter — identified by the media as 26-year-old Chris Harper Mercer — reportedly opened fire in a classroom, and then moved to other rooms while methodically gunning down his victims, witnesses said.

3. Water on Mars — In this handout provided by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, dark, narrow streaks on the slopes of Hale Crater are inferred to be formed by seasonal flow of water on surface of present-day Mars. These dark features on the slopes are called "recurring slope lineae" or RSL. Using observations with the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer on the same orbiter, scientists reported on Monday that they had detected hydrated salts on these slopes at Hale Crater, corroborating the hypothesis that the streaks are formed by briny liquid water.

6. Russia launches Syria strike — This image taken Wednesday and posted on the Twitter account of Syria Civil Defence — also known as the White Helmets, a volunteer search and rescue group — shows the aftermath of an airstrike in Talbiseh, Syria. Russia on Wednesday carried out its first airstrikes in Syria in what President Vladimir Putin called a pre-emptive strike against the militants. Khaled Khoja, head of the Syrian National Council opposition group, said at the U.N. that Russian airstrikes in four areas, including Talbiseh, killed dozens of civilians, with children among the dead.

7. Kim Davis meets the Pope — The Kentucky clerk jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses said early this week that she met with Pope Francis briefly during his visit to the United States last week. Davis said the pontiff encouraged her to "stay strong." After some confusion over whether the two actually ever met, the Vatican confirmed it but clarified on Friday that the meeting "should not be considered a form of support of her position," and emphasized that the pope met with dozens of people during his visit. Lawyers for Kim Davis and her husband Joe provided this photo and said the pope gave them these rosaries during the private meeting. (Liberty Counsel)

8. Supermoon — The so-called supermoon passes behind the peak of the Washington Monument during a lunar eclipse on Sunday. The supermoon, or perigee moon, occurs when the full or new moon comes closest to the Earth making it appear bigger. It's the first time the events have made a twin appearance since 1982, and they won't again until 2033. (AP Photo/J. David Ake)

9. Volkswagen recall — A measuring hose for emissions inspections in diesel engines sticks in the exhaust tube of a Volkswagen (VW) Golf 2,0 TDI diesel car at a garage in Frankfurt an der Oder, eastern Germany, on Thursday. Volkswagen has admitted that up to 11 million diesel cars worldwide are fitted with devices that can switch on pollution controls when they detect the car is undergoing testing.
