Sderot was hit by one of the 60 rockets fired on Wednesday by the Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip and Israel carried out 29 air strikes and its tanks shelled militant targets in Gaza. There were no casualties in Wednesday's exchange. Purim is a celebration of the Jews' salvation from genocide in ancient Persia, as recounted in the Book of Esther.

Indian Hindu widows play with colored water for the first time as a part of Holi celebrations organized by the NGO Sulabh at the Meera Sahbhagini Ashram in Vrindavan, India, Friday, March 14, 2014. The widows, many of whom at times have lived desperate lives in the streets of the temple town, celebrated the festival at the century old ashram. After their husband's deaths the women have been banished by their families to the town where devotees believe Lord Krishna was born, for supposedly bringing bad luck.

Men walk in the old town of Simferopol near the Kebir-Dzhami mosque March 14, 2014. Earlier this month, Tatars of Ukraine's Crimea came out in their thousands, chanting Allahu Akbar in a show of loyalty to the new authorities in Kiev and opposition to separatist demands by the region's Russian ethnic majority. But now, with Moscow's military forces having unexpectedly seized control, the indigenous Muslim people of the isolated Black Sea peninsula have all but vanished from the public square, keeping their heads down to avoid being sucked into war.
