time This week, Vietnam commemorates the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, which led to the unification of the country. But the war that killed more than three million people has now become a distant past for a new generation of Vietnamese, including photographer Maika Elan (@maikaelan), whose personal photographs reveal a unique look at life inside contemporary Vietnam. “Americans and Vietnamese still have different perceptions of the war,” Elan tells TIME. “While America [is] still busy with so many other wars, Vietnam is no longer a battlefield. It’s a really peaceful country now.” Photograph by Maika Elan. See more on lightbox.time.com 2d

After securing a seat on one of the first flights to Kathmandu, Ferguson began photographing the aftermath for TIME. “An extraordinary number of buildings that haven’t fallen over have suffered constructional damage," he says, "so a huge amount of people won’t be able to move back in for weeks.” Photograph by Adam Ferguson for TIME.

time It has been 40 years since the spring day when the last U.S. helicopters lifted up and, shortly after, the North Vietnamese army entered Saigon, deciding a conflict that had raged for years. News photographs from the time showed the world what was going on, from a country full of death in all its gruesome forms to peaceful protests across the ocean. Despite their age, those images have not lost their impact. And that's the case for this photograph, shot by Henri Huet of Associated Press, showing the body of an American paratrooper killed in action in the jungle near the Cambodian border raised up to an evacuation helicopter in War Zone C in Vietnam on May 14, 1966.

time In the wake of protests in the city, the Baltimore Orioles decided to keep fans out of Camden Yards, as a safety precaution, during their MLB game against the White Sox on Wednesday. TIME's Sean Gregory was among a handful of people who witnessed the surreal game from inside the stadium. He spoke with one fan, Brendan Hurson, who was demonstrating outside the stadium and believed the Oriole's closed game symbolized the current state of Baltimore. "So many young people are locked out of the life they want to lead," he said. "This is such a stark reminder." Photograph by Patrick Semansky—AP. See more on time.com 4d

time Barely 24 hours after the city she leads was engulfed in a spasm of violent riots, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake defended her handling of the crisis in an interview with TIME. “I’m not green to these types of issues. I’ve been mayor for five years. I’ve led a city. And directed a police department. I know how to use resources. We’ve done it and we responded to protests,” she said Tuesday evening, hours before police began enforcing the first night of a week-long 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew. “I’m comfortable with how we’ve responded in very, very challenging times.” Days of peaceful protests after the death of Freddie Gray, who died after sustaining a severe spinal injury while in police custody, turned violent on Monday, forcing Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to mobilize 2,000 National Guard troops. Earlier today, Baltimore streets were quiet.

time Days of angry, but mostly peaceful, protests in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray spiraled after his funeral Monday into scenes of rioting, arson and looting that carried into Tuesday, prompting a declaration of a state of emergency as reinforcements arrived to restore order. Gray’s death on April 19, following a fatal injury sustained in police custody during his arrest one week earlier, has become the latest to ignite the national debate on race and police brutality. Baltimore police denied using force against the 25-year-old; one of the family’s attorneys said Gray’s spine was 80% “severed at the neck.” In this photograph, shot by @gettyimages photographer Andrew Burton (@andrewburton11), two cars burn in the middle of an intersection at New Shiloh Baptist Church on April 27, 2015 in Baltimore.

time In remote mountain villages near the epicenter of Saturday’s massive earthquake in Nepal, receiving outside help has become a matter of life or death. The Himalayan nation is reeling from the magnitude 7.8 earthquake that struck 50 miles outside the capital, Kathmandu, and as of Monday afternoon had left at least 4,000 people dead. The country’s worst quake in 81 years has severely damaged Nepal’s already fragile infrastructure and aftershocks sent thousands into the streets. Countries around the world have pledged millions in assistance and some are already on the ground helping with rescue efforts and dispersal of aid. Altaf Qadri (@altafqadri), an Associated Press photographer, is shadowing India’s Air Force as it brings relief to survivors. In this photograph, a man sits with a child on his lap as victims of the earthquake wait for ambulances after being evacuated to the airport in Kathmandu, Nepal, on April 27, 2015.

time A week after Freddie Gray died of serious spinal injuries while in police custody, mourners gathered in large numbers at his funeral at New Shiloh Baptist Church in Baltimore on April 27, 2015. In this photograph, Gloria Darden, Gray’s mother, is embraced during the service. “This is our moment to get at the truth,” said Bill Murphy, the family’s attorney, according to an Associated Press report. “This is our moment to get it right.” Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner, who died in New York police custody, also attended Gray’s funeral. “It’s like there is no accountability, no justice,” she said. “It’s like we’re back in the ’50s, back in the Martin Luther King days. When is our day to be free going to come?” While the funeral was underway, police said in a news release that the department had received a “credible threat” that three notoriously violent gangs are now working together to “take out” law enforcement officers, according to the Associated Press. Gray’s death has heightened tensions between residents and the police, with weekend protests at times turning violent. Photograph by Brendan Smialowski (@bsmialowski)—@afpphoto/@gettyimages.

I may have a better understanding than some when it comes to racism. Yet I'm still looked upon as a white male/ Caucasian. These days if its not your color it's your class. That's why I said ignorance is the enemy. Although I may be an exception I still fall into someone's miss understood label or category. That's why as you level up your own awareness you do so for the world as a whole. Now just think about that. 4d

time Flowers are left by survivors on top of debris from a collapsed building at Basantapur Durbar Square, in Kathmandu, Nepal, after an earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Ritcher scale hit the region on April 25, 2015. With a dead toll rising by the hour—this earthquake is Nepal’s worst in 81 years—Getty Images photographer Omar Havana (@omarhavana) who shot this image, witnessed scenes of panic as people looked for safety in open spaces. “There were more replicas, which scared everyone even more,” he said. “It has been one of the worst scenes I’ve witnessed in my life.” The Spanish photographer, who moved to Kathmandu seven months ago and is represented by Getty Images (@gettyimages), also saw acts of humanity. “People are doing amazing work,” he said. “They’re doing everything they [can] to help each other.” Photo by Omar Havana—Getty Images.
