The best pictures of the week are chosen by YOU voting on our interactive slideshow.

The week started off with a controversial 'nazi' style football celebration, then Pope Francis broke protocol by stepping out of his 'pope mobile' to bless a disabled man in the crowd during mass and Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl shot in the head by the Taliban, attended her first day of school just weeks after being released from hospital.

And of course we have our overly cute animals, Kali the orphaned polar bear, adorable white tiger cubs and the unlikeliest of friends, Mango and Milkshake, a tiny kitten and a pitbull puppy.

Happy voting and we will announce the winner on Monday morning.

    The broad dust tail of Comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) has become a familiar sight for many northern hemisphere comet watchers, as the comet fades but rises higher above the western horizon after sunset. This view of the popular comet may seem a little fantastic, though. Sweeping away from the Sun and trailing behind the comet's orbit, the curving dust tail also seems to stream away from a shining mountaintop castle. Comet Castle might be an appropriate name in this scene, but its traditional name is Castle Hohenzollern. Taken on March 15 with an extreme telephoto lens, the Comet Castle image was captured in exceptionally clear skies about 80 kilometers away from Stuttgart, Germany.
