Photos Of The Week 7-11 November: Collapsing Houses, Powerboats And A Big Apple Marathon

An amazing aerial view of powerboats in Florida creates a stunning display during the three-day Key West World Championship race and a sombre moment of remembrance brings the people in streets and buildings to a halt as a minute's silence is observed throughout the UK on Armistice Day.

In other regions the royals got a taste of South African culture during their four-day tour to highlight environmental and social issues, whilst the people of the Big Apple sweated it out at the New York City Marathon.
