A university student wore a pair of rain boots with her traditional Korean dress as she waited in the rain for the start of a mass dance in Pyongyang, North Korea, as part of celebrations for the 64th anniversary of the armistice that ended the Korean War.

In other images from the Asia-Pacific region last week, floodwaters from tropical storm Nesat inundated neighborhoods and closed schools in Manila, and monsoon rains killed dozens in the Indian state of Gujarat, leaving scenes of mourning by displaced residents.

Amazon opened its "Prime Now" shipping facility in Singapore, introducing express delivery in the city-state in an effort to win over digital natives and new internet users.
