These two photos were part of the front page headlines today.  In discussing the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics, this photo from the Albertville Olympics in 1992 got the headline.  The article can be found in Le Monde.fr.  The second image comes from the Huffington post front page with a headline entitled, "People Power", linking viewers to an article about the protests in Kiev, Ukraine this week.
