Image of Asia: Respect for fallen soldiers on Anzac Day

In this photo by Wong Maye-E, a catafalque guard rests with his weapon reversed as a form of respect at a dawn commemoration of Anzac Day for Australians and New Zealanders in Singapore. The day marks the 101st anniversary of New Zealand and Australia's first military action in World War I, the attempt to capture Gallipoli. In Australia, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull expressed solidarity with Turkey after recent terror attacks there, as part of his official address at the national Anzac Day ceremony in the capital, Canberra.
