Thursday: The day in photos - Philippines

Filipino devotees of the Black Nazarene touch handkerchiefs to a replica of the statue outside Quiapo church in Manila. Filipinos are beginning preparations for the feast of the Black Nazarene on Friday. The Black Nazarene, believed to have miraculous healing powers, is a life-sized statue of Jesus Christ brought to the Philippines from Mexico by a priest in 1606.
