CaptionGraphic shows a selection of key events that took place during 2013. Events and people in the public eye included sarin gas attacks in Syria's ongoing civil war and the devastating Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the Nairobi mall assault and factory disaster in Bangladesh. Hassan Rouhani was elected as President in Iran, and Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela, while Pope Francis became the first pontiff from South America. President Morsi of Egypt was ousted by the military and the world lost a great leader with the death of Nelson Mandela. Iran agreed to limit its nuclear programme, China sent its first spacecraft to the moon, and a meteor exploded over Siberia. Paralympian Oscar Pistorius faced a murder charge, whistleblower Edward Snowden went on the run, the Netherlands gained a new king, Willem-Alexander, and Prince George, future British monarch, was born. Andy Murray won Wimbledon and the America's Cup saw one of sport's greatest ever comebacks.
