How the world sees U.S. disaster in wake of Hurricane Sandy & how we see ourselves

The images from Hurricane Sandy have been frightening and moving as they flash across our screens. This week’s front pages have made those images stand still.

Pages appear courtesy of the Newseum, some have been cropped to remove ads.
