The best pictures of the year (as long as nothing happens in December)

From Mo's magic Olympic moment to Obama's White House win: Here are the best pictures of the year (let's just hope nothing happens in December!) | UPDATED: 11:35 GMT, 28 November 2012 Global press agency AFP have already released their selection of 2012's best pictures — even though there is still a full month to go. The incredible images capture every major news story of the year so far, from triumph at the Olympics to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in the US and ongoing violence in Syria. The list has been released surprisingly early this year — usually, it doesn't arrive until December.
