The Day in Photos – April 18, 2019

A Catholic faithful fancy dressed as a “talciguin” -character of the local folklore- takes part in the celebration of an ancient local tradition that marks the start of Holy Week, in Texistepeque, some 80 km west of San Salvador, on April 15, 2019. Talciguines are devils who “lash” Catholic faithfuls to cleanse their sins. (Photo by Marvin Recinos/AFP Photo)
