Photo of the Day

FILE - In this February 1946 file photo, Associated Press correspondent George E. Bria works by candlelight in the AP Rome bureau during a power failure. Nine months earlier, Italy on Saturday, April 25, 2015,  celebrated the 70th anniversary of a partisan uprising against the Nazis and their Fascist allies at the end of World War II. The anniversary marks the day in 1945 when the Italian resistance movement proclaimed an insurgency as the Allies were pushing German forces out of the peninsula. Within days, Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, who headed a Nazi puppet state in northern Italy, was captured, shot and hung by his feet in a Milan square, along with his mistress. "He was on a train going to Switzerland disguised as a German," recalled George Bria, an Associated Press correspondent who covered the Allied push into Italy. "Plain, ordinary German soldier, with his mistress and some other fascist officials, also disguised. Well, the partisans got wind of this and they captured them." (AP Photo, File)
