The month of March saw some momentous changes in the global order. Barack Obama became the first sitting US president in 88 years to visit Cuba, thus igniting hopes for relations normalising between the two once 'cold' nations. In strife torn Syria, coalition forces secured a major victory by driving out ISIS fighters from their stronghold at Palmyra, while in distant Brazil, a political upheaval steadily gathers force.

Here is a look at what happened around the world, through some fantastic images:
