Mourners light candles to mark the death of former Czech President Vaclav Havel, gathering at a statue of Saint Wenceslaus in Prague. Havel — a playwright, essayist, and political dissident — led Czechoslovakia’s Velvet Revolution, which ended communist rule there in 1989. He was the Czech Republic’s first president. He died early on Sunday in his sleep at the age of 75. Photo by Sean Gallu/Getty Images.
