Our Pictures in the News feature is just that today – newsy. We begin in Srinagar, India, where demonstrators are defying a round-the-clock curfew. At least four people died in clashes with police as illustrated by grief-stricken women at a funeral for a Kashmiri youth killed in the conflict. From there we have a Canadian corporal walking through a field of marijuana plants during a patrol near the village of Salavat, Afghanistan. To lighten up the gallery, we end today’s feature with mimes performing at a prison the France and a good-natured group wave from altar boys in St. Peter Square at the Vatican.
