What’s old is new in today’s Pictures in the News feature, where we bring you a photo of the removal of the old tree that Anne Frank could see from her hiding place during World War II and an image of the weathered hands of a 100-year-old flood victim in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. We see a child’s interaction with a bust of Mother Teresa in Ahmadabad, India; closing celebrations of the Youth Olympics in Singapore; dancers minding their beeswax in New York City; a music train in Berlin, and find ourselves flying in the simulated cockpit of a Boeing 787. Combine that with a penguin and a duck running afoul of one another in Germany; a new flamingo at the San Francisco zoo; workers protesting in Cape Town and moody scene-setters from the collapsed mine in Copiapo, Chile, and you have our report.
