Pictures in the News | Sept. 13, 2010

In today’s Pictures in the News, we bring you images of the opening of the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools complex in Los Angeles, Belarussian schoolchildren participating in the Young Pioneers anniversary in Minsk and a baby swimming contest in Beijing.

We stop for a little window shopping in Berlin, where passersby can see some of the 85,000 preserved animal specimens at the Museum of Natural History, and on to an animal rights protest in Munich with a serene image of an activist playing the role of a fish.

We have images of Kashmiri protesters taking to the streets with demonstrations fueled in part by a report of the Koran being desecrated in the United States, also to flooding in Mexico and a fatal plane crash in Venezuela.

We’re in London for a street performance by members of New York’s all-male ballet company, the Trocks, and at Sotheby’s in advance of the auction of rare prints later this week, including a Picasso that could fetch more than $1 million.

The precarious painting of the U.S. Capitol Dome in Washington for the first time in eight years and images from Bahrain, Guinea, Iran, Pakistan and Sweden are also all part of today’s report.
