Friday’s Pictures in the News features a quizzical look from a youngster in St. Petersburg, Russia, as he encounters a  plasma globe,  fashion on display at London Fashion Week and the raw emotion from Srinagar, India, where people mourn the passing  of one of their own.

Stay tuned, because there’s more to come……….
