Pictures in the News | Sept. 20, 2010

Monday’s selection of Pictures in the News is a knockout — just check out the right hook Mexico’s Tomas Rojas delivers to Japan’s Kohei Kono in the ninth round of their 12-round WBC super flyweight title bout in Japan.

Continuing the journey, we have camera shutters clicking at Fashion Week in London and Madrid; the aftermath of two trains colliding in India and Hurricane Karl in Mexico; a suspected Colombian drug trafficker known as “Beto Marin” during his extradition to the U.S. and millions of dollars in counterfeit pharmaceuticals being burned in a junkyard in China; and a Hindu priest in Nepal cleaning an idol prior to a festival while a worker in Berlin cleans trains in advance of the InnoTrans trade fair.

Stops in Chile, Hungary, the West Bank, Philippines, the Netherlands, Cuba, Turkey, Switzerland, Singapore and Washington, D.C. are all part of Pictures in the News today.
