Pictures in the News | Oct. 6, 2010

Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begin in New York at the Indoor Carnival, which will open Friday; we’re in Philadelphia, where Phillies starter Roy Halladay tosses the first postseason no-hitter in more than 50 years; and at the mine in Chile, where hope is rising for rescue of the 33 workers trapped for two months.

In Los Angeles, traffic is snarled on a rain-slicked freeway,  and in Hungary a villager tries to deal with a flood of toxic mud in his backyard. We see street performers with the group Erth give a show to passers-by in South Korea, and in Kazakhstan an Orthodox priest blessing a Russian space vehicle.

In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, we’re face-to-face with a radiated rat snake; a 3-week-old Sumatran tiger cub makes her first public appearance at the zoo in Frankfurt, Germany; and a spider spins a dewy web in Switzerland.

We have more from the 19th Commonwealth Games in India, where a Ghana weightlifter is pinned under the bar after an unsuccessful lift during the men’s 69-kilogram competition, and Australia’s Emily Seebohm earns a gold medal in the 100-meter backstroke. Still in the sports department, Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers are in Spain for an exhibition game against FC Barcelona.

Stops in Pakistan, Venezuela and Vatican City are all part of today’s journey.
