In Monday’s Pictures in the News, cleanup continues in the Hungarian village of Devecser after last week’s spill of toxic red sludge and contamination of the Danube is monitored downstream in Serbia; cave divers in France search for a speleologist missing for several days in the Ardeche gorge; while in Chile, rescuers successfully test a capsule as they prepare to finally bring the 33 trapped miners, one by one, to the surface.

We’re in Paris ahead of Tuesday’s transportation strike that’s expected to affect both rail and air travel; in London, people gather at a memorial for victims of the 2005 bombings; and in New York we get a glimpse of color at the Columbus Day parade.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, on a trade mission to Russia, takes a ride with President Dmitry Medvedev in a vintage car from the Soviet era; in the Dominican Republic, a poor, patient patient awaits free eye surgery at a military clinic; and a herd of unsuspecting, well-heeled sheep find themselves on London’s famed Saville Row, the traditional home of bespoke tailoring, to promote English wool.

In addition, with images from Germany, Croatia, Indonesia, India and North Korea, the week, quite clearly, is off to a good start.

Jump right in — no need to be sheepish.
