Pictures in the News | Oct. 13, 2010

With Wednesday’s Pictures in the News, we’re back in Copiapo, Chile, where all 33 miners trapped since early August were safely and successfully brought to the surface amid much celebration and national pride.

Japan Festival 2011 is underway in Berlin, along with the city’s Festival of Lights; Pope Benedict XVI watches a BMX cyclist climb the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica during the pontiff’s weekly general audience; and in Switzerland, fighter jets streak ahead of flares fired during an alpine air show.

In France, the railway strike has begun in earnest; in New York City, commuters make their way through a light-dappled Grand Central Terminal; and in Philadelphia, a pedestrian passes through vented steam, backlit by the morning sun.

Scotch on the rocks takes on a whole new meaning in Montevideo, Uruguay; we’re at a dress rehearsal of  ‘Cadillac’ at the State Opera House in Vienna; and the Hayward Gallery, on the banks of the Thames in London, presents an exhibition of interactive art.

Events pictured in Hungary, Pakistan, India, North Korea and Poland are all part of today’s gallery, as is a moody image from Cape Town, South Africa, of an airborne kite surfer with a distant Table Mountain fading in the evening light.
