Pictures in the News | Oct. 21, 2010

It’s just a walk in the park as we begin Thursday’s Pictures in the News, with the autumn colors shining bright in Stavropol, Russia. Staying on the feature trail, we have a mass wedding ceremony for 3,200 brides and grooms in Yemen; a Maltese terrier getting primped before competition at the Asian Dog Show in Bangkok, Thailand; and an artist in India preparing earthen lamps for the coming festival of lights.

From there, we’re all news, all the time: starting in Greece, where 2,000 students marched in Athens to protest against planned education changes and an austerity measure. In France, protests over a retirement system overhaul have degenerated into violence in scattered sites around the country. Elsewhere, protesters lighted up the night sky with firecrackers during violent demonstrations against the opening of a new waste dump in Italy, and soldiers pulled up a bus that was swept away by floods in Vietnam.

Check back later as we add to our Pictures in the News feature.
