We’re back in Indonesia to start Friday’s Pictures in the News feature, in which Mt. Merapi is spewing pyroclastic smoke again and the tsunami death toll has risen to more than 400. On a positive note, we bring you the image of a 2-month-old baby found in a storm drain that survived.

A portrait of former Argentinian President Nestor Kirchner is drawn on the ground in the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires; a Palestinian man is treated after getting pepper sprayed by Israeli border police during violent clashes in the West Bank; and Filipinos prepare to observe All Saints’ Day at a cemetery near Manila.

In Hong Kong, the setting sun is in sharp contrast to a snowstorm in Moscow, while autumn colors dominate the scene at a park in Switzerland. Take a look.
