Monday’s Pictures in the News begin with images of the observance of All Saints’ Day in various cities. But “the most miserable day of the year,” according to a poll in Britain, has Glasgow, Scotland, at the top of the arguably depressing list. Meanwhile in London, a Harrier fighter jet hangs vertically from the ceiling as part of an art exhibit at the Tate Britain.

In Indonesia, the Merapi volcano continues to erupt, forcing villagers to evacuate to safer areas and keeping law enforcement busy with looters. In Italy, more than 2,000 tons of garbage have piled up in the streets of Naples and the surrounding area; in Bulgaria, student protests against planned budget cuts for higher education continue; North Koreans say an emotional goodbye to their South Korean relatives after a three-day reunion; and in Nepal a professional sky-diving team take a jump from 14,000 feet.

A continent or two away, an igloo made entirely of refrigerators promotes energy conservation on a street in Hamburg, Germany, and a snowman begins to melt in Ottawa, Canada, where almost 3 inches of snow fell over the weekend, with much more to come. Brrrrr.
