Pictures in the News | Nov. 5, 2010

Truth or dare? The truth in Friday’s Pictures in the News is that we show the exploits of  a couple of daredevils. Swiss pilot Yves Rossy  launched himself out of a hot-air balloon about 1.25 miles  high with a pair of jet-fitted wings attached and flew through the skies above western Switzerland. Not to be outdone, the French climber known as “Spiderman” scaled the 541-foot Singapore Flyer observation wheel in Singapore.

Back down on solid ground, we have a demonstration in Germany against nuclear waste storage; the installation of a  32-ton  concrete-and-metal statue of Jesus in Poland; and the lights and color of the Seoul Lantern Festival. In the news, Indonesia’s Mount Merapi continues to erupt,  wreaking havoc and death in the village of Argomulyo; a mosque bombing in Pakistan claims dozens of  lives; and Indian Shiite Muslims burn an effigy of President Obama ahead of his visit.
