The Week in Pictures | Nov. 1-7, 2010

Each week we bring you the best images from around the world in our Week in Pictures photo gallery.

This week a Qantas Airways A380 Airbus is forced to land shortly after takeoff from Singapore when an engine failed, raining debris over Indonesia; ultra-nationalist demonstrators on the outskirts of Moscow hit the streets for National Unity Day; and a clandestine drug-running tunnel, spanning the U.S. border with Mexico, is discovered together with tons of marijuana hidden in warehouses on both sides.

In London, a Harrier fighter jet hangs from a ceiling as part of an art exhibit at the Tate Britain; the space shuttle Discovery’s launch is again delayed at Cape Canaveral; and from deep space, comet Hartley 2 is ready for its 280-million-metric-ton close-up.

Indonesia’s Mount Merapi continues to erupt, wreaking further death and destruction; a mosque bombing in Pakistan claims dozens of  lives; and Indian Shiite Muslims burn an effigy of President Obama ahead of his visit.

On a lighter note, we find a Swiss high-wire artist walking a fine line 81 feet above the ground against a stunning backdrop of the Bernese Oberland; and not to be outdone, the French climber known as “Spiderman” scales the 541-foot Singapore Flyer observation wheel.

We have an image of “the most miserable day of the year” shot in Glasgow. According to a poll in Britain, the Scottish city heads the arguably depressing list. In Poland, a 32-ton, 108-foot tall concrete-and-metal statue of Jesus is constructed; the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Fair is underway; and South Korean monks and Buddhists in Seoul hold a service for the upcoming G-20 summit.

This is just a glimpse of The Week in Pictures. You’ll find much more to enjoy.
