Pictures in the News | Nov. 30, 2010

Tuesday’s Pictures in the News begin in Europe, where it’s cold — really cold. It’s so frigid, a parhelion, or sundog, forms over Lake Malaren in Stockholm. The phenomenon occurs when the sun shines through a thin cloud of ice crystals. In France, the blades of wind turbines appear frozen in the morning mist, while in Germany, the sky is blue, but almost everything else is white in snow-covered Freiburg.

With World AIDS Day coming Wednesday, activists light candles at an AIDS awareness campaign in India and the White House displays a giant AIDS ribbon; a Hungarian fisherman collected fish at Central Europe’s biggest fishpond complex; and a bride throws her bouquet while standing on a miniature version of the Eiffel Tower in the industrial Ukrainian city of Donetsk.

Protests over education reform continue in Europe, where British police officers scuffled with protesters during demonstrations in London and Leeds, while Italian students clashed with police in downtown Milan.

In Pakistan, a steelworker washes after a shift that lasts just one hour because of the extreme conditions; in Egypt, a pyramid at Giza is patrolled via camel; and in New York, a complex, colorful mural forms part of a series by city artists.
