Police beat a protesting motorized-rickshaw driver as the drivers blocked a portion of a Manila road, causing heavy traffic. Several people were hurt when the dispersal turned violent, with police firing tear gas and the drivers throwing stones. The protest was triggered by a decision by Manila city hall to ban the rickshaw -- the cheapest mode of transportation for many inner-city residents -- from the city's major roads.

Brazilian riot police check the scene after exploding the bunker of a suspected drug lord in the Vila Cruzeiro shanty town. The military and police last week began a gang sweep of the area, which authorities say has become one of the most feared and lawless parts of Rio. The operation was seen as a key step in securing Rio ahead of its hosting duties for World Cup events in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016.

Pictures in the News | Dec. 1, 2010

To commemorate World AIDS Day, we have images from South Africa, Spain, India, Hungary, Turkey, China, England and San Francisco, just a few of the many places where rallies and awareness events were held.

Wednesday also marks the first day of Hanukkah, the eight-day-long Jewish Festival of Lights that marks the re-dedication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem in the second century BC.

In the English countryside, a snow-covered deer becomes an unwitting participant in the frigid festivities sweeping much of Europe while in the warmer climes of Costa Rica, a clearly misinformed ant takes a stroll, quite possibly its last, on a snake.

We also have Father Frost, the Russian equivalent of Santa Claus; pictorial scenes from Italy and China; and the aftermath of a police action in the Vila Cruzeiro shanty town in Rio de Janeiro.

Enjoy.
