China’s President Hu Jintao, on a state visit to the United States, is welcomed to the White House for a dinner in his honor by President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, while Tibetan protesters across Pennsylvania Avenue express their opposition to his presence.

Israeli border guards fire tear gas at Palestinians throwing stones on the outskirts of Jerusalem; supporters of former Haitian President Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier demonstrate outside the courthouse in Port-au-Prince where he was charged with several counts of corruption; while in Tbilisi, a baby expresses his surprise at being an unwitting participant at a mass Georgian Orthodox Church baptism.

In Katmandu, Hindu devotees break clay pots during the Changu Narayan festival, where the city’s “living goddess,” known as the Kumari, makes a rare public appearance; a controversial carpet depicting Hungary’s history is presented at the European Council building in Brussels; and in Prague, preparations are underway for a major Andy Warhol exhibition.

This is just a glimpse of today’s global photographic journey; we have much more for you to enjoy. Jump right in — no need to be a baby.
