Pictures in the News | Jan. 25, 2011

President Obama delivers the State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.; Tibetan monks take part in the opening ceremony of the American Museum of Natural History’s “Global Weekends: Brain and the Tibetan Creative Mind” in New York; while in Paris, protesters symbolically shrouded in body bags demonstrate outside the French Senate, currently debating a proposed law that would legalize euthanasia.

In Moscow, people place flowers at Domodedovo Airport, one day after a suicide bomber detonated a powerful explosion that killed 35 and injured 130; protesters demonstrate against the government of President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo; and at a shanty town in San Juan City, Filipino riot police fire tear gas into a crowd protesting the demolition of their humble homes.

Back in our nation’s capital, Elmo finds himself aloft outside the U.S. Supreme Court as an unwitting activist-on-a-stick ; a jovial Prince Albert II of Monaco clowns around his city-state in a wig; while at a zoo in China, a terrified white rabbit finds himself face-to-face with a tiger cub to encourage the ferocious feline’s hunting instinct. The Chinese Lunar New Year begins Feb. 3, marking the end of the Year of the Tiger and the beginning of the Year of the Rabbit, but arguably not for this one.

In addition, we pull images from Australia, England, Moldova, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Tunisia out of the hat for today’s Pictures in the News, adding color to our global photographic journey. It’s just not white.
