Supporters of President Hosni Mubarak, some riding horses and camels and wielding whips, clashed with anti-Mubarak protesters as Egypt’s upheaval took a dangerous new turn. In Dharamshala, Tibetan Buddhist monks hold up portraits of the Karmapa during a gathering at the Gyuto Monastery. Karmapa, one of Tibet’s top monks, appeared before thousands of followers to reassure them about a police probe into nearly $1 million in cash found at his monastery.

It’s Feb. 2, and that can only mean one thing, Groundhog Day. Punxsutawney Phil, the weather-predicting groundhog, made his annual appearance on Gobbler’s Knob and did not see his shadow, raising hopes for an early spring. Add stops in Thailand, Russia, Japan and India to round out the report.
