We are back in Cairo to begin Friday’s Pictures in the News feature. The mood was decidedly different Friday in Egypt as stone throwing between the pro- and anti-government factions gave way to peaceful demonstrations in Tahrir Square, where tens of thousands of Egyptians prayed for an immediate end to President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule. Chinese New Year celebrations are underway with fireworks lighting up Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbor, people wearing rabbits’ teeth and ears in a Beijing park and incense burning at a temple in Shanghai.

Super Bowl XLV is Sunday and the weather in the Dallas / Fort Worth area is a frigid 28 degrees Friday with snow falling. In Minnesota, Banjo, a 2-year-old male St. Bernard, takes over the driver’s seat of his master’s truck while awaiting his return.  Add stops in Germany, Japan, Syria and the United Arab Emirates to round out the report.
