We begin Monday’s Pictures in the News back in Cairo, where protesters continue to occupy Tahrir Square, holding a symbolic funeral for Egyptian journalist Ahmed Mohammed Mahmoud, killed during clashes with pro-government supporters on Friday. Meanwhile, firefighters in Rio de Janeiro failed to save costumes, carriages and materials that were already prepared for this year’s carnivals; Thai and Cambodian troops clashed for a fourth straight day on Monday over a disputed border area surrounding a 900-year-old mountaintop temple; and masked supporters of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange protest as a two-day court hearing begins to decide Assange’s legal fate in London.

Chinese New Year festivities continue in China, where a mime dressed as Charlie Chaplin reacts to gigantic dinosaur-like creatures played by performers on stilts during a temple fair. In Afghanistan, young women practice martial arts at a club in the Enjil district of Herat. And in Sudan, southern Sudanese from the Toposa ethnic group celebrate the choice of separation from the north as they await confirmation of a secession vote that could pave the way in July for the creation of Africa’s newest state.
