A mosque in Peshwar, Pakistan, glows brightly at dusk during celebrations marking Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi, the anniversary of the birth of the Prophet Mohammad; in Egypt, with tourists yet to return after the recent uprising, a lone visitor watches the sound and light show at the Giza pyramids; while in Liverpool, England, an outdoor art installation, part of the Liverpool Discovers Art Celebration, contrasts colorful, if incongruous, forms of runners against a bleak, industrial landscape.

Greenpeace activists in Germany chain themselves to railway tracks to protest the transport of 56 tons of nuclear waste from a reprocessing plant shut down two decades ago. In Kiev, Ukrainians mark the 22nd anniversary of the end of the Afghan war by placing flowers near the monument dedicated to soldiers who died during the Soviet campaign in Afghanistan, and in Mombasa, Kenya, celebrations mark the return of the Korean-flagged fishing vessel MV Keumi after it was held captive for five months by Somali pirates.

Fashion Week in New York finds a backstage quintet of sliders facing an uncertain future; a new world speed record on ice is set on a frozen Baltic Sea off the Finnish coast in a Bentley that hit 205.48 miles per hour, and fortunately for the driver, nothing else; in Maine, freshly caught shrimp with bad timing are placed on ice as the shrimping season draws to an early close; while across the pond, a feline with street smarts and a license to kill is brought to 10 Downing Street to deal with a rat pack that has settled in a smidgen too comfortably at the British Prime Minister’s London residence.

It’s unlikely they’ll wake up in a city that never sleeps.
