Pictures in the News | March 18, 2011

Friday’s Pictures in News begin in Japan. It has been  one week since the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami struck northern Japan, and  still the threat of radiation for workers at the crippled Fukushima reactor complex remains high. Lights are turned off during rolling blackouts in Misato City; survivors check lists of evacuees at an evacuation center  in Rikuzentakata; and  residents in Ofunato observe a moment of silence for victims.

In North Africa, rebels celebrate the U.N. resolution authorizing a no-fly zone in Tobruk, east of Tripoli; and in Cairo, Egyptians  protest a referendum in Tahrir Square that will be held Saturday. Further east, a police officer is struck by a petrol bomb during a clash between Palestinians and Israeli security forces.

On the lighter side, cricket fans climb a tree to get a better look at   India’s team training before Sunday’s ICC Cricket World Cup Group B match; farmers in the Indian village of  Pipalgaon transport their wheat crop on camels; and “zombies” take part in an annual parade in Tel Aviv before the Jewish holiday of Purim. Take a look.
