Ukrainian children and adults, some of them victims of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear plant accident, undergo medical treatment at the Oncological Hospital in Donetsk. The blasts at the Soviet-era plant created a cloud of radioactive dust that drifted over a large swath of Europe and still haunts millions of people in Ukraine and its neighbors.

Pictures in the News | March 23, 2011

Wednesday’s Pictures in the News bring time into focus with a passerby next to a gigantic ad for Swiss watchmaker Rolex at the Baselword fair in Switzerland, where watchmakers gave upbeat forecasts for 2011.

In Japan, the USS Ronald Reagan gets sprayed for radioactive decontamination; a sightseeing boat washed away by the March 11 tsunami sits on a ruined building in Otsuchi; and a dairy farmer watches as contaminated milk is dumped into a cornfield in Iitatemura.

Elsewhere around the world, there are plenty of protests. In London, for example, demonstrators on Downing Street protest British Chancellor George Osborne’s new budget; in Canberra, Australia, citizens decry a proposed carbon tax; in Russia, an environmentalist wearing a gas mask protests the use of nuclear power; and in Algeria, riot police officers shield themselves from fireworks launched by protesters angry about a plan to demolish homes. 

Add stops in Italy, Afghanistan and the Ukraine, and you have our report.
