The coffin of John Horwood, who was hanged for murder in Bristol 190 years ago, is transported to his funeral. Horwood was sentenced to death in 1821 for the murder of a young girl, but because his body was used for dissection classes at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, he was never buried. His remains were discovered in a cupboard by distant relative Mary Halliwell, who arranged for her great-great-great-grandfather's brother to be buried.

Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begin in England, where a convicted murderer is buried — 190 years after he was hanged for the crime. John Horwood was sentenced to death in 1821, but because his body was used for dissection classes at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, he was never buried.

In Europe, we get a look at the JetLev-Flyer, a water-powered jet pack, as well as an unusual perspective on the Mercedes F800 sports car at a shareholders’ meeting in Berlin, and winter’s not yet finished in the alpine country of Switzerland with new snowfall in Klosters.

Minsk has declared Wednesday the day of mourning for those killed in Monday’s subway explosion. Belarus says it has detained a possible suspect in the bombing, which killed 12 people and wounded more than 200 others. Large waves batter a migrant boat as it nears the Sicilian island of Pantelleria, forcing passengers to abandon the boat and swim ashore in choppy waters. And in Rio de Janeiro, people pray during a Mass held outside the public school where 12 children were killed by a gunman last week.
