Thursday’s Pictures in the News begins in London, where an American shrimp farmer  from Texas daubs herself with oil before trying to gain access to the British Petroleum annual general meeting. Flowers are left on the platform at the Oktyabrskaya metro station in memory of victims killed by Monday’s bomb blast in Minsk, Belarus; workers in Athens celebrate in front of Greece’s Supreme Court  following a ruling that they be rehired; and locals from the Hungarian village of Holloko celebrate Easter with the traditional “watering of the girls,” a tribal fertility ritual rooted in the area’s pre-Christian past.

Uganda became the latest African nation to be engaged in conflict, as police fired tear gas into a hospital during a skirmish with stone-throwing protesters during demonstrations against rising fuel and food prices broke out in several locations across the country, and an Afghan government employee searches through debris at his office which was destroyed after a suicide attack in Musayi district of Kabul.
