Pictures in the News | April 20, 2011

We begin Wednesday’s Pictures in the News feature in Louisiana, where it was one year ago today that an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico killed 11 workers and spewed nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the gulf.

This is the week leading up to Easter, and countries around the world are marking the holiday in many different ways. In the West Bank, Christian pilgrims stand in the Jordan River at the site known as Qasr el-Yahud, where it is believed John the Baptist baptised Jesus; in Spain, a penitent of the Cofradia de Jesus del Via crucis waits for the start of a Holy Week procession in Zamora; and in France, it’s all about the chocolate, as employees at La Maison du Chocolat spread the confection at their workshop in Nanterre in preparation for making Easter creations.

Elsewhere, a traditional tiger dance is performed during a ceremony at Kamaishi Elementary School in Japan after the area was devastated by the earthquake and tsunami; people enjoy the sunshine on a beach in southern England; and members of the Bulanting cleanse themselves in a river after their Lenten procession on Marinduque Island in the Philippines.
