Friday’s Pictures in the News begin in England, where the Glastonbury Music Festival is underway. Now in its fifth decade, the event has grown from a humble gathering of 1,500 people on Michael Eavis’s Worthy dairy farm in 1970, each paying 1 pound and receiving free milk, to a giant five-day celebration of music costing 195 pounds for a basic ticket.

On the African continent, First Lady Michelle Obama and her family are welcomed by traditional dancers in  Botswana; and the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier, the longest naval vessel in the world, passes through the Suez Canal, on its way to the Mediterranean.

In Europe, the trash crisis continues in Italy, where the Naples fire brigade was called to more than 50 blazes; some unusual fashion designs were on display at the Spring/Summer 2012 fashion collection in Paris; and a young elephant named Nelly kicks a ball  to predict the result of the upcoming Women’s World Cup soccer match between Germany and Canada.
