Wednesday’s Pictures in the News feature begins in Europe, where tens of thousands of people pack Pamplona’s streets for a wild kickoff to Spain’s best-known fiesta: the nine-day San Fermin Festival and its running of the bulls. In France, the Tour de France cycling race is in its fifth stage, and a Slovenian rider is injured after crashing in Carhaix. In Greece, turmoil continues as taxi drivers go on strike and banks try to solve the country’s economic crisis.

In Washington, former major-league pitcher Roger Clemens arrives for the first day of his perjury trial. Clemens is charged with giving false statements to a U.S. congressional committee investigating steroid use in baseball.

Elsewhere, Nepalese police prevent an exiled Tibetan from celebrating the Dalai Lama’s birthday, Ukraine’s former prime minister is on trial, and a former Russian pilot shows off his car converted into a plane.

Add stops in India, Syria and Kenya to round out the report.
