A child from southern Somalia holds his brother as they wait outside a ruined building before making their way to the internally displaced persons camps after fleeing from southern Somalia. Thousands of people have arrived in Mogadishu over the last two weeks seeking assistance, and the number is increasing by the day due to lack of water and food. The worst drought on record in the Horn of Africa has sparked a severe food crisis and high malnutrition rates, with parts of Kenya and Somalia experiencing pre-famine conditions, the United Nations has said.

Friday’s Pictures in the News begins in Sudan, a day before South Sudan secedes from the north and becomes the world’s newest nation. Staying in Africa, thousands of people have arrived in Mogadishu over the last two weeks seeking assistance, and the number is increasing by the day due to lack of water and food. The worst recorded drought in the Horn of Africa has sparked a severe food crisis and high malnutrition rates, with parts of Kenya and Somalia experiencing pre-famine conditions.

The San Fermin festival continues in Spain with the bulls taking down a number of revelers and the parade of the giants heads through the streets of Pamplona.

Elsewhere, thousands of Egyptians gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Friday to demand faster reforms; Russians cool off in a pool inside a ruined warehouse that was formed from a local spring which dates back to the 19th century; and a graduation ceremony for Afghan national army noncommissioned officer recruits in Kabul.

Add stops in Germany, Istanbul and Pakistan to round out the report. Enjoy.
