Funerals begin in Norway for victims of last week’s massacre at the youth camp of the Norwegian Labor Party; in China, premier Wen Jiabao bows at the accident scene in Wenzhou, east Zhejiang province, as he pays respects to victims of the July 23 high-speed train crash that killed 39 and injured almost 200; while on the outskirts of Kathmandu, Nepalese people watch a straw effigy of Ghanta Karna burning during celebrations of the Hindu festival of Gathemangal.

In Sanaa, a Yemeni woman shows her support at a rally for president Ali Abdullah Saleh by taping an image of the country’s leader to her forehead; a brave protester holds an Egyptian flag while balancing somewhat precariously on a light pole at Tahrir Square in Cairo, where thousands united in wanting change gathered; a smiling rebel fighter exchanges his weapon for a traditional oud instrument and takes a musical break after rebels took control of the southwest village of Gazaia; while in Albania, 16 miners rest on bits of cardboard and old blankets as they stage a hunger strike 4,600 feet below the surface, staying close to machinery to keep warm.

A 26-foot-long khachapuri is presented in central Batumi in Georgia. The cheese pastry was baked using 100 eggs, 198 pounds of cheese, 330 pounds of flour, and was eaten in 92 seconds by hungry onlookers, which wasn’t long at all; iPhone cases decorated with plastic models of food are on display in Yokohama, Japan; while in China’s Hubei province, Weiwei, a 6-year-old male panda appears to contemplate spending the weekend behind bars.

Feel free to explore Pictures in the News, our snapshot of the world today.

It shouldn’t take long.
