Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in China, where police and residents scramble to safety after a tidal surge roars past a barrier along the Qiantang River. On the flip side, a reveler dives on a street covered with squashed tomatoes in Spain. Tens of thousands of revelers in the town of Bunol splattered each other with 120 tons of squashed tomatoes in a gigantic annual food fight known as the “Tomatina.”

In Israel, a dog herds a loggerhead turtle back into the Mediterranean Sea after his release at Givat Olga beach. The turtle, named Haim, was accidentally hooked in May by a fisherman and was treated by the Israeli National Park Authority before its release.

Elsewhere, women pray in historic Naqsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan on the first day of Eid al-Fitr in Iran; residents of a squatters’ camp attempt to stop riot police from escorting a demolition team to their homes in Manila; and a Chinese tourist poses with a North Korean flag as he visits Mount Kumgang in North Korea. Since South Korean tourists have been barred from the luxury resort, known abroad as Diamond Mountain, North Korea has begun courting Chinese and other international tourists.

Add stops in Libya, Japan and South Korea to round out the report.
