An Afghan police officer passes by a shattered wall as he visits a building that was occupied by Taliban militants in Kabul. The 20-hour insurgent attack in the heart of the city ended Wednesday morning after a final volley of helicopter gunfire as Afghan police ferreted out and killed the last few assailants who had taken over a half-built downtown building to fire on the nearby U.S. Embassy and NATO compounds.

We’re taking a clinical approach to begin Wednesday’s Pictures in the News, with a partial plastinated human body specimen at a workshop in China. Plastination is a process used in anatomy to preserve bodies or body parts. (Some viewers may find the image disturbing.)

Elsewhere, an Afghan police officer passes by a shattered wall of the building that was occupied by Taliban militants in Kabul after a 20-hour insurgent attack in the heart of the capital.

Birthday wishes were left in front of the former home of pop singer Amy Winehouse in London. Winehouse, who died

in July, would have been 28 years old today.

In other parts of the world, residents need to use  boats to get to the local store due to rising flooded waters near the Chao Phraya river in Thailand;  a passenger train collided with another train stopped at a signal in southern India, killing 10 people and injuring dozens more; and horses duel one another in China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
