Monday’s Pictures in the News begins in Asia, where a magnitude 6.8 earthquake hit northeastern India, Nepal and Tibet, killing at least 40 people and injuring hundreds. Rescue workers raced Monday to clear roads blocked by mudslides as they scrambled to reach remote villages cut off after the quake. In Pakistan, authorities scrambled to provide relief goods and evacuate marooned people displaced from flooded areas as the number of people affected in recent floods in Pakistan rose above 7 million.

On the protest front, hundreds of demonstrators descended on Lower Manhattan to “Occupy Wall Street,” attempting to disrupt pedestrian traffic for financial workers trying to get to work in New York. In Spain, riot police cleared out “indignant” protesters who had blocked the entrance to the Barcelona Stock Exchange, and workers from the Astilleros shipyard cut off traffic leading to the port of Seville during a protest.

On the lighter side, feathers were flying in Romania during the Days of Bucharest event that resembled something of a giant pillow fight. Add stops in Singapore, China, Japan and the Netherlands to round out the report.
