We have an eclectic mix in Wednesday’s Pictures in the News, beginning in Russia, with worshipers lighting candles during celebrations for the religious holiday of the Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God in St. Petersburg and ending with a Filipino man ‘planking’ near the gates of Malacanang presidential palace in Manila.

In between, villagers are airlifted from remote regions in northeastern India after a Himalayan quake; an anti-Kadafi fighter sitting on a Soviet-made Scud missile outside a village near Surt; flood victims camped out near inundated fields as international aid groups struggle to respond to Pakistan’s second major bout of flooding in just over a year.

Add in Tori, a 5-year-old male orangutan, smoking a cigarette at a zoo in Indonesia; Typhoon Roke bearing down on Japan’s tsunami-ravaged northeastern coast; and Israeli soldiers clashing with Palestinian stone throwers at the Qalandia checkpoint in Ramallah, and you have our report. Check back later in the day as we add to our Pictures in the News feature.
