Police were on high alert across Israel this week, poised to respond to any unrest resulting from a Palestinian bid to seek United Nations membership. Earlier in the week, Israeli soldiers clashed with Palestinian stone throwers at the Qalandia checkpoint in Ramallah.

Yemenese President Ali Abdullah Saleh made a surprise return to his country on Friday after more than three months of medical treatment in Saudi Arabia.

Afghans gathered in Kabul under tight security to bury Burhanuddin Rabbani, the government’s chief peace negotiator killed earlier in the week by a suicide bomber posing as a Taliban envoy with a message about possible talks.

In Asia, 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. Typhoon Roke bore down on Japan’s tsunami-ravaged northeastern coast; an anti-Kadafi fighter sat on a Soviet-made Scud missile outside a village near Surt; and 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.
