Occupy Wall Street protesters rally in a small park on Canal Street. Police evicted the protesters from their base in Zuccotti Park overnight. The National Lawyers Guild obtained a court order allowing the protesters to return with their tents to the park, where they have camped for two months.

People meditate after returning to Zuccotti Park.

13-month-old elephant Rania stretches her trunk out to touch the nose of her mahut during the Sonepur Mela in India. The cattle fair, held in the Indian state of Bihar, has its origins in ancient times, when people traded elephants and horses across the auspicious river Ganges. The mela used to attract traders from places as distant as Central Asia. It is one of Asia's largest cattle fairs and lasts for two weeks.
