Pictures in the News | Nov. 29, 2011

In Tuesday’s Pictures in the news, we start with a look inside the Rongbuk Monastery, the highest monastery in the world, perched at the base of the Earth’s highest peak, Mt Everest.

After a flurry of eviction threats, street protests and court maneuvering, Occupy L.A. remained standing at City Hall — prompting debate about the caution displayed by city leaders seeking to avoid violent clashes seen in other cities.

Elsewhere, polls opened for a second day of voting in Egypt’s landmark parliamentary elections, the first since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster in a popular uprising earlier this year; artists perform during a Vietnamese and Danish street art festival in Vietnam; and Pakistani human rights activists pay tribute to Pakistani soldiers killed in a NATO strike.

Add stops in China, Germany, Cambodia and Ukraine to round out the report.
