Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in China, where a bust of the Chinese philosopher Confucius lies on the ground in an abandoned stone-carving workshop southwest of Beijing. The small town situated in Hebei province has a history of stone carving dating back more than 2,000 years.

In Europe, Italian policemen celebrate the arrest of Michele Zagaria, the most senior boss of the Camorra criminal organization who was still at large. They found Zagaria by digging through a secret bunker near Naples, ending his 16 years on the run. Over in Portugal, pedestrians walk around Christmas decorations on the Rua Augusta, Lisbon’s main shopping street. The streets of downtown Lisbon are usually ablaze with Christmas lights around this time — but this year the city has put on a somber show that matches the mood of austerity.

On the protest front, demonstrators watch as police dismantle the Occupy San Francisco encampment; Filipino militant students clash with anti-riot police officers during a march toward the presidential palace in Manila; and Kenyan doctors outside the Ministry of Health  in Nairobi sing slogans on the third day of a nationwide strike. The doctors are demanding a salary hike of 300% from the government, paralyzing health facilities around the country.

Add stops in Nepal, Australia, India and Pakistan to round out the report.
