Pictures in the News | Jan. 18, 2012

Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins high in the Alps of Switzerland, where Lindsey Jacobellis competes during the qualification at the women’s snowboard cross World Cup race in Veysonnaz. Next door in Germany, mountain rescuer Thomas Merkel and his rescue dog Jessy look for a potential avalanche victim in a snow cave near Garmisch-Partenkirchen during a drill, as the danger of avalanches grows in the Alps region after heavy snowfall.

Divers of the Italian paramilitary Carabinieri police are in the water close to the wrecked Costa Concordia cruise ship off the coast of Giglio Island. A magistrate in Italy has said she ordered the house arrest of the cruise ship’s captain because there is a risk he may repeat his “criminal conduct.” See Gallery

On the protest front, an Occupy London supporter performs songs outside the High Court. The City of London Corporation has won its legal bid to have the Occupy London movement removed from outside St. Paul’s Cathedral. And police officers detain a man wearing a grim reaper costume after he tried to take part in an unauthorized protest just outside the Interior Ministry headquarters in Moscow.

Elsewhere, a devotee plunges into the ice-cold water of a lake in Minsk, Belarus, to celebrate Orthodox Epiphany; Ethiopian monks and priests are preparing for the annual festival of Timkat, which celebrates the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River; and an Indian stuntman performs on a “Wall of Death” at the Sangam, the confluence of rivers Ganges, Yamuna and mythical Saraswati during the annual monthlong Hindu religious fair of Magh Mela in Allahabad, India.
