Normally, companies of uniformed marchers would parade through the streets in honor of the city's namesake, but rain canceled much of this year's celebration, including a march by more than 4,000 drummers.

We begin Friday’s Pictures in the News in the Basque region of Spain, where an annual holiday tradition was spoiled by rain. More than 4,000 uniformed marchers had been expected to parade through the streets of San Sebastian, playing drums and barrels in honor of the city’s namesake.

The search-and-rescue operation aboard the wrecked cruise ship Costa Concordia was suspended again, as the vessel shifted on the rocks on which it is resting and debris washed up along the coast of the Italian island of Giglio. See Gallery.

Elsewhere, zookeepers attended to a newborn polar bear at the Ocean Aquarium of Penglai in China; couples at St. Pancras Station in London broke the record for longest hug; and Egyptian protesters chanted slogans at a rally honoring those killed in clashes with security forces in Tahrir Square during the uprising that ousted President Hosni Mubarak.

Add stops in Greece, India, Ethiopia and the West Bank to round out the report.
