Elsewhere, Belgium was frozen by a national strike, called by unions to protest EU-ordered austerity measures and timed just hours before an EU summit; former Taliban militants in Herat handed over their weapons as part of a peace-reconciliation program; and the bones of 14  women killed by Gen. Francisco Franco’s army in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War are found in a mass grave in the town of Gerena.

Add stops in Egypt, Nepal, India, China and Myanmar.
