Pictures in the News | March 12, 2012

Monday’s Pictures in the News begins in Alabama, where residents take cover from the rain as they listen to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney speak at the Whistle Stop cafe in Mobile. Alabama and Mississippi hold their primaries on Tuesday.

In India, an exile Tibetan woman holds a representation of a Tibetan flag during a protest to commemorate the Tibetan Women’s Uprising Day; members of Youth Against Corruption protest in New Delhi; and a stray dog smeared with colored powder walks in a lane on the last day of Holi festival celebrations in Bhopal.

Elsewhere, a Palestinian boy walks through the rubble of a destroyed building following an Israeli airstrike in Jabaliya; paramilitary policemen change guard in Tiananmen Square in Beijing; and Serbian citizens pay their respects at the grave of slain Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic at Belgrade’s new cemetery.

Add stops in Spain, Hungary, Pakistan and Bangladesh to round out the report.
