Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in India. A supporter of telecommunications company Uninor, his face painted, participates in a demonstration in New Delhi. In Jalandhar, rescue workers continued searching for people buried Sunday night when a three-story blanket factory buckled while night-shift workers were inside.

Stateside, members of Bankrupting America, dressed as a clown and a mind reader, hand out “resumes” in front of the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., to make fun of a Wednesday hearing about a General Services Administration spending scandal.

In Jakarta, Indonesia, activists from the environment action group Greenpeace, wearing suits bearing the colors and pattern of the endangered Sumatran tiger, gather in a sprawling Forest Ministry compound in a symbolic protest for the “homeless Sumatran tigers.” In Sudan, girls from the Abu Shouk camp for Internal Displaced People celebrate the opening of 10 new classrooms. And in northwestern Spain, high winds and monster waves bring fishing activity to a halt as ships remain moored in port.

Enjoy.
