Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in Indonesia, where a zookeeper bathes an orangutan  under the temporary care of a team sent to improve conditions at a zoo where, according to reports, many animals have been dying.

Elsewhere, demonstrators hold a puppet of Donald Trump outside the Scottish Parliament; a massive fire rages in “La Primavera” forest in Guadalajara, Mexico; and German peacekeepers arrive in Kosovo ahead of next month’s election in neighboring Serbia.
