An exhibition of the European Organization for Nuclear Research entitled the Universe of Particles features a slow-speed representation of traces left by the collision of particles. U.S.-based physicists Tuesday reported finding strong hints of the Higgs boson, the elusive "god particle" believed to give objects mass, but said European data is needed to confirm any potential discovery. If physicists can confirm the existence of the Higgs boson, the last missing piece in the standard model of physics, the announcement would rank among the most important scientific breakthroughs of the last century.

Tuesday’s Pictures in the News begins in the Philippines, where rescue workers use jackhammers to look for victims trapped when a huge wall collapsed in Manila. Two people were killed by the collapse as heavy rains pounded the Philippine capital, bringing floods that have been worsened by garbage clogging the city’s sewers and drains.

On the science front, an image shows traces of the collision of particles at the Compact Muon Solenoid Experience in Geneva. U.S.-based physicists have reported finding strong hints of the Higgs boson, the elusive “god particle” believed to give objects mass, but said European data is needed to confirm any potential discovery.

In Indonesia, technicians from the Center for Orangutan Protection take a blood sample from a tranquilized orangutan getting a medical checkup at Taman Satwa Taru Jurug Zoo in Solo. Wild orangutan populations in Indonesia are severely threatened.

Elsewhere, members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard celebrate after launching a missile during maneuvers in an undisclosed location in Iran; Indian women carry building materials in pans on their heads at a construction site in Siliguri; and Belarusian athletes perform in a parade celebrating Day of the Republic, Belarus’ independence day, in Minsk.

Add stops in Spain, England, Kentucky and East Timor to round out the report.
