Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in Spain, where a bloodied woman is detained by riot police during a demonstration by coal miners in Madrid. The miners were protesting government subsidy cuts to their industry. Staying in Europe, revelers fall to the ground in the path of charging bulls in the annual running of the bulls at the San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain; a fan holds an anti-doping placard as riders pass by during the 10th stage of the Tour de France cycling race; and players keep their eye on the ball during a beach volleyball tournament in Berlin.

In India, Kashmiri villagers watch as rescue workers search the wreckage of a bus that plunged into a gorge while on a school trip, killing a teacher and a student and injuring 51 others; in Hinduism’s holiest city, Varanasi, devotees bathe at the River Ganges in the early morning; and in Hyderabad, a sign is posted indicating there is no space available for new graves at the Catholic Cemetery, an indication of India’s continuing rapid population growth.
