What better way to start Monday’s Pictures in the News than with a friendly game of swamp soccer in Finland. More than 300 teams and 5,000 players competed in the two-day event where field conditions were, let’s just say, nasty. Continuing with sport, Japanese boxer Toshiyuki Igarashi battled Philippine champion Sonny Boy Jaro during a WBC flyweight title match in Kasukabe, where Igarashi won by split decision; and Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland plays a shot during a practice round at the Royal Lytham & St Annes golf club before the forthcoming British Open Golf tournament.

Elsewhere, dozens of Palestinian children flash the victory sign with their chained hands during a protest in the West Bank city of Ramallah, calling for the release of jailed Palestinian children in Israeli prisons; tens of thousands of people gathered at a Tokyo park, demanding “sayonara,” or goodbye, to nuclear power as Japan prepares to restart yet another reactor; and Indian policemen detain Kashmiri teachers during a protest in Srinagar.
