Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in London, where a group of people sit on a set of Olympic rings floating in the River Thames. The city will host the 2012 Olympics with the opening ceremony on Friday.

Water is released from the Three Gorges Dam in China, a gigantic hydropower project on the Yangtze River, after heavy downpours in the upper reaches of the dam caused the highest flood peak of the year. Weekend floods in Beijing caused “significant losses” and casualty numbers are still being tallied, the head of the worst-hit district has said, as residents of China’s capital question the official toll.

Elsewhere, an Indonesian woman cleans a water-soaked Koran outside a damaged mosque following a flash flood in Padang, the capital of West Sumatra; Muslims hailing from India’s northeastern Assam state and living in New Delhi shout slogans during a protest against the ethnic violence; and an Israeli boy receives help to fit a gas mask to his head at a distribution center on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

Add stops in Germany, Spain and South Korea to round out the report.
