Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in South Africa, where thousands of striking miners singing and carrying sticks march on on the Lonmin Marikana mine.  Armored police trucks and helicopters kept watch as around 3,000 miners arrived at the entrance to the mine owned by the world’s No. 3 platinum producer, Lomin, where a deadly strike has killed 44 people, including 34 gunned down by officers in the worst episode of police violence since the end of apartheid.

An image from Syria shows  men throwing buckets of water toward a burning building in Aleppo. Government jets bombed the residential area, reducing many of its buildings to rubble.

Also in the news, Indian policemen detain a Tibetan exile shouting slogans during a protest against the visit of Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie in New Delhi; Israeli military cadets check their gear during training in a forest at the Elyakim training grounds in northern Israel; and competitors wearing Spider Man costumes get into the spirit of the event prior to the start of the  Cannonball 2000 annual car race in London.

Add stops in Thailand, Germany and California to round out the report.
