In other parts of Asia, an injured climber is rescued after an avalanche swept away climbers on a Himalayan peak in Nepal, leaving at least nine dead and six others missing; Tibetan exiles rotate prayer wheels at the Tsuglakhang temple in Dharmsala; and an Afghan villager rides a donkey on a dusty road in the Zadyan district of Balkh province.

Over in Europe, conservation staff at Westminster Abbey clean the Cosmati pavement surrounding the tomb of Edward the Confessor in London; cheered on by a crowd, a German man pours beer over his head at the Oktoberfest in Munich; and fans enjoy the third edition of the Budapest Guinness Street Dance in the Pecsa Music Hall in Hungary.

Add stops in Belgium, Russia and the Democratic Republic of Congo to round out the report.
