Monday’s Pictures in the News begins in the Philippines, where residents were throwing stones and bottles at anti-riot police as a demolition team cleared an informal settlers area in Manila to make way for a local government project.  More than 2 million people in Manila’s metropolitan area – roughly a fifth of the sprawling city’s population — live in shanty towns.

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.
