Monday’s Pictures in the News begins in Portugal, where Huntington Beach native Brett Simpson flies off the lip at the RipCurl Pro Portugal at Supertubos in Peniche.

In Peshawar, a Pakistani police officer inspects a burned-out police check post following an attack by armed militants overnight that sparked a gun battle in which six police officers were killed. And in India, government employees in the state of Jammu and Kashmir are detained by police during a protest against the government and unpaid salaries in Srinagar, the summer capital; and Filipino Muslims celebrate after hearing news of the signing of a preliminary peace pact between the government and the nation’s largest Muslim rebel group during a rally outside the gates of the Malacanang presidential palace in Manila.

Elsewhere, a woman takes picture of fluorescent tube artwork as part of the “Dan Flavin Lights” exhibition at the Mumok Museum of Modern Art in Vienna; a tourist sits outside a cafe in flooded St. Mark’s Square in Venice; and an Indian artist paints earthen pots that will be used by Hindu women during the Navratri festival in Bhubaneswar.

Add stops in Belarus, Bangladesh, England and Switzerland to round out the report.
