Friday’s Pictures in the News begins in Saudi Arabia, where Muslim pilgrims in Mina cast stones at a pillar to symbolize the stoning of Satan.  The ritual called Jamarat is a rite of the annual hajj pilgrimage. In Senegal, residents in Dakar get ready for the Eid al-Adha feast. Known locally as Tabaski, it celebrates Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son.

Tragedy struck in Afghanistan when a suicide bomber killed at least 40 people in the northern part of the country, attacking people leaving mosque on one of the holiest days in the Muslim calendar.

Filipino Catholic devotees welcome the statue of St. Pedro Calungsod in Manila. Church bells rang out across the country as millions attended special masses to celebrate the canonization of the country’s second saint, a young missionary killed more than 340 years ago.

Elsewhere, models prepare for the Bodyspectra body painting event in Cape Town, South Africa; a satellite image shows Hurricane Sandy as it careens toward the eastern United States; tensions are high for an Armenian soldier of the self-proclaimed republic of Nagorno-Karabagh at the frontline on the border with Azerbaijan.
