In Iran, students pass by a portrait of Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on their way to participate in an anti-U.S. rally marking the 33rd anniversary of U.S. Embassy takeover in front of the former embassy site in Tehran. Iranian students occupied the embassy on Nov. 4, 1979, after the U.S. granted permission for the shah to be hospitalized in the U.S. Fifty-three American diplomats and guards were held hostage by students for 444 days.

Elsewhere, Pakistani children who are displaced from their villages in Bajur due to fighting between militants and security forces sit along a roadside in Islamabad; an Indian laborer takes a bath in the morning at a marketplace in New Delhi; and an elephant sprays water on his Mahout, or handler, before offering safari rides to tourists at the Pobitora national park in India.

Add stops in Mexico, Nepal and the Czech Republic to round out the report.
