Turkish riot police fire a water cannon as they clash with Kurdish demonstrators during a protest in support of a hunger strike movement by Kurdish prisoners. The justice minister said at least 680 prisoners are on a hunger strike across the country, while Turkey's Human Rights Assn., which closely follows the country's long-simmering Kurdish conflict, said 715 inmates are striking in 48 prisons. Some of the prisoners have been without food for 43 days, and there are fears about their deteriorating condition. Hunger-striking protesters have three main demands: the release of imprisoned Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan, the right to Kurdish language education and the right to use Kurdish in Turkish courts.

Hurricane turned super-storm Sandy decimated the East Coast, shutting down mass transit systems, schools and financial markets. It sent coastal residents fleeing as it delivered high winds and soaking rain. In the aftermath, drivers had to line up for hours at gas stations that were struggling to stay supplied, and commuters waited in lines as long as a city block to board shuttle buses, instead of trains, into Manhattan as the city tried to recover from the after-effects of the storm.

In Iran, students passed 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.

Violence continued in Syria, where a bomb damaged buildings in Jaramana, southern Damascus. According to SANA, 11 were killed and 20 wounded.  In Aleppo, a street of shattered buildings was viewed partially through a mirror used by rebel fighters to keep an eye on enemy positions in the Karm al-Jabel battlefield.

In the Philippines, relatives spruced up the tombs of their loved ones in preparation for All Saints Day. In Myanmar, which has been torn by violence between Buddhists and Rohingya Muslims, children at a refugee camp pumped water for their family.

Elsewhere, Pakistani children who have been displaced from their villages in Bajur because of fighting between militants and security forces sat along a roadside in Islamabad; an Indian laborer took a morning bath at a marketplace in New Delhi; and an elephant sprayed water on his mahout, or handler, before offering safari rides to tourists at the Pobitora national park in India.

Add stops in Mexico, Nepal, England, India, Germany, Philippines and the Czech Republic to round out the report.
