Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in Washington, where revelers in Seattle display U.S. and gay pride flags as they celebrate early election returns favoring Washington state’s referendum that would legalize same-sex marriage. Across the country in Florida, Miami-Dade elections workers counted ballots through the night.

Reactions outside the U.S. to the presidential election include Indian students outside the landmark Imperial Hotel in New Delhi cheering Obama and villagers in Kogelo, home to Sarah Obama, the step-grandmother of President Obama, in western Kenya celebrating the president’s reelection.

In Russia, a parade in Red Square commemorates a 1941 event when Soviet soldiers marched through the square to the front lines of World War II. And in China, paramilitary policemen guard near the Great Hall of the People, where Chinese Communist Party’s 18th National Congress will be held in Beijing. The once-a-decade event installs a new leadership to run the world’s second largest economy and newly assertive global power.
