Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in Europe, where workers around the continent sought to unite in a string of strikes and demonstrations Wednesday. In Spain, a protester sits in the street during a general strike in Madrid and dozens of strikers try to force their way into a bank office in Valencia. A protester in Athens covers her head in a plastic bag, meant to show that austerity measures are suffocating Greeks; riot police and anti-austerity protesters clashed in Rome; and a woman dressed as a devil demonstrates in Paris.

We have nature on display with an image of Sheldon Glacier on Adelaide Island in Antarctica. A new U.S.-British study examines an increase in Antarctic sea ice cover over the last two decades.

Elsewhere, morning mist floats above the water of Lake Orfu in Hungary with autumn colors in the background; a 4-day-old silverback gorilla holds on to his mother in the Ramat Gan safari park in Israel; and Oman fans sit under the scoreboard while the sun sets during a FIFA World Cup Asian qualifier match between Oman and Japan at Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Muscat.
