Monday’s Pictures in the News begins in Sarajevo, where Bosnian Orthodox Serbs light candles during Christmas Mass at Congregational Church of the Mother of God to commemorate passed souls of their relatives.  Dominantly Orthodox Christians, Bosnian Serbs observe the old Julian calendar differing from the Catholic and secular Gregorian calendar, established in the 16th century. In nearby Tbilisi, Georgians take part in a religious procession to mark the Orthodox Christmas.

In Europe, national health workers march during the first major demonstration of the year in Madrid against government-imposed austerity measures and labor reforms; Pope Benedict XVI delivers his annual state of the world address to accredited ambassadors at the Regia Hall in Vatican City; and heavy snow blanketed Istanbul, Turkey, paralyzing daily life and disrupting air traffic.

Elsewhere, Plosky Tolbachik volcano erupts in Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka peninsula; supporters cheer during the inauguration ceremony for President John Dramani Mahama at Independence Square in Ghana; and a Palestinian boy uses a cardboard box to protect himself from rain and strong gusts of wind on a winter day in Gaza City.

Add stops in India, China, Germany and Switzerland to round out the report.
