Friday was International Woman’s Day and members of the All India Peace and Solidarity Organization launched sky lanterns in Hyderabad. The celebration wasn’t so peaceful in the Philippines, where protesters clashed with police as they tried to march on the U.S. Embassy in Manila. Thousands of Filipinos commemorated the day with calls to stop violence against women and children.

An image from NASA video shows the SpaceX’s Dragon capsule attached to the Canada Arm at the International Space Station. The privately owned unmanned U.S. space capsule arrived at the station on Sunday, bringing  food, scientific materials and other crucial equipment.

In the U.S., a late winter storm is expected to cover the Mid-Atlantic region after dropping almost a foot of snow across the West and Midwest; members of the San Antonio Living History Assn. fire muskets in a predawn ceremony to remember the 1836 Battle of the Alamo; and LAPD investigators surround a home in Watts, where a barricaded gunman had fired shots at officers. The gunman was found inside dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound and a gravely wounded woman was also found inside the premises.

In Europe, lava erupts at the New Sud-Est crater of Mt. Etna’s volcano in Sicily, and dragon boat athletes are in silhouette against the sinking sun as they practice in Germany.

On the African continent, Masai line up to vote in a general election in Kenya; clashes erupt between demonstrators and security forces outside a government building in the Egyptian Nile Delta city of Mansoura; and people outside of the Benoni Magistrate’s Court plead no bail be granted to eight policemen implicated in the death of Mido Macia, the 27-year-old taxi driver who died on Feb. 26, 2013 after being severely beaten and dragged behind a vehicle, allegedly by police.

There was violence in Pakistan, where a man moves his bicycle from his damaged home at the site of a bomb blast in Karachi. Pakistan’s largest city shut down on Monday to mourn the more than 40 people killed by a car bomb in a Shiite Muslim neighborhood, the latest in a series of devastating attacks as Pakistan prepares for elections. Meanwhile, across town in the Sohrab Goth area, Pakistani Rangers return fire after unknown gunmen attacked a funeral possession for victims of the bomb blast. Reports state that two people were killed and 22 injured.

Elsewhere, a toy poodle is groomed during the second day of the Crufts dog show in Birmingham, England; a Palestinian protester runs with a young boy in his arms during clashes with Israeli security forces in the village of Kafr Qaddum; and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un uses binoculars to look at the Jangjae Islet Defense Detachment near Yeonpyeong Island.
