Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, where actor Jack Nicholson was on hand as former Laker Shaquille O’Neal had his number retired. In Orange County, a sheriff’s deputy  talks to the parents of missing hiker Kyndall Jack before sending a team of rescuers to check out  a flicker of light seen on a foggy ridge in Trabuco Canyon.

The wrestlers on the Panorama High girls’ team have broken into a male-dominated sport that doesn’t fully welcome them. They’re breaking up old notions of femininity — in their school, and in their families. Read story

On the East Coast,  hundreds of gun rights advocates are gathering at the statehouse in Hartford, Conn., ahead of a vote on proposed gun-control legislation. Jeralean Talley, at 113 years old, took over the title of  oldest American when Elsie Thompson of Clearwater, Fla., died March 21, just weeks before her 114th birthday.

Elsewhere, Burmese workers clear debris inside a burned mosque in Yangon; protests broke out in the West Bank after Palestinian prisoner Maysara abu Hamdieh died of cancer in an Israeli jail; and today marks the 80th anniversary of the first manned flight over Mt. Everest.
