Mine worker families were holding a party to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the closure of the mine, and to coincidentally celebrate the death of Margaret Thatcher, whom they blame for the decline of the mining industry and whose funeral was being held Wednesday in London.

Some 100 Ukrainians with hepatitis, tuberculosis, AIDS and other diseases line up with cotton sacks on their heads -- like condemned prisoners waiting for execution -- to build a living wall in front of the Cabinet of Ministers building. Protesters said 44,000 Ukrainians are "sentenced to death" this year because funds for life-saving treatment have not been allocated by the government.

In Boston, the city continues to cope following Monday’s explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

A  woman lights a candle to commemorate Holocaust victims on the bank of Danube River in Budapest during Holocaust Memorial Day, which marks the deportation of Hungarian Jews to Nazi death camps in World War II.

Ukrainians with diseases such as hepatitis, tuberculosis and AIDS wear cotton sacks on their heads — as if condemned prisoners waiting for execution — outside government buildings in Kiev. According to demonstrators, 44,000 Ukrainians are “sentenced to death” this year, because funds for life-saving treatment have not  been allocated by the government.

Elsewhere, a young Syrian boy collects plastic and metal items in a garbage dump in Aleppo; children have their heads shaved at a temple in South Korea before beginning a 30-day program to experience the life of Buddhist monks; and people in Myanmar donate blood, food and pay respects to elderly persons to celebrate the New Year of the Myanmar calendar.

Add stops in Russia, Germany and Afghanistan to round out the report.
