Wednesday’s Pictures in the News begins in a Southern California prison, where inmates at the California Rehabilitation Center in Norco perform during their graduation as a part of the Actor’s Gang Prison Project, an acting program intended to help rehabilitate them and discourage recidivism.

Also in the Southland, a 1,323.5 pound 12-foot-long shortfin mako shark was hauled in off the coast of Huntington Beach; a woman looks through the debris of her mother’s home in Lake Hughes after it was destroyed by the Powerhouse fire; and  jacaranda trees canopy a street in an old Santa Ana neighborhood. The colorful flowers high above the street and sidewalks are an annual spring spectacle.

Elsewhere, protests continue against Turkey’s ruling party, police brutality and the destruction of Taksim park for the sake of a development project (More Photos); Brad Pitt greets fans and signs autographs upon his arrival at the “World War Z” Germany premiere at Sony Centre in Berlin; and Germany and the Czech Republic scramble as a flood waters head north, sending thousands fleeing (More Photos).

Add stops in Russia, India, South Korea and China to round out the report.
