“So long as nuclear weapons exist, we are not truly safe,” President Obama told a large crowd outside the Brandenberg Gate in Berlin, which leads off Wednesday’s Pictures in the News. The president’s speech, delivered under a blistering afternoon sun in the city where President John F. Kennedy gave his “Ich bin ein Berliner” (I am a Berliner) speech 50 years ago,  marked Obama’s return to a conversation about disarmament.

Elsewhere in today’s roundup:
