Los Angeles police continue to investigate a hit-and-run incident on the Venice Boardwalk, where we begin Monday’s Pictures in the News. Remembrances and flowers have been placed at a makeshift memorial for the Italian tourist who was killed in the incident and for the 11 other people injured; a suspect, Nathan Campbell, is being held on suspicion of murder.    More photos

Also in today’s roundup:

Irwindale, Calif: The curtain closes on the X Games’ 11-year run in the Los Angeles area. More photos

Silivri, Turkey: Demonstrators are hit by a blast from a water cannon during after a court decision to sentence a former army chief and other top brass to life in prison for plotting to overthrow the  government.

London: Order up! See the burger made from cattle stem cells. The cells grew into strands of beef, and 20,000 strands made up one burger. After showing off the beef patty, researchers cooked it and ran a taste test. (Now the big question: Did it taste like chicken?)

Berlin: Why are 1,600 smiling foam pandas standing outside a train station?

Hiroshima, Japan: The city prepares to mark the 68th anniversary of the dropping of an atomic bomb.

There’s more, too, including pictures of Bill Clinton dancing in Zambia and of a two-story-tall rocking horse rolling into London, so please take a look.
