Pictures in the News | July 2, 2015

Thursday’s Pictures in the News begins in Tennessee, where a CSX train carrying a flammable and toxic substance derailed and caught fire, prompting authorities to evacuate several thousand people.

Kuwait City: Thousands of Sunnis and Shiites from across the country take part in a mass funeral procession for 27 people killed in a suicide bombing by a sympathizer of Islamic State. Instead of fueling the kind of sectarian animosity that has devastated Iraq and Syria, the Kuwait attack has reawakened a sense of national solidarity not seen since Saddam Hussein’s 1990 invasion.

Beijing: A prominent Chinese lesbian couple held a simple ceremony Thursday to announce their informal marriage, in their latest effort to push for legalization of same-sex unions in China.

Gujranwala, Pakistan: Security officials rescue passengers after a train derailed into a canal. Reports said five people were killed and 200 injured.

Sacatepequez, Guatemala: The Fuego volcano spewed lava and columns of ash into the air and authorities have raised the alert level in the area to orange.

Add stops in Cuba, Germany, Indonesia and the Philippines to round out the report.
