  • June 21: A cameraman, unseen, takes a shot of cardboard cutouts of European leaders during a demonstration showing an 'alternative group photo' outside an EU summit in Brussels. The fingers in the ears symbolize what some see as the determination of Europe's politicians to avoid giving their voters a say in referendums on the new constitutional treaty. German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday was to urge Poland and Britain to give up their staunch opposition to key parts of a toned-down EU treaty as leaders start to gather for an EU summit meeting. Leaders depicted front row left to right are Poland's President Lech Kaczynski; French President Nicolas Sarkozy; European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso; German Chancellor Angela Merkel; British Prime Minister Tony Blair; and Finnish Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen.

  • June 21: A man watches from a balcony as satellite dishes are seen on buildings in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The project to 'pimp' the dishes is an initiative of a Dutch artist working with school children in an area of the city referred to as 'satellite city,' inhabited predominantly by first and second generation immigrants. The hooks on the roof are used all over the city to move furniture in and out of apartments using a rope and pulley, as the staircases are narrow.

  • June 21: School children in Ahmadabad, India, hold portraits of astronaut Sunita Williams and wave the Indian national flag during a prayer ceremony for her safe return from space. NASA managers kept close tabs on the weather Thursday as thunderstorms and low clouds threatened to prevent space shuttle Atlantis and its seven astronauts, including Williams, from landing after a trip to the international space station. Williams has set the record for longest single space flight by a woman.
  • June 21: Neela, 27, holds her child, born in a Caesarean section birth performed by 15-year-old Dhileepan Raj, outside her residence in Manaparai, 198 miles southwest of Chennai, India. Raj performed a filmed Caesarean section birth under his doctor parents' watch in southern India in an apparent bid to gain a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records as the youngest surgeon. Instead, the boy's father, Dr. K. Murugesan, could be stripped of his licenses and may face criminal charges, officials said.
