Photo of the Day: What in the world?

Update: The correct answer to this was Bhopal, India, where survivors of the Bhopal gas tragedy, the world's worst industrial disaster in India, and other supporters burn an effigy of London Olympic organizing committee chairman Sebastian Coe as the effigy of Indian Olympic Association's Vijay K. Malhotra is in flames during a protest against a sponsorship deal with Dow Chemicals for the 2012 Olympics. Saturday was the 27th anniversary of a lethal gas leak from a Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal where an estimated 15,000 people died and tens of thousands were maimed in 1984.
