  • In this Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013 photo, Barbecue smoke wafts among supporters of Argentina's President Cristina Fernandez as they celebrate the Supreme Court ruling on media law, in front of the National Congress, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the government has a responsibility to prevent media companies from growing so large that they dominate public discourse, upholding a law that could demolish the nation's largest media group, a leading opponent of the Argentine leader.

Argentina's Supreme Court rules on a controversial media law, sending the supporters of the Argentine president into the streets in celebration. Latin Americans prepare to honor their departed loved ones with traditional Dead of the Dead observances as the American holiday of Halloween starts to fuse with the pre-Columbian celebration. And Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto announces that an indigenous teacher who rights groups insist has been unjustly imprisoned for 13 years will be the first person he pardons under a change in Mexico's penal code.
