A new initiative by Huffington Post Religion is documenting the diverse world of religion through a daily selection of photographs.
The Religion News in Photos project elaborates: "These images will provide insight into the colorful festivals that people around the world celebrate, illustrate the personal faith and practice of individuals and reveal the dramatic intersection of religion with art, culture, politics and world affairs.
In the latest batch of photos the following three pertain to Islamic issues (see slideshow):

Nov. 30: A Scene From the Protest in Tahrir Square An Egyptian man holds a copy of the Koran and a cross as thousands protesters gather in Cairo's landmark Tahrir square on Nov. 30, 2012, to protest against a decree by President Mohamed Morsi granting himself broad powers that shield his decisions from judicial review. A coalition of leading dissidents has called for protest rallies, including in Cairo's Tahrir Square where three days ago tens of thousands vented their anger at Morsi's decree, denouncing him as a 'dictator' in the mould of toppled president Hosni Mubarak.
