Today in Pictures: October 16

Cats compete in Turkey, Soldiers celebrate in South Sudan, Kidnapped girls reunite with parents and more images from around the world.

One of the kidnapped girls celebrates with family members during a church service held in Abuja, Nigeria, on Oct. 16, 2016.

The families came from the remote northeastern town of Chibok, where nearly 300 girls were kidnapped on April 2014 in a mass abduction that shocked the world. Dozens of schoolgirls escaped in the first few hours but after last week's release, 197 remain captive.
