AP PHOTOS: Editor selections from Asia

A dreamy fashion show in Hong Kong, a rally against radicalism in Jakarta and the discovery of a new genus of tree frogs in India were all captured in images from around Asia last week.

Students in Jakarta attended an interfaith rally against radicalism, terrorism and drug abuse several days after an attack by Muslim militants in the heart of Indonesia's capital.

Paramilitary forces sporting colorful headgear marched during India's annual celebration of Republic Day, which included displays of missiles and other military hardware.

In many countries, an economy growing at 6.9 percent would be considered robust, but for China its growth last year was the slowest rate in 25 years.

Scientists in India, meanwhile, say they have discovered a new genus of tree frogs thought to have been extinct for over a century.

Some 60 people aboard a tourist boat were rescued in waters off the coast of New Zealand after their ship caught fire.

Snow blanketed Tokyo, snarling flights and traffic, while spectators took in action as the sun set over the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne.
