Spanish police officers detain a man after he tried to immolate himself in front of a Falla, a gigantic sculpted structure of cardboard and wood which humorously portrays relevant current events and personalities, caricaturing elephant-headed Hindu god Lord Ganesha in Valencia on March 19, 2013. The Fallas will be burned in the streets of Valencia today, as a tribute to St Joseph, patron saint of the carpenters' guild.
