There was no shortage of big news stories hitting the headlines last week so lets take a look back at some of the more important of the last seven days

A meeting of the Federation of Socialist Youth Associations in the Turkish town of Suruc was attacked by a suicide bomber as they discussed how to assist in the reconstruction of the Syrian town of Kobane. Dozens of the young attendees at the Amara Culture Centre were killed and over 100 injured. In response the Turkish air force began bombing IS and Kurdish militant targets in Syria as well as lifting the ban on its bases being used by US and allied air forces in their war against Islamic State.

The massive Japanese conglomerate Toshiba was rocked last week after an independent review of their accounts revealed the company, that produces everything from computers to nuclear power stations, had overstated their operating profits by in excess of 1.2 billion dollars. This was done with the full knowledge of senior management and, after criticism from Japanese finance minister Taro Aso, Hisao Tanaka, chief executive of the company, and seven other officials immediately resigned from Toshiba.

Last week saw Barack Obama visit Kenya, where his father hails from, spending time with the country’s president Mr. Kenyatta and paying his respects at the scene of the 1998 Nairobi embassy bombing that killed 224 people and injured more than 4,000. The two Presidents announced they stood united on terrorism but a joint press conference highlighted there were still key differences in attitude, especially on the topic of gay rights and the subject of women’s issues within Kenya itself.

In sport after a grueling 21 stages, a mammoth 3,360.3 kilometers and just shy of 82 hours of extremely hard riding Chris Froome won the Tour de France in Paris on Sunday last week, riding in with the rest of Team Sky to take another yellow jersey as well as the polkadots for being King of the Mountains. What will he be out to win next? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out but in the meantime lets take a look back over some of the major stories we covered over the last seven days.

Meanwhile the typically rather dour world of the British Houses of Parliament were rocked last week when Lord Sewel, Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords, the upper chamber, was forced to resign from his post after a British tabloid released video of him snorting cocaine from off the ample chest of a prostitute. The footage also prompted his resignation from the chairmanship of the Lord’s privileges and conduct committee, the very team that enforces standards in the Lords, standards he didn’t meet.
