Weekly news in pictures

With so much going on in the world last week perhaps we should take a moment to glance back at some of the important news stories of the last seven days

Last week saw amazing results announced from the trials in Guinea of a experimental vaccine against the Ebola virus. In a trial encompassing over 4,000 people the drug was reported to be 100% effective amongst the 2,014 people who received it immediately and only 16 cases were found amongst those 2,380 who gained a delayed vaccination. Sponsored by the World Health Organization and both the Canadian and Norwegian governments the trial will now continue and expand within the west African country.

Investigations into the killing of Cecil the Lion continued last week with the government of Zimbabwe lodging a petition with the White House in the US to have Walter Palmer, the dentist that killed the animal just outside the Hwange national park in Zimbabwe, extradited back to the African nation to stand trial. The White House has a month to respond. For his part Walter Palmer did apologize, but only to his patients, and has said that he will assist the authorities in their investigation into the lion’s death.

After the withdrawal of Stockholm, Krakow and Oslo, the only two cities interested in hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics, China’s Beijing and Kazakhstan’s Almaty, battled it out for final selection last week with the Chinese capital coming away with the honor despite having already hosted a Summer games and not actually having any snow. The European cities withdrew citing a lack of public interest and the vast costs of hosting the event as being prohibitive. Despite human rights concerns China is seen as a safe pair of hands.

In sport a IAAF report leaked to the Sunday Times and ARD/WDR (a German broadcaster) shows that the extent of cheating in athletics is far wider than has been made public with dubious and suspicious test results that call into question nearly every winner and medalist in the top flight of athletics over the last decade and a half. Question is will the IAAF do anything about it or continue to cover up the cheating? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, but in the meantime here’s the headlines from the last seven days.

Meanwhile just outside the small east Texan town of Marietta a man had to be airlifted to hospital in the early hours of Thursday morning after suffering bullet wounds sustained when the rounds he himself had fired ricocheted back off the armadillo he was targeting. In the second such incident this year the man was hit in the jaw by one of his own rounds and had to have it wired shut, it is not known at this time if the Armadillo survived the encounter. Armadillos are seen as pests in many southern US states.
