There was a plethora of breaking news stories last week so let’s look back at some of the biggest that made the headlines over the last seven days

Japan commemorated the dropping of the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6th 1945. Seventy years after the 8:15am detonation, that had equaled some 12,000 tons of TNT and killed 70,000 people instantly with another 70,000 dying later of their injuries or illnesses, the city’s bells tolled and tens of thousands gathered with the country’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, in the Peace Memorial Park and observed a moment of silence for the dead.

Fox News hosted the first televised Republican debate drawing together numerous candidates including the ever entertaining Donald Trump whose bombastic personality dominated proceedings. During the debate Trump was question by Megyn Kelly on his attitude to women, an exchange he later described as being “nasty” saying “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her whatever.” In the ensuing controversy he said only a “sick person” would that about menstruation.

The 100mph winds of Typhoon Soudelor caused widespread damage across both Taiwan and then the Chinese province of Fujian last week as the massive storm system wreaked havoc across massive swathes of the region. Despite the Chinese having ample warning and placing 7,000 personnel on standby and evacuating some 163,000 people (even ordering 32,000 vessels back to port) there were still hundreds of injuries, six deaths and millions of households were left without electricity or running water.

In sport MotoGP rider Marc Marquez took a well earned victory at the Indianapolis Grand Prix taking the lead three laps before the end and stayed there till the checkered flag. This second successive victory for the Spaniard lifts him to third in the title race behind Jorge Lorenzo and current championship leader Valentino Rossi. With 8 events left in the season can Marquez overhaul his rivals? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, but in the meantime here are some of the big news stories from last week.

Meanwhile Jon Stewart, long time host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” left after 16 years in an emotional farewell before young Trevor Noah takes the reins of the flagship satire show. Joined by former colleagues and lampooned by political friends and foes alike, Mr. Stewart took advantage of his last spell of duty behind the famous desk to warn America of “blatant mendacity” saying that “Whenever something’s been titled ‘Freedom’ ‘Family’ ‘Fairness’ ‘Health’ ‘America’, take a good long sniff.” The question is, what will Stewart do next?
