Weekly news in pictures

There were some huge news stories that broke last week so lets quickly review some of the most important to his the headlines.

A terrorist attack on the luxury Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako, capital of Mali, left at least 19 dead last week. The dead included an American, an Israeli, three Chinese, six Russians, two Belgians and witnesses report numerous members of the hotel’s security staff were killed when the dozen or so attackers struck using a car featuring diplomatic plates. Both Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and al-Murabitoun claimed responsibility for the attack although authorities couldn’t confirm either claim.

Last week Anastasia Lin, the winner of Miss World Canada claimed she had been shut out of the finals of the Miss World contest by the hosts China for her outspoken stance on their record of human rights abuses and her defense of the Falun Gong who are deemed an illegal cult by the Chinese communist party. Without an official letter of invitation, which other finalists received in late October, she is unable to apply for the necessary visa. Miss World Canada said it would not provide a replacement.

A massive manhunt continued across Belgium last week as authorities sought the armed-and-dangerous Salah Abdeslam amidst intelligence reports that indicated an imminent threat of attack. Brussels, the capital, remained under lockdown for several days with residents told to avoid crowds, the city’s metro closed down and soldiers patrolling the streets. Many European capitals remain on a high state of alert following the attacks perpetrated in Paris on Friday the 13th that left 130 dead and hundreds injured.

In sport Chelsea took an hour to get the only goal scored in their Premier League fixture with Norwich giving them a much needed win in a week that saw Jose Mourinho claim that reaching the top of the table was “Mission Impossible” and that “Maybe Tom Cruise can do it, but it’s complicated.” Will the diminutive Hollywood star give up his career to manage the London side? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, but in the meantime he’s a look at some of the big stories we covered last week.

Meanwhile an audience member on the long running BBC television show Question Time asked why the media continued to associate mainstream Islam with the militant terrorists in ISIS by calling them Islamic State (given they’re neither Islamic nor a state) saying “If I call myself a zebra do you them refer to me as a zebra?” Many experts encourage the use of the term Daesh instead a pronunciation of the acronym that also sounds uncannily like “a bigot who imposes his views on others” instead.
