Weekly news in pictures

There was one big story after another breaking last week so lets take a moment to quickly review some of the most important.

The long-standing economic sanctions imposed on Iran by the US and EU were dropped last week as the deal arranged between the two sides to prevent Iranian development of nuclear weapons came into effect. The far-reaching agreement was welcomed by both sides with President Rouhani calling it a “turning point” for his country and also included a prisoner exchange that saw several sanction busting Iranians freed alongside a number of Americans including Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian.

Both Indonesia and Burkina Faso were the victims of terrorist attacks last week. Suspected Islamic State gunmen attacked a busy Starbucks in a commercial district of Jakarta killing at least eight, whilst in Ouagadougou a luxury hotel popular with foreign tourists was targeted along with several other businesses in an incident that was eventually ended by the intervention of French Special Forces. Al-Quaeda In The Islamic Maghreb claimed responsibility for the attack that killed 28 and injured 56.

Last week saw the tragic deaths of both Alan Rickman and David Bowie rock the entertainment world with both dying at the age of 69 and both from Cancer. Rickman stared in such movies as “Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves” and “Galaxy Quest” as well as playing Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies, whilst David Bowie had an influential career in music spanning several decades and was famed for hit songs including “Space Odyssey” and “Let’s Dance” as well as his 1970’s alter-ego Ziggy Stardust.

In sport Leicester City returned to the top of the Premier League after an uncharacteristic draw with Premier League whipping boys Aston Villa. Ozazaki opened the scoring for City just before the half hour only to be answered mid way through the second half by a deflected shot from Rudy Gestede. But just how long will Leicester hold on to the top spot? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, however in the meantime let’s look back at the major news stories that we covered last week.

Meanwhile in efforts to return a stolen gold necklace to its rightful owner police were obliged for force feed a man suspected of stealing and swallowing it up to forty bananas. The large quantity of fruit was employed after an enema had failed to yield positive results despite an X-ray showing the man in possession of the jewelery. Surgery was rejected for being too expensive so over the course of a day the man was given fruit till the necklace returned. The man was charged and appeared in court for theft.
