The Week in Pictures: December 08 – December 15, 2015

Weekly news in pictures

There was no shortage of important news stories last week so lets take the time to take another look at some of the biggest from the last seven days 

The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP21, came to a climax last week with a pact reached by the 200 attending nations to come into effect in 2020 that seeks to limit global warming to less than 2 degrees before the end of the century. Despite not being as legally binding as some would have wished the first agreement of its sort in history has been greeted with enthusiasm by many world leaders including Barack Obama who called it “the best chance to save the one planet we have.”

Donald Trump, still leading the polls in the race to be the Republican nomination in the US Presidential race in 2016, earned the ire of all quarters last week by calling for a ban on all entrance to the United States for Muslims. Instantly condemned by both his opponents and fellow Republicans alike Hillary Clinton called it “reprehensible, prejudiced and divisive” whilst rival for the nomination Jeb Bush called Mr. Trump’s position “unhinged”.

Saudi Arabia finally allowed women to vote in elections last week holding the first to be open to both female voters and candidates. Despite being unable to meet male voters during their campaigns, the segregation of polling stations and numerous bureaucratic obstacles 900 women stood for election although few are expected to gain office with only 10% of votes cast by women. However Salma bint Hizab al-Oteibi was elected in Madrakah to the Mecca municipal council.

In sport Conor McGregor took just 13 seconds to knock out opponent Jose Aldo to take the featherweight title in Las Vegas at UFC 194. “Precision beats power, timing beats speed.” Said McGregor after the bout that ending Aldo’s 18 fight unbeaten run, will Conor be able to match it? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, but in the meantime lets take a moment to glance back over some of the big news stories we covered over the last seven days.

Meanwhile police are investigating the source of 100,000 Euro that was discovered floating down the Danube in Vienna last week. A boy found the money and retrieved the mainly 100 and 500 Euro denominations from the water, and with Austrian law allowing him to keep 10% immediately and claim the full amount after a year if the rightful owner does not come forward he’s a lucky chap. Whilst the money’s origin is not yet known police have ruled out money laundering.
