Weekly news in pictures

There was no shortage of big news stories last week so we review some of the most important to hit the headlines over the last seven days

A Tunisian beach resort was turned into a bloodbath last week as a 23 year old ISIS sympathizer, Seifeddine Rezgui, opened fire with a machine gun on unarmed tourists. Holiday makers ran for their lives as Rezgui gunned down 39 and injured a further 36. Tunisia has already seen a similar soft-target attack on its soil this year with 22 mostly foreign tourists killed in a central Tunis museum in March. Rezgui was killed at the scene by police.

In the US the Supreme Court had a busy week ruling on the contentious issues of the Affordable Healthcare Act and Same-Sex marriage within days of each other. In a victory for the Obama White House the act popularly named “Obamacare” passed 6-3 but even that paled when compared with the huge celebration of the courts upholding of the constitutional right of the LGBT community to marriage by 5 to 4 at the annual pride marches that coincided with the ruling.

Alexis Tsipras, the Greek Prime Minister, responded to the deepening financial crisis in his country by calling for a referendum on the demands made upon the nation by its Eurozone creditors. This irked the creditors which resulted in a cutting off of the bailout funds the EU has provided over the last five years. This meant that banks would remain closed and ATM withdrawals would be limited to 60 Euros until the July 5th vote, the first of its kind since 1974 when the nation voted to remove the monarchy.

In sport Nelson Piquet Jr won the inaugural season of Formula E the single seat racing competition that pits cars powered only by electricity against each other. Despite a terrible qualification for the final race in London’s Battersea Park Piquet did just enough to take the championship. Will this herald a future of greener motorsport, you’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, but in the meantime lets look back at some of the stories we covered last week.

Meanwhile in the US two major broadcasters had moments of major stupidity as Fox News and CNN both broadcast pieces of silliness. Fox decided to air one of its anchors, a Martha MacCallum, asking if the Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage paved the way for trios of people to wed, which was nearly as ridiculous as CNN broadcasting pictures of what it said was an ISIS flag at the London Gay Pride march only to find out it actually depicted a selection of butt-plugs and dildos.
