With no end of news breaking around the world last week we take a moment to revisit some of the biggest stories of the week

In a surprise move the Chinese central bank made a “one-off depreciation” in the value of the Yuan, last week, dropping it by 1.9% after disappointing export results. With a fall of 8.3% in July and a 5.4% in the producer price index the move is seen as a way to boost exports. Now valued at 6.2298 Yuan to $1 up from 6.1162 earlier in the week, this management of the currencies value is seen as some as a step towards a market driven value for the Yuan.

A series of dramatic explosions in Tianjin killed 112 people on Wednesday at a chemical storage facility. The explosions also injured another 700 with 95 people still unaccounted for. With what is described as “several hundred” tons of Sodium Cyanide on site there has been a wide evacuation. Victims and recovery team members were have been visited by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and investigations continue into the disaster’s cause.

The Cotopaxi volcano in Ecuador threatened to erupt last week prompting the government to declare a nationwide state of emergency that suspends some constitutional rights to prevent the spread of panic. The 19,350 foot high volcano sits some 50km south of the capital Quito, home to some 2.2 million people, and any large eruption could melt glaciers causing massive flooding and dangerous mudslides across the effected region.

In sport Swiss teenager Belinda Bencic beat world number one Serena Williams to reach the final of the Rogers Cup which she then went on to win against Romania’s Simona Halep who had to retire hurt in the third set.
