With so many big stories in the last seven days we take a look back at some of the biggest to hit the headlines around the world over the last week
A beach resort in Sousse, Tunisia, was the scene of another horrific Islamic State attack last week when 23 year old Seifeddine Rezgui used an assault rifle to gun down 39 unarmed tourists, injuring another 36 in the the process. High numbers of the dead and wounded were British. Regzui was shot dead in an exchange of fire with local police at the scene. This is the second such “soft-target” attack this year in Tunisia, 22 people were killed in a central Tunis museum in March.
In the United States saw a pair of landmark legal rulings come out of the Supreme Court last week. In the first objections to the Affordable Healthcare Act, more commonly referred to as Obamacare, were struck down 6-3, and whilst this was a massive victory for the Obama administration it was quickly eclipsed by the courts 5-4 decision that upheld the LGBT communities legal right to marriage under the constitution, a ruling that was celebrated widely at the annual Pride marches held just days later.
The financial crisis in Greece grew worse last week as the embattled Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, asked for a national referendum to be held on July 5th on the country’s creditors demands. The response from the creditors in the Eurozone was to instantly cut off the nation’s five year bailout, leaving banks shut until the vote and ATM withdrawals limited to just sixty Euros. This will be the first referendum in Greece since 1974 when the nation voted to end the monarchy.
In sport pressure mounted on double Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah last week to ditch coach Alberto Salazar after it was reported Kara Goucher, a former team mate of Farah’s expected even more harmful revelations were likely to come out concerning the alleged doping scandal. Will Farah distance himself from the coach as the scandal deepens? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, but in the meantime lets look at the big stories we covered last week.

Meanwhile the US media managed to make fools of itself with broadcasters from either end of the political spectrum broadcasting pieces of ridiculous nonsense. The first was Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum asking if the Supreme Court’s legalization of gay marriage meant that three people could now marry, but that was perhaps topped by CNN broadcasting pictures of what it said was an ISIS flag at the London Gay Pride March, the flag, they discovered later, actually showing dildos and butt-plugs.
