The week in pictures: July 14 – July 21, 2015
Jul 21, 2015
There was no shortage of massive news events last week so we should probably look back over some of the biggest from the last seven days
Her Majesty The Queen was left embarrassed last week after the Sun newspaper (often described as a mouthpiece for the brain-dead) published footage clearly showing her doing a Nazi salute in the grounds of Balmoral Castle. Shot in the 1930s the film shows her uncle, who was later Edward VIII, encouraging her to salute the camera alongside her mother. The release of the film has triggered calls for the Palace to release full details of the relationship between the Royal Family and Third Reich.
Last week saw the one year anniversary of the MH17 tragedy marked by services around the world. The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was shot down over Ukraine during the battle for Shakhtarsk Raion by a BUK surface-to-air missile, a common piece of military hardware in the region. Neither side in the conflict have admitted responsibility and blame each other for the incident despite most Intelligence agencies, beyond that of Russia, being all but certain it was fired by Russian-backed separatists.
Last week saw a pair of gun attacks perpetrated by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, the first against a military recruitment office in Chattanooga, then against a Navy & Marine Reserve Center nearby. Four marines and a naval petty officer were killed in the attacks that saw numerous others wounded and the 24 year old gunman also killed. Investigations continued throughout the week into the motivations behind the attacks with links to radical Islam ever more likely as further evidence emerged.
In sport Australia spanked a disastrously bad England team in the second test at Lords last week winning by 405 runs after the home side were dismissed for a paltry 103. This levels the Ashes at one game apiece, but who’ll take home the famous trophy when the series is all over? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, but in the meantime (whilst the England selectors tear their hair out) lets take a look back at some of the big stories we covered from around the world in the last seven days.

Meanwhile in the pacific the Easter Island Statue Project has revealed the results of three years excavations around two of the islands many eerie statue ‘heads’ that has uncovered in-scale bodies beneath the visible facial features. Nearly 7m tall and covered with intricate carvings the bodies were supposedly buried during a volcanic eruption although the purpose behind these mysterious “Moai” is still unknown. The project hopes to inventory all the statues on the island despite the time this will take.
