Jul 28, 2015
With no end of important news stories in the last seven days perhaps we should take a moment to glance over some of the biggest from last week
The Turkish air force began bombing IS and Kurdish militant targets within Syria last week after a suicide bomber struck the Amara Culture Centre in Suruc on the border with Syria. The centre was hosting over 300 activists from the Federation of Socialist Youth Associations to talk about reconstructing nearby Syrian town Kobane. Dozens of the young attendees were killed with over a hundred other casualties. In response Turkey also lifted the ban on the use of its bases in the war on IS.
Japanese finance minister Taro Aso reacted angrily to an independent report that revealed the massive conglomerate Toshiba, well known for its electronics goods but which also produces nuclear reactors, has knowingly overstated its operating profits by some 1.2 billion dollars over several years. His statement that it might damage international confidence in Japanese business caused the immediate resignation of chief executive Hisao Tanaka as well as seven other company officials.
Barack Hussain Obama visited Kenya last week, becoming the first sitting US president to do so, and amongst very tight and overt security paid his respects at the scene of the 1998 Nairobi embassy bombing. Kenya is the country of origin of Mr. Obama’s father and he praised the nation for its business and economic potential. President Kenyatta said his people stood united with the US on terrorism although a joint press conference highlighted differences on gay rights and women’s issues.
In sport American Zach Johnson won the 144th Open Championship at St. Andrews after a three way play off and a tournament seriously disrupted by extreme weather conditions. The 39 year old kept his nerve to stay ahead of Leishman and Oosthuizen, said this second major title win for him was “humbling”. Question is can he repeat this dazzling performance? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, but in the meantime lets review some of the major news stories we covered last week.

Meanwhile the Speaker of the House of Lords in the UK was forced to refer the conduct of the Deputy Speaker to the police after footage of him snorting cocaine from off the breasts of a sex worker was released by a British tabloid newspaper. Lord Sewel has resigned from that post and, quite rightly, also quit his position as Chairman of the Lord’s privileges and conduct committee, a body that is charged with overseeing the enforcement of standards amongst their lordships. Investigations continue.
