June 5, 2011. Demonstrators, seen from a Druze village, flee Israeli-army tear gas as they cut through barbed wire on the Israel-Syria border, aiming for the occupied Golan Heights. Inspired by the Arab Spring, Palestinians have massed in mostly peaceful protests. This time, Israeli troops opened fire, killing 14 demonstrators.

This Week: the Puyehue Volcano erupts in Chile, Syrian demonstrators are killed by Israeli troops in the Golan Heights; the Iranian women’s soccer team banned from the 2012 Olympics; Anti-government protesters in Yemen celebrate President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s departure to Saudi Arabia; E.coli outbreak in Germany, Anthony Weiner’s sex scandal; and “Teddy Bear Hospital.”
