June 21, 2011. Eight-year-old Raby waits in Wau, a city in southern Sudan, at a transit center that welcomes refugees. Combatants in northern and southern Sudan have been fighting over whether the South can secede and form its own nation. The conflict has displaced more than a million people.

This week: a refugee southern Sudan in the run-up to the elections, the World Trade Center steel program; protests on both sides in Libya; Saturn’s icy moon; China’s floods; a Greek Air Force plane under the sea; riots in Senegal; US troops in Afghanistan on the day President Obama orders 33,000 home by next summer.
