July 2, 2011. In tornado-ravaged Joplin, Mo., residents light July 4 fireworks amid the ruins of their community. The May twister there—the deadliest U.S. tornado since 1947—killed 157 people.

This week: after the tornado in Missouri, a man’s escape from prison in a suitcase foiled, Somalian refugees, Cuba’s national aquarium, the running of the bulls, tangled parachutes, wild horse roundup during the Rapa Das Bestas in Spain, anti-government protestors in Yemen, and southern Sudan prepares for independence.
