July 29, 2011. A couple stands in front of a wall decorated with flowers in memory of the victims of the previous week's attacks, in Oslo. Norwegians united in mourning as the first funerals were held a week after anti-Islam zealot Anders Behring Breivik massacred 77 people in attacks that traumatized the nation.

This week: Norway mourns, Somali refugees, cosplay fans, Ramadan commences, Mt. Etna volcano erupts, suicide attacks in Afghanistan and the Cuban ballet.
