Gaza

Palestinian protesters run for cover from teargas fired by Israeli soldiers during clashes near the border with Israel in eastern Gaza. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, condemned Israel’s use of ‘excessive force’ against Palestinian demonstrators. The protests are held as part of the ‘Great March of Return’ movement for the right of Palestinians across the Middle East to return to homes they fled in the war surrounding the 1948 creation of Israel.

Indian Ocean

This sonar image released by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau shows a wreck on the bed of the Indian Ocean. A four-year search has failed to locate Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, but the hunt for the missing airliner might be close to solving two 19th-century mysteries: the locations of two sailing ships that vanished while carrying coal. Maritime historians published a shortlist of the possible identities of two shipwrecks found in the course of the initial 710,000 sq km search for the Boeing 777 lost in 2014 with 238 people aboard.

    I would like to see photos taken of the Korean War, Prisoner of War exchange, in September 1953, “Operation Big Switch”. I know there were thousands of photos taken, (I was there), but for some reason they have disappeared. Even the National Archives in College Park, MD, which has a few, cannot explain where all the others went. The late Al Chang, a US Army photographer, told me he himself took several hundred photos of returning US POW’s, plus hundreds of photos taken by the dozens of other photographers, military and civilian, who were there also. Is the US government holding something back from us? With all the scandals coming to light lately, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to learn they confiscated these photos also, for some obscure reason that only they know.
