The Holy Week in Review

 

Holy Week proved to be rife with tension and conflict, unabated by All Fool’s Day.

Russia expelled diplomats from 23 countries, in kind and in equal measure for each of their own expelled from other countries, then broadcast their ‘Satan 2’ missile tests.

Demonstrations by Palestinians in Gaza were met with military violence; EU called for independent investigation into the disproportionate force by the Israeli military.

Meanwhile The Pope’s Easter message Urbi et Orbi urged to end the Syria carnage, for healing in South Sudan and The Congo, for dialogues in the Korean peninsula.

Here is the review of the week in the arts.
