Riots broke out in the North London borough of Tottenham this weekend after a man, Mark Duggan, was shot dead by armed police in an altercation. Protesters marched on the local police station to demand justice before throwing stones and petrol bombs at police and buildings. Last night the rioting spread to other boroughs in London in what the police call copy cat behaviour. We’ve added more images to this gallery. I think we can safely say this is not about the shooting of Mark Duggan anymore, but all about stealing TVs, shoes, clothing and anything else these criminals can get their hands on. Smoke from a fire rises above houses and police officers in Tottenham, north London August 7, 2011. Crowds attacked riot police and set two squad cars alight in north London on Saturday following a protest at the fatal shooting of a man by armed officers earlier in the week.

Rioters throwing petrol bombs battled police in a economically deprived district of London overnight, setting patrol cars, buildings and a double-decker bus on fire in some of the worst disorder seen in the capital for recent years. Police officers detain a man in Enfield, north London August 7, 2011. Police said they were called to Enfield, a few miles north of Tottenham, where youths had smashed two shop windows and damaged a police car.

A winter storm that hit the southern United States yesterday all but paralyzed the city of Atlanta, stranding people in cars at stores and children at their schools. The storm only brought a few inches across the region but with the ice caused major problems in America's southern region. Traffic is snarled along the I-285 perimeter north of the metro area after a winter snow storm on Jan. 29 in Atlanta. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said early Wednesday that the National Guard was sending military Humvees onto Atlanta's snarled freeway system in an attempt to move stranded school buses and get food and water to people. Georgia State Patrol troopers headed to schools where children were hunkered down early Wednesday after spending the night there, and transportation crews continued to treat roads and bring gas to motorists, Deal said.

Day 3 of Documerica Week on In Focus -- a new photo essay each day, featuring regions of the U.S. covered by the photographers of the Documerica Project in the early 1970s. Today's subject is Chicago's African-American community, primarily the South Side, documented by photographer John H. White, who went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Photojournalism in 1982. White landed a job with the Chicago Sun Times in 1978, and continued to work there until May of 2013, when the newspaper laid off its entire photojournalism department. His portraits of everyday life stand the test of time, inviting the viewer to travel back a few decades, and see just how we lived. The Documerica Project was put together by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1971, with a primary goal of documenting adverse effects of modern life on the environment, but photographers were also encouraged to record the daily life of ordinary people, capturing a broad snapshot of America. Stay tuned for part 4 of Documerica Week tomorrow, when we travel to the Lone Star State.

This impressive collection of pictures taken by Joshua Lambus, in Hawaii reveals the colourful creatures that are just a few centimetres in size. They are found in water more than 7,000ft deep, off the coast of Kailua-Kona. Among the 'colour x-ray' style images are pictures of rare squids, jellyfish and shrimp. Joshua Lambus said: "The colours they produce are the naturally reflected colours of their pigmentation." Joshua became a minor celebrity after he photographed a tiny octopus, called a tremoctopus - only the second time the animal had been captured on camera. Joshua Lambus has now been on more than 400 'blackwater' dives. He adds that: "The lack of light and reference is the closest thing I could imagine to being in space."

Europride is an annual parade of LGBT people (from English Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders - an acronym referring to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people), organized on the occasion of Christopher Street Day (CSD). Ma ona upamietniac zamieszki na tle dyskryminacji mniejszosci seksualnych, które wybuchly w 1969 roku w Nowym Jorku. It is to commemorate the riots of discrimination against sexual minorities, which erupted in 1969 in New York. Od 1991 oku European Pride Organizer's Association przyznaje jednemu z miast tytul “Europride”. Since 1991, eye of the European Pride Organizer's Association confers the title of one of the cities' Europride. Demonstracja w tym miescie jest odpowiednio wieksza, co w zamysle organizatorów ma nadac wydarzeniu wiekszy rozmach, a tym samym przyciagnac uwage opinii publicznej na sprawy LGBT. The demonstration in this city is more appropriate as the intention of the event is to give greater momentum, and thus attract the attention of public opinion on LGBT issues.
