51m Barcelona unites for opening game of the football season
The Guardian
Players wear black armbands in memory of the victims of attacks in Catalonia to chorus of ‘we are not afraid’ from the crowds First came the stillness of mourning, then a defiant roar of “We are not afraid” as tens of thousands of Barcelona football fans started the new La Liga season by paying their respects to the victims of Thursday’s terrorist attacks. With emotions still raw in the Catalan capital following the car attacks that killed 13 people on Las Ramblas boulevard and another person in the town of Cambrils, the phrase “only a game” had rarely felt more appropriate ahead of the kick-off against Real Betis, which Barcelona won 2-0.

Bleached by the sun and set against the brown, sandy soil that’s peppered with sagebrush and mesquite, they almost glow white. Once you start looking it seems they’re everywhere. Mostly it’ll be a rabbit’s skull or the hip bone of a small mammal. Sometimes, though, they’ll belong to a human. On 22 April, there were ribs, a shoulder blade, a clavicle, a piece of vertebrae and a jawbone. There was also a pair of dark-coloured trousers, size 9 Adidas trainers and a yellow wallet with a Tasmanian Devil cartoon on the flap. Inside was a photocopy of an ID card which read: Republica De Honduras. Filadelfo Martinez Gomez. Date of birth: 8 August, 1992.

La Soledad review – quietly insightful profile of present-day Venezuela15h La Soledad review – quietly insightful profile of present-day Venezuela
The Guardian
The country’s economic crisis gives an edge to this hybrid documentary This Venezuelan debut is the kind of production you often hear disparagingly described as a “small film”, but a restricted canvas can make for maximum intimacy. It is a quietly compelling item that appears to be part documentary, part realist fiction, with a faint edge of dream-like ghostliness. La Soledad, meaning “solitude”, is the name of a rambling house in Caracas – once magnificent, now dilapidated – formerly lived in by the family of director Jorge Thielen Armand. It is now inhabited by a working-class family – tenacious José, his wife, young daughter and infirm grandmother – but they may soon have to leave because the owners intend to sell the place. Everyone, poor and relatively wealthy, is affected by Venezuela’s economic crisis, which shows its effects in food queues, empty supermarket shelves and an atmosphere of danger; one of José’s friends advises him to turn his hand to kidnapping as the only occupation that pays.

By charging visitors to enter its crumbling walls, the medieval town of Civita di Bagnoregio has turned the threat of destruction to its advantageAs leaders of some of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations ponder recent anti-tourism protests, they should perhaps take inspiration from the mayor of Civita di Bagnoregio, a hamlet perched on a plateau of volcanic rock surrounded by steep ravines in Italy’s Lazio region.

The Guardian
A row over the dual citizenship of Barnaby Joyce, Australia’s deputy prime minister, has brought simmering tensions to the surface When Australia and New Zealand fight, rarely does it go beyond the gravity of two siblings scrapping. Conflict between the neighbours, separated by 1,300 miles across the Tasman Sea, typically takes the form of cheap jibes based on cultural stereotypes, or competing claims to the provenance of a racehorse, pop band or meringue-based dessert. Its only violent theatre is sporting clashes, such as yesterday’s first Bledisloe Cup Test. But that, for the most part, is as far is it goes. Over the last week, however, relations took an uncommon turn. The Australian prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, denounced a “conspiracy” between his domestic opponents and their New Zealand allies. A tirade from Australian foreign minister Julie Bishop against the New Zealand Labour party prompted one newspaper headline to wonder,

Younes Abouyaaqoub, understood to be the chief suspect in the attack on Las Ramblas, is thought to be a key member of a 12-strong jihadist cell responsible for the attacks in Barcelona and later in nearby Cambrils.

Oukabir was among five men shot dead as they launched their assault on tourists and locals in the coastal town west of Barcelona.
