Victorious Libyan rebels hold up giant sign thanking Obama

The sign calls them the Fantastic Four. So, *ahem*, Obama must be Mr. Fantastic--smart, good at contorting himself into weird ideological places. Susan Rice is the Invisible Woman--no one outside of Libya knows who she is. Cameron is the Human Torch, because he keeps causing flare-ups in the media with his clumsy handling of well everything. And Sarkozy is . . . The Thing? Whatever. "One large sign in the middle of the square in Benghazi features a picture of the “Fantastic 4” (from right to left): Obama, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice. The text on the sign reads: “God Bless You All. Thanks For All.”" PHOTOS: Libyans Applaud President Obama And International Allies With Large Thank You Sign | ThinkProgress

Photo Gallery: the Dadaab refugee camp

There are roughly half a million people now living in the Dadaab refugee camp on the border of Somalia and Kenya. The camp has been around since 2006 and has only grown since then. The people at Dadaab have no food, no money, and no water. It's pretty much the saddest place on Earth. Dadaab refugee camp - The Big Picture - Boston.com

Photo Gallery: Riots in London

The riots broke out after police roughed up a teenage girl during a protest over police killing Mark Duggan. Duggan was suspected of gun crimes and was shot by police. The police claim he fired upon them, but early reports suggest that the bullets extracted from the police car were fired from police service weapons. Of course, all this is conjecture right now. Rumors and unconfirmed gossip. Still, riots. Anarchy In The UK: Dozens Arrested As Riots Spread Across London | TPM Media
