    I really can't be bothered deleting any more postage stamp sized pictures that add nothing to the story, but if you (Mr Lick) would refrain further from devaluing this thread then I won't dump it.

    *Edit:
    These last images are great, but many previous posts are just a waste.

    Ten soldiers died and 15 were wounded in the attack which took place at the Mehran naval aviation base on 22 May.

    It took the security forces some 17 hours to secure the base.

    A naval official said the three officers were facing trial because they held positions of responsibility, not because of a connection to the attack.

    The accused are Cmdr Raja Tahir, base commander at the time of the attack, and two officials beneath him, at the rank of captain and commander, according to naval sources quoted by several news agencies.
    Posts like this are what I'm getting at.

    After trawling through pages of shitty posts with a non-event of a photo I was just about to dump the entire thread.

    If I see another string of posts like this, I will.

    "Raelynn Hillhouse, an American security analyst, claims his whereabouts were finally revealed when a Pakistani intelligence officer came forward to claim the $25m (15 million) bounty on the al-Qaeda leader's head. Her version, based on evidence from sources in what she calls the "intelligence community", contradicts the official account that bin Laden was tracked down through his trusted courier.
    Pakistani officials have always denied that bin Laden was sheltered or that Islamabad had any knowledge of the secret mission that killed him.
    But Dr Hillhouse, who is known for her links to private military contractors that work extensively with the CIA, says Pakistan gave permission for a covert mission which would then be covered up by claiming bin Laden had been killed in a drone strike.
    "The [Inter-Services Intelligence] officer came forward to claim the substantial reward and to broker US citizenship for his family," she writes on her intelligence blog, The Spy Who Billed Me.

    Family members hold onto a man, crying as the body of his dead brother, a policeman, is brought to the Lady Reading Hospital after an explosion in Peshawar, Pakistan, on August 11. Four policemen and one child were killed and 14 people wounded when a remote-controlled bomb concealed in a push-cart exploded, police said. An hour later and yards from the initial bombing, a woman covered in a head-to-foot burqa carried out a suicide bombing, killing herself and another woman, police said.



    A boy who survived the initial bomb attack is brought to the Lady Reading hospital in Peshawar on August 11.

    This picture of the nearby galaxy NGC 3521 was taken using the FORS1 instrument on the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile. The large spiral galaxy lies in the constellation of Leo and is only 35 million light-years distant. This picture was created from exposures taken through three different filters that passed blue light, yellow/green light and near-infrared light. These are shown in this picture as blue, green and red, respectively.
