RANVILLE, FRANCE - JUNE 05: Ray Shuck, 95, who was a paratrooper on D-Day and was later shot in the head by a German sniper salutes a memorial cross that commemorates his fallen comrades in the cemetery in Ranville helped by Sgt Kirk Blakemore and D-Day Revisited volunteer Kate Rousseau in Normandy on June 5, 2018 in Ranville, France. Ray Shuck parachuted into Ranville on the 6th June but was wounded on D-Day +2 and was given the last rites in the nearby church. Tomorrow marks the 74th anniversary of the D-Day approaches, and of the handful of surviving Normandy Veterans have made their way to France to commemorate the landings, which saw 156,000 troops from the allied countries including the United Kingdom, the United States and France join forces to launch an audacious attack on the beaches of Normandy which helped lead to the eventual defeat of Nazi Germany. For the veterans travelling with groups such as the charity D-Day Revisited - which has taken the largest number of British veteran to this year's commemorations, the anniversary will have extra poignance, as next year, the 75th anniversary, will be the charities final organised visit.

DHAKA, BANGLADESH - JUNE 4: A man walks through rain and dye past a dying factory in Shyampur, whose waste is dumped into the Buriganga river, on June 4, 2018 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Bangladesh has been reportedly ranked 10th out of the top 20 plastic polluter in the world with the Buriganga river known as one of the most polluted rivers in the country due to rampant dumping of industrial and human waste. Like many developing countries, Bangladesh lacks the infrastructure to effectively manage their waste which causes problems in keeping the waters safe for human and aquatic lives while dozens of tanneries on the banks of the river contribute industrial waste into the ground water. As June 5 was marked by the United Nations as World Environment Day, Buriganga symbolizes the general state of many rivers in Bangladesh, with the growing levels of pollutants and plastic waste consuming up all oxygen in the river and affecting our seafood while fishes consume bits of plastic which mimics their natural food sources and eventually lands on our dinner table.

President Donald Trump uninvited the Philadelphia Eagles from the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl victory this week. Reports suggested low attendance was the reason for the cancellation with reporting that "fewer than 10 players planned to attend" the event. The president hosted a "celebration of America" event instead and Eagles head coach Doug Pederson addressed the snub by saying, "our goal is 2018."

Other major headlines of the week included the suicides of fashion icon Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, the deadly explosion of Guatemala's Fuego volcano and Harvey Weinstein pleading not guilty to rape.
