Weekly Impressive Images: August 1 – 7, 2011

Norwegian people paying tribute to victims of the Friday’s bombing and shooting, Afghan police fighting against suicide attackers, and the four-meter mermaid sculpture by Oliver Voss being displayed on Alster lake in Hamburg, are among the most memorable pictures of the week from August 1 to 7, 2011.
People stand on a memorial on the shore of Tyrifjorden lake overlooking Utoeya island, where anti-Islam extremist Anders Behring Breivik shot dead 68 young victims on July 22, 2011. He also caused the Oslo’s bomb blast, killing six others. The Friday’s bombing and shooting Anders Behring Breivik carried out are claimed Norway’s worst violation since World War II.
