Barack Obama respected Afghanistan Helicopter crash victims, powerful image of riots in London, the pitiful scene of a hungry child in Africa and Chilean’s education reform are some of the most outstanding events reflected through impressive images during the previous seven days.
On Tuesday August 9, U.S. President Barack Obama traveled to Dover Air Force Base with the aim of attending the return of the 30 bodies of U.S. servicemen killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. It was the deadliest day in the history of the decade-long war. On that day, Obama’s motorcade left the White House at 11:32 a.m., and arrived at Ft. McNair at 11:45 a.m. After five minutes, four helicopters carrying the president, staff and reporters left and landed at Dover Air Force Base at 12:30 p.m. Obama met with families along with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Admiral William McRaven, who oversees the U.S. Special Operations forces.
