Debris lays strewn due to heavy rain dumped by Typhoon Tembin in southern Taiwan on August 25. Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau warned that Tembin could return early next week after triggering the worst downpour in over a century on the island's southernmost tip.

Libyan Salafi Muslims use a bulldozer to raze a Sufi mosque in central Tripoli on August 25. Attackers bulldozed the mosque containing Sufi Muslim graves in the centre of Tripoli in broad daylight on Saturday, in what appeared to be Libya's most blatant sectarian attack since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi.

Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik was jailed on August 24 for 21 years when judges declared him sane enough to answer for the murder of 77 people last year. Although the maximum sentence in Norway is 21 years, prisoners can be held for longer if they continue to pose a danger.

Thousands of Ethiopians descended on the centre of the capital Addis Ababa on August 22 to mourn the death of Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, their firm-handed ruler of more than two decades, whose body was flown home after his death in a Brussels hospital at age 57.

This image from a citizen journalist in Syria, provided by Shaam News Network SNN, taken on August 26, purports to show people killed by shabiha, pro-government militiamen, being buried in a mass grave in Daraya. Reports of the death toll range widely from more than 300 to as many as 600.

Sierra Leone's government has described the current cholera outbreak in the West African state as a "national emergency". At the height of the wet season, over-populated areas with poor water and sanitation are exacerbating the spread of the disease. Some 170 deaths have been reported since the start of the year.

Relatives and family members of miners killed during clashes at Lonmin's Marikana platinum mine are comforted ahead of a memorial service. Labour unrest in South Africa's platinum belt spread on August 22, raising concerns that anger over low wages and poor living conditions could generate fresh violence after 34 striking miners were shot dead by police last week.
