This week huge wildfires ravaged swathes of Spain, Cyprus and Turkey amid searing heat across Europe.

A gunman opened fire on two bars in Oslo, killing two and injuring dozens. Norweigan secret services are treating the attack as a terrorist incident, while concerned about the suspect's mental health. 

Afghanistan suffered a major earthquake, which claimed the lives of thousands.
