Estonian slackliner Jaan Roose completed a 625 metre crossing between Rotterdam's two tallest buildings, 188 metres above the river Maas. Roose holds several world records, yet the high winds posed a great challenge for him on his 49 minute walk between The Rotterdam building and Zalmhaven tower.

  • The death of the Tigris: Iraq's mighty river is drying up | AFP

The country may be oil-rich but it is plagued by poverty after decades of war and by droughts and desertification.The Tigris, the lifeline connecting the storied cities of Mosul, Baghdad and Basra, has been choked by dams, most of them upstream in Turkey, and falling rainfall. An AFP video journalist travelled along the river's 1,500-kilometre (900-mile) course through Iraq, from the rugged Kurdish north to the Gulf in the south, to document the ecological disaster that is forcing people to change their ancient way of life.
