Many Iraq vets struggle with the loss of their comradesAs the United Nations struggles to stop attacks in Darfur and Israel struggles with Gaza and the West Bank, Britain is also struggling with the vent of angry Muslims, questions of faith-based politics and inquiries into the occupation of Iraq.

Meanwhile, England is preparing for the funeral of the two children who died from carbon monoxide poisoning at their hotel while on a family holiday in Corfu, which will be held on Tuesday.

Greek officials said on Friday that six people in Corfu had been charged with manslaughter over the deaths.

Still in the UK, hunters and hospitals are becoming inventive to cope with their struggles, while scientists and politicians alike struggle with a report that says there will be virtually nothing left to fish from the seas by the middle of the century if current trends continue.

Meanwhile human right supporters are struggling with the fact that repressive regimes are garnering stronger ties with each other, and the Turkish PM struggles to understand why the European Union is placing new obstacles on Turkey's bid to enter the bloc.

And amid America voting in mid-elections, African-Americans are struggling to make their mark, a US pastor struggles to keep his alleged homosexual and drug-related antics from denting the American conservative line, and Iraq haunts the Republicans as the trauma of the war is once again in the media's spotlight.
