Israeli border policemen detain a member of media during clashes at protest in Jerusalem's Old City
Israeli border policemen detain a member of media during clashes at protest against a parade by Israelis marking Jerusalem Day, at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem's Old City May 28, 2014. Nine Palestinians were detained on suspicion of throwing stones at policemen and participants of the parade, an Israeli police spokesman said on Wednesday. Jerusalem Day marks the anniversary of Israel's capture of the Eastern part of the city during the 1967 Middle East War. In 1980, Israel's parliament passed a law declaring united Jerusalem as the national capital, a move never recognised internationally. REUTERS/Ammar Awad

A GoalControl watch reads "goal" as a football rolls fully behind the goal line during a demonstration in the western German city of Aachen May 28, 2014. German firm GoalControl has been appointed by FIFA as the official provider for the goal-line technology (GLT) at the upcoming 2014 soccer World Cup in Brazil. GoalControl uses 14 high-speed cameras around the pitch as part of its GoalControl-4D system, which are fixed in elevated positions around each goalmouth. The ball's position is continuously captured in three dimensions - X, Y and Z coordinates. All the cameras are linked to a computer processing system, which filters out players, the referee and any other objects. Only the ball remains, with its position precise to a few millimetres in the coordinate system of the pitch, according to the GoalControl website. The watch will be worn by referees and will display the word "goal" together with a vibration alert within one second, if the ball has fully crossed the goal line. REUTERS/Wolfgang Rattay

The train transports well-qualified medical personnel and equipment to assist about 200 patients a day and has been travelling annually from the main regional centre Krasnoyarsk to distant settlements of Krasnoyarsk and Khakassia Regions, where hospitals and clinics are scarce, for the last seven years. The train also has a carriage which operates as a mobile Orthodox church. The train was named after an outstanding Russian surgeon, an Orthodox bishop and GULAG prisoner Valentin Voino-Yasenetsky.
