Dr Madeleine Korbel Albright, 84, the first female US Secretary of State (1997-2001), died from cancer in Washington, DC. She was born on 15 May 1937 as Marie Jana Korbelova in Prague, Czechoslovakia. The German occupation of her native country by Adolf Hitler's troops forced the family of five, consisting of her parents and two younger siblings, Katherine and John, into exile. They moved to Britain in May 1939. In their London house, they used a large metal table to shelter themselves from the German air raids during the Blitz.

Mary Magdalene holding a missile has become a symbol of the Ukrainian resistance. Known as St Javelin of Ukraine on social media, she had a blue halo marked with the golden trident coat-of-arms of Ukraine according to the Ukrainian flag colours, and her green robes are vaguely reminiscent of military dress.

St Javelin got her name because of holding an FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank missile launcher that is fitted with a high-explosive anti-tank warhead and has a range of 2,000 metres. The US-made, shoulder-fired weapon is considered pivotal to the defence of Ukraine against Russia's ongoing invasion.
