A Catholic woman kneels as she prays in a small chapel in the village of Bai Gu Tun, located on the outkirts of the city of Tianjin, around 70 km (43 miles) south-east of Beijing July 17, 2012. Chinese Catholics number between 8-12 million, and are divided between a state-sanctioned church that has installed bishops without Vatican approval and an "underground" wing long wary of associating with the Communist Party-run church. China and the Vatican broke off formal diplomatic relations shortly after the Chinese Communists took power in 1949. Pope Benedict has, however, encouraged the two sides of the divided Chinese church to reconcile. However just last week, according to a Catholic online news service, a priest who quit China's state-sanctioned Catholic Church and was ordained auxiliary bishop of Shanghai with the approval of the pope, was taken away by officials after the ceremony and has not been heard from since.

Chief Executive of G4S Nick Buckles is seen through a tinted car window as he leaves the Houses of Parliament in London July 17, 2012. Buckles admitted his management of the London Olympics staffing scandal had embarrassed the British government and left the world's biggest security firm's reputation in tatters as he fought to save his job on Tuesday. G4S has been at the centre of a political firestorm, and has lost about 650 million pounds ($1 billion) in market value, since it announced it could not provide the promised 10,400 Olympic security guards just two weeks before the Games.
