Bosten Marathon Bombings

It has been some very intense days here in Boston which I have covered for VG . Four people have been killed and over 170 has been wounded. In a dramatic chase last night, Dsjokhar Tsarnajev where captured alive. His brother where killed in the chase with the police. As Dsjokhar where carried away, the crowd cheered. Earlier in the day, 9000 police officers had searched around in Watertown for Dsjokhar. Around the house where he was captured, people gathered on Sunday to watch as the FBI searched the crime scene.

Naypyitaw – the capital with no people

Tha capital of Myanmar (Burma) where they have twenty lanes wide roads and enormous buildings to house the government and the military. Myanmar’s new capital was built from scratch just seven years ago. It was built in the middle of the country, far away from any major cities. It is believed to be to protect the capital from riots from the burmese people. It is not allowed for normal people to live there, just military and the government staff. Myanmar is now opening up after over 50 years of a brutal military regime. Still, Naypyitaw is a grim example of the gouvernment’s use of taxpayers money in a country where the population is extremely poor.

This series was shot during a four-week long visit in February. Se also this story from Myanmar.
