Julian Assange

Australian Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, set off a storm for the US government this week.

His whistle-blower website accused US forces of covering up civilian deaths in Afghanistan.

Wikileaks published some 91,000 US military papers covering the Afghan conflict between 2004 and 2010.

Washington and Kabul say the leak has endangered national security and lives in Afghanistan.

The former hacker says the papers contain evidence of possible war crimes that must be investigated.

Uichiro Niwa

Uichiro Niwa, Japan's new Ambassador to China, took up his post in Beijing this week.

The 71-year-old former president of Itochu Corporation is the first Japanese ambassador to China to emerge from non-political circles.

Niwa is well-known for strong ties with China through his years in business.

His appointment has brought high expectations for new developments in Sino-Japanese relations.

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of a former US president and the current Secretary of State, married childhood friend and investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on Saturday.

The guest list has been cause for triumph and indignation.

What Chelsea wears and who attends the wedding has become the talk of the town.
