    Forensic experts investigate the scene of an explosion on March 14, 2016 the day after a suicide car bomb ripped through a busy square in central Ankara killing at least 34 people and wounding 125, officials said, the latest in a spate of deadly attacks to hit Turkey. The explosion at 6:45 pm (1645 GMT) struck a bus stop near Kizilay square, a bustling commercial area and local transport hub, reducing buses to charred husks and damaging nearby shops. Officials said the blast was caused by a vehicle packed with explosives, which the interior minister said was driven by one or two attackers who had deliberately targeted the bus stop. / AFP / ADEM ALTAN (Photo credit should read ADEM ALTAN/AFP/Getty Images)

  • This amazing time-lapse picture shows how a tiny piece of paper not much bigger than a postage stamp can stop fruit from going off.

    The filter, discreetly placed in the pack of strawberries on the left, absorbs the ripening gas emitted by the fruit and keeps it fresher for longer.

    The pioneering new technology developed by British company It’s Fresh! is reducing food waste for consumers and helping leading supermarkets save millions.

    The time-lapse shows how the strawberries on the right in the picture start to go mouldy after three days in a fridge.

    But the punnet containing the It’s Fresh! filter remain unmarked and looking newly picked.

    The filters, which are now being used by all the main supermarket chains, work in an entirely natural way and do not involve any chemicals.

    Simon Lee, the founder of It’s Fresh! said: “Our discrete It's Fresh! filters purify the air around perishable produce, from field to fork; helping our customers deliver fruit that is fresher for longer, thereby significantly increasing sales and slashing unnecessary waste - right into the consumer's home.”

    TOPSHOT - A picture taken on March 3, 2016 shows Migingo Island on Lake Victoria. Ownership of the island is subject to a dispute between Kenya and Uganda. Since 1926, territorial ownership of the island has been consistently shown on maps and on official documents as Kenyan. The dispute centres on the lucrative fishing rights in the waters around the island, mostly for valuable Nile perch. Ugandan waters come within 510 metres of the island. The tiny island crowded with housing shacks has a population of between 100 and 200 people. Kenyan voter registration has now resumed on the island just two days after Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) clerks were arrested by Ugandan security officials. / AFP / CARL DE SOUZA (Photo credit should read CARL DE SOUZA/AFP/Getty Images)
