Crossword: What in the world, this week

Good morning, and welcome to the second edition of WorldViews news crossword puzzle. Some of you complained last week about how difficult the inaugural puzzle was, so I've tried to make this one easier.

Some of you were curious how the scoring system on this puzzle works. Here's how:

You get 10 points for each correct word completed. Revealing letters or words as hints will cost you points. If you reveal a letter, you lose a point, but can still get the 10 points if you get the word right. You get no points for a word if you reveal it entirely.

The target time to complete this puzzle is 15 minutes. When you complete the puzzle, you'll get a bonus of 15 points for every full minute under the target. There is no penalty for going over the time limit.

So, how much do you really know about events around the world this week? Try this week's multimedia crossword puzzle.
