Good morning, and welcome to this week's WorldViews news crossword puzzle. It's been a week full of news from around the world, and I'm sure you will have no problem beating the clock on this edition of the puzzle.
For first-timers, here's a quick rundown of how scoring works:
The clock starts when you click the "START" button. The target time to complete this puzzle is 15 minutes. 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. When you complete the puzzle, you'll get a bonus of 15 points for every full minute under the target.
So, how religiously have you been following world news this week? Test yourself.
