    Todd Brownings 1932 movie entitled Freaks caused huge controversy when it was released as he used real life side show performers and "freaks" in the movie.It was banned for many years.

    The use of Thalidomide in the late 50s/early 60s caused severe birth defects in children whose mothers had taken it whilst pregnant.

    Rahela Akhter, a garment worker, tries to resist beating from the police during a protest in Dhaka. More than 80 Bangladeshis were wounded on Wednesday in clashes with police sparked by the arrest of three politicians, charged with offences ranging from murder to insulting Islam, and demands by textile workers for a pay rise.
