"This is revolting. The Bible is not a prop. A church is not a photo op. Religion is not a political tool. God is not your plaything." That is how one priest reacted to this photo of US President Donald Trump holding a Bible aloft in front of a historic church in Washington DC. The image was taken after law enforcement dispersed a peaceful protest with tear gas and rubber bullets to clear the president's path to the church. A number of religious leaders have criticised the controversial photo-op, with the Episcopal Bishop of Washington saying Mr Trump had used the building "without permission" and that his message was “antithetical to the teachings of Jesus".

Carole Baskin has been given control of Joe Exotic's old zoo in Oklahoma as part of a ruling in a $1m (£800,000) trademark dispute. If you’ve watched Tiger King, then you’ll know all about the feud between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin. If you haven’t, in brief, Joe Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence for his involvement in a murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin and for animal abuse. The rivalry extended when he used logos that resembled those owned by Baskin's Big Cat Rescue company, hence the trademark dispute.

People across the US have been explaining why they are taking to the streets in protest. "Our message is still the same: Black lives matter." The protests began after a video showed 46-year-old George Floyd being arrested in Minneapolis and a white police officer continuing to kneel on his neck even after he pleaded that he could not breathe. More than 75 cities have seen streets that were deserted days ago filled with demonstrators marching shoulder to shoulder. #GeorgeFloyd #Protests #US #BBCNews

Tristan Cross, from the UK, missed his local boozer so much during lockdown he recreated it in virtual reality. It took Tristan two weeks to learn how to build 3D models using YouTube videos. He is still working on making it so the beer in the virtual glasses disappears as you drink, which is "a crucial part of drinking". #Pub #VR #YouTube #Covid19 #Coronavirus #Tech #bbcnews
