Full-page satellite images for 9 of the cities featured complete this section. Topical maps are provided for 'World: Regions in the News', including Iraq, Afghanistan and Israel/Palestine. The 35,000-name index includes geographical features as well as towns and cities, with both letter-figure grid references and latitude and longitude co-ordinates.
