The 2001 Australian cricket team recreate a famous scene from the First World War in which the Anzac troops placed cricket on the beachGetty

Former Australia cricket captain Steve Waugh recalls the team's 2001 Gallipoli trip:

I guess what struck me most was the graves, in particularly the ages etched on them; 18, 19, 20. You put yourself in that position and realise how terrifying it must have been, how surprising it must have been.

16-year-old Eritrean migrant Nael Goitom:

They asked us 'what do you choose, to be killed or to become Muslims?' Of course we choose the latter. 'We'll fight for you', we said.

Deputy director of Investigations at the National Crime Agency Graham Gardner:

The men involved in this group actively targeted families to facilitate the sexual abuse of their children, toddlers and babies. The depravity of these men appeared to know no bounds and is without doubt as vile as we have seen.

Kanye West:

When I was 10 years old I lived in China, and at the time they used to come up to me and rub my face to see if the colour would rub off. It was really f****d up, but I feel like it was preparing me for a world perspective that a lot of my friends who never got a chance to travel didn't get. Now my perspective, a lot of times, is so much wider than someone who's limited to the concept of any particular so-called world that's not the real world.

Enterpreneur and IBTimes columnist James Caan:

In my 30 years of business, I have never witnessed an election like this one. I don't think anybody could call it at the moment, it really is anybody's game. It's clear that the time of two or three-party politics is over, and the parties once considered outsiders – the Scottish National Party, the Green Party, Ukip and Plaid Cymru – are having their voices heard.

Former Nato commander General Sir Richard Shirreff:

I heard the opposition party leaders' debate the other day when there was much talk about 'you wouldn't use Trident against Islamic State (Isis)'. It is absolutely infantile to be talking about that because the reality is it's about projection of power.
