I'm really sick and tired of all the individual threads about celebraties deaths, about random stuff that's currently on the news in the US, about somewhat special events that only a few users here might care about...
On the other hand, it's sometimes quite interesting to read about this stuff, so, let's collect it in this thread.

Please post about things that are big on the news in your country, stuff that moves the people and communities, big events of any sorts. Put some sort of headline in your post, summarize the event and add a link to an actual article, please follow this simple guideline.

Some dutch person might want to start with Laura Dekker? I'm pretty certain no one outside of the Netherlands (and surprisingly Germany) really knows about this case.
