Glaciers tumble into a lake near Christchurch, New Zealand, after a terrible earthquake. I’m assuming the flooding of the town was caused by the displaced waters. Over 100 people died, billions of dollars in damages were reported, and search teams still look for possible survivors. Very sad.
After Egypt demonstrations die down, protests in Libya have been ongoing all week. The government has been firing and killing unarmed civilians. People are trying to leave the city for a safer place. Apparently Colonel Gadhafi refuses to leave and demands his military to continue resisting protestors. U.S. has imposed sanctions on Libya and frozen the assets of Gadhafi and his family. (Good! … about the frozen assets and sanctions)
