{{newsitem|Perfect Storm on the East Coast|26 October 2012| Forecasters are now warning about a "perfect storm"- a direct hit of Hurricane Sandy, an arctic front and a jet stream- that will crash through the East Coast, specifically [[New York City]] and northward. The height of the storm is expected to occur Tuesday but forecasters say that it could take its time, lingering in the atmosphere over the same locations for five or six days. Hurricane Sandy crashed through the [[Caribbean]] today, exploding in size and strength as it hit the [[Bahamas]] after pounding [[Jamaica]][http://abcnews.go.com/US/hurricane-sandy-heads-north-east-coast-readies-perfect].}}

{{newsitem|Ceasefire in Syria|26 October 2012| For the past couple of months everybody was observing the fierce fighting happening in [[Syria]]. Activists say more than 35,000 people have been killed since then, while the UN estimates that at least 20,000 have died [http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-20087416]. However, on October 25th 2012 Syria’s government and rebel leaders have agreed a four-day ceasefire to begin on Friday October 26th 2012 for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha [http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-20087416]. There are many doubts if the agreement holds since previous attempts at ceasefires in [[Syria]] had collapsed, and the violence had continued to escalate. Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary general, welcomed the announcement, but his spokesman said the "world is now watching" to see if the guns fall silent on Friday[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/9634345/Syria-Bashar-al-Assad-agrees-to-ceasefire-but-rebels-advance-in-Aleppo.html]}}

{{newsitem|Islamist Rebels Destroy Historic Shrines of Timbuktu&mdash;a UNESCO World Heritage Site|1 July, 2012|Members of the rebel group Ansar Dine called for the destruction of all of the historic shrines of [[Timbuktu]] and began carrying out the destruction of several over the past few days. The group has implemented sharia law in areas it controls, including mandatory veils for women, the stoning of adulterers, & mutilation of thieves. The Islamist rebels have now called for the destruction of ''all'' shrines in the city, considering them to be a form of idolatry forbidden in their view of Islam (although revered by local Sufis). One shrine was destroyed in May and this past weekend armed men, including many foreigners, surrounded six shrines and began to destroy them using shovels, axes, and smashing objects inside. Thirteen other shrines, dating from as early as the 13th century, are among those composing the World Heritage Site. Mali's government has called the actions a 'war crime' and there has been plenty of outcry from UNESCO members as well. An Ansar Dine spokesperson replied "We are subject to religion and not to international opinion." The group, along with secular Tuareg rebels, captured much of northern Mali in March, and after a short joint rule, the former gained control of the region, forcing over 300, 000 residents to flee, including most of Timbuktu's population. There is also concern for 700, 000 ancient manuscripts kept in the city .[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-18665522 BBC article] [http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/119 UNESCO WHS listing]}}
