    1. 12 die in shooting at French weekly

    Twelve people were killed when gunmen* armed with Kalashnikovs* and a rocket-launcher* opened fire in the offices of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo on January 7, Paris prosecutors said.

    Xavier Castaing, head of communications for the Paris police prefecture*, confirmed the deaths.

    The two suspects, Cherif Kouachi, 32, and his 34-year-old brother Said were killed by police.

    2. Bushfires follow Aus’ 3rd-hottest year

    Australia experienced its third-hottest year on record in 2014, paving the way for an early start to the bushfire* season, scientists said on January 8 as hundreds of firefighters battled blazes in three states.

    The biggest concern is a huge blaze in South Australia’s Adelaide Hills, with firefighters racing to contain the inferno* that has already destroyed up to 38 homes ahead of worsening weather conditions.

    3. Car bomb kills 30 outside Yemen college

    A Car bomb exploded outside a police college in Yemen’s capital Sanaa on January 8, killing about 30 people and wounding more than 50, police sources said, underscoring* the country’s deteriorating* security and a persistent al-Qaida threat.

    Sectarian* conflict after a 2011 popular uprising that led to a change of government and splits in the army has worsened since September when the Shi’ite Muslim Houthi militia seized Sanaa.

    4. Woman walks tightrope in stilettos

    A daredevil from Austin, Texas, the United States, recently walked on a tightrope* more than 100 meters in the air while wearing 3-inch (7.62-centimeter) heels.

    Daredevil Faith Dickey, who inched her way above the landscape during the Women’s Highline Meeting in Ostrov, Czech Republic, said that since no one had ever tried to walk a highline in high heels she decided to try it, the Daily Star reported.

    She said that highlining is so hard already and walking in high heels isn’t easy either so combining them was very tricky and that being on a highline is about learning to manage fear and remaining calm while adrenaline* is flowing.

    5. N. Korean deserter dies

    A North Korean army deserter* who crossed the border into China and reportedly killed four Chinese nationals in a robbery last month has died from injuries suffered during his capture, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on January 7.

    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a brief statement posted on the ministry’s website that Chinese police immediately arrested the suspect after the incident but that the North Korean soldier had subsequently died from the wounds.

    6. Firebombing at German paper

    A German tabloid* that reprinted cartoons from the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo lampooning* the Prophet Mohammed was targeted in firebombing* on Sunday.

    Police in the northern German port city of Hamburg said no one was injured in the blaze at the headquarters of the regional daily Hamburger Morgenpost, which caused only slight damage.

    The Hamburger Morgenpost, known locally as the MOPO, had splashed the Charlie Hebdo cartoons on its front page after the massacre at the Paris publication, running the headline “This much freedom must be possible!”

    7. Explosives strapped to girl kill 20

    Explosives* strapped to a girl, who was described as young as 10 years old, detonated* at a crowded marketplace in Nigeria, killing at least 20 people and injuring 18 others, according to police.

    The police estimate differed with the local hospital’s, which counted 51 people with blast injuries.

    The suicide blast happened at the main entrance of the ever-crowded Monday Market, which is the city of Maiduguri’s largest market. Around 12:40 p.m. on Saturday, the girl was stopped for screening by vigilantes* who guard the gates of the market, according to witnesses and rescuers.(SD-Agencies)
