IN YEARS PAST, THE ANNUAL RITE KNOWN AS ARBAEEN, A COMMEMORATION OF THE MARTYRDOM OF IMAM HUSSEIN HAS BEEN A FREQUENT TARGET OF SUNNI EXTREMIST GROUPS LIKE THE ISLAMIC STATE AND IT’S PREDECESSOR, AL QUAEDA.

A SCAFFOLDING COLLAPSE IN BEIJING CHINA IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATHS OF AT LEAST 74 PEOPLE, ACCORDING TO THE STATE MEDIA. IT IS BEING CALLED THE COUNTRY’S WORST SAFETY ACCIDENT IN OVER TWO YEARS.+

THE EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY BELIEVES IT HAS COME TO A CONCLUSION AS TO WHY THE SCHIAPARELLI LANDER CRASHED ON THE SURFACE OF MARS ON OCTOBER 19TH.
