Flare Out: Massive plasma eruption from the Sun

An elongated solar filament that extended almost half the sun's visible hemisphere erupted into space on April 28-29, 2015, in a large burst of bright plasma. Filaments are unstable strands of solar material suspended above the sun by magnetic forces. Solar astronomers around the world had their eyes on this unusually large filament and kept track as it erupted. Both of the coronagraph instruments on the joint ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO, show the coronal mass ejection associated with the eruption.

USA - Baltimore: Man reportedly shot at by police, pepper spray used against crowd

A man was shot reportedly by the police during daytime protests in Baltimore on Monday afternoon. The incident happened at 2:45 p.m. ET close to the intersection of Pennsylvania and North avenues in Baltimore near the epicenter of where protests have occurred in the days since the arrest and death last month of Freddie Gray, a young black man. It was not immediate clear who had fired, but eyewitnesses at the scene and a reporter for Fox News said that it was an officer-involved shooting.

Usa: spari alla mostra su Maometto, due morti in Texas

Uno degli attentatori di Dallas è cittadino americano. Si chiama Elton Simpson, dell'Arizona, residente a Phoenix. Secondo la Abc sarebbe una vecchia conoscenza dell'Fbi, precedentemente indagato per terrorismo. Nulla si sa ancora sull'identita' del secondo assalitore. Simpson - secondo le indiscrezioni ottenute dalla Abc - fu in particolare giudicato colpevole e condannato per aver mentito all'Fbi circa i suoi programmi di recarsi in Africa, probabilmente per arruolarsi nelle fila dei militanti jihadisti.

Alle vermiste Nederlanders gevonden in Nepal

Alle Nederlanders die ten tijde van de aardbeving in Nepal in het land waren, zijn gevonden. Met al deze Nederlanders in inmiddels contact geweest, aldus het ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken. Gisterochtend waren er nog 23 Nederlanders met wie nog geen contact was gelegd. "Dit betekent dat bijna iedereen die zich zorgen maakte over familie, vriend of vriendin, weer gerust kan ademhalen'', zegt minister Bert Koenders.  Voor zover bekend zijn twaalf Nederlanders gewond geraakt bij de aardbeving en zijn er geen Nederlanders omgekomen, aldus Buitenlandse Zaken. ,,Een Duitse vrouw die al jaren in Kerkrade woonde, is overleden.'' Werd eerst gedacht dat ongeveer 350 Nederlanders in Nepal waren ten tijde van de beving, inmiddels weet Buitenlandse Zaken dat er toen ongeveer 900 waren.
