An 8.6 magnitude earthquake off Indonesia puts the entire Indian Ocean under a tsunami warning.

 

Similarities to the earthquake and tsunami in 2004 have people on alert. 


The BBC explains what’s changed since then.

“ … there has now been a tsunami warning network put in the Indian Ocean. So, there should be more information getting to people much earlier than was the case last time.”

North Korean officials say they’ve begun fueling the rocket for a controversial launch expected to happen this week.

According to Al Jazeera, Japan and the U.S. are threatening “appropriate action” if North Korea carries out those plans.

“We believe that strength and security will not come from more provocations, but from North Korea living up to its commitments and obligations.”

The cease-fire deadline is less than a day away.

Despite reports of continued violence, United Nations envoy Kofi Annan says the Syrian government has assured him it will respect the cease-fire.

Here’s euronews.

“If everyone respects it, I think, by 6:00 on Thursday the 12th — 6:00 in the morning on Thursday the 12th — we should see much-improved situation on the ground.”

Developments on both sides of the Trayvon Martin case.

CNN reports George Zimmerman’s attorneys held a press conference to announce they’d lost contact with him and are no longer representing him. 

Meanwhile, the prosecution is talking about an upcoming announcement.

“We could learn before the week is out whether George Zimmerman is going to be charged in the Trayvon Martin shooting. A special prosecutor, last night, said that she is planning to have an announcement all within 72 hours.”
