In Bucharest last week a performance by the heavy metal band “Goodbye to Gravity” ended in tragedy when pyrotechnic effects used on stage started a fire that swept through the “Colectiv Club” killing twenty nine and hospitalizing another 140 with severe burns, smoke inhalation and other injuries. Three days of official mourning were put in place by authorities who say the death toll may rise as investigations continue with the President, Klaus Lohannis, saying safety regulations were ignored.
An Airbus 321 operated by Kogalymavia, the Russian airline also known as Metrojet, broke up at high altitude on Saturday above Egypt’s Sinai peninsula killing all 224 people on board, most of them Russian tourists making their way home from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. Militants connected to Islamic State took responsibility for the aircraft’s loss but despite these claims being dismissed by experts, some airlines have suspended flights over the area until after the investigation.
Turkish elections held last week saw the ruling Justice & Development party of Recep Tayyip Erdogan reclaim a parliamentary majority winning some 316 seats allowing them to form a government without coalition, something that had failed to be achieved since elections in June. Main opposition party, the CHP, won just 25.4% of the vote although the pro-Kurdish HDP gained 59 seats, above the 10% required to enter parliament, as did the Nationalist Movement Party, MHP, with their win of 41 seats.

Meanwhile Chilean primary schools were forced to return hundreds of copies of the children’s fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood” after they were accidentally sent copies of “Little Red Riding Hood Eats The Wolf” instead, a collection of short erotic stories featuring depictions of sex and violence by Pilar Quintana who said “I’m surprised that people were shocked about the sexual content of the book.” He also went on to say that he felt the book wasn’t inappropriate reading material for young people.
