‘Tagesschau’ says that according to ‘Unicef’ last year 37.000 children all around the world either were murdered or fell victim to any other serious crime like sexual assault or human-trafficking. Thus in front of the UN-building in New York ‘Unicef’ now built a memorial, an arrangement of 3.700 schoolbags – each symbolizing one thousand children – that is arranged like a soldier’s graveyard.

The German newspaper ‘GEA’ says that since the middle of July Israel has lead 5 attacks on armories owned by pro-Iran Shia-militias in Iraq. One of them was even close to Syria. Needles to say Iraq does neither approve of these attacks nor asks for such. Others accuse Israel of trying to weaken Iran’s presence in this region.

‘Suedweatpresse’ says that especially elderly people lately became the victim of the following trick: Someone calls and claims to be a police officer. He says that your son, daughter or grandchild just had caused a car accident and as he or she didn’t have the money somebody else would have to pay for the damage or the son/ daughter/ grandchild would end up in jail. Some elderly people at least are suspicious enough to insist talking to their relative on the phone. Then however an extremely whining and sobbing voice appears on the phone saying that what the alleged police officer had said was true and that even the insurance would refuse to pay as this was an exceptional case. Some elderly people then believe this story and transmit the amount of money to a certain bank account.

As long as these buildings are open anyone can use said defibrillators in an emergency. Next to the defibrillators you may find instructions on how to use them. Also now there are signs in these buildings to lead you to the precise location of the defibrillator.
