This island, listed as a Unesco world heritage site, features the remains of a 6th century monastery as well as breeding populations of puffins , manx shearwaters, storm petrels, guillemots and kittiwakes. Currently the Irish navy has deployed one vessel to maintain a 2 mile exclusion zone around the island. Unesco is now concerned about what is going on the island, which is only visited 13 times a year by tourist groups, and has asked the Irish government for an explantion." Link to Original Source top
wijnands (874114) writes "After a girl's sweet 16 party went to more than 20000 people the Authorities in the small Dutch town Haren responded in a bit of a haphazerd manner. Rumours of an alternative party proved to be wrong. Calls went out via all the media not to come to the town.
A DJ for one of the biggest station called for people to come to Haren and now twitters it was "unwise" to have done so.
Result, a largely destroyed town with most shops either looted or damaged. Millions in property damages and, so far, 25 people arrested." Link to Original Source
