Last Words From Tragic Trip
A bus crash devastated lives on Tuesday night in Switzerland. The crash killed twenty-eight people including twenty-two school children. Two coach drivers also died in the crash, which was one of Europe's worst road crashes in history. Two hundred investigators were involved to investigate and recover the dead. Investigators say that children were wearing seatbelts and no other vehicle was involved. Twenty-four people were injured and taken to Swiss hospitals, including 17 Belgians, 3 Dutch, 1 German , 1 Pole and 2 others not identified. Belgium declared a national day of mourning for dead children from St. lambertus School. Politicians and many others have shown sadness about the crash.
The final blog of the school skiing trips was, “tomorrow will be a busy day and I do not know if I can write a blog posting. But on Wednesday we’ll be back , all of us.”

Warlord Brought To Justice
A warlord named Thomas Labunga was convicted of kidnapping children from their families and friends. Thomas Labunga was in the international criminal court on Wednesday, 14 March. The court had delivered the first judgment in its ten year history finding a Congolese warlord guilty of recruiting child soldiers. Labunga was convicted of snatching children off the streets and then turning them into killers. He has also used children below the age of 15 as bodyguards. Labunga has been kidnapping children and forced them to join the armed wing of his supporting movement, from 2002 to 2003.
Angelina Jolie who was in court the same day said, “This is their day, where these children will feel there is no impunity for what happened to them and for what they suffered.” Labunga now faces a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The court cannot impose the death penalty.

The Chelsea players demolished their hard to beat opponents. Despite the massive victory, a 4-2 score-line would not have got them through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League because of the aggregate score.John Terry, Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and Branslav Ivanovic scored the goals for the Blues. Terry scored a great header and Lampard scored a fantastic penalty. Drogba and Ivanovic scored with amazing shots. Di Matteo, the Chelsea manager, said, “The performance was just outstanding.”
