Some of the biggest news stories from the around theglobe included a plane crash in Russia that killed most of the members of a Kontinental Hockey League team, including Canadian coach Brad McCrimmon and former Vancouver Canuck star Pavol Demitra.

Butthe most popular storywas the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan’s east coast in March, sending wavesas high asseven meters and black watersurging inland. Thenatural disaster left roughly 23,000 people dead or missing and triggered a nuclear crisis at Japan’sdamaged Fukushima power plant.

Almost equally important to the Western Hemisphere was the death of Osama Bin Laden – killed in a raid by US special forces bringing and end to a 10-year manhunt.
