New Year's Day.



Nothing changes on New Year's Day.
NAIROBI, Kenya - A mob torched a church where hundreds had sought refuge Tuesday, and witnesses said dozens of people — including children — were burned alive or hacked to death with machetes in ethnic violence that followed Kenya's disputed election.
Not under a blood red sky.
BAGHDAD - A suicide attacker killed at least 32 men gathered in eastern Baghdad Tuesday to mourn the death of a retired Iraqi army officer, a Shiite who was slain last week in a car bombing blamed on al-Qaida in Iraq.
No, nothing changes on New Year's Day.
A US diplomat in Sudan has died of his injuries following a shooting in the capital, Khartoum, US officials say. The diplomat's Sudanese driver was killed on the spot during the attack in the early hours of Tuesday.
