And it has created a record. First recorded human fatality due to a meteorite. Can someone bring up the statistics on being hit by a meteorite? By the way. Wasn't there supposed to be a close flyby soon? Maybe this was a part of the main bulk. Remember the Russian meteorite a few years ago, it was also during a close flyby. "CHENNAI: A day after a man died and three others were injured in a mysterious explosion in Vellore, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa said the "mishap" was caused by a falling meteorite. Kamaraj, a bus driver of the Bharathidasan Engineering College located near...

" Footage shows residents raising concerns about refugee children allegedly harassing German-born kids. But Jens Müller, mayor of Bad Schlema in Erzgebirgskreis, Germany, surprised onlookers by calling on residents to "not walk in areas" where refugees would be.

"You're not allowed to walk in your own city anymore." - See more at: https://www.conservativereview.com/en/commentary/2016/02/watch%20bad%20schlema%20dhimmitude%20and%20open%20borders%20suicide#sthash.0A5AzU2p.dpuf
