It's been the opening item for the news bulletins in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. It's also frontpage news in the papers. Australia
definitely isn't ignored here in Europe, previous incidents like forest fires or the dust storm late last summer were well covered here. Edit:

Although I will admit anything coming from the US gets more coverage by default. During Katrina every channel had their own people in the US looking
for a unique perspective to cover. While now I'm mostly seeing the same shots over and over again (the helicopter shot of the water rushing in, the
boat crashing into the bridge and toppling). It's almost like no-one has any correspondents in Australia.
