Still reeling from the Sydney hostage crisis that left three dead early Tuesday, Australians were thrust into shock again Friday after learning that eight children in one family had been found dead in one of the nation's worst mass killings. The bodies of the victims - ages 18 months to 15 years - were found stabbed to death and reportedly were discovered by their adult brother in the city of Cairns, a popular jumping-off point for tourists visiting the Great Barrier Reef in the far north of Queensland, reports the Guardian.

The Best Art Tattoos of All Time

27 minutes ago

Into the Woods review: trees fall in a forest, making one hell of a sound

17 December 2014 6:59 AM, PST
