a brief history of notre-dame

The cathedral was built over the course of around 200 years and was finally completed in 1345. It has been a central part of France’s history; it is the site where kings and emperors have been crowned, and it has survived for centuries through wars and revolutions. In 1996, a Disney animated film set in the cathedral, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, was released, based on an 1831 book by the French author Victor Hugo. In 2017, it was decided the cathedral needed urgent maintenance work.…

fire destroys roof and spire of notre-dame cathedral

A huge fire has badly damaged the medieval cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, France. The blaze began at around 6.30pm local time on 15 April. Firefighters managed to save the world-famous landmark from total destruction, but the spire and roof of the 850-year-old building did not survive. What happened?

A young protester on the day Bashir resigned. On 11 April, the president of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, was forced to resign after almost 30 years in power.

The demonstrations started because people were unhappy about the government doubling the price of bread and the rising cost of fuel. The protests then widened to include complaints about the way Bashir had been governing Sudan. People accused Bashir of corruption (using a position of…

tiger woods makes an amazing comeback

Tiger Woods On 14 April, the golfer Tiger Woods won his fifth Masters tournament at Augusta National golf course in Georgia, US. His victory is one of the most remarkable comebacks in sporting history, and happened nearly 11 years after the last time he won a major golfing tournament.Two years ago, due to a back injury, Woods, who is now 43, could barely walk and had trouble bending to tie his shoelaces. It looked as if his career was over – at one point he was ranked outside the top 1,000 golfers in the world. He said in 2017 that he had had a back operation just for the “chance of having a normal life.” Yet the procedure was a success and he found he could swing a golf…
