    With a blue sky and the scent of spring in the air, Saturday afternoon in Berlin was the perfect time to visit the city's zoo, but for some 600 visitors it turned into a horror: Before their eyes, Knut the polar bear collapsed, then floated dead in the water of his pen.

    "He was by himself in his compound, he was in the water, and then he was dead," Berlin Zoo bear keeper Heiner Kls told the Associated Press. An autopsy will be performed on the 4-year-old mammal to determine the cause of death. Polar bears in captivity have been known to live more than 30 years.

The UK can feel free to add itself to a very long list of sovereign countries upon which this honour has been bestowed by the US. It's really one of those "Ah shucks, I'll bet you say that to all the countries" scenarios.
