1. A woman in the Czech Republic has given birth to the country’s first set of quintuplets. The five babies were reportedly delivered via C-section, in an operation that took doctors just two hours.
Twenty-three-yer-old Alexandra Kinova had four boys and a girl. Her husband told a local newspaper: “They are beautiful, but they look quite alike.”
2. Former Yothu Yindi lead singer, M. Yunupingu, has died at his home in the Northern Territory. He was 56. Yunupingu had reportedly been battling kidney disease. He was named as the Australian of the Year in 1992 and was inducted into the Aria Hall of Fame last year.
Mamamia has chosen not to publish an image of Yunupingu out of respect to Aboriginal traditions.
3. Low-cost airline Jetstar apparently refused to let a passenger with cerebral palsy board a flight. Michael Folbigg says his 21-year-old granddaughter Ashley Papworth was planning to travel from Brisbane to Newcastle when the incident occurred.
Mr Folbigg told News Limited: “There were family members available to help Ashley on to the flight and also to help with her on arrival at Newcastle.” He said the airline “cited difficulties in communication as their reason for their refusal. Ashley is (diagnosed with) cerebral palsy, not an imbecile.”
4. British Prime Minister David Cameron has reportedly been ‘stunned’ by allegations of a secret love affair. Two people have reportedly come forward with details – but the British media have not been able to publish their names because of legal reasons.
