Mediterranean: Mass Grave for Refugees (#3317) Duration: 26:10 STEREO TVG

Italy: Mediterranean becomes mass grave for refugees - A growing number of refugees are drowning as they seek to cross the Mediterranean. Several boats have capsized in the past two weeks alone, and hundreds of people have died. The UN has called it the largest loss of life ever in the sea. Until the end of last year, an Italian mission involving ships from the country's navy rushed to rescue refugees at sea, often close to the Libyan coast. Now that job has been left to a joint EU operation known as Triton, which only patrols a 30-mile zone off Italy's coast. Last year, an estimated 200, 000 people crossed the Mediterranean to reach Europe. Thousands of them died in the attempt. Cyprus: Could cheese unite the island? Halloumi cheese isn't just an age-old specialty of Cyprus, it is also one of the island's major exports. To keep it that way, the Cypriot government has asked the EU to grant halloumi "protected designation of origin" status. The island's Turkish north was initially against the idea. But now, for the first time in 40 years, Greek and Turkish Cypriots are cooperating - all in the name of cheese. In 1974, Turkish troops occupied the north, taking a third of the island. Since then, Cyprus has been divided into the Greek-dominated south and the Turkish-dominated north. Ukraine: German supporters fight alongside Pro-Russian militia - In eastern Ukraine, Germans are fighting alongside pro-Russian rebels. Most of these fighters are repatriated ethnic Germans from Russia. Many have even served in Germany's military, the Bundeswehr. Now they could lose their German citizenship. Many young Germans involved in the conflict are currently bragging online, posting pictures and videos of themselves wearing uniforms and carrying heavy weapons. 2, 500 kilometers from home, they're fighting the Ukrainian army alongside Russian-supported militias. Pro-Russian rebels are seeking autonomy from Ukraine for the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Switzerland: Heli-skiing tourism - ecological attack? Every year, around 15,000 helicopter flights transport skiers to the most remote glaciers and slopes in the Swiss Alps. Half of the landing zones are in or near nature preserves. Environmentalists are now fighting back against what they view as an ecological attack. For years, environmental organizations have been trying to protect wildlife from the deafening noise of helicopters. But they've been unsuccessful in winning a ban on what's called heli-ski tourism, or even a reduction in the number of flights. The helicopters land at 40 sites on alpine summits. Heli-skiing for the super-rich is a lucrative business. Britain: Traffic vigilante - Traffic in Britain's capital is not for the faint-hearted. Millions struggle through rush hour every day, and many drivers pay little attention to traffic laws. But they didn't expect to encounter Dave Sherry. Sherry is a bus driver, but in his free time he mounts his bike, puts on a helmet camera and heads back into London's river of traffic. He films violations in the city and publishes his videos on the Internet. 70 offenders have already been brought to court because of his evidence. The police say they're thankful for the help of the self-appointed traffic vigilante.
