A manhunt is underway for a suspect in the Brussels terror attacks
Belgium was rocked by a series of coordinated terror attacks last night - morning peak hour Brussels time - with bombs going off through the capital's airport and at Maelbeek underground train station. Over 31 people were killed and 250 injured, according to current reports. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the atrocity, which has occurred less than six months since the terror attacks in Paris. Police are conducting raids across the country to find one man believed to be involved, in a search that has already unearthed another bomb and an IS flag. Landmarks are lighting up around the world in the colours of Belgium's flag in a show of solidarity. The attacks come just four days after the prime suspect from the Paris attacks was arrested in Brussels.

Malcolm Turnbull to announce his first major climate change policy today
The Daily Telegraph has reported that the Prime Minister will today announce a plan to create a $1 billion Clean Energy Innovation Fund, which will be used to fund clean energy projects like solar farms. The move signals an abandonment of Tony Abbott's climate change policies.

Margot Robbie is taking on ice skater Tonya Harding's shocking story
Robbie will both play the lead and produce the film, to be titled I, Tonya, Deadline reports. To refresh your memory, Harding was the pro ice skater found guilty of conspiring to injure her main rival, Nancy Kerrigan, before the 1994 Olympics. Harding's husband, along with hired thugs, tried to break Kerrigan's legs, but were caught in the process.

Heading to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar? You might have to camp
Organisers are considering erecting Bedouin-style tents in the desert surrounding stadiums to combat a likely accommodation shortage. Approximately 500,000 football fans are expected to descend on the city for the event, but in January, Qatar authorities revealed that only 46,000 rooms would be ready. FIFA's requirement is for 60,000 rooms to be available, so the tent idea is being floated as a creative way for the country to make up the difference.
