Syria Civil War
The unrest in Syria began during the Arab Spring in early 2011. Since the early protests against President Bashar al-Assad and his government the situation turned into an ongoing multisided armed conflict.
The United Nations estimate that more than 100,000 people have been killed and millions displaced. While the UNHCR counted approximately 500,000 registered Syrian refugees in January 2013 figures reached more than 4,6 million three years later. The humanitarian situation inside the country keeps deteriorating as in Aleppo, Madaya and other besieged areas about 400,000 people are searching for aid according to UNHCR estimates.
Tennis Australian Open Grand Slam
The Australian Open tennis tournament is the first of four annual Grand Slam tournaments which are the most important tennis events in the world. The major event is being played in two weeks at the Melbourne Park in Australia with its three primary courts Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena and Margaret Court Arena. Played on grass until 1987, the Australian Open switched surfaces to hard courts. As the first major tournament of the season it gives tennis players a chance to put an exclamation point for the new year and to reach fame and glory like previous Australian Open legends Margaret Court, Roy Emerson or current holders Angelique Kerber and Novak Djokovic.
