25 dead acctualy..—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 58.160.97.158 (talkcontribs)

76 now and and anticipated to rise to over 100. Wikinews is a joke since the introduction of the approval system as there is no way the articles can be up-to-date. 220.233.191.2 10:09, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

This was factually accurate at the time of publication. Like other news sources, such as the BBC, a new article should be written with the updated details. --Brian McNeil / talk 11:52, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

This could be improved since there is not enough articles. Having said this, that Wikinews is not BBC (LOL), this is really umbelieveble: i cannot understand, over 100 killed. It's horrible. How can be so bad?--Erik455 (talk) 23:12, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

bushfires in australia[edit]

i realise its hard to keep with international events that are happening all over at once. however the fires in australias have confirmed 181 dead and an estimate of up to 300 with 1,100 homes gopne. the only other event of such proportions was in the US in the 1800's where 1500 to 2500 died. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.216.223.80 (talk) 08:53, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
