The Vienna Boys Choir wants to overcome its elite image. But that's not the only thing that has changed at the centuries-old institution.
A diplomatic convoy carrying the visiting US ambassador to the United Nations accidentally struck and killed a young boy in Cameroon. The officials were in the region to support local authorities fighting Boko Haram.
It was a sensation at the time. On April 7, 1766, Emperor Joseph II opened Vienna's royal hunting grounds to the public. The Viennese came in droves to enjoy the massive park, which became known as the "Prater."
A number of German designers are top earners but they never appear at the major fashion shows; we also look at a microhouse in Sweden and visit Vienna's Prater as it turns 250.
