Washington, Aug 29: A blast at an institute of criminology in Brussels in Belgium and a panic which spread over reports of a shooter opening fire at the busy Los Angeles airport in the US were the two big international incidents of Monday (Aug 29).
Another major tragedy occurred at an army camp in Aden in the west Asian country of Yemen where 60 people were killed in a suicide blast.
However, there were also occurrences/events in other parts of the globe that did not bring with them the dull feeling that generally comes with a terror attack.
Here, we take a look at a few of such glimpses from across the globe:
