Mario Soares, a former prime minister and president of Portugal who
helped steer his country toward democracy after a 1974 military coup and
grew into a global statesman through his work with the Socialist
International movement, has died. He was 92.
Lisbon's Red Cross Hospital said in a statement he died there on Saturday afternoon with his son and his daughter at his bedside. The hospital did not provide a cause of death, but Soares had been a patient since Dec. 13 and in a coma for the past two weeks.
Tilikum the orca has died after more than two decades at SeaWorld
Orlando, where he gained notoriety for killing a trainer in 2010 and was
later profiled in a documentary that helped sway popular opinion
against keeping killer whales in captivity.
He will not be replaced. He was the first of SeaWorld's orcas to die since the company announced the end of its orca breeding program in March 2016.
