A 12-day-old boy has died after he was snatched from his mother and bitten by a monkey in northern India. The infant's mother was breastfeeding him at their home in the city of Agra when the animal entered the house and grabbed him, the family said. The monkey dropped the badly bitten child on a neighbor's roof after locals gave chase to the animal. The baby died of his injuries in hospital. Locals say monkey attacks in the area are growing more frequent. The baby's uncle, Dhirendra Kumar, told the BBC that the family was heartbroken.

Astronomers have discovered a planet around one of the closest stars to our Sun. Nearby planets like this are likely to be prime targets in the search for signatures of life, using the next generation of telescopes. The planet's mass is thought to be more than three times bigger than our own, placing it in a category of world known as "super-Earths". It orbits Barnard's star, which sits "just" six light-years away. The star is an extremely faint "red dwarf" that's about 3% as bright as the Sun.

On this day in 1962, the Ethiopian parliament and Eritrean Assembly voted unanimously for the abolition of Eritrea's federal status, making Eritrea(independent since 1993) a simple province of the Ethiopian empire.
