A section without love locks is seen on the Pont des Arts in Paris, Wednesday April 16, 2014. A recent fad among travellers of hitching padlocks on bridges and at tourist attractions worldwide to symbolically immortalize their amorous attraction has swept up this reputed City of Love more than most. Now, two American-born women who live in Paris say they've had enough, launching a petition drive to try to get mostly laissez-faire city officials to step in and do something about what they call an unbearable eyesore in a majestic municipality.

Children play beside Police armored vehicles close to where a prominent dissident republican has been shot dead in west Belfast, Northern Ireland, Friday, April, 18, 2014. A senior Irish Republican Army hard-liner has been shot to death in Belfast three years after former comrades in his splinter group threatened to kill him. Nearby residents say gunmen escorted the victim, 43-year-old Tommy Crossan, to a fuel depot overlooked by houses and shot him in the head and body at close range. No group claimed responsibility. Police and politicians blamed Crossan’s former group, the Continuity IRA, for following through on 2011 death threats against him. The Continuity IRA accused him of keeping money from robberies and providing information on colleagues to British intelligence agents. Crossan denied this and refused to flee his native Catholic west Belfast. The major IRA faction, the Provisionals, renounced violence in 2005 but other militant groups remain active. Their last killing was in October. (AP Photo/Peter Morrison)

In this Wednesday April 16, 2014 photo,  Charlotte van den Berg poses for a portrait outside the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, rear, in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Charlotte van den Berg was a 20-year-old college student working part-time in Amsterdam’s city archives when she and other interns came across a shocking find: letters from Jewish Holocaust survivors complaining that the city was forcing them to pay back taxes and late payment fines on property seized after they were deported to Nazi death camps. Van den Berg waged a lonely fight against Amsterdam’s modern bureaucracy to have the travesty publicly recognized. Now, largely due to her efforts, Amsterdam officials are considering compensating Holocaust survivors for the taxes and possibly other obligations, including gas bills, they were forced to pay for homes that were occupied by Nazis or collaborators while the rightful owners were in hiding or awaiting death in the camps.
