Australia says it is sending police, troops and diplomats to the Solomon Islands to help after anti-government demonstrators defied lockdown orders and took to the streets for a second day in violent protests.
After Monday's hostage situation in downtown Sydney, Australia, where an armed gunman placed an Islamic flag in the window of the cafe he stormed, Australians have come together to show solidarity and compassion for Muslim countrymen and women with the Twitter hashtag #IllRideWithYou (I'll ride with you).
First there was Chibatman, the Batman impersonator who rides around Japan on a replica of the Batpod from 'The Dark Knight.' Now there's Australian Batman Zac Mihajlovic, who rides around in a customized Batmobile built to replicate the one from Tim Burton's 1989 'Batman' film -- but this isn't just any Batmobile replica or any Batman impersonator. This vehicle is perfectly street-legal, and this Batman uses his persona to spread cheer to sick kids.
