 Tienduizenden mensen zijn getroffen  
 door een internetstoring.Abonnees van  
 verschillende providers zoals T-Mobile 
 en XS4ALL,hebben er last van.De        
 problemen begonnen om 2.30 uur en doen 
 zich verspreid over het land voor.Een  
 technisch team van KPN is op zoek naar 
 de oorzaak van de storing.XS4ALL meldt 
 dat 35.000 abonnees zijn gedupeerd.    
                                        
 In Barneveld zijn bij een schuurbrand
 20.000 kippen omgekomen.De brand brak  
 vanmorgen vroeg uit;de oorzaak is nog  
 onbekend.De brandweer wist te voorkomen
 dat een tweede schuur ook vlam vatte.  
 Dit jaar zijn al veel dieren gedood    
 door stalbranden.Zo kwamen bij twee    
 branden in Limburg 35.000 kippen om.
