Major World Current Events in 2011?

I need some current events that happened around the world, from January 1, 2011, to now. It would be nice to have about two for each month.

And although I say major, please don't list one of the obvious ones such as: Japan's earthquake, the riots in Egypt, etc. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!
