Sean Penn is still hard at work promoting change in other countries!
After touring Cairo, Egypt's Tahrir Square this past Friday, the actor-turned-activist is in Tripoli today, commending the Libyan people for being brave enough to overthrow Moammer Gadhafi!
We hope you've had a good time on vacation, Harry, because it sounds like next summer might not be so relaxing.
According to British press reports, Prince Harry may be headed back to the front line in Afghanistan by next summer, or as early as April.
Here's what a source at the Ministry of Defense had to say about it:
Hillary Clinton was spotted taking a bite out of dictators in Rome on Thursday night!
The U.S. Secretary of State dined with her team of colleagues, while in Italy to discuss Libyan leader Muammar Quaddafi's frozen assets and reportedly release the money to aid Libyans caught in the country's conflict.
Doesn't look like they're focusing too much on the issue at hand with all that wine around, but everyone needs to cut loose every once in a while! Ha!

Such a tragedy!
Less than two months after the Academy Awards ceremony, Oscar nominated Restrepo co-director Tim Hetherington has been killed in Libya while documenting fighting between Gaddafi's forces and rebels.
Along with Tim, Getty photographer Chris Hondros is in "extremely critical condition" following a severe brain injury from a mortar attack. Just awful! We hope he recovers.
Here's what ABC News' James Goldston had to say about Hetherington:
"Tim was one of the bravest photographers and filmmakers I have ever met. During his shooting for the Nightline specials he very seriously broke his leg on a night march out of a very isolated forward operating base that was under attack. He had the strength and character to walk for four hours through the night on his shattered ankle without complaint and under fire, enabling that whole team to reach safety."
Such a brave, fearless man whose work has impacted many, many lives. He will be missed.
Our thoughts go out to Tim's family, friends, and peers during this difficult time.
