The aftermath of the Kunduz hospital bombing: The AP reports that about 16 U.S. military personnel have been disciplined for mistakes that led to the airstrike against a Médecins Sans Frontières-run hospital in Afghanistan last year. The strike, which the U.S. has said was the result of human error, killed 42 people. The AP says the Pentagon will release a full report of its investigation of the bombing tomorrow.

Lions on a plane: Thirty-three circus lions will be transported by airplane from Lima, Peru, to a sanctuary in South Africa tomorrow. “These lions have endured hell on earth and now they are heading home to paradise,” said Jan Creamer, the president of Animal Defenders International, which rescued the animals, earlier this week. “This is the world for which nature intended these animals for.”

The royal family: Tomorrow marks the fifth wedding anniversary of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, aka William and Kate. Expect the Internet to produce nauseating photo collections of the happy couple.
