Australia Battles Deadly Wildfires

This New York Times story reports the fires have claimed at least 131 lives.

The paper reports: “Officials suspect that some of Saturday’s fires were set deliberately. Huge tracts of land were declared crime scenes and police announced a special task force to hunt suspected arsonists, who could face murder charges.”
