If a tornado kills 12 people in Alabama, it's breaking news in the US, but who in Tunisia would care or even hear about it?

What is newsworthy and what isn't depends on your outlet's primary audience. For example, Charlie Sheen's HIV was a big deal here for a few days, but I'm sure the news in Nigeria or Malaysia discussed matters that were more important to them.
