For the 'news that you thought ended a century ago' file:

The Daily Telegraph in the UK reported yesterday that the First World War will officially end on Sunday, almost a century after the guns stopped firing.

The end of the war comes with the final payment of $94 million from Germany to Belgium and France as mandated in the 1919 Treaty of Versailles.
