Malta’s world-famous Azure Window, a rock arch on the island of Gozo, endured heavy storms on March 7 before it collapsed a day later. Tieqa tad-Dwejra, as it is known in Malta, fell into the sea on March 8, according to <a href="http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20170308/local/the-azure-window-lost-and-gone-forever.641810" target="_blank">local reports</a>.

The Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said that the landmark was destroyed by <a href="https://twitter.com/JosephMuscat_JM/status/839403389377208320" target="_blank">unavoidable natural erosion</a>. The opposition leader in Malta, Simon Busuttil, described the collapse of the arch as <a href="https://twitter.com/SimonBusuttil/status/839408527567372288?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" target="_blank">“a sad day for Malta”</a>.
