Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 25, 1990, the World Wide Web, the system providing quick access to websites over the Internet, was born in Geneva, Switzerland, as computer scientists Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau created the world’s first hyperlinked webpage.

Ten years ago: A fire in central China killed 309 people inside an unlicensed disco.

Five years ago: Pope Benedict XVI marked his first Christmas as pontiff, calling for concrete actions to back up “signs of hope” in the Middle East and urging peace in Darfur, Sudan and the Korean peninsula.

One year ago: The Taliban released a video purporting to show Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl, a U.S. soldier captured more than five months earlier in eastern Afghanistan.
