    Fifteen people were injured at a concert in Norway on Sunday where an American DJ was scheduled to perform, NBC News reports. 

    Police in Oslo told NBC News that part of the venue’s roof collapsed just before 5:30 p.m. None of the injuries at the venue, Sentrum Scene, were serious, according to police. 

    Among the injured were 13 Norwegians, one French and one German national. 

    American DJ Steve Aoki tweeted that he was “saddened and shocked that a piece of the roof collapsed in an accident at the venue in Oslo tonight."

    A pig who escaped slaughter is now living out her life in a South African sanctuary and painting original works that have sold for up to $2,000.

    "She was really small when I rescued her," said Joanne Lefson, who manages the South African Farm Sanctuary, a haven for rescued farm animals where the pig now lives. "She's very smart and intelligent so I placed a few balls and some paintbrushes and things in her pen, and it wasn't long before I discovered that she really liked the bristles and the paintbrush...She just really took a knack for it."

    Funds from the art sales go towards the sanctuary.
