First human embryos cloned

German news magazine Der Spiegel reports here that scientists from South Korea and the U.S. have successfully cloned 30 human embryos, and obtained stem cells from the clones. What a big step forward - this might introduce a new era in medicine.

(If anyone knows of an English version of this announcement, feel free to post a comment.)

Addendum: BBC reports the same breakthrough here - thanks to Scott Galloway for being the first to provide a link to an English version.
