Knut, the hugely popular polar bear at Berlin zoo, has died aged just over four years old. Zookeepers were shocked by Knut's sudden death as there was very little warning he was suffering any problems. Between 600 and 700 people were at Knut's compound and saw the four-year-old bear die, according to German media reports. Knut rose to fame after he was rejected by his mother in December 2006 and was then shown to the media for the first time in March 2007.
