What caught my eye

As I was scanning Google News for a headline that would jump out at me, I found this article titled
"Arrests made in shooting of Pakistani schoolgirl Malala".  The addition of the victim's name in the headline automatically brings forth the feeling of the impact the story is trying to get across.  If  single word to be removed from this title, it simply would not be as powerful as it is.

The story has an impact by using the reader's emotions to keep interest held, chiefly the concern for the girl's condition.  The full story can be found here.
