2013 was a year of political change in Malta. It was a year which saw no shortage of news, political, crime, human interest stories and so on. The country was, in particular, shocked by the drowning of four tourists as they headed for their yacht off Gozo. Stories emerging from John Dalli's resignation from the European Commission, and from the oil procurement scandal were also often in the headlines. 

The top stories, as captured by the cameras of timesofmalta.com, are recalled through the two video clips above.
