Check out buzztracker. From the about page:
Buzztracker is software that visualizes frequencies and relationships between locations in the Google world news directory.What I didn't notice is that you can add the buzztracker map to a website.
Buzztracker tries to show you how interconnected the world is: big events in one area ripple to other areas across the globe. Connections between cities thousands of miles apart become apparent at a glance.
