LONDON - Sally Jones, a British jihadi who recruited online for the Islamic State group, has been killed in Syria by a U.S. drone along with her 12-year-old son, The Sun newspaper reported on Thursday. A convert to Islam from southern England, Jones was nicknamed the “White Widow” by the British press after her jihadi husband Junaid Hussain, also an IS militant, was killed by a drone in 2015. Quoting a British intelligence source who had been briefed by U.S. counterparts, The Sun reported that Jones and her son had been killed in June close to Syria’s border with Iraq, as she

SINGAPORE - Oil prices eased on Thursday as U.S. fuel inventories rose despite efforts by OPEC to cut production and tighten the market. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were trading at $50.98 per barrel at 0647 GMT, down 32 cents, or 0.6 percent, from their last settlement. Brent crude futures, the international benchmark for oil prices, were at $56.58, down 36 cents, or 0.6 percent, from the previous close. Starting this year, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other producers including Russia agreed to cut output by 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) to prop up prices. The

Trump Iran deal plan risks opening

Washington President Donald Trump appears poised to "decertify" the Iran nuclear deal in an effort to initiate tougher and more wide-ranging restrictions on Tehran, but his plan -- which hinges on Congress determining a path forward -- is raising concerns of a potential backlash that could set the stage for another nuclear crisis. Two senior US officials told CNN that Trump plans to "decertify" the deal this week despite the international community´s assessment that Iran is fulfiling its obligations under the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the JCPOA. While Trump will likely stop short of scrapping the agreement

President Donald Trump said that the NFL should have suspended quarterback Colin Kaepernick the first time he kneeled for the National Anthem. ´The NFL should have suspended him for one game and he would never have done it again,´ he said in an interview with Fox News´ Sean Hannity Wednesday night. ´They could have then suspended him for two games and they could have suspended him again if he did it a third time, for the season, and you would never have had a problem.´ Trump, who gave the interview from a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was harping on his opinion that not

Paul Ryan calls on Trump White House to
ban ´bump stocks´ through a new regulation

House Speaker Paul Ryan says bump stocks – devices that can effectively turn semi-automatic rifles into fully automated weapons – should be addressed through a ´regulatory fix.´ The devices have drawn attention because a dozen of them were found among the arsenal of the killer in the Oct. 1 Las Vegas massacre. Legislation has been introduced in the House and Senate to ban their sale. But Ryan says addressing the issue by regulation instead would be ´the smartest, quickest fix.´ He also questioned why the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives approved the use of bump stocks during the Obama administration.

WASHINGTON — The Navy has relieved the two top officers of the destroyer John S. McCain, nearly two months after the ship collided with a tanker while approaching Singapore, leaving 10 sailors dead. The commanding officer, Cmdr. Alfredo J. Sanchez, exercised “poor judgment,” and the executive officer, Cmdr. Jessie L. Sanchez, displayed “poor leadership of the ship’s training program,” according to a statement issued Wednesday by the Seventh Fleet in Yokosuka, Japan. While an investigation is continuing into the Aug. 21 accident, the statement said that it was “evident the collision was preventable.” Both officers were relieved by Vice Adm. Phil Sawyer,

AN American helicopter has crashed in Japan just hours after US aircraft took part in military drills near North Korea. The helicopter came down in the Okinawa region near the village of Takamura Takae on Wednesday morning, local media reported. Images taken from the scene showed the aircraft engulfed in a fireball with thick black smoke pouring into the sky. The incident, which occurred shortly after US military drills over the Korean peninsula, led to speculation that North Korea could have shot down the helicopter. Pyongyang has previously vowed to fire at any US aircraft flying near its territory. Police headed to the

Wineries across California´s Napa Valley are among the thousands of properties that have been destroyed by fierce wildfires ravaging the state this week. Paradise Ridge Winery, situated on a hill overlooking Santa Rosa, is one of the many hit by fires that broke out Sunday, with its barrels charred and its wine flowing like a river under smoldered debris. Fires across California have killed 17 people so far in the north and forced 20,000 people across the state to evacuate their homes. Nearly 150 people are unaccounted for and some 2,000 buildings have been devoured by the flames. Among the dead are

These stirring images captured in war-torn Afghanistan give a rare insight into life on the frontline. One image, taken by Australian photographer Gary Ramage, shows medics desperately fighting to save the life of a wounded marine as he makes his way to hospital via helicopter. In another, a small girl can be seen looking on as a soldier takes aim at a suspected Taliban fighter in Helmand Province. Further photos show medics hosing down a medical helicopter after it has been used to transport a wounded soldier. ´I am a combat photographer who has seen too much death,´ Ramage writes

The truth can no longer be ignored: Donald Trump is dangerously unfit to be president and could lead the nation to unthinkable disaster. So what are we going to do about it? The White House “has become an adult day care center,” where the president’s senior aides spend “every single day .?.?. trying to contain him.” That terrifying bit of information was disclosed Sunday by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), whose decision not to run for reelection has freed him to point out that the emperor is indeed naked. “Look, except for a few people, the vast

At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.” The conversation among some of the president’s longtime confidantes, along with the character of some of the leaks emerging from the White House

The Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that girls will soon be allowed to become Cub Scouts and to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout, the organization’s highest honor. "We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children," said Michael Surbaugh, chief executive of the Boy Scouts. The scouting board of directors voted unanimously to make the historic change in an organization that has been primarily for boys since its founding more than 100 years ago. Starting next year, young girls can join Cub Scout units, known as dens.

Tennessee Titans player Rishard Matthews tweeted Thursday that he’ll quit the NFL if the league implements a rule forcing players to stand during the anthem. “No I will be done playing football,” Matthews tweeted and ultimately deleted when asked if he would be willing to face punishment for not standing if a new rule is implemented. (Snip) This is a very dumb tweet, for multiple reasons. Matthews is forcing himself into a corner. What will he do if a new rule is passed, and the Titans call his bluff?

During an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, portions of which were broadcast on Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s “OutFront,” former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton denounced Harvey Weinstein’s behavior and announced that money she received from him would be part of the 10% of her income she donates to charity every year. Hillary said when she first heard the news about Weinstein, “I was just sick. I was shocked. I was appalled. It was something that was just intolerable in every way.

Scientists are warning we need “carbon-sucking” technologies by 2030 in order to prevent global temperature increases. In the fight to curtail global warming, scientists say geoengineering — large-scale manipulation of carbon dioxide and solar radiation to lessen their effect on the planet — is absolutely necessary. (Snip) It’s not just forests that are necessary. Machines are also capable of carbon sucking as seen by one carbon capture machine in Zurich, Switzerland, created by Climeworks. The machine sucks the gas from the air and can store it underground or provide it to be sold to greenhouses who use the CO2 to

Hollywood is in chaos, and all because of one man: Harvey Weinstein. Multiple allegations of rape, sexual harassment and trading sex for movie roles have forced one of the most powerful men in show business out of his company and begging for help and forgiveness. But the ripples extending from the wake of Weinstein’s dramatic fall extend much further than his business and personal relationships and so far show no signs of abating. From the women he allegedly abused, to the associates who allegedly knew about his behavior all along but stayed silent, to the A-list actors and actresses who depend on him

NBC late-night host Seth Meyers on Wednesday night burned bridges with any remaining viewers of his who still support President Trump, telling them to go away and flipping them off. Inspired by Eminem´s anti-Trump freestyle rap at the BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night, Meyers told Trump supporters to "get off the fence" and pick a side between the president and his show -- which he noted "constantly mocks and denigrates everything about [Trump]." "I know it´s a tough call," the smarmy host continued. "But the time has come to make a decision." He then rapped, "My name is Seth and I´m

Harvey Weinstein reportedly chased down a random driver to see if he could get a ride in their car after arguing with his daughter on Wednesday. TMZ reports that the disgraced movie mogul was heard screaming out just before he tried to flag down the vehicle: ´You´re making it worse.´ Weinstein was at the Los Angeles home of his daughter, who was eventually able to persuade her father back inside the house. Members of the Los Angeles Police Department arrived a short while after that, and said they were responding to a report from Lily that her father was ´suicidal

Former Obama White House advisor Dan Pfeiffer called for the United States to implement an Australian-style gun confiscation program in an article published on Wednesday. Former President Barack Obama previously said in 2016 that the United States should consider following the example of Australia, which enacted a "mandatory buy-back" of guns and created a gun registry. Pfeiffer echoed that view in Wednesday´s article, published on Crooked, a media site founded by three former Obama staffers. Pfeiffer argued Democrats should propose such a program and outlined an extensive regimen of gun restrictions that Democrats could support, advising they stop "insincere pandering"
