    The New York City mayor's office says 10 people hospitalized after a large commercial jet arrived from Dubai have tested positive for influenza. Mayoral spokesman Eric Phillips tweeted on Thursday that some tests came back inconclusive on other viruses and will be re-administered. All 10 patients will be kept in the hospital as a precaution until the final results come in. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quarantined the double-decker Emirates aircraft holding 520 passengers Wednesday so it could evaluate about 100 of them. Some had complained about coughs, headaches, sore throats and fevers.

    At least six people were killed and 15 were injured when a truck driver deliberately mowed down people in lower Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, officials tell News 4 New York.

Police sources tell News 4 that a box truck driver was traveling the wrong way down a bicycle path, injuring several people. The box truck then collided with a Home Deport rental truck,...

    Two Belgian soldiers shot and killed a man who attacked them with a knife in the center of Brussels Friday evening, the country's Federal Police told Fox News. Authorities said the attack took place on Boulevard Emile Jacquin, a major street not far from the Belgian capital's main Grand Place tourist attraction, at around 8:20 p.m. Belgian state broadcaster RTBF described the suspect as a Somali man of around 30 years of age who "allegedly shouted 'Allah Akbar' at the time of his gesture." Belgium's anti-terror crisis center said in a tweet late Friday that the "situation is under control."

    MUNCIE, Ind. (WISH) — One man is facing charges after he struck an officer for attempting to restrain him following a commotion in Muncie. It happened just before 2 p.m. Saturday inside a Goodwill store when officers were responding to a call for a fight. Upon arrival, officials found 24-year-old Khalid Bilal confronting store employees. According to reports, Bilal then went on to break an officer’s hand after an attempt to place Bilal into custody. Bilal was later tased after charging another officer that arrived on scene. After the tasing, the officer was eventually able to corral Bilal into handcuffs....

    A LORRY has ploughed into a Christmas market in Berlin, killing several and injuring 50 others in what police believe is a deliberate attack.

A huge manhunt is now under way after the driver fled the scene, with police confirming they believe it was a deliberate terror attack. Local media reported that the truck has...

  • Saudi Arabia Offers to Build 200 Mosques for Syrians in Germany

    Why will the Saudis build 200 mosques for these "refugees", yet won't take a single one in? Saudi Arabia, which doesn't permit the construction of churches but finances a mosque construction spree in the land of the infidel, will not be taking in Syrian refugees. Even though they are fellow Muslims. It will however offer to build 200 mosques in Germany for their use. ... Saudi mosques have played a key role in the rise of Islamic terrorism in the West. Just think of the explosive wonders that something short of a million migrants and all the mosques they can...

    <p>Legislation that would award the injured from the 2009 Fort Hood shooting the Purple Heart would adversely affect the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan by labeling the attack terrorism, according to a Defense Department document obtained by Fox News.</p> <p>The document comes following calls from survivors and their families for the military honor, because they say Fort Hood was turned into a battlefield when Hasan opened fire during the November 2009 attack. Fox News is told that the DOD “position paper” is being circulated specifically in response to the proposed legislation.</p>

    Sources told ABC News a backpack in Melaku's possession contained a package labeled ammonium nitrate as well as spent firearm ammunition. Ammonium nitrate, a common fertilizer, can be used in explosives. The FBI later said despite the label, the backpack presented no immediate threat. A search of Melaku's nearby car also found no potential devices. Law enforcement sources said Melaku does not appear to have known ties to any terror organization. In addition to his arrest today, Melaku already faces pending charges in Loudoun County, Virginia, for a rash of vehicle break-ins, police said.

    Held hostage for 376 days by the Islamic terrorist group Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines, Gracia Burnham doesn't seem to tire of recounting the time she and her husband spent in the jungle with their kidnappers. It was the last year of her husband's life. Burnham conducted a three-day lecture series this week at Southeastern Bible College, discussing mission work, terrorism and her personal experiences. "I've been surprised our story keeps enduring," She wrote a best-selling book about her experiences, called "In the Presence of My Enemies," after she was rescued on June 7, 2002. Both she and her husband,...

    Like so many jihad plots and actual jihad attacks and attempted attacks these days, the jihad murder of two U.S. airmen and the wounding of two others outside the Frankfurt Airport in Germany Wednesday was initially dismissed as having nothing to do with terrorism. According to the German news agency DAPD, Boris Rhein, the interior minister for the German state of Hesse hurried to the airport and almost immediately declared that there were no indications that the shootings had been a terror attack. One wonders what actually would constitute a terrorist attack for such analysts. Would the murderer have to...

    Political Correctness: "Allah Akbar!" cheered Egyptian Muslims while trampling the remains of dozens of Christians eviscerated in last Friday's suicide bombing. Yet we're assured that the phrase has nothing to do with Islam. Video taken at the gruesome scene outside a church in Alexandria, Egypt, clearly shows local rubberneckers whooping it up as they shout "Allah Akbar!" — Arabic for "Allah is greatest!" We heard the same celebratory chant from Palestinians and other Muslims around the world as the Twin Towers burned. The list of Islamic terrorists heard shouting the phrase before launching attacks is long. The 9/11 hijackers themselves...

The man apparently had canisters on him and shouted in Arabic before the blast. Swedish media were also reportedly sent a threatening email before the blast, criticizing the role of Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan and urging Muslims...
