    Cops have busted twin brothers from the Bronx for allegedly stockpiling explosive materials and crafting bombs inside their home — with help from high school students. Christian Toro, a former teacher at Harlem Prep, and his brother, Tyler Toro, were arrested by the FBI on Thursday as part of a joint investigation with the NYPD. The two 27-year-olds had been forging explosive devices inside their Pelham Parkway apartment since last October — using gunpowder from fireworks as the base for their bomb-making, according to the complaint. A search of the residence turned up a slew of dangerous chemicals, including 20...

    Someone "pushed the wrong button" to send out a false alert to warn of an inbound ballistic missile alarm to Hawaiians, according to Hawaii Gov. David Ige. The incident occurred during an employee shift change, Ige added while speaking with CNN. Cellphones, television, and radio stations received the morning emergency alert, which claimed it was not a drill. Local officials and the U.S. Pacific Command have since confirmed that the emergency alert was sent out in error to residents of the island chain, which recently tested out a Cold War-era nuclear warning siren in response to North Korea's missile and...

    A suspicious package was found near a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil Friday in Dallas, Texas, prompting pro-life advocates to call the police and the bomb squad. WFAA News 8 reports police later determined that the suspicious package was a hoax, quite possibly meant to scare pro-life advocates who peacefully pray outside a nearby abortion clinic. Pro-Life Dallas said the suspicious package was the second target this week against pro-lifers’ peaceful, prayerful work. On Oct. 11, the group said a man also vandalized the site and left behind a beheaded doll with the word “pro-choice” written on it. “Our...

    NORTH Korea could detonate its largest ever nuclear “city-busting” bomb today as it ramps up its fight against the United States. CIA officials and US generals are extremely concerned the hermit kingdom could set off a bomb, or at least test another missile over the next 24 hours. They fear Kim Jong-un could choose today as it is is the founding anniversary of North Korea’s ruling Worker’s Party. On Monday they were highly concerned Kim would choose to bomb the US on that day as it was Columbus Day. Russian lawmaker Anton Morozov, who returned from Pyongyang last week, warned...
