    Less than a week after Chinese state media said the H-20 stealth bomber program was making “great progress,” there are now reports that the People’s Liberation Army Air Force, or PLAAF, might be planning to publicly reveal the plane during celebrations the mark the 70th anniversary of its founding in 2019. It has also emerged that the PLAAF showed off a logo featuring the silhouette of a flying wing-style aircraft at a recent official gala promoting plans to establish a “first-class strategic bomber division,” which may also be a nod to the up-coming H-20. Defence Blog was among the first...

    Newly released video from a Texas law enforcement helicopter shows the explosion that ended the life of Austin serial bomber Mark Conditt as pursuing officers tried to arrest him earlier this year.

Conditt was driving his SUV around 2 a.m. CT as tactical teams followed him near Round Rock, just north of Austin. The video eventually shows one police van in front of the bomber’s vehicle when another bumps...

    China lands nuclear strike capable bombers on disputed South China Sea island The Chinese air force has for the first time landed several bombers on a South China Sea island. The move could fuel tension in the region amid concern that Beijing is expanding its military might to the disputed waters. The China Daily state newspaper reported Friday that several bombers, including the long-range, nuclear strike-capable H-6K, conducted take off and landing drills at an unidentified island airfield in the South China Sea.

    China’s most prestigious aviation magazine has published an artist’s depictions of the Chinese Air Force’s next-generation heavy strategic bomber. The stealth bomber, known as JH-XX to aviation watchers, is a sleek, twin-engine aircraft quite different from U.S. stealth bomber designs.

    After listening to a recording bombing suspect Mark Conditt made a day before his death, Interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said he never mentioned anything about terrorism... Retired FBI agent Jim Ellis spoke to CBS Austin as to why investigators didn’t label Conditt’s violence as an act of terror. “When you use the word terrorism, it’s a shock word," he said. Ellis said law enforcement typically defines terrorism as the unlawful use of force or violence against people or places to intimidate a government or its citizens to further specific political or social objectives.

    The confessed Austin bomber described himself as a lifelong “psychopath” and threatened to blow himself up inside a crowded McDonald’s in a 28-minute statement recorded before his death, according to a new report. “I wish I were sorry, but I am not,” Mark Conditt said in the recording, sources told the Austin Statesman. Conditt said he feels like he’s been disturbed since childhood — but didn’t offer much else in the way of motive, acknowledging only that his three-week bombing spree caused permanent injuries to some of his victims, and left family of the two who died without their loved...

    The three previous bombings this month, over an 11-day period, killed two people and injured two others. Those three bombs were left as packages on doorsteps, while Manley said Sunday's device was different: It was placed on the side of the road. The victims were injured either while riding their bikes, or pushing them, Manley said. "It is very possible that this device was activated by someone handling or triggering a tripwire," Manley said, adding that the mechanism used to set off the explosion remained "unconfirmed."

    Before Akayed Ullah returned home to New York from his native Bangladesh, and tried to blow himself up with a pipe bomb in a crowded Manhattan subway station, he had one last thing to do — an all-night bus ride by himself to help Rohingya refugees. After visiting relatives here in the capital city, Dhaka, he traveled across the country, slept in a mosque and under a tree, and passed out a few hundred dollars of medicine in the crowded refugee camps. “When he left, he seemed happy,” said his mother-in-law, Mahfuza Akhter. “But when he returned, he was so...
