    As tension mounts between Russia and the West, Syria’s brutal seven-year civil war has become an arena for world powers to display their advanced weaponry and ability to project their military might. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said his country had tested nearly 215 advanced weapons in Syria since his country directly intervened in the conflict to support Syrian President Bashar Assad in September 2015. Russia has shown off both its Kalibr cruise missiles, launched from warships and submarines in the Mediterranean and Caspian Seas, and the ability of its Tu 160 bombers to fly an 8,000-mile strike round trip mission...

    Syrian government forces have intensified their attack on rebels in Eastern Ghouta as fighter jets rained fire down on one of the last insurgent strongholds in the region. Bombs containing what appeared to be white phosphorus, a banned weapon, lit up the night sky over the town of Douma in the early hours of Friday as videos from the ground showed dozens of fires burning in hellish scenes. The bombardment came as hundreds of anti-government fighters and civilians stranded in another rebel enclave around the town of Harasta were allowed to flee to Idlib province.

The name of the suspect, described only as a 24-year-old white man, has not been released, pending notification of his family, Manley said. Although...

    AUSTIN, Tex. — The Austin police responded on Sunday night to an explosion that injured two people in a neighborhood in southwest Austin, just hours after an unusual direct appeal to whoever was responsible for several deadly package explosions this month that have kept the capital of Texas on edge. A short time after the authorities said they received reports of an explosion, two men in their 20s were taken to a hospital with serious injuries, the Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Service said.

Andrew Cecil Schneck, 25, was charged with attempting to maliciously damage or destroy property receiving federal financial assistance, federal prosecutors announced. A park ranger doing a routine patrol of the area around Hermann Park on Saturday caught Schneck kneeling in the bushes near the statue of Richard Dowling, a commander in the Confederate army

    By Philip Cottraux The arena filled with young people as a cloud of anticipation grew thick in the air. A pop star emerged on stage before an adoring crowd. The cheers mingled with acoustics thundered into the night sky. Some were close enough to see their idol, but most could only faintly see her in the distance. Her image played on a giant telescreen, singing to the backdrop of glittery music. Then a terrible explosion shook the ground, and screams of adoration were drowned by shrieks of bloody horror. Pop music concerts are exercises of pure fantasy. A famous young...

    LONDON (Reuters) - British police have arrested a "large part of the network" behind this week's Manchester suicide bombing but more arrests are likely, the country's top counter-terrorism officer said on Friday. Mark Rowley said "immense" progress had been made in the investigation into Salman Abedi, who killed 22 people, seven of them children, at a pop concert in Manchester on Monday. "They're very significant, these arrests. We're very happy we've got our hands around some of the key players that we are concerned about. But as I say, there is still a little bit more to do," Rowley told...

    The police and security services missed at least five opportunities over five years to stop Salman Abedi from carrying out his deadly terror attack, it has emerged. Following the deadly attack at the Manchester Arena by Abedi on Tuesday night, which claimed 22 lives, questions are being raised as to why the British authorities did little to follow up on repeated reports from friends and community members that Abedi was radicalised and had expressed support for suicide bombing. The reports date back five years, when two youth workers are said to have phoned an anti-terrorism hotline to report concerns over...
