Neighbors also reported shaking following the blast. ... “We don’t know if she is safe right now, but we believe she is.

    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."

    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.

    In the aftermath of the Wednesday's deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida politicians and pundits alike are using the tragedy as an opportunity to push for gun control legislating and demonizing anyone who opposes such laws as evil, inhumane monsters solely motivated by NRA lobbying dollars. Given the immediate climate of scaremongering, it's worth pointing out that to this day, the deadliest school massacre was committed not with a gun, but a bomb. [snip] ... No government can provide perfect safety to all of its citizens. The reality of modern life is that killers have an arsenal of possible tools...

    The U.S. led anti-Islamic State coalition bombed the terrorist group 25 times July 3, Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) said in a statement Tuesday. The 25 strikes consisted of “85 engagements” against the terrorist group and spanned Iraq and Syria. The strikes come amid two large scale U.S. backed pushes in both countries. The U.S. is currently in the last phase of supporting the Iraqi Security Force’s military campaign to retake the formerly ISIS held city of Mosul. ISIS controlled the city uncontested for nearly two years and has put up a brutal defense since U.S. backed operations began in October 2016....

    Algerian flags mingled with Antifa banners as migrants and left wing extremists gathered on the streets of Paris to attack police and protest deportations in a “March for Justice and Dignity”. The event was nominally organised to protest alleged police brutality in the case of an individual identified in the media as Théo – but despite that individual speaking out against the escalating violence in France, marchers used the occasion as an opportunity to bombard police with Molotov cocktails and burning flares in extraordinary scenes on Sunday.

    A disgraced former reporter was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Friday for several bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers, Jewish schools and Jewish museums around the country. Juan Thompson, 31, was arrested in St. Louis by the FBI for making at least eight bomb threats and the cyberstalking of an ex-girlfriend. Thompson was a former reporter for The Intercept, and was fired after it was discovered that he made up sources and stories, including one about Charleston shooter Dylann Roof. The criminal complaint states that threats made to the Jewish establishments across the country by Thompson were under...

    As we watch America devolve into the same racially charged, anti-police violence we endured in the late '60s, through the '70s and into the early ‘80s, our father Frank Connor, forever 33, would turn 75 years old today, July 12. Thirty three year old Frank Connor and 3 others were murdered while scores were maimed on January 24, 1975 when the Marxist, Puerto Rican terrorist group FALN blew up historic Fraunces Tavern during a crowded lunchtime profiling, targeting and executing "reactionary corporate executives."  We were to celebrate my recent 9th and brother's 11th birthdays that very night.  Instead his mother's, wife's and the lives of...

    Shortened title. Full title: Now ISIS hides bombs inside teddy bears and toy trucks: Barbarians using improvised devices to target children as forces close in on Mosul In the war-ravaged town of Mosul, a teddy bear or truck is a rare treasure to a child. But these innocent-looking toys are actually the trigger for sinister booby traps that detonate as soon as they are touched. The ploy marks a sickening new low for Islamic State, who currently hold Iraq’s second largest city, as they can only be intended to target children. Adults would walk straight past them. These and other...
  • Bomb-making factory found in Brooklyn apartment of Columbia professor

    Police stumbled upon a bomb-making factory Sunday in the home of a Columbia professor who specializes in the spread of infectious disease - and are investigating whether he and his roommate have terror ties.

The frightening cache was discovered almost by accident - Ivaylo Ivanov, the man living with Clatts, accidentally shot off the tip of his left index finger and sought police help in the street about 1:15...
  • ‘There will be more’: Chilling 911 call after the Chelsea explosion

    A 911 caller warned of further explosions right after the blast that rocked Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood and injured 29 people, The Post has learned. “I’m looking at the explosion down the block. There will be more,” the unidentified male said, claiming to be standing at 23rd Street and Seventh Avenue in the aftermath of the terrifying incident, according to law-enforcement sources Sunday. The bomb appears to have been a pressure-cooker device, sources said. Investigators have obtained surveillance video of a person placing another unexploded device — a pressure-cooker bomb — that was later removed from 27th Street, the sources added....

    A commenter on Free Republic said it happened near Elie Wiesel’s funeral. I heard/read that a young man started climbing one of the boulders in CP when he stepped on something and it exploded very loudly. I believe he lost a foot and part of a leg. Poor kid. He seems to be very young and a good looking fellow. Not known if it was a firecracker of some sort or something more sinister. Happened near Elie Wiesel funeral. Don’t know if that was related.
