Sarah Safi, 32, went to the store to buy some charcoal for a family barbecue, ABC 7 reports. “I might have made it 10 steps into the store and I hear the lady behind the counter say, ‘Ma’am, you need to take that off your face or you need to leave my store,” Safi said. She then began to record the exchange with the clerk on...

    ISLAMABAD—Pakistan's Supreme Court ordered the release on bail Monday of a hard-line cleric who had been detained since shortly before soldiers stormed his mosque in 2007, killing scores of people and energizing the country's Islamist insurgency. Maulana Abdul Aziz was granted bail while the court considers the charges against him in relation to the siege of the Red Mosque in the capital, Islamabad, his lawyer Shaukat Siddiqui told reporters outside the court. Prosecutors were not available for comment. Aziz was arrested as he tried to sneak out of the mosque dressed in an all-covering burqa worn by some Muslim women....

More than 100 people died in the army operation - she was one of only 30 women to walk out alive after soldiers went in. Following are excerpts from the interview with Rafia Riaz of the BBC's Urdu service. ..."They asked me to come...

    SNIPPET: "The latest generation of jihadists has never been to an al-Qaeda training camp. These recruits learn everything they need to know online." SNIPPET: "This change, however, is not restricted to the younger generation. Many of the older elements have replaced the Afghan-style dress and long beard with an appearance that avoids attention from security officers." SNIPPET: "Herein lies the danger from sympathisers and supporters of al-Qaeda. That community is now deemed more active and effective than actual elements of al-Qaeda, especially after the crackdown by security agencies around the world. Therefore, we believe that al-Qaeda is now paying special...

    With a pedigree dating back thousands of years, the vineyards of France have long regarded themselves as the toast of the wine world. But in a humiliating blow to Gallic pride, winemakers have been accused of trying to pass off their bottles as New Zealand produce to cash in on the popularity of brands from down under. Sauvignon blanc from New Zealand has soared in popularity A tribunal in Australia has ruled Loire Valley-based firm Lacheteau labelled its sauvignon blanc Kiwi Cuvee in a nod to the quirkily-named New Zealand and Australian white wines. The wine is currently sold in...

    NOUAKCHOTT, April 10 (Reuters) - Mauritanian police arrested a suspected al Qaeda militant accused of killing four French tourists as he attempted to avoid capture disguised as a woman, a government spokesman said on Thursday. Marouf Ould Haiba is one of four suspected al Qaeda militants accused of killing the French tourists during a roadside picnic last Dec. 24. Fellow suspect Sidi Ould Sidna escaped from police custody outside a courtroom last week, sparking a manhunt that has led to two fatal shootouts in the usually sleepy capital Nouakchott that have killed three people in as many days. Police arrested...

    Sterling, Va. (AP) - Loudoun County investigators are trying to find a bank robber - but this guy doesn't fit any typical description. The sheriff's office says the thief stood six-foot-three and was wearing a flowery dress, a dark wig and white gloves. He was also carrying a purse when he walked into the Washington First Bank in Sterling Tuesday. But the purse was empty on the way out, because despite passing a note to the teller and implying he had a weapon, the robber left without taking any cash. Anyone with information is asked to call the Loudoun County...

    Cheney lampoons Kerry's goose hunting outing SYLVANIA, Ohio Not even John Kerry's goose hunt today is escaping Republican political barbs. Kerry told reporters this morning he had bagged a goose while hunting in Ohio. Campaigning later in the Buckeye State, Vice President Dick Cheney laughed about Kerry's hunting trip, saying it clashed with the senator's voting record on gun rights. Cheney likened Kerry's camouflage jacket to "an October disguise." He told supporters that "the Second Amendment is more than just a photo opportunity." Kerry continues to deny claims by the Bush-Cheney campaign and the National Rifle Association that he wants...

    Immigration police on Sunday arrested an illegal migrant from Moldova, who disguised herself as an ultra-Orthodox woman, Ynet reported. The woman said she had been staying in Israel for a number of years during which she worked as a housecleaner in Jerusalem's haredi neighborhoods. In her interrogation she told immigration officers that disguising as an ultra-Orthodox woman helped her blend in the community and avoid being caught by the police.

    <p>This summer, Dave Hill got a refreshing break from the run-of-the-mill spam that routinely invades his e-mail inbox. Instead of hawking mortgages, penis-enlargement pills or weight-loss products, a message arrived that seemed straight out of a science-fiction novel.</p> <p>The anonymous e-mail offered $5,000 to any vendor capable of promptly delivering a collection of far-fetched gadgets for conducting time travel. Among the mysterious devices sought by the message's author were an "Acme 5X24 series time transducing capacitor with built-in temporal displacement" and an "AMD Dimensional Warp Generator module containing the GRC79 induction motor."</p>

    “Some of the biggest losses we have taken are due to Iraqis committing serious violations of the law of armed conflict and the Geneva Conventions, by dressing as civilians and luring us into surrender situations and opening fire on our troops,” General Richard Myers, Chairman of US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters days into the invasion of Iraq. Since then similar claims have been repeated by US-led forces, particularly in the aftermath of two successful Iraqi human bomb attacks against military checkpoints. The latest came from Pentagon spokesman, General Stanley McChrystal on 5 April in a briefing to reporters....

    LANDSTUHL, Germany When combat finally came for three American soldiers wounded in southern Iraq, it erupted with bewildering swiftness and it wore a civilian's guise. The soldiers, a Marine corporal and two army sergeants, told harrowing stories of their experiences Thursday at a military hospital here, where they are being treated for bullet and shrapnel wounds. They are among 24 soldiers who have been flown here from field hospitals in and near Iraq. These men were injured during two ambushes last weekend by...

    The NAFTA Scam It is now three years since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) became law. The results are in: NAFTA is a disaster for workers in the United States, Mexico and Canada. The U.S. and Canada have lost thousands of jobs because of NAFTA. Mexico is trapped in a severe economic crisis in which workers bear the largest burden as their working conditions worsen. The U.S.- Mexico border was a health and environmental disaster when the NAFTA agreement was signed in 1994. Today, the border area is worse because of additional health and environmental problems caused by...
