    LONDON, Nov 3 (Reuters) – Unknown assailants who opened fire on a gas tanker last week off the coast of Yemen were also carrying a “substantial amount of explosives,” the vessel’s owner said on Thursday, and a maritime source said it may have been an attempted suicide attack.

In an initial statement last week, shipping group Teekay said its LNG (liquefied natural...

    This is something the TV media are not reporting to the extent it is an explosive development. We know from media reports the two stolen passports were used by two Iranian Nationals. We have previously been told the passports were used to try and gain entry to Europe their final destination. However, if this report from the LA Times is accurate EVERYTHING changes and actually aligns with our theory of why the plane was taken.

    Evanston police are warning residents to be on alert after finding two bottles filled with a potentially explosive mixture outside two homes on the city's northwest side. The two bottles were initially found on Thursday by residents in the 2700 block and 2800 block of Lincoln Street, said Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott. The bottles contained a mixture of aluminum foil and a liquid containing ammonia that, when agitated, sparks a chemical reaction that could cause the bottle to explode, Parrott said. "If somebody is holding it or nearby, it can cause some severe injury," Parrott said.
