    The Syria government forces have regained control of historic area of Palmyra, Syrian brigadier-general said. "The Syrian army regained control of the historic town of Tadmur (Palmyra) with small weapons," a Syrian brigadier-general told Sputnik. Thus, he emphasized that the town was taken without air assistance. Palmyra has been under Daesh control since May 2015. The terrorist group has already destroyed part of the ancient city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

    For years, doctors warned federal immigration officials: Do not take your eyes off Santos Hernandez Carrera. He had raped a woman at knifepoint and spent roughly half his life in jail, where immigration officials hoped to keep him until they could send him home to Cuba. As far as the public knew, the strategy worked: Until last month, the public sex offender registry said Hernandez Carrera, who has been diagnosed with a mental illness, had been deported. He never was. Instead, the Globe discovered that Hernandez Carrera is in Florida, one of hundreds of immigrants convicted of sex crimes who...

    "Most" of the hostages who have been holed up at an upscale shopping mall in Kenya's capital after it was attacked by members of an Al Qaeda-linked Somali militant group on Saturday have been freed, Kenya's military says. Kenya's armed forces launched a "major" assault on the militants on Sunday night -- about 30 hours after the Islamists stormed the Nairobi mall in an attack that left at least 68 dead and 175 injured. At around midnight local time, Kenya's Defence Forces said it had rescued most hostages and had taken control of most of the mall, but declined to...

    The revolutions that swept the Middle East and North Africa also emptied prisons of militants, a problem now emerging as a potential new terrorist threat. Fighters linked to one freed militant, Muhammad Jamal Abu Ahmad, took part in the Sept. 11 attack on U.S. diplomatic outposts in Libya that killed four Americans, U.S. officials believe based on initial reports. Intelligence reports suggest that some of the attackers trained at camps he established in the Libyan Desert, a former U.S. official said. Western officials say Mr. Ahmad has petitioned the chief of Al Qaeda, to whom he has long ties, for...
  • Gilad Shalit freed: Israel agrees to swap 1,000 Palestinian prisoners for lone captive soldier

    Israel has agreed to swap 1,000 Palestinian prisoners for a lone soldier held by Gaza’s Islamist rulers. The deal to release Gilad Shalit resolves one of the most emotive issues in the Middle East. Shalit, then 19, was captured by militants who tunnelled their way out of Gaza and forced him back over the border in 2006. The pact is virtually certain to improve the climate for restarting peace talks that have been stalled for over a year. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said yesterday that the deal was 'finally summarised and both sides signed'. In the Gaza Strip, a...

    PROVO — A judge ordered Thursday that a man declared incompetent to stand trial on charges of child sex abuse be released from jail — prompting criticism from Utah's governor. An "outraged" Gov. Gary Herbert criticized a system that would allow a suspected child predator to go free, saying he hopes his frustrations prompt the Utah Legislature to address the problem. Saying he had no choice, 4th District Judge James Taylor approved Lonnie Johnson's release, but said he plans to review the case in six months and wants two evaluations by new doctors when the case is reviewed on Nov....

    The Lockerbie bomber has secretly resumed hospital chemotherapy sessions in an attempt to beat his cancer, the Daily Mail can reveal. A year after Abdelbaset Al Megrahi was sent home to Libya to die with just three months to live, he is now making regular trips to a top medical centre for the 'very best care that money can buy'. (Snip) But the Mail has learned he is once again receiving help from cancer specialists, which his family hope will provide a 'miracle cure' and extend his life still further - possibly by more than 18 months.

  • Man who killed tourist and attacked his family freed for 'good behaviour' (Scotland)

    THE release of a notorious killer who shot dead a German tourist and then savagely attacked his family has been criticised by MSPs as another example of "soft-touch Scotland". James Boyce, 70, is to be freed after serving 17 years for killing Thomas Boedeker, even after being told that he would be locked up for at least 20. The brutal murder and Boyce's savage attack on the victim's family stunned the quiet community of Cairnryan, near Stranraer.

    Senator Reed's racist remarks are not out of place in the democrat party. Lincoln freed the slaves and was killed by a democrat and southern sympathizer. The Klan was formed in Al Gore's state by a good ol' boy and democrat named Nathan Bedford Forrest who slaughtered a company of unarmed black Union troops attempting to surrender. Reed is just one more racist in the democrat party. There's NO WAY democrats will Let THOSE PEOPLE ever get the right to vote!

    Two of the four leaders allegedly behind the al Qaeda plot to blow up a Northwest Airlines passenger jet over Detroit were released by the U.S. from the Guantanamo prison in November, 2007, according to American officials and Department of Defense documents. American officials agreed to send the two terrorists to Saudi Arabia where they entered into an "art therapy rehabilitation program" and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials. Gee, who would have expected "art therapy" to fail on terrorists?

    TIJUANA — Mexican soldiers freed three kidnapped businessmen Wednesday evening after an anonymous tip led them to a home in the Mesa de Otay area, authorities said at a news conference Thursday.

Based on information gathered at the home, soldiers went to a residence in La Presa where three more men were arrested. They are accused of participating in the attack on the Baja California Attorney General's Office in Tijuana early...

    LOS ANGELES - The former Symbionese Liberation Army fugitive who hid for years by posing as an ordinary housewife has been released from prison after serving time for trying to bomb police cars, corrections officials said Thursday. Sara Jane Olson, formerly known as Kathleen Soliah, walked out of the Central Women's Facility in Chowchilla on Monday, said Bill Sessa, a state Department of Corrections spokesman. In 2001, Olson pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 14 years in prison for attempting to bomb police cars in 1975 with the SLA, the group best known for kidnapping newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst.

    PARIS (AFP) - Accused French rogue trader Jerome Kerviel walked free after judges placed him under formal investigation Monday for his role in seven billion dollars of losses at Societe Generale but stopped short of charging him with fraud. Shares in the French bank took a battering as allegations emerged that a board member was guilty of insider trading related to the scandal. Kerviel was freed on bail after being placed under formal investigation for "breach of trust", "falsifying and using falsified documents," and "breaching IT procedures", said his lawyer Elisabeth Meyer. Judges rejected a bid to charge Kerviel, accused...

    BERLIN (AFP) - German conservationists on Monday condemned the freeing of some 17,000 minks from a fur farm, apparently by animal rights activists, saying they would starve in the wild. "It was a political act, and it has nothing to do with protecting the environment," said Joern Ehlers from the German chapter of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). "These animals are going to die of hunger." Minks are carnivores who feed on small animals and those freed from the farm in Grabow, some 100 kilometres (60 miles) west of Berlin, risked disturbing the ecological balance in the region,...
