    ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) - Asheville Police said they detained a person of interest after an explosive device was found at the Asheville Regional Airport.

Police later confirmed the package was, in fact, explosive and had been rendered safe by the bomb squad. The airport was briefly evacuated, but the terminal reopened just before 9 a.m. The FBI released a statement about...

According to a statement, CBP notified Canadian Air Transport Security Authority officials who "swabbed the mock IED for explosives with a negative result."

    ISIS previously has used commerical, off-the-shelf drones for surveillance and to deliver ordnance, and now it is is using drones to deliver explosives, Colonel John Dorrian, the spokesman for U.S. military operations in Iraq, told reporters on Wednesday. He confirmed that one enemy drone exploded after it was shot down: “We know that there was an improvised device on a — on a — a drone. And when that was brought back to the camp, it exploded. So, the reason or the way or the manner in which that happened — still digging into that.” Dorrian said the drones have...

    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is thrilled beyond belief that New York and New Jersey experienced bombings over the weekends. His rationale? At least they didn’t use guns. Can you believe someone could be so stupid to say something like that? How does this child hold down a steady job? Even for a liberal network, it’s ridiculous they allow this sort of thing. I’m not mincing words, either. Read his tweets.

    WASHINGTON Residue from an explosive compound found at the scene of an explosion in a New York City neighborhood is unregulated and routinely used for target practice with exploding targets. The compound, known by the brand name Tannerite, is sold in sporting goods stores. It is not regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives because it is sold as a mix of two chemicals that when kept separate are inert.

    "The New York City Police Department said the explosion in Chelsea Saturday night that injured dozens of people was "definitely" a bomb, with components indicative of an IED being found at the blast site." NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill said investigators are working to determine the motivation behind the bombing and find out who did it. He described the multi-agency effort as a "very complex post-blast investigation." "We definitely had a bombing last night on 23rd Street and we had a suspicious device on 27th Street," O'Neill said.

The footage, which has not been verified, shows members of the Free Syrian Army gathering around a camera. The eight men are seen sitting in front of a rebel flag as they sing into a microphone, with two rifles propped up in front of them.

    Little scant coverage has been given to the story of doctor Mark Samir Sawaf. He was a LPCC Psychotherapist in Kentucky USA. This was his public image. His private life was more sinister than you can imagine. What the media is not telling you about this case was that Sawaf was a Muslim and a terrorist before he was gunned down in Kentucky for an alleged crime. Samir Sawaf set up IED’s and pipe bombs in Kentucky, USA. While his story gained local coverage in Kentucky, the reason is that the media forgot to tell the public that the family...

    The man wearing all black is initially seen in the security footage from June 18 blending in like any other shopper. But, authorities say, he didn’t come to the store to shop, but to build a chemical weapon. “This is a very bizarre case,” said Eric Sonstegard, the Oxnard Assistant Police Chief. Detectives identified the suspect as Martin Reyes. They say he went to the store after conducting research online on how to build a deadly chemical weapon. Once inside the store, police said the man assembled all of the ingredients from store shelves, which included some kind of electronic...

    A blast in Central Park severed the foot of a young man visiting New York from northern Virginia Sunday, witnesses said. The NYPD’s bomb squad was investigating the area of the park near E. 68th St. and Fifth Ave. Witnesses said the victim stepped on a device or fireworks, causing the blast. His foot was “all but gone,” one witness told the Daily News. Two of the victim's shocked friends described the ghastly sight moments before being taken away in an ambulance. "We don't know what happened. There was a small explosion and then dust," said one friend who didn't...

    On the afternoon of March 12, 2014, Jennifer Collins checked her phone and found a message from her husband, Dave Collins, a retired Navy SEAL. He’d texted to say that she should pick up their son from kindergarten, and then this: “So sorry baby. I love you all.” Hours later, two police officers showed up at their house in Virginia Beach with news that Dave, 45, had shot himself in his truck a few miles away. Although Jennifer had held out hope for any other explanation, she also knew the moment she read it what the text meant. For months,...

    This was originally written for Deadspin's Blood Week, but shit happens and we're running it now. A 20-pound jug of homemade explosives will take off one or both legs somewhere between the knee and hip, perhaps breaking the pelvis and shattering vertebrae as the shockwave travels up through the skeleton. After our first Marine was wounded this way—let's call him Patient Zero—he was stabilized by his squad's hospital corpsman and flown to the trauma center, a British base that abuts Camp Leatherneck, the hub for Marine operations in southwest Afghanistan. At the time I was running a forward combat aid...

    The Obama administration announced Thursday the latest release of terrorists from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. One of the men, a Bosnian named Tariq Mahmoud Ahmed al-Sawah, admitted to being a member of al-Qaida and developed explosives for the terror group to target U.S. military personnel and civilians, the Free Beacon reported. The Hill first reported the release and transfer of al-Sawah back to Bosnia. Al-Sawah developed explosives and trained al-Qaida operatives in how to use them, according to his file, which was published by the New York Times. “Detainee is an admitted member of al-Qaida who developed...

    Though some in law enforcement are concerned about the potential for an attack, other terror experts downplayed the risk. “It has not been in the jihadists’ playbook,” said Brian Jenkins, a senior adviser at Rand Corp. and a top official with Mineta Transportation Institute. Therein lies the problem. Jihadists are not going to repeat the same attacks in the same way. There strategy is not to do that. The idea that this is not a threat because they haven’t done it before is beyond stupid. And if this is the thinking we can expect from intel agencies, we are doomed....
