    British Prime Minister Theresa May lashed out at President Trump for suggesting in a tweet that Friday’s London subway terrorist had been known to police. May said that his assertion was not “helpful” and that authorities were still investigating the “full circumstances” surrounding the attack, which injured at least 22 people. In his tweetstorm, Trump referred to the attacker as a “loser terrorist.” “These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!” he said. “Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool...

    THE UK GOVERNMENT is facing demands to reveal the details of a secret flight through Scottish airspace which was at the centre of a plot to capture whistleblower Edward Snowden. The plane, which passed above the Outer Hebrides, the Highlands and Aberdeenshire, was dispatched from the American east coast on June 24 2013, the day after Snowden left Hong Kong for Moscow. The craft was used in controversial US ‘rendition’ missions. Reports by Scottish journalist Duncan Campbell claim the flight, travelling well above the standard aviation height at 45,000 feet and without a filed flight plan, was part of a...

    Egyptian officials reportedly detained 17 airport employees Tuesday, hours after the head of Russia's security service said that the crash of a passenger plane over the Sinai Peninsula last month that killed all 224 people on board was an act of terrorism. . . . "There's no statute of limitations for this, we need to know all of their names," Putin said. "We're going to look for them everywhere wherever they are hiding. We will find them in any place on Earth and punish them."

    Security services fear British-born jihadis could be behind the Russian plane crash after they picked up terrorists with Birmingham and London accents celebrating disaster, it has been reported. Investigations are increasingly pointing towards a bomb causing the Metrojet flight to disintegrate in mid-air. And now it has been claimed spies at GCHQ picked up British accents among extremist "chatter" on the airwaves in the Egyptian region in the aftermath of the tragedy. A source told the Sunday Express: "There has also been some internet traffic suggesting that there was British involvement in the attack. "This was a very sophisticated, carefully...

    Sputnik ^ | 11/06/2015 | Finian Cunningham
    British officials have made an unseemly leap to speculate on a terrorist plot in the Russian airliner crash over Sinai last weekend. And Russia has understandably reacted furiously to the speculation, saying that it is too early to make such an assessment when crash investigators have not even compiled, let alone evaluated, evidence. American officials, including President Barack Obama, are also now echoing the British claims of a bomb on the plane. The question is: why the haste? ........................... Cameron and Obama are evidently being fed intelligence assessments of a bomb being stowed in the airplane's hold by terrorists. But...

    Press TV ^ | November 3, 2015
    An American researcher says it is highly likely that the United States is responsible for the crash of a Russian passenger plane over Egypt this week. On Saturday, the Airbus A321-200 broke up in midair and crashed in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, killing 224 people on board. An investigation is underway to find out how the disaster happened; however, the airline has said that technical faults or human errors could not have caused the tragic crash. "New information from sources with contacts in the CIA are reporting that the US recently sold ships to Egypt in return for a drone base...

    Russia and Egypt on Thursday dismissed suggestions by Britain and the United States that a bomb was likely to have brought down a Metrojet flight packed with Russian vacationers coming home from an Egyptian resort, saying the claim was premature. A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Peskov, insisted that aviation investigators were working on all possible theories as to why the Airbus A320-200 carrying 224 people crashed Saturday in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, killing everyone on board. He said naming just one possibility was mere speculation.

    Unusual sounds were emitted from the plane that crashed in the Sinai Peninsula last week, according to a transcript of the cockpit recording obtained by the Russian news agency Interfax. An international investigation into the cause of the crash is currently underway and investigators are analysing the two flight data recorders for vital information about the last few moments of the flight. Interfax reports that it has obtained a transcript of one of the recordings, though this has not yet been independently verified. An unnamed source quoted by the agency said "sounds uncharacteristic of routine flight were recorded preceding the...

    A bomb that downed a Russian plane in Egypt last month had been placed in the aircraft's main cabin not in the cargo compartment as reported earlier, the daily Kommersant said on Wednesday citing an unnamed source. The newspaper, citing a source close to the investigation of the crash, said the epicenter of the explosion appeared to have been at the rear of the cabin near the tail section. "According to a preliminary version, the bomb could have been laid under the passenger seat by the window. Its operation has led to the destruction of the frame and depressurization of...

    Muslim children as young as five have become so indoctrinated by Islamist propaganda they believe Christmas is sinful, Britain’s most senior Muslim police officer warned yesterday. Scotland Yard commander Mak Chishty said children had voiced opposition to marking the festive holiday—branding it “haram”, which means forbidden by their god Allah. He said that parents need to address “all the ugly bit of the problem”, and ask how children had come to that view. Mr. Chishty also warned of a need for parents to spot early signs of radicalization, which could include their sons and daughters refusing to shop in certain...

    When Robbie Mullen planted an innocent peck on his girlfriend’s cheek over Sunday lunch, he never imagined it would see him bundled into a police van and warned about his behavior. Mr. Mullen’s romantic gesture offended one diner so much that she complained to staff, who then asked the civil engineer and his partner Natalie Potter to move tables. When he refused, the 43-year-old said he was “shocked” to see four police officers arrive and march him outside where he was told he was not welcome in the restaurant. …

    The MI6 spy found dead in a bag three years ago probably locked himself in the holdall and died as a result of a tragic accident, Scotland Yard has said. Outlining the results of a three-year investigation on Wednesday, the Metropolitan police said Gareth Williams most likely died alone in his flat. But Detective Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt said the police could not "fundamentally and beyond doubt" rule out the possibility that a third party was involved in his death. Williams's naked body was found in the padlocked bag, with the keys discovered under his body, in the otherwise empty...
