The incident took place on the Champs-Elysees at about 08:00 local time, as the barriers were being put out. Officers opened fire on the car but the suspect drove away. The car was later found abandoned nearby. There is no suggestion of terrorism as a motive, according to the BBC's Paris correspondent Hugh Schofield. He says the car first hit a parked vehicle in the Place de la Concorde.

The FBI forgot about him until his son, Mohammod Youssef Abdulazeez, went on a Jihadist killing spree in Chattanooga. Just like the Tsarnaev terrorists, the media is digging into the background of this dysfunctional Muslim family. We have learned that Youssef Abdulazeez liked to beat and rape his wife. He even wanted to get a second wife to rape and beat, as permitted...

Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez of Hixson, Tennessee, had not been on the radar of federal authorities until the bloodshed and authorities said they were still searching for a motive. Abdulazeez was killed by police. Federal authorities were looking into the possibility it was an act of terrorism, but say there is no evidence yet that anyone else was involved — or that...

The attackers, who targeted the warehouse on the outskirts of the northern city of Monterrey, got away with a paltry 10,000 pesos in cash, or $650, sources close to the investigation said.

    I'm not usually one to share my blog on FR (I haven't FReeped regularly in a long time), and I wasn't sure if this should be posted in Bloggers or Religion. But I wanted to share my thoughts on the Charleston shooting, how it pertains to media coverage, homosexuality, and Christianity in current events, and what the Bible has to say about persecution in the end-time hour.

    A black drinking buddy of the white man accused of killing nine people at a Charleston church says the suspect told him a week earlier that he planned to shoot up a college campus in the city. The friend, Christon Scriven, told The Associated Press on Friday that he thought Dylann Roof's statements were just drunken bluster. Still, Scriven said he was concerned enough that he and another friend, Joey Meek, went out to Roof's car and retrieved his .45-caliber handgun, hiding it in an air-conditioning vent of a mobile home until they all sobered up. "He just said he...

    Each in his own way, each to a wholly different purpose, the pope and Dylann Roof, the suspected Charleston gunman, have hold of something major.

Meaning the virtually uninhibited choice that economic markets offer consumers: I'll have some of this; I'll have some of that. For the environment's degraded condition the pope,...
