    The United States on Tuesday offered a reward of up to $3 million for information about a former Tajik special operations colonel whom it trained in counter-terrorism before he joined the Islamic State militant group. The U.S. State Department announced the reward for Gulmurod Khalimov in a statement that made no mention of his training, which included attending five U.S.-funded courses in the United States and Tajikistan between 2003 and 2014....

    The crew has been herded to the upper deck and forced to stay there kneeled at gunpoint. Some crewman locked themselves in the radioshack. A search is underway, doors are being beaten out. We still hold the press-room from Spetznaz. We'll keep on writing on what is going on here. We don't know for how long the door will survive.

    The Obama administration has shelved the planned prosecution of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the Oct. 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, according to a court filing. The decision at least temporarily scuttles what was supposed to be the signature trial of a major al-Qaeda figure under a reformed system of military commissions. And it comes practically on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the attack, which killed 17 sailors and wounded dozens when a boat packed with explosives ripped a hole in the side of the warship in the port of Aden. In...

    Putin seeks to start anti-terror offensive Published July 5, 2006 MOSCOW -- Russian President Vladimir Putin asked parliament yesterday for the right to send soldiers and special forces anywhere in the world to fight terrorists, acting just days after having pledged to "destroy" the terrorists who killed five Russian diplomats in Iraq. Moscow confirmed early last week that terrorists had killed four abducted diplomats, beheading two of them in an Internet video, after Russia refused their demand to leave the breakaway republic of Chechnya. A fifth diplomat was killed during the abduction June 3. Russian security services last week offered...

How did you first learn about the plot? PW: I have a unique background. I...

    Glorious History of the Royal Canadian Mounted Spetsnaz The amazing history of the heroic founders and lineage holders of the Royal Canadian Mounted Spetsnaz. Warning: If you read this you might begin to worship these larger-than-life heros as gods. This is acceptable. 1917 It was the cold winter of 1917 in Northern Russia. A small band of Cossack soldiers were left to protect a secret store of vodka. Having helped themselves to an ample supply of the warming beverage this brave band of men became disoriented under white-out conditions.

    LONDON, England (CNN) -- Russian special forces carried out a "novel" attack to end the Moscow theatre hostage crisis -- but incurred a high death toll in its execution, a military expert says. About 750 people were saved in the dawn raid by Russian forces on Saturday, but 67 of the hostages died in the operation and a further 42 were taken to hospital, apparently suffering from gas inhalation. A sleeping gas was used to confuse and disarm the 50 Chechen rebel hostage-takers during the storming of the building, in which all of the 75 non-Russians and 25 children are...
