    Pic of victim Police Monday morning have said that three of the six suspects arrested over the murder of Arab teen Mohammed Abu-Khder have admitted to the crime, and have even reenacted it for police. The development came after one of the suspects admitted to the murder soon after being arrested on Sunday. After confessing he also apparently implicated several others, which seems to have led to the latest confessions. It comes as more information emerges about the circumstances of Mohammed Abu-Khder's death. An initial pathologist's report indicates that the teen was burned alive, with his body suffering 90% burns....

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) secretly assembled a terrorist “hands off” list that permitted individuals with terrorist ties unfettered entrance into the United States, according to document released by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa). The existence of a “hands off” list that permitted easy entrance for suspect individuals into the United States has drawn concern from Grassley, who released a cache of internal DHS emails detailing the list’s existence and discussion about permitting an alleged member of the Muslim Brotherhood to enter the United States. The emails—sent between U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border...

    WASHINGTON — The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings told F.B.I. interrogators that, as he and his brother plotted their deadly assault, they considered suicide attacks and striking on the Fourth of July, according to two law enforcement officials. But the suspect,Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, told investigators that he and his brother,Tamerlan, 26, who was killed in a shootout with the police, ultimately decided to use pressure-cooker bombs and other homemade explosive devices, the officials said. The brothers finished building the bombs in Tamerlan’s apartment in Cambridge, Mass., faster than they anticipated, and so decided to accelerate their attack to...

    The two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings were not licensed to have the firearms they used in several shootouts with police on Friday, Reuters reported Sunday night. The news that the suspects were not authorized to own firearms will likely add fuel to calls for tougher gun laws – an issue that was put on the back-burner last week after the Senate blocked the central elements of President Obama's gun-control package. Police say Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar, went on a deadly shooting spree Thursday and Friday, killing a university policeman before confronting local officers in...

    A suspected member of the Al Qaeda terrorist group, arrested in May last year in Germany, was found with a memory stick hidden in his underwear. Police discovered the stick contained a password-protected folder with pornographic videos inside it, but suspicious computer forensic experts thought there must be more. After weeks of analysis, they determined that one of the pornographic videos contained concealed documents detailing Al Qaeda operations and plans. The files were hidden in the video file through a process called steganography or concealed writing. The term steganography includes methods used for centuries, such as invisible ink, but now...

When she arrived at the courthouse to testify, a swarm of protesters led by Al Sharpton greeted her with shouts of “whore!” and “drug addict!” She was just a rape victim, an acceptable casualty of Sharpton’s beloved race warfare. “It’s typical of the left to make a convicted rapist a hero,” Susan Brownmiller told an interviewer in 1975.

The documents back up the Bush administration's claims that intelligence gleaned from captured terror suspects had thwarted terrorist attacks, but the visible portions of the heavily redacted reports do not indicate whether such information was obtained as a result of controversial interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding. Cheney's initial request in the spring that the documents be declassified was rejected by the CIA. Lawmakers derided his claims...

Among those held at Guantanamo is Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the attack six years ago in which hijacked planes were flown into buildings in New York and Washington. Five others are expected to be named in...

    SAN'A, Yemen - A Yemeni court convicted Wednesday 32 al-Qaida suspects of planning attacks on oil and gas installations in the country, sentencing them to prison terms of up to 15 years. Four others were acquitted. Six of those convicted remain at large and were tried in absentia. The prosecution had charged the group, all from Yemen, with forming an armed gang and planning attacks against oil installations with rocket-propelled grenades in September 2006. The trial opened in March and authorities did not disclose when or how they were arrested. Three of them claimed they were tortured and forced to...

    MARRAKECH, Morocco - Iran's standoff with the West on issues like violence in Iraq and Tehran's nuclear ambitions moved to an unlikely forum Tuesday: Interpol's general assembly. Iranian envoys at the meeting in Morocco accused Israel and the United States of turning the international police agency into a political tool as it considers whether to put five Iranians and a Lebanese man on its most-wanted list. Delegates in Marrakech will vote Wednesday on whether to issue "red notices" for six men allegedly linked to a 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people —...

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Managing Editor David McCumber has posted a blog item defending his decision to not run the photos of the two ferry passengers the FBI is seeking in order to question them about their suspicious activities on several Seattle-area ferries in recent weeks. McCumber says the paper didn't consider the photos news-worthy. I certainly have plenty of feedback to consider from the ferry photo issue as we go forward. I understand that people have a hard time with the concept that we get to decide what is news and what isn't, and what is fair and what isn't.Several people...

    The Seattle Post Intelligencer is carrying an AP report of a suspicious package found on ferry, but still hasn't published the photos of two men the FBI is seeking in order to question them about their suspicious surveillance-type activity aboard several Seattle-area ferries in recent weeks. The AP report in the P-I says the details of the contents of the suspicious package "were not immediately available, but the Seattle Times' report, by a Seattle Times staffer, says Trooper Cliff Pratt of the Washington State Patrol's bomb squad, described the package, found rolled in carpet in a ferry bathroom earlier Wednesday...

    Judge: N.O. Suspects Still Lack Counsel Published: 4/18/07, 4:26 PM EDT By MARY FOSTER NEW ORLEANS (AP) - An irate judge halted the prosecution of 42 criminal defendants Wednesday, saying the city's underfunded public defender's office isn't providing adequate representation. State Judge Arthur Hunter also ordered 16 of the defendants released from jail even though they have not made bail. However, he acknowledged that a state appeals court would not allow that to happen immediately. Hunter had ordered the 42 people freed last month but delayed that ruling until a hearing Wednesday. He has not dismissed the charges, most of...

    Suspects Arrested in Morocco Bombings Saturday April 14, 2007 8:01 PM By JOHN THORNE Associated Press Writer CASABLANCA, Morocco (AP) - Two brothers strapped with explosives blew themselves up near an American cultural center Saturday, and police arrested another three suspects - including one wearing an explosives belt - hours later, an official said. The attacks came just days after three suspected militants blew themselves up as they were cornered by police in Casablanca, and al-Qaida claimed suicide car bombings in neighboring Algeria that killed 33 people. The attacks have stoked new fears of Islamic terrorism in North Africa -...

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European countries should put on trial 37 suspects of the 1994 Rwandan genocide who are living in Europe, human rights groups said on Tuesday. They accused major European governments including France and Belgium of giving the suspects safe haven. Speaking ahead of the 13th anniversary of the genocide, when 800,000 minority Tutsis and moderate Hutus were butchered in 100 days of state-sponsored killings, rights group REDRESS and the International Federation for Human Rights said delays in putting suspects on trial were inexcusable. "Thirteen years after the Rwandan genocide, it is unacceptable that perpetrators continue to live freely...

    New Orleans Judge Orders Suspects Freed Friday March 30, 2007 10:46 PM By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN Associated Press Writer NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A judge on Friday ordered the release of up to 42 criminal defendants, saying they aren't being adequately represented by the city's financially struggling indigent defenders office, but he immediately delayed the order to mid April. It wasn't clear how many suspects would be released after April 18 if Orleans Criminal Court Judge Arthur Hunter's order stands. The order would suspend their prosecution but not dismiss the charges against them. Assistant District Attorney David Pipes said his office...
