    According to an Austrian publication, the parents of Samra Kesinovic have received bad news. Their daughter, who was radicalized in Vienna, ran away to join ISIS fighters in Syria when she was just 17. Her friend, Sabina Selimovic, was 15 when she disappeared. Both girls were the children of Bosnian refugees who had fled to Austria during the Chechen war. The two girls later appeared on social media, carrying Kalashnikov rifles and surrounded by armed ISIS militants. Their pictures were used as a recruitment tool for other young women who would also leave home to become ISIS brides. About a...

    Last week, the Obama White House moved to ensure Hezbollah’s ability to point 100,000 missiles at Israel. That’s not how they would describe it, of course. But it was the Obama administration—as U.S. officials are quietly letting on—and not Russia that invited Iran to participate in talks in Vienna to resolve the Syrian civil war. By doing so, the White House legitimized the Islamic Republic as a “stakeholder” whose interests in Syria must be respected. But of course, Iran has only one interest in Syria, which is to protect its ally, Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, whose regime facilitates the transfer...

Still others, two men. All couples are complete with hearts.

    VIENNA: The CIA, using a double-agent Russian scientist, may have handed a blueprint for a nuclear bomb to Iran. State of War by James Risen, the New York Times reporter who exposed the Bush administration's controversial domestic spying operation, claims the plans contained fatal flaws designed to derail Tehran's nuclear drive. But the deliberate errors were so rudimentary they would have been easily fixed by sophisticated Russian nuclear scientists, the book said. The operation, which took place during the Clinton administration in early 2000, was codenamed Operation Merlin and "may have been one of the most reckless operations in...

Some media claimed last summer Vienna officials considered banning guests at public swimming pools from wearing baggy Bermudas as they take around 2.5 litres of water with them every time they get out of the pool after a...

    The Internet has been abuzz with reports that Cardinal Christoph Schonborn of Vienna, Austria has made some rather unusual statements.

The investigation wasn’t held, but Groer was soon replaced as the cardinal archbishop of Vienna by Schonborn himself. (Read about Groer here.) He’s also allegedly said...

    As the biggest night in Austria's social calendar, the annual Vienna Opera Ball draws royalty and aristocrats from around the continent to Austria's capital.

Wearing a baby blue strapless ballgown and dripping with diamonds, Jordan lived out her princess fantasies as she arrived as the guests of Austrian entrepreneurs Irene and Alexander Mayer.

"Hitler is a monster. There is no question. I have no empathy for Hitler at all. He was a crazy psychopath," Stone told reporters...
