    HONOLULU (AP) -- Honolulu's mayor says police are investigating a phone threat that prompted an evacuation of a Jewish preschool. Mayork Kirk Caldwell says police have opened a terroristic threatening investigation into Monday's threat to Temple Emanu-El's preschool. Caldwell notes that Honolulu is one of the most diverse places in the world. He says it's cowardly to scare people and disrupt a preschool. U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz says officials are working with local law enforcement and the FBI to keep Temple Emanu-El safe. He says the community needs to come together to beat back hate and anti-Semitism.

    A suicide bomber attacked Turkish-backed rebels just outside the Syrian town of Al-Bab Friday, killing 42 people in a major blow just hours after they hailed its capture from ISIS. The bomber blew up a vehicle packed with explosives outside a rebel command centre in the village of Susian, five miles northeast of Al-Bab, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The blast devastated the twin command posts and also seriously wounded a large number of fighters, the Britain-based monitoring group said.

    According to government prosecutors, a Florida man plotted to plant bombs in Target stores and the profit following the explosions by purchasing stock that he believed would fall.

"Barnett theorized that the company’s stock value would plunge after the explosions, allowing him to cheaply acquire shares of Target stock before an eventual rebound in...

    The only person convicted in the 1985 Air India bombings that killed 331 people is now free, Canada's parole board said Wednesday.

That condition has now been lifted and Reyat may return to a normal life, including "living in a private residence," parole board spokesman Patrick Storey said in an email. The onetime Sikh extremist, an immigrant from India, was convicted of making bombs that were stuffed into luggage and planted on two planes...

"We have not seen an increase in terrorist financing by Iran," Lew told the House Financial Services Committee. But Lew also acknowledged that he wasn't aware if there was any way to trace how Iran uses the cash. Republicans pressed him on whether the U.S. recorded the serial numbers on the bills that were shipped to Iran, but Lew said he did not know. The U.S. arranged...

In a crowded street in Baghdad’s Karrada neighbourhood, a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) was detonated after midnight, causing nearby dwellings to be engulfed in flames. Many residents were trapped inside the inferno and burned to death — it was estimated that merely 20 to 30 people had perished from the initial explosion. But investigators at the scene are now concerned with another potential threat: A new type of bomb may have been developed and used by the terrorist group. “We’ve never seen it before, and...

    The United States runs its air operations against ISIS in Iraq from Incirlik Air Base in Turkey. The base, used by other NATO forces as well, is not American. It is Turkish, and the U.S. needs government permission to fly from there. Since the 15 July coup attempt in Ankara, U.S. forces at Incirlik are essentially hostages to the Turkish government. The Turkish base commander and his aides have been arrested; U.S. personnel are confined to base; outside power has been cut off; and while the U.S. has been permitted to resume operations over Iraq and Syria, it is working...

    Experts say yes, and that Dallas is just the beginning A cop-killing suspect died Friday when Dallas police detonated a “bomb robot” at his parking garage hideout, using a possibly unprecedented policing tactic after 5 officers were shot dead. But are American police actually allowed to blow up a suspect? Legal experts says under certain circumstances, the answer probably is yes, though special considerations differentiate killings using robotics and explosives from more common defensive shootings. The precise details of the robot-bombing are unclear, and experts say facts are essential to the legal analysis, even if existing principles governing use of...

    Two snipers have shot 11 police officers - killing at least four - and may have planted a bomb in downtown Dallas. The two gunmen opened fire from 'elevated positions', picking off officers 'ambush style' as they manned a protest over the deaths of two black men, police chief David Brown said. A gruesome video shows a heroic policeman taking on one of gunmen, but being gunned down by the shooter before being shot again execution-style, from point-blank range. Both suspects have been caught and taken into custody, with one detained following a shootout with police. As they were detained,...

    A blast in Central Park severed the foot of a young man visiting New York from northern Virginia Sunday, witnesses said.

His foot was “all but gone,” one witness told the Daily News. Two of the victim's shocked friends described the ghastly sight moments before being taken away in an ambulance. "We don't know what happened. There was a small explosion and then dust," said one friend who didn't...

    Jodie Foster's film — reuniting stars Julia Roberts and George Clooney — makes its world premiere Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival hours before it starts rolling out in the U.S.; 'Captain America: Civil War' crosses $200 million domestically for a global total of $737.8 million. Jodie Foster's financial thriller Money Monster is eyeing a bearish opening in the U.S., where it is looking at a debut in the low-teen millions, if tracking is correct. Sony/TriStar insiders are being even more conservative and suggesting their pic will open in the $10 million range, thanks to another kind of monster —...

    Politicians should take careful note of the discontent in the street, as one woman from Dimona has as much voting power as the Prime Minister himself. She now represents many of the population’s feelings about how a young soldier has been dealt with. Those who wish to stay in power and those who wish to head a motivated army should have their ears to the ground instead of blaming extremist right-wing organisations and "twisted ideology.". A walk down the street in one of Israel’s major cities turned up the following comments voiced loudly in plain hearing range of everyone around:...
