An Israeli-owned bulldozer kills 23-year-old American woman Rachel Corrie on March 16, 2003, as she protests a demolition campaign that destroyed over a thousand homes in the Gaza Strip. Following the death of their daughter, Corrie’s parents filed a civil lawsuit against the state of Israel, asserting she had been intentionally killed—or that the soldier driving the Israel Defense Forces bulldozer had shown criminal negligence. That lawsuit was rejected by a Haifa judge in 2012, who found that the driver had not seen Corrie as she stood in the bulldozer’s path at the village of Rafah. The ensuing internal Israeli...

The woman, an elderly Holocaust survivor, was one of up to 150 hostages taken by Hamas following its surprise wave of attacks on October 7.

While FASTag was seen as a transformative step to overcome various toll hurdles, the initiative doesn't have everyone's blessings.

However, as such a drastic rule change seems far from simple, it has led to people taking matters into their own hands. Tired of paying toll tax, villagers in coastal Karnataka, used a bulldozer to construct a 'parallel' road to bypass the booth. The residents...

We can't stress this enough: Watch closely the specific, substantive moves of the Trump White House. Try to block out the white noise of outlandish statements and unforced errors, and the hyperventilating they provoke. Otherwise, you miss the big — and in some cases, radical — changes coming our way. In fact, White House officials tell us they welcome what seem like needless distractions, because it allows them to jam through transformative, disruptive ideas and orders without focused public scrutiny of any particular item. (Remember the justified conflict-of-interest hysteria?) Read the weekend papers, and flick through cable, and the unambiguous...

He is a 20-stone savage who has amassed a bloody reputation as one of ISIS's most unsightly executioners. The obese extremist known only as 'The Bulldozer' has beheaded unarmed men and amputated young children as part of the terror group's so-called 'Chopping Committee'. And just like Jihadi John, the ISIS executioner who was eventually unmasked as Mohammed Emwazi, the coward has never dared to show his face on camera.
