    Johnny Depp has issued an apology for a controversial comment about President Donald Trump, asking, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” “It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone,” the actor said in a statement to People on Friday. Depp’s joke, in reference to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865, was made during an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival. “I want to qualify, I

    Jerusalem, Israel --- March 24, 2013 … Russian media sources have confirmed that Syria President Bashar Assad was shot by an Iranian bodyguard Saturday night. "The lone assassination pumped several bullets at point blank range into Assad," said the source. "Assad was rushed to Al-Shami Hospital in Damascus in critical condition. He died on the operating table from heart failure resulting from massive blood loss." An Israeli security analyst believes the report to be accurate. "In the last 24 hours have we seen Assad? Any photographs or video? No. Nor will we see any as loyalists who are closest to...

    BEIRUT, Feb 19 (AFP) - Lebanese Defense Minister Abdel Rahim Mrad accused French President Jacques Chirac Saturday of encouraging the opposition during a visit to pay condolences after the assassination of former premier Rafiq Hariri. "When President Jacques Chirac came to Lebanon, he ignored completely the government, the president of the republic and everybody," Mrad told state Tele-Liban television. "Then he came to accuse, help the opposition to escalate and encourage the opposition to escalate," he said. Chirac demanded Wednesday that "light be shed" in the murder of his friend Hariri before paying his respects at the graveside. "The heinous...

    RIYADH, Feb 15 (AFP) - Saudi Arabia, with close ties to assassinated former Lebanese premier Rafiq Hariri, took issue Tuesday with French calls for an international probe into his death, saying Beirut's own judiciary is capable of doing the job. "The Lebanese people will be the one to protect the integrity of the investigation into this crime," said Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal after a meeting with his visiting French counterpart, Michel Barnier. Billionaire Hariri made his fortune in the construction business in Saudi Arabia, where he maintained close ties with the royal family, and he held dual Lebanese-Saudi citizenship....

    ROME Italian investigators are looking into a second ring of suspected terrorists who may have been plotting a chemical weapons assault on Rome. An Algerian, a Pakistani, a Tunisian and three Iraqis were arrested in early morning raids Friday. A group of Moroccans was arrested last month with a map of the U.S. Embassy and large quantities of a cyanide compound that experts say could have been turned into a deadly gas. The ring busted Friday is thought to be completely independent of the Moroccans, officials said, although both likely have ties to Al Qaeda's network of terror. Investigators said ...

    The international community in general and the European Union in particular have leapt to condemn Israel for its successful attack on Sheik Ahmed Yassin. Yassin was the target of an Israeli missile attack on Monday and is frequently described as the "spiritual" leader of Hamas. This was, claims the EU, an extra-judicial killing, one in violation of international law. It was not. Yassin may well have been a spiritual man, but he was no Francis of Assisi, tending his sparrows as Israeli missiles screamed into his garden. He was the founder of Hamas, an organization described by the United States...
