    As reported earlier — On Thursday, August 26th a suicide bomber blew himself up near the Abbey Gate at the Kabul Airport killing 13 Americans: 11 US Marines, a Navy Hospitalman, and an Army Staff Sgt and over 150 Afghans.

    Confusion reigned on Tuesday amid conflicting messages over whether a Ukrainian plane had been hijacked in Afghanistan. Yevgeny Yenin, Ukraine's deputy foreign minister, told the radio that the aircraft was "de facto hijacked" from Kabul airport on August 15, from where "it flew to Iran with a group of unknown passengers instead of evacuating Ukrainians". Yenin's own foreign ministry then denied the claims. Ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko told the AFP news agency that Yenin's claims "do not correspond to reality". "There are no Ukrainian planes hijacked in Kabul or elsewhere," Nikolenko said. The three planes -- two civilians and one...

    A flight bound for Dubai from Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka, made an emergency landing Sunday in Chittagong, Bangladesh, after a man attempted to hijack the plane, officials said. The Bangladeshi suspect asked to speak to the country’s prime minister before dying from injuries in an exchange of gunfire with military commandos, officials said. The flight, operated by state-run Biman Bangladesh Airlines, took off from Dhaka at 4:35 p.m. for the trip to Dubai via Chittagong. The pilot made the emergency landing in Chittagong about 40 minutes later, after a crew member reported “suspicious behavior” by the man, said Rezaul Karim, an...

    Burdened by guilt over her knowledge surrounding the case, Marla Cooper came forward earlier this year, claiming she had a 40-year-old family secret protecting her uncle, a man named Lynn Doyle Cooper. Marla Cooper said she was eight years old when her uncle, whom she called LD Cooper, came to her home, badly injured, for Thanksgiving in 1971 - the day after the infamous incident. He claimed his injuries were the result of a car crash. Later, she said, her parents came to believe that L.D. Cooper was the hijacker. Mrs Cooper never saw her uncle again after that day...

    Richard Russell, who dreamed of being in the military and once ran a bakery with his wife, was identified as the suicidal airport mechanic who stole an airplane from Sea-Tac International Airport and took it on a dramatic unauthorized flight, where it was chased by fighter planes as he attempted “stunts” in the air before the plane crashed.

    PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia — A Malaysian-led independent investigation report released Monday, more than four years after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared, highlighted shortcomings in the government’s response and raised the possibility of “intervention by a third party.” The report, prepared by a 19-member international team, reiterated Malaysia’s assertion the plane was deliberately diverted and flown for over seven hours after severing communications. Chief investigator Kok Soo Chon said the cause of the disappearance cannot be determined until the wreckage and the plane’s black boxes are found. He said there was no evidence of abnormal behavior or stress in the two pilots...

    With gun violence garnering unflattering national attention for Chicago, carjackings have quietly gone off the charts as well. While shootings and homicides are largely concentrated in impoverished pockets of the South and West sides, carjackings are occurring throughout the city, including the downtown area, Chicago police statistics show. Last year Chicago recorded 663 carjackings, nearly double the 339 in 2015 and the most since 2009, according to the department. And the numbers have shot up even further so far this year. Through Oct. 18, the latest date available, carjackings have totaled 661, nearly equal to all of 2016 and a...

New documents from witness accounts reveal that Arian Prevella, a flight instructor and the owner of American Flight Academy in Hartford, struggled with flying student, Feras Freitekh. On...

    A quick search shows that it happened in October of 2013. The shooting is done by the police officer in the grey shirt. The helmet video clearly shows the officer shooting the hijacker. Note that the revolver used by the motorcycle jacker had been placed back in his pocket.  The person with the helmet video is out of the line of fire by a few feet. The officer appears to be about 15 feet from the jacker when he shoots. The revolver used by the jacker is likely a Taurus or Rossi .38 caliber. Link to video ©2017 by...

    BREAKING: A man who claimed to be wearing a suicide belt when he hijacked an EgyptAir passenger plane and forced it to land in Cyprus Tuesday morning is “not a terrorist,” but a lovestruck “idiot,” Egypt’s foreign ministry said as authorities worked to gain the release of the last seven passengers and crewmembers still aboard. The man forced the EgyptAir Airbus A320, bound from Alexandria to Cairo, to land at Larnaca airport on Tuesday morning and demanded a meeting with his ex-wife, according to reports.

A second Cypriot official says there "seems like there's more than one hijacker." He says there have been no demands other than that police vehicles move away from the aircraft. Another Cypriot official said that...
