    Lesser charge may have been better fit, attorneys note.

    Twice over the course of four days, an 800-year-old church in Stockholm was firebombed. On Sunday, Jan. 24, 2021, several Molotov cocktails were hurled at the 12-century Spånga church, located in a Muslim majority area.

However, the fire was quickly put out by the police, who used a powder extinguisher.” The same church had been fire-bombed just four days earlier, on Jan. 20, 2021: two explosives were hurled at and smashed through...

However, it also found that Navy leaders could have picked up on a pattern of negative behaviors exacerbated by the "toxic" command climate at the base. In a 260-page investigation released Friday, investigators concluded that, while 2nd Lt. Mohammed Alshamrani, a 21-year-old Royal Saudi Air Force member, was motivated by...
