UPDATE 6-Norway mosque shooting suspect appears in court with wounded faceThe man suspected of shooting at people inside a Norwegian mosque on Saturday, and of killing his Chinese-born stepsister, appeared in court on Monday with black eyes and wounds on his face and neck. A judge gave police permission to hold 21-year-old Philip Manshaus in custody for an initial four weeks while he is investigated on suspicion of murder and breach of anti-terrorism law, the court’s ruling later showed. Witnesses said Manshaus entered the al-Noor Islamic Centre with several guns, but was overpowered by a 65-year-old member of the mosque, who managed to wrestle away his weapons in the fight that followed.

Unearthed NBC Footage Appears to Show Trump and Epstein Rating Women’s Looks at 1992 Party

Unearthed NBC Footage Appears to Show Trump and Epstein Rating Women’s Looks at 1992 PartyNBC NewsDonald Trump claims he never liked Jeffrey Epstein—but footage unearthed by NBC News certainly shows the two of them having a good time together.The 1992 video shows a wild-haired Trump with Epstein at Mar-a-Lago, apparently pointing at and discussing young women who are dancing close to them. The women were reportedly cheerleaders for the Buffalo Bills, who were in town for a game against the Miami Dolphins.While their discussion is pretty much inaudible, at one point Trump is seen pointing toward the women and appears to say in Epstein’s ear: “Look at her, back there.… She’s hot.” Epstein appears to agree, then Trump says something else that makes Epstein double up with laughter.The footage was apparently shot for a talk-show profile of Trump’s lifestyle following his then-recent divorce. The party was thrown a decade before Epstein pleaded guilty to felony prostitution charges in Florida. The rest of the video shows Trump dancing exuberantly surrounded by women.The video is from the same year in which it’s claimed Trump hosted a party with a guest list made up of just himself, Epstein, and “28 girls,” which was reported by The New York Times.Trump said of his relationship with Epstein last week: “I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him .. I was not a fan.”However, Trump told New York magazine in 2002 that Epstein was “a terrific guy” and “a lot of fun to be with,” adding: “It is even said that [Epstein] likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” Trump has refused to reveal what led to a “falling out” that he claims to have had with the financier about 15 years ago.Federal prosecutors indicted Epstein this month, charging him with sex trafficking and accusing him of using his fortune to “create a vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Secret Facebook group appears to show US border agents mocking death of migrant teenager

Secret Facebook group appears to show US border agents mocking death of migrant teenagerMembers of a Facebook group for US border agents reportedly mocked the death of a migrant child in custody and posted racist comments about congresswomen inspecting the facilities. In one post, the group of current and former border patrol agents referenced a news story about a 16-year-old Guatemalan who died in Border Patrol custody, with comments underneath such as "Oh well" and "If he dies, he dies." Another post contained a mock-up of the Democratic congresswoman engaging in oral sex with a detained migrant.  The existence of the Facebook group, named "I'm 10-15", was revealed by the non-profit news site ProPublica. 10-15 is Border Patrol code for "aliens in custody." The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency said on Monday that it has launched an investigation into the group, appearing to confirm that some of its employees were involved.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has drawn criticism for comparing the border detention facilities to “concentration camps” Credit: AP In a statement the CBP said it had been "made aware of disturbing social media activity hosted on a private Facebook group that may include a number of CBP employees." Members of the group also posted derogatory comments about female Hispanic lawmakers, including fake sexually explicit photo montages of Ms Ocasio-Cortez, who has been outspoken on the treatment of migrants in US facilities.  The members discussed throwing burritos at the Hispanic members of Congress who were visiting a detention facility in Texas on Monday. Border Patrol chief Carla Provost denounced the "inappropriate" posts in the Facebook group and the CBP, which oversees the Border Patrol, said it had launched an investigation. "These posts are completely inappropriate and contrary to the honour and integrity I see – and expect – from our agents day in and day out," Ms Provost said. "Any employees found to have violated our standards of conduct will be held accountable." Asked about the @CBP agents @Facebook group with derogatory and vulgar comments, @POTUS (who may not be familiar with what the questioner was referring to) replied: The Border Patrol — they're patriots. They're great people. They love our country. They know what's coming in."— Steve Herman (@W7VOA) July 1, 2019 The group was created in August 2016 and has some 9,500 members. ProPublica said it was able to link the participants in the controversial posts to seemingly legitimate Facebook profiles belonging to Border Patrol agents, including a supervisor based in El Paso, Texas, and an agent in Eagle Pass, Texas. The website said it has provided the names of three agents who appear to have participated in the online discussions to the CBP. Ms Ocasio-Cortez, who has been a frequent critic of the CBP, said the revelations would not impact her planned visit to facilities housing migrants along the US-Mexico border on Monday.  "There are 20,000 TOTAL Customs & Border Patrol agents in the US," Ms Ocasio-Cortez said in a tweet. "9,500 CBP officers sharing memes about dead migrants and discussing violence and sexual misconduct towards members of Congress," she said. "How on earth can CBP's culture be trusted to care for refugees humanely?" Now I’ve seen the inside of these facilities. It’s not just the kids. It’s everyone. People drinking out of toilets, officers laughing in front of members Congress. I brought it up to their superiors. They said “officers are under stress & act out sometimes.” No accountability.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 1, 2019 The New York representative also decried the conditions she found at the migrant facilities she visited. "It's not just the kids. It's everyone. People drinking out of toilets, officers laughing in front of members of Congress," the congresswoman said. "This has been horrifying so far," she said. "It is hard to understate the enormity of the problem." "We're talking systemic cruelty w/a dehumanizing culture that treats them like animals," she said. Border Patrol officials have said they are overwhelmed by the numbers of refugees crossing the southern US border. Arrivals of undocumented migrants have surged in recent months, with 144,000 taken into custody in May alone.

Israeli PM Netanyahu Appears Headed for Fifth Term after Close Race

Israeli PM Netanyahu Appears Headed for Fifth Term after Close RaceIn a race that had been too close to call for most of Tuesday, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared headed for a record fifth term Wednesday morning.As of press time, with the unofficial vote tally nearly complete, Netanyahu's Likud party and its smaller nationalist and orthodox-religious coalition partners looked to have secured a comfortable majority in parliament, besting the Blue and White coalition led by centrist former army general Benny Gantz. Still, both candidates claimed victory with official results still to come in the days ahead."This is a night of great victory. I'm very touched that, for the fifth time, the people of Israel have believed in me," Netanyahu said Tuesday night at the Likud party election headquarters in Tel Aviv. "I will start forming a right-wing government with our natural partners as soon as tonight."Netanyahu and President Trump have cultivated a steady alliance since Trump took office in 2017, and Trump has awarded the prime minister with politically helpful decisions to move the U.S. Embassy in the country from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and to formally recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights."He's been a great ally and he's a friend, I'd like to congratulate him," Trump said of Netanyahu. "That was a well-thought out race I can tell you."The president added an optimistic prediction for progress towards peace between Israel and the Palestinians.“The fact that Bibi won, I think we'll see some pretty good action in terms of peace,” Trump said. “Look, everyone said — and I never made it a promise — but everybody said you can't have peace in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians. I think we have a chance. I think we have now a better chance with Bibi having won.”
