Israeli fire kills seven during Gaza raid targeting Hamas commander: Hamas

Israeli fire kills seven during Gaza raid targeting Hamas commander: HamasIsraeli forces killed seven Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on Sunday in an undercover raid targeting a Hamas commander and air strikes that provided cover for the troops to escape back into Israel by car, Hamas said. The Israeli incursion and air attacks drew rocket fire from the Hamas-controlled enclave, with sirens sounding in Israeli communities along the border. The violence prompted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to cut short a visit to Paris, where he had been gathering with world leaders for a World War One commemoration.

US indicts seven Russian military intel agents in global hacking conspiracy

US indicts seven Russian military intel agents in global hacking conspiracyThe US Justice Department Thursday indicted seven agents of Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency as part of a joint crackdown with Western allies on a series of major hacking plots attributed to Moscow. The indictments were announced as Dutch security services said they had thwarted a cyber attack on the global chemical weapons watchdog, the OPCW — expelling four Russian agents — and after Britain and Australia blamed the GRU for plots that notably targeted the US Democratic Party and global sports bodies. John Demers, US Assistant Attorney General for National Security, confirmed the seven agents were indicted in connection to the attack on the OPCW, on football’s governing body FIFA and the US and global anti-doping agencies, and on the US nuclear energy company Westinghouse among others.

US charges seven Russian intelligence officers linked to global cyber hack of doping agencies and other organisations

US charges seven Russian intelligence officers linked to global cyber hack of doping agencies and other organisationsThe US Department of Justice has charged seven Russian military intelligence officers with hacking anti-doping agencies and other organisations. An indictment announced in Washington on Thursday said Russia’s military intelligence agency, known as the GRU, targeted the hacking victims because they had publicly supported a ban on Russian athletes in international sports competitions and because they had condemned Russia’s state-sponsored athlete doping program. Prosecutors said the Russians also targeted a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company and an international organisation that was investigating chemical weapons in Syria and the poisoning of a former GRU officer.

Indonesia teen rescued after seven weeks adrift at sea

Indonesia teen rescued after seven weeks adrift at seaAn Indonesian teenager survived seven weeks adrift at sea after his tiny fishing trap lost its moorings and ended up some 2,500 kilometres (1,500 miles) away in waters near the Pacific island of Guam, his family said Monday. Aldi Novel Adilang’s harrowing tale began in mid-July when the 18-year-old was working solo on a fishing hut anchored about 125 kilometres (77 miles) off Indonesia’s Sulawesi island. The floating fishing trap, known as a rompong, had no engine or paddles and was anchored to the seabed with a long rope, but heavy winds knocked it off its moorings and sent Adilang out to sea, local media said.

Seven dead in New Mexico after Greyhound bus collides with truck

Seven dead in New Mexico after Greyhound bus collides with truckSeven people were killed in New Mexico on Thursday after a Greyhound passenger bus collided head-on with a semi-trailer truck that jumped a highway median strip, state police said. A tire blew out on the eastbound truck, which jumped the grass median to hit the bus travelling in the opposite direction, police officer Ray Wilson told a news conference. The bus was carrying 49 passengers, a Greyhound spokeswoman said. It collided with the truck around 12 pm on Interstate 40 near the city of Thoreau, about 100 miles west of Albuquerque, the state police said. All but six of those on the bus were taken to nearby hospitals, said Wilson, adding that their injuries were minor and treated at the site. Injuries to the driver of the semi-trailer truck were not life threatening, state police said. Greyhound Lines spokeswoman Crystal Booker said the bus was headed from Albuquerque to Phoenix, but deferred comment on the crash to the state police. The National Transportation Safety Board said a team of its investigators would arrive on the scene early on Friday. The truck blew a tire, sending the rig across the median and into oncoming traffic where it smashed into the bus Credit: AP Investigators were uncertain of the truck's cargo, but Wilson said: "There are a lot of vegetables" at the crash site. He did not know if speed was a contributing factor to the crash. Eric Huff was heading to the Grand Canyon with his girlfriend when they came across the crash. Huff said the semi's trailer was upside down and "shredded to pieces," and the front of the Greyhound bus was smashed, with many of the seats pressed together. Part of the side of the bus was torn off, he said. "It was an awe-inspiring terrible scene," he said. Passing motorists described a chaotic scene with passengers on the ground and people screaming. Credit: AP Truck driver Santos Soto III shot video showing the front of the Greyhound sheared off and the semi split open, with its contents strewn across the highway. He saw people sobbing on the side of the road as bystanders tried to comfort them. "I was really traumatised myself, because I've been driving about two years and I had never seen anything like that before," Soto said. "I'm a pretty strong person and I broke down and cried for at least 30 minutes," he added. Gallup Indian Health Services received 37 of the injured, said Jennifer Buschick, a spokeswoman for the Gallup hospital. Six people with injuries too severe to be treated there were stabilised and taken to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque. Three of the six taken to UNMH were in critical condition but the condition of the rest had not been released, said spokeswoman Cindy Foster.

Seven adorable puppies were found stranded on an uninhabited island in Canada

Seven adorable puppies were found stranded on an uninhabited island in CanadaLet's start with something positive: Seven
extremely cute puppies have been rescued from the wilds of Canada, and are right now on the road (literally) to a better life. The circumstances of how the puppies came to be stranded on an uninhabited island in the Canadian province of Manitoba remains a mystery, however. Most of the obvious possibilities here lead to some troubling conclusions. SEE ALSO: Internet, why won't you let me live stream this dog surfing competition?! The saga of the puppy rescue began on Monday when a volunteer for Winnipeg's Norway House Animal Rescue called in to report their existence. The roughly four-month-old pups had been discovered by a local boater, Junior Cook, near Cross Lake, Manitoba, about 300 miles north of Winnipeg. "He actually heard them the night before. He and his friend were out and it was getting dark already, and they heard some noises on the island," NHAR director Debra Vanderkhove told the CBC. The two couldn't see anything other than shadows, but they returned the next day to investigate. Instead of wolves (their initial suspicion), they found seven puppies. The men left food for the lot of them and called the Winnipeg shelter. In the days since the puppies were first discovered, Vanderkhove made the trip up to Manitoba, picked up the lot of them — "They will be the
Gilligan's Island crew — four boys, three girls," she said — and, as of Saturday, is driving them back to the shelter. All throughout, NHAR kept the public updated with Facebook posts featuring photos and videos of the rescued pups. There are so many more on the shelter's official Facebook page. It's wonderful to know that these tykes are safe and sound, and headed off to be cared for before they're placed in homes. But in a Facebook message exchange with Mashable, Vanderkhove wants everyone to remember that the pups shouldn't have been on that island in the first place. "Today the focus is on the puppies and getting them to the shelter. We're still driving. And tomorrow is another day for the fight on investigating this cruelty."
