Russian military vehicles 'seized in Ukraine' :: euronews, world news

_______________________________________________________________________________
Heavy shelling and fierce street battles are helping Ukrainian forces gain the upper hand over pro-Russian separatists in and around the eastern rebel strongholds of Donetsk and Luhansk.

The Kremlin denies orchestrating the rebellion. But near Luhansk, Kyiv claims to have seized two armoured vehicles belonging to a Russian airborne division, presented as proof of Moscow' involvement.

"In one of the cars, a complete package of documents was found - a driver' licence and military documents," said Ukrainian National Security Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko.

His claims have been dismissed by Russia' Defence Ministry.

Tightening the noose around the main rebel bastions comes at a cost. T

JIHAD IN AMERICA: AMERICAN MUSLIM KILLS FOUR AMERICANS AS JIHAD REVENGE IN NEW JERSEY AND CALIFORNIA

_______________________________________________________________________________
WEST ORANGE - The man accused of gunning down a Livingston teenager in his car earlier this summer told investigators the murder was an act of retribution for U.S. military action against Muslims in the Middle East.

According to court documents filed Wednesday in Washington state, where he is accused of killing three other men, Ali Muhammad Brown said he considered it his mission to murder 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin as an act of "vengeance" for innocent lives lost in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran.

"All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life," he told detectives, according to the documents.

Brown, 29, also confessed to killing the other men, all of whom, like Tevlin, were shot multiple times in isolated areas late at night. He described the murder as a "just kill" - carried out against an adult male who was not in the company of any women, children or elderly persons, court papers said.

Prosecutors say Brown is a devout Muslim who had become angered by U.S. military intervention in the Islamic world, which he referred to as "evil." He also referred to drug use as inherently evil.

"During the interview Brown also stated that, as part of his beliefs, if a 'man sees evil then he must take action against that evil'," according to court papers.

Microbial life found living on the exterior of the International Space Station, say reports - Scienc

_______________________________________________________________________________
Vladimir Solovyev, the official in charge of Russia' ISS segment, told the news agency Itar-Tass that tiny plankton and microscopic organisms had been discovered on the spacecraft's exterior, describing the finds as "absolutely unique".

However, the truthfulness of Solovyev s claim is unclear, with Nasa refusing to confirm the story. "As far as we're concerned, we haven't heard any official reports from our Roscosmos colleagues that they've found sea plankton," Nasa spokesperson Dan Huot told Space.com.

Huot confirmed that Russian cosmonauts had been taking samples from the windows on their side of the ISS, but clarified that they'd only been looking for "residues that can build up on the visually sensitive elements".

"I don't know where all the sea plankton talk is coming from," Huot added.

Although the reports from Itar-Tass have not been confirmed, the idea of life existing in the harsh environment of space (surviving cosmic radiation, freezing temperatures and zero gravity) is quite possible.

Hamas warns foreign airlines not to fly into Tel Aviv - Ceasfire Collapses

_______________________________________________________________________________
A Hamas warning to foreign airlines to halt flights into Tel Aviv was to take effect on Thursday as a six-week war with Israel spiralled into further bloodshed after truce talks collapsed.

The warning came as Israeli warplanes carried out dozens of air strikes across Gaza again on Wednesday in response to multiple rocket attacks on southern Israel, as nine days of calm exploded into bloodshed.

The UN Security Council later urged Israel and the Palestinians to return to the negotiating table to quickly agree on a lasting truce in Gaza.

In a unanimously adopted statement, the 15-member council "called upon the parties to resume negotiations to urgently reach a sustainable and lasting ceasefire".

The statement, drafted by France, was agreed after negotiations in Cairo teetered on the verge of collapse amid a fresh flare-up of violence in the war, which has killed more than 2,000 Palestinians since July 8.

The measure fell short of a full resolution, but diplomats signalled they would be ready to move toward a stronger response if the Egyptian-led peace track fails.

However the spokesman of the Hamas armed wing, Abu Obeida, said the group was abandoning efforts to negotiate a durable ceasefire with Israel.
