Police tape blocks a visitor´s entrance to the headquarters of the National Security Agency (NSA) after a shooting incident at the entrance in Fort Meade. -AFP WASHINGTON: The shooting incident on Wednesday at the headquarters of the US National Security Agency outside Washington does not appear to be a terror attack, an FBI official said. "There is no indication that this has a nexus to terrorism," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Gordon Johnson. Three people were arrested after their vehicle crashed at the entrance to the ultra-secret US spy agency in Fort Meade, Maryland, Johnson said. One of the three was injured and sent to a hospital, and the other two are in custody. Two other people ? an NSA police official and a bystander ? were also injured and sent to hospital, he said. Shots were fired early Wednesday at the ultra-secret National Security Agency, the US electronic spying agency outside Washington, leaving one person injured, officials said. Aerial footage of the scene from NBC News showed a black SUV with numerous bullet holes in its windshield crashed into concrete barriers at the main entrance to the NSA's headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland. The images showed what appeared to be police surrounding a man on the ground in handcuffs. "The situation is under control and there is no ongoing security or safety threat," the NSA said. "We can confirm there has been one person injured and we don't know how the injuries occurred," an NSA spokesman told AFP. The local ABC television affiliate put the number of injured at three and said a suspect was arrested. The Baltimore office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is handling the investigation, said the incident "has been contained." A law enforcement source told AFP that it was too soon to know whether the incident was an attack on the facility or otherwise. They are "still trying to ascertain the facts," the source said. "The president has been briefed on the shooting at Ft Meade," the White House said in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that has been affected." 'Puzzle Palace' The NSA is the premier US signals intelligence agency, eavesdropping on electronic communications and hacking computers of US adversaries and suspects worldwide, and also protects US communications and information systems from cyber attack. The agency was thrust into the spotlight in 2013 when former contractor Edward Snowden leaked details of its global surveillance programs, including its collection of data on Americans. Its compound, known as the "Puzzle Palace" - located about 32 kilometers northeast of Washington - is highly secure. In March 2015, guards at the NSA gate opened fire on an SUV which did not heed orders to stop, killing the driver and wounding a passenger. The two involved, it turned out, were men dressed as women who made a wrong turn into a restricted lane and may have refused to stop because, it later turned out, there were drugs in their vehicle. The leading US spy agencies installed heavy security at their facilities after an assault rifle-wielding man opened fire on cars waiting to enter the Central Intelligence Agency's headquarters compound in McLean, Virginia in January 1993. Two CIA employees were killed and three wounded. The man, Aimal Kasi, was eventually arrested and convicted of murder and executed in 2002. In 2016, a man drove his car into a fence gate at the CIA headquarters, claiming he was an agency recruit. He was arrested but was found to be mentally unstable, and only received 30 days in jail and a fine.

The incident on June 17, 2014, had claimed lives of at least 14 people and left over 100 others injured during an 'anti-encroachment operation' by Punjab Police outside Idara Minhajul Quran in Lahore's Model Town. "It was an incident, which neither had any planning, nor did anyone order police to shoot protesters," Rana told newsmen here on Sunday. "I invite Tahirul Qadri to sit with us and record statement after swearing on the Holy Quran." PAT-led APC gives Jan 7 deadline for resignations of Shehbaz, Sanaullah Qadri stepped up demands for resignation from Shehbaz Sharif and Rana Sanuallah after the release of the Model Town inquiry report Urging the PAT chief to speak on oath regarding the incident, he said they were also ready to prove their innocence. The PAT chief blames the Punjab government for the Model Town killings. "This isn't the first time we have been demanded to step down; efforts to create instability have been ongoing for past four-and-a-half years," the provincial minister said, maintaining that protest sit-ins, long march and rallies were all aimed at preventing development in the country. He said the nation has come to know of the reality of such people and his party would defeat the "conspiring forces" through vote in the next elections. Rana urged that those killed in Model Town incident should not be used for politics. Confirming his meetings with PAT leader Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, he said the PAT leader also came to Model Town to meet him. "The matter could not be settled with Gandapur; we want to compensate relatives of Model Town victims." He further said they discussed compensation after approval by the Punjab chief minister. The minister said he has immense respect for Pir Hameeduddin Sialvi, adding that a few individuals have been using Pir Sialvi and other scholars for the sake of politics. Criticising the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), he said Imran Khan would retire from politics in 2018. "Khan would tell tales to kids that once upon a time he stayed inside a container for 126 days," Rana said. "He would also tell them how he once demanded resignation from the PM." Model Town report The Punjab government, at the behest of the Lahore High Court, had made the report of the Model Town incident public on December 5. Police tried to cover up who gave orders to shoot: Model Town inquiry report Punjab govt issued commission report on Tuesday after orders by the Lahore High Court The inquiry report, prepared by Justice Baqir Najfi commission, says that police tried to cover up the facts regarding who gave orders to open fire on protesters. It adds that no legal opinion was sought from the Punjab advocate general prior to the start of the operation. The commission, in its report, also stated that on the ground, the standoff continued the whole night, resulting in minor injuries to police constables as well as PAT workers. It was after 9am that the DIG Operation arrived at the site, who called the SPs of different divisions of Lahore, and as a result the policemen started increasing in response to the swelling up of the PAT activists, the report says. The commission observed: "The level of cooperation in digging out the truth is that no police official from top to bottom, whether actively participated in the operation or not, did utter a single word about the person under whose command the police resorted to firing upon the PAT workers." Further, in its conclusion, the commission said, "It is shocking to note that everyone has deliberately but unsuccessfully tried to cover each other from possibly adverse legal effects."
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogAlastair Cook during ongoing Ashes 2017/Getty Images PERTH: Senior batsman Alastair Cook says the world has changed for English cricket in the wake of the damaging Ben Stokes affair, and warned the team cannot afford any more "mistakes". The star all-rounder is currently banned from the international game while authorities probe his alleged involvement in a late-night fight outside a nightclub. Cook, a former captain who will become the first Englishman to play 150 Tests when he appears against Australia in Thursday´s crucial third Ashes clash in Perth, admits his side has been slow to learn from the fall-out. Dubbed a "behavioural cleanskin", Cook senses England should have learnt their lesson months ago that standards would be intensely scrutinised in the wake of the Stokes scandal. "It has been a very strange thing," he told reporters in Perth late Tuesday. "The world has obviously changed for the English cricket team from September. We have taken a couple of months to really realise that. "These last two incidents have proved that. I´ve seen words written down, ´trivial misdemeanour at best´, but since the Stokes incident times have changed for the English cricket team." Stokes is currently banned from international cricket while authorities probe his alleged involvement in a late-night fight outside a nightclub Cook was referring to further off-field alcohol-related scandals involving Jonny Bairstow and Ben Duckett on the tour of Australia. "It´s sad in some ways because we have always been a bit different to football and been able to go under the radar a bit and enjoy playing cricket for England and enjoy seeing the country outside that," Cook said. But the spotlight was now firmly on England and its off-field antics and "it´s now down to us to adjust to it quickly and we can´t afford any more mistakes". ´Taking the mickey´ Experienced fast bowler James Anderson said while the Duckett incident was not malicious and a "bit of a non event", the tourists had to understand the current situation and act smarter. Duckett was fined and will play no further part in the remaining matches for the England Lions in Australia after he poured a beer over Anderson in a Perth bar. "The frustrating thing is that what was a pretty silly incident would have gone unnoticed before but now puts an unfair question mark over our (team´s) culture," Anderson wrote in a column for Britain´s Telegraph newspaper. "We are all aware that from now on even a minor incident will be seized upon. "I know Australia will use the Duckett incident as a way of goading us, or taking the mickey. Fine. The players have moved on already. Our main focus is getting back in the series. That is all everyone is talking about." With batsman Steve Smith shaping up as Australia´s danger man in Perth, Anderson said he would again try to get inside his "bubble", suggesting the Australia skipper can expect some serious sledging. "In the first innings (in Adelaide) I sensed he was more bothered about what Stuart (Broad) and I were saying to him, which was not very interesting," Anderson said of Smith. "As a bowler, once you get him out a couple of times you realise he is not superhuman," he added. "You realise ´I can bowl to this guy´ and that makes a big difference."
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogA screen shows the schedule times of United at Newark International airport in New Jersey, US, November 15, 2012. REUTERS/Eduardo Munoz/Files WASHINGTON: The US government told United Continental Holdings Inc it would not face fines after a 69-year-old man was dragged from a flight in April, a US official said on Wednesday, a decision that was criticized by a passenger rights groups. The Transportation Department notified United of its decision in a May 12 letter made public on Wednesday by passenger advocacy group Flyers Rights. A government official confirmed the authenticity of the letter, which said United did not comply with all aspects of the government?s rules on overselling seats. In April, a video went viral on social media of David Dao being dragged from a United aircraft at Chicago?s O?Hare International Airport after he refused to give up his seat to make room for a crew member. United said in a statement on Wednesday ?this incident should never have happened and we are implementing all of the improvements we announced in April, which put the customer at the center of everything we do.? The incident drew attention to the practice of ?bumping? whereby airlines deny passengers access to flights after deliberately over-booking them to ensure all seats are filled. United said it had an almost 90 percent reduction of so-called involuntary denied boardings year-over-year since May 1. Paul Hudson ? president of Flyers Rights ? said for ?the Department of Transportation to conclude that United Airlines? conduct did not warrant an enforcement action is a dereliction of duty.? He said the Transportation Department should have held a public hearing after finding United violated government rules. The Transportation Department for months repeatedly refused to disclose the status of its investigation into Dao?s dragging. ?No passenger should be treated like that,? Transportation Elaine Chao told a Senate panel in July. The department did not immediately comment on Wednesday. The government letter said United provided correct compensation for four out of five passengers on the Chicago flight but did not provide required, written oversales notices to Dao or his wife. United Chief Executive Oscar Munoz apologized at a congressional hearing in May for the removal of Dao, with whom the airline reached a settlement for an undisclosed sum. Airlines have said they routinely overbook flights because a small percentage of passengers do not show up. House and Senate bills under consideration include new passenger protections and would ban the practice of bumping boarded airline passengers.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogSmoke billows from the Resorts World building in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines June 2, 2017. REUTERS/Erik De Castro Update [02:50 AM PST]: At least 25 people were hurt, some seriously, as they rushed to escape, medical officials, including those from the Philippine Red Cross' local Pasay Chapter, said. Jeri Ann Santiago, who works in the emergency room at the San Juan de Dios hospital, close to Resorts World, said 13 people were being treated, but more were on the way. Most of the patients were suffering the effects of smoke inhalation and some had injuries such as fractures, she added, explaining that none had gunshot wounds. In addition, windows were smashed at the casino complex as police searched for the gunman responsible, a local police officer said. However, a police officer at the scene mentioned there were no more gunshots, responding to an AFP journalist's prior report of more gunshots being heard. The policeman stated the sound of the blasts was from the windows being smashed, but could not say why the windows were smashed. On the other hand, 54-year-old Gil Yonco stood weeping in the street at around 5 AM local time, since his daughter had been inside Resorts World on the second floor. Yonco's daughter had called him for help because she was getting suffocated by smoke. However, there was no answer when he tried to call her back. "I am very worried as a parent, I need to find her," he said. Ronald Romualdo, a maintenance worker at Resorts World, said he saw a woman fall from an upper floor while trying to escape. "Several people were injured," he added. Update [02:30 AM PST]: At least three more gunshots have been heard at the casino complex as police look for a gunman who had fired an assault rifle earlier, an AFP reporter on the scene said. Some windows at the complex shattered as the gunshots were heard, according to the reporter, about five hours after the man went into the casino and fired what police said was an M4 rifle and then disappeared. Update [02:25 AM PST]: "We are looking into a robbery angle because he did not hurt any people and went straight to the casino chips storage room," National police chief Ronald dela Rosa noted. The top security official said the suspect was "foreign-looking, a Caucasian, about six feet tall". However, the gunman may have escaped because smoke had obscured footage for CCTV cameras, he added. Thirteen people had been treated at a nearby hospital for smoke inhalation and fractures, hospital staff told Reuters. Update [02:00 AM PST]: "There hasn't been anyone shot... there are only injuries from people who tried to escape in a stampede or from smoke," dela Rosa said on DZMM radio. The gunman, however, was still on the loose after firing an assault rifle, the national police chief said regarding the incident at Manila Resort, which is across a road from one of the main terminals of the Philippines' international airport. Some people inside the casino recounted feelings of terror when the shooting occurred. "I was about to return to the second floor from my break when I saw people running. Some hotel guests said someone yelled 'ISIS'," Maricel Navaro, an employee of Resorts World, told DZMM radio. "Guests were screaming. We went to the basement locker room and hid there. People were screaming, guests and employees were in panic," Navaro added. "When we smelled smoke, we decided to go for the exit in the carpark. That's where we got out. Before we exited, we heard two gunshots and there was thick smoke on the ground floor." Update [01:50 AM PST]: While Daesh immediately claimed responsibility, stating "lonewolf soldiers" from its group carried out the attack, as per SITE Intelligence Group that monitors terrorist organisations, dela Rosa said police "cannot attribute this to terrorism". He said it may have just have been an attempted robbery, pointing out the gunman tried to steal the gambling chips. Update [01:30 AM PST]: National police chief Ronald dela Rosa issues a statement on the incident. "There hasn't been anyone shot," dela Rosa said on DZMM radio, adding there was no indication yet it was a terrorist incident. "We cannot say this is an act of terror? he did not hurt anyone," he explained. Dela Rosa said the man, who appeared to be acting alone, walked into one of the gambling rooms and fired an M4 rifle at a large television screen, then poured gasoline onto a gambling table and set it alight. He said the man then fired again at a stock room containing gambling chips and filled a backpack with them. The man then left the room and went upstairs to a hotel section of the complex, according to dela Rosa, who added that there are no reports of hostage-taking, although the gunman has not yet been caught. "We have cleared the rooms (on the floor of the hotel the gunman was last seen) but we don't see where he is," dela Rosa said. Update [01:20 AM PST]: A spokeswoman for the US State Department said earlier it was not aware of any US citizens being affected but was continuing to gather information. "We remain in close contact with local officials," she said, adding that US citizens were advised to exercise caution and monitor local media for further information. Update [01:10 AM PST]: Through Twitter updates, the Manila Resort management commented on how Philippine National Police is carrying out an operation to analyse the situation, but refused to share further information saying it "may jeopardise their movement at this point". The company added that it has "no official information as to the identity or affiliation of the persons responsible" for the incident. Update [01:05 AM PST]: Philippines police chief says as far as he is concerned, there is no indication that the firing incident at Manila Resort was an act of terrorism. Update [01:00 AM PST]: A gunman with an assault rifle entered Manila Resort's gaming area and set fire to the tables, the police chief added. Update [12:59 AM PST]: Philippines Armed Police was seen entering Manila Hotel near Resorts World, a witness told Reuters. Evacuated employees and guests of hotels stand along a road and watch as smoke billows from a Resorts World building in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines June 2, 2017. REUTERS/Erik De Castro Update [12:50 AM PST]: US President Donald Trump Thursday expressed sadness and sympathy for victims of what he labelled a "terrorist attack" at a casino in the Philippines capital Manila. "We're closely monitoring the situation," Trump said in response to the gunfire attack, which was quickly claimed by Daesh. "But it is really very sad as to what is going on throughout the world with terror. Our thoughts and our prayers are with all of those affected." White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer also tweeted. Update [12:30 AM PST, Friday]: Military spokesman Restituto Padilla said the police were in control of the situation and the army was monitoring closely. Policemen stand guard near evacuated employees of a hotel near a situation at a Resorts World building, in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines June 2, 2017. REUTERS/Erik De Castro Philippines Red Cross responded to the incident right away. Various people took to Twitter to talk about the attack. Original reporting [11:45 PM PST, Thursday]: MANILA: Gunshots and explosions rang out from an entertainment resort in the Philippine capital Manila early on Friday and local media reported armed men were inside the complex. The company mentioned that it is currently working with the local police to offer the best possible security to the visitors. Resorts World Manila said on social media it was on lockdown and the local fire department said a blaze was burning on the second floor of the building. "We ask for your prayers during these difficult times," Resorts World said on Twitter. Witnesses who spoke to radio stations said several gunmen were seen in the complex. News channel ANC said there were two gunmen, wearing masks and black clothes. The information could not be immediately verified.

REUTERS/Erik De Castro Pictures circulated on social media of the resort, close to the city's airport, showing plumes of smoke pouring from a building. A source at one of the resorts told Reuters that employees were being evacuated and declined to give more details. As the drama unfolded, dozens of police trucks and a handful of huge Special Action Force vans and armoured personnel carriers lined side streets near the hotel, casino and shopping mall complex. Heightened security The Philippines has been on heightened alert amid a crisis in the south of the country, where troops have been battling Daesh rebels since May 23. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte imposed martial law last week across the southern region of Mindanao to crush what he said was a rising threat of Daesh there. He declared martial law shortly after militants went on a rampage through the southern city of Marawi, which is about 800 kilometres (500 miles) south of Manila.
