  1. Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been on a roll for the past couple of days. Be it sleeping on the field or at the airport floor or slaying the Australian team in the first ODI like a true boss, you can trust Dhoni to literally do anything and proudly walk away after the victory like it was child's play. We were not even close to exaggerating when we said that this man can do anything and this video is a proof of that. Well, it seems that finishing matches with his unparalleled and impeccable skills isn't the only talent he's got; this man has got some killer shooting skills as well. Yesterday, this badass cricketer visited the Kolkata Police Shooting Range to brush up on his shooting skills (after the team's practice session was cancelled due to rains) and we must say we are highly impressed. Kolkata Police shared a video on their Facebook page where Dhoni is seen firing a couple of rounds and even the police officers accepted that “his accuracy is breathtaking!” Kolkata Police in their post wrote, “Our inbox is getting flooded with requests of posting a video clip of MS Dhoni sharpening his shooting skills this afternoon at our range at Police Training School. Here goes.” Check out the video here. Reportedly, Dhoni even had an interaction with the Kolkata Police recruits and inspired them with his words. According to a report published in the Indian Express, a police official was quoted as saying “It's a state of art shooting range at PTS and Dhoni shot both in the 10 m and 25 ranges.” It was further mentioned, “It's great to host Dhoni for the second time. He's an extraordinary marksman and inspired us all.” In the first ODI, India defeated Australia by 26 runs taking a lead of 1-0.
  2. People gather outside of Freeman High School south of Spokane after a shooting on Wednesday. Image Courtesy: Seattle Times/KHQ via AP LOS ANGELES: One student was killed and at least three other people were wounded Wednesday in a shooting in a school in the northwest of the United States, according to officials quoted by local media. The shooting took place in a high school in the town of Spokane in Washington state, 460 kilometres (285 miles) from Seattle. Fire department spokesman Brian Schaeffer told local media that one student had been killed and that three others were admitted to a nearby hospital in a stable condition. The shooter has been arrested, according to the Spokane sheriff's office. Some media reported a total of six people had been hit by bullets, including the deceased. The sheriff's office said on its Twitter account that police were "going room to room, floor by floor. We understand parents are extremely concerned. We will provide info ASAP, please avoid area." Other schools in the area were closed as a precautionary measure.
  3. Last year, the box office was primarily ruled by Marathi movie ‘Sairat' and if the song ‘Zingaat' still rings in your head, then you will know that this movie's popularity is no joke. Well, fast forward to the present time and ‘Sairat' is still making headlines, this time for its Bollywood remake starring Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishan Khattar. Reports of the movie being remade in Hindi had been doing rounds for quite some time and will be produced by Karan Johar, under his banner Dharma Productions. © Zee Studios Well, in recent developments, according to a report in DNA, the shooting of the movie will begin in November this year and Jhanvi has already started preparing for the role, attending dance and acting classes. Time and again people have blown the trumpet of Nepotism in the negative direction, but that does not deter the star kids from showing what they are capable of. Apart from Jhanvi, Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan too is having her dream debut opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in Abhishek Kapoor's directorial venture ‘Kedarnath', shooting of which started last week. © Instagram/Jhanvi Kapoor Nagraj Manjule's film ‘Sairat' has already set the benchmark really high and the credit entirely goes to the exceptional acting of the cast and their interesting take on honour killing and caste system. While actors Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar nailed it in the original, it will be interesting to see how Jhanvi and Ishaan stand out in this film. The film talks about two college sweethearts who belong to different castes and the struggles they go through when their relationship falls prey to the stringent practices of casteism. Jhanvi will be debuting with this remake, Ishaan is a film old as he has already completed shooting for Majid Majidi's ‘Beyond The Clouds'. This film is being directed by Shashank Khaitan, who is known for making ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania'.
  4. DALLAS: A gunman killed seven people at a home in a Dallas suburb on Sunday evening before being shot dead by police called to the scene, authorities said. The shooting took place in Plano, a suburb north of Dallas. David Tilley, a spokesman for the Plano Police Department, said the shooter was killed by the first responding officer after an exchange of gunfire. The officer was not injured. Seven people were found dead in the Plano home. Two additional shooting victims were taken to a local hospital. Their condition was unknown. ?We?re trying to put all the puzzle pieces together,? Tilley said. There was no information yet on the relationship between the suspect and the victims. Local media reports that the shooting occurred at a Dallas Cowboys viewing party could not be confirmed either.
  5. ABUJA: Gunmen killed 11 people and wounded 18 others in a church in southeastern Nigeria on Sunday in an attack arising from a feud between members of the local community, officials said. However, police believe that a man the gunmen were hunting for was not present in the church and so escaped the attack. The attackers struck the church in Ozubulu early in the morning, said Garba Umar, head of police in Anambra state. They were believed to have been trying to kill a local man, who was not identified by the authorities. "The gunmen came thinking that their target was in the church but incidentally he was not," Umar said, adding that the violence may be linked to drug-trafficking. No arrests have been made, he said. Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano said the attack stemmed from a feud between members of the local community who were living outside Nigeria. "We are not going to relent until we bring those that perpetrated this heinous crime to book," he said. Nigeria is wracked by insecurity, with militant group Boko Haram having killed more than 20,000 people since 2009, sparking one of the world's largest humanitarian crises. Ethnically-charged violence is common throughout the central states and militancy is a constant threat in the oil-rich southeast.
  6. Attacks on churches are rare in southern Nigeria, where there is a predominantly Christian population. ? AFP FILE WARRI, Nigeria: Twelve worshippers were shot dead at a church in southeast Nigeria on Sunday, with authorities suggesting the bloodshed was due to a local feud. At around 6:00 am (0500 GMT) at least one gunman opened fire at St. Philip's church in Ozubulu, near the city of Onitsha, unleashing terror on the congregation. Chukwuma Emeka said he had just stepped out of the church to stretch his legs "when I heard gunshots and screaming and people running inside." "When the chaos subsided I went inside, I saw my fellow church members dead in a pool of their own blood and many others were screaming in pain." Attacks on churches are rare in southern Nigeria, where there is a predominantly Christian population. There were varying accounts of what happened in Ozubulu. Witnesses said five gunmen in masks stormed the church, but police said the killing was the work of a lone shooter. "So far, 12 persons have been confirmed dead and deposited in the mortuary here," a worker at Nnamdi Azikwe University Teaching Hospital told AFP. Several worshippers with gunshot wounds were also receiving treatment at the hospital, the source said. Witnesses said they feared that up to 20 people may have died. 'Feud' Garba Umar, Anambra State police Commissioner, said the attacker was a gunman who "went on a shooting spree, killing and wounding" worshippers. He said the violence was the result of a failed murder attempt, tied to a feud within the local community. "The information at the disposal of the police is that the gunman had been hired to kill a particular family person believed to be among the worshippers," he said. Local rights activist Emeka Umeagbalasi said his information about the motive largely concurred with that of the police version. The gunmen had gone to kill the son of a local chief but failed to find him at his home, Umeagbalasi said. The attackers then went to the church to hunt for him, but could not find the intended target and became angry, he said. They opened "fire on parishioners and shot indiscriminately," he said, adding that the father of the intended target was shot and wounded. Speaker of Nigeria's House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara called the attack "barbaric... the height of wickedness." He extended his condolences to families of the victims, assuring them that the government would do everything within its power to track down those responsible.
  7. A Kurdish Iraqi man armed with an M16 automatic rifle opened fire in a packed nightclub in southern Germany early Sunday after a dispute there, killing a bouncer and wounding four people before being shot by police. The 34-year-old attacker "was critically injured in a shootout with police officers as he left the disco, and later succumbed to his wounds in hospital," police said in a statement. "Nothing suggest that there could have been a terror background" to the attack at the club, said prosecutor Johannes-Georg Roth.suggest that there could have been a terror background" to the attack at the club, said prosecutor Johannes-Georg Roth. "Rather, everything points to a personal dispute that had escalated in an unspeakable manner," he added. The foreign gunman had been living in Germany since 1991, having obtained asylum status. He was the son-in-law of the owner of the nightclub called "Grey", and was known to police for previous violations including grievous bodily harm."Grey", and was known to police for previous violations including grievous bodily harm. Investigators piecing together the assault said the man had initially left the site after a "fight with an employee at the disco" and gone home to pick up the US-made M16 rifle. "He came back and shot dead the bouncer at the entrance area of the disco," recounted Roth, adding that the attacker sprayed the area with bullets. He then engaged in a shoot-out with police before being shot. One officer injured in the exchange of fire only escaped alive thanks to the titanium helmet he was wearing, added police. Officials saluted the bravery of the officers, saying their actions likely saved more lives as the "many magazines were found" at the site. 'Club was jam-packed' Officers began receiving emergency calls from terrified clubbers at around 4:30 am (0230 GMT) as the man began shooting in the nightclub heaving with "several hundred" people, said police. An unnamed clubber was quoted by Suedkurier daily that he was in the washroom when someone came in and closed the toilet door saying there was shooting. "I didn't believe it and went out. But I heard shots and quickly ran back to the toilet and closed the door with another person. With us was a bouncer who was shot and he was bandaging the wound with a belt," said the witness. A bartender then opened the emergency exit door, allowing revellers to flee, he said, adding that he saw another person with a wound in the leg lying on the grass by the parking lot. "I just shouted at everyone to run and when we were in the parking lot, we heard shots again," he said. The shooting in Constance, which borders Switzerland, came just two days after Germany was shaken by a knife attack in the northern port city of Hamburg. A 26-year-old Palestinian had killed one and injured six in an assault at a supermarket. Germany has been on high alert about the threat of a militant attack, especially since last December's truck rampage through a Berlin Christmas market that claimed 12 lives. But it has also been hit by other assaults unrelated to the militant threat. Among the deadliest in recent years is a Munich shopping mall rampage last June by 18-year-old German-Iranian man which left 10 people dead including the gunman himself.
  8. Brazilian elementary school teachers receive instruction on how to react in high-risk situations in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on July 10, 2017. AFP/Mauro Pimentel RIO DE JANEIRO: Teachers in violence-wracked Rio de Janeiro started a new course on Monday ? they are learning how to react to the shootings and violence plaguing the host city of last year's Olympic Games. Some 40 teachers attended the course organised by the International Committee of the Red Cross, and each educator will go back and instruct colleagues in their own schools on how to deal with a variety of violent incidents. "It's a question of knowing how to manage each situation ? how to react during a shooting, for example. These are simple courses of action that can make a real difference," said Lorenzo Caraffi, regional director of the ICRC in Latin America. Rio has more than 1,500 public schools, a third of them located in areas deemed to be at risk from violence. Since the start of the academic year, only seven of 120 school days have passed without at least one of the city's schools being shut down because of outbreaks of violence. Rio is in the grip of an increasingly bloody war between rival drug gangs operating in its favelas ? the poorer communities that lack adequate infrastructure or police, but which are home to a quarter of the city's six million inhabitants. Residents can all too often find themselves pinned down by gunfire, especially when the quasi-military police force battles with gangs in pitched shootouts. On Monday, as the first class on dealing with violence began, 18 schools were closed due to a police raid on the City of God favela, made famous in the movie of the same name by director Fernando Meirelles, who also orchestrated the opening ceremony of last year's Olympics. "The situation has really got much worse recently, so it's important to have extra tools available to deal with these chaotic situations," said Emiliane Tinoco, one of the educators taking part in the course. Tinoco coordinates human resources for schools in Rio's poorer northern zone where 13-year-old Maria Eduarda was killed by a stray bullet in her school on March 30. "Teachers know from experience that when a shooting breaks out, you have to lead the kids into a corridor and lie down. But they often feel very alone when faced with these stressful situations," she said. The daily newspaper O Globo said that 632 people had been hit by stray bullets in Rio between January 1 and July 2, an average of three a day. Sixty-seven of them died of their wounds. "We are not going to solve the problem from one day to the next, but we can't just do nothing," said Rio's public schools chief Cesar Benjamin. "Education is like Stalingrad ? it's the last bastion which must be defended whatever the cost," he said, referring to the World War II battle in the former Soviet Union.
  9. Sometimes, the most impromptu jam session could lead to the creation of unimaginable music. This was the case for Pune-based teen duo, Zephyr and Sayan. One uneventful day at the studio led to the creation of the music producer-vocalist duo's latest track, titled Only You. Better known by their stage name, Zephyrtone, the two who are born and raised in Pune are giving the city some of the best electronic music at the moment. The youngsters who bring to the scene a fresh pair of ears to music and create something unique to themselves, have been performing together since 2015, when their eponymous label came to be. With Sayan's production techniques and Zephyr's vocals, the two have got a good thing going, musically as they create an exceptional soundscape of covers as well as original tracks. © Facebook And their debut EP, titled ‘Shooting Stars' does all the justice to the musicians behind the music. And while their EP has taken the scene by storm, it's their latest release, Only You, that is our latest talking point. Compared to their previous releases which pack high-energy vocal and sets, “Only You” tones it down a few notches. An emotionally driven song, Only You brings about a sense of euphoric melancholy with a vibe that people can connect to easily. It is a simple track which speaks and deals with regular ups and downs that people face in a relationship and can relate to with their own lives. © Zephyrtone You can watch the video here: The music video for the track has already crossed 1.5 million views and over 10,000 shares on their Facebook page. To add to that, the Magnetiax Crew, the Semi-Finalist dance group from India's Got Talent went ahead and conjured a cool dance choreography for the song and it's worth a watch! We can't wait to see what these two have stored up their sleeves for their listeners in the near future.
  10. Eight people were wounded in a shooting in front of a mosque in the southern French city of Avignon in an incident police consider to be a settling of scores rather than a militant attack, a source close to the investigation said on Monday. Two of the eight wounded were hospitalised after the incident, according to the source, who also said that worshippers leaving the mosque had not been the intended target. La Provence regional newspaper, which first reported the incident, cited a judicial source as saying police are "not at all treating it as terrorist related" and suspected instead a dispute between youths. The newspaper also cited witnesses as saying that one of two gunmen with their faces covered had fired shots around at 10:30 pm as people were coming out of the mosque before the two fled the scene. Four people were wounded outside the mosque while a family of four in their apartment some fifty meters (yards) away took shrapnel, La Provence said. The incident comes after a man was arrested on Thursday after trying to drive a car into a crowd in front of a mosque in the Paris suburb of Creteil in an incident in which no one was injured. France is on high-security alert following a series of militant attacks in recent years.
  11. An arm patch of the Chicago Police Department is visible in this image taken as a screengrab from Reuters' video. CHICAGO: Three current and former Chicago police officers were indicted on Tuesday on felony charges of conspiring to cover up the shooting death of a black teenager by a white officer, prosecutors said. The indictments stem from a 2014 incident, in which Laquan McDonald, 17, was shot to death. A video of the shooting, released in 2015, sparked days of protests and thrust Chicago into a national debate over the use of excessive force by police against minorities. Detective David March and officers Joseph Walsh and Thomas Gaffney were each charged with conspiracy, official misconduct, and obstruction of justice, special prosecutor Patricia Brown Holmes said. "The indictment makes clear that these defendants did more than merely obey an unofficial 'code of silence,' rather it alleges that they lied about what occurred to prevent independent criminal investigators from learning the truth," Holmes said in a statement. A police union spokesman declined to comment. It was not immediately known if March, Walsh, and Gaffney had hired attorneys. A lawyer for the McDonald family did not immediately respond to a request for comment. All three officers were on scene the night of the shooting, Holmes told reporters. Chicago police representatives said Walsh and March are no longer with the force and that Gaffney will be suspended without pay. The three officers conspired to conceal the true facts surrounding McDonald's killing in order to protect their fellow officer from criminal investigation and prosecution, the indictment said. They lied about what happened and mischaracterized the video recordings, which they knew would lead to a criminal investigation and likely criminal charges, it said. Jason Van Dyke, the Chicago police officer accused of murder in the McDonald shooting, was charged in March with 16 new counts of aggravated battery. Van Dyke pleaded not guilty to the 16 counts. He pleaded not guilty to murder in 2015 and is awaiting trial. When asked if others might face charges, Holmes said the matter is still being investigated. March, 58, and Walsh, 48, were police veterans of more than 30 years and about 20 years, respectively. Gaffney, 43, has about 20 years in the department. All are expected to be arraigned on July 10. Chicago police last month finalised stricter limits on when officers can use firearms and other force, the latest attempt to reform a department roiled by misconduct and criticism in the wake of McDonald's death.
  12. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise speaks to reporters at the US Capitol, hours before an expected vote to repeal Obamacare in Washington, D.C., US on May 4, 2017. REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque/File Photo WASHINGTON: US Representative Steve Scalise's condition has improved but remained critical on Thursday, a day after a man who had expressed anger toward President Donald Trump opened fire on Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice. Trump on Thursday reiterated his call for unity in the aftermath of the shooting in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia. But Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the House of Representatives, criticised some Republicans who have blamed the shooting on vitriol from the political left. Scalise, a congressman from Louisiana who is the No. 3 House Republican, suffered injuries to internal organs, broken bones, and severe bleeding after being shot in the left hip on a baseball field where he and other lawmakers were practising for a charity baseball game. Scalise underwent a second surgery for internal injuries and a broken leg ? his third procedure overall ? and remained in critical condition but had shown improvement, MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement on Thursday. 51-year-old Scalise and three others were wounded when a man identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, from the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois, opened fire on the lawmakers. The others wounded were a police officer, a congressional aide, and a lobbyist. Hodgkinson, who had a history of posting angry messages against Trump and other Republicans on social media, died after being wounded by police. The US Capitol Police said Hodgkinson used a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62-caliber rifle in the shooting, and traces run by investigators showed he evidently acquired the weapons legally. "Both were purchased by the shooter from federal firearms licensees," the Capitol Police said in a statement. "We currently have no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful." The FBI recovered a cellphone, computer, and camera from Hodgkinson's van and was examining them for evidence, the statement said. US lawmaker Scalise in critical condition after attack by gunman at baseball field The gunman opened fire on a group of Republican lawmakers and colleagues at a baseball field in Alexandria Trump, who visited Scalise at the hospital on Wednesday, said the congressman was "in some trouble but he's going to be okay, we hope." "It's been much more difficult than people even thought at the time," Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday, adding he also visited the wounded Capitol Police officer at the hospital. Vice President Mike Pence earlier on Thursday said he visited the hospital where Scalise was being treated. Republican members of Congress played their Democratic colleagues in a charity game on Thursday night at Nationals Park ? home of the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team ? with thousands of spectators attending. The lawmakers took the field with many wearing hats to honour Scalise. When the members of the Republican team were announced, mention of Scalise's name drew a standing ovation throughout the stadium. The shooting has raised questions about lawmakers' security, renewed the nation's contentious debate over guns, and drawn new attention to the harsh rhetoric that reflects America's political polarisation. Trump, in a video message played at the game, said the event had "a much deeper level of meaning" because of the shooting. "In Washington, we have our disagreements, but we all agree that we are here to serve this nation we love and the people who call it home," Trump said. "That?s the source of unity and more than ever we must embrace it." Pelosi criticises Republicans Many lawmakers in both parties called for unity after the shooting. But at a news conference, Pelosi bristled at comments made by a few Republicans and conservative activists who blamed heated Democratic rhetoric for the incident. "The comments made by my Republican colleagues are outrageous, beneath the dignity of the job that they hold, beneath the dignity of the respect that we would like Congress to command. How dare they say such a thing!" Pelosi said. She said Republican vitriol and caricatures of her had resulted in "calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my family, really predicated on their comments and their paid ads". Pelosi also cited past remarks by Trump, saying, "You have a president who says: 'I could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and nobody would care.'" She did not specify which comments by Republicans she objected to. Among others, Republican Representative Steve King wrote on Twitter that "violence is incited by the leading cultural voices of the Left" and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich cited an "increasing hostility on the left".
  13. LONDON: A man opened fire in the Iranian parliament on Wednesday and injured a guard, a witness told Reuters. "A person entered Iranian parliament today and started shooting at the guards. He shot one of the guards in the leg and ran away," two semi official agencies, Fars and Mehr, reported on their telegram feeds. The semi-official Tasnim news agency reported that a guard was hit in the leg, and two members of the public were also injured. The identity and the motivation of the assailant was still unclear, Tasnim said. The witness told Reuters that security forces had massed inside and outside parliament, and that the incident was now over.
  14. A gunman on a rampage during a domestic dispute in rural Mississippi fatally shot eight people, including a sheriff´s deputy, US news reports said on Sunday. The shootings took place late Saturday in two small hamlets, Brookhaven and Bogue Chitto, both about 60 miles (100 kilometers) from the city of Jackson. Although details were still murky, the gunman -- Willie Cory Godbolt, 35 -- told The Clarion-Ledger newspaper after his arrest on Sunday that he had gone to a home in Bogue Chitto to talk about getting custody of his children. After the conflict escalated, neighbours called police, and Godbolt shot the arriving deputy. "My pain wasn´t designed for him. He was just there," Godbolt said of the officer. "We was talking about me trying to take the children home," he told the newspaper while sitting on the ground at one of the shooting scenes, arms cuffed behind his back. "Somebody called the officer," he added. "It cost him his life. I´m sorry." Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant issued a statement Sunday calling the shootings a "tragedy" and hailing law enforcement officers who "sacrifice to protect and serve their communities."
  15. KARACHI: Five of a family were injured in a shooting in Karachi late Wednesday, while police rounded up eight suspects in different raids, officials said. Unknown persons opened fire inside a house in Jamshed Road area. Rescue sources said the incident left five people injured, including three women. Sources informed Geo News that firing occurred during robbery inthe house. Unknown robbers, after looting valuables, lined-up family members and opened fire on them. The injured were shifted to a hospital. Meanwhile, police cracked down on criminals late this night, apprehending six suspects, involved in street crimes and drugs dealing, from Saudabad. Officials seized weapons, mobile phones and drugs from them. A case was also registered against the suspects. Two more street criminals were held in Nazimabad area, police said. Weapons, mobile phones, a stolen motorbike and side mirrors of different cars were recovered from the suspects. They were booked on charges of theft and muggings.
  16. Family members of three victims of the December 2015 shooting rampage in San Bernardino, California, have sued Facebook, Google, and Twitter, claiming that the companies permitted Daesh to flourish on social media. The relatives assert that by allowing Daesh militants to spread propaganda freely on social media, the three companies provided "material support" to the group and enabled attacks such as the one in San Bernardino. "For years defendants have knowingly and recklessly provided the terrorist group Daesh with accounts to use its social networks as a tool for spreading extremist propaganda, raising funds and attracting new recruits," family members of Sierra Clayborn, Tin Nguyen and Nicholas Thalasinos charge in the 32-page complaint, which was filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Wednesday. "Without defendants Twitter, Facebook and Google (YouTube), the explosive growth of Daesh over the last few years into the most feared terrorist group in the world would not have been possible," the complaint said. Spokeswomen for Twitter and Google declined to comment on the lawsuit. Representatives for Facebook could not immediately be reached by Reuters on Thursday afternoon. Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, opened fire on a holiday gathering of Farook's co-workers at a government building in San Bernardino on Dec. 2, 2015, killing 14 people and wounding 22 others. Farook, the 28-year-old, U.S.-born son of Pakistani immigrants, and Malik, 29, a Pakistani native, died in a shootout with police four hours after the massacre. Authorities have said the couple was inspired by militants. At the time, the assault ranked as the deadliest attack by extremists on U.S. soil since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. In June 2016, an American-born gunman pledging allegiance to the leader of Daesh shot 49 people to death at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, before he was killed by police. In December 2016 the families of three men killed at the nightclub sued Twitter, Google, and Facebook in federal court on allegations similar to those in the California lawsuit. Federal law gives internet companies broad immunity from liability for content posted by their users. A number of lawsuits have been filed in recent years seeking to hold social media companies responsible for terror attacks, but none has advanced beyond the preliminary phases.
  17. FAISALABAD: A station house officer among two policemen was killed in a shooting incident in Faisalabad late Saturday, police sources said. The incident took place near General Bus Stand in Faisalabad, when police signalled a suspected vehicle to pull over, sources informed Geo News. Unknown suspects inside the car opened fire on the cops, injuring three police personnel among five people. SHO Madina Town Nadeem Anjum and Constable Shehzad later succumbed to their wounds. Three others, including one policeman, remain under treatment at a hospital. The perpetrators managed to flee away from the scene.
  18. The killing of a policeman by a suspected Muslim militant pushed national security to the top of the French political agenda on Friday, two days before the presidential election, with leading candidates clashing over how to keep citizens safe. With the first round of voting in the two-stage election to take place on Sunday, far-right leader Marine Le Pen, an anti-EU politician who wants to ditch the euro, seized on the Paris shooting to push her policies on national security. Le Pen - narrowly trailing frontrunner Emmanuel Macron in opinion polls - said she would take steps to beat "Islamist terrorism" if elected, including introducing tougher immigration and border controls. Macron, a former economy minister in the government that Le Pen has criticised repeatedly for its security record, said the solutions were not as simple as she suggested. The centrist candidate, a political novice compared with his opponents, said there "no such thing as zero risk" and anyone who said otherwise was irresponsible. There are four leading candidates in a race that is still too close to call. Sunday's round of voting will be followed by a second-round runoff on May 7 between the top two candidates. Macron is in the lead with 24 percent of the first-round vote, ahead of Le Pen who had fallen back slightly to 21.5 percent, according to an Elabe survey of voter intentions taken before the shooting. Conservative Francois Fillon, a former prime minister, and the far left's Jean-Luc Melenchon were snapping at their heels with 20 and 19.5 percent respectively. The attack on Thursday night on the Champs Elysees boulevard added a new source of unpredictability to a closely contested election that will decide the management of France's 2.2 trillion euro economy, which vies with Britain for the rank of fifth largest in the world. The outcome could also have a bearing on France's place in Europe and the world. Should Le Pen win, it could deal a hammer blow to the European Union, which is still reeling from Britain's decision to leave the bloc. All the candidates are seeking to woo the high proportion of people that are undecided about who to vote for - 31 percent according to an Ipsos poll on Friday. Fillon also seized on the attack, which was claimed by Daesh, saying the fight against "Islamist totalitarianism" should be the priority of the next president. "It's us or them," he said. Financial markets though shrugged off the latest twist in the presidential campaign with French bond yields hitting a three-month low on Friday. The Champs Elysees shooting is the latest in a series of attacks by religious militants on France in recent years in which more than 200 people have been killed. A truck ploughed into people in Nice on Bastille Day last year killing more than 80 people while coordinated attacks across Paris including the Bataclan concert hall claimed about 130 lives in November 2015. There have also been attacks on a Jewish school, a satirical weekly and a kosher market. US President Donald Trump said on Twitter that the shooting would influence the French election. "Another terrorist attack in Paris. The people of France will not take much more of this. Will have a big effect on presidential election!" he said. However previous attacks that have taken place soon before elections, including the November 2015 attacks in Paris ahead of regional polls and the shooting in a Jewish school before the 2012 presidentials, did not appear to change the course of those ballots in favor of those espousing tougher national security. An assault on a soldier in February at the Paris Louvre museum by a man wielding a machete also had no obvious impact on this year's opinion polls, which have consistently said that voters see unemployment and trustworthiness of politicians as bigger issues. Security forces on alert A French policeman was shot dead and two others were wounded in Thursday night's attack in central Paris. After an emergency meeting of security officials, Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said security forces, including elite units, were on alert to back up the 50,000 police earmarked to ensure citizens' safety during the election. "The government is fully mobilised. Nothing must be allowed to impede the fundamental democratic process of our country," Cazeneuve told reporters. "It falls to us not to give in to fear and intimidation and manipulation which would play into the hands of the enemy." Controls on immigration and national security are cornerstones of Le Pen's National Front agenda and on Friday she said she would reinstate border checks and expel foreigners who are on watch lists of intelligence services. Macron was quick to respond to his rival's comments. "I've heard Madame Le Pen saying again recently that with her in charge, certain attacks would have been avoided," he said on RTL Radio. "There's no such thing as zero risk. Anyone who pretends (otherwise) is both irresponsible and deceitful." Tight race In the Elabe poll, which was conducted on Wednesday and Thursday, both Fillon and Melenchon were seen narrowing Macron and Le Pen's lead over them. Should Macron and Le Pen make it to the second round, the former economy minister was projected to win the runoff - and thus the presidency - with 65 percent against 35 percent for Le Pen, the survey for BFM TV and L'Express magazine showed. Fillon, who has slowly clawed back some ground lost after being hit by a fake jobs scandal, saw his score in the first round rise half a percentage point to 20 percent. Melenchon, who would hike taxes on the rich and spend 100 billion euros ($107 billion) of borrowed money on vast housebuilding and renewable energy projects, gained 1.5 points to 19.5 percent as he built further on momentum he has seen after strong performances in television debates. If Melenchon makes it to the runoff, he is projected to beat both Le Pen and Fillon by comfortable margins although he is seen losing to Macron 41 percent to 59 percent.
  19. PARIS: A known terror suspect shot dead a French policeman and wounded two others Thursday on Paris´s Champs Elysees in an attack claimed by Daesh days before a presidential election. Observers had long feared bloodshed ahead of Sunday´s vote in France following a string of atrocities since 2015 and the violence is likely to thrust security to the front of voters´ minds. The shooter opened fire with an automatic weapon on a police van on the world-famous boulevard at around 9:00 pm (1900 GMT), prompting tourists and visitors to run for their lives. After killing the officer and injuring his colleagues just a few hundred metres from the Arc de Triomphe, the gunman was shot dead in return fire while trying to flee on foot, police sources told AFP. A statement from Daesh published by its propaganda agency Amaq said the attacker was "one of the Islamic State´s fighters." The killer, identified as a 39-year-old French man, was known to anti-terror police, sources told AFP, and raids took place at his address in a suburb to the east of Paris. He was arrested in February on suspicion of plotting to kill officers but was released because of lack of evidence. He had been convicted in 2005 of three counts of attempted murder, with two of these against police officers, sources said. The impact on the outcome of the French election is unclear -- Sunday is the poll´s first round -- but far-right leader Marine Le Pen, her centrist rival Emmanuel Macron, and scandal-hit conservative Francois Fillon cancelled campaign events planned for Friday. Up until now, surveys showed voters more concerned about unemployment and their spending power than terrorism or security, though analysts warned this would change in the event of violence. The shooting comes two days after the arrest of two men in southern Marseille with weapons and explosives who were suspected of preparing an attack to disrupt the campaign. French President Francois Hollande promised "absolute vigilance, particularly with regard to the electoral process" and paid tribute to the police. Hollande, who said he was convinced the shooting was a "terrorist act", cancelled a trip to Bretagne and will chair a security cabinet meeting Friday. Security in campaign Anti-immigration contender Le Pen earlier welcomed security moving to the heart of the campaign as she took part in a prime-time interview show alongside 10 other presidential candidates. "We are suffering the consequences of a laxity that has continued for years," she said shortly before the shooting, promising to take a hard line against extremists. For weeks, former banker Macron and Le Pen have been out in front but opinion polls now show there is a chance that any of four leading candidates could reach the election´s second-round runoff on May 7. Conservative candidate Fillon and far-left firebrand Jean-Luc Melenchon have closed the gap substantially in the last two weeks. "The first responsibility of the president is to protect," Macron said on the interview show. "This threat will be part of our daily lives in the next years." Fillon, who penned a pre-election book called "Beating Islamic Totalitarianism", declared that "the fight against terrorism must be the absolute priority of the next president." As the first details of the attack filtered through, US President Donald Trump said that "it looks like another terrorist attack. What can you say? It just never ends." German Chancellor Angela Merkel sent her condolences. State of emergency The bustling Champs Elysees lies in the heart of Paris and is lined with shops and restaurants. It was immediately blocked by armed officers after the attack and nearby metro stations were closed. "We had to hide our customers in the basement," Choukri Chouanine, manager of a restaurant near the site of the shooting, told AFP, saying there was "lots of gunfire." A spokesman for the interior ministry paid tribute to the fast reflexes of police at the scene who managed to kill the gunman and prevent further bloodshed on a busy spring-time evening. A foreign tourist was slightly wounded in her knee by shrapnel during the shooting. France is in a state of emergency and at its highest possible level of terror alert, with jihadist-inspired assaults killing more than 230 people in recent years. The Charlie Hebdo magazine was hit in January 2015, sites around Paris including the Bataclan concert hall were targeted in November the same year, and families at a fireworks display in Nice in July 2016. There have also been smaller attacks, often aimed at security forces. Thousands of troops and armed police have been deployed to guard tourist hotspots such as the Champs Elysees or other potential targets, including government buildings and religious sites.
  20. PARIS: One police officer was killed and another wounded Thursday in a shooting on Paris´s Champs Elysees, police said, just days ahead of France´s presidential election. France´s interior ministry said the attacker was killed in the incident in the early evening on the world-famous boulevard. The famous shopping street in the heart of the city, which is usually teaming with tourists and Parisians, was blocked by armed police and metro stations in the area were closed. Dozens of vehicles from the emergency services were sent to the area. The shooting comes just two days after police arrested two men in southern Marseille with weapons and explosives who were suspected of preparing an attack to disrupt the first-round of the presidential election on Sunday.

  22. The Kansas shooting disaster which ended up taking the life of an Indian engineer will go down in history as a sad day. Srinivas Kuchibhotla, the Indian engineer who lost his life was just 32 years old. However, Ian Grillot, a local Kansas resident intervened the shooting that night and ensured that no more lives were taken. Sadly, in the process, he even took two bullets and injured himself. © Twitter In another happy space, Ian is now recovering and is out of danger. His heroic act might be a humanitarian act on his end, but it ended up with him becoming a hero in the eyes of everyone. India salutes the heroism of Ian Grillot ! Best wishes for a speedy recovery. — Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) February 27, 2017 The Indian consul general in Houston, Anupam Ray not only extended his gratitude on behalf of Indians, but as a token of thanks, invited Ian and his family to India. Ian is a US Navy veteran and he happily accepted the warmth and the invite. Since he was discharged last week, he is already in the process of visiting our country. Such heroic acts prove that humanity binds the world and while there are people who divide us on cultural and racial lines, there are others who bind us with humanity.
