At least 14 lined up and killed after gunmen ambush bus in Pakistan, officials say

At least 14 people were lined up and executed in southwestern Pakistan after gunmen ambushed a bus and forced the passengers onto a highway early Thursday, officials said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Prime Minister Imran Khan has condemned the attack in restive Baluchistan province as “an act of terror.”

The attack took place as the bus was traveling on the Makran coastal highway between the port city of Karachi and the Gwadar port in the southwest, local official Jehangir Dashti told The Associated Press. He said that the passengers targeted in the attack were killed after the assailants checked their identity cards.

“In this tragic incident, 14 passengers were forced off the bus, they were lined up in a nearby open area and killed by the terrorists,” Dashti said. The identities of the slain were not immediately clear.

Security forces from the nearby town of Buzi Top were dispatched and had reached the area, about 375 miles from the provincial capital, Quetta, he added.

In his statement, Prime Minister Imran Khan ordered authorities “to make every possible effort to identify and to bring the perpetrators of the barbaric act to justice.”

Separatists have for years waged a low-level insurgency in oil-rich Baluchistan, complaining of discrimination and demanding a fairer share of the province’s resources and wealth.

Other militant groups also operate in Baluchistan. Last Friday, a suicide bomber targeted an open-air market in Quetta, killing 20 people in an attack claimed by the Islamic State group.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was criticized on social media Wednesday over a comment he made about Disney’s $5 million donation to restore the scorched Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

The Walt Disney Company, which was among a handful of corporations that pledged to help rebuild the almost 900-year-old cathedral after it was damaged in a devastating fire earlier this week, announced a $5 million contribution early Wednesday.

Responding to the news a few hours later, Cruz joked whether the cathedral’s restoration will include Disney princesses on the new stained glass.

MACRON’S VOW TO REBUILD NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL WITHIN 5 YEARS UNREALISTIC, SOME EXPERTS SAY

Within hours, thousands on Twitter condemned Cruz for what they regarded as a joke that fell flat.

In announcing their contribution, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger discussed the cathedral’s prominent role in the city’s history.

“Notre-Dame is a beacon of hope and beauty that has defined the heart of Paris and the soul of France for centuries, inspiring awe and reverence for its art and architecture and for its enduring place in human history,” Iger said in the statement. “The Walt Disney Company stands with our friends and neighbors in the community, offering our heartfelt support as well as a $5 million donation for the restoration of this irreplaceable masterpiece.”

Scientists revive cellular activity in brain of dead pigs: report

A team of Yale scientists managed to revive cellular activity in the brains of dead pigs that had been slaughtered hours before, challenging previous assumptions that brain cells irreversibly die off once the blood flow stops.

According to the researchers, the pigs had been dead for four hours when the brain cells were revived. The researchers used a special device that circulated a “blood-like chemical solution” through the pig’s brain maintained cellular activity six hours later. The study was funded mostly through the National Institutes of Health.

This does not mean the pigs were “living,” in the sense that they exhibited electrical activity associated with “consciousness,” senior researcher Dr. Nenad Sestan said. It merely meant that their brains were “cellularly active” and their brains showed no large-scale electrical activity that would indicate awareness.

NASA SCIENTISTS SEND MICE INTO SPACE TO STUDY EFFECTS OF MICROGRAVITY ON HUMANS

Sestan said the findings have profound implications for stroke therapies and other disorders that cause brain cells to die. Co-researcher Stephen Latham, director of the Yale Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics, said the same process could be used to preserve organs harvested for donations.

But the experiment has also raised some ethical concerns. Bioethicist Nita Farahany, who has urged ethics guidelines for similar experiments in the future, said the study leaves a “gaping gray zone, with almost no guidance of how to proceed ethically.”

A 1-year-old girl went into convulsions at an upscale hotel in New York Monday evening after ingesting as much as 20 sleeping pills, according to a report.

The infant had been staying at the Times Square hotel with her parents, who are Brazilian residents, the New York Post reported.

Around 7 p.m., her mother looked up from a book to see her daughter ingesting between 15 and 20 sleeping pills, the report said, citing unnamed sources. The girl started having a seizure, and her parents asked the front desk to call 911.

As of Tuesday, the baby was on life support at Mt. Sinai Hospital. An investigation is ongoing but police say no foul play is suspected.

Police in southwestern Michigan are warning residents to be vigilant after a patron reported finding razor blades on a gas pump handle.

A woman found two razor blades at Speedway on Ryno Street Monday evening, Coloma Township Police wrote on Facebook Tuesday evening.

When police inspected the next day, they found six more blades on top of the pump, the Detroit Free Press reported. Police reviewed surveillance footage but were unable to identify a suspect, the report said.

Woman ‘infatuated’ with Columbine shooting puts Colorado schools on edge

Colorado schools are on edge Wednesday after a Miami woman “infatuated” with the 1999 Columbine massacre made threats and traveled to Colorado where she bought firearms earlier this week, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI.

Sol Pais, 18, who has a history of making “concerning” comments, arrived in Colorado from Miami early Monday and bought a pump action shotgun and ammunition, the FBI told reporters Tuesday evening. The FBI’s Miami office had reportedly alerted its Denver counterpart after learning of the potential threat.

Authorities said Pais was last seen in the foothills of Denver and remains at large. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is currently leading multiple agencies in a massive manhunt. While no warrant has been issued for her arrest, the FBI said that district attorneys and the U.S. attorney’s office are discussing appropriate charges.

FLORIDA SCHOOL SHOOTING SUSPECT NIKOLAS CRUZ’S CRYPTIC LOVE LETTERS FROM JAIL TO UK WOMAN REVEALED

The FBI’s Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force issued a notice Tuesday describing Pais as “infatuated with (the) Columbine school shooting.” The alert said police who come into contact with her should detain her and evaluate her mental health.

More than 20 schools — including Columbine — were put on lockouts Tuesday, meaning classes were conducted as usual, but entry and exits were heavily restricted for nearly three hours. Officials have not made a decision about whether to keep schools open on Wednesday, the Denver Channel reported.

“We are holding off on that decision and not announcing now because it is changing by the minute,” Stan Hilke of the Department of Public Safety said.

Authorities said Pais hasn’t singled out a particular school but has an “infatuation” with Columbine and the Columbine shooters. The threat comes just days ahead of the massacre’s 20th anniversary.

Nearly 60,000 known or suspected illegal immigrants are being held in federal prisons, according to a report obtained by Fox News Tuesday from the Department of Justice.

G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, joined ‘The Ingraham Angle’ to discuss the DOJ’s findings.

Quoting the report, he said “criminal aliens” make up 21 percent of those in the Federal Bureau of Prisons custody and 38 percent of those in Marshals custody.

Terwilliger lamented that a “staggering” amount of resources are being diverted to fighting illegal immigration at the expense other problems like a rising opioid epidemic and rising crime rates in certain areas.

“We’re not talking about the non-violent simple possession (drug charges), these are actually drug traffickers and a lot of times these are individuals who are apprehended with massive loads who are walking across the border,” he said.

Deported illegal immigrant whose spouse is a fallen US soldier allowed reentry into US: report

An illegal immigrant whose wife – a U.S. soldier – died while serving in Afghanistan, was allowed re-entry into the U.S. on Monday after immigration officials deported him from his Arizona home last week, according to a report.

Jose Gonzalez Carranza, who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally in 2004, was arrested on April 8 and deported two days later, the Arizona Republic reported, citing his attorney Ezequiel Hernandez.

Carranza’s wife, Army Pfc. Barbara Vievra, died in 2010 during an attack by insurgents in Afghanistan.  Gonzalez was subsequently awarded a “parole in place,” which meant he could stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation despite being in the country illegally, his lawyer said.

NEW YORK CITY TO GIVE ADDITIONAL $1.6 MILLION TO CITY ATTORNEYS TO DEFEND IMMIGRANTS SLATED FOR DEPORTATION

Last December, a judge ordered Gonzalez deported for reportedly failing to attend a court hearing. Hernandez claimed Carranza was not aware of the court hearing until his arrest last week.

After a report by the Arizona Republic, Customs and Border Protection agents let Gonzales reenter the U.S. Hernandez said he was working out the terms with ICE officials and has filed a motion to reopen the deportation case, the Arizona Republic reported.

The office of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., told the Arizona Republic it had spoken with Hernandez and will “assist the Carranza family in the process.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Monday made a point to heap more praise on Democrats who flipped Republican seats in the 2018 midterms and downplayed representatives like herself and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who carried districts where a “glass of water” with a “D” next to it could win.

“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s,” Pelosi said. “[S]he’s a wonderful member of Congress as I think all of our colleagues will attest. But those are districts that are solidly Democratic.”

To drive the point home she picked up a water glass next to her and said: “This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.”

Pelosi, who is traveling in Europe with a congressional delegation this week, made the comments during an appearance before the London School of Economics and Political Science.
