  • Islamic State claims responsibility for Texas cartoon attack

  • Islamic State claims responsibility for Texas cartoon exhibit attack

    Local police and FBI investigators survey the scene where two gunmen were shot dead, after their bodies were removed in GarlandBy Ian Simpson and Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Islamic State militant group took responsibility on Tuesday for a failed attack on a Texas exhibit of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad in which two gunmen were killed, with U.S. investigators probing the veracity of the claim. The Syria- and Iraq-based Islamic State (IS) said on its official online radio station that "two soldiers of the caliphate" carried out the attack on Sunday in Garland, a suburb of Dallas. U.S. officials said while the Islamic State’s claim of responsibility for the failed Texas attack was being examined closely, investigators at this point did not know whether the dead militants launched the attack under instructions from the group or whether IS was opportunistically claiming credit for an attack in which it had little or no direct or indirect involvement.

  • Widow's friends say elder Boston bomber was cruel and controlling

    Defense attorney David Bruck presents his opening arguments during the first day of the defense's presentation in the penalty phase of the trial of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in this court sketch in BostonBy Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - The older of the two brothers who carried out the Boston Marathon bombing was a controlling boyfriend who terrified his future wife's friends, a former roommate of the woman testified as lawyers fought to save the younger brother's life. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died four days after the April 15, 2013 attack that killed three people and injured 264. His younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, last month was convicted of carrying out the attack and could be sentenced to death. The lawyers, who at the trial's opening in March conceded that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had committed all the crimes of which he was accused, contend that Tamerlan was the driving force behind the bombing, with his younger brother going along out of a sense of sibling loyalty.

  • Eyeing the White House again, Huckabee can’t escape lifelong anxieties about money

    FILE - In this April 18, 2015 file photo, former Arkansas Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee speaks at the Republican Leadership Summit in Nashua, N.H. Huckabee is set to announce he will seek the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

(AP Photo/Jim Cole, File)Eyeing the White House again, Huckabee can’t escape lifelong anxieties about money Mike Huckabee could add a populist edge to the Republican field. Huckabee and a close friend from Arkansas, David Haak, who owns the house next door, spent months combing the Gulf Coast from Texas to Florida for the “sweet spot” where they could build homes they would eventually retire in. Owning a house next to the ocean, he said, “was something I had never even imagined.” His beachfront enclave, valued at just under $3 million, is a long way from his hometown of Hope, Ark., where Huckabee grew up in a tiny rental house next to the railroad tracks on the poor side of town — not far from where Hope’s other famous son, President Bill Clinton, once lived.
