    Germany has deported a Moroccan man who acted as a "book-keeper" for the 9/11 terrorists, 17 years after the deadly attacks. Mounir el Motassadeq, a member of a terrorist organisation known as the called "Hamburg cell", was imprisoned in 2006 after he was convicted of aiding lead hijacker Mohamed Atta and two other al-Qaeda extremists by paying their tuition and rent to keep the pretence that they were students. Almost 3,000 people were killed when two hijacked planes were flown into the twin towers of New York's World Trade Centre on 11 September 2001.

  • Person claimed ricin was in letter sent to Senator Collins home

    Golocal247.com news

    A suspicious letter sent to the Maine home of Republican U.S. Senator Susan Collins had a note saying it contained the deadly poison ricin, the senator's office said on Tuesday, adding any affected areas had been cleared. No one was harmed in the incident that took place on Monday and Collins' office did not comment on whether the letter sent to Tom Daffron, the senator's husband, actually contained ricin. "Mr. Daffron, their dog, and parts of their home were quarantined while the crime lab undertook an analysis of the premises," Annie Clark, a spokeswoman for Collins said in a statement, adding that "the incident is the latest in a series of threats against Senator Collins, her loved ones, and her staff." Collins was thrust into the national spotlight this month when she became a key vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, delivering a major victory to President Donald Trump, who has now locked in a conservative majority on the court.

  • Police 'not ruling out terrorism' after man fire bombs McDonald's and takes hostage in Cologne train station

    Golocal247.com news

    A man threw a Molotov cocktail into a crowded McDonald’s restaurant before taking a woman hostage in the German city of Cologne's main railway station in what police said may have been a failed terror attack. A 14-year-old girl suffered burns to her legs when the man claiming to be a member of Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) attacked the restaurant. Police said the could not rule out terrorism. He then took a second woman hostage in a pharmacy inside the station complex while onlookers fled. Witnesses described him as shouting that he was acting for Isil. Police special forces stormed the station and freed the hostage, who suffered moderate injuries according to emergency services. The suspect was shot in the stomach by police marksmen and was said to be in critical condition last night (MON). Police denied reports of shots being fired Credit:  Michael Gottschalk/ Getty The residence document of a 55-year-old Syrian who has been living in Cologne since 2016 was recovered from the scene, but police said it was not clear if it belonged to the suspect. The owner of the residence card has a criminal record for theft. The incident began at around 12.45pm local time (11.45pm BST) when the suspect threw a Molotov cocktail into the station’s McDonald’s outlet. A 14-year-old girl was injured but managed to escape. “It was indescribable, terrible to look at,” a witness who saw the teenager’s injuries told the local Express newspaper. The girl was rushed to hospital and was said to be in stable condition last night (MON). Armed with a handgun, the suspect then took another woman hostage in the station pharmacy. Loudspeaker announcements ordered the public to leave the station by the nearest exit and police sealed the complex off. A two-hour stand-off followed as nervous passengers waited on the nearby steps of Cologne cathedral, many of them clutching their luggage. All trains to and from the station, one of the busiest in Germany, were cancelled. The suspect made various “political demands”, including the release of a Tunisian woman from prison, according to police. He also demanded safe passage out of the station. He was known to police for offences including theft and fraud, Cologne's deputy police chief Miriam Brauns said. "We also do not rule out a terrorist attack," Ms Brauns said. Police were unable to determine if the handgun he was carrying was genuine from a distance, and the decision was made to storm the station, a spokesman said. A police marksman shot the suspect in the stomach to disable him. Inquiries were still ongoing last night, and it is not yet clear if the handgun the suspect used was genuine, police said. Police made the decision to storm the station when the suspect threatened to set light to the hostage. He had taped gas cartridges to her body and poured fuel over her. Police were unable to determine if the handgun he was carrying was genuine, so a police marksman shot the suspect in the stomach to disable him.

  • Paul Allen dies aged 65: Tributes to Microsoft co-founder who 'changed the world'

    Golocal247.com news

    Paul Allen, who founded Microsoft alongside Bill Gates in 1975, has died at the age of 65.  Mr Allen, who suffered from non-Hodgkin lymphoma, was also a prominent philanthropist, donating billions to science, conservation and the arts.  Eight years after starting the company he received his first cancer diagnosis, but it was treated successfully, though it forced him to retire early from his role at Microsoft. He developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2009, which had been in remission until it returned earlier this year.  In a statement released at the start of this month, Mr Allen said he planned to fight the disease "aggressively".  “A lot has happened in medicine since I overcame this disease in 2009. My doctors are optimistic that I will see good results from the latest therapies, as am I," he said.  Bill Gates, left, and Paul Allen chat during a basketball game in Seattle Credit: AP On Monday his sister Jody Allen called him a "remarkable individual on every level".  "While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend.   "For all the demands on his schedule, there was always time for family and friends.  "At this time of loss and grief for us - and so many others - we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated every day," she said.  Mr Gates led the tributes from the tech world, remembering Mr Allen as "one of my oldest and dearest friends." "Personal computing would not have existed without him," Mr Gates added. "He was fond of saying, 'If it has the potential to do good, then we should do it.' That's the kind of person he was." Very sad to hear of Paul Allen’s passing. His passion for invention and pushing forward inspired so many. He was relentless to the end. My heart goes out to Paul’s family and friends.— Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) October 15, 2018 Current Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said his contributions to technology had been "indispensable". "As co-founder of Microsoft, in his own quiet and persistent way, he created magical products, experiences and institutions, and in doing so, he changed the world," he said.  Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, said the tech industry had "lost a pioneer and our world has lost a force for good". Mr Allen never married and had no children, and was sometimes described as reclusive.  His early exit from Microsoft meant he dedicated much of his life to scientific and technological research, including the foundation of the Allen Institute, which began by focusing on neuroscience but has widened its approach to cover bioscience, and a more recent project to build a reusable space plane, designed to launch satellites.  So sad to hear about the passing of Paul Allen. Among many other things he was a pioneer of commercial space travel. We shared a belief that by exploring space in new ways we can improve life on Earth. All our thoughts are with his loved ones.— Richard Branson (@richardbranson) October 15, 2018 He also owned American football team the Seattle Seahawks and basketball team the Portland Trailblazers.  In a joint statement the organisations paid tribute to Mr Allen.  On their behalf Bill Hilf, CEO of Vulcan, which oversaw his businesses, said: "All of us who had the honour of working with Paul feel inexpressible loss today.  Sad to hear of the passing of Paul Allen, who was a strong advocate for environmental protection. He and the team at Vulcan played a pivotal role in developing the Shark Conservation Fund alongside LDF. His legacy lives on via his incredible work as a philanthropist and investor.— Leonardo DiCaprio (@LeoDiCaprio) October 16, 2018 "He possessed a remarkable intellect and a passion to solve some of the world’s most difficult problems, with the conviction that creative thinking and new approaches could make profound and lasting impact. "Millions of people were touched by his generosity, his persistence in pursuit of a better world, and his drive to accomplish as much as he could with the time and resources at his disposal."
