Three men accused of plotting to bomb Somali immigrants in western Kansas were only preparing to defend themselves in the event of "massive social upheaval" as they accumulated firearms and ammunition, a defense attorney said Friday. The arguments were the first glimpse into the unfolding defense strategy for three men prosecutors say where conspiring to detonate truck bombs at an apartment complex where 120 Somali immigrants live in the meatpacking town of Garden City. Prosecutors contend Stein was the leader of a militia group called The Crusaders, though his attorney, Ed Robinson, denies his client even knows of such a group.
This is the lush, tropical side of Maui, where rain falls hard and guts great canyons through lava flows and sticky red mud. Is this a realistic test for the average workday for Toyota’s hardcore off-roader, the Tacoma TRD PRO? Maui is covered in Tacomas.

Three-year-old Bao Bao, who was the first surviving cub born at Smithsonian's National Zoo since 2005, has enchanted zoo visitors and others who watched her via live "panda cam" footage. "She's captured the hearts of people all over the world who watched her grow up ... and she has been an ambassador for conservation," Brandie Smith, associate director of animal care at the zoo, said in a statement.

A U.S. service member was killed in northern Iraq on Thursday when an improvised explosive device detonated as American troops accompanied local forces as they pushed toward Mosul, U.S. Central Command announced. It was the second combat death suffered by American forces battling the Islamic State this month. On Oct. 6, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Adam Thomas was killed after another improvised bomb went off while his unit was on a foot patrol in Nangarhar, Afghanistan, where U.S. Special Operations forces are fighting ISIS alongside Afghan troops.

If you’ve ever squirmed through a mean-spirited, ill-advised wedding toast delivered by somebody’s inappropriate drunk uncle, then you’ll have some sense of the feeling in the room at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria hotel Thursday night, where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton attended the annual fundraiser for Catholic charities known as the Al Smith Dinner. The event has become a regular stop near the end of the presidential campaign cycle over the past decade, though its history stretches back more than 70 years. Over time, nominees have been invited or excluded based largely on their relationships with the Catholic Church.
Two Minneapolis police officers followed proper procedure in a confrontation that led to the fatal shooting of Jamar Clark in November, and won't face discipline, the city's police chief announced. Chief Janee Harteau said Friday that an internal investigation found the officers were warranted in using deadly force in the death of the 24-year-old black man. Clark was shot in the head on Nov. 15 in a confrontation with Officers Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze on the city's north side.
Remember Atieva, the Silicon Valley upstart with the electric van named Edna that could outrun Ferraris and Dodge Vipers?

The up-and-coming electric car company has revealed a few details about the car, however.
By Ben Blanchard BEIJING (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte announced his "separation" from the United States on Thursday, declaring he had realigned with China as the two agreed to resolve their South China Sea dispute through talks. Duterte made his comments in Beijing, where he is visiting with at least 200 business people to pave the way for what he calls a new commercial alliance as relations with longtime ally Washington deteriorate. "In this venue, your honors, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States," Duterte told Chinese and Philippine business people, to applause, at a forum in the Great Hall of the People attended by Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli.
The "Jungle" migrant camp on France's northern coast will be cleared of its residents on Monday before being demolished, authorities said Friday. Migrants at the camp in the ferry port of Calais will begin boarding 145 buses at 8:00 am (0600 GMT) Monday to take them to nearly 300 temporary accommodation centres dotted round France. The camp has strained relations between France and Britain, the country most of its residents are trying to reach.

A Cass County sheriff's official confirmed Friday that all six members of a rural southeast Nebraska family were killed in a house fire this week.

Venezuela's opposition Friday urged "resistance" after the government blocked its efforts to force a recall vote on President Nicolas Maduro, but vowed peaceful action to keep a political crisis from erupting into violence. "The government wants violence or submission," said Jesus Torrealba, spokesman of the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD), the center right-dominated opposition coalition. A country under a dictatorship must fight bravely for a vote," he told reporters during a break in the MUD's emergency meetings.
Hackers unleashed a complex attack on the internet through common devices like webcams and digital recorders and cut access to some of the world's best known websites on Friday, a stunning breach of global internet stability. The attacks struck Twitter, Paypal, Spotify and other customers of an infrastructure company in New Hampshire called Dyn, which acts as a switchboard for internet traffic. The attackers used hundreds of thousands of internet-connected devices that had previously been infected with a malicious code that allowed them to cause outages that began in the Eastern United States and then spread to other parts of the country and Europe.
Nearly 24 hours after Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went head-to-head for the third and final presidential debate, they found themselves on the same stage again — only this time, for lighthearted ribbing. Every four years, the Al Smith dinner, an annual fundraiser for Catholic charities, offers a moment of levity and self-deprecation at the tail end of grueling campaigns. Trump’s sense of humor and brash attitude didn’t quite translate to the white-tie gala meant to raise money for children in poverty throughout New York.
The former police chief of Iguala, where 43 students went missing in 2014, was detained Friday after two years at large in a development that Mexican authorities and relatives of the disappeared hope could shed new light on the case.

Flores was arrested at 6:30 a.m. leaving a house where he had visited his wife, Commissioner Renato Sales said.
It's a common misconception, but Henrik Fisker’s new electric sedan does not have gullwing doors. Those are butterfly doors, like the ones on the Mclaren F1. The image, which was released on designer-turned-carmaker Henrik Fisker’s official Twitter account on Thursday, depicts a sleek, coupe-like four-door that, to our eyes, vaguely resembles a cross between the Porsche Mission E and the Infiniti Q60. According to Business Insider, Fisker revealed a few additional details about the new car in a letter sent out to select members of the media.
BENGUET, Philippines/HONG KONG (Reuters) - Typhoon Haima, the strongest storm to hit the Philippines in three years, killed at least 12 people and inundated vast tracts of rice and corn fields, officials in Manila said on Friday, before it took aim at Hong Kong. Eight of the victims were from the Cordillera region, said Ricardo Jalad, chief of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, citing reports the agency received from provincial officials. In Cagayan alone, where the super typhoon made landfall late on Wednesday with destructive 225 kph (140 mph) winds and heavy rain, between 50,000-60,000 hectares of rice fields were flattened and flooded, said the provincial governor Manuel Mamba.
Yaoundé (AFP) - At least 60 people were killed and nearly 600 injured when a packed train derailed between Cameroon's two main cities, officials said Saturday, as distraught relatives desperately sought news of missing loved ones. At Yaounde's main hospital, where the morgue was holding 29 bodies including those of babies, distraught relatives thronged the corridors. The train, travelling from the capital Yaounde to the economic hub of Douala, came off the rails near the central city of Eseka at around midday on Friday.
Tesla is working to start up a ride-sharing service called the Tesla Network that will compete against established companies like Uber and Lyft, the company stated on its website. "Please note that using a self-driving Tesla for car sharing and ride hailing for friends and family is fine, but doing so for revenue purposes will only be permissible on the Tesla Network, details of which will be released next year," reads a paragraph on the company's website. From the statement, it appears Tesla may attempt to lock owners out of full autonomy if they are caught using their cars for ride hailing and car-sharing services.
