ISIS calls suspect in lethal Paris knife attack a ‘soldier’: report


A suspect killed by French authorities after knifing five people and  ultimately killing one in central Paris has been claimed as a “soldier,” the Islamic State’s news agency said Sunday.

The Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for Saturday night’s knife attack saying it was in response to ISIS’ calls for supporters to target members of the U.S.-led military coalition squeezing the extremists out of Iraq and Syria, the Aamaq news agency said in a statement.

The unidentified suspect carried out a stabbing attack Saturday evening in the 2nd Arrondissement of Paris, north of the Seine River, which ultimately led to two casualties, including the attacker. Two other people were seriously injured and two more were slightly injured.

Paris police said the attacker was subdued by officers and later confirmed that the “assailant passed away.”

Witnesses reportedly said that the police first tried to “tase” the attacker but when this failed, they fired two shots, the BBC reported, citing France24.

Police did not confirm local media reports that the suspect had been fatally shot.

The attack took place in a popular neighborhood near Paris’ famed Opera Garnier. People were asked to evacuate nearby buildings.

The motive for the attack remains unclear but police said that the suspect targeted the five people.

In a tweet sharing his condolences, French President Emmanuel Macron labeled the attacker a “terrorist.”

“All my thoughts go to the victims and the wounded of the knife attack perpetrated tonight in Paris, as well as to their relatives. I salute on behalf of all the French the courage of the policemen who have neutralized the terrorist,” his tweet was translated to.

“France once again paid the price of blood but did not give an inch to the enemies of Freedom,” Macron said in another tweet.

France’s BFM television interviewed an unnamed witness in a restaurant who said a young woman was at the entrance when “a man arrived and attacked her with a knife.” A friend came to her aid and the attacker left, “hitting on all the doors, all the shops,” the witness told BFM. He turned onto another street, and everyone scattered, the witness said.

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb denounced the attack in a tweet, which translated as, “My first thoughts are with the victims of this odious act.”

Paris has been under elevated security in recent years after a string of deadly Islamic extremist attacks.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Aggression in Paris: I salute the cold blood and responsiveness of the police forces who neutralized the assailant. My first thoughts are with the victims of this heinous act.

Lalu Yadav’s Son Tej Pratap Gets Married, Nitish Kumar Gives Blessings


Patna:  At a grand ceremony in Patna this evening, Lalu Yadav’s eldest son Tej Pratap Yadav tied the knot with Aishwarya Roy, the daughter of a Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) lawmaker. In attendance were many VIPs and thousands of other guests, including Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who set aside their political differences and made it to the wedding.

As the chief minister arrived at the veterinary college grounds in Patna – the wedding venue – he was greeted with loud cheers. The entire top leadership of the RJD stood at the entrance to welcome the guests.

Mr Kumar exchanged pleasantries with Lalu Yadav, who is out on parole from jail for the wedding, and later sat on the dais with the RJD chief and his wife Rabri Devi.

Not present at the wedding, however, was Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, the senior BJP leader who played an instrumental role in getting the central agencies to probe Lalu Yadav, sons Tej Pratap and Tejashwi and daughter Misra Bharti in corruption cases against them. Sushil Kumar Modi is reportedly out of the country.

When Sushil Kumar Modi had hosted a reception for his son’s marriage, Lalu Yadav had made it a point to show up and bless the newlyweds.

For the wedding ceremony, Tej Pratap was dressed in a pink sherwani and the bride wore a bright red dress. A lavish spread of vegetarian dishes, prepared by a Kanpur-based caterer, was laid out for the guests.

Tej Pratap Yadav, the eldest of the nine siblings, is a first-time lawmaker and was health minister until last July, when Nitish Kumar dumped the RJD and formed a new government with the BJP.

FACEBOOK को इस वजह से देना पड़ सकता है अरबों रुपये का हर्जाना

यूजर्स का दावा है कि फेसबुक ने बिना उनकी इजाजत के फेशियल रिकॉग्निशन के जरिए बायोमीट्रिक डेटा इकट्ठा किए.

सोशल मीडिया प्लेटफॉर्म Facebook को एक क्लास एक्शन लॉसूट (ऐसा मुकदमा जिसमें कई लोगों को किसी एक प्रॉडक्ट या चीज से नुकसान होता है) में अरबों डॉलर का हर्जाना देना पड़ सकता है. यह बात अलगृ-अलग रिपोर्ट्स में कही गई है. रिपोर्ट्स में कहा गया है कि फेसबुक को फेशियल रिकॉग्निशन को लेकर मुकदमे में यह हर्जाना देना पड़ सकता है. यूएस डिस्ट्रिक्ट जज जेम्स डोनाटो ने अपने फैसले में कहा है कि इलिनोइस के तीन यूजर्स फेसबुक पर मुकदमा चला सकते हैं. इन यूजर्स का दावा है कि फेसबुक ने बिना उनकी इजाजत के फेशियल रिकॉग्निशन के जरिए बायोमीट्रिक डेटा इकट्ठा किए.

यूजर्स का इशारा फेसबुक के टैग सग्जेस्शन फीचर की तरफ है, जो कि फेशियल रिकॉग्निशन का इस्तेमाल करके यह बताता है कि आप फोटो में किसको टैग कर सकते हैं. तीनों यूजर ने इलिनोइस स्टेट लॉ के तहत मुकदमा किया था, इस एक्ट का नाम बायोमीट्रिक इंफॉर्मेशन प्राइवेसी एक्ट है, इसमें फिंगरप्रिंट, रेटिना स्कैन, फेशियल रिकॉग्निशन डेटा जैसी पर्सनल इंफॉर्मेशन को प्रोटेक्शन दिया गया है.

यूएस डिस्ट्रिक्ट जज जेम्स डोनाटो की तरफ से इस मुकदम को क्लास एक्शन की तरह वर्गीकृत करने का मतलब है कि राज्यों में लाखों लोग फेसबुक के खिलाफ मुकदमा कर सकते हैं. इस मुकदमे में हर उस मामले में 5,000 डॉलर तक का हर्जाना मांगा गया है, जिसमें यूजर की इजाजत के बिना उसकी फोटो का इस्तेमाल किया गया है. अगर यह मुकदमा सफल रहता है तो क्लास सूट में हर व्यक्ति को हर्जाना मिलेगा. वहीं, फेसबुक ने कहा है कि इस केस में बिल्कुल सच्चाई नहीं है, हम आक्रामक तरीके से बचाव करेंगे. फेशियल रिकॉग्निशन फिलहाल ब्रिटेन में उपलब्ध नहीं है.

Suspect in 1986 Washington murder case arrested in Illinois


A man arrested in the 1986 killing of a Tacoma, Washington, girl came to the attention of police because before she even disappeared, he called them purportedly to give a tip about a different, similar slaying, investigators said in charging documents.

Authorities said they arrested Robert Washburn, 60, at his home in Eureka, Illinois, on Thursday, a week after they received results of a DNA test linking him to the death of 13-year-old Jennifer Bastian. He waived his right to contest extradition during a hearing Friday in Woodford County Circuit Court and was ordered detained pending his return to Washington, the Journal Star newspaper of Peoria reported.

He has been charged with first-degree murder. It was not known if he had obtained a lawyer in Washington.

Bastian disappeared while riding her bike in Tacoma’s Point Defiance Park on a summer evening, and her body was found in a wooded area off a trail more than two weeks later, on Aug. 28, 1986.

The death resembled the murder of a 12-year-old girl named Michella Welch, who was abducted in a south Seattle park in March of that year. In May, Washburn called police to say that while jogging in Point Defiance Park, he had seen a man who matched the description of the suspect in Welch’s case, Tacoma Police Detective Jared Ausserer wrote in a probable cause statement filed in Pierce County Superior Court this week.

The call made him a suspect in Bastian’s case, Ausserer wrote, and by the end of 1986, investigators had questioned him. He told them he often jogged at Point Defiance Park, sometimes twice a day, and he had been there when authorities cordoned it off amid a search for her.

But investigators apparently lacked evidence to make an arrest. Her slaying — and Welch’s — remained unsolved.

In the first year after Bastian was killed, a six-person task force put in at least 10,000 investigative hours, police said.

In 2013, the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab was able to develop a DNA profile of the suspect from semen discovered on the bathing suit Bastian had been wearing before she was killed. The profile was checked against a national database of felons, but failed to return a match.

In 2016, detectives came up with a list of suspects whose DNA they needed to compare against the profile the crime lab had developed. Among them, Ausserer wrote, was Washburn.

FBI agents went to his home in Illinois two months ago to collect the sample; Washburn voluntarily provided it, the detective wrote, and on May 3 the results came back with a hit.

Welch’s killing is still unsolved. While authorities initially believed the two cases might be linked, DNA analysis performed in 2016 showed otherwise, according to The News Tribune newspaper of Tacoma.
