Man claims multiple bodies were found huddled into one room in Grenfell Tower
An armed driver who slammed a car into a police van has been shot dead, authorities in France said. France's Interior Ministry confirmed emergency services are dealing with a "security incident" at the world-famous Champs-Élysées. Paris police on Monday said they are "in control" after armed police stormed the shopping district in the city centre. Witnesses say a police van was hit by another vehicle which was the on fire sparking the major response. "It looks like this was a deliberate act," Interior Ministry Spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told reporters at the scene. The Paris prosecutor's counter-terrorism unit said it had opened an investigation into the incident, which occurred only a short walk away from the Elysees presidential palace and the US embassy. Brandet said it was very likely that the driver, who had been armed, was dead. A police bomb squad is also present. One witness, who was just 20 metres from the scene, said: “Large bangs followed by what sounded like shots fired near a car with smoke coming out of it on Champs Elysees.” Armed officers have been pictured surrounding a police cordon after reports of a man on the ground. Some reports suggest he was dragged from the car. An image has now appeared of a bloodied man lying face down on the floor, while the body is searched by a bomb robot. Police in Paris are asking people to stay clear of the area.
Police said they arrested a man outside London's Paddington Station on June 19th but added that the incident was not terrorism-related.
Iranian state television aired a video on Monday reportedly showing drone footage of Sunday's launch of ground-to-ground ballistic missiles from the Iranian province of Kermanshah. According to the statement released by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, the strikes on Syria were a direct response to last week's terror attacks in Tehran. The missile was targeting areas deemed to be ““Takfiri terrorists” in Syria's eastern Deir Ez-Zor region.

A major forest fire sweeping through central Portugal has led to at least 62 fatalities, with 59 more people injured, Interior Ministry official Jorge Gomes said, adding that many were burnt to death in their cars while making a desperate attempt to flee.
Four people were listed as missing Sunday after an earthquake sparked a tsunami off Greenland and forced some residents to be evacuated. Police Chief Bjorn Tegner Bay said he was unable to confirm whether there had been fatalities. However he said, 11 houses had been swept away after a magnitude 4 overnight quake off Uuummannaq, a small island well above the arctic circle. There were also reports of waves striking two other villages.
A 22-year-old man is in custody after a Muslim teenager was found beaten to death in Virginia. According to the Fairfax County Police Department, Darwin Martinez Torres is facing murder charges in relation to the killing of Nabra Hassanen, 17, in Herndon, Virginia, in the early hours of June 18. Nabra had been the subject of a missing persons case at around 4 a.m. on June 18 with police saying that she was last seen walking near a mosque with friends. Many Muslims pray late into the evening and early hours during Ramadan. Then, Nabra had a verbal fight with a man in a car. That man is thought to have attacked and killed her. Torres was picked up by police shortly after Nabra was first reported missing.
Tim Hague, a UFC veteran, is dead at age 34, two days after suffering a boxing knockout Friday night.
Hague died Sunday at a hospital in Edmonton after being in critical condition all weekend, his family said in a statement posted to his sister’s Facebook page. Hague was knocked out in the second round by fellow heavyweight Adam Braidwood at an event promoted by KO Boxing Canada.
“It is with incredible sadness, sorrow and heartbreak to report that Tim has passed away today,” the statement read. “He was surrounded by family, listening to his favorite songs. We will miss him with [us] so greatly. We ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
Braidwood, a former football player, knocked Hague down several times during the bout, but the referee didn’t call for a finish until one punch left Hague out cold in the second round. Hague was 1-2 as a boxer going into the fight, while Braidwood was 7-1 with six knockouts.
The bout was sanctioned by the Edmonton Combative Sports Commission (ECSC). Hague lost by knockout in a boxing match in December and was the victim of some form of knockout in four of his last MMA fights, stretching back to 2015.
Hague compiled a 21-13 record in MMA with 15 knockouts and four submission. He defeated Pat Barry by first-round submission in his UFC debut back in 2009, but lost his next three and was released by the promotion. The Edmonton native was brought back in 2011 and lost to Matt Mitrione via first-round TKO.
After his UFC run, Hague fought mainly in his native Canada, winning heavyweight titles in the Unified MMA promotion and in XFFC. The latter was just last year, an April 2016 fourth-round TKO victory over Kalib Starnes. Hague fell in his last MMA bout to Michal Andryszak under the ACB banner in Russia by first-round TKO in July 2016.
The Finsbury Park mosque terror suspect was filmed blowing a kiss and waving minutes after he mowed down a crowd and shouted: 'I want to kill all Muslims - I did my bit'. The alleged killer used a white van to intentionally mow down a group leaving Ramadan night prayers, killing one and catastrophically injuring at least 11 more. Witnesses said an elderly man had fallen ill because of the heat and a group from the mosque stopped to help him when the vehicle hit them 'deliberately' and at high speed at 12.20am. The driver, 48, who is white was pinned to the ground by an Imam from the mosque who urged the angry crowd not to hurt him so the police could arrest him. Police arrived and he put him in a police van but the terror suspect was then filmed blowing a kiss to people looking at him inside after he waved on entering the vehicle.
An amazing moment was caught on mobile phone video when a giant hulk of a man went beast mode on a bunch of Somali refugees who were picking fights with revelers in Australia.
There have been several reports stating that the man doing the damage is the YouTube star and body builder, The Golden One.
The reports state The Golden One has been on vacation there but hasn't made a YouTube video about the incident because he doesn't want more attention drawn to it as it may get him in legal trouble. He is from Sweden and talks about the migrant crisis and the issues facing his homeland.
We can not confirm this is indeed The Golden One, these are just Internet rumors at this point. Either way, that's one epic badass.
SHOCKING footage shows injured victims moments after they were mowed down in a suspected copycat van attack in North London.
At least two people are thought to be dead and several are hurt and in what is feared to be an anti-Muslim terror atrocity near Finsbury Park Mosque.
This is the first look at the man who reportedly, deliberately ran over a group of Muslims leaving a Mosque in the Finsbury area of London.
Police say there have been “a number of casualties” in Seven Sisters Road near London’s Finsbury Park Station. Local ambulances have sent a number of resources.
The incident happened at 12.20am London time (9.20am AEST). People had been attending mosques in the area as part of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
The attack seems to be in retaliation to the recent spate of terror attacks in London and Manchester.
Several people have been injured after a van struck a crowd of pedestrians near a north London mosque in what police have called a "major incident".
One person was arrested following the collision near Finsbury Park Mosque in Seven Sisters Road. Officers were called at 00.20 BST and remain at the scene, the Metropolitan Police said.
The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said a van "intentionally" ran over worshippers. Many of the victims are believed to have just left evening prayers after breaking the Ramadan fast. London Ambulance Service said it had sent "a number of resources" to the scene.
Video posted online of the aftermath showed a scene of chaos as people tried to help the injured. One man could been seen giving CPR to a victim in the street while another man's head injury was treated with a makeshift dressing.
One eyewitness who lives in a flat on Seven Sisters Road told the BBC she saw people "shouting and screaming".
"Everyone was shouting 'a van's hit people'. "There was this white van stopped outside Finsbury Park Mosque that seems to have hit people who were coming out of the mosque after prayers finished." She said the road was "backed up" with police cars, ambulance and fire engines.
London Ambulance Service deputy director of operations Kevin Bate said: "We have sent a number of ambulance crews, advance paramedics and specialist responses teams to the scene. "An advance trauma team from London's Air Ambulance has also been dispatched by car. "We are working closely with other members of the emergency services at the scene. "Our priority is to assess the level and nature of injuries and ensure those in the most need are treated first and taken to the hospital."
Witness Cynthia Vanzella said on Twitter: "Horrible to watch police officers doing cardiac massage at people on the floor, desperately trying to save them. I just hope they did."
A prisoner who was allegedly tortured and had a disturbing ISIS slogan branded onto his forehead by his radical Islamic cellmate will walk away with $400,000 in compensation.
Michael Sean O’Keefe sued the state after the alleged razorblade torture left him fighting for his life when he was paired with then 18-year-old Bourhan Hraichie at Kempsey Prison in NSW.
He suffered a broken sternum, was put into an induced coma and was left with deep scars following the alleged prison cell torment, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Correctional Services settled the matter outside court and Mr O'Keefe - who was a former Army Reservist -was awarded between $400,000 and $500,000, a criminal lawyer told the publication.
His alleged attacker Hriachie charged with four counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent to murder and will face court on Monday.
Mr O’Keefe was released from Kempsey Prison after he spent several months behind bars for domestic violence offences.
Turkish police have fired water cannon and rubber pellets to disperse a crowd gathered in central Istanbul for the city's annual gay pride parade.
The police appeared intent on stopping the crowd gathering near Taksim Square on Sunday, a cameraman for the Reuters news agency reported.
Al Jazeera's Serpil Karacan, reporting from Istanbul, said opposition members of parliament formed a human chain to block the riot police.
Images and videos posted on social media showed several people carrying gay pride flags running away while being fired upon by a water cannon mounted on an armoured police vehicle.
As of 1400 GMT, the protesters have left Taksim Square and the nearby Istikal Street, and the city is "back to normal" according to our correspondent.
In an interview with Al Jazeera, photojournalist Bradley Secker, who is at the scene in Taksim, said the gay pride marchers were "puzzled" by the police action, given that a similar parade on June 21 went on in Istanbul without any incident.
According to the AFP news agency, police took action against the crowd when demonstrators began shouting slogans accusing President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of "fascism".
No official comment has so far been issued by the government, but there were reports that the parade was stopped as it was Ramadan.
However, Karajan said the parade, which has been held over the past 13 years without police intervention, occured peacefully during Ramadan last year.
Taksim is a traditional rallying ground for demonstrators and saw weeks of unrest in 2013.
California’s chief law officer, Attorney General Kamala Harris, declared this week, “an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal,” a statement in direct contradiction to federal law.
Illegally entering and remaining in the country is a federal crime. By stating that those who illegally enter or remain in the United States are not in violation of law is simply incorrect. However, many of these “undocumented immigrants” are not being prosecuted under the current administration.
Last November, President Obama declared effective amnesty for an estimated five million illegally present aliens. Since then, Representative Luis Gutierrez has traveled the country, partnering with fellow ‘immigration reform,’ Democrat legislators and activists, not advocating for citizens but for those illegally present within the U.S.
It does seem that Harris, declared candidate for the U.S. Senate, is implying in her words that these foreign nationals are not persistent criminals as she told KCAL 9, “I’m a career prosecutor. I’ve personally prosecuted everything from low-level offenses to homicides. Unfortunately, I know what crime looks like. I know what a criminal looks like who’s committing a crime. An undocumented immigrant is not a criminal.”
However, this inference is also flawed. While it cannot be said that every illegally present foreign national is necessarily perpetrating additional crimes, it can also not be said that all are not. There are numerous criminal aliens who have committed crimes before and since entering the country and remain illegally present within the boundaries of the U.S.
Just ask members of the group The Remembrance Project. Eric Zepeda’s mother, Brenda Sparks, recounts the story of her son’s death on the group’s site, noting that the illegal alien found at fault for the accident — that left her son dead and a passenger permanently disabled, — received only probation and remained in the U.S. as of last update.
Flshreport.org Editor John Fleischman commented on Harris’ statements to KCAL 9. “Right now she’s clearly pandering to the most extreme, left-wing elements of her own party.” He continued, for Harris to say, “People who are coming into America in blatant violation of federal immigration law aren’t criminals is to redefine the word ‘criminal’ as to no longer mean ‘committing a crime.’”
Philando Castile's mother Valerie Castile reacted to news of officer Jeronimo Yanez's acquittal by condemning the "cracker, bama ass, motherf**king state" of Minnesota and appeared to call for the officer who killed her son to be killed himself.
In a disturbing rant posted to Facebook which has been viewed over 600,000 times, Valerie Castile told her followers: "I just want to say one thing to everybody out there, I don't give a f**k what you do. Do what your heart desires, because that shit wasn't right."
"F**k the police, say whatever the f**k you want to say," she said. "This is the real Valerie Castile, I don't give a f**k no more."
"They gonna keep on killing us as long as we just sit down and take it," Castile said.
"If I had it my way, it's on and cracking," she said. "F**k that shit, I'm sick of this sh*t. Yall been killing motherf**kers all these years, but here in Minnesota, this cracker, bama ass, motherf**king state, f**k these f**king motherf**kers."
"With that, peace out, do your motherf**king thing, whatever. Have a nice life, I hope that motherf**ker die tonight! Hello!"
Many of her followers took her statements as a call for violence.
The top comments on her Facebook thanked her for "not calling for peace and all that wackness."
"Thank you for not calling for peace and all that wackness. And thank you for not making some wack statement expressing forgiveness and healing and love," one poster wrote. "Those f%$% days are over!" another person responded to the prior comment.
"The feeling of revolt will grow stronger every day among the peoples subjected to various degrees of exploitation, and they will take up arms to gain by force the rights which reason alone has not won them. -che," another poster wrote.
"We need to organize a national boycott of christmas~~shut this country down!!!! racist ass COUNTRY!!!!! Let's shut it down!! hit those purse strings show them we need business!!! Time to fight back we are at war!!" another said.

Three woman have been killed and 11 other people hurt in an explosion at an upscale Colombian shopping centre, the mayor has confirmed.
Witnesses told of being evacuated from movie theatres and stores after the blast in a second-floor women's bathroom at the upscale Centro Andino in the heart of Bogota's tourist district on Saturday afternoon.
Bogota mayor Enrique Penalosa called the blast a “cowardly terrorist attack”, and confirmed the deaths via Twitter. One of the women was a 23-year-old French national, he said.
Mr Penalosa said the French woman had spent six months volunteering in Colombia and was due to return to France.
He said another person was in a serious condition.
The other two victims, aged 27 and 31, were Colombian, local newspaper El Tiempo reported citing a statement from the Country Clinic hospital.

Another Islamic school is having its taxpayer funding cut off after a review uncovered serious financial irregularities.
The Islamic College of South Australia had fought Education Minister Simon Birmingham's decision in February to withdrawn $4 million in annual funding.
However the Adelaide school, with classes from kindergarten to year 12, has lost that battle, joining Muslim schools in Canberra and western Sydney on the financial outer with the Turnbull Government.
Senator Birmingham said the inner-city school from his home state had failed to comply with financial and accountability standards.
'It is disappointing that after the number of chances this school has been given and the constructive work of the department, the school has still failed to meet the reasonable standards and expectations placed on them,' he said on Thursday.
'This decision has not been taken lightly. However, the department was left with no choice.'
The minister says there has been a constant turnover of board members at the school since 2015.
There were also reports the latest principal had been sacked after the board rejected a proposed takeover by the Perth-based Australian Islamic College.

A protest on a Minnesota freeway over the acquittal of a police officer in the slaying of black motorist Philando Castile resulted in the arrest of 18 demonstrators early on Saturday, state police said.
The arrests came hours after St. Anthony Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty on Friday of second-degree manslaughter in 32-year-old Castile's July 2016 shooting death in the St. Paul suburb of Falcon Heights.
The shooting drew national attention after the victim's girlfriend live-streamed the bloody aftermath on social media, and it led to protests that have fueled debate across the country over police use of force in encounters with minorities.
Protesters held a peaceful demonstration on Friday at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul and then about 1,500 converged on Interstate 94 in the city, blocking the freeway, a Minnesota State Patrol spokeswoman said in an email statement.
Authorities repeatedly asked protesters to leave before making 18 arrests shortly after midnight on Saturday, the statement said. Unlawful assembly and other charges are pending against them, it said.
Among those listed as arrested for alleged unlawful assembly were at least two journalists.
Yanez, the son of a Mexican immigrant, testified during the trial in Ramsey County District Court that he feared for his life after Castile began reaching for a firearm that Castile had disclosed he had in his possession. Yanez shot Castile five times.
U.S. Senator Al Franken of Minnesota on Saturday said Castile did not deserve to die.
"Whatever one's opinion of the outcome of this case, we must come together and take concrete action to reckon with and dismantle the systemic racial inequalities that lead to far too many of these deaths," Franken wrote on Facebook.
Jim Devine, a Democratic strategist, sent out a tweet from his Twitter account Wednesday afternoon with the hashtag "HuntRepublicanCongressmen" after the shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise.
"I think it speaks for itself," Devine said of the tweet on Thursday afternoon. "Yesterday's events are the result of escalating rhetoric and vitriol that has been evident in our political system culminating with the election of our president and the chickens came home to roost, you know?"
The tweet was first reported by the MoreMonmouthMusings.net political blog.
Devine said that the tweet may come as a shock to some, but it may awaken others to the vicious political environment that he said has emerged in the last couple years and swelled dramatically since President Donald Trump's election.
"I think some people will be shocked and offended," he said, "and other people might be woken up to the fact that this is nothing that wasn't invited by things like Sarah Palin's crosshairs on Gabby Giffords before she was shot."
While on the question, “How would you define fake news?” Malcolm Nance had a bone to pick with Breitbart editor Alex Marlow.
"You are Breitbart, right? And you don't do fake news? That's what you're asserting here? Yeah you know there was this article about a 35-year counterterrorism expert who claimed that they wanted Trump Tower attacked that was written in Breitbart. I got thirty-one death threats from that. And that came from your website. So you're going to secure that right now? You are going to apologize to me? I'm sorry to say. I'm sorry to say. I spent decades hunting terrorists. Yes, so that's fake as hell."
"You don't have to share your bonafides with me," Alex said. "I respect you. I respect your service."
“Your followers threatened my family, my children, my wife," Nance replied.
"Are you really suggesting that Breitbart doesn't get death threats? Alex replied trying to deflect. "That our lives aren't put in danger?"
"No, No, No," Nance said. "You can apologize to me now. Alright? I'm not threatening you."
"Show me the story," Alex said. "And if the story is as you describe it I'll be happy to offer an apology."
"I will come to your office to see that retraction," Nance replied.
Now more than ever, conservatives can have this debate among themselves: are the rantings of Keith Olbermann worth transcribing and ridiculing? If Olbermann doing his best impression of Sam the Eagle from The Muppet Show mattered when he was on MSNBC, a widely distributed cable channel, did they really matter during the failure of Current TV? And do they matter as Olbermann now descends to a YouTube series for GQ Magazine, best known for selling overpriced suits to male hipsters?
I would suggest they matter as an example of how desperate the Left is sounding after the election of President Donald Trump. CNN’s media unit circulated Olbermann’s latest rhetorical binge-and-purge in its daily newsletter, so let’s take a look.
We are at war with Russia. Or perhaps more correctly we have lost a war with Russia without a battle. We are not a democracy, we are no longer a free people. We are the victims of a bloodless coup – so far, a bloodless coup! – engineered by Russia with at best the traitorous indifference of the Republican Party and Donald John Trump, a man, to borrow a phrase from a December long ago, will live in infamy!
MSNBC “AM Joy” host Joy Reid reacted Saturday to House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise’s (R-LA) shooting, calling it a “delicate” situation because she hopes he recovers but added she cannot ignore his history regarding race, same-sex marriage and gun control.
“[I]t’s a delicate thing because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid said. “He did come to leadership after some controversy over attending a white nationalist event, which he says he didn’t know what it was. He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He voted for the House healthcare bill, which as you said would gut health care for millions of people, including three million children, and he co-sponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semi-automatic weapons. Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside at the moment?”

The Portuguese government has declared three days of national mourning following what Prime Minister Antonio Costa has called "the greatest tragedy of human lives" witnessed in the country in years. A forest fire raging in the mountainous, central Pedrogao Grande area since Saturday (June 17) has killed more than 60 people and wounded 59 - five of whom are in a serious condition. According to Portugal's Interior Minister, most of the victims were caught in their vehicles on the road.
