LONDON (AP) — A British teenager has been sentenced to two years in a youth detention center for compromising the email and phone accounts of senior U.S. government officials in what a judge called acts of "cyber-terrorism." Prosecutors say Kane Gamble conned call centers during 2015-16 into revealing information that got him into the accounts of then-FBI director Mark Giuliano, then-Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, then-CIA chief John Brennan and other officials. They say Gamble, who was part of a group of hackers called "Crackas With Attitude," put some of the information ...
Authorities in Florida say the man who shot two sheriff's deputies to death at a restaurant earlier this week had entered the establishment before firing the weapon. Earlier reports had said the Gilchrest County deputies were shot through a window from the outside the restaurant in Trenton, west of Gainesville. Gilchrest County deputies Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey were killed at the Ace China restaurant. Officials say 58-year-old John Hubert Highnote of Bell shot them before killing himself. Levy County Lt. Scott Tummond said at a news conference Friday that the shooter entered the restaurant and immediately opened fire, leaving the deputies with no time to react. Authorities in neighboring counties have been acting as public information officers on behalf of Gilch...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Southwest is sending a letter of apology, a $5,000 check and a $1,000 travel voucher to passengers who were on a flight that made an emergency landing in Philadelphia following an engine explosion. Chairman Gary Kelly says in the letter that the money is to help cover any "immediate financial needs." An engine on a Southwest jet exploded Tuesday, and debris hit the plane. Forty-three-year-old banker Jennifer Riordan of Albuquerque, New Mexico, was fatally injured when she was sucked partway out of the jet through a shattered window. Passenger Marty Martinez of Dallas says he has no immediate plan to cash the check. He wants to talk to a lawyer. Eric Zilbert of Davis, California, says that after consulting with an attorney, he will cash his. A public memorial s...
WASHINGTON (AP) — James Comey and President Donald Trump seem to disagree on most everything, but the ex-FBI director's memos show consensus on at least one thing: the need to hunt down leakers. The two men bonded over the idea of a proposed leak crackdown, even sharing a chuckle over a crude joke involving jailed journalists, according to memos written by Comey and obtained by The Associated Press. The jocularity over leakers and journalists is striking given the otherwise tense nature of their conversations, which touched on loyalty pledges, Russian prostitutes and open FBI investigations. The memos kept by Comey show his unease with Trump's requests and his concern that the president was blurring the bright line between politics and law enforcement, includin...
BALTIMORE (AP) — Carryout food and drink containers made from plastic foam are no longer welcome in the city of Baltimore. Mayor Catherine Pugh signed a bill Thursday giving businesses 18 months to stop using containers made from polystyrene foam. It also prohibits restaurants and other food vendors from using cups, plates, dishes, bowls and trays or any similar items made from this material. After that, businesses will face $1,000 fines for violations. The City Council unanimously passed the bill last month after it was introduced by Councilman John Bullock. Versions that previously failed had offered businesses just three months to phase out the containers.
Former Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance has been sentenced Friday morning. Dance was sentenced to six months of jail time concurrent on each charge, two years of supervised probation and 700 community service hours to begin next Friday at the Baltimore County Detention Center. The remainder of a five-year sentence will be suspended. "I'm sorry, I'm deeply sorry. I'm remorseful," Dance said in court. Dance declined to comment as he left the courthouse. The state recommended Dance be sentenced to five years with all but 18 months suspended. State Prosecutor Emmet C. Davitt said outside Baltimore County Circuit Court that his team was "gratified" that Dance will at least serve time behind bars. He said it sent a message to all public off...

Gazans attach firebombs to kites, fly them over border fence to attack Israelis, damage property. Gazans protesting along the Gaza border have begun attaching firebombs to kites to fly over the fence into Israel in a new tactic as the riots enter their fourth week. For protests set for Friday, Gazans were hoping to send dozens of kites over the fence, including some carrying notes telling Israelis "there is no place for you in Palestine." On the eve of Friday's protests, a group of terrorists worked to create the flying firebombs under a tree in an olive orchard hundreds of meters from the Israeli border east of Gaza City. As AFP watched, three young men carried one kite dozens of meters towards the border before stopping to set the bottle alight. With the flame lit, ...
MOSCOW (AP) — Russia's foreign minister said Friday that the U.S. sought out and respected Moscow's positions in Syria when it launched its air strikes last week. Lavrov noted that despite the escalating tensions between Moscow and Washington, the U.S. made sure it didn't harm any Russian personnel and positions during the strikes against the regime of President Bashar Assad following a suspected chemical attack on the town of Douma. "We told them where our red lines were, including the geographical red lines," Lavrov told Russian state television. "The results have shown that they haven't crossed those lines." Moscow had warned the U.S. before the strike that it could hit back if the U.S. actions jeopardize Russian servicemen in Syria, and the allies had given...
WASHINGTON (AP) — Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director, is "very upset and disappointed" by comments made by his former boss James Comey that contradict his account of a disclosure to the news media, McCabe's lawyer said Friday. "Andy has at all times attempted to, and believes he's been successful in, playing it straight with Jim," Bromwich told reporters as he again attacked an internal investigation process that led to McCabe's firing from the FBI last month and a criminal referral to federal prosecutors. The disagreement stems from conflicting recollections about a conversation the two men had following an October 2016 Wall Street Journal story about an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation. McCabe says he told Comey after the article was publis...

NEW YORK (AP) — The Democratic National Committee has sued President Donald Trump's campaign, his son, his son-in-law, the Russian Federation and WikiLeaks, saying they conspired to help Trump win the 2016 presidential election. The DNC filed the lawsuit Friday in federal court in Manhattan. It seeks unspecified damages and an order to prevent further interference with DNC computer systems. The lawsuit says Trump and his associates had relationships with Russia that enabled creation of a Trump-Russia conspiracy. The DNC says Russia "mounted a brazen attack on American democracy" beginning with a cyberattack on its computers. It said the hack penetrated DNC computers and phone systems and extracted tens of thousands of documents and emails. Trump has said repeatedly there wa...

NEW YORK (AP) — Canada's Fairfax Financial Holding has placed a bid of $300 million to buy Toys R Us's Canadian operations in bankruptcy. According to court papers filed late Thursday, the bidder is taking on a role of a "stalking horse" in a court-approved auction set for Monday in New York. That means it could be outbid in the auction if other buyers come in with a higher offer. The bid from Fairfax surpassed the $215 million offer that Isaac Larian, the CEO of privately held toy company MGA Entertainment, made last week. Larian has also offered $675 million for its U.S. stores. In March, Toys R Us said it would be liquidating its U.S. business. Fairfax is a holding company involved in property and casualty insurance and reinsurance and investment management.

BERLIN (AP) — Berlin police evacuated thousands of people from a central area of the German capital Friday and shut down the main train station as a precaution while they defused and removed an unexploded World War II bomb found during recent construction work. Some 10,000 residents and workers were forced to leave a two-square-kilometer (almost a square mile) area, including the train station, while bomb experts defused the 500-kilogram (1,100-pound) British bomb dropped during the war. Trains were prevented from stopping at the busy station from 10 a.m., and through traffic was shut down at 11:30 a.m. before experts began their work, German rail operator Deutsche Bahn said. Some 300,000 travelers use the station daily. Bomb disposal experts were able to successfully remove the d...

Israel's Defense Minister has shrugged off threats by Gaza militants who released a video clip showing army officers through the cross-hairs of a Palestinian sniper. Avigdor Lieberman was visiting near the Gaza border Friday when asked if he was worried. He answered "you see I arrived here and came without a bullet proof jacket even." He said he trusts the Israeli army to protect him. The Palestinian Islamic Jihad group had released a clip of senior Israeli officers seen through a sniper scope. Gaza's Islamic militant Hamas rulers have called for a mass rally at the border as part of a weeks-long campaign of protests against a decade-old blockade of the territory. Israel is closely guarding the fence and warns it will not tolerate attempts to breach it. ___ 4:50 p.m. Gaza&...
