American among 27 dead after terrorists storm Mali hotel

Top Story
An American was among at least 27 people killed in Mali’s capital Friday after grenade-hurling Al Qaeda gunmen stormed a posh hotel — taking scores of hostages and setting in motion a bloody standoff. Several hostages were able to save themselves from slaughter by reciting parts of the Koran. They were freed just before the fiends mounted a last stand at the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako. Before darkness fell, a multi-nation contingent of troops — Malian, French and American Special Forces — sealed off the hotel’s exits and rushed inside guns blazing. When the siege ended, five assailants were found dead, officials said.

Uncredited/AP The ISIS killer known as "Jihadi John" was targeted by a drone strike. Jihadi John has gone to hell. A U.S. drone strike most likely finally wiped the masked ISIS executioner known as “Jihadi John” off the face of the Earth, officials said Thursday. “We are 99% sure we got him,” a senior U.S. military official told Fox News. The air strike Thursday near Raqqa, Syria, targeted the 27-year-old barbaric British monster — but his death could not be verified early Friday, in part because he likely was vaporized. The Pentagon said in a statement that the military was “assessing the results” of the strike. One unnamed official told ABC News the planned mission to take out John, whose real name is Mohammed Emwazi, was “flawless” and a “clean hit” with no collateral damage and that Em

Share This article Imagine a new board game, a combination of Clue and Monopoly where the best guess isn’t necessarily the right one, but rather the one that generates the most fame and funds. What would you call it? A cynic might suggest ‘archeology’ would be fitting, particularly when they hear the oftentimes fantastical speculations archeologists offer for sometimes pedestrian findings. But we shouldn’t be too hard on them, because after all, storytelling is their job. A series of papers just published in the journal eLife suggests that the most important skill an archeologist needs is to be really good at eliminating alternative explanations. The story emerges from the Rising Star cave in South Africa. Deep within the Dinaledi chamber, a place accessible only to extremely skilled

An Italian bakery screwed up a little girl birthday wish for a "My Little Pony" cake. They didn’t pony up! An embarrassing mix-up at an Italian bakery saw a little girl who wanted a "My Little Pony" cake being given a "Little Tony" sweet treat instead. Evelina, 9, was left seriously disappointed after taking delivery of the birthday pastry from the shop in Gangi, Sicily, earlier this month, The Telegraph reported. She'd wanted an image of the popular children's cartoon animal to adorn the dessert. But she ended up receiving a cake featuring the image of a bouffant-haired former singer called "Little Tony" Ciacci in a white jacket. The Elvis-style crooner was popular in the 1950s and ’60s. He died aged 72 in May 2013. Italy's consumer association Codacons said that the girl's family would
