North Korea: US Marine arrested in connection with violent raid of embassy in Madrid, sources say
News ImageA former US Marine who was allegedly involved in a raid of the North Korean embassy in Madrid has been arrested, according to sources familiar with the case.Christopher Ahn was arrested on Thursday in connection with the incident, when a group of at least 10 people stormed into the embassy, restrained and physically beat some personnel and held them hostage for hours in February.Spanish investigators have said the group stole computers and hard drives before fleeing to the United States, where they shared the stolen material with the FBI.US federal agents also reportedly raided the apartment of Adrian Hong, the leader of self-styled human right group Cheollima Civil Defence, this week in relation to the investigation.Cheollima Civil Defence, which is seeking to overthrow North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, has claimed responsibility for the incident but denied that they used violence.Mr Ahn is thought to be the first person arrested in relation to the raid.A Spanish judicial source said the stolen material has been returned to the North Korean embassy, two weeks after the FBI sent it to the Spanish court investigating the raid.The incident came just days before the second summit between Donald Trump and Mr Kim, which resulted in a failure to come to agreement about the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.North Koreas foreign ministry denounced the incident as a grave terrorist attack and suggested that the FBI was involved.The US State Department has denied that accusation.Cheollima Civil Defence has said the incident was not an attack and claimed it had been invited into the embassy.We were invited into the embassy, and contrary to reports, no one was gagged or beaten, the group wrote on their website.Out of respect for the host nation of Spain, no weapons were used. All occupants in the embassy were treated with dignity and necessary caution.The group also claimed that the US government was not involved with the incident until after the event.However, a judge for Spains National Court has accused the group of violently beating embassy officials and putting them in shackles and flanges.The judge also said three members of the group took an official into the embassy basement and tried to persuade him to defect from North Korea.Although documents released by the Spanish court said several members, including Mr Hong, had fled to the United States, their whereabouts are unclear.The court is seeking their extradition.Agencies contributed to this report

Islamic State behind attack on Saudi security north of Riyadh: Arabiya TV
News ImageThe assailants who attacked a state security building northwest of Riyadh on Sunday are Saudi militants who belong to Islamic State, Saudi-owned Arabiya TV said in a tweet, citing its own correspondent. Saudi state media said authorities thwarted the attack by four militants targeting the Mabaheth (domestic intelligence) station in Zulfi, a small city about 250 km (155 miles) northwest of the capital Riyadh. There has been no Islamic State claim of responsibility for the attack so far, and the authorities did not officially identify the assailants.

Solemn service to mark 20th anniversary of Columbine High massacreA week-long series of events commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre culminates on Saturday with a remembrance ceremony celebrating the lives of the 13 victims slain in the rampage. Betty Shoels, the aunt of murdered student Isaiah Shoels, said her 18-year-old nephew was a fun-loving athlete who was always smiling, despite feeling out of place as one of the school's few African-American students. Evan Todd was a sophomore at Columbine two decades ago when he was wounded in the school library, where 10 of the students were killed.

The Army Passed on This Glock Gun (And It Could Be Your Gain)
News ImageThe ultimate Glock?The Army may have chosen Sig Sauers P320 for its Modular Handgun System program over Glocks offerings, but that doesnt mean you have to: Glock plans on releasing a civilian variant of its 9mm Glock 19 pistol to civilian buyers this month, the company announced today.(This article by Jared Keller originally appeared at Task & Purpose. Follow Task & Purpose on Twitter. This article first appeared in 2018.)Glocks commercial pistol, dubbed the 19X, is the companys first stab at a crossover model, combining the Glock 17 frame with a Glock 19 barrel. With a marksman barrel and ambidextrous slide-stop levers, the pistol is designed to be as versatile as it is powerful, almost like a [1911] Commander-style situation where youve got the shorter barrel with the full-sized grip frame, as national sales manager Bob Radecki told Army Times on Jan. 2.The new 9mm Glock 19X from Glock

This tiny RC car could absolutely destroy your car in a race
News ImageA 0-to-60 mph time of under three seconds is something that all but the most wealthy supercar owners are ever likely to enjoy. A 0-to-100 mph time of just over five seconds? Well now we're in territory that few production automobiles have ever dared tread, but it's all in a day's work for RC enthusiasts who seek to achieve the most ludicrous speeds with their high-tech toys.A recent video posted by YouTuber Innovation RC clearly demonstrates just how insane RC cars can be, with one of the pint-sized speed demons hitting an absolutely absurd speed of 124 mph in less than eight seconds, all while hauling a not-super-light action camera and traveling over what seems to be a fairly rough surface.Radio-controlled vehicles used to be near the top of every kid's wishlist, and perhaps some of them still are, but these aren't your grandfather's RC toys. These tiny cars are built with performance in mind, and enthusiasts regularly modify them in an effort to push the hardware to its absolute limit. They can set you back several hundreds of dollars, and that's without any additional tuning or upgrades. But they're fast... really, really fast.Just check this out:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpdRrPYcEVsThat's 124 mph while hauling a camera that, if I had to guess, doesn't look like the most aerodynamic thing in the world. Not to mention the fact that the pavement being raced on here appears to be anything but smooth. It's easy to imagine this little car topping out at much higher speeds under ideal conditions, but it's still an incredibly impressive run considering the circumstances.In fact, in a subsequent video the same car can be seen hitting a top speed of 133 mph, though without a GoPro on board it's a little bit less interesting to watch:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yo_oCzCHCxMI want one.

FBI arrests member of rightwing militia accused of detaining migrants
News ImageLarry Mitchell Hopkins accused of illegal weapons possession after videos apparently showed men stopping migrants in New MexicoMen including Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the militia calling itself the United Constitutional Patriots, share cigarettes while patrolling the US-Mexico border in Sunland Park, New Mexico last month. Photograph: Paul Ratje/AFP/Getty ImagesA member of an armed rightwing militia group accused of illegally detaining migrants at the US-Mexico border has been arrested, officials said on Saturday.The FBI arrested Larry Mitchell Hopkins, 69, for alleged unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition , days after his group posted videos that appeared to show armed men stopping migrants at the border in New Mexico, ordering them to sit on the ground and coordinating with US border patrol agents to have them taken into custody.Todays arrest by the FBI indicates clearly that the rule of law should be in the hands of trained law enforcement officials, not armed vigilantes, the New Mexico attorney general, Hector Balderas, said in a statement.On Thursday, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) called for an investigation into the pro-Trump, anti-immigrant men who have been patrolling the border and calling themselves the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP).The ACLU in New Mexico described the group as an armed fascist militia organization made up of vigilantes, saying they were working to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum and had directly made illegal arrests and held migrants at gunpoint.Hopkins role in the group was unclear, and it was also not clear if he was facing any charges directly related to the videos of the men stopping migrants. The New Mexico attorney generals office described Hopkins as a dangerous felon who should not have weapons around children and families and labeled him an armed individual detaining migrants at the border.An FBI statement on the arrest did not mention the militia group or the detention of migrants, but noted that Hopkins has also gone by the name Johnny Horton Jr and that he was due to appear in court on Monday.In one video posted last Monday night by Jim Benvie, a member of the armed group, it appeared the men were ordering around dozens of migrants, including many children, and telling them to sit. Benvie narrated: Theres no border patrol here. This is us.The men appeared to call border patrol agents, who later were seen. The ACLU, in a letter to state officials, said the group had targeted nearly 300 migrants in Sunland Park, New Mexico, which is along the Mexico border and adjacent to El Paso, Texas.The militia members advocated for Trumps proposed border wall on the video streams and echoed the presidents anti-migrant rhetoric, warning of an invasion.There have also been concerns that the men, who wear military-style clothes, could be misrepresenting themselves as border patrol agents. In another video, Benvie filmed himself stopping a group of four adults and three children and said border patrol as he approached, before calling for another member of his group to join him. In an apparent call to border patrol, one man said: Hello, Ive got seven over here.The UCP has previously presented itself as a group of volunteers aiding border patrol and supporting Trump. In recent years, there have been numerous reports of an increase in paramilitary groups and xenophobic activists surveilling the border, working with US agents and targeting undocumented people.The UCP has not responded to the Guardians requests for comment.On Thursday, a Customs and Border Protection spokesperson said border patrol welcomes assistance from the community but does not endorse private groups or organizations taking enforcement matters into their own hands.The Daily Beast reported that Hopkins has a history of pushing far-right conspiracies and has a conviction for impersonating an officer and felony firearm possession. He could not be reached on Saturday and it was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.Stephanie Corte, an immigrant rights campaign strategist with the ACLU in New Mexico, said her group was still trying to make contact with the detained migrants and was uncertain if any had been released.Our next focus is to try to get their story and making sure they feel safe to tell their story of being held at gunpoint, she told the Guardian, adding that the ACLU would explore legal options.She said she hoped authorities would work to make sure this does not happen again.We absolutely believe that this was completely unlawful, she said. Were hoping those involved will be brought to justice.

Mueller report: Elizabeth Warren becomes first 2020 candidate to call for Trumps impeachment
News ImageElizabeth Warren has become the first 2020 election candidate to make a clear call for impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump following the release of special counsel Robert Muellers redacted report.The Massachusetts senator tweeted that it would be damaging to ignore a presidents repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behaviour and would allow future presidents to act in the same way. She added: The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States.Mr Mueller, who examined whether Mr Trumps campaign coordinated with Russia during the 2016 election and whether the president tried to interfere with the inquiry, made no clear verdict on obstruction of justice.His report did, however, lay out 11 possible attempts to influence the investigation although he indicated the president was mostly unsuccessful because his aides refused to carry out orders.Other Democrats running in 2020 have been more cautious on impeachment than Ms Warren in their response to the publication. Julian Castro said it would be perfectly reasonable for congress to open up those proceedings.Both Jay Inslee of Washington and Eric Swalwell both of whom have recently launched presidential campaigns said only that the idea should not be taken off the table.Other Democratic candidates, including senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, suggested it was too soon to start impeachment proceedings.&> The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States.&> &> Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) &> &> April 19, 2019We dont have an unredacted version of the report. We dont have the underlying materials that that report was written upon. We havent had yet an opportunity to have hearings where we interview Mueller, said Mr Booker said during a campaign stop in Reno, Nevada.I think thats there definitely a conversation to be had on that subject, but first I want to hear from Bob Mueller and really understand what exactly is the evidence that supports the summary that weve been given, said Ms Harris on impeachment hearings.Pete Buttigieg, the Indiana mayor also running for the White House, suggested it was not the best way to get rid of Mr Trump.He told NBCs Late Night with Seth Meyers: If we really want to send Trumpism into the history books, the best thing we can do is defeat it decisively at the ballot box in 2020.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, while not running in 2020, has signed on to an impeachment resolution from fellow Democrat, Rashida Tlaib.The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler, has issued a subpoena for the full Mueller report and expects the Justice Department to comply by 1 May. Attorney general William Barr is to appear before the committee on 2 May, while Mr Nadler has also summoned Mr Mueller to testify by 23 May.The only Republican who had declared he will run against Donald Trump in 2020 said on Friday he was horrified by special counsel Robert Muellers report, but said he could not back impeachment for political reasons.The former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld told ABC News: Its very unlikely that he would ever be convicted in the Senate where you need a two thirds vote.

Coloradans mark 20th anniversary of a dark day: Columbine shooting
News ImageIt has been 20 years since two heavily armed young men in dark trenchcoats entered a Colorado high school and launched a bloody attack that seared the word "Columbine" into the American psyche, forever transforming the debate on gun rights and school violence. As people on Saturday prepared to mark the anniversary of the massacre in Littleton, Colorado -- in which teenaged shooters Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris killed 12 Columbine High School students and a teacher before turning their guns on themselves -- there were words of grief and loss and anger. School shootings, once almost unheard of, have become a tragic feature of American life -- requiring all schools to tighten security, forcing even six-year-olds to take part in traumatic "live-shooter" drills.

At Easter mass, Parisians pray for Notre-Dame's swift restoration
News ImageThe archbishop of Paris, Michel Aupetit, began the service by drawing a parallel between the planned reconstruction of Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral and the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, celebrated every year by Christians at Easter. "We will rise up again and our cathedral will rise up again," he told the congregation, which included the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, and the head of the Paris fire service, General Jean-Claude Gallet. The mass had originally been scheduled to be held at Notre-Dame, whose spire was destroyed and its roof gutted in Monday's blaze as rescuers put their lives at risk to salvage the rest of the centuries-old cathedral and its priceless artifacts.

Israeli F-16 Jets Blew Up a Syrian Missile Factory (And Russias Air Defense Missiles Didnt Strike)
News ImageAt 2:30 in the morning on April 13, 2019, around a dozen missiles tore over the night sky of Hama province, Syria, launched by Israeli F-16 jets flying over Lebanon.In response, short-range Syrian air missiles arced into the night sky trailing plumes of fire from their rocket motors. One or two can be seen exploding mid-air, possibly having have hit their target.However, as has happened in over 200 other Israeli air strikes on targets in Syria, the defensive fire proved inadequate. The weapons struck three Syrian targets.The first was a training base called the Academy. A second site was reportedly a storage facility for surface-to-surface missile launchers located near the Masyaf National Hospital. Afterward, the pro-Assad Al-Masdar news agency published a picture of an annihilated M-600 Tishereen ballistic missile launcher.The M-600 is a Syrian license-manufactured version of the Iranian Fateh-110 short-range ballistic missile, a type Tehran has used for missile strikes on targets in Syria, Iraq and Israel since 2017.

Team Trump plots revenge on Mueller amid calls to 'investigate the investigators'
News ImageDonald Trump and his allies are attempting to turn his two-year Russia investigation sagainto a political boost for the 2020 presidential election in the wake of the Mueller report. The presidents Justice Department is looking into the inquirys origins to see if US intelligence over-stepped the line, cheered on by supporters who want to investigate the investigators. The Trump re-election campaign is fundraising off the report, attempting to raise $1 million with emails titled EXONERATED (again) and CONFIRMED: NO COLLUSION. Figures close to the White House have also told The Sunday Telegraph that they believe Mr Trump couldbenefit from any impeachment move, triggering a backlash from US voters who see it as rushed. The emerging strategy suggests that far from drawing a line under the report by special counsel Robert Mueller, Mr Trump is preparing to use it as a rallying cry for his support base. In tweets late on Friday night, Mr Trump dubbed Mr Muellers investigation a big, fat, waste of time, energy and money and signposted his determinationto scrutinise how it begun. It is now finally time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even spying or treason, he tweeted. This should never happen again! Mr Muellers findings, published on Thursday after a 22-month investigation, found there was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin in the 2016 US election. It also did not recommend an obstruction of justice charge against Mr Trump. He pointedly refused to say no crime had been committed by the president but handed the decision to the Justice Department, who brought no charges. Those two top-line outcomes have allowed the president to declare no collusion, no obstruction and his legal team to announce total victory. pic.twitter.com/222atp7wuB Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2019 The 448-report itself paints a more complex picture, one where Mr Trump repeatedly attempted to thwart the Mueller investigation and both lie himself or make subordinatesdo likewise. The president urged his legal counsel to say he was not ordered to fire Mr Mueller when he was, the report found. Mr Trump also issued misleading statements to the press to deny reports now confirmed. The Democrats have attempted to force the spotlight on this unethical behavior but are split on how to proceed whether to begin impeachment proceedings now or wait until the 2020 election to remove him from office. William Barr, Mr Trumps newly installed US attorney general, announced shortly before the Mueller reports release that he would look into how US government officials begun the Russia investigation before the 2016 election. William Barr, Donald Trump's recently appointed US attorney general, oversaw the handling of the Mueller report Credit: MANDEL NGAN / AFP The presidents allies see political advantage, framing the investigation as a deep state ploy to thwart Mr Trump despite the insistence of those involved that they were acting in the public interest. Sebastian Gorka, a former deputy assistant in the White House, told this newspaper: Its clear that what weve seen in the last two years is an attempt to use the American intelligence community in a politically motivated spying scandal. Emails sent out by the Trump campaign in the 24 hours after the report to supporters also used the findings to generate a new wave of funds. Sorry haters: NO COLLUSION & EXONERATION AGAIN! How many times do I have to be exonerated before they stop? WHAT A JOKE! read one line in a fund-raising email, sent in Mr Trump's name on Friday. The attacks and lies will keep coming because Democrats know they dont stand a chance in 2020. Thats why we need to fight back BIGGER and STRONGER than ever before. It went on: Let's send a HUGE message to all of the Trump Haters by raising $1,000,000 in the NEXT 24 HOURS. The email ended by saying that Mr Trump would be handed a list naming everyone who had contributed before the 24-hour deadline.The Trump campaign has since confirmed it hit the $1 million mark within 24 hours.

Is 4/20 on the way to becoming marijuana's Hallmark holiday?
News ImageOnce an underground celebration of weed smoking, the annual event is turning into big business in the era of legalizationTyler Shumway of Aurora, Colorado, lights up a joint at 420pm in Civic Center Park on 20 April 2012 in Denver. Photograph: Marc Piscotty/Getty ImagesToday may be the day that marijuana officially loses its cool. April 20, 4/20, the once underground national holiday for dope smokers, appears to have sold out to The Man.The origins of 4/20 are as disputed as the last pack of gummy bears after a long smoking session. Some say it was once police code for marijuana smoking in progress apparently untrue and others claim it was invented by high school stoners in Marin county, California, who would meet at 4.20pm to get high.No matter what the origins its big business for a rapidly growing industry the Black Friday of getting high.Sign up for the US morning briefingThis years 4/20 falls on a Saturday and is expected to be the biggest sales day yet for legal marijuana, exceeding an 111% sales spike record last year. Stoners will gather at Denvers Civic Center Park to celebrate, with clouds of marijuana smoke drifting over the crowds, some still in tie-dye and preaching cosmic one-ness.4/20 doesnt have a Hallmark card yet but it cant be far off. Of the hundreds of tie-in promotions this year, Lyft is offering a $4.20 credit on a single ride in Colorado and in select cities in the US and Canada. The fast-food chain Carls Jr is using a Denver outlet to test a hamburger infused with CBD oil.But there is a serious side to it. This year the ice-cream maker Ben & Jerrys is calling on consumers to pressure lawmakers to expunge prior marijuana convictions for anyone arrested for smoking pot. Considering those arrests are four times more likely to affect African Americans, the social justice implications are clear.According to Kit Yarrow, a consumer psychologist at Golden Gate University, 4/20 is on its way to becoming a mainstream national holiday and thats largely a function of the booming marijuana business. Arcview, a cannabis investment and market research firm, estimates US retail sales of cannabis products jumped to $10.5bn last year, a threefold increase from 2017.Its still a celebration of marijuana but the conversation has been expanded by brands that tie into the cannabis industry and for marketers to tie into something that has a coolness to it, Yarrow says. That conversation, she adds, is increasingly focused on people wondering what role cannabis may play in their life.The stoner dude mentality is still there but there is another that is more focused on marijuanas medicinal properties and thats growing in stature, said Yarrow.The marijuana business could soon be dwarfed by the market for products using CBD, a cannabis compound from the hemp plant that supposedly has health benefits but doesnt get you high.CBD, which is not listed as a controlled substance, can now be found in candies, coffee and other food, drinks and dietary supplements, along with perfume, lotions, creams and soap.Gus Dabais stands outside his Sidewalk Wellness store in San Francisco, where CBD oil-infused products are popular items. Photograph: Eric Risberg/APAccording to Louis Zerobnick, a veteran Colorado cannabis promoter, the CBD industry has the potential to become a far larger business than an industry based on THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. As it is, he says, the marijuana industry has moved far beyond its hippie-stoner roots and is increasingly dominated by big industry and big banking.A lot of the old hippies arent going to make it in this new industry. Although theyre responsible for it, and did the activism to make it happen, you find that marijuana companies want to bring in people who have worked in other government-regulated industries. Thats the level of professionalism thats now required to turn it into a real business, said Zerobnick.Zerobnick thinks 4/20 could one day exceed the size of other semi-official holidays, including Valentines Day and Halloween. Its a national, non-denominational, non-racial holiday mostly celebrated by getting high, Zerobnick said, reeling off events scheduled in Florida, Chicago and the High Times Cannabis Cup in California. For people who use cannabis 4/20 is as big as Christmas.And in the meantime Big Business is moving in to harsh the original stoners buzz. John Boehner, the permatanned former Republican speaker of the House, is a director of one of the USs largest cannabis businesses, Acreage Holdings. Coca-Cola has joint venture with a cannabis company that could lead to Coke High. Big tobacco is waiting in the wings.The 4/20 the counterculture pioneers who campaigned for legalization may well be wondering if there is a high price for a legal high.We dont necessarily like it but everybody knows it, says Zerobnick. At the same time that a lot of old hippies wont make it, he says, many could become billionaires when theyre bought out and their strains turned into commercial success.

Advocates for the trans community have long complained that gay and lesbian people dominate the LGBTQ movement.Recognizing the trans community as a separate -- though equally sneaker-worthy community -- is emblematic of a larger cultural shift.Trans people are clearly moving into the public spotlight, and they can show that (if Converse is their thing) on their feet.Twitter was largely enthusiastic about the move.&> TransIsBeautiful &> Thank you @Converse for making a trans PRIDE shoe this year! &> My 11 year-old-son is ECSTATIC! pic.twitter.com/E6lcqIEvfA&> &> -- Rachel Q.

Army Vet Sues Company That Made 'Defective' Earplugs for the Military
News ImageA Texas veteran is suing the company he says knowingly produced and sold defective earplugs which were issued to the U.S. military, leading him and many others to develop hearing problems, including tinnitus.(This article by Haley Britzky originally appeared at Task & Purpose. Follow Task & Purpose on Twitter. This article first appeared in 2018.)Sgt. Scott D. Rowe, who served in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2003 to 2004, told the Houston Chronicle that he's "never at peace" from the "high-pitched frequency" he hears every day, as a result of the earplugs he received from 3M Company. Rowe told the Chronicle that 3M "lied," and "took our well-being for jeopardy while we're out there protecting the country."Rowe says in his lawsuit that 3M was aware of the defects in earplugs when it acquired the company that originally developed them, Aearo Technologies, in 2008. He says, according to the Chronicle, that the earplugs were made too short, which makes them difficult to be put deeply into the ear canal, causing the earplug to loosen and sound to get in around them.

Take a Look at the SW1911 Gun: Smith & Wessons Very Own 1911 Pistol
News ImageOne of the oldest gun companies in America produces its own take on one of the most exemplary handgun designs in U.S. history.Smith & Wessons series of handguns based on the 1911 platform stays true to the guns roots while adding in a number of features desirable to modern firearms enthusiasts. The company produces a full line of 1911s, from traditional to contemporary, catering to collectors and duty carriers, in a full range of sizes.The 1911 pistol was invented by prolific small arms designer John Moses Browning in the early twentieth century. Browning paired the pistol with his new .45 Automatic Colt Pistol cartridge, a large, heavy subsonic cartridge that delivered upwards of 400 foot-pounds of energy on target. The pairing of a semi-automatic pistol capable of holding eight rounds with the .45 ACP manstopper round was in response to reports that U.S.-issue revolvers in .38 Long Colt often failed to stop Filipino insurgents in close quarters combat.Although the 1911 missed the Philippine Insurrection, it was well positioned to enter World War I on the side of the U.S. military. The American Expeditionary Force issued the 1911 in large numbers where they fought in the trenches of World War I. Minor changes in the design resulted in the 1911A1 designation during the 1920s. More than a million pistols were produced for U.S. and allied forces during World War II, enough that the armed services kept the 1911 in frontline service well into the 1980s.

Air strikes and explosions hit Libyan capital
News ImageSeveral air strikes and explosions shook the Libyan capital Tripoli overnight, residents said, in an escalation of a two-week offensive by eastern forces on the city held by the internationally recognised government. A Reuters reporter and several residents said they saw an aircraft circling for more than 10 minutes over the capital late on Saturday, and that it made a humming sound before opening fire on several areas. An aircraft was heard again after midnight, circling for more than ten minutes before a heavy explosion shook the ground. It was not clear whether an aircraft or unmanned drone was behind the strike, which triggered heavy anti aircraft fire. Residents had reported drone strikes in recent days, but there has been no confirmation and explosions heard in the city centre this time were louder than in previous days. Residents counted several missile strikes, one of which apparently hit a military camp of forces loyal to Tripoli in the Sabaa district in the south of the capital, scene of the heaviest fighting between the rival forces. Authorities closed Tripoli's only functioning airport, cutting air links to a city of an estimated 2.5 million residents. The airport in Misrata, a city 200 km to the east, remained open. A vehicle belonging to Libyan fighters loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA) is pictured during clashes with forces loyal to strongman Khalifa Haftar south of the capital Tripoli's suburb of Ain Zara Credit: MAHMUD TURKIA/AFP The Libyan National Army (LNA) force loyal to commander Khalifa Haftar started an offensive two weeks ago but has been unable to breach the government's southern defences. If a drone strike was confirmed this would point to more sophisticated warfare. The LNA has so far mainly used ageing Soviet-made jets from the air force of Muammar Gaddafi, toppled in 2011, lacking precision firepower and helicopters, according to residents and military sources. In the past the United Arab Emirates and Egypt have supported Haftar with air strikes during campaigns to take eastern Libya. Both countries flew air strikes on Tripoli in 2014 during a different conflict to help a Haftar-allied force, USofficials said at the time. Since 2014 the UAE and Egypt have provided the LNA with military equipment such as aircraft and helicopters, helping Haftar gain the upper hand in Libya's eight-year conflict, U.N. reports have established. The UAE even built an air base in Al Khadim in eastern Libya, one such report said in 2017. The air strikes, which were also filmed by residents in video posted online, came after a day of heavy clashes in southern districts, with shelling audible in the city centre. The violence spiked after the White House said on Friday that USPresident Donald Trump spoke by telephone with Haftar earlier in the week. The disclosure of the call and a U.S. statement that it "recognized Field Marshal Haftar's significant role in fighting terrorism and securing Libya's oil resources" has boosted the commander's supporters and enraged his opponents. Western powers and the Gulf have been divided over a push by Haftar's forces to seize Tripoli, undermining calls by the United Nations for a ceasefire. Both sides claimed progress in southern Tripoli on Saturday, but no more details were immediately available. A Reuters TV cameraman visiting the southern Khalat Furgan suburb heard heavy shelling but saw no apparent change in the frontline. On Friday, two children were killed in shelling in southern Tripoli, residents said. The fighting has killed 227 people and wounded 1,128, the World Heath organization (WHO) said before the air strikes. On Thursday, both the United States and Russia said they could not support a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire in Libya at this time. Russia objects to the British-drafted resolution blaming Haftar for the latest flare-up in violence when his LNA advanced to the outskirts of Tripoli earlier this month, diplomats said. The United States did not give a reason for its decision not to support the draft resolution, which would also call on countries with influence over the warring parties to ensure compliance and for unconditional humanitarian aid access in Libya.

Check Out These Dangerous Looking Chinese Assault Rifles (There's A Problem)
News ImageTo hear Chinese state media tell it, the soldiers of the Peoples Liberation Army will go into battle in the future wearing an array of high-tech gizmos. In their hands will be enormous weapons combining a rifle with a 20-millimeter grenade launcher akin to the old and cancelled American OICW. On top of that, they will have heads-up displays and networked positioning systems so Chinese troops can monitor each other digitally, almost like a video game.It looks impressive, and Chinese announcements of the system have circulated in the press with varying degrees of skepticism and hyperbole. A more skeptical take recently came from the military news wire Shephard Media, which pointed out that China is claiming the 20-millimeter hybrid weapon, dubbed QTS-11, can fire airbursting grenades lethal within a radius of 7.7 meters.

This pricey CBD sheet mask is a fun skincare one-off
News ImageThe internet is so full of CBD content these days that Lord Jones peppermint tincture is practically oozing from its pores. Now, the (non-psychoactive) cannabinoid is increasingly showing up in beauty products, including mascara, serums, and body soaps.Among the options is the cannabis company Beboe's new CBD line, Beboe Therapies. There's a sheet mask ($78 for a pack of five) and a serum ($148), both of which are available on the Beboe Therapies website. I gave the sheet mask a spin.Before we get started, a quick reminder on CBD: There's a ton more research to be done on its actual effects and benefits, but we do know, as Mashable culture reporter Morgan Sung reported in March, that it affects the body's CB2 receptors. This means it won't give you a "high" feeling, but it is likely to reduce inflammation.Image: Beboe TherapiesSEE ALSO: Aloe Bud is a self-care app for self-care app skepticsThat anti-inflammatory component is the key here: The mask is intended to, according to the company's website, "calm the skin while supporting skin cell renewal, moisturization, brightening, and toning." As someone who struggles with intermittent acne and redness, this seemed like a great proposition. But does it do its job? What's in there?Aside from 50mg of CBD, each mask is formulated with vitamin C, ceramides, plant-extracted AHAs, niacinamide, vitamin E, aloe, glycerin, and algae extract. It does not contain parabens, silicone, preservatives, phthalate, gluten, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, mineral oil, or palm oil -- though it does contain a small amount of lavender and copaiba oils for fragrance. The mask does smell amazing: fresh, soothing, and botanical.The mask itself is made of cloth, which is pleasantly sturdy and easy to apply. Blessedly, it also doesn't instantly slide off like a lot of sheet masks (although this would become a problem down the line). This sets it apart from my favorite face mask ever -- the otherwise perfect Benton Snail Bee mask that I have to secure with my glasses.The instructions did ask that I remove a "liner" before applying the mask, but neither I nor my roommate could find any such liner to peel away. Does "liner" just mean the packaging? No idea, but don't spend your precious time looking for this ghost liner, as it does not exist. The processBeboe recommends wearing the mask for 30 minutes, then massaging excess product into your skin. They suggest using these 30 minutes to "call your mother," which is a nice idea. Unfortunately, my mom was already asleep, so I spent my 30 minutes half-watching Schitt's Creek and using my roommate's Portrait Mode to take mirror selfies. Similar concept!Yes, hi, I'm here for the murder?Image: Chloe Bryan/MashableThe mask stayed on very well for about 15 minutes, then curled away at the sides once its contents had started to transfer from the fabric to the desiccated post-winter sponge that was my face. I had a difficult time keeping it on for the last five minutes. Perhaps next time, I will simply accept my fate and take it off early. The resultsAfter 30 minutes, I removed the mask, patted in the excess serum, then dabbed any remaining product from the mask (there was not very much) onto the backs of my hands (hot tip). Right away, I noticed that my skin appeared slightly less red. It was also extremely dewy, but that was probably because it was covered in fresh, wet lotion. After everything absorbed fully, though, my face felt truly smooth -- like, featuring Rob Thomas smooth. It stayed that way until I went to bed two hours later.The next day, my skin's appearance was pretty much back to normal. It still felt fairly smooth, though.Also worth noting: I have very sensitive skin, but the mask didn't break me out. Everyone's skin has different triggers for irritation, obviously, but I generally stick to a simple four-step routine (cleanser, essence, moisturizer, sunscreen) and this mask didn't instigate acne disaster. Is it worth it, though?So the mask was good. I enjoyed the mask. But that doesn't change the fact that, at $78 for a five-pack, each mask costs about $15.60. That's a steep price to pay for a single sheet mask, especially when there are some very soothing options out there -- full of the great non-CBD ingredients in these masks -- for much less.If there's a CBD enthusiast in your life, these would make a phenomenal and just-luxurious-enough gift. If that CBD enthusiast is you, even better. Beboe recommends using the mask 1-2 times per week, but that's ... a real investment. You're probably better off treating it like a treat.And if it makes you feel a little relaxed? All the better. WATCH: Kim Kardashian wants a 'zen-like CBD-themed' baby shower
