WASHINGTON, [DC]--A North Carolina man was arrested Sunday after he walked into a popular pizza restaurant in Northwest Washington carrying an assault rifle and fired one or more shots, D.C. police said.

WASHINGTON, [MO]--The mother of two boys who were abducted and fatally shot by their father on Saturday described her husband as “a very attentive, loving, over-the-top caring individual for these boys.” “And that’s the part I don’t understand,” Elisa Sartorius-Cadenbach, 40, said in an interview on Sunday. While police were looking to arrest Christopher Cadenbach on Saturday for domestic abuse against her, he took their two boys, Ethan, 5, and Owen, 4, from his mother’s house in Lemay.

COFFEE COUNTY, [GA]--Two south Georgia men are accused of plotting domestic terrorism based on bizarre conspiracy theories. Coffee County Sheriff's investigators arrested Michael Mancil, 30, and James Dryden Jr., 22, on Thursday.  Officials said the suspects planned to penetrate a research facility in Alaska that has been the subject of several conspiracy theories.  Investigators said the massive amount of arsenal seized looked like something out of a movie, one where a small army was headed to war. But Coffee County investigators said the two Douglas men collected dozens of weapons as part of a plan to attack the High Frequency Active Aural Research Facility or HAARP. The form

UNITED STATES, [US]--Right now, two-thirds of Americans are suffering from "Fear-bola," according to a new Washington Post poll. It's a hyper-contagious disease that affects the brain, making sufferers fear a widespread Ebola outbreak in the United States.

OAKLAND, [CA]—Harold Camping, 92, the California preacher who used his evangelical radio ministry and thousands of billboards to broadcast the end of the world and then gave up public prophecy when his date-specific doomsdays did not come to pass, died at his Oakland-area home Sunday. He had been hospitalized after falling. His most widely spread prediction was the Rapture would happen on May 21, 2011. His independent Christian media empire spent millions of dollars - some of it from donations made by followers who quit their jobs and sold all their possessions to spread the word on more than 5,000 billboards and 20 RVs plastered with the Judgment Day message. When the Judgment Day he

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, [CN]—An advertising campaign in Canada raises questions about the U.S. government's official account of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.

The office tower, 7 World Trade Center, may have been destroyed in a controlled demolition, members of the organization purport, rather than in a fire.

UNITED STATES, [US]—Even now, Alex Jones can't relax. Two weeks after he enraged the entire country by naming the U.S. government as Suspect No. 1 in the bloody slaughter at the Boston Marathon, the radio host and avatar of modern American paranoia is on vacation with his family in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He goes to museums with his kids, takes in the Romanesque baths, laments the decay of the grand old hotels that drew high rollers, hikes up hillsides steamy with the mist from natural hot springs that bubble right out of the rocks. But everywhere he looks there are fresh assaults on the American way of life, or liberty itself, and the raging radio voice that transforms him from a gent

WASHINGTON, [DC]—People who fire guns at drones are endangering the public and property and could be prosecuted or fined, the Federal Aviation Administration warned Friday. The FAA released a statement in response to questions about an ordinance under consideration in the tiny farming community of Deer Trail, Colorado, that would encourage hunters to shoot down drones.
