5 things to know for your New Day -- Thursday, February 5
It's Thursday and here are the 5 things to know for your New Day
Under duress: Rescue workers are trying to find 11 people still missing from the TransAsia Airways plane that crashed into a river in Taiwan, amid concerns that some of them might have been swept away by currents. Fifty-eight people were aboard the flight when it veered out of control yesterday. Fifteen survived the crash, but 11 are still missing. The search continues.
Terror miscalculation: Passions are red-hot in Jordan where the killing of a Jordanian fighter pilot by ISIS has inflamed the nation. Jordan has already executed two al Qaeda prisoners in retaliation for his death, but the pilot's father wants more done. "I demand that this criminal organization (ISIS) ... should be annihilated." An ISIS video shows Lt. Moath al-Kasasbeh being burned alive in a cage. Analysts say the horrific images have hurt ISIS' cause even among radical Islamists who may have supported them before.
Possible terror attack clue: There's a new ISIS video -- this time in French. It's standard ISIS stuff, but French officials are intrigued by a woman who appears in it. They wonder if it might be Hayat Boumeddiene, the wife of Amedy Coulibaly. He's the man who killed four hostages last month at a kosher grocery in Paris. She fled France and is believed to be in Syria.
Millions exposed: It's hard to believe that any information is safe anymore. Hackers have stolen information on tens of millions of Anthem Inc. customers. It's a massive data breach that ranks among the largest in corporate history. The information stolen from the insurance giant includes names, birthdays, medical IDs, social security numbers, street addresses, e-mail addresses and employment information, including income data. The good news? Anthem said there's no evidence that credit card or medical information was compromised. Anthem joins Target and Neiman Marcus on a growing list of companies that have been hacked.
Changing the law: The growing number of measles cases nationwide could prompt some changes in California, where most of the current cases got their start. Two state senators are proposing legislation that would eliminate the "personal beliefs" exemption for parents who don't want their children to be vaccinated. If passed, the state would still allow exemptions for medical reasons. There are now 99 measles cases in California.
