BRUSSELS ATTACKS

    Planes and trains: Explosions tore through the Brussels airport and one of the city's subway stations today. The number of dead and injured keep rising. Airport operations are suspended; the transit system's been shut down and people are being told to stay home. The blasts happened just a few hours ago. So, a lot of things are still unclear.

    PARIS ATTACKS

    The house is infested: It seemed like good news when cops nabbed Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam last week. But it's like finding a nest of cockroaches you didn't know you had. Officials are now warning of the possibility of fresh attacks by a new wave of ISIS terrorists. The latest suspect investigators are trying to catch: Najim Laachraoui. But he's just one. Cops are nowhere closer to quashing them all before they multiply.

    FEDS VS. APPLE

    You know what? Nevermind: You know how the feds had been dogging Apple to dream up a backdoor to get into the San Bernardino gunman's iPhone? Well, tell Siri to scratch that courtroom showdown from the Calendar. The feds now say they've found this "outside party" to unlock Syed Farook's phone.

    CUBA

    Q & (a few) A: Cuban leader Raul Castro -- clearly not used to dealing with reporters -- was confused and annoyed yesterday as he took questions during President Obama's visit to Havana. Asked why his government was jailing dissidents, he said he'd release them "immediately." When pressed again, he ended the session, saying "enough." Obama seemed to relish putting Castro on the spot, winking at reporters. But he wasn't entirely forthcoming either. He said the U.S. sanctions against Cuba will end -- but couldn't say when.

Far steadier than hers," he said, referring to Hillz who accused him of being a flip-flopper on foreign policy. You know, like when Trump said yesterday that America should "rethink" its involvement in NATO and then said the U.S. should "decrease" it? The five remaining candidates appeared on CNN last night talking about foreign policy and their futures, ahead of Western Tuesday.
