5 things to know for your new day -- Tuesday, November 24
Vested interest: Who ditched a possible suicide vest in a garbage can near Paris? Many wonder if it belonged to Salah Abdeslam, a key suspect in the November 13 terror attacks in Paris. Or maybe it belonged to someone we don't even know about. But it has the same explosives found in the suicide belts used by the Paris attackers. And Abdeslam is still nowhere to be found.
Not in my backyard: A Russian warplane was shot down near the Turkish-Syrian border Tuesday, Russian officials said. Turkey said it "responded" to a jet that violated its airspace and ignored warnings to leave. Russian officials denied that and said the pilots managed to eject -- but their fates are unknown.
You've been warned: The U.S. State Department has issued a travel alert for Americans going ... well, pretty much anywhere around the world. It says a bunch of terrorists -- namely, ISIS, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram -- "continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions." That doesn't mean Americans should put away their passports -- but they should stay vigilant and avoid large crowds.
On the loose: Police are looking for three guys who opened fire near a police station where demonstrators were protesting the death of Jamar Clark. Five people were shot, but they're all expected to survive. Clark, a 24-year-old black man, was shot by police on November 15 as they tried to arrest him.
Tick, tock: Remember Ahmed Mohamed, the Texas teen who brought a homemade clock to school -- only to get arrested because the grown-ups thought he made a bomb? Well, an attorney said his family wants an apology from the city and police -- oh, and also $15 million. The clock is ticking: Officials have been told they have 60 days to cough it up before the family sues.

... Killer Mike, that is. The rapper took the presidential candidate out to lunch and posed with him before introducing Sanders at a campaign rally in Atlanta. Apparently Killer Mike is feeling the Bern.
Here's what's coming up later:
The city of Chicago has been fighting the release of a video reportedly showing a white police officer shooting a black teenager 16 times. But after a judge's ruling, that video could be released today. A Chicago Tribune columnist says the video "could tear Chicago apart."
