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. But we know Brussels has become a fertile recruiting ground
for jihadi fighters. The Paris attacks were plotted here and fugitive Salah Abdeslam hid out here. Click here to follow the latest updates
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
. Looks like the government doesn't need you either
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.
Again with the hands:
Yep, The Donald brought them up once again saying he's got the steadiest ones. "Look at those hands. 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.
