At least 15 dead, dozens injured in knife attack outside Tokyo
[FOXNEWS] At least 15 people were killed, and up to 45 injured when a knife-wielding man went on a rampage early Tuesday at a facility for the disabled in the Japanese city of Sagmihara, broadcaster NHK reported.

Police told NNK World they received a call from an employee of the facility, located west of Tokyo, just after 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

Police told NHK they incarcerated
Yez got nuttin' on me, coppers! Nuttin'!
a man in his 20s when he turned himself in at a cop shoppe shortly after 3 a.m. local time.

Police said the man told them that he was a former employee of the center.

No motive for the attack was immediately known.
The Daily Mail adds:
Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reported that the suspect told police: 'I want to get rid of the disabled from this world.'

FBI confirms investigating Hack into DNC computer network
On Monday, the FBI confirmed it was investigating a hack into the DNC, the first acknowledgment from the agency that they are probing the incident, which US officials suspect came from a Russian cyber attack.

"The FBI is investigating a cyber intrusion involving the DNC and are working to determine the nature and scope of the matter," the agency said in a statement. "A compromise of this nature is something we take very seriously, and the FBI will continue to investigate and hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace."

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday about that "changes to the Republican platform to make it more pro-Russian," which could provide some of the motive behind the hacks.

Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., denied that his father's campaign had anything to do with encouraging Russians to hack the DNC.

James Trainor, assistant director for FBI's cyber division, told CNN in a recent interview that the bureau has been working with political organizations and think tanks to put more resources into the security of their computer networks. He wouldn't discuss the DNC or the role of Russia, but spoke generally about the increased number of such intrusions.

"There's been aggressive targeting of that sector, the various campaigns, think tanks in the Washington, DC area," Trainor said.
The "targeting of any candidate or any party (that) has political intelligence," Trainor said. "There's value in information there
if you're a nation state actor, so (it) shouldn't be surprising."

The FBI and other US agencies involved haven't yet officially attributed the DNC attack to Russian government hackers. But evidence gathered by the FBI so far points to groups that are known to US counter-intelligence for carrying out intrusions for the Russian government, the officials briefed on the probe say. The release of the emails over the weekend, however, raised new questions among government and private sector security officials.

Mob lynches ‘robber’ who shot dead man
Actually, the guy was alive when he shot him, but not after. It's one of those South Asian idioms
[DAWN] KARACHI: An angry mob lynched a suspected robber after he rubbed out a man when he put up resistance to an attempt to rob him in New Bloody Karachi
...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It is among the largest cities in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous...
early on Sunday morning, Bilal Colony police said.

They added that two suspected robbers intercepted a motorcyclist identified as Javed Siddique near Dua Chowk in Sector 5-D, New Karachi, and tried to rob him. As he put up resistance, the robbers opened fire on him, killing him on the spot.

The incident enraged area residents, who caught hold of one of the suspects and subjected him to severe beating.

Police said that they rescued the seriously maimed suspect from the angry crowd and shifted him to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, but he died from the wounds.

Police said the victim, Javed, was on his way to attend a marriage ceremony of a friend in the area when he was bumped off by the robbers. The victim’s maternal uncle took away the body for burial saying the family would lodge an FIR later.

A police official at the Bilal Colony cop shoppe said that so far no case had been registered against the mob for lynching the suspected robber.

Qandeel's cousin turns himself in for police investigation
[DAWN] A cousin of slain social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch turned himself in to police on Monday for investigation.

A senior police officer speaking on condition of anonymity
... for fear of being murdered...
told Dawn.com that Haq Nawaz turned himself in to police at the Kala cop shoppe in Dera Ghazi Khan as authorities suspected his involvement in the murder.

Qandeel's brother, Waseem, in his confession claimed to have acted alone and said he had drugged and strangled his sister. Police were, however, looking to investigate Haq Nawaz and his possible involvement in the murder, the police officer said.

Police also made Waseem take a polygraph and DNA tests at a forensic lab in Lahore on Friday.

Qandeel Baloch was strangled to death in her house in Multan's Karimabad area earlier this month. Her father claimed she was killed by her younger brother, Waseem, for honour.

NATO Not Ready As Russian Sub Threat Rises: CSIS
"Two things have happened," naval historian Norman Polmar told me. "One, their submarines are quieter, and, two, we have dismantled a large portion of our ASW capabilities."
