|Sunday, March 18, 2018 - Two men injured in fourth explosion in Austin, Texas, this month|
An explosion in Austin on Sunday wounded two men, thought to be in their 20s, authorities said, as Federal Bureau of Investigation agents rushed to the scene in the Texas capital, where earlier this month three parcel bombs killed two people. Police told a press conference that the wounded men were taken to a hospital, but their injuries were not life threatening. "We have a scene where it is obvious an explosion has taken place," said Brian Manley, Austin police chief. "We just simply do not know a lot at this point." He also told people to stay in their homes and avoid touching any suspicious packages, but did not say whether there was any link between the latest blast and the earlier parcel bombs. The FBI said on Twitter that its agents were at the scene of Sunday's explosion in a residential neighbourhood on the west side of the city, several miles from where the east side neighborhoods where the earlier blasts occurred. Initial Statement from Chief Manley regarding explosion https://t.co/CCydXhmQ8e— Austin Police Dept (@Austin_Police) March 19, 2018 Agents from the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) were also attending the scene, the FBI said. "Residents in immediate area ... wait in your homes and follow instructions of officers," Austin police said on their Twitter feed. Investigators are still looking for the culprits behind the three parcel bombs that exploded in three separate east side neighbourhoods of the city, killing two African-American males and leaving a 75-year-old Hispanic woman fighting for her life. More than 500 federal agents have joined Austin police in the murder investigation. APD responding to Bomb Hotshot call in the 4800 block of Dawn Song Dr. Two male patients transported with unknown injuries. Please avoid the area. Media staging area is 4635 SW Pkwy, corner of SW Pkwy and Boston Ln. APD PIO— Austin Police Dept (@Austin_Police) March 19, 2018 Earlier on Sunday, Austin police said whoever was responsible for the bombs was trying to send a message and should contact authorities to explain any motive. "We are not going to understand that (message) until the suspect or suspects reach out to us to talk to us about what that message was," Mr Manley said. He added that police were also investigating the bombings as possible hate crimes. The first bombing on March 2 killed Anthony Stephan House, a 39-year-old black man. It ripped a hole in a home entrance wall and damaged the front door. A bomb last Monday morning killed Draylen Mason, a 17-year-old African American teenager and promising musician. It also injured his mother. A few hours later, a third bombing injured the 75-year-old Hispanic woman, who has not been named. Police have received more than 735 calls about suspicious packages since the three parcel bomb attacks, but authorities had not found any that posed a security risk, Mr Manley said. A reward of $115,000 has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible.

|Monday, March 19, 2018 - Vehicle used to pick up Yulia Skripal from airport seized for forensic tests|
The vehicle used to pick up Yulia Skripal from Heathrow when she arrived in the UK from Moscow has been seized by the military for forensic testing. The development suggests that detectives believe the Novichok nerve agent used to poison both the 33-year-old and her father, Russian spy Sergei Skripal, a fortnight ago may have been unwittingly carried over by her from Russia the previous day. Barely 24 hours later, the pair were found on a bench in the centre of Salisbury in a catatonic state. Miss Skripal was picked up from the airport on Saturday March 3 by Ross Cassidy, one of Col Skripal's closest friends, who drove her back to her father's house in Salisbury. Intelligence officers have suggested that the toxin may have been hidden in her luggage, either impregnated in an item of clothing or cosmetics or else in a gift, meaning Miss Skripal was deliberately targeted to get at her father. Mr Cassidy confirmed when contacted by The Telegraph that his pick-up truck had been seized at the concrete plant in Amesbury where he works. Ross Cassidy, a close friend of Sergei Skripal, who is understood to have picked Yulia Skripal up from Heathrow Meanwhile, police investigating the murder of Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov said they had found no evidence of forced entry into his home. The 68-year-old was found apparently strangled at his terraced house in Clarence Avenue, New Malden on March 12, prompting fears that a new Moscow-sponsored attack had been carried out on UK soil. The former Aeroflot deputy director, a fierce critic of Vladimir Putin, was granted asylum in the UK after fleeing Russia in 2006. His death was initially treated as unexplained but four days later, following a post-mortem examination, Scotland Yard launched a murder inquiry. Mr Glushkov, who was close friends with Putin critic Boris Berezovsky, was wanted over fraud allegations in his native Russia. He was also outspoken after Mr Berezovsky died in 2013, refusing to accept that his friend had taken his own life. Sergei Skripal with his daughter Yulia Credit: Social media Counter-terrorism police are leading the investigation into Mr Glushkov's death but have stressed that there is no evidence to link it with the attempted murder of Col Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury. On Monday officers were carrying out house-to-house inquiries near his Clarence Avenue home and appealing for witnesses to come forward. Metropolitan Police Commander Clarke Jarrett said: "I would urge anybody who may have information to get in touch if they have not already done so. We will have officers in Mr Glushkov's local neighbourhood today so please come and speak to us if you think you may have seen or heard anything suspicious last Sunday or Monday. "The investigation is progressing; we have taken a number of statements and have over 400 exhibits which are being processed. We have found no sign of forced entry thus far, but the forensic examination at Mr Glushkov's home continues and we expect to be there for some time. "I must stress that there is nothing we have found in our investigation so far to suggest any link to the attempted murders in Salisbury and I would like to reassure the public in New Malden that there are no wider public health concerns in relation to this investigation." Officers at the cordon near the tent covering the bench where Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found poisoned Credit: REUTERS/Peter Nicholls The bodies of Russian dissidents who have died in the UK are likely to be exhumed in the wake of Boris Johnson's disclosure that the Kremlin has spent a decade developing nerve agents for assassination purposes. The remains of at least two Russians who died suddenly and mysteriously are expected to be re-examined. Neither was tested for nerve agent poisoning after their deaths. Yesterday, the Foreign Secretary accused Putin's regime of breaking international law in developing Novichok for use by hit squads. Today, inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will visit the defence laboratory at Porton Down to collect nerve agent samples used in the attack for independent testing. The tests are expected to last at least two weeks. Mr Johnson said the Government had proof that Novichok was being stockpiled by Russia. The Skripals remain in a critical and life threatening condition.

There's nothing more heartbreaking than a missing pet—but there's also nothing more heartwarming than a reunion. Get the tissues ready, this one is a doozy. Twitter user @ngvhi hopped online to share the most beautiful story about how she was reunited, five years later, with her sweet cat and first pet. Meet Panther. SEE ALSO: We're calling 'fake news' on the report that 'Black Panther' caused a surge in black cat adoptions hi I can’t believe this is real because I am still in shock but my first pet ever my cat panther just came home today after going missing FIVE YEARS AGO. FIVE. YEARS. AGO. — nguhi (@ngvhi) March 16, 2018 "Sometime after Panther went missing he apparently turned up in a shelter in the next city 15 mi away," she wrote. "Days before he was going to be euthanized he was adopted! And lived with a women [sic] for a little while in yet another city." Apparently the woman who adapted Panther kept him until she couldn't any longer, and ultimately gave him to her parents—who just so happened to be @ngvhi's neighbor. So, for over a year, Panther (whose name changed to Charlie) was literally living his best indoor cat life right next door. "These happen to be the neighbors that bought a Siberian husky that quickly turned out to be too much to handle. I started taking care of him until they asked if I wanted to fully adopt him," she continued. Yep that's right, this story also involves a
doggo. The neighbors took in her cat, unknowingly, and she ended up with their dog. of course I said yes which is why last year I adopted my beautiful baby boy trotsky. ALL WHILE UNBEKNOWNST TO ME MY LONG LOST CAT PANTHER WAS LIVING INDOORS. I took their dog and they took my cat. pic.twitter.com/LkkAYKb5Hi — nguhi (@ngvhi) March 17, 2018 One day, her neighbors called to ask if they had seen a missing Charlie—aka Panther. When Charlie/Panther did turn up, Trotsky the husky (which, side note, is a perfect name) didn't freak out. "HE ALREADY KNEW HIM. THEY’D LIVED TOGETHER BEFORE," @ngvhi wrote. "Our neighbors were as flabbergasted as us and insisted we keep him because he really was ours. we (I was overruled) decided to give him back since he was comfortable there and we already have a dog and cat," she tweeted. "It was heartbreaking but I can’t even be sad bc today was truly surreal. They’ve given me permission to visit my beautiful boy whenever I’d like. How is it possible that they gave me this dog I adore and have fostered my first best friend." you know how you lose a person or pet and you wish you had one more day with them just to let them know how much you love them and how much they mean to you? I just had that day with Panther. I never would have guessed that 5 years later I’d get to kiss his little head again ❤️ pic.twitter.com/KQyEQ67QFy — nguhi (@ngvhi) March 17, 2018 "You know how you lose a person or pet and you wish you had one more day with them just to let them know how much you love them and how much they mean to you?," she wrote.
