"Baltimore residents woke up to a city that looked like a war zone Tuesday after a night of riots, fires and looting.

Gangs of mostly young men roamed the streets, setting fires and seriously injuring police officers. The violence erupted hours after the funeral for Freddie Gray, who died as a result of a broken spine while in police custody.

At least 27 people have been arrested, and 15 police officers were injured, six seriously.

Schools were closed."

"A Dutch expert helping to identify victims from last year’s MH17 airliner crash in Ukraine has been fired after showing photographs of the dead at a public lecture, the government said Thursday.

“The collaboration with George Maat has been terminated,” the justice minister, Ard van der Steur, told lawmakers in parliament."

"Maat is also accused of making comments outside his realm of expertise, notably about the causes of the crash, which were “incorrect”, Aling said."

"Pakistan said Friday the botched US drone attack that killed two foreign hostages showed the risks of the controversial tactic, as details came to light apparently pinpointing the fatal strike.

President Barack Obama admitted on Thursday that one American and one Italian hostage were accidentally killed in a counter-terrorism operation in January targeting a suspected Al-Qaeda hideout.

Obama said US consultant Warren Weinstein and Italian aid worker Giovanni Lo Porto were killed along with Ahmed Faruq, an American described as a leader of Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).

Islamabad said it was shocked and saddened by the incident and offered sympathy to the families.

"The death of Mr Weinstein and Mr Lo Porto in a drone strike demonstrates the risk and unintended consequences of the use of this technology that Pakistan has been highlighting for a long time," the foreign ministry said in a statement."

"Former CIA director and retired four-star Gen. David Petraeus was sentenced to two years probation and a $100,000 fine after delivering a guilty plea for sharing government secrets with his mistress.

Petraeus was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Charlotte, N.C. He pleaded guilty to one count of mishandling classified information.

Prosecutors recommended a $40,000 fine, but U.S. Magistrate Judge David Keesler upped it to $100,000 because of the seriousness of the charges."

"The EU plans to allow only 5,000 refugees for resettlement by asylum seekers in response to the Mediterranean refugee crisis, reports the Guardian. Last year alone 150,000 people arrived in Southern Europe after surviving a trip across the sea.

The measure is part of a package that EU leaders are discussing in Brussels on Thursday. The British newspaper cites a confidential draft conclusion of the summit that outlines the union’s response to the inflow of illegal immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East.

The draft suggests “setting up a first voluntary pilot project on resettlement, offering at least 5,000 places to persons qualifying for protection.” That would be one 30th of the number of immigrants who reached Europe in 2014."

"At least 1,000 protesters in Baltimore took to the streets late Tuesday, to demonstrate against the death of Freddie Gray, whose neck was broken while in police custody.

Crowds chanted "No justice! No Peace!" as they walked down the streets of the city. "We won't stop," one protester said. "We have the power and, of course, today shows we have the numbers."

Gray, 25, died Sunday, one week after he was arrested."

"U.S. regulators may start testing food products for residues of the world's most widely used herbicide, the Environmental Protection Agency told Reuters on Friday, as public concern rises over possible links to disease.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, has come under intense scrutiny since a research unit of the World Health Organization reported last month it was classifying glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic to humans."

The herbicide is considered safe by the EPA, as well as many foreign regulatory agencies, including in the European Union.

Still, a number of companies, consumer groups and advocacy organizations have been sampling foods, as well as human urine and breast milk, to try to determine the pervasiveness of glyphosate residues.

Glyphosate is used on corn, soybeans, sugar beets and other crops genetically altered to withstand it. It is also used by farmers growing wheat and other crops. Its use has surged with the advancement of genetically engineered crops.

The U.S. government, which annually tests thousands of foods for pesticide residues, does not test for glyphosate, in part because it has been considered safe."

"Internet freedom advocates are nervous that a vast new trade partnership being pushed by the Obama administration and placed on the path to fast-track approval by Congress Thursday will permit multinational corporations to crack down on freedom of speech and the right to privacy online. The complaints are aimed at a crucial part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a pact that could help shape President Obama’s legacy on economic issues.

While the terms of the proposed deal have only been made public in a series of leaks, the U.S. has been pushing for an agreement with 11 other countries that make up 40 percent of U.S. imports and exports. Leaked versions of the pact make it clear the U.S. is trying to sway other countries to implement American intellectual property law that copyright holders already use to remove legally questionable content from the Internet in the U.S."

""Modern communications technologies, including IP connectivity, are increasingly used in aircraft systems, creating the possibility that unauthorized individuals might access and compromise aircraft avionics systems," the report states, quoting cyber security and aviation experts.

Modern aircraft systems use IP networking to communicate within the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), and if one system connected to an IP network is compromised, damage can potentially spread to other systems on the network.

The report doesn’t provide any specifics on how the hacking and taking over could be done, but states that the person would have to get through the firewalls that divide the aircraft’s flight control and entertainment systems.

“Firewalls are software components, they could be hacked like any other software and circumvented,” the report cited experts as saying."
