  • Eight-year-old boy killed in his sleep after grenade thrown into flat

    An eight-year-old boy has been killed after a grenade was thrown into a flat where he was sleeping. The victim, believed to be from Birmingham, had been visiting relatives with his mother, brother and sister in the Swedish suburb Biskopsgården, near Gothenburg, the Birmingham Mail reports. Police said an unidentified attacker threw the hand grenade through a window as part of a suspected underworld feud. At least five children and several adults are believed to have been in the residence at the time of the attack. Gothenburg police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg, told local media that the boy's death is being investigated as murder. "Someone was standing outside the apartment and threw a hand grenade through the window, into the living room," he told Thelocal.se. "The boy was not part of the family registered at the address. This is abhorrent. "From the outside it is impossible to know who is in the apartment. That it affects an eight-year-old completely innocent boy, is despicable." ITV News has contacted the Foreign Office for a statement.

  • Iran vessels make 'high speed intercept' of U.S. ship -U.S. official

    By Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Four of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) vessels "harassed" a U.S. warship on Tuesday near the Strait of Hormuz, a U.S. defence official said, amid Washington's concerns about Iran's posture in the Gulf and in the Syrian civil war.

The vessels harassed the destroyer by "conducting a high speed intercept and closing within a short distance of Nitze, despite repeated warnings," the official said.
