  • Has the mystery of DB Cooper been solved?

    It is 44 years since a man known only as DB Cooper leapt out of a hijacked 727 airliner with a parachute on his back and a bag stuffed with $200,000 (£132,000) of bank notes. No trace of him has ever been found. But now a new theory suggests he may have been a grocery store manager who disappeared before the hijacking. Lisa Lepsy said she remembered watching news coverage of the audacious airborne heist on television two years after her father, Dick, failed to return from work. "We were all sitting on the couch watching Walter Cronkite," she told WZZM, a local TV station, referring to the news anchor.

  • Nato backs Turkey over downing of Russian fighter jet

    Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg offered support for Ankara on Tuesday (24 November) after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane near the Syrian border. He rejected any suggestion that the incident happened outside of Turkey's borders. Asked if there was any possibility that the plane was actually shot down inside Syria, Stoltenberg said: "The allied assessments that we have are consistent with the information we have from Turkey," he told a news conference in Brussels. "I have previously expressed my concerns about the implications of the military actions of the Russian Federation close to Nato borders. This highlights the importance of having and respecting arrangements to avoid such incidents in the future. As we have repeatedly made clear we stand in solidarity with Turkey and support the territorial integrity of our Nato ally." "What we are calling for now is calm and de-escalation. This is a serious situation, this is a situation which calls on [prudence] and that we all contribute to de-escalating the situation," he added. Russia has accused Turkey of shooting down one of its fighter jets nearly a mile inside Syria and Russian President Vladimir Putin and warned of "serious consequences."
