Student films gigantic lightning bolt within metres of him in Mutley, UK

This is the terrifying moment a gigantic bolt of lightning came within metres of striking a student and his friends who had gone outside to film a storm on Snapchat.

Footage shows lightning which sounds like a gunshot hitting a house, missing Alex Sawyer, 23, and his friends by 20 metres.

The University of Plymouth student captured the moment in Mutley, Devon, on his mobile phone and described it like 'fire raining down from the sky'.

After emergency services had left the scene Alex went back inside to continue writing his dissertation.

He said: 'My friends and I were all watching the lightning and I thought, "This will make a great Snapchat".

Duterte offers to hire Muslim separatists to fight ISIS

Philippines leader Rodrigo Duterte has offered Muslim separatists and Maoists to join the fight against Islamic State-linked militants attempting to gain a foothold in the country. Duterte promised to treat them as soldiers and offered them the "same privileges."

The leader made the announcement on Saturday while visiting an army base on Jolo Island in Sulu province. Philippine troops are currently battling Abu Sayyaf jihadist militants, who have pledged allegiance to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) on the island.

"I will hire you as soldiers - same pay, same privileges, and I will build houses for you in some areas," Duterte said, addressing separatist groups, according to a video released on Sunday, Reuters and local media report.

Putin signs legislation introducing tougher surveillance of convicted terrorists

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed into law additional controls for people who have served sentences for especially serious crimes, including terrorism.

The bill, which aims to curb repeat offenses, was passed by both houses of the Russian parliament earlier this month.

The new law introduces administrative surveillance for people who have committed especially grave crimes and have already served their sentences. The controls include up to four personal visits a month to police stations near the person's official place of residence. The list of crimes mentioned in the law includes terrorism, repeated serious crimes, murders, sex crimes against minors as well as hate crimes targeting certain ethnic or religious groups.

Kushner-Kislyak Meeting: Was Trump Tower Bugged?

The claim US intelligence learnt of the meeting between Jared Kushner and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak by intercepting Russian communications looks implausible, leading to the possibility US intelligence obtained details of the meeting because - despite denials - Trump Tower was bugged.

Since the Washington Post first disclosed that Donald Trump's son in law Jared Kushner discussed in December with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak the idea of setting up a back channel, several US officials have sprung to Kushner's defence.

US attempting to put Iraq & Syria into an 'economic stranglehold'

The U.S. is casting its net over the desert between Iraq and Syria, Saudi Arabia and Jordan to install military bases and power-structures that will guarantee major influence in the area for the foreseeable future. A part of that plan is to develop Sunni proxy forces that will keep the government forces of Damascus and Baghdad out of the area. Another part is to privatize important infrastructure to keep it under direct U.S. control.

To privatize the Iraqi Highway 1 between Baghdad and the Jordanian capital Amman, is a major point in these plans. According to the NYT:



As part of an American effort to promote economic development in Iraq and secure influence in the country after the fight against the Islamic State subsides, the American government has helped broker a deal between Iraq and Olive Group, a private security company, to establish and secure the country's first toll highway.

According to Melkumova, the company's lawyers are already on their way to both Yandex offices. She stressed that the company is open to cooperation with law enforcement.

"We are ready to provide [Ukrainian] authorities with the necessary information," the statement added.

'The voice of a woman singing is a violation of religious law': Chief rabbi tells Israeli soldiers to bury their faces in Torah

Israeli soldiers should remove their glasses to blur the view and bury their faces in a holy book when compelled to listen to female singer, according to the country's Sephardi chief rabbi. He went on to compare immodestly-dressed women to "animals."

Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef gave the guidance while delivering a sermon on Saturday night, according to Hebrew website Kikar HaShabbat.

Yosef, like many Orthodox Jewish men, believes that listening to the voice of a woman singing is a violation of religious law. In fact, the mandatory attendance of Orthodox soldiers at ceremonies where women perform has been a source of controversy in recent years.

"I was at an event where a woman was singing, and what did I do? I took a little book in my hand and removed my glasses. I put the book in front of my face, conspicuously, so others around me, the prime minister and the president, could all see that I wasn't listening, that my head was in a book held close to my eyes," Yosef said.

Gonna need a bigger boat: 9ft great white shark leaps into fisherman's boat (PHOTOS)

A 73-year-old Australian fisherman claimed his most spectacular catch when a ferocious great white shark leapt right out of the ocean - and into his boat.

Terry Selwood was fishing offshore on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia, on Saturday when the shark, measuring 2.7 meters (9ft) in length and weighing about 200kg (440lb), launched itself into his small boat.

And, terrifyingly, with the boat measuring just 1.4 meters across and 4.5 meters in length, there wasn't enough room for both of them.

Israeli TV Report: Trump Lashed out at Abbas During Bethlehem Meeting Over Palestinian Incitement

JNS.org – President Donald Trump berated Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas during their meeting last week in Bethlehem over Abbas’ personal responsibility for terrorism incitement, Israel’s Channel 2 reported on Sunday.
An unnamed American source reportedly told the Israeli broadcaster Trump was furious with Abbas and yelled at the PA leader for his direct involvement with incitement against Jews.
“You tricked me in D.C.! You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement,” Trump reportedly screamed at Abbas, who was taken aback by the US president’s forceful comments. The two leaders had previously met at the White House on May 3.
The report further stated that several minutes of silence followed the outburst, before the meeting was able to resume. Although the PA denied Channel 2’s account, a reporter for the network, Udi Segal, posted segments of the purported spat on Twitter.
In his public remarks with Abbas last week, Trump had said peace “can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded,” but conveyed assurances that both Israel and the Palestinians were ready for peace.
Palestinian Media Watch reported in early May that PA Prisoners’ Affairs Committee leader Issa Qaraqe had announced Abbas’s “absolute refusal of the Israeli demands” to halt PA payments to terrorists and their families.
