Belfast Telegraph | Submitted by: Vomit
"Police in northern Italy say they have smashed a vicious gang of satanists, following the arrest this week of three men accused of ordering the murder of at least five young people in the Milan area since 1998. Officers identified the trio as Paolo 'Ozzy' Leoni, 27, the alleged charismatic leader of the group, Eros Monterosso, 27, and Marco Zampollo, 26, taking to eight the total number of alleged sect members arrested in the case that has shocked the Roman Catholic region of Lombardy... The three were arrested on Tuesday night for allegedly ordering the ritual murders of Chiara Marino, 19, and Fabio Tollis, 18, in January 1998... another sect member, Nicola Sapone, 26, supervised their burial, then danced on their graves shouting 'zombies, now you are only zombies,' according to [informant Andrea Volpe]."

Army officers ordered coverup
Wire Services | Submitted by: suicide_nation
"Testifying under immunity, three U.S. Army commanders admitted Friday that soldiers were told to cover up an incident in which two Iraqi civilians were forced off a bridge into the Tigris River, where family members say one of them drowned. The commanders, however, said they don't believe anyone died, despite what the family and prosecutors say... [Capt. Matthew Cunningham] also testified that he and other commanders told the soldiers to clam up because they feared higher-ups in the chain of command would use the incident against them."

FBI may have retaliated somewhat against Sibel Edmonds
Wire Services | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A classified Justice Department investigation has determined that a whistle-blower's allegations of security lapses in the FBI's translator program were at least partly responsible for her firing, the bureau director told senators. The department's inspector general, Glenn Fine, did not conclude that the FBI had retaliated against the translator, Sibel Edmonds, when she was fired in April 2002... The department's report concluded the FBI failed to adequately pursue Edmonds's allegation that her colleague committed espionage, Mueller wrote... Mueller told senators that the Justice Department investigation into Edmonds's firing, which remains classified, determined that Edmonds did not qualify for formal whistle-blower protection because she was a contract worker, not a full-time FBI employee."

Sikh photographer detained at Boston College
Boston Globe | Submitted by: dianalily
"A Boston College student leader who wears a turban and full beard in accord with his Sikh religion says he was detained and interrogated for seven hours Saturday night by Secret Service agents for doing nothing more than taking photographs of the campus. Sundeep Sahni, a senior with a double major in computer science and finance, said the Secret Service agents, who were staying on campus during the Democratic National Convention, suggested that he was a criminal, searched him and his car for weapons and bombs, and even had him sign a release form during the ordeal that gave them access to his psychiatric records. Sahni, 21, said he believes he was singled out because of his appearance. At one point during the searches, he said, an agent told him: 'I don't want you pulling an Uzi from your turban.' ... 'We want to arrange a conversation, which we hope will result in an apology,' said Boston College spokesman Jack Dunn. A Secret Service spokesman, however, said there will be no such meeting or apology."

Fahrenheit 9/11 bootleg broadcast on Cuba TV
Wire Services | Submitted by: optional
"U.S. director Michael Moore's anti-Bush documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 was shown on prime time Cuban state-run television on Thursday after playing to packed cinemas for a week. In a country with a deep-seated distrust of U.S. governments, the film has generated widespread public interest and added to a recent barrage of official criticism of President Bush. Cubans have stood in long lines to buy tickets to see rough DVD copies projected at 120 cinema theaters across the island to unfailing applause... Hostility between Washington and Havana dates back four decades since President Fidel Castro's 1959 revolution, but relations have become very tense since Bush launched a plan to undermine Castro's communist-run government in May."

Kickboxing orangutans draw fire in Thailand
Yahoo! Singapore | Submitted by: Thanatron Technician
"An international animal rights group has called on Thailand to ban controversial kickboxing fights between endangered orangutans held daily at a Bangkok wildlife park. The orangutans, wearing boxing gloves and garish Thai shorts, are put in a ring and encouraged to fight their opponents using fists, knees, elbows and feet... After watching a fight Wednesday with some 400 Thai primary schoolchildren, one spectator from California said he would not have brought his three children to the show if he knew it was going to be an animal brawl. 'It was all about hitting and violence and as the audience was mostly very young children it was very inappropriate.'"

Greenville News | Submitted by: THE MIGHTY SNERT
"State Agriculture Commissioner Charles Sharpe has been indicted on federal charges of extortion and money laundering after prosecutors accused him of taking money to help protect an illegal cockfighting ring in Aiken County... Gov. Mark Sanford suspended Sharpe from office as a result of the indictment, as required by the state's Constitution... The indictments followed a two-and-a-half year investigation by state and federal authorities, who kept mum about what they knew even as Sharpe was elected to statewide office in 2002... If convicted, the 65-year-old Sharpe faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of $500,000 on each of the indictment's first nine counts... The indictment alleges that on Sept. 26, 2002, and on Dec. 3, 2002, Sharpe illegally solicited and received payments from the South Carolina Gamefowl Management Association and their associates. The organization is composed of those involved in the raising, breeding and fighting of gamefowl, according to prosecutors."

Mormon dogma contradicted by DNA testing
Wire Services | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Fundamental teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints about some events in the Book of Mormon are changing - not through revelation, but through church-sanctioned scholars' reinterpretations, an Australian geneticist and former LDS bishop writes in a new book. In Losing a Lost Tribe: Native Americans, DNA and the Mormon Church, author Simon Southerton applies his own and others' DNA research... against traditional church teachings that Book of Mormon events took place across the Western Hemisphere and that Native Americans are the descendants of the Hebrews who settled the Americas in 600 B.C."

Several days after his meeting with Lutz, the head of the Anaheim homicide bureau and another detective visited Fitzgerald, who says the interrogation left him mystified.

NIST finally deprecates single-DES
Computerworld | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"[The National Institute of Standards and Technology] is proposing that the government withdraw Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) certification... The algorithm, sometimes referred to as single DES, uses a 56-bit key to encrypt blocks of data, and can produce up to 72 trillion unique keys. While that number of unique combinations was formidable in the 1970s and '80s given the power of computers at that time, experts were aware that the growth of computing power would render the algorithm breakable and that DES had at most a 15-year life span... In a 1998 experiment funded by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Kocher and his colleagues designed a machine for about $250,000 that could break one DES key a week, he said. [In practice, it only took 56 hours.] With computers doubling in speed every 18 months, a similar system designed with 2004 technology could presumably break a key in 1/64th of that time." [Meaning: 2.5 hours.]

English sheep outwit cattle guard
BBC | Submitted by: optional
"Hungry sheep on the Yorkshire moors have taught themselves to roll 8ft (3m) across hoof-proof metal cattle grids - and raid villagers' valley gardens... 'They lie down on their side, or sometimes their back, and just roll over and over the grids until they are clear. I've seen them doing it.' ... [district councillor Dorothy Lindley] added: 'What amazes us is they are not frightened. When you try to move them on they look at you as if to say it is their patch and you are not right in the head. You can shout at them and even if they see a dog they are not frightened.' ... A National Sheep Association spokeswoman said: 'Sheep are quite intelligent creatures and have more brainpower than people are willing to give them credit for.'"
