‘A police officer has died and two are seriously wounded after a shooting near the Champs-Elysees boulevard in Paris.
Isis have claimed responsibility for the attack, in which the officer was said to have been killed while in a car before the assailant was himself shot dead by police.
French President Francois Holland said he was convinced the “cowardly killing” on the busy shopping street in the centre of the capital was an act of terrorism.’

‘Today, April 15, 2017, is the fourth anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing, a hoax event performed by crisis actors and tell-tale bright red Hollywood blood. Sheila Casey has done a good job of exposing the hoax just by using the time line and photos of the event.
A number of agencies run training programs in which amputees working as crisis actors have a prosthesis affixed to resemble a bone as a remaining piece of a leg or arm. Casey examines the Boston event by timeline. First the crisis actors are assembled. Then the prosthesis is attached. Then the blood appears.
Notice the photo of Miracle Man laying on his side clutching the back of his left thigh with a straight line sticking out from what appears to be below his knee. This does not resemble a leg bone. Moreover, a person with an injury this severe would not be conscious, and certainly he would not be ignored while aid workers attended to those with lesser injuries. Note also the bright red color of what is pretending to be blood. Many surgeons and trauma medical personnel have testified that blood spilled in injuries is dark red.’
‘The explosives used in the attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus may have come from the German military, local media report, citing sources close to the investigation.
Around 100 investigators from the German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) are looking into the incident, one of whom spoke to the Welt am Sonntag newspaper on Saturday.
“The explosives in the pipe bombs, which were filled with metal pins, might have come from the stocks of the Bundeswehr [German armed forces], but that’s still being checked,” the newspaper quoted the anonymous investigator as saying.
The source added that specialized training was needed to use the military detonators, which are hard to acquire.
A spokeswoman for the federal public prosecutor’s office declined to comment on the newspaper’s claims.’
‘A closer look at photos from the town of Khan Shaykhun shows that the chemical attack site was tampered with and that the US report blaming the Syrian government can’t be true, says the MIT professor skeptical of the White House narrative.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Theodore Postol, who wrote a preliminary review of the US government claims earlier this week and shared his findings with RT, examined photographs of the attack site and concluded that the report endorsed by the White House “could not be true.”
Senior US administration officials who briefed the media on Tuesday admitted the White House intelligence was partly “based on the pro-opposition social media reporting,” which “tells a very clear and consistent story about what we think happened.”’
Postol’s six-page addendum, made public on Thursday evening, “unambiguously shows that the assumption in the [White House report] that there was no tampering with the alleged site of the sarin release is not correct.”’
‘US statements blaming the Syrian government for the chemical attack in Idlib closely resemble the claims the US made about the weapons of mass destruction (WMD) possessed by Iraq in 2003, the Syrian president’s senior advisor told RT.
The allegations made by the US concerning the Syrian government being behind the chemical weapons incident in the town of Khan Shaykhun, near Idlib, defy any logic, Bouthaina Shaaban underlined. She added that such an attack would be “against the interests of the Syrian government” as it would eventually only “harm both the Syrian people and the government.”
“One should ask, who the beneficiary of what has happened lately in Syria is,” the senior advisor to Syrian President Bashar Assad said. Shaaban said the terrorists could have carried out this attack to advance their offensive on the ground and to strengthen “the positions of their masters at the negotiating [table].”’
‘German prosecutors have cast doubts on the authenticity of letters suggesting Islamist militants carried out the attack on the bus carrying football team Borussia Dortmund to a match.
Three identical letters printed in German found near the scene of the attack on the bus which left one team member injured said it had been carried out “in the name of Allah”, according to broadcaster ARD.
The coach was carrying the UEFA European Champions league team to Signal Iduna Park in the city of Dortmund ahead of a quarter final match against AS Monaco when it was struck by three explosions.’
‘If an international inquiry into the chemical attack in Syria’s Idlib is not instituted, it will mean that the international community is not interested in establishing the truth about the matter, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after talks with his US counterpart in Moscow.
“I would like to stress that we are 100 percent sure that, if our colleagues in the UN or in The Hague will steer away from this investigation, it will basically mean that they do not want to find out the truth,” the Russian Foreign Minister said, adding, that Russia “will insist on” launching the investigation.
At the same time, Lavrov the official noted that Moscow that Washington is ready to support the idea of launching an international inquiry into the alleged chemical weapons attack in Idlib. He also stressedthat any UN Security Council resolution that focused on solely blaming Damascus and not on investigating the Idlib incident would be counterproductive.’
