‘N.Y. Times’ probe finds no al-Qaeda link to Benghazi raid

The report found that the deadly attack was fueled by anger over an anti-Islam U.S.-made video. A lengthy New York Times investigation of the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, found no involvement by al-Qaeda or other international terrorists groups and was accelerated in part by anger at a U.S.-made video denigrating Islam. The attack left four Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. The six-part report on the investigation is written by David D. Kirkpatrick and was posted Saturday on the Times‘ website. It centers on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who, the newspaper says, had direct knowledge of…

CREDIT: REUTERS/JOHN RUWITCH (Reuters) – China formally approved on Saturday easing its decades-long one-child policy and the abolition of a controversial labor camp system, the official Xinhua news agency reported. Both were among a sweeping raft of reforms announced last month after a meeting of the ruling Communist Party that mapped out policy for the next decade. Under the new policy, couples will be allowed to have two children if one of the parents is an only child. Previously, a couple could generally only have a second child if…

Russia launches new Soyuz rocket

(Reuters) – Russia successfully launched an upgraded version of its Soviet-design Soyuz rocket on Saturday, the Defence Ministry said, giving a boost to the country’s troubled space program. The launch of the Soyuz 2.1v rocket, which features a new engine and digital guidance system, had originally been planned for the beginning of 2012 but was postponed due to an accident during testing which caused engine damage, Interfax reported. It was then scheduled to be launched earlier this week but was delayed again, Interfax reported. The lightweight launch vehicle blasted off Saturday afternoon from Russia’s Plesetsk launch pad in the northwest Arkhangelsk region….

Des raids de l’armée syrienne font au moins 25 morts à Alep

L’offensive aérienne sur l’ancienne capitale économique syrienne s’est poursuivie, samedi 28 décembre. Au moins 25 personnes sont mortes dans les raids de l’armée sur un marché et près d’un hôpital, rapporte l’Observatoire syrien des droits de l’Homme (OSDH). « Les raids ont visé un marché bondé où les gens achètent des légumes et des appareils électroménagers, ce qui explique le grand nombre de morts », a indiqué la Commission générale de la révolution, un réseau de militants. « Le bilan pourrait s’alourdir car il y a des dizaines de blessés », signale l’OSDH. L’ONG fait état de « barils d’explosifs » largués sur le quartier rebelle de Tariq al-Bab dans…

Test Drive: The best cars from 2013

We drive a lot of cars as part of the job, and the most common question is, “What’s your favorite?” Or the similar, “What’s the best thing you’ve driven lately?” Here are some of my picks from the past year’s Test Drive miles. Most fun: Jaguar F-Type V-8. Undiluted joy — right up until you lose your driver’s license. The F-Type’s worth buying (if you can handle a six-figure sticker price) just for the fabulous, outrageous exhaust sound. And it’s not a false promise; the F-Type goes as fast as that growl implies. TEST DRIVE: F-Type’s a howling beauty Even the…
