|Remains found in crocodile believed to be missing Queensland pensioner|
|Mon, 16 Oct 2017 23:23:23 -0400|
Human remains have been found inside a crocodile that is believed to have killed a pensioner in Queensland last week. The 4.3-metre estuarine crocodile was captured on Monday night at the Mowbray River near Craiglie in northeast Australia, close to where Anne Cameron went missing from an aged care facility near Port Douglas seven days ago. The 79-year-old is thought to have become disorientated on a walk and wandered into dense bushland. Police later found clothing, a walking stick with her name and human remains beside a crocodile-infested creek near Four Mile Beach, about a mile from the aged care facility. Wildlife officers set traps to try to catch the creature that is believed to have killed Ms Cameron. The captured animal was examined in Cairns on Tuesday, with human remains found inside. A Saltwater Crocodile is pictured at the Australian Reptile Park in Sydney Credit: Ian Waldie/Getty Images "Investigations continue with officers preparing a report for the coroner," police said. Isabella Eggins, a granddaughter of Ms Cameron, said last week the family feared she had died in tragic circumstances. “It is my deep regret to inform you that following an extensive search and the discovery of certain items as a result of that search, we have the firm belief that my mother Anne Cameron has passed away in tragic circumstances,” Ms Eggins said on Facebook. Saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to seven metres long and weigh more than a tonne, are a common feature of the vast continent's tropical north and kill an average of two people a year. A series of crocodile attacks in the region in recent years has prompted calls for the state government to order a cull – a move that has so far been rejected. Ms Cameron's family also said they did not want to see any crocs culled. "The crocodiles... are not responsible for being crocodiles, and doing what crocodiles do," her son Craig Eggins said, according to the Cairns Post.

|Death toll from US drone strike in Pakistan rises to 26: officials|
|Tue, 17 Oct 2017 12:55:11 -0400|
The death toll from a US drone attack on a compound used by the Taliban-allied Haqqani network has risen to 26, officials said Tuesday, less than a week after a US-Canadian family held captive by the militants was rescued. The barrage on Monday targeted a meeting of Haqqani fighters in Pakistan's remote tribal Kurram district along the Afghan border in the deadliest attack on the group this year. "First drone strike killed five fighters from Haqqani network and minutes apart a second drone then fired two more missiles after militants arrived to retrieve dead bodies from the rubble," a senior government official in Kurram told AFP Tuesday.

|Wanted man turns himself in after losing Facebook bet with police|
|Wed, 18 Oct 2017 10:54:09 -0400|
A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. “I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. “And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.” In a follow-up post, the department said he “may or may not be a man of his word,” adding, “it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.” The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. “Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said. “He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.” Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?

|Boeing could rebut Airbus deal with new plane, partner|

Bombardier's alliance with Airbus creates new hurdles for Boeing, but the US giant could respond by deepening its collaboration with Brazil's Embraer and launching a new aircraft, analysts say. The surprise deal with Airbus was designed to let Bombardier proceed with its C Series program and avert draconian US sanctions that had been ordered in a preliminary Commerce Department decision in response to a Boeing complaint. "Anything that's good for Airbus is bad for Boeing of course," said Jim Corridore, an analyst at CFRA Research, summarizing the reaction of many observers to the Airbus-Bombardier venture.
|Rose Leslie forced Kit Harington to wear a spectacularly embarrassing Halloween costume|
|Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:16:14 -0400|
If you happen to be Kit Harington, what's the most embarrassing outfit you could wear to a Halloween party? Well, there are probably a whole bunch of possibilities, but there's one costume idea in particular that blows all the others out of the water — and it's something Harington actually has dressed up as. SEE ALSO: Kit Harington played an incredibly cruel April Fools' prank on Rose Leslie Harington shared all the glorious details in a recent interview with Heat magazine, BuzzFeed reports. According to everyone's favourite White Walker-slayer, the costume was for a "bad taste" themed party — and the idea for it came from Harington's fiancée and former Game of Thrones co-star, Rose Leslie. "She pulled out a Jon Snow costume, and Rose just whispered in my ear, ‘I won't love you if you don't wear it... You should do it,'" said Harington. That's right: a Jon Snow costume. And just to make things that little bit more perfect, the costume was apparently one of those all-in-one jobs you get from a Halloween shop. “It was really embarrassing," Harington continued. "The people bringing around canapés were looking at me, thinking: 'You're sad, man! You've come to a party dressed as your character.'" Tragically we don't have an image of the costume itself, but we imagine it looked something like this: Image: halloweencostumesWell played, Leslie. After seeing footage of the April Fools' prank Harington pulled on his partner earlier this year, he almost certainly deserved it. WATCH: Kit Harington surprised his fiancé with a severed head
