Two dead, four wounded after student opens fire in Washington state school

SEATTLE (Reuters) - A student opened fire in the cafeteria of his Washington state high school on Friday, killing a classmate and wounding at least four others before he was killed amid the chaos of students scrambling to safety, authorities said.

Man who attacked Canada's parliament had troubled, transient past

MONTREAL/VANCOUVER (Reuters) - The Islamic convert that police say killed a soldier in Ottawa and then rampaged through Canada's parliament before being shot dead was a misfit and perhaps mentally ill, according to friends and family, while his troubled and transient past included robbery and drug offenses.

Ukrainian PM warns Russia may try to disrupt Sunday's election

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's prime minister warned on Thursday of possible attempts by Russia to disrupt an election in Ukraine at the weekend, a vote being held against a background of Russian support for separatist rebels and an unresolved row over gas. Sunday's poll is the first parliamentary election since street protests last winter drove Moscow-backed leader Victor Yanukovich from office and ushered in a pro-Western leadership. The results are expected to turn a political bloc supporting President Petrol Poroshenko into the leading force in parliament, where pro-Russian influence will be greatly diminished #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

Suspected Boko Haram fighters kidnap 25 girls in northeast Nigeria

YOLA/ABUJA (Reuters) - Suspected Boko Haram militants kidnapped at least 25 girls in an attack on a remote town in northeastern Nigeria, witnesses said, despite talks on freeing over 200 other female hostages they seized in April. John Kwaghe, who witnessed the attack and lost three daughters to the abductors, and Dorathy Tizhe, who lost two, said the kidnappers came late in the night, forcing all the women to go with them, then later releasing the older ones. The attack cast further doubt on government reports that it has secretly reached a temporary ceasefire with the rebels in order to secure the release of more than 200 schoolgirls they are holding hostage #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #values #rco #typeof-registered #cnt

Canada's Harper pledges tougher security laws after attack

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper pledged more surveillance and detention powers for security forces in Canada on Thursday after a gunman killed a soldier and rampaged through parliament before being shot dead. Addressing the House of Commons just meters away from where the gunman, a reported convert to Islam, was shot dead on Wednesday, Harper said lawmakers would expedite new powers to counter the threat of radicals. "The objective of these attacks was to instill fear and panic in our country," Harper said. #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #rch #typeof-registered #cnt
