Terrorist Massacres 38 in Tunisia: ... June 26, 2015.
A lone gunman has attacked western tourists on a crowded Tunisian beach with hand grenades and a Kalashnikov assault rifle, killing 38 people and wounding 39.
The 23 year-old Tunisian student calmly walked along the beach in a murderous rampage that lasted over half an hour before he was himself killed. Islamic State extremest group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
The incident will likely decimate Tunisia's all important tourist industry coming soon after an earlier terrorist attack (just 3 months ago) on a museum in the capital Tunis which killed 21 tourists.Uploaded June 26, 2015 by FRANCE 24 English.

Computer Glitch Crashes Airbus. ... June 10, 2015.
An Airbus A400M Atlas military transport plane has crashed shortly after take-off killing 4 of the 6 crew onboard... 2 seriously injured survivors were pulled from the wreckage.
The accident occurred as the 4-engine propeller driven plane took off near Seville, Spain where the new aircraft is being manufactured (as a replacement for NATO's aging Hercules fleet).
Faulty software installation has been blamed. Torque calibration parameters for the engines were deleted during the installation which caused 3 engines to malfunction.
Internet security expert Eugene Kaspersky cited this crash in highlighting concerns that in future cyber attackers will target software "not just to steal data... but to kill".Uploaded June 10, 2015 by DW English.

Tank Crushes Leaner Driver's Car: ... June 2, 2015.
An 18 year-old learner driver in Lippe, Germany has had a very lucky escape when she encountered a convoy of British tanks.
Apparently she didn't realize the British tanks had "right of way" as she pulled into the path of one of the 62 ton, armour-plated military monsters.
The tank driver couldn't stop in time but managed to swerve so he only crushed the Toyota hatch's engine and not the car's occupants. The Toyota was a write-off.Uploaded June 2, 2015 by ODN:

Bulldozer Flattens House & 4 Cars: ... June 8, 2015.
A disgruntled man in Newcastle, Australia has gone on a rampage with a stolen 49-tonne bulldozer demolishing a house and flattening 4 cars.

The attack occurred at 7am sending a terrified 56 year-old woman, her nephew and 2 daughters scrambling for their lives. All escaped unharmed.
