The northeastern Spanish region of Catalonia could hold regional elections on Feb.14, the speaker of the regional assembly Roger Torrent told RAC1 radio on Friday, after the region's separatist leader Quim Torra was barred from public office. Spain's Supreme Court upheld on Monday a ruling barring Torra from public office for 18 months, after he refused to comply with a decision by the country's electoral committee to remove a banner supporting jailed separatists from his government palace during a national election campaign in 2019. Catalonia's separatist drive has dominated Spanish politics for several years, particularly since the regional assembly made a short-lived declaration of independence in October 2017, following a referendum declared illegal by judges.

Robert Carlson, a California businessman who dreamed of becoming the cocaine king of the skies, used private jets for three years to funnel a billion dollars worth of cartel drugs through smaller airports across the country — exploiting a security blind spot. Instead, an informant tipped off federal agents and blew up one of the nation's largest airborne domestic smuggling rings — one in which Carlson moved drugs for three years for the Sinaloa Cartel. A closer look at Carlson's case — provided through federal court transcripts and interviews with prosecutors and agents — exposes gaping holes in security at the majority of the nation's more than 2,500 general aviation airports, where there are no Transportation Security Administration checkpoints.
