Fars said the gun was mounted on the back of a Nissan truck that self-destructed after a three-minute attack.
Consumer Reports has no financial relationship with advertisers on this site. If you live in a snowy region and you own a lawn tractor or zero-turn-radius riding mower, you may have thought about attaching a plow or snow blower to your mower—especially when the snow falls heavy and deep. You may think that because you've already laid out the cash for the tractor, you'll save money buying an attachment rather than another piece of pricey power equipment.
President Trump said the other day that he'd leave office if he loses the vote of the Electoral College on December 14. This is not the kind of assurance presidents of the United States typically need to make, but it was noteworthy given Trump's disgraceful conduct since losing his bid for reelection to Joe Biden on November 3. Behind in almost all the major polls, Trump stormed within a hair's breadth in the key battlegrounds of winning reelection, and his unexpectedly robust performance helped put Republicans in a strong position for the post-Trump-presidency era.
The funeral of a Florida teenager ended abruptly on Saturday afternoon after an unknown gunman fired bullets at the service, hitting the deceased's mother. People gathered to honour Sincere Pierce, 18, at Riverview Memorial Gardens in Cocoa, Florida – who was one of two teenage victims in the 13 November killing by a Brevard County deputy officer. Gunfire rang out just as the pastor finished his prayers for Mr Pierce and friends and loved ones were placing flowers on his casket.

The South Dakota Department of Health on Saturday reported 54 new deaths from COVID-19, surpassing the state's previous record death total of 53. The same day, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem encouraged state residents in a tweet to go shopping, writing that small "businesses are the lifeblood of so many South Dakota communities." Noem, a Republican, has refused to issue a statewide mask mandate and has otherwise disputed science and calls to enact stricter measures to contain the virus in the state.
In recent months, scores of people have been arrested, some brutalised or killed as Mnangagwa's regime mounts an unprecedented clampdown on pro-democracy campaigners, opposition political party members, journalists, and ordinary citizens daring to voice disquiet over rising corruption, the failing economy and a human rights crisis. In 2018, six people were brutally killed when soldiers opened fire on opposition supporters who were protesting against attempts by the ruling ZANU-PF party to steal a tightly contested general election. And last year, 17 more people were killed when soldiers openly fired shots at citizens protesting over massive fuel price hikes.
A Charles Manson follower convicted over the notorious 1969 La Bianca killings has her parole blocked for a fourth time by a California governor. Leslie Van Houten, 71, is serving a life sentence for helping the late Manson kill Los Angeles grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary, in August 1969. Members of Manson's cult — including Van Houten, who was just 19 at the time — smeared the couple's blood n the walls after fatally stabbing them.
President Donald Trump on Sunday said he believed the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice may be involved in an effort to steal the election from him. There is no evidence to support this, nor is there evidence to support his baseless claims of voter fraud in the election, and the president offered none during the Sunday interview. Trump also said the FBI and DOJ were "missing in action," bemoaning that the agencies weren't doing enough to prove his unsubstantiated claims.
People in Poland, a major opponent of homosexuality, are unhappy after a new documentary claimed that national icon Frédéric Chopin had love affairs with men. While homosexuality is legal in Poland, gay people can't get married or have civil partnerships. The country's Fryderyk Chopin Institute said that the letters didn't prove anything, as it was hard to translate his "musical and complicated" language accurately.
A sailor who went missing off the Florida coast was found alive nearly two days after he disappeared, clinging to his capsized boat 86 miles from shore. Stuart Bee, 62, set out to sea on his 32-foot boat at 4pm on Friday from Port Canaveral on Florida's east coast, according to The US Coast Guard. After he did not return from his trip on Saturday, Mr Bee's family reported him missing, saying it was unusual for him to stay out at sea for more than 24 hours.
In the emergency room of Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Michigan, Pam Warfle begged for compassion. In that moment, her 21-year-old son Jonathan, who has always lived with his parents and attends life skills classes, became her hero. Leona Smith — a feisty, retired factory worker who hadn't been hospitalized since her knee replacement two decades ago — also had COVID-19 and was struggling to breathe.
Those same four justices are now on high alert for a promising case in which to expand Second Amendment rights, having written repeatedly and emphatically about the court's failure to take gun rights seriously. Barrett seems poised to supply the fifth vote they need. A Second Amendment case decided last week by the federal appeals court in Philadelphia is a promising candidate for Supreme Court review, not least because it presents an issue on which Barrett has already taken a stand.
President Donald Trump suggested on Fox Business that several world leaders have supported his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud. Neither Trump nor the White House offered any evidence of such conversations. Numerous world leaders have congratulated and recognized Joe Biden as the president-elect, almost immediately after the race was called for him.
An eight-mile wall of prehistoric rock art featuring animals and humans has been discovered in the Chiribiquete National Park, Colombia, in the Amazon rainforest. Dubbed the “Sistine Chapel of the ancients”, the 12,500-years-old artwork was uncovered by a British-Colombian team of archaeologists under the leadership of José Iriarte, professor of archaeology at Exeter University, and was funded by the European Research Council. Experts have dated the rock art based on the portrayal of animals that are now extinct, such as a mastodon — a prehistoric relative of the elephant, known to have inhabited North and Central America about 12,000 years ago.
The latest information from the Hermit Kingdom comes from South Korean lawmakers, who spoke to reporters on Friday after having a private meeting with the National Intelligence Service NIS , the country's chief intelligence agency. The other person was allegedly a top government official who was caught violating restrictions placed on goods from outside the country amid the pandemic, AP reported. North Korea's economy has borne the brunt of the coronavirus pandemic as the country was forced to seal its border with its biggest trading partner, China, back in January.

Around Christmas in 2014, Carter, her mother and five siblings traveled from Tallahassee to Miami to visit their grandmother.

The newly-elected Republicans are calling themselves the "Freedom Force."

HBO recently greenlit a TV adaptation of popular video game series "The Last of Us," which follows a zombie apocalypse. It will likely air alongside the final season of AMC's hit zombie series "The Walking Dead," which will end its 11-season run in 2022. "TWD" universe chief content officer, Scott Gimple, tells Insider he plans to watch both and hopes others do as well.
“This metastasizing debt crisis has had tremendous social costs. An entire generation has been set back.”
“It is not the government’s job to step in and rescue those who took on more debt than their future incomes would support.”
“Many student-borrowers need relief, but well-off borrowers who are thriving — thanks to their college degrees — do not.”
“It will stimulate the lagging economy. And though not everyone will directly benefit, the country as a whole will improve.”
“Canceling student debt would cost billions of dollars each year and would exacerbate, not lessen, economic inequalities.”
