Turkey opposition rudderless after Erdogan triumph

Turkey's newly elected President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (C) and newly designated Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu (right of Erdogan) greet the crowd in Ankara, on August 22, 2014 President-elect Recep Tayyip Erdogan's election victory this month has left Turkey's opposition party riven by a revolt over its future with little prospect of a radical change in strategy. The main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) proudly boasts its heritage as the party of modern Turkey's founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk but has shown little of the historic leader's vision in recent years. Erdogan and his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) have won nine victories in elections and referenda in more than a decade dominating Turkish politics, leaving the CHP trailing in their wake. The outgoing premier's victory in presidential elections on August 10 has sent shockwaves through the CHP, which presents itself as the protector of Ataturk's secular values against the Islamic-rooted AKP.

Utah teen arrested after bomb threats shut down school

By Jennifer Dobner SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - The FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force and local police arrested a 16-year-old Utah boy accused of making bomb threats and ransom demands over Skype that shut down the first day of classes at his former high school, authorities said on Friday.

Police said the teen was arrested at his home late Thursday and is being held in a juvenile detention facility on suspicion of multiple felonies including making threats of violence and making terroristic threats involving weapons of mass destruction.

Breach at U.S. government contractor affected at least 25,000 workers

By Jim Finkle BOSTON (Reuters) - A cyber attack at a company that performs background checks for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security compromised data of at least 25,000 government workers, and that number could rise, an agency official said on Friday. The official told Reuters that DHS plans to notify approximately 25,000 employees that they may be "impacted" by the computer breach at Falls Church, Virginia-based US Investigations Services (USIS) over the coming days. It did say the intrusion has "all the markings of a state-sponsored attack." Security experts say the attack was particularly disturbing because files on background checks typically contain highly personal data that foreign intelligence agencies could attempt to exploit to intimidate government workers with access to classified information.

China warplane in 'dangerous' intercept with US jet: Pentagon

This image obtained August 22, 2014, courtesy of the Department of Defense shows a Chinese fighter jet in a photo taken by a US Navy P-8 crew A Chinese fighter jet flew perilously close to a US military aircraft this week in a "very dangerous" incident in international air space east of Hainan Island, the Pentagon said Friday. The episode raised tensions and underlined the growing rivalry between the United States and China, with Beijing building up its military and asserting its territorial claims across the Pacific. "On August 19, an armed Chinese fighter jet conducted a dangerous intercept of a US Navy P-8 Poseidon patrol aircraft that was on a routine mission," spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told a news conference. The close call occurred about 135 miles (220 kilometers) east of China's Hainan, he said.
