Monday, July 2 in the news....

  • British police arrested a fifth person on Sunday after a fuel-filled jeep was rammed into Scotland's busiest airport in what police said was a terrorist attack linked to failed car bombings in London. The Scottish incident was also infamous for producing a panic in which many men in dresses were seen running from the scene with women in pants.

  • A witness to the Glasgow attack said on BBC television that one of the car's occupants had been ablaze from head to foot, and as he struggled with the police, "was throwing punches and shouting 'Allah, Allah.'" The witness said he would have phoned in votes for the guy if the on-fire while scuffling with police routine appeared on 'Britain's Got Talent'.

  • 3 men have died in a fast-moving Utah wildfire. The 30 spouses have been informed of their passing.

  • Companies in the US have increased testing of Chinese goods. This comes on the back of poisons being found in food and toothpaste goods from China, and because the labels stating 'Your Life Sold Separately' started to raise suspicions.

  • A suspicious package has forced evacuations at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. Coincidentally, officials said the package originated in Dallas.
