A woman left onlookers gobsmacked when she climbed into an security scanner at a train station because she allegedly did not trust staff with her handbag.
The female commuter went to extreme lengths to keep her valuables in sight at all times, even travelling with them through the X-ray machine.
An unbelievable picture shows the unnamed woman on all fours on the conveyor belt, while staff stood watching, apparently speechless.
Bizarrely, the woman was happy to put her suitcases through the machine before walking through the security checkpoint holding the smaller handbag.
Security staff told her that this bag would also have to be checked and she reluctantly circled back to the airport-style luggage scanner.
A US jet operating in Syria destroyed a Russian-made T-72 battle tank near Al Tabiyeh, Syria, on Saturday, a Pentagon representative confirmed to Business Insider on Tuesday.
"The tank had been maneuvering with coordinated indirect fire on a defensive position occupied by Syrian Democratic Forces and Coalition advisers," US Marine Corps Maj. Adrian J.T. Rankine-Galloway said, adding that the SDF's "position was within effective range of the hostile weapons systems."
The US has been training, equipping, and backing the SDF rebels in Syria's civil war for years as Russia has provided similar assistance to forces loyal to the Syrian government in close proximity.
Fox News' Lucas Tomlinson first reported the news of the tank's destruction and said three crew members were killed, though their identities and affiliations were unclear. Tomlinson said the tank was destroyed after "pro-regime forces" fired on US special operations troops near the location where 500 pro-government forces attacked a headquarters used by SDF and US troops last week.
The former chief-of-staff of Iran’s armed forces said Tuesday that Western spies had used lizards to “attract atomic waves” and spy on his country’s nuclear program.
It was the latest in a long line of incidents of Western countries, including Israel, being accused of deploying secret agents from the animal kingdom.
Hassan Firuzabadi, senior military adviser to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was responding to questions from local media on the recent arrest of environmentalists.
He said he did not know the details of the cases, but that the West had often used tourists, scientists and environmentalists to spy on Iran.
“Several years ago, some individuals came to Iran to collect aid for Palestine… We were suspicious of the route they chose,” he told the reformist ILNA news agency.
“In their possessions were a variety of reptile desert species like lizards, chameleons… We found out that their skin attracts atomic waves and that they were nuclear spies who wanted to find out where inside the Islamic Republic of Iran we have uranium mines and where we are engaged in atomic activities,” he said.
Family and friends of a male escort found dead in the West Hollywood home of a high-powered Democratic Party donor last year continue to press for answers—in a case that has eluded the national media spotlight on incidents of sexual misconduct and racial injustice.
Gemmel Moore, 26, was discovered by police on July 27 inside the apartment of Ed Buck, 63. Buck is a well-known Democratic contributor, and has given more than $500,000 to an array of Democrats including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey and a variety of state and local organizations in California.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office initially ruled the death an accidental methamphetamine overdose. But the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Bureau on Aug. 14 announced they would investigate if there is any criminal culpability, after Moore’s family and friends disputed the initial finding.
Investigators told Fox News they would like to have the inquiry wrapped up in the near future—but have had trouble interviewing certain witnesses.
“We should have all the information, so we can make a good evaluation of everything that transpired to see if there’s any criminal culpability,” Lt. Joe Mendoza, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office homicide bureau, told Fox News in a recent telephone interview.
Detectives have already interviewed “numerous” witnesses who have information to share about their interactions with Buck, according to Mendoza. But investigators are trying to schedule additional interviews with people who may have useful information.
This is the shocking moment a lorry driver was forced to slam on the brakes after a car cut him off at high speed on a busy road with only inches to spare.
Dashcam footage shows the apparently impatient Peugeot 107 overtake the lorry on the chevrons before slowing down to a complete stop ahead of the lorry on the A638.
The car comes so close to the huge vehicle it disappears below the dash camera mounted in the lorry - while the driver frantically hammers the horn.
Bizarrely when the Peugeot comes to a complete stop in the busy road the driver gets out and lies down in the road, apparently inspecting his rear bumper.
The exasperated lorry driver gets out of his vehicle and points to the dash cam - before he appears to stick his fingers up at the unimpressed car driver.
A man who claims he is from the year 2030 - and has revealed a number of predictions for the future - has undergone a lie detector test and 'PASSED'.
The self-declared 'time-traveller' - who goes by the name of "Noah" - claims he has risked his life to tell those living in the present what the future has in store and insists he has to remain anonymous.
Among his bold claims are that Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020, Artificial Intelligence will gain momentum and Google-glasses style machines will take over.
Noah previously told Paranormal Elite he has anorexia and depression and is actually 50-years-old, but took an age rejuvenating drug to turn him into a 25-year-old.

Terrifying moment American luger Emily Sweeney crashes into wall at high-speed
President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law was taken to a Manhattan hospital as a precaution on Monday after a suspicious letter containing an unidentified white powder was sent to her apartment, senior law enforcement and city officials told NBC News.
The letter was addressed to Vanessa Trump's husband, Donald Trump Jr., the eldest child of the president and his ex-wife Ivana.
A letter containing an unidentified substance addressed to Donald Trump Jr. was sent to a Manhattan apartment building unit that belongs to Trump Jr.'s wife, Vanessa, the president's daughter-in-law, multiple senior law enforcement officials and city officials tell News 4 and NBC News.
A preliminary investigation suggests the substance mailed to the East 54th Street apartment is not hazardous but investigators are conducting a thorough probe out of an abundance of caution, the officials said.
Don Bouvet wore a suit for the second time in his life Friday, when he visited the White House to meet with the man he credits for saving his life: President Donald Trump.
Last year, Bouvet said he couldn’t afford the chemotherapy he needed to treat his bladder cancer. But more than a year after Trump gave his family $10,000, Bouvet says he’s cancer-free.
“The president saved my life,” Bouvet said during the emotional Oval Office meeting. “And I told him that.”
Bouvet’s son, Shane Bouvet, worked with Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016 by day while holding down a job as a delivery man by night.
An official portrait of former first lady Michelle Obama was unveiled at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery Monday morning.
The painting was done by Baltimore artist Amy Sherald, who is known for her social justice painting style.
“Let’s just start by saying, ‘Wow,’ again. Let me just take a minute. It’s amazing. Wow,” Obama said after the portrait was unveiled. The moment was met with a gasp and applause.
All presidents and first ladies have their portraits done and hung in the Portrait Gallery.
Congressional Republicans are continuing to expose the Democrats’ FISA abuses, summarizing the Nunes memo’s explosive contents in a new video released late last week.
Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Devin Nunes (R-CA), and John Ratcliffe (R-TX) appear in the video to detail how a piece of Democratic opposition research was used to approve surveillance on members of Donald Trump’s campaign.
A series of news clips and an appearance from Nunes introduces the central problem of the FISA warrants. “Political dirt was used by the FBI, and they knew it was political dirt, to open a counter-intelligence investigation into the other campaign,” Nunes explains.
News clips interrupt Nunes’ comments to report that “the memo reveals partisan bias at the Justice Department.”
Gowdy and Ratcliffe then further expand on the abuses at the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ).
Ratcliffe, a member of the Judiciary Committee blasts investigators for refusing to divulge the source of the Steele dossier, used to approve the FISA warrants, to the court. “The DOJ and FBI had four opportunities to disclose these facts in the original FISA application in each of three subsequent renewal applications over a nearly year-long period—but never did,” the Texas representative says.
“This dossier was paid for by the Democrat National Committee and Hillary Clinton. They hired a political opposition research firm, who hired Christopher Steele, who wrote it,” Gowdy explains in the video. “For reasons the Democrats never can explain, the FISA application went to great lengths to avoid identifying a material point about the financial source behind the dossier.”
The liberal media has done all it can in order to maintain the same talking in order to brainwash their followers and believing that president Trump is as evil as they claim he is.
The problem is, they all use the same exact talking points which proves that their only collusion with one another in an attempt to overthrow the current president of the United States.
This week in the media, pundits and anchors repeated a claim by Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff that the Nunes memo “cherry-picked” information.
During a CNN interview on Feb. 2, Schiff, who is the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, asserted that the Nunes memo “cherry-picked” information about the FISA warrant the FBI obtained to spy on Carter Page.
“What it ends up delivering is criticism of a single FISA application involving Carter Page and its renewals that cherry-picks information,” Schiff said to anchor Wolf Blitzer.
The media quickly took note, repeating the claim on CNN and MSNBC without attribution to Schiff or Democrats in general. They even used the exact same wording, insisting that the memo was “cherry-picked,” despite having little means to prove that Schiff’s assertion was even true.
Without access to all of the information that House Intel has access to, the media relied on a simple talking point from a Democrat to drive the narrative surrounding the memo.
Just one day after Schiff’s interview with Blitzer, the phrase “cherry-picked” popped up on CNN’s “New Day.”
Paul Hellyer, a former Canadian Minister of Defence, is believed to be the highest-ranking former politician to come out as a believer of the popular conspiracy theory.
As one of the world's biggest conspiracy theories, the Illuminati is said to be a secretive global elite which runs governments from behind the scenes and is planning to introduce a New World Order (NWO).
Its key members are said to be drawn from Hollywood and world political and business leaders, with some even accusing its true leaders of being reptilian lizards from space.
Accusations vary in extremities from the simple implementation of the NWO as a goal at the least, to the Illuminati being a highly Satanic cult seeking to return the devil to earth.
Other than repeated claims by conspiracy theorists, which have ballooned in number since the growth of the internet, there is no actual proof the Illuminati exists at all.
However, in a podcast, Mr Hellyer, who was in post in the 1960s, said the Illuminati, at least at its most basic concept, was real and all powerful.
He said corrupt hidden leaders continue to wage needless wars and focus on profits, rather than stopping climate change.
In San Jose protesters disrupted the mayor’s State of the City Address, chanting, “Say it loud, say it clear, Google is not welcome here.”
It’s a tactic not seen very often.
They were fired up and the protests were loud and disruptive by design.
“Not our mayor!” they yelled.
“People are fearing that they won’t be able to live in San Jose,” said Serve the People San Jose member Liz Gonzalez.
It’s a grassroots group opposed to Google’s plans to build a mega-campus in downtown.
“We have to be in their face because we’re fighting to stay in the city that we grew up with that we love where our family and friends are,” she says.
The group interrupted Mayor Sam Liccardo’s address four times…
“Serve the people!” they yelled.
“I just don’t think shouting at each other is the right way to have a dialogue,” says City Councilwoman Deb Davis.
Councilwoman Davis worries their message about the woeful lack of affordable housing will be overshadowed by their in-your-face methods.
“We have a public process set up. It will be public,” she says. “There will be plenty of time for everyone’s voices to be heard.”

CNN’s Chris Cuomo took issue with the friendly coverage many American outlets afforded Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, at the Olympics this weekend.
Discussing the potential for talks between the United States and Pyongyang with a panel, Cuomo took issue with how some news outlets decided to cover the Kim-centric events.
“Do you think there’s an earnest move by North Korea to change its ways with a charm offensive?” Cuomo asked guest Gordon Chang before offering his own opinion. “I don’t buy it at all.”
“I thought it was silly how people were pointing out his sister as some type of new vehicle. This is a murderous, oppressive regime. She is a main official for it,” Cuomo continued, referencing media coverage of the younger Kim’s arrival in South Korea.
Chang, an expert on North Korean issues, affirmed Cuomo’s view, pointing out that Kim was there only to achieve sanction relief.
Before watching the video we clarify that despite the brutality of the images NONE of the people involved in the accident died. From Russia , driving like crazy and not wearing a seat belt ( neither the driver nor the companions) has consequences.
The horrifying moment a doomed Russian plane smashed into the ground killing 71 passengers appears to have been captured on film.
Chilling CCTV footage shows a blaze followed by a train of smoke disappearing into a snowy landscape.
It is unclear if this is the main body of the aircraft or a part of the wreckage which has broken off.
The footage may give vital clues to crash experts seeking an explanation for the tragedy.
At the crash site, the debris is mainly small pieces strewn over a large area, while the bodies of passengers and crew are "unrecognisable", Russian officials say.
Authorities are preparing DNA tests for grieving relatives.
Thugs cornered a man before stabbing him FOUR times in a shocking attack outside a pub captured in CCTV footage .
The gang of youths appeared to pin the man against the wall before launching the attack which left the victim hunched over and clutching his leg.
The horrifying incident was recorded on CCTV footage from The Fountain pub nearby which has cameras overlooking the side street where it took place.
The video footage shows the victim being cornered and then being repeatedly stabbed.
Ann Brennan, who owns the pub in Humberstone Gate, Leicester, told the Leicester Mercury that she was working when she saw a crowd of youths with hoodies on outside.
She said: "Then someone came in and said they wanted to ring 999, that somebody had been stabbed.
A Russian belly dancer arrested in Egypt for 'performing without any knickers' has spoken for the first time about her ordeal after her release on bail.
Russian Ekaterina Andreeva, 31, described her whole ordeal as the 'worst days of her life' after she battled to clear her name for six days.
Andreeva - who goes by the stage names Johara and Gawhara - was hauled off stage last Tuesday after officers stormed in on one of her performances at a nightclub by the Nile in Giza.
Police told her the performance was 'too provocative' and 'too sexy' after officers spotted videos of her performances on social media, in which they claim she wasn't wearing any underwear.
A humongous wild boar dubbed 'Pigzilla' has been caught eating out bins 'just a few feet from primary school.'
Parents spotted the giant beast chowing down on some rubbish as they walked their kids to school in Hong Kong.
People have reacted in horror at the sighting as boars can be incredibly dangerous - with razor sharp teeth and a huge amount of power in their front legs.
The short clip shows the animal with three of its own little ones, who all seem to patiently wait at her trotters while she gets them a meal.
She is seen grabbing at a rubbish bag with her teeth as she balances her feet on the edge of the rubbish bin.
Maria Bariromo: Congressman how far up the chain does this go? Was Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton basically pulling the strings?
Rep. Devin Nunes: Well, we know the Attorney General was briefed in the spring of 2016. So we know she was made aware. We know now by the people of State Department who said John Kerry, Secretary Kerry was briefed on the dossier. We know most of the news media was briefed on the dossier. So all of this was out there. Everybody I think but the Trump campaign, Republicans and the American people, everybody else outside of those three groups knew about the dossier and were actively trying to open investigations, start investigations, to use this dirt to go after the other campaign.
Charles McCollough III is the former Intelligence Community Inspector.
He was threatened in 2016 after he exposed Hillary Clinton for having classified documents on her unsecured home-brew server.
“I was told that we would be the first two to be fired with her administration… That, that was definitely going to happen.”
Pete Hegseth: “Trust the department, not the president. Here to react Dan Bongino former NYPD officer, former Secret Service agent and host of the Dan Bongino show which can you find on anywhere where podcasts are available. Dan, thank you for joining us this morning. So your reaction to how Democrats are reacting to the White House decision to say, hey, let’s make sure we are not releasing anything to compromise national security in this memo.”
Dan Bongino: “Pete, the Democrats have forfeited all credibility on this case. They haven’t told the truth from day one. Pete, here’s what even more tragically amusing about the Democrats. They step — they lie so much they step on their own story. They told us before the release of the Nunes Republican memo oh my gosh sources and methods, it’s going to jeopardize national security. Nobody should see this. Cover it up. Sweep it under the rug. Then the memo came out oh this is a big nothing burger. This is a total dud. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. They have not told the truth from day one on this. They have forfeited all their credibility. This is important. They are covering up what I believe to be the biggest scandal in modern political history. That is the being on of the trump team by the Obama Administration with no evidence to do so.”
ESPN Reporter's Weave Was Falling Apart On Live TV!
ICE cool skater Yura Min didn't let a nightmare wardrobe malfunction ruin her Olympic debut today.
The South Korean star's skimpy red dress slipped just seconds into her short dance routine threatening to reveal just a little too much to the millions watching around the world.
As she was spun around by partner Alexander Gamelin, she had to keep adjusting her red top to prevent showing off more than her medal ambitions.
At one point the top slipped just a little too far but instead of going into a flap Yura just carried on with her well-rehearsed routine.
Yura, who was competing in the figure skating team event, was praised by commentators for recovering from the sartorial setback with so much style.
The skater, a dual citizen of South Korea and the United States, told the Detroit Free Press that the hook on her top came undone just seconds into her routine.
Former Vice President Joe Biden dodged a question Thursday about whether Hillary Clinton would have won the 2016 presidential election if she had been a better candidate.
MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell spoke with Biden, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate who declined to run in the 2016 election despite many Democrats having hoped he would.
Mitchell first asked Biden if former FBI Director James Comey was to blame for Clinton's loss.
"If he had not reopened that investigation, look, there's no doubt that it had to hurt her. There's no way it could have helped her, that happening," Biden said of the Clinton email investigation. "Whether that was enough to make the 72,000 vote difference in the key states, it remains to be seen. But let me put it this way, it sure didn't help."
"Would she have won if she were a better candidate?" Mitchell asked.
"Look, I uh, I think what happened was something we've never seen in American politics," Biden said before talking about the widespread expectation that Donald Trump wouldn't be able to win the election.
Biden added that during the campaign, Trump prevented Clinton from ever being able to turn the debate to the issues and "subject matter."
