The U.S. military released video showing an overnight raid with Afghan forces in that killed an Islamic State commander.
John Solomon: We now know for the first time that he also was passing along a second. Russia, Rosatom, was assisting Iran’s nuclear program. He gave very specific details and tonight after my story broke I got a call from some intelligence sources. They gave me a little bit more information. Doug Campbell was providing information about the Bushehr nuclear power plant in Iran. Russia was helping that specific plant. Why was that important? The US was so concerned about that that they eventually released the Stuxnet virus with Israel.
The FBI is investigating suspicious packages with apparent explosive components at several U.S. military installations and intelligence facilities in the Washington, D.C., area Monday, a law enforcement official said.
The National Defense University at Fort McNair in D.C. received a suspicious package about 8:30 a.m., and the building was evacuated.
The package tested positive for black powder, which can be used to make explosives, according to Fort McNair. An X-ray showed what appeared to be GPS and a fuse. It was rendered safe and the building was cleared about 1:15 p.m. The components are being investigated.
Suspicious packages were sent to two sites at Fort Belvoir in Virginia Monday afternoon: The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and another defense university. One contained liquid in a vial and a circuit board, the law enforcement official said. It also was rendered safe.
DOZENS of Chinese ships are exercising this week with an aircraft carrier in a show of force off Hainan Island in the South China Sea.
Pictures, provided by Planet Labs Inc, show a Chinese carrier group has entered the trade route as part of combat drills.
The Chinese navy claims the movements are part of routine annual exercises, according to Reuters.
The Liaoning carrier group last week traversed the Taiwan Strait, according to the Taiwanese defence ministry.
The photos, taken yesterday, show what appear to be at least 40 ships and submarines flanking the carrier Liaoning in what some analysts described as an unusually large display of the China’s expanding fleet.
They have emerged less than a week after Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country is prepared to fight bloody battles to retain its right as a superpower.
A missile attack on Riyaadh was documented by one brave person. Seeing it change direction and speeds is terrifying to say the least.

A gunman is believed to have killed at least two people during a hostage-taking at a supermarket in Trèbes, southern France.
An operation involving elite police is continuing at the Super U shop, where others were wounded.
Reports say the gunman, who remains in the supermarket, pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group.
Earlier, a policeman was shot and wounded while jogging with colleagues in Carcassonne, a 15-minute drive away.
He was shot in the shoulder by the same suspect involved in the supermarket hostage-taking but is not critically injured, Yves Lefebvre, secretary-general of the SGP Police-FO union told the Associated Press.
Trèbes Mayor Eric Menassi told BFM TV that the gunman was now alone in the shop with one police officer, after other hostages were freed.
The suspect is said to be heavily armed and asking for the release of Salah Abdeslam, the most important surviving suspect in the 13 November 2015 Paris attacks, which killed 130 people.
Reports say the suspect is known to French intelligence services and that his mother is at the scene.

Three years ago, when my friends and family in South Africa heard of my decision to move to Australia, many of them were apprehensive. They were worried about how I, an outspoken black woman, would cope. The stereotype of white South Africans who go to Australia because they are skeptical of black people running the country runs so deep that, in South Africa, telling a white person to “go to Australia” is shorthand for telling them they are racist.
Over the last three decades, Australia has become a symbol of racism to many South Africans. The country has come to be known as a site of racist fantasy — a place where black people have an insignificant physical and political presence. As I have learned over the last few years, race matters in Australia just as much as it does in the United States, or in South Africa where I come from. Indigenous Australians are the most incarcerated people in the world. Though the United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world, data from the World Prison Brief and the Australian Bureau of Statistics suggest the proportion of Indigenous Australians behind bars is the highest in the world — higher than that of African Americans.
So it was no surprise to me this week when Peter Dutton, the Australian minister for home affairs, weighed in on the plight of white South African farmers. Dutton suggested that Australia might look into supporting white farmers in South Africa whom he believes to be under threat and persecuted. He proposed offering them emergency visas, and that they needed protection in a “civilized country.” Dutton has been asked to retract his comments, but he is unlikely to do so. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has refused to condemn Dutton’s statements, though he hasn’t exactly supported him either.
Anyone with even a passing knowledge of South Africa will understand that white farmers are not an oppressed group. In the decades since apartheid ended, wealth has continued to be concentrated in the hands of the country’s tiny white minority. Whites represent less than 10 percent of the South African population, but they own more than 73 percent of agricultural land. To address this, South Africa’s parliament has voted in favor of a motion that will begin the process of amending Section 25 of the country’s Constitution, allowing the state to expropriate land without compensation where it may be necessary.
White farmers in South Africa are planning to emigrate after the government announced plans to take their land without compensation.
This month, MPs from the ruling African National Congress backed a motion calling for white-owned land to be seized, prompting farming unions to warn of a repeat of the land grabs in Zimbabwe, after which agricultural production collapsed.

35 people were killed when a rebel rocket shell hit a crowded marketplace Tuesday east of the Syrian capital Damascus.
Israel has admitted bombing a suspected Syrian nuclear reactor a decade ago in a move that it said was a warning to others.
The announcement came today after Israeli military censors lifted a more than 10-year order that had barred Israeli officials from discussing it.
The military also released footage of the moment the air strike destroyed the Al-Kubar facility in the desert near Deir-al-Zor, more than 300 miles inside Syria.
A series of black-and-white videos, taken above the target, shows the structure in cross-hairs.
An illegal African immigrant, Mbaye Diaye, who was wanted by the Spanish police for months died while being arrested due to a heart attack. So now that African migrants are taking to the streets and declaring war on the Spanish enclave in which they've besieged.
New airstrikes and barrel bombs pounded Syria’s Eastern Ghouta on Sunday as regime forces pressed a three-week advance that splintered the opposition enclave and trapped dozens under collapsed buildings.
“Enmity and hatred will reign between us until ye believe in Allah alone.”

Muslims believe that they have the right to burn, rape, enslave and murder all Kafirs (non-Muslims). They believe that they have the right to take the property of Christians and Jews, and enslave them.
In Sudan, over 400,000 people, mostly Christians, have died and 2,500,000 people have been displaced from their homes by the Muslim Janjaweed fighters.
Though technically illegal, slavery is widely practiced in Sudan and Saudi Arabia.
Welcome to Austria where Muslims in this Turkish Mosque associationaka "Viyana alpers Ocaklari" in Vienna lets children swear: "to the last drop of blood for Allah, Quran and Turkey and against Capitalism, Communism, Zionism and Imperialism to fight."
If you really believe that Islam is a religion of peace, your completely deranged!
Listen to this Muslim migrant from Afghanistan screams Allah Akbar as he attempted to attack Angela Merkel.
It was reported by several news agencies that the man was carrying a knife and had plans to kill the German Prime Minister.
Ironically, Angela Merkel is the sole reason that this Muslim migrant was even allowed in Germany to begin with. Despite the pleads from her nation to stop the influx of Muslim migrants that have destroyed numerous parts of their once great country.
The Turkish Air Force was filmed yet again bombing indiscriminate areas throughout Syria that are currently controlled by Kurdish forces that are backed by the United States government.
This is yet another example of the many war crimes committed by the current NATO member against the Kurds that are being slaughtered in mass by Sunni as well as Shiite militias throughout the Middle East.
The next leader of Saudi Arabia says his country would quickly obtain a nuclear bomb if arch rival Iran successfully develops its own nuclear weapon. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman made the statement about a possible nuclear arms race in the Middle East to "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell, in an interview set to air on this Sunday's "60 Minutes."
The interview is the first with a Saudi leader for a U.S. television network since 2005. O'Donnell, a contributing correspondent for "60 Minutes," asked the 32-year-old crown prince about the political, economic and social reforms unfolding in his kingdom.
The heir to the throne has ushered in significant changes for women in the conservative Sunni Muslim kingdom, including granting them the right to drive for the first time. The crown prince discussed foreign policy, including his views on Saudi Arabia's longtime foe, Shiite Muslim-ruled Iran.
Below is a preview of O'Donnell's conversation with the crown prince, and above is a clip in which Mohammed explains why, in his view, Iran's supreme leader is behaving like Adolf Hitler during the rise of Nazi Germany.
The cultural enrichment of Belgian continues to happen now that Muslim migrants have armed themselves and begun invading natural born citizens of Belgium's homes. Yet another example of how the EU is aiding Islamists in the takeover of their own countries.
More airstrikes hit Ghouta inflicting heavy loss of civilian life Now Playing: More airstrikes hit Ghouta inflicting heavy loss of civilian life Air strikes hit eastern Ghouta on Tuesday, (March 13), killing and injuring 45 citizens according to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor. The air strikes come as sick and injured civilians left the rebel enclave on Tuesday in the first medical evacuation since one of the deadliest assaults of the seven-year war began nearly a month ago. A video uploaded to a social media website purported to show air strikes hitting a built-up area in eastern Ghouta and smoke rising from targets. International attention has been focused in recent weeks mainly on the plight of civilians in eastern Ghouta, where the United Nations believes 400,000 people have been trapped under punishing bombardment, deprived of food and medicine. During the army's offensive, which began on February 18th, more than 1,100 civilians have died, the U.N. Office of Humanitarian Affairs says. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose forces have recaptured most towns and cities in Syria's heavily populated west, has vowed to reassert his control over every inch of the country. On Wednesday the Civil Defence search-and-rescue group in Syria, also known as the White Helmets, released video showing mass destruction in Eastern Ghouta caused by Syrian army shelling. The video shows debris, bodies on the ground, and people panicking as they moved through the destruction after their neighbourhood was bombed. Some 400,000 people are believed to be living there, trapped under a relentless air and ground bombardment and a crippling years-long siege.
How dire is the situation in France right now? Take a look at these Kurdish protesters being attacked by not only the French police, but also by Turkish and Sunni protesters that are more than likely paid by the Turkish government.

Theresa May dramatically pointed the finger at Vladimir Putin tonight over the nerve gas attack on a former spy.
The Prime Minister said the facts increasingly suggested Russia was behind the apparent 'hit' on double-agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury.
Branding the attack a 'reckless and despicable act', Mrs May said the substance used was a 'military grade' agent Moscow has produced.
Together with Russia's previous actions and tactics, including the killing of Alexander Litvinenko, the UK authorities had concluded it was 'highly likely' to be involved in the episode.
In a tough statement updating MPs after a meeting of the National Security Council, Mrs May raised the prospect of significant retaliation - making clear that the UK is already consulting Nato and other allies.
'It is now clear that Mr Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with military grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia,' Mrs May said.
'This is part of a group of nerve agents known as novichok.'
Russia's ambassador was summoned to the Foreign Office at 3.45 for a 'cool but firm' meeting with Boris Johnson. There was no handshake between the politicians as Mr Johnson outlined the 'outrage' felt by the British people.
Austin police say that today’s second explosion, and third of the month, is similar to two other previous incidents that happened in that city. The first was on March 2 and the second one, earlier this morning.
The latest victim was identified as a 75-year-old Hispanic female. Manley said she was in critical but stable condition.
The explosion happened in the 6700 block of Galindo Street. Another woman in her 80s experienced an unrelated medical issue, but did not require hospitalization.
“If you know anything about these attacks we are asking that you let us know. We are having innocent people get hurt across this community and it is important that we come together as a community and solve this,” said Austin Police Chief Brian Manley at a briefing Monday afternoon.
“On the first one we did believe it was an isolated incident,” continued Manley. “We had nothing that made us believe in that moment that it was part of anything larger than an isolated incident. Standing here today, having had the two incidents that we have had today and being able to do an initial review of the evidence we have, we do believe these are related.”
Manley addressed the style of the device without specifics. “There is a certain level of skill that is required to put a device like this together successfully and then to have it detonate in the manner in which these are and cause the significant injuries and death that they have,” said Manley.
Manley acknowledged that there were many visitors in town for the South By Southwest Festival and he addressed those concerns.
“It’s not time to panic, but it’s time to be vigilant and it’s time to pay attention,” said Manley. “It’s time to pull together as a city and as a community and solve this. We need the community’s participation: If you see a suspicious package on your porch or somebody else’s, let us know.”
