France Foiled 5 Terror Attacks Since Charlie Hebdo: PM

Five would-be terror attacks have been foiled in France since the deadly attacks on the Charlie Hebdo offices and a kosher supermarket in Paris just three months ago, the French prime minister said Thursday. One of those foiled plots involved 24-year-old student Sid Ahmed Ghlam, who was arrested Sunday with an arsenal of weapons and allegedly planned to attack at least one French church, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said. He has also been implicated in the killing of a 32-year-old Frenchwoman and mother, Aurelie Chatelain. "Never has the threat been so high," Valls said on the France Inter radio station, noting that hundreds of French nationals were now in Syria where they risked being radicalized. Read »

Michael Brown Family Files Suit Against Ferguson

The family of Michael Brown filed a civil lawsuit Thursday against the city of Ferguson, Missouri, former officer Darren Wilson and former police chief Thomas Jackson, NBC News reported. In announcing the wrongful-death suit, lawyers for Brown's family said they plan to show that Wilson "unjustifiably shot and killed" the teen and used "unnecessary and unreasonable" force when he shot the unarmed 18-year-old at least six times. The suit also cited the Justice Department's findings that Ferguson police have engaged in a pattern of biased policing, with black citizens bearing the brunt. The suit did not specify how much money the family is seeking, but it includes at least $75,000 for compensatory damages. Neither officials in Ferguson nor Wilson could be immediately reached for comment. Read »

Ariz. Officer Who Rammed Suspect Says He "Had No Choice"

An Arizona police officer who rammed his police car into an armed suspect in February told investigators he had no choice in the situation, although the suspect's lawyer has called the takedown an excessive use of police force, NBC News reported. "I have two thoughts that go in my mind, I need to shoot him to stop the threat or I need to run him over to stop the threat," Marina Police Officer Michael Rapiejko said in a recording of a police inquiry released by the department. But the attorney for suspect Mario Valencia has said Rapiejko's actions were excessive, and said Valencia was clearly suicidal. Read »
