Teenager attacks several people with axe in Swiss village

Teenager attacks several people with axe in Swiss villageA 17-year-Latvian attacked and injured "several" people with an axe in a Swiss village on Sunday night.   Police have said there is no indication of terrorism.  St. Gallen canton (state) police said the rampage began shortly after 8pm when the teenager attacked several people at a town square in Flums in the northeast of the country. He then fled with a stolen car, which later was involved in an accident. Police closed roads and helicopters flew overhead as they tried to apprehend the assailant, according to reports. The suspect continued on foot before attacking more people at a gas station shop, where he was arrested, police said. Police think the arrested teenager acted alone and the statement said there was no indication he has ties to extremists. Police didn't specify exactly how many people were hurt and said they were working to determine how serious the injuries were. No information on a possible motive was provided.  The teenager reportedly escaped in a car after the attack.

Go home, Tillerson tells Iranian-backed militias in Iraq

Go home, Tillerson tells Iranian-backed militias in IraqBy Stephen Kalin and Jonathan Landay RIYADH/DOHA (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Sunday it was time for Iranian-backed militias and their Iranian advisers who helped Iraq defeat Islamic State to “go home”, after a rare joint meeting with the leaders of Iraq and Saudi Arabia. The United States is concerned that Iran, a Shi’ite regional power, will take advantage of gains against IS in Iraq and Syria to expand the influence it gained after the U.S. invasion in 2003, something Sunni Arab rivals such as Riyadh also oppose.
