Israel arrested six Jewish suspects Sunday in the grisly slaying of a Palestinian teenager who was abducted and burned alive last week — a crime that set off a wave of violent protests in Arab sections of the country. Leaders of the Jewish state appealed for calm amid signs the death was revenge for the recent killings of three Israeli teenagers. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a nationally televised statement, "We will not allow extremists, it doesn't matter from which side, to inflame the region and cause bloodshed. Murder is murder, incitement is incitement, and we will respond aggressively to both." He promised to prosecute those responsible to the full extent of the law. The region has been on edge since three Israeli teens — one of them a U.S. citizen — were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank last month. Last week, the teens' bodies were found in a West Bank field in a crime Israel blamed on the militant group Hamas.
An astonishingly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia turned worse Sunday when an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people disappeared over stormy Indonesian waters, with no word on its fate despite several hours of searching by air and sea. AirAsia Flight 8501 vanished in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning on its way from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Searchers had to fight against heavy rain. The Malaysia-based carrier's loss comes on top of the still-unexplained disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July over Ukraine. At the Surabaya airport, shocked family members pored over the plane's manifest, crying and embracing when they learned the news. Nearly all the passengers and crew are Indonesians, who are frequent visitors to Singapore, particularly on holidays.
The Germanwings co-pilot accused of intentionally setting a plane on a fatal descent in the French Alps had an illness that he kept secret from his employer. A statement from the Dusseldorf public prosecutor's office did not say what the illness was, nor whether it was a physical or mental health issue. But documents found in a search of Andreas Lubitz's home and that of his parents "indicate an existing illness as well as adequate medical treatment thereof." A spokesman for the German prosecutors office:
Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that he will give away his Apple fortune, at least $700 million, before he dies. The only direct contribution to his own family will be to ensure that his nephew can comfortably afford college. For many familiar with Cook's leadership, this doesn't come as much of a surprise. He comes across as warm in person as he is on stage. Cook's decision is also notable because it sets him apart from his predecessor, who had a widely reported personal distaste for philanthropy.
