Isis militants behead two Syrian women for witchcraft

First such executions among more than 3,000 carried out by Islamic State since it proclaimed a caliphate a year ago

Islamic State militants have beheaded two women in a province in eastern Syria after accusing them of witchcraft, the first time such an execution has been carried out under the rule of the self-proclaimed caliphate, activists said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group with wide contacts inside Syria, said Isis executed the two women and their husbands this week in the province of Deir Ezzor, where the militants are vying for control against forces loyal to Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

12 Staffers Placed On Administrative Leave At Clinton Correctional Facility

DANNEMORA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Twelve more employees at the upstate New York prison where two convicted murders escaped more than three weeks ago have been placed on administrative leave — including the prison’s superintendent and his deputy in charge of security.

The State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision released a statement Tuesday announcing three members of Clinton Correction Facility’s executive team and nine security guards had been penalized.

The department said as a new leadership team transitions this week, Assistant Commissioner for Correctional Facilities James O’Gorman will oversee the prison.

“Assistant Commissioner for Correctional Facilities James O’Gorman will oversee,” the statement said in part.

The move comes as part of an ongoing review of the June 6 escape by Richard Matt and David Sweat.

Matt was killed by authorities last Friday and sweat was wounded by a bullet and captured Sunday.

The department didn’t identify the suspended staff.

Prison Break Update: Two Prison Leaders On Leave

If you thought by one capture of David Sweat and the death of Richard Matt was the ending of this insane joyride, its not even close.

rc="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">

Today, Superintendent Steven Racette and Deputy Superintendent Stephen Brown from the Clinton Correctional Facility have been placed on administrative leave due to the investigation on the prison. Cops are still trying to figure out how Sweat and Matt broke out of the prison and believe that it is due to an inside leak. Ever since the break, the prison has been on maximum security lockdown. For about three weeks, county and state officials in upstate New York have been chasing them down. On Friday, Matt was shot and killed, while on Sunday, Sweat was captured but not before getting shot by authorities.

According to Governor Andrew Cuomo, the prisons planned the escape. While Sweat was in the hospital, he told officials that they  planned on working with Joyce Mitchell, a prison worker. In their plan, she was suppose to pick them up, kill her husband, and then the three of them would head to Mexico. Right now, officials have arrested Mitchell and now she in jail until further notice. Her attorney told CNN that she was:

“ecstatic both that the manhunt has ended and also that it appears no harm came to any other person.”

The escape plan for the prisons didn’t go as plan when both men popped out the manhole near the Clinton Correctional Facility and Mitchell was no where to be found. Further details are slowly coming out about each escapee and why the decided to separate. According to Cuomo, Matt, 49, slowly started to become a burden to Sweat, 35. Sweat felt like Matt was slowing him down. This was probably because Matt was much older than Sweat and officials found out that Matt had blisters on his feet. Based on evidence, officials say that Matt was probably sick from contaminated water or food. Eventually, Sweat left Matt behind and thats when Matt was tracked down and killed.

Iran, powers give themselves to July 7 to strike deal

U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and U.S. Under Secretary for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman meet with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at a hotel in ViennaBy Parisa Hafezi and John Irish VIENNA (Reuters) – Iran and six world powers gave themselves an extra week to reach a final nuclear accord after it became clear they would miss a deadline on Tuesday, with U.S. and Iranian officials sounding upbeat even though obstacles remain. With all sides accepting that Tuesday's original deadline would come and go without an agreement, Iran and the six powers agreed to extend an interim accord until July 7 in order to have more time to negotiate a comprehensive agreement. Under the interim agreement, reached in November 2013 and known as the Joint Plan of Action, Iran agreed to take some steps to constrain its nuclear program in exchange for limited relief from economic sanctions ahead of talks on a final deal.

England Man Perfectly Praises Lionesses’ Women’s World Cup Run, Trolls the Men

England’s Lionesses have been largely celebrated for reaching the semi-finals of the Women’s World Cup for the first time in the team’s history. 

While their surprising surge and applause-worthy performance has been decidedly less publicised than the men’s bumbling 2014 World Cup (last-place group-stage finish), some have taken note of England’s triumph in Canada. 

Phil Hand, take a bow. 

Hand, of Southampton, wrote in to The Times and flipped the sexist schoolboy idiom of “playing like a girl” to perfect effect.

LG’s hexagonal battery gives an extra charge to round smartwatches

LG has developed a hexagonal smartwatch battery

If you want a smartwatch with week-long battery life, then you’re better off with something like Pebble than a color touchscreen watch – they typically only last a day or two.
