Buffalo shooter, 18, who killed ten disguised himself as a HOMELESS person to perform reconnaissance on supermarket the day before he carried out massacre: DA says he's considering domestic terrorism charges
The teenager accused of murdering 10 people in a 'racist hate crime ' after firing a barrage of 50 shots at a supermarket in upstate New York conducted 'reconnaissance' at the store before carrying out his attack. Shonnell Teague, manager of Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo, claims suspected gunman Payton Gendron visited the store on Friday while disguised as a homeless person. 'He was acting like he was homeless and needed change,' Teague said. 'He really was checking out the store.' Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia confirmed the allegations, noting Gendron, 18, who lives nearly 200 miles away from Buffalo made multiple stops in the area the day before the massacre. The teenager admitted that he was targeting the black community when he carried out the massacre, authorities said.

Putin's commanders are slaughtering their own wounded soldiers rather than retrieving them from the battlefield for medical treatment, captured Russian soldiers reveal
Russian commanders are slaughtering their own wounded soldiers instead of retrieving them from the battlefield for treatment, Putin's own troops have said. A lieutenant-colonel was accused of personally shooting dead multiple troops as they lay injured. It comes as investigations in the horror town of Bucha have revealed 650 civilians were shot rather than hit by shelling in what police say proves they were executed by Russian thugs. But their barbarity is not directed only towards the Ukrainians, as Russians spoke out about the brutal killings of their own forces within the ranks. Captured troops recalled one commander asking a soldier if he could walk after suffering an injury, and when the man replied he could not, the officer killed him instantly.
Russia 'moves nuclear-capable missiles to Finland's border' and Putin warns of a 'response' as Helsinki and Stockholm bid to join NATO - while western allies stage war games in nearby Estonia
Video shows seven Iskander missile launchers moving through Russia (left), reportedly on the way to Vyborg on the Finnish border, putting them within striking distance of the capital Helsinki. Iskanders are short-range ballistic missiles that can be equipped with a range of warheads including nuclear charges four times the strength of the bomb that flattened Hiroshima. The footage emerged as Russia warned of 'far-reaching consequences' for Finland and Sweden's bid to join the alliance, while their parliaments began debating the move (top right, Finnish PM Sanna Marin leads the debate today). Just a few hundred miles away, in neighbouring Estonia, NATO launched a huge military drill involving 15,000 soldiers - including those from Sweden and Finland - as it rehearsed its response to a Russian attack (bottom right).

Pictured: Hero pastor who hit gunman with chair before elderly churchgoers hog-tied him and seized his weapons after he killed one and injured five when he opened fire at banquet in a Taiwanese church hours after Buffalo shooter killed ten
A hero pastor at a Taiwanese church in Orange County hit a gunman over the head with a chair while his elderly congregants hogtied him and confiscated his weapons after he went on a shooting spree on Sunday afternoon, killing one and injuring five. The man opened fire during a lunch reception at the Irvine Taiwanese Presbyterian Church in Laguna Woods, southern California, about 55 miles southeast of Los Angeles at 1.30pm on Sunday. A motive for the shooting has not yet been disclosed, but investigators don't believe the gunman, an Asian man in his 60s whose name was not immediately released, lives in the community. Longtime congregant at Irvine Jerry Chen, 72 had just stepped into the kitchen of his church's fellowship hall when he heard the gunshots and saw church members screaming, running and ducking under tables. 'I knew someone was shooting,' he said. 'I was very, very scared. I ran out the kitchen door to call 911.' Four of the five people wounded suffered critical gunshot injuries. Chen, who called emergency services from the church's parking lot, said he was in such a state of shock that he was unable to tell the operator his location. 'I had to ask someone else for the address,' he said. Chen said a group of about 40 congregants had gathered in the fellowship hall for a luncheon after a morning service to welcome their former Pastor Billy Chang (inset), who had served the church for 20 years and was a beloved and respected community member. Chang moved back to Taiwan two years ago. This was his first time back stateside, Chen said. Everyone had just finished lunch - a special bento box with teriyaki chicken. Fellow congregants told him that when the gunman stopped to reload, Pastor Chang hit him on the head with a chair while others moved quickly to grab his gun. They then subdued him and tied him up.

'Emmeline would be proud': JK Rowling praises feminist who 'never dropped her flag' as she stood up to masked trans activist thugs blocking statue to suffragette icon and 'intimidating and assaulting' women defending their rights
The unnamed woman supporting the campaign group Standing For Women (SFW) was assaulted during a counter-protest by the Manchester Trans Rise Up (MTRU) movement next to the city's statue of Emmeline Pankhurst in St Peter's Square. The two groups clashed after the trans activists arrived to disrupt SFW's speaking event in front of the statue as part of an event which said it aimed to reclaim 'a part of Manchester for women's voices'. And one woman with a suffragette flag was attacked by the masked mob, described online as men and trans men, who tried to pull her down off a wall and grabbed her by the arms - but she clung on to her flag throughout. And remarkably a police officer at the scene appears to lecture the assaulted woman, rather than tackle the group in balaclavas. Footage of the incident also suggests that trans activists were yelling that the lone protester was a 'fascist' and a 'Nazi'. MTRU removed the suffrage colours and put a trans flag around the Pankhurst statue's neck. One feminist confronted the masked group and asked them to 'blink once for yes, twice for no' if they thought they were helping the trans cause. Harry Potter author JK Rowling, shared the footage of incident on Twitter and said: 'I never expected the right side of history to include so many people in masks intimidating and assaulting women, did you? But she never dropped her flag. Emmeline would be proud.' Manchester Trans Rise Up claimed the day as a victory on Twitter, with supporters claiming they would be on the 'right side of history', and declaring: 'They didn't get hold of the statue at any point. We claimed the space for for the entire time. Well done'. But members denied the group in masks were part of their planned protest.
