(Now there is something you didn’t used to read in the headlines very often)
The MI6 spy who was found dead inside a holdall bag in his bathtub in London hacked into secret data held on former U.S. President Bill Clinton, The Sun newspaper has sensationally claimed today.
Gareth Williams was 31 years old when he was found naked, dead in his own bathtub in Pimlico, just a few minutes walk away from Britain’s Houses of Parliament.
Speculation has been rife ever since his death in September 2010 about the circumstances surrounding his death. A Metropolitan Police investigation revealed predictably, though suspiciously, that Mr Williams’ death was “probably an accident”. This was despite an initial inquest concluding that his death was “unnatural and likely to have been criminally mediated.”

They came with knives, machetes and iron bars: Albanians attack German public school and heavily injure students
Eyewitnesses report that on Friday, the 28th of August, 2015, a mob of twenty to thirty Albanians attacked students of the public school “Hörde”, just as the students were leaving the front doors of the school.
In the days previous to the attack there were provocations and threats through the Albanian family clan. The police knew of the threats, but for some reason they felt no need to show more presence at the school.
The result of this abandonment is that several students were injured, one student suffering a serious head injury. A police car that coincidentally just happened to be in the neighborhood was able to arrest three men. But the majority of the attackers escaped.
The school has seen repeated attacks on German students at that school in the past week.

Gov. Kashim Shettima confirmed the attack in Baanu village during a meeting with the parents of the 219 girls abducted from a school in the region by the extremists last year. Thursday marked 500 days of captivity of the girls from a school in Chibok.

The company said the area was 1,450m (4,757 feet) beneath the surface and covered 100 sq km (39 sq miles).
It could hold as much as 30 trillion cubic feet of gas, or 5.5 billion barrels of oil equivalent, Eni said.
