Nearly six months after Islamist attacks in and around Paris that left 17 people dead in January, France may have suffered another "terrorist attack" Friday morning after a man carrying an Islamist flag beheaded one person and injured several others at a gas factory in Grenoble, eastern France.

"According to the initial findings of the enquiry, one or several individuals on board a vehicle drove into the factory. An explosion then took place," said one source to the AFP. more >>
HTC has been doing everything it can in order to regain the Android fans and consumers it lost to competitors in recent years. However, its recent development and marketing decisions have been proven to be somewhat off-mark.
When it announced the HTC One M9, everyone expected something that could rival Samsung's Galaxy S6, just what the Taiwanese manufacturer has done with its earlier flagships. Unfortunately, HTC launched a sub-par flagship whose specs are similar to that of the previous generation.

He added: "It makes me think of people, managers, businessmen who call themselves Christian and they manufacture weapons. That leads to a bit of distrust, doesn't it?" more >>
A British preacher from Belfast who's facing prosecution for calling Islam "satanic" and "spawn of the devil" has said that he's willing to go to jail if it's necessary. Other British churches have meanwhile also expressed concerns they might be targeted for their beliefs.
Pastor James McConnell of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in north Belfast has said that he will plead not guilty to the charge of making a "grossly offensive" statement for his comments in 2014 which were broadcasted online.
Pope Francis has spent time praying before the Shroud of Turin in a two-day visit to the city this weekend, joining hundreds of thousands who in the past two months have stopped to pay their respects to what some believe is the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
Although the Vatican has never publicly declared whether it considers the shroud an actual relic belonging to Jesus, Francis told the audience at mass in Turin that the cloth is an "icon of love."
