Mid-Week Post

Wrapping up the day.

What was this man doing in Canada?

A Lebanese-born Canadian man on the FBI's most wanted list of terror suspects is accused of using a fake passport in an attempt to enter Israel and conduct a bombing on behalf of the Islamic militant group Hezbollah, according to an indictment unsealed in U.S. federal court in Detroit.

Oh goody:

Airlines are being warned by the government that terrorists are considering surgically hiding bombs inside humans to evade airport security. As a result, travellers may find themselves subjected to more scrutiny when flying in the heart of summer vacation season, especially to the U.S. from abroad.

And the UN gave North Korea the chairman position for the disarmament conference:

The founder of Pakistan's nuclear bomb program claims the North Korean government bribed top military officials in Pakistan to obtain access to sensitive nuclear technology in the late 1990s, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Abdul Qadeer Khan made available documents that he said supported his claim that he transferred more than $3 million in payments by North Korea to senior officers in the Pakistani military, the newspaper said on its website. Khan said the Pakistani military later approved his sharing of technical know-how and equipment with North Korean scientists.

It's as bad as the IMF giving China a top post.

And now, the lighter vein of things: monkey helpers, macaque self-portraits and an extreme close-up.
