Group claims responsibility for missing Malaysian plane

Searchers have found no concrete evidence of what happened to the flight.  As you know, flight MH370 vanished early Saturday morning after departing Kuala Lumpur for Beijing.  The plane disappeared from radar less than an hour after takeoff.  No distress signals were sent.  No debris has been discovered.

(Photo: Flash 90/Sliman Khader) On February 25, there was a clash between Palestinian demonstrators and Israel police on the Temple Mount.  As news reports stated, twenty masked Palestinians threw stones and firecrackers at Israeli security forces from atop the Temple Mount and an Israeli police force entered the area to disperse the rioters using crowd dispersal means, including stun grenades. Three rioters were arrested on suspicion they threw rocks and firecrackers at security forces and two policemen were lightly hurt in the incident.

A terrorist group too violent for al-Qaeda?

Western observers are not sure of the group's size, but believe that it includes thousands of fighters, including many foreign jihadists.  Non-Syrians apparently constitute a majority of ISIS's elite fighters and are disproportionately represented in its leadership.  It gained control of the city of Raqqa in March 2013 and is active in a number of northern towns close to the Turkish border.  Wherever the group gains power, it is known for beheading enemies and oppressing the population with its rigid legalism.
