HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Jon Krakauer, the best-selling author of "Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town," is headed to the titular town Wednesday to face angry critics who say his decision to focus on the small Montana city is unfair.
German police arrested four people on Wednesday, who were accused of belonging to a far-right "terror" organisation that acquired explosives for attacks on Muslims and refugee homes, federal prosecutors said. The early-morning swoops in five states occurred with the country already on edge after authorities last week said they foiled a planned Islamist attack by a German-Turkish couple armed with a pipe bomb and other weapons. They also came amid a rise in attacks on lodgings for asylum seekers as Germany takes in record numbers of people fleeing conflicts in the Middle East and Africa. The four suspects, three men and a 22-year-old woman identified only as Denise Vanessa G., are accused of starting a "far-right terrorist organisation" called Oldschool Society with a larger group of people last November.
