Egypt mosque attack: At least 235 killed as
Militants have killed at least 235 people and wounded scores more at a mosque in Egypt, detonating a bomb and shooting at fleeing worshippers and ambulances After one of the deadliest attacks in the north Sinai region's Islamist insurgency, state media showed images of bloodied victims and bodies covered in blankets inside the Al Rawdah mosque. No group claimed immediate responsibility for Friday's attack, but since 2014 Egyptian security forces have battled a stubborn Islamic State affiliate in the north of the mainly desert Sinai, where militants have killed hundreds of police and soldiers. "They were shooting at people as they left the mosque," a local resident whose relatives were at the scene said. "They were shooting at the ambulances too." President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, a former armed forces commander who presents himself as a bulwark against Islamist militants, convened an emergency meeting with his defence and interior ministers and intelligence chief soon after the attack. The government also declared three days of mourning. The attack was the deadliest yet in the region Credit: Rassad News N Arabiya news channel and some local sources said some of the worshippers were sufis who hardliners such as Islamic State regard as apostates because they revere saints and shrines, which for Islamists is tantamount to idolatry. Militants have mostly targeted security forces in their attacks since bloodshed in the Sinai worsened after 2013 when Sisi, then an armed forces commander, led the overthrow of President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood. Egyptians gather outside the mosque, which is about 25 miles west of the North Sinai capital of El-Arish Credit: AFP But jihadists have also targeted local Sinai tribes that are working with the armed forces, branding them traitors for cooperating with the army and police. In July this year, at least 23 soldiers were killed when suicide car bombs hit two military checkpoints in the Sinai, an attack claimed by Islamic State. Friday's attack happened in Bir al-Abed, west of the city of El Arish Militants have tried to expand beyond the largely barren, desert Sinai Peninsula into Egypt's heavily populated mainland, hitting Coptic Christian churches and pilgrims. In May, gunmen attacked a Coptic group travelling to a monastery in southern Egypt, killing 29.

Russia's New Stealth Torpedoes Have a
This is what U.S. ship captains will scream too late, if Russia has its way. Russia is promising to develop smart mini-torpedoes that are noiseless, leave no wake—and creep through the water at two to three miles per hour. The project is still in the conceptual stage, Aliyev told Russian news agency RIA Novosti [Google English translation here].

Russia’s New Navy Plan: More Submarines,
The Kremlin’s new state armament plan, which will run from 2018-2027, is shifting its focus away from the Russian Navy. Compared to other branches of the Russian military, the navy will sink to last place in securing a piece of the defense budget. Instead of dreams of building massive 14,000-ton Leader-class nuclear-powered destroyers or 100,000-ton aircraft carriers, the Russian Navy will continue to focus on its potent submarine fleet and smaller surface combatants—and equipping those vessels with Kalibr long-range cruise missiles.
