Stephen Paddock, the gunman who killed 58 people and injured more than 500 in Las Vegas on Sunday, set up a number of cameras in and around his hotel suite. Two cameras in the hallway and one in the peephole allowed him to see if "law enforcement or security" were approaching, police said. Officers are still trying to determine why Paddock, 64, opened fire on a concert from the Mandalay Bay Hotel. However, they do know there was a high degree of planning. The authorities in Las Vegas revised the death toll down from 59 on Tuesday evening, saying that one of the bodies was that of the gunman. Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters: "This individual was pre-meditated. Obviously pre-meditated, the fact that he had the type of weaponry and the amount of weaponry in that room. "It was pre-planned extensively and I'm pretty sure he evaluated everything he did in his actions." Undersheriff Kevin McMahill suggested the attack may have stopped when Paddock was disturbed, shooting a security guard. The shooting - the worst in modern US history - has sparked debate over US gun laws, but President Donald Trump has said the discussion over what, if anything, needs to be done was "not for now". He earlier described Paddock as "a sick man, a demented man". But a senior US homeland security official, speaking on condition of anonymity to news agency Reuters, said there was "no evidence" of "mental illness or brain damage". Nor have police found links to any foreign or domestic terrorist organisations. Paddock, who appears to have killed himself before police stormed his hotel room, had no criminal record and was not known to police. However, police found 23 guns in Paddock's hotel room, as well as firearms and explosives at his home. In total, across three locations, 47 firearms have been recovered, officials said.Photos from the hotel room of guns used in the attack have been obtained by Boston 25 News. Police still consider the woman thought to have been his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, "a person of interest", he said, adding they were "in conversation". Ms Danley had been in the Philippines, but flew out of the country, the Philippine immigration bureau spokeswoman told reporters and has now arrived in Los Angeles. The shooting has prompted calls for reform to US gun laws. But Mr Trump - who has been backed by the National Rifle Association, and spoke often of protecting the Second Amendment during his campaign - has tried to steer clear of leaning too far either way. After visiting Puerto Rico on Tuesday, he said "perhaps that [time] will come" for a debate. Earlier, he had said: "We'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by." Mr Trump, whose position on gun control has changed over the years, gave no further detail. Mr Trump also declined to call the attack domestic terrorism.

A federal judge has put a nationwide block on US President Donald Trump's week-old executive order temporarily barring refugees and nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. The temporary restraining order issued by US District Judge James Robart in Seattle on Friday will remain valid nationwide pending a full review of a complaint by Washington attorney general Bob Ferguson. "The constitution prevailed today," Ferguson said, describing the judge's decision as historic. "No one is above the law - not even the president."I said from the beginning it is not the loudest voice that prevails in a courtroom, it's the constitution," he added, pointing out that Robart was appointed by Republican president George W Bush. Friday's ruling was not the first to challenge the travel ban, but it was the most sweeping as it effectively vacated the main tenets of the order. Gillian Christensen, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security, said the agency does not comment on pending litigation. Ferguson said the order technically means that anyone with a valid visa must be allowed entry into the country by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The US state department is working with the Department of Homeland Security to work out how Friday's ruling affects its operations, a spokesman told a news agency, and will announce any changes affecting travellers as soon as information is available. The justice department made no immediate decision on an appeal but said in a statement it would determine its next steps after reviewing the written order. It was unclear, however, whether the Trump administration would mount a legal challenge or whether federal border agents would abide by the ruling. Source: Agencies
US President-elect Donald Trump said on Twitter Tuesday that he will hold a press conference on January 11. It would be Trump`s first official press conference since July 27, and his first as president-elect. He has done a handful of one-on-one interviews and has taken questions from reporters in more casual settings — including one occasion in Florida last week. The president-elect said in December he would hold a press conference before his inauguration to discuss potential conflict-of-interest issues surrounding his business interests and his incoming administration. It was unclear from Trump`s announcement what he would discuss during the January 11 affair. He described it only as a "general news conference." Trump made headlines during his last official appearance in front of reporters in July, when he made a direct appeal to Russia to dig up what he described as missing emails belonging to Hillary Clinton, his former Democratic presidential rival. Since then, the US has officially accused Russia of hacking Democratic organizations, and the Obama administration has leveled new sanctions against the Kremlin — including the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats from the US. Russian President Vladimir Putin responded by expressing hope for stronger ties to the US via the incoming Trump administration, a move that Trump has applauded.
Attackers dressed in Santa Claus suits opened fire inside a packed Istanbul nightclub shortly after midnight on New Year’s Day, killing at least 35 people and wounding dozens more, Turkish officials said.Gov. Vasip Sahin of Istanbul Province called it a terrorist attack.The attack occurred about 1:15 a.m. at the nightclub, Reina, where as many as 600 people were celebrating the New Year, officials said.Mr. Sahin said the attackers — initial reports said there had been as many as three — had fired on the police before heading inside the club.“One person first kills the police officer outside, and then a civilian,” the governor said. “Inside, he rained bullets brutally, mercilessly over innocent people who were there just to celebrate the New Year and have fun.”The club overlooks the Bosporus — which separates Europe and Asia — and some clubgoers jumped into the water in their panic over the attack.Mehmet Kocarslan, the owner, told the Hurriyet news site that there had been increased security measures for the past 10 days after American intelligence officials had warned about an attack. He said the attackers had used Kalashnikov rifles.Television footage showed dozens of ambulances rushing to the scene and people fleeing, some walking with difficulty, arm in arm.Hurriyet said three assailants in Santa costumes had opened fire at the security staff members at the gate and stormed in. NTV, a Turkish channel, said the police were still searching for the attackers.On the European side of Istanbul, the neighborhood is an international travel destination known for its food stalls and vibrant night life. The area is a mix of stone, brick and wooden buildings along pedestrian lanes.PhotoTurkey is still recovering from a failed coup attempt that began on July 15 in which at least 265 people were killed.Though the effort sputtered in a matter of hours, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan responded with a sweeping, monthslong crackdown targeting dissidents across Turkish society. In addition to arresting thousands of military personnel suspected of involvement in the coup, hundreds of thousands of civil servants, educational workers and journalists have been purged.The coup and the assassination of the Russian Ambassador Andrey G. Karlov in Ankara on Dec. 19 raised concerns that the country’s security establishment has grown ineffective. The internal turmoil also raised doubts about how well Turkey will be able to participate in international counterterrorism efforts, especially with regard to the Islamic State.In the wake of the crackdown, protests against Mr. Erdogan have led to frequent clashes between demonstrators and the police. And reports of targeted attacks against civilians after martial law was declared in July have revived painful memories of the political violence Turkey experienced in the 1970s and 1980s.

Two predecessors have visited Cuba, but Francis was the first pope to visit Holguin, capital of the province where the Castro brothers and leaders of Cuba, Fidel and Raul, grew up. He said a Mass for tens of thousands of people in sweltering heat. Sept. 21 was the day in 1953 when the Argentine pope said he first felt a calling from God. The then 17-year-old Jorge Mario Bergoglio was heading to meet friends for a picnic marking the start of spring in the southern hemisphere when he felt an urge to enter a church he was passing in Buenos Aires. It was there that he felt a strange pull. "I can't say what is was but it changed my life," he told one biographer. That took place on the feast of St. Matthew and the pope dedicated his Holguin homily to the Bible story of the conversion of the former tax collector who decided to follow Jesus Christ. Holguin is a center of Cuban music and the Mass was accompanied by lively Caribbean sounds. On nearly every block, posters welcoming the pontiff adorned doors and telephone poles, while bike-taxis and horse-drawn carriages traversed below the yellow-and-white flags of the Vatican, fluttering alongside Cuba's red, white, and blue. The government of President Raul Castro, who attended the Holguin Mass, had hoped the 78-year-old Francis would explicitly condemn the still-intact US economic embargo against Cuba before leaving on Tuesday for Washington. He has not done so yet but on arrival on Saturday, he did urge the old Cold War foes to deepen their detente after this year's restoration of relations, which the Vatican mediated. Critics of the one-party state want papal support for dissidents, some of whom have been rounded up and denied attendance at papal events. A Cuban human rights group said 50 to 60 government opponents had been arrested and several dozen more blocked in their homes by state security agents. The same happened when Pope John Paul visited in 1998 and Pope Benedict in 2012. "We estimate about 100 people affected by this preventive repression," said Elizardo Sanchez, who runs the Cuban Commission of Human Rights and National Reconciliation. During the first two days of his visit, Francis has stuck largely to spiritual messages in speeches, though he has also called for tolerance of different ideas. "Believer or non-believer, we believe in the pope!" said Yami Mendez, a retired schoolteacher in Holguin who is not a Catholic but, like most Cubans, holds Francis in high esteem. Climbing the steep road to a hilltop cross, Mendez cited benefits associated with Francis: the US diplomatic breakthrough, the release of more than 3,500 common prisoners, and the fresh paint and renovations at the places he will visit. In his first two days in Havana, the pope met both Castro brothers. But there was no encounter for dissidents. Three were hauled away on Sunday before he said Mass. Two prominent opponents, Miriam Leiva and Martha Beatriz Roque, said they were twice detained to stop them attending papal events. The Castro brothers, both educated by Jesuits, repressed the Church after the 1959 revolution but relaxed restrictions from the 1990s and have now seen three pontiffs visit them in less than two decades.
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says Islam is antithetical to the Constitution, and he doesn't believe that a Muslim should be elected president. Carson, a devout Christian, says a president's faith should matter to voters if it runs counter to the values and principles of America. Responding to a question during an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," he described the Islamic faith as inconsistent with the Constitution. "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation," Carson said. "I absolutely would not agree with that." He did not specify in what way Islam ran counter to constitutional principles. Carson's comments drew strong criticism from the country's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "To me this really means he is not qualified to be president of the United States," said the group's spokesman, Ibrahim Hooper. "You cannot hold these kinds of views and at the same time say you will represent all Americans, of all faiths and backgrounds." Hooper said the Constitution expressly forbids religious tests for those seeking public office and called for the repudiation of "these un-American comments." In a separate appearance on NBC, one of Carson's rivals for the GOP nomination, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, was asked whether he would have a problem with a Muslim in the White House. "The answer is, at the end of the day, you've got to go through the rigors, and people will look at everything. But, for me, the most important thing about being president is you have leadership skills, you know what you're doing and you can help fix this country and raise this country. Those are the qualifications that matter to me." Carson's comments came amid lingering fallout over Republican Donald Trump's refusal last week to take issue with a man during a campaign event who wrongly called President Barack Obama a Muslim and said Muslims are "a problem in this country." Also speaking on NBC on Sunday, Trump said that a Muslim in the White House is "something that could happen Some people have said it already happened, frankly." In multiple interviews Sunday, Trump tried to draw a distinction between all American Muslims and extremist Muslims in the U.S. and elsewhere. "I have friends that are Muslims they're great people, amazing people," Trump said on CNN's "State of the Union." "You have extremists Muslims that are in a class by themselves," Trump added. "It's a problem in this country it's a problem throughout this world You do have a problem with radical Muslims." GOP candidates have since been split over whether to criticize Trump, who has been a vocal skeptic of Obama's birthplace and faith. Obama is Christian. In the NBC interview, Carson said he believes that Obama was born in the U.S. and is Christian, saying he has "no reason to doubt" what the president says. Carson also made a distinction when it came to electing Muslims to Congress, calling it a "different story" from the presidency that "depends on who that Muslim is and what their policies are, just as it depends on what anybody else says." Congress has two Muslim members, Democratic Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota and Andre Carson of Indiana. "If there's somebody who's of any faith, but they say things, and their life has been consistent with things that will elevate this nation and make it possible for everybody to succeed, and bring peace and harmony, then I'm with them," Carson said.
