South Korea police say they may have found serial killerSouth Korean police said Thursday that they have found a suspect thought to be an infamous serial killer wanted for the slaying of nine women some 30 years ago.

Ban said the technological improvement of DNA analysis allowed authorities to extract DNA samples from evidence that wasn't possible at the time of the cases.

Women’s March Dismisses New Board Member amid Backlash over Statements Comparing ISIS to U.S. Military

Women’s March Dismisses New Board Member amid Backlash over Statements Comparing ISIS to U.S. MilitaryZahra Billoo, who joined the board of the Women's March just several days ago, announced on her Twitter feed Thursday morning that she has been voted off the board.Billoo has a history of controversial statements on Twitter, in which she has compared the U.S. and Israeli militaries to ISIS and Nazis, once even asserting that the FBI recruits "mentally ill" people to join ISIS.The Women's March has not released a statement explaining the justification for her dismissal as of this writing.However, Billoo asserted in a tweet thread that she was voted out as a result of an "Islamophobic smear campaign led by the usual antagonists, who have long targeted me, my colleagues, and anyone else who dares speak out in defense of Palestinian human rights and the right to self determination."Addressing the controversy over her tweets, she wrote "In looking at the tweets in question, I acknowledge that I wrote passionately. While I may have phrased some of my content differently today, I stand by my words."> In looking at the tweets in question, I acknowledge that I wrote passionately. While I may have phrased some of my content differently today, I stand by my words. 15/> > -- Zahra Billoo (@ZahraBilloo) September 19, 2019Billoo stated on Facebook in 2017 that she would not go to see the movie "Wonder Woman" because of the participation of actress Gal Gadot, who served in the Israeli Defense Forces. She justified her stance by saying she would similarly not see a movie in which the lead actress was proud of being a member of ISIS, al-Qaeda, or the U.S. military.In a 2014 post on Twitter, Billoo said she was opposed to "all terrorism, including all that regularly committed by the US military and Al Qaeda, the Israeli Defense Forces and ISIS.”Billoo and other new members were hired to replace three former Women's March leaders dogged by allegations of anti-Semitism. Two of these members, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour, have drawn fire for their support of Louis Farrakhan, the anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam.

Elizabeth Warren’s Rivals Start to Turn on Her

Elizabeth Warren’s Rivals Start to Turn on HerHeidi Gutman/GettySen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has mostly been coasting to her position atop the 2020 Democratic primary field, often dodging the scrums other candidates have engaged in on the trail and the debate stage. But as she’s risen, her opponents have begun to notice. And this week, several of them have started to test out attack lines against her.On Thursday, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg accused Warren of dodging questions about potential tax increases that could come with instituting a Medicare for All healthcare system, which Warren supports. “You know, Senator Warren is known for being straightforward and was extremely evasive when asked that question, and we’ve seen that repeatedly,” Buttigieg told CNN in an interview. “I think that if you are proud of your plan and it’s the right plan, you should defend it in a straight forward terms. And I think it’s puzzling that when everybody knows the answer to that question of whether her plan and Senator Sanders’ plan will raise middle class taxes is yes. Why you wouldn’t just say so, and then explain why you think that’s the better way forward?”Warren, in recent debates, has rejected the premise of questions about whether middle class tax will be part of a Medicare for All health care system, by stressing that overall costs would go down for individual consumers since they would no longer be paying high costs for coverage. Buttigieg’s campaign, which came out with a “Medicare for All Who Want It” proposal, said that his plan could be paid for with higher corporate taxes but didn’t get into much more detail. Warren’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But Buttigieg wasn’t alone in taking a shot at Warren. He merely offered the most direct one. During a call with reporters on Thursday morning, Sen. Kamala Harris' campaign (D-CA) appeared to knock Warren for transferring money from her Senate campaign prior to her presidential outfit. And Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), who has attempted to run in a more moderate lane in the primary, continued her derision of plans like Medicare for All and free college during a visit to the Midwest. “We’ve got a lot of great people running, but some of these ideas are better left in the college faculty lounge,” Klobuchar said in Michigan on Thursday, according to local reports. “I’m a common sense person whose always governed by that.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
