Paris attacks trial: accused given last chance to speak before sentencing | Paris attacks

The sole surviving member of a cell alleged to have carried out the November 2015 terrorist bombings and shootings across Paris insisted he was not a killer, as the nine-month trial drew to a close. “I’ve made mistakes, but I’m not an assassin. I’m not a killer. If you convict me for murder you will be committing an injustice,” Salah Abdeslam told the special court in Paris on Monday. “My first words are for the victims. I have already said sorry. Some of you will say I am insincere, that this is a strategy … as if apologies could be insincere given so much suffering,” Abdeslam, 32, added. The 14 men in the dock accused of involvement in the jihadi attacks were given a last chance to speak before sentencing on Monday. Salah Abdeslam.

Tampa Bay Lightning denied three-peat by Colorado Avalanche but adamant 'it's not the end of our run'

TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Lightning fell short of the first Stanley Cup three-peat since 1983 — but they don’t believe their dynasty has crumbled. “Who said we’re done?” Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said after his team’s 2-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final on Sunday night. “This core is here. We’ve battled. We’ve been through everything you can think of and, for the most part, we’ve found a way to come out on top.” The Avalanche captured their first Stanley Cup since 2001 with the victory. They were favored to win the Cup as the playoffs began as well as to win this series. “It’s not like we lost to some powder puff,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. “That’s a baller team over there. We never had home ice. We played all these star-studded teams. They found a way. We just ran into one more brick wall, and we just couldn’t get through this one.” 2 Related Cooper agreed with Stamkos that the Lightning’s run didn’t end with the Avalanche. In

STATEN ISLAND (WABC) — A ShopRite employee is under arrest for attacking former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani on Staten Island on Sunday. Police say Daniel Gill, 39, slapped Giuliani on the back while he was handing out flyers at the store on 3010 Veterans Road on Staten Island.

Giuliani was at the ShopRite handing out flyers and taking pictures with people supoorting his son, Andrew Giuliani’s run for governor. His son was not at the store and was campaigning elsewhere. Andrew Giuliani released a statement saying, “Innocent people are attacked in today’s New York all of the time. This particular incident hit very close to home. The assault on my father, America’s Mayor, was over politics. We will not be intimidated by left wing attacks. As governor I will stand up for law and order so that New Yorkers feel safe again. This message has resonates

Avalanche vs. Lightning score Stanley Cup Final Game 6: Colorado wins 2-1 for team's third championship

The Colorado Avalanche are Stanley Cup champions. The Avalanche went into a fired up Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla., for Game 6 and left with a 2-1 win — and a very large piece of hardware. Colorado ended Tampa Bay’s run of back-to-back Stanley Cups and captured its third championship in franchise history. The Lightning jumped out to an early 1-0 lead, thanks to a goal from captain Steven Stamkos. However, the Avalanche took over the game from there. Colorado dominated the second period and was rewarded with goals from Nathan MacKinnon and Artturi Lehkonen. The Avs took a 2-1 lead into the locker room and shut down the Lightning from there. Colorado completely smothered Tampa Bay in the third period. The Lightning didn’t get a shot on Darcy Kuemper until there were roughly 10 minutes remaining in regulation. Not content to sit back and wait for the clock to tick down, the Avs remained aggressive in the final 20 minutes, and that made life incredibly difficult for the Lightning. Even

New York's new law on body armor would not apply to Buffalo shooter's vest

NEW You can now listen to Fox News articles! New York’s new law prohibiting the sale of bullet-resistant vests to most civilians does not apply to the body armor worn by the man who fatally shot 10 people at a supermarket in Buffalo last month. Payton Gendron wore a steel-plated vest during the killings on May 14. The armor protected him from a store security guard who fired a handgun round in an effort to stop the attack.

Swiss National Bank hikes rates by half a point, franc surges

The Swiss National Bank raised its policy interest rate for the first time in 15 years on Thursday, joining other central banks in tightening monetary policy to fight resurgent inflation and sending the safe-haven franc sharply higher. The central bank increased its policy rate to -0.25% from the -0.75% level it has deployed since 2015. The hike was the first increase by the SNB since September 2007. The move followed a 0.75% rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve on Wednesday while the European Central Bank signaled last week it would raise its rates in July to check surging inflation in the eurozone which hit 8.1% last month. “The tighter monetary policy is aimed at preventing inflation from spreading more broadly to goods and services in Switzerland. It cannot be ruled out that further increases in the SNB policy rate will be necessary in the foreseeable future to stabilize inflation in the range consistent with price stability over the medium term,” it said in a statement. “T
