Rome-Milan train service back after storm pummels Florence

ROME (AP) — The Italian state railways says service is back to normal on a key Rome-Florence line after a roof, ripped off by a whirlwind, toppled a power pylon.

The railway reported no more cancellations or delays Sunday after the power outage.

A thunderstorm, hail and fierce winds Saturday evening pummeled Florence, flooding basements and knocking down hundreds of trees. Italian state radio said the most serious of dozens of injuries was head trauma suffered by a teenager struck by a tree.

The downed electric line near Florence forced the railways to send some trains back to Rome, while other trains, which departed from Turin and Milan for Rome and Naples, went back to Milan.

Saturday began Italy’s big vacation month, August, just as another heat wave was predicted to grip Rome.


Chechen women allegedly bilk Islamic State recruiters

MOSCOW (AP) — Police in Russia’s province of Chechnya have opened a probe against three local women who have allegedly cheated the Islamic State group out of money.

Regional police spokesman Magomed Deniyev said that the women had allegedly created accounts on social networks to contact IS, according to a report by government daily Rossiyskaya Gazeta on Friday.

Deniyev said the women would claim they lacked money to make a trip to Syria and ask for funds, and then erase their accounts after receiving cash. Deniyev claimed the three women earned 200,000 rubles (about $3,300).

He said they would unlikely face any punishment for fraud since it would require IS to file a complaint.

Russian officials said more than 1,000 Russian nationals have joined IS.


Official: Top Burundi general assassinated in the capital

BUJUMBURA, Burundi (AP) — A presidential spokesman says a former Burundi intelligence chief has been killed in a drive-by shooting in the capital, Bujumbura.

Willy Nyamitwe told The Associated Press Sunday that Gen. Adolphe Nshimirimana, a key security ally of President Pierre Nkurunziza, was killed early Sunday when men in a car shot at him and his bodyguards while traveling in the Kamenge neighborhood.

Nyamitwe said the attackers also lobbed a grenade into Nshimirimana’s vehicle. He said the general later died from his wounds.

Bujumbura has been wracked by violence since April when it was revealed that the president would seek a third term.

Nshimirimana was widely seen as a key member of the president’s security team who helped to put down an attempted coup in May.

Nkurunziza won the July 21 presidential polls.


Police: Gunfire at Brooklyn backyard party injures 9

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say gunfire broke out at a backyard party in Brooklyn overnight, injuring nine people.

Sgt. Daniel Doody of the New York Police Department says the shooting happened at about 2:15 a.m. Sunday in the East New York section after an argument. He says nine people were taken to hospitals with gunshot wounds, but all their injuries are not life-threatening. He says four others were taken to hospitals with cuts and bruises from the melee.

He says the gunmen have not been arrested, and no additional information is available.

A witness tells The New York Post (http://bit.ly/1eLlOKJ) he was heading to the store when he heard more than five shots.

Faylo Alston says he saw partygoers lying on the ground until the shooting stopped, and then “everyone scattered.”
