Moscow taxi mounts pavement and injures people 'wearing Mexico colours' Pats' Brady sees retirement getting closer

Moscow taxi mounts pavement and injures people 'wearing Mexico colours'A taxi mounted the pavement near Moscow's Red Square on Saturday evening, ploughing into a group of people and injuring eight. Early reports say that Mexico fans are among the injured, as some of those involved were wearing Mexican team colours. Police said the driver likely lost control of the vehicle and has been detained. Two ambulances quickly arrived at the scene and seven people were taken to hospital.  There were no immediate details on the severity of the pedestrians' injuries, although a medical source told local media that none of them were grave. The driver, a citizen of Kyrgyzstan, said he did not act on purpose, according to Moscow authorities.  The taxi lost a bumper and toppled a parking sign during the incident Credit: Twitter Interfax media reported sources saying the driver may have been drunk. The accident took place on Ilinka Street, about 650 feet from Red Square and Moscow's famous GUM shopping arcade. Russia is currently hosting the World Cup and Moscow is one of 11 Russian cities where tournament games are being played.  Although it did not initially appear to be deliberate, it will hardly lessen fears of a terrorist threat during the World Cup.  Ambulances take injured people away in the aftermath of the accident Credit: Twitter Russia has earned the enmity of jihadi groups with its bombing campaign against the Islamic State and rebels in Syria, and Islamists have reportedly threatened fans at the tournament. Last year, 16 people were killed when a lone wolf attacker blew himself up in the metro in St Petersburg, the World Cup host city near where the England team is based for the tournament.  An ambulance parked near the damaged taxi that injured seven when it mounted the pavement  Credit: Jack Stubbs/Reuters Moscow has struggled for years with a simmering Islamist insurgency in the Caucasus region, where it fought two bloody wars in Chechnya.    Tens of thousands of police have been deployed to World Cup cities, along with national guardsmen and Cossacks, the traditional caste of horse warriors. The taxi is towed away from the scene of the crash, just a few hundred yards from the Kremlin Credit: Reuters Anti-aircraft missiles and drone-jamming devices have been protecting the skies near stadiums.  The influx of police into World Cup cities has been so great that police in at least one other city have worried crime could go up there.


Tom Brady says he can see retirement on the horizon, but he's still motivated to play in the NFL.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
