Edward Gallagher: Navy Seal chief found not guilty of killing IS teen
A US Navy Seal has been found not guilty of killing a young Islamic State group (IS) prisoner and other murder charges in a San Diego military court.
Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, 40, was accused of stabbing the injured teenager to death as well as randomly shooting Iraqi civilians.
He was convicted of posing with the 17-year-old's corpse, but acquitted of all other charges.
It comes after another Seal claimed he was the one who killed the prisoner.
Mr Gallagher, a decorated combat veteran who served eight tours, denied all the allegations against him.
14 Russian sailors killed in submarine fire
A fire broke out on one of the Russian navy's deep-sea research submersibles and toxic fumes from the blaze killed 14 sailors aboard, Russia's Defence Ministry said Tuesday, although it released few details about the disaster or the vessel involved.
The Defence Ministry did not say how many sailors were aboard the vessel during Monday's fire, whether there were any survivors, or if it was submerged at the time. But Russian media reported it was Russia's most secret submarine, a nuclear-powered vessel designed for sensitive missions at great ocean depths.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, who came under criticism for his handling of the Kursk nuclear submarine disaster in 2000 that killed 118 sailors, cancelled a scheduled appearance and immediately summoned Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu for a briefing on the blaze, which was under investigation.
