Relatives of the Afghan family killed by the US drone strike that took the lives of an innocent aid worker and nine other people, including seven children, say they want compensation, and resettlement in the US or another safe country. Zemari Ahmadi, 43, died in the blast and was his family's only breadwinner. He worked for the US-based aid group Nutrition and Education International, and U.S. officials acknowledge he did not appear to be connected to ISIS-K terrorists. His fatal mistake, it appeared, was driving a white 1996 Toyota Corolla similar to one intelligence sources claimed was being driven by a known terrorist. Ahmadi's brother Emal, 32, who was just feet away from the remains of the car after the blast, said: 'We didn't have any money to bury our relatives. We had to borrow funds.' And while he said he is 'happy' the Pentagon has acknowledged the miscalculations that led to his brother's death, 'forgiveness' is too strong a word, as reported by The Post.

Cops have been made aware of the photo and are investigating as they hunt for Laundrie in the nearby Sarasota County wildlife refuge. Laundrie was reported missing by his family's attorney and his family said they haven't seen the 23-year-old since Tuesday.

REVEALED: How Iran's top nuclear scientist was assassinated by a killer AI machine gun that allowed sniper based 1,000 miles away to fire 15 bullets after disguised spy car had pinpointed his location
Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, 62, (top right) dubbed the 'father' of Iran's illegal atomic program, was ambushed November 27 while driving to his home in Absard, near Tehran. New details emerged in a New York Times report, based on interviews with American, Israeli and Iranian officials. Fakhrizadeh is said to have been killed by a Mossad sniper who pulled the trigger from an undisclosed location thousands of miles away via satellite. The gun which fired the fatal shots was positioned in a pickup truck lying in wait for his car (bottom right the aftermath). There was also a second disguised spy car positioned three-quarters of a mile earlier along the route in a spot where Fakhrizadeh's car would make a U-turn (map on left). Cameras in this vehicle positively identified Fakhrizadeh and his position in the car sending this information back to the remote sniper. AI technology was programmed to compensate for 1.6 second delay between the camera capturing the images and the trigger being pulled. The entire ambush was over within one minute of the first round being fired.

Biden's warning to China: USS Wyoming test launches Trident II nuclear missiles off Cape Canaveral after Beijing warned of war risk over AUKUS submarine pact
The US Navy successfully conducted a scheduled two-missile test launch of un-armed life-extended Trident D5LE nuclear missiles from the USS Wyoming on Friday off Cape Canaveral. The Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine completed the test, which was part of a Demonstration and Shakedown Operation, designated DASO-31, which will allow the submarines to be deployed. The ballistic missile submarines primarily serve as deterrence and are scheduled for such test years in advance. The Navy stated the tests are scheduled years in advance and 'not conducted in response to any ongoing world events, nor as a demonstration of power.' The test of the nuclear deterrence submarines comes as the US penned a deal with Australia to partner with the UK to help them build nuclear-powered submarines. The move will hugely expand Australian military capability in the Indo-Pacific region to counter China, who will soon have the largest fleet of submarines in the world.

When Central Park was known as 'Forgotten Men's Gulch': As NYC grapples with its latest homeless crisis, stark images show how the city's most beautiful open space was turned into a shantytown during the Great Depression
Photographs from the Great Depression show how desperate New Yorkers were forced to take shelter on the streets in makeshift shacks made from scraps of tar, wood, cardboard and other found objects. Homeless encampments, known as 'Hoovervilles' cropped up across the United States as millions of people lost their jobs and homes. They were named after President Herbert Hoover who was held responsible for the economic crises. The most famous 'Hooverville' settled in the 'hellscape' dust bowl of a former reservoir in Central Park that had been drained (left, top and bottom). It was known to locals as 'Forgotten Men's Gulch' or 'Hoover Valley' and stood in the shadow of New York City's most swanky addresses. Over time, the crude homeless encampments turned into complex compounds that operated like mini cities. 'Camp Thomas Paine' in the Upper West Side elected a leader, built a mess hall, provided a club room for socializing and a kept their pets in a corral (bottom right). Some dwellings were constructed of brick and provided the comforts of home with beds, chairs, carpets, gardens and linoleum flooring. The largest outpost, known as 'Hardlucksville' had upwards of 80 shacks that housed 450 residents. Today, New York City continues to grapple with the highest rate of homelessness the city has experienced since the Great Depression.

In an unusual show of unity, senior members of the Royal Family have come together to share memories that reveal Prince Philip's domestic side - including his keen interest in the Hairy Bikers cookery shows, his playful affection for his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and how he turned barbecuing into an art form. As the Duke of Cambridge affectionately puts it: 'I can safely say there's never been a case of food poisoning in the family that's attributed to the Duke of Edinburgh.' The documentary, originally conceived to mark Philip's 100th birthday in June, has been rebranded as a tribute programme, with contributions from 14 members of the Royal Family, including Prince Harry and the beleaguered Prince Andrew.
