    Authorities arrested US Coast Guard Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson "last week on weapons and drugs charges." The motion for pretrial detention revealed horrific details like how intended "to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country." The federal prosecutors described him as a "domestic terrorist" and "white nationalist" who kept a hit list of journalists and Democratic lawmakers.

    India has signed a $777 million missile defense deal with Israel, Indian newspapers report. State-owned Israel Aerospace Industries  (IAI) will supply Long-Range Surface-to-Air Missiles (LR-SAM) for the Indian Navy. The deal is another milestone in Israel-India defense cooperation. Barak 8, as the missile defense system is known, is a joint venture of IAI and India's defense research agency DRDO. Bangalore-based company Bharat Electronics (BEL) will manufacture key components for the project, Israeli business daily Globes reported. Earlier this year, Barak 8 was successfully tested aboard an Indian navy ship, Indian media reports said.
