  • New York's top cop said that the man who attacked two rookie New York City cops with a hatchet Thursday before being shot to death had committed a terrorist act.

    "I'm very comfortable this was a terrorist attack," said Police Commissioner Bill Bratton at a press briefing Friday.

    Bratton also said that although suspect Zale Thompson was apparently “inspired” by terror groups, he was “self-radicalized.”

    "We at this time believe that he acted alone," said Bratton. "We would describe him as self-directed in his activities."

    Thompson, a 32-year-old from Queens, had “an extensive social media presence,” said Deputy Commissioner John Miller, and “the common thread that goes through these conversations is anti-Western, anti-government and in some cases anti-white.”

    Most recently, according to Miller, Thompson’s on-line activities including visiting websites focused on specific terror groups, like ISIS and al Qaeda, and looking at acts of violence that included beheadings.

    “It appears,” said Miller, “that this is something that he has been thinking about for some time and thinking about with more intensity over recent days.” Miller said it was apparently “the suspect’s intent” to commit a terrorist act.

    Federal officials told NBC News that “we are taking the incident seriously. We are running it to the ground. We are exploring all the options. But at this time the jury is still out as to motive.”

    A freelance photographer had asked four rookie officers to pose for a photo on a sidewalk in Jamaica, Queens on Thursday afternoon when Thompson rushed the group.

    Minutes before the attack, the bearded suspect was seen on a nearby street corner crouching down to take the weapon out of backpack before he charged and began swinging the hatchet with a two-handed grip.

    He wounded one officer in the arm and hit another in the back of the head before the other officers shot and killed him.

    "Those officers exhibited extraordinary bravery and skill in not only taking down an individual who was intent on killing them but also rendering first aid immediately to their fallen comrade," said Commissioner Bratton.

    The officer with the head wound is in serious but stable condition at a local hospital, while the officer with the arm wound is due to be released from the hospital. A female bystander who was hit in the back with a stray bullet is also in the hospital in TK condition.

    Detectives say Thompson was still holding the hatchet when he was pronounced dead. The attack -- and the shooting -- happened in less than 10 seconds, Bratton said.

    Police obtained a warrant to search Thompson's computer for clues about the assault. The search indicated he was a convert to Islam and included references to injustices in American society and oppression abroad but offered no clear evidence of any affiliation with terror groups, police said.

    Buffett spent $10.9 billion amassing a stake in IBM in 2011 for about $170 a share and has since added more. The investment was a departure for the billionaire, who has long said that he avoided buying technology stocks for Berkshire Hathaway Inc. because it was hard for him to understand their business plans and forecast their prospects.

    In April, he told CNBC that he stood by his pick and wasn’t surprised by IBM’s revenue decline in the first quarter. He didn’t respond to a message left with an assistant today seeking comment on IBM’s latest results.

  • Man attacks New York police officers with a hatchet
    A man charged at four New York police officers with a metal hatchet Thursday, hitting two of them at a time of high alert for authorities concerned they might be targeted in the United States and Canada.
    The suspect was hiding behind a bus shelter as if he was waiting to attack the officers, according to a law enforcement official, who said it almost appeared as if he was stalking them. The officers were posing for a photo when the man pounced, police Commissioner Bill Bratton said.
    He struck one officer in the right arm and another in the head, according to the commissioner. The two officers who weren't hit then shot at and killed the attacker.
    The law enforcement official identified the suspect as Zale H. Thompson, who had a criminal record in California and had been discharged from the Navy for misconduct, according to the source.
    The police officer who was struck in the head remains in critical but stable condition. The other officer, who is 24, was struck in the arm and was expected to be released soon.
    A 29-year-old bystander who was struck by a bullet in the lower back was also taken to a hospital. Her condition was not known.
    Authorities are looking to see if the unprovoked attack, in the New York borough of Queens, is tied to recent calls by radicals to attack military and police officers, law enforcement officials say.

    Asked about a possible connection to terrorism, Bratton said, "There is nothing we know as of this time that would indicate that were the case. I think certainly the heightened concern is relative to that type of assault based on what just happened in Canada."
    On Wednesday, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was shot and killed as he stood guard at Canada's National War Memorial before shots erupted in the halls of the country's Parliament minutes later.
    The Ottawa gunman had "connections" to jihadists in Canada who shared a radical Islamist ideology, including at least one who went overseas to fight in Syria, multiple U.S. sources told CNN on Thursday.
    And on Monday, another Canadian soldier -- this one in Quebec -- was run over and killed by another man who the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's Martine Fontaine said had been "radicalized."
    New York put their officers on alert following Thursday's attack, urging them to "maintain a heightened level of awareness against random attacks," several law enforcement officials said.
    It's not the only city so affected. Washington's Metropolitan Police Department has also "increased security levels and visibility, so the public should expect to see an enhanced presence of officers in light of the Canada and New York attacks, spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump told CNN.

  • Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the slain gunman in Wednesday’s shooting at the Ottawa War Memorial and Parliament Buildings, had a criminal record in Quebec and British Columbia.

    Cpl. Nathan Cirillo dies of wounds, gunman also shot dead
    Court documents obtained by CBC News show that Zehaf-Bibeau pleaded guilty to charges including drug possession and robbery.

    Zehaf-Bibeau, a Canadian born in 1982, was charged with drug possession in 2004.

    A police officer secures the scene of a shooting on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Oct. 22, 2014. Nearby, police vehicles surround the National War Memorial after Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a reservist on duty Wednesday, was fatally wounded in a brazen attack.

    He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 60 days in jail.

    Zehaf-Bibeau was in trouble with the law again in 2011, this time in British Columbia.

    Following a robbery in Vancouver, Zehaf-Bibeau was charged with robbery and uttering threats. He was found guilty of the lesser charge of uttering threats and sentenced to one day in jail, with credit for 66 days already served, according to court documents.

    Quebec court documents from 2004 show Zehaf-Bibeau lived in Montreal at the time, in the north-end neighbourhood of Villeray.

    CBC News in Montreal went to the address listed on the court documents. Neighbours said Zehaf-Bibeau had not lived there for years.

    According to Radio-Canada, Zehaf-Bibeau's mother, Susan Bibeau, still lives in Montreal and works for the federal government. She was married to Zehaf Bulgasem, with a divorce finalized in 1999.

    Zehaf-Bibeau was raised in Laval, just north of Montreal. Neighbours told CBC they remember Zehaf-Bibeau as a sweet boy, and are in shock at the news.

  • Apple issues security warning for iCloud

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Apple has posted a new security warning for users of its iCloud online storage service amid reports of a concerted effort to steal passwords and other data from people who use the popular service in China.

    "We're aware of intermittent organized network attacks using insecure certificates to obtain user information, and we take this very seriously," the computer-maker said in a post Tuesday on its support website. The post said Apple's own servers have not been compromised.

    Apple's post did not mention China or provide any details on the attacks. But several news outlets reported Tuesday that some Chinese Internet users have begun seeing warnings that indicate they had been diverted to an unauthorized website when they attempted to sign into their iCloud accounts.
