US missile hits Daesh bomber on the ground, sends vehicle somersaulting into the air and then exploding

DUBAI: This video captures the dramatic moment when the blast from a US missile striking a Daesh suicide bomber’s vehicle caused a second to be thrown in the air, before that too exploded, before it hit the ground.
The footage was captured by BBC Arabic reporter Feras Kilani who later posted the footage on his Twitter account and tweeted: “It appears to be the quickest way for a suicide car bomber to reach Heaven by exploding in the sky after US missile hit him near #kirkuk”
In a second tweet to one of his followers he then explained: “The missile hit the first car bomb which caused the explosion on the ground and push the second one up to the sky before it exploded as well.”
The tweet has already been “shared” and “liked” thousands of times. There is no information on who fired the missile, or how many casualties Daesh suffered in the blast.

EU expected to fine Google $5 bln over Android: Bloomberg

  • The EU antitrust enforcer has charged Google with using its dominant Android to marginalize rivals
  • EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager is expected to announce a record fine against Google

BRUSSELS: Alphabet Inc’s Google is expected to be fined a record 4.3 billion euros ($5.00 billion) by the European Union over its Android system, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.
Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai had a call with EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager late Tuesday for a meeting, Bloomberg reported citing a source.
The EU antitrust enforcer has charged Google with using its dominant Android to marginalize rivals following a three-year-long investigation — seen as the most important of three EU cases against the world’s most popular Internet search engine.
Google was not immediately available for comment.
Vestager will hold a news conference at 1100 GMT, the European Commission said, where she is expected to announce a record fine against Google.
The Commission said Vestager would speak on an antitrust case but did not provide details.
