A Moscow court today sentenced Paul Whelan, a former US Marine, to 16 years in prison on allegations of spying in Russia. The case has since caused tension in as far as Russia and American relations are concerned. Judge Andrei Suvorov, in his ruling, stated that the 50-year-old former military man will serve his sentence in a maximum-security prison.
A man stormed a hospital and opened fire in a hospital in Ostrava, Czech Republic, and killed six people before fleeing and committing suicide on Tuesday. This is the worst attack in the country since 2015, when another gunman shot eight people, and was later killed in a restaurant in the southeastern city of Uhersky Brod. It is not yet known what provoked and angered the man to the extent of carrying out such an inhuman attack.
