The message referred to a bomb on the plane, a source with knowledge of the investigation told Reuters. The 207 passengers and 11 crew members disembarked the Boeing 767-330 at Shannon airport at 2.15pm local time, according to Jim Molloy, a representative of Ireland’s police force.

Geothermanl plant flooded in HawaiiThis year, Kapalua Bay Beach on Maui topped a closely watched list as the country’s best beach.

But Hawaii also tops another not-so-glamourous list, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration—as the state with the most expensive electricity prices.

But not for long: In 2015, Hawaii’s Gov. David Ige signed the country’s first state law mandating 100 percent of its electricity come from renewable energy sources by the year 2045. One such renewable is geothermal. But the very thing that makes geothermal an attractive source of clean energy in Hawaii just shut down the only geothermal power plant in the state—the Kīlauea volcano.

Trump calls for Russia to be reinstated at G7

Donald Trump has called for Russia to be readmitted to the G7 club of world leaders, opening up a new rift with Europe at the start of an acrimonious summit in Québec.

The US president argued that Russia’s suspension from the former G8, imposed in 2014 after its annexation of Crimea, should be reversed for pragmatic reasons.

It marks a dramatic break from the position of Washington’s main European allies and parts of Trump’s own administration, who insist Moscow must abide by a peace accord in Ukraine before normal relations are resumed.
