Air Canada lands safely in Tel Aviv after go-around for rockets

Air Canada jetAn Air Canada flight from Toronto to Tel Aviv aborted its first landing attempt Friday after Hamas fired several rockets toward Ben Gurion International Airport.

But the Boeing 767-300 landed safely 10 minutes after the go-around. The airline plans to continue flying to Israel.  Meanwhile, Lufthansa, a holdout on returning flights to Tel Aviv, said it would resume Saturday.

Five miles before landing, Air Canada's Boeing 767-300 flight 84 was advised by local air-traffic controllers to perform a standard go-around "until airspace conditions could be confirmed as safe for landing," said Isabelle Arthur, an airline spokeswoman. The plane landed safely at 12:07 p.m. and return flight 85 departed for Toronto at 1:59 p.m., Arthur said.

US-backed militia runs amok in Afghanistan

Afghans run amokBefore dawn on June 1, a group of U.S. special forces and Afghan army commandos arrived by helicopter to the east of Alizai, a farming hamlet in Andar district in Taliban-controlled territory in central Afghanistan. They moved from house to house, arresting any fighting-age men they found, while the local Taliban fighters, who had been sleeping in a mosque at the other end of the village, fled without a fight.

By sunrise, the soldiers had gathered more than 100 men in the yard of a house belonging to a local man named Hajji Badruddin. As is typical in rural Afghanistan, the house had two large adjoining courtyards fenced in by high mud walls. The villagers were kept in one yard, while in the next yard the Americans and Afghan commandos had set up their four-wheeled ATVs, other vehicles and equipment.
