Close to 200 Queen Murder Hornets in Wash. Nest Killed ‘In the Nick of Time,’ Scientist Says

WSDA A new Asian giant hornet ready to emerge

Scientists said they destroyed close to 200 queen murder hornets after discovering a large nest in Washington.

Officials with the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) announced in a press release on Tuesday that the nest they found late last month ultimately contained more than 500 Asian giant hornet specimens in various stages of development.

Among those included 76 queens, which had the potential to start a new colony over the next year, and 108 capped cells with pupae, which were believed to be pupae of new virgin queens, according to the press release.

There were also six combs, 776 cells, six unhatched eggs, 190 larvae, 112 workers and nine drones, which are also known as male hornets, the WSDA said.

“We got there just in the nick of time,” Sven-Erik Spichiger, an entomologist helping kill the murder hornets, said in

Prehistoric hunters weren’t all male. Women killed big game, new discovery suggests

But the discovery of a woman buried 9,000 years ago in the Andes Mountains with weapons and hunting tools, and an analysis of other burial sites in the Americas challenges this widely accepted division of labor in hunter-gatherer society.

The woman, thought to be between 17 and 19 years old when she died, was buried with items that suggested she hunted big-game animals by spear throwing — stone projectile points for felling large animals, a knife and flakes of rock for removing internal organs, and tools for scraping and tanning hides.

“Labor practices among recent hunter-gatherer societies are highly gendered, which might lead some to believe that sexist inequalities in things like pay or rank are somehow ‘natural,'” said lead study author Randy Haas, an assistant professor of anthropology at University of California, Davis, in a news release.

“But it’s now clear that sexual division of labor was fundamentally different … Read More

At Least 19 People Are Killed In Attack On Kabul University

Updated at 1:55 p.m. ET

Gunmen disguised as policemen stormed Kabul University in the Afghan capital in an hours-long assault on Monday, killing at least 19 people and wounding 22 more, including students who jumped out of windows to flee the attackers. It is the second attack on a learning center in Kabul in recent days, and comes amid a spike in violence across the country.

The assault coincided with a book fair that attracted senior Afghan and Iranian officials to the sprawling campus, including Iranian Ambassador Bahador Aminian. It was not immediately clear whether any of the officials were killed or wounded.

But it seems students were targeted in the well-coordinated attack. A 22-year-old public administration student said she heard a deafening blast. Then, “I saw with my own eyes, there were a lot of attackers in police uniforms,” said Nilofer Farahmand.

She says the assailants rushed to the

‘Act of terror’: At least 22 killed in Kabul University attack | Asia

At least 22 people were killed and 22 other wounded when gunmen stormed Kabul University in a brutal, hours-long assault that saw students left in pools of blood in their classrooms.

The attack in Afghanistan’s capital on Monday, claimed by the the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL, ISIS) group, came as violence surged across the country.

It was also the second time in less than two weeks that an educational institution was targeted in the capital.

On Tuesday, the country’s first Vice President Amrullah Saleh pointed finger of blame on the Taliban, which rejected his claims.

Saleh told local media that there are many evidences to prove his claim, but Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said it was an attempt by Saleh to defame the armed group, which signed an agreement with the US in February.

Survivors described horrific scenes following the incident that unfolded around 11am (0530 GMT)

Afghans Mourn Those Killed in Horrific ISIS University Attack

KABUL, Afghanistan — Afghanistan declared a national day of mourning Tuesday to honor the 22 people killed in a horrific attack a day earlier on Kabul University, which was claimed by the Islamic State group. Most of those killed were students and another 22 people were injured, some of them critically.

Monday’s brutal, hours-long assault was the second attack on an educational institution in the Afghan capital in as many weeks amid a soaring rise in violence and chaos across Afghanistan, even as Taliban insurgents and government negotiators hold peace talks in the Gulf state of Qatar.

The Islamic State affiliate also claimed the earlier attack on Oct. 24 that killed 24 young students. The attack occurred in the mostly Shiite neighborhood of Dasht-e-Barchi.

The ISIS affiliate has declared war on the country’s minority Shiites and has claimed a number of vicious attacks since emerging in eastern Afghanistan in 2014.

Afghanistan Mourns After 22 Killed In University Attack

Stunned students demonstrated outside Kabul University on Tuesday after at least 22 people were killed in a brutal, on-campus attack claimed by the Islamic State group.

Holding banners stating: “Stop Killing Us”, the small gathering came as Afghanistan observed a national day of mourning and the first funerals were expected.
