Incredible underground city found in Turkey

    An underground 18-storey city that was discovered over Tukey whether established In 1963. These stunning images show the underground 18-storey city discovered by chance by a man renovating his home. In 1963, a Turkish dad knocked down a wall in his basement, revealing a secret room which led to an underground tunnel that took him to the ancient city of Derinkuyu. Photos of the preserved city document how 20,000 people  including livestock and entire food supplies  could have lived 85m beneath the earth. Thought to have been created during the Byzantine era in 780-1180AD, the network of kitchens, stables, churches, tombs, wells, communal rooms and schools was most likely used as a bunker to protect inhabitants from the Arab–Byzantine wars. During this time, cave-like chapel...

Chilling bomb threat of man who plotted against Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth

    Twisted Donal Billings sent a chilling warning to police boasting that he would attack the Queen as she settled down to a banquet during a state visit to Ireland. The lone wolf terrorist told officers hours before the plush feast that he had trained mortars on Dublin Castle where the royal party were being entertained. And on the eve of the Queen’s visit, the warped 66-year-old planted a bomb on a bus bound for the city that would have caused horrific bloodshed had it not been intercepted by officers. Billings, who has no known links with dissident groups, was last night starting an eight and a half year sentence for the failed explosives plot and mortar threats. His terrifying haul of weapons and ammunition, which included a Czech-made pistol, pipe and timer, was put on d...

EU leaders start meeting after May returns to UK

    European Union leaders devoted just twenty minutes to discussing Brexit at a late night meeting in Brussels on Thursday, after Theresa May returned to London. May’s fellow leaders had been set to consider how best to tackle Britain’s departure from the 28-member bloc over a three-course dinner to which the prime minister had not been invited. But after talks about a series of other pressing issues, including the refugee crisis and ceasefire violations in eastern Ukraine, dragged on late into the night, the dinner was cancelled in favour of a brief discussion. May cancelled a planned press conference, instead making a few prepared remarks on camera about the Syrian crisis, before being whisked away to fly back to London. The prime minister refused to be drawn on her hopes f...
