Asked if the police were searching for two more bombs, Wallace said: “We are trying to roll up a network. This is not a lone individual. We have to close down every lead we find. We have to follow it up and make sure we make the arrests and the searches that we need to do.”

Launched as the technology giant's comeback phone after the disastrous roll-out of the fire-prone Note 7 handset, the phone allows users to unlock the device merely by pointing the camera at their unique iris patterns.

Tricking the S8's iris recognition system by utilizing 'night mode,' Europe's largest association of German hackers, the collective Chaos Computer Club (CCC), fooled the phone's sensor with infrared light.

The infrared image was then printed using a laser printer and a contact lens placed on the printed photograph of the infrared image.

When held up to the phone, it was recognised as the eye of the person for whom the handset was registered to and unlocked itself. sky.com
A 4WD Hilux ute that killed Alex Theodore, 62, and Junior Saini, 49, when it allegedly ran a red light on Princes Highway following a series of police pursuits this morning was stolen from Mosman almost 24 hours earlier.

The ute was allegedly stolen about 6.30am yesterday but it only came to the attention of police at 4am, when the first of three police pursuits began.

Mr Theodore and Mr Saini were on their way to work at a printing firm when they were hit by the ute, allegedly driven by Raymond Lomas, 34.

Acting assistant commissioner Michael Fitzgerald said a police car was parked at the intersection before the crash but was not involved in pursuing the stolen ute. dailytelegraph.com.au

British police and intelligence agencies arrested three more suspects Wednesday in connection with the Manchester suicide bombing and moved quickly to secure key sites across the country, including Buckingham Palace and the British Parliament at Westminster.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd said the bomber, identified as British-born Libyan Salman Abedi, "likely" did not act alone when he killed 22 people and wounded dozens at an Ariana Grande concert Monday night in Manchester.

She said he had been known to security forces "up to a point."

Police said three men were arrested Wednesday in south Manchester, where a day earlier a 23-year-old man was also arrested and a number of homes were searched.

Britain raised its threat level from terrorism to "critical" after an emergency government meeting late Tuesday amid concerns that the 22-year-old Abedi may have accomplices who are planning another attack.

British soldiers have been deployed in place of police officers to guard high-profile sites such as Buckingham Palace and Parliament. whio.com

THE Lindt Cafe siege gunman was a “vicious maniac (with a) severe personality disorder”, a scathing coroner’s report has found.

NSW Coroner Michael Barnes this morning delivered the findings from the inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Cafe siege in Martin Place on December 15, 2014.

He described gunman Man Haron Monis as a “vicious maniac (who) oscillated between feigning regard for (the hostages’) welfare and threatening to blow them apart”.

Mr Barnes told a packed the courtroom at Sydney’s John Maddison Tower that a psychiatrist called in by police gave erroneous assessments of the situation inside the cafe and issued ambiguous advice, which contributed to police underestimating the threat Monis posed.

The coroner said the siege “would have challenged any police force in the world”. news.com.au
