Egypt's foreign minister on Tuesday called for a "collective and international approach" against the "barbarism" of jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq. In an interview with AFP, Sameh Shoukri said: "What we need is a collective and international approach that takes into account all the different elements required to fight this phenomenon: political, military and social." Asked whether Egypt could envisage a possible military intervention against the extremists, the minister said Cairo was "ready to support the international community in terms of what might be decided on this subject" after a United Nations Security Council resolution. On Saturday, US Secretary of State John Kerry called for a global coalition to combat the Islamic State jihadist group and their "genocidal agenda".
Circuit Court of Appeals in New York was the first appellate court to hear arguments on whether the National Security Agency (NSA) program is lawful, in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) challenging the gathering of so-called metadata. Judge Gerard Lynch, one of three judges who heard the arguments, said it was "hard for me to imagine" Congress had envisioned such a sweeping effort when it passed an expansion of anti-terrorism powers known as the Patriot Act after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Stuart Delery, a lawyer for the Justice Department, told Lynch in response that Congress was fully informed when it voted to reauthorize the Patriot Act twice.
Home Depot Inc said on Tuesday it was working with law enforcement to investigate "some unusual activity" related to customer data but that it could not confirm if it had become the latest retailer to be hit by a large-scale security breach. "At this point, I can confirm that weâre looking into some unusual activity and we are working with our banking partners and law enforcement to investigate," Home Depot representative Paula Drake wrote in an emailed statement to Reuters. "If we confirm that a breach has occurred, we will make sure customers are notified immediately." The statement came after security website KrebsonSecurity first reported that multiple banks had seen evidence that Home Depot may be the source of stolen credit and debit cards put up for sale on underground markets. Retail customers faced a massive data breach during last year's holiday season when hackers stole at least 40 million payment card numbers and 70 million other pieces of customer data from Target Corp .
