CBC reported that Subway’s oven-roasted chicken contained only 53.6 percent chicken DNA, while its chicken strips were found to have only 42.8 percent chicken DNA. The other major ingredient was soy.

Matt Harnden, a researcher at Trent University’s Wildlife Forensic DNA Laboratory, tested six sandwiches from fast food restaurants. The two Subway sandwiches were the worst offenders.

Most of the other meats tested were “very close” to 100 percent chicken, according to Harnden, so they tested the Subway chicken again. He tested the DNA from five pieces of oven-roasted chicken and five pieces of chicken strips, found in Subway’s wraps. The results from the five pieces were averaged, giving the numbers 53.6 percent and 42.8 percent, respectively.

“Our chicken strips and oven roasted chicken contain 1 percent or less of soy protein. We use this ingredient in these products as a means to help stabilize the texture and moisture,” Subway said in its statement.

Subway also said it will look into the matter and ensure with its supplier that the chicken is meeting the company’s standards.

Just for reference, researchers say that chicken from the grocery store should contain 100 percent chicken DNA.

Witnesses: Bar gunman shouted 'get out of my country'

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — Witnesses said a man accused of opening fire in a crowded bar yelled at two Indian men to “get out of my country” before pulling the trigger in an attack that killed one of the men and wounded the other, as well as a third man who tried to help.

Hours later, the suspect reportedly told a bartender in another town that he needed a place to hide because he had just killed two Middle Eastern men.

In India, the father of one of the wounded men called the attack a hate crime, but authorities on Friday declined to discuss a motive as they investigated the shooting. The attack stoked fears about the nation’s treatment of immigrants, who feel targeted by President Donald Trump’s promises to ban certain travelers, build a wall along the Mexico border and put “America first.”

Adam Purinton, 51, was charged with murder and attempted murder in the Wednesday night shooting in the Kansas City suburb of Olathe.

A bartender at Austins Bar and Grill said Purinton used racial slurs before firing. He was taken into custody about five hours later after speaking with a bartender at an Applebee’s some 70 miles away in Clinton, Missouri.

The Kansas City Star reported Purinton’s comments to the bartender. The paper did not cite its sources.

The men who were shot were identified as Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, who died at a hospital, and 32-year-old Alok Madasani and 24-year-old Ian Grillot, who were hospitalized, police said.

Madasani was released from the hospital Thursday.

The LinkedIn accounts for Kuchibhotla and Madasani describe them as engineers for GPS device-maker Garmin, which has its main campus just a mile from the scene of the shooting. The company is one of the region’s best-known employers.

The Indian government said its diplomats would monitor the investigation in Kansas.

FBI spokesman Bridget Patton said the agency had no new information to release Friday. She said the FBI’s role is to work jointly with Olathe police to determine if a civil rights violation occurred.

Bartender Garret Bohnen told the Kansas City Star that Kuchibhotla and Madasani stopped at Austins for a drink once or twice a week. At the time of the attack, patrons were watching a college basketball game on television.

“From what I understand, when he was throwing racial slurs at the two gentlemen, Ian (Grillot) stood up for them,” Bohnen said. “We’re all proud of him.”

Witnesses also told the Star about Purinton’s yelling about leaving the country.

When the gunfire began, Grillot hid under a table until nine shots had been fired. Believing the suspect’s magazine was empty, he then chased the gunman in hopes of subduing him.

“I guess I miscounted with everything going on. And I got behind him, and he turned around and fired a round at me,” Grillot said Thursday from his hospital bed in a video from the University of Kansas Health System.

Grillot said the bullet went through his right hand and into his chest, just missing a major artery but fracturing a vertebra in his neck.

“Another half inch, I could be dead or never walk again,” said Grillot, who was wearing a neck brace. His injured hand remains immobilized.

He did not describe what led to the shooting, saying only that he felt compelled to intervene in the interest of humanity, “not about where he (the victim) was from or his ethnicity.”

“I was just doing what anyone should have done for another human being,” he said. Madasani visited him in the hospital, and they have become friends because of their shared ordeal.

“We’re definitely going to be spending a little time together,” Grillot said. “I don’t think it’s going to be at the bar, though. Maybe some grilling in the backyard with a beer or two.”

Purinton, who is jailed on $2 million bond, was moved Friday from Missouri to Kansas. Because he has not yet appeared in court, Purinton did not yet have an attorney formally assigned. His first court appearance was scheduled for Monday.

Beverly Morris, who has lived next door to Purinton in Olathe for about 20 years, said he never made her feel unsafe.

“He seemed like a good guy,” Morris said, but “anybody who knew him knew he had a drinking problem.”

Olathe Police Sgt. Logan Bonney said officers were interviewing and re-interviewing witnesses Friday to shore up the case.

“We want to present the best case possible and separate fact from fiction for the benefit of the victims and the community,” he said.

In India, the attack shock waves through the hometowns of the two Indian men.

The Indian government said Kuchibhotla was from the southern state of Telangana, and his body was to be transported to the capital city of Hyderabad, where his family lives.

Mourners poured into Hyderabad. His parents were unable to talk after receiving word of his death. They have another son working in the United States.

U.S.-backed offensive pounds Islamic State in western Mosul as civilians flee

Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Friday he had ordered the Iraqi air force to strike Islamic State positions inside Syria in retaliation for recent bomb attacks in Baghdad.

Islamic State, which is on the defensive after losing control of eastern Mosul to a U.S.-backed Iraqi military offensive, has claimed responsibility for several car bombs in Baghdad in the past few weeks.

“We are determined to chase terrorism that tries to kill our sons and citizens wherever it is found, so we gave orders to the air force command to strike Islamic State positions in Hosaiba and Albu Kamal inside Syrian territory as they were responsible for recent bombings in Baghdad,” Abbadi said in a statement.

“The heroes of the sky executed the operation and responded to the terrorists with amazing success.”

Hosaiba is an Iraqi town; Albu Kamal lies within Syria.

A separate statement by the Joint Operations Command said that the strikes had taken place on Friday morning using F16 fighter jets and had destroyed Islamic State headquarters in Albu Kamal.

“The strikes targeted Islamic State’s headquarters used for making car bombs in Albu Kamal… after Iraqi intelligence received tips from their sources inside Syria,” a senior security official told Reuters.

U.S.-backed Iraqi forces have dislodged Islamic State from most of the cities it captured in 2014 and 2015. The militants also control parts of Syria.

Iraqi government forces last month captured eastern Mosul and have now launched an offensive on the western side. The city is divided in two halves by the Tigris River. (Reuters)

Magnitude 5.7 quake strikes Lake Tanganyika area: USGS

(Reuters) – An earthquake of magnitude 5.7 struck the southern area of Lake Tanganyika early on Friday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The epicenter of the quake, initially reported as a magnitude 6.1, was in a national park area in northern Zambia close to Lake Tanganyika.

The quake, which struck at 2:32 a.m. (0032 GMT), could be felt across the lake in Tanzania and to the north in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo, the USGS said.

It was very shallow, at a depth of only 6.2 miles (10 km), which would have magnified its effect, but a magnitude 5.7 quake is considered moderate.

Vice President Pence downplays concerns over disruptions to health care

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – Vice President Mike Pence dismissed concerns Thursday about the pace of Republican plans to repeal and replace the health care law passed by Democrats under President Barack Obama, promising an “orderly transition” to a new system.

“Despite all the fear-mongering from the left, make no mistake about it. We’ll have an orderly transition to a better health care system,” Pence said at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

It was the only comment by Pence in a 20-minute speech that went beyond boilerplate rhetoric and touched on challenges facing the new administration. Nonetheless, the crowd of conservative activists greeted him with warm applause.

Pence’s comments came on the same day that former House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, said Republicans would not repeal Obamacare.

Boehner said in a speech to the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society in Orlando, Fla.” data-reactid=”24″>“All this happy talk that went on in November and December and January about repeal, repeal, repeal. … I started laughing because if you pass repeal without replace, first, anything that happens is your fault. You broke it,” Boehner said in a speech to the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society in Orlando, Fla.

And so far, there does not appear to be much consensus among Republicans on how to replace Obamacare. Trump himself has made wildly contradictory comments on when new legislation would be introduced, and on what it would look like.

    Live from CPAC, it’s Bannon and Priebus

    naturally — bashing the news media.” data-reactid=”9″>Polished White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and pugnacious chief presidential strategist Steve Bannon took their strained buddy routine to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday, reminiscing about Donald Trump’s election victory, promising revolutionary change in Washington, denying their ongoing West Wing power struggle and — naturally — bashing the news media.

    Priebus had just dismissed news reports about their rivalry as all just a big “misconception” and had embarked on a chummy description of their work day just a stumble away from the Oval Office — “we share an office suite together, we’re basically together from 6:30 in the morning until about 11 o’clock at night” — when Bannon cut in.

    “I have a little thing called the ‘war room,’ he has a fireplace and nice sofas,” the former leader of far-right Breitbart News declared, to chuckles from the audience.

    The two top White House aides have been on a public relations tour of sorts, trying to paper over reports that they have been at war inside the West Wing, resulting in a chaotic first 30 days for the president they profess to serve selflessly. Anonymous White House aides have fed those reports with a steady diet of palace intrigue, gossip and sometimes character assassination attempts. But the reality is that it’s hard to fire your national security adviser for misleading your vice president without at least hinting that all is not well behind the scenes.

    And the series of joint interviews that the two senior aides have done suggest that President Trump has grown tired of the turmoil he may have set in motion by picking such vastly different people to help him shoulder the responsibilities of the world’s hardest job.

    They agreed that Trump would make a great president, and that the media was just getting it wrong.

    “If you look at the opposition party and how they portrayed the campaign, how they portrayed the transition and how they are portraying the administration, it’s always wrong,” Bannon said. “Just like they were dead wrong on the chaos of the campaign and just like they were dead wrong in the chaos of the transition, they are absolutely dead wrong about what’s going on today.”

    Hard landing as plane skids on Dutch runway in raging winds

    The Hague (AFP) – A passenger plane skidded along a runway at Amsterdam’s busy airport Thursday as its landing gear collapsed on hitting the ground during heavy winds, but no passengers were injured, officials told AFP.

    Video images of the Flybe plane carrying 59 passengers and crew from Edinburgh showed the plane struggling to stay on course as it came in to land at Schiphol airport, with The Netherlands buffeted by a strong winter storm.

    The plane came to rest on the runway, but with its right wing tipped over to the side close to the grass. Airport officials said they were still investigating the cause of the incident.

    “The plane’s landing gear collapsed as it came in to land,” Schiphol spokesman Jacco Bartelds told AFP.

    “Nobody was injured. They are evacuating passengers now and taking them to the airport building by bus,” he added.

    The Netherlands took the brunt of gale-force winds on Thursday afternoon as the storm — which killed one woman in Britain — caused flight delays and cancellations at Schiphol, one of Europe’s largest hubs.

    The Dutch weather service said winds at times were gusting up between 100-120 kilometres per hour (62-75 miles per hour).

    Around 100 flights were cancelled at the airport and 60 percent of all flights have been delayed by the bad weather, another Schiphol spokeswoman Willemeike Koster said.

    Elsewhere, the wind blew over trucks and trailers on the highways, and littered roadways with fallen branches.

    Dutch meteorologists have sent out a “code orange” alert for most of the western part of The Netherlands until early Friday.

    Philippines: If China builds on shoal, it would strain ties

    MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The Philippines’ top diplomat said Thursday any move by China to transform a Manila-claimed shoal into an island would be a “game-changer” in blossoming relations, although he added that Beijing has pledged not to undertake any construction in the strategically located area of the South China Sea.

    Foreign Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. said any Chinese construction in Scarborough Shoal would be “a very serious, provocative act” that would undermine the Philippine claim to the rich fishing area.

    China has turned seven mostly submerged disputed reefs into sprawling islands, including three with runways, in the last three years. The actions have alarmed China’s rival claimants and the United States, especially after reports that Beijing was installing missile systems on the man-made islands.

    “If they would do that, that will really be a game-changer,” Yasay replied when asked in a news conference how President Rodrigo Duterte’s friendly demeanor to China might change if China undertakes construction or turns Scarborough Shoal, which lies off the northwestern Philippines, into another island.

    “There seems to have been a threat before or a perception that they were going to build, in fact, there were intelligence reports coming from the Americans that they were poised to send dredging vessels precisely to convert this … shoal into an artificial island,” Yasay said, but he added he did not expect China would take such a provocative step.

    “Now we are happy and assured of the fact they will not do so,” he said.

    Five months after Duterte made a state visit to China, Yasay disclosed for the first time that Chinese President Xi Jinping had told the Philippine leader during their meetings that China had no plans to build on Scarborough.

    Yasay grudgingly gave details of Xi’s pledge when pressed by reporters. Duterte and other officials have not disclosed full details of the meeting and have tried to avoid any confrontational language to foster warmer relations with Beijing.

    The assurance was part of efforts by the Asian neighbors to rebuild ties that led to Filipino fishermen regaining access to the shoal last year, he said.

    Duterte, who took office in June, has reached out to China and prioritized economic engagement with the Asian economic powerhouse.

    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters in Beijing, however, that Yasay’s remarks appeared to contradict agreements reached between Xi and Duterte in China last year, adding that the statements go against the “steady and rapid growth of China-Philippine relations.”

    “China thinks they are baffling and regrettable,” Geng said. “We hope Mr. Yasay can follow the agreement reached by the two leaders as well as the common expectation of countries in the region, watch his words and actions and genuinely strive for good China-Philippines ties and regional peace and stability.”

    The U.S. military has been closely watching Chinese activities in Scarborough Shoal, which Beijing seized in 2012 after a dangerous standoff with Philippine vessels. The shoal lies near a vital passageway leading to the Taiwanese Strait and the East China Sea south of Japan, another American ally territorially at odds with China.

    Duterte’s predecessor, Benigno Aquino III, brought the Philippines’ disputes with China to international arbitration, a move that was rejected by Beijing. The arbitration tribunal in The Hague invalidated China’s sweeping territorial claims in the South China Sea based on historical grounds last July, adding that China had violated the rights of Filipinos to fish at Scarborough.

    Beijing ignored the Philippine arbitration victory. Duterte has said he will not press the Chinese government to immediately comply as he rebuilds relations with China but added he would take up the decision with Chinese officials later in his six-year term.
