Welcome back. Here is your current sitrep:

- In response of ISIS brutally torched the Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh to death, the Jordanian government executed two convicts, including a female jihadist Sajida al-Rishawi. Jordan's situation is much like Japan. Both of the captives, two Japanese journalists and a Jordanian pilot, were killed by ISIS without mercy despite their efforts to free them.

- At least twelve people died after a TransAsia flight clipped a bridge and crashed into a river near Taipei, the capital city of Taiwan. 58 people were onboard the domestic flight and while 12 people died, some were reportedly injured. That flight would have been headed from the Songshan Airport to the Kinmen islands.

- Two senators rejected calls for the resignation of Philippine President Benigno Aquino III over the carnage in Mamasapano, Maguindanao, last Sunday, that killed 44 of the nation's top policemen.

- Seven people are reportedly dead when a commuter train smashed a car at a railroad crossing on the outskirts of New York City. 12 others were reportedly injured. The Metro-North Railroad would have headed to a town north of Manhattan when it rammed into the car by about 100 meters before coming to a stop and then, the first train car caught fire in the collision.
