An undated photo made available by The National Archives of Eric Roberts, a lone MI5 agent who secretly penetrated the ranks of Britain's wartime Nazi sympathizers and who has been identified as an unassuming suburban bank clerk. Time and time again, the low-key “Jack King” was able to convince British traitors that he was a Gestapo man, hoovering up potentially lethal information intended for the Nazis and keeping it safely in British hands. A secret Security Service document made public Friday, Oct. 24, 2014, unveils his real identity: “King” was really Eric Arthur Roberts, a bank clerk seemingly without special training. (AP Photo/The National Archives)LONDON (AP) — At the height of World War II, Hans Kohout wanted to give the Nazis advance word of a top-secret British tactic that could neutralize an enemy's air defenses, leaving major cities exposed to devastating air raids, according to secret intelligence files released Friday.

Swedish minesweeper HMS Kullen searches for what the military says is a foreign threat in the waters of the Stockholm Archipelago, on October 19, 2014Sweden said on Friday it appeared that at least one foreign vessel had likely operated in waters near its capital in recent days, calling such activity "unacceptable." "Our assessment is that there was at least one (vessel)," Rear Admiral Anders Grenstad told reporters in Stockholm, hours after the week-long operation for what media speculated was a Russian submarine was called off. "It's the assessment of the defence forces that probably foreign underwater activity has taken place in Stockholm's inner archipelago," he said, calling any foreign activity within Swedish territory "unacceptable."

FILE - In a Monday, Jan. 17, 2011 file photo, gun violence protesters participate in a lie-in during an anti-gun rally at the Capitol in Richmond, Va. Nearly six in 10 Americans want stricter gun laws in the aftermath of last month's deadly school shooting in Connecticut, with majorities favoring a nationwide ban on military-style, rapid-fire weapons and limits on gun violence depicted in video games and movies and on TV, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. A lopsided 84 percent of adults would like to see the establishment of a federal standard for background checks for people buying guns at gun shows, the poll showed. President Barack Obama was set Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013 to unveil a wide-ranging package of steps for reducing gun violence expected to include a proposed ban on assault weapons, limits on the capacity of ammunition magazines and universal background checks for gun sales.
