Security has been boosted across the Los Angeles metro following a call threatening to blow up one of the busiest stations in the networkThe threat was relayed by an anonymous man who called a public safety line run by an unidentified foreign government, which then passed on the information to a Federal Bureau of Investigation terrorism task force, said Deirdre Fike, assistant director in charge of the FBI's office in Los Angeles. The target of the threatened attack was metro's Universal City station -- located near the Universal Studios theme park -- where the caller who spoke English said an explosive device would go off on Tuesday, Fike told reporters at a hastily organized press conference with local authorities. "The threat is imminent and it's related to tomorrow" and concerned an off-ramp at the station, Los Angeles police chief Charlie Beck said.

BAMAKO (Reuters) - Suspected Islamist militants attacked a prison in the town of Niono in central Mali late on Monday and freed all the prisoners, army spokesman Diarran Kone said. Militants in northern Mali have staged a series of high-profile attacks since 2015, extending their campaign beyond their desert bases into the central and southern regions of the country and the capital.

A worker holds his briefcase as he walks across London Bridge in LondonBy Anjuli Davies LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's financial services sector contributed a record 71.4 billion pounds in taxes last year, highlighting the potentially big impact of the country's vote to leave the European Union, according to the City of London Corporation. There is growing speculation that banks based in Britain will lose their rights to sell services freely across the EU once the country exits the now 28-nation bloc, prompting some to relocate to the continent. The total tax contribution from the financial services sector for the period to March 31, 2016 increased 7.4 percent from the previous year to the highest amount since the survey, compiled by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) for the City of London Corporation, began nine years ago.
