A Canadian passenger airline with 54 passengers swerves above ground to avoid an unmanned flying object near Toronto on Monday. The Porter Airlines Bombardier Q400 plane's two pilots performed an evasive maneuver at 9,000 feet to avoid the flying object while descending into the city's Billy Bishop waterfront airport, causing two cabin crew members to suffer from slight injuries.
Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) Spokeswoman, Genevieve Corbin said that the object was most likely a drone. The plane landed at about 7:30 a.m, followed by an investigation launched by TSB.
On the US Politics side, thousands of students carried protests against the U.S presidential election victory of Repubican Donald Trump, second week after he won the election.
Students from across the country walked out of their classes protesting with chanting praises like "Not my President". Estimated 4,000 students from Los Angeles Unified School District protested across the country, while Seattle Public School Officials said that there are about 5,000 students from 20 high schools and middle schools who joined on Monday. Authorities in Portland, Oregon, Montgomery County, Maryland, and the San Francisco Bay Area said hundreds of young people marched in protest as well.
Thousands of people have marched to rally in cities since Donald Trump's presidential win over Hillary Clinton last Tuesday. Trump secured enough votes in the 538-member Electoral College to win the presidency despite trailing Clinton in the popular vote.
Meanwhile, Islamic State claimed a series of suicide attacks on Monday as a U.S-backed campaign to take hold of the city of Mosul in Northern Iraq on Monday.
The Salafi jihadist militant group made an attack that killed at least 14 people in Baghdad as the Mosul, the insurgents' last urban stronghold in Iraq, made slow progress. The attack showed that the militant group still retain the ability to strike across Iraq even though they have been losing territory over the past year and faced a big battle to capture Mosul.
Eight people were killed and about 25 wounded when two suicide bombers blew up their cars at police checkpoints in Falluja, a former Islamic State stronghold west of Baghdad, while a suicide bomber killed six people and wounded another six in a rural area near Kerbala, a holy Shi'ite city south of the capital where preparations are underway for a major religious event.
Islamic State has been retreating since last year and was driven out of Falluja in June. In Iraq, the group continues to control territory west of Mosul, the northern city from where it declared a "caliphate" over parts of Syria and Iraq in 2014. Iraqi government forces, who are supported by Kurdish peshmerga fighters and Iranian-backed Shi'ite militias, are yet to cross into the northern and southern limits of Mosul, where more than a million people are thought to be still living.
