Turkish authorities detained two men suspected of shooting at the U.S. Embassy in the capital Ankara on Monday, in an attack that coincides with increased tensions between the two NATO allies over the trial of a U.S. pastor in Turkey, Reuters reported. Nobody was hurt in the attack, which President Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman condemned as an attempt “to create chaos.” The Turkish Foreign Ministry said it had increased security for the embassy and other U.S. missions and employees in Turkey.

|‘Whitechapel Fatberg’: Last Piece Of The Infamous 130-Ton Sewer Clog Live-Streamed By London Museum|

Last year, the world gaped in awe as Thames Water employees discovered a "monstrous" mass of congealed excrement and waste blocking a Victorian-era sewer tunnel in the east side of London, in the Whitechapel area.
Dubbed the "Whitechapel fatberg," this historic sewage clog was probably the largest one ever found and measured 250 meters (820 feet) in length, weighing 130 tons (260,000 pounds). In other words, it was longer than two football fields and weighed about as much as 11 double-decker buses, reported in September.
Now, a piece of that hardened blob of excrement and waste that Londoners have flushed down the drain, including condoms, diapers, and wet wipes glued together by fats and oils, is being live-streamed by the Museum of London as a prized artifact — a putrid, metaphorical memento of life in the 21st century.
