(Scroll down for video) The leading Israeli airline has announced that it is selling international flights for just $69 in order to compete with other low-cost airlines, according to a statement released by El Al Israel Airlines.

El Al launched its new low-cost airline “Up" on Tuesday, offering flights to many European destinations from $69.

The first flight is set to take off in March 2014.

Flights to Prague and Budapest are being sold for $69 one way, while flights to Berlin, Kiev and Larnaca are being sold for $99.

Following the example of other low-cost airlines, the price of a ticket only covers the flight.

"The new brand will allow customers to choose how they fly and what they pay. The most important thing is that the prices are the same for everyone," CEO of El Al, Elyezer Shkedy, said at a press conference.

"We joined the trend of international aviation and major airlines, while being attentive to the diverse preferences of our customers. ‘UP’ allows the customer to build the product and choose what they are paying," he added.

(Scroll down for video) A young boy was arrested and charged with assault after allegedly beating a 12-year-old yeshiva student in a “Knockout Game” attack, according to police reports in New York.

Brooklyn Police said that they arrested a 13-year-old boy after he was accused of attacking a 12-year-old boy in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, New York, on his way to school.

The boy was charged with third-degree assault and aggravated harassment. The boy was released back into the custody of his mother.

The 12-year-old victim, who wished to remain anonymous, said that this incident could have been avoided with closer dedication to religion.

"I think this all could have been avoided. Children and teenagers know that there is a God watching, and they would not only be afraid of the police," the boy said.

The boy, a student at Chabad Lubavitch, reported the incident to police because he was looking for an apology, not because he wanted the police to make an arrest, the boy also said.

(Scroll down for video) A UPS driver is in trouble after a woman posted photos of herself having sex in back of his UPS truck.

This is not what UPS intended with their slogan "what can brown do for you."

A woman, who calls herself Mary Ann, a “happiness consultant” of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, posted a number of explicit photos on her website showing her bare-chested wearing nothing but an open UPS shirt.

The woman’s personal website contained numerous photos along with graphic descriptions of the sexual encounter she had with a UPS delivery man.

In the headline she wrote: "Look at my naughty time yesterday."

The photos have caused outrage among viewers, some of whom questioned the driver’s reason for allowing the woman to take photos.

“He had nothing to gain and everything to lose,” one said.

Now, he is indeed at risk of losing his job, as UPS is trying to uncover the identity of the driver from Oklahoma City, who apparently had sex in the back of one of their trucks.

"It disrespects UPS drivers and customers. This is not behavior we would ever condone for anyone, let alone for our company. We want to assure everyone that this will be fully investigated," Susan Rosenberg, a spokesperson at the UPS corporate office said.

A group of mothers delivered street justice after a teenager was seen raping a 4-year-old child on the street.

A few kids ware playing on the streets in South Africa, when a teen walked up to them.

He grabbed one of the children and began raping him before moving the child to a nearby abandoned building.

His terrified friends ran to call their mothers, screaming that their friend was being hurt.

The women followed their children to where the teenager was still raping the boy.

The women began beating the half-naked teen. He managed to escape after being stripped of all his clothes.

"How will my child ever recover from this?" Asked the mother of the victim. “What if my child was infected with a deadly disease?" She said

Community members caught up with the teen and began beating him with broomsticks, belts and sticks, before taking him to the Itsoseng police station near Lichtenburg, North West.

Police officers covered up the naked teen with a plastic garbage bag before taking him into custody.

The teen was then taken to a hospital to treat the wounds, which he received at the hands of the angry residents.

The suspect currently has a pending rape charge against him for raping a 72-year-old woman, according to neighbors.

"We have previously threatened to take the law into our own hands if justice is not done. Our justice system is failing us and we are sick of it. We are running out of patience," Jacob Monageng, 38, said.

"We want to teach those who prey on our women and children a lesson they will never forget," Kelebogile Diseko, 30, said.

"I wanted to slice his manhood off before killing him with my own hands. He should rot in jail for what he did to my son. I will never forgive him,” the mother of the victim said.

North West police spokesperson Sergeant Kealeboga Moiloa confirmed that a rape case has been opened and that the teen will appear in court soon.

Man left red faced after being seen on video planting banana peel before suing train station

Maurice Owens in the elevator 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) A man in Washington D.C., was arrested for fraud after he was seen on video placing a banana peel in an elevator before “falling on it’.

Maurice Owens, 42, of District Heights, sued after he slipped on a banana peel at the Potomac Avenue Metro Station in Washington D.C.

He sued the transit agency for $15,000, part of which was for his $4,500 chiropractor bill.

However, a surveillance video, which was used as evidence against him in court, showed that Owens planned the whole incident.

The video showed Owens walking into the clean and empty elevator about 9:00 p.m.

Although the video does not clearly show Owens throwing the peel on the floor you can see the movements with the hands and pockets.

Then, when he stepped away from the door and still inside the elevator, the banana peel, which was not there before, suddenly appeared on the floor.

Perhaps the most incriminating piece of footage is where Owens was seen looking for a security camera, and when he looked directly at the camera, he seemed to be nervous.

When the doors opened, Owens made sure to step directly onto the peel and falling forward, before quickly getting up.

Thanks to this video, his lawsuit was dismissed.

He was arrested and charged with fraud in the second degree.

Officials are now working to determine who was actually buried in the grave.

Woman breaks up with cheating husband via big sign at bar

The signs 
By: Shifra Unger

A woman was very angry when her husband cheated on her, so she decided to shame him publicly.

The woman rented a space on top of her husband’s favorite bar, and placed an embarrassing sign for all to see.

While most break-ups happen behind closed doors one unfaithful husband of South Wales, United Kingdom, discovered that his wife was leaving him at the same time as his friends and his entire neighborhood.

When he went to his favorite bar called Noah's Yard in Swansea, he found a sign reading “PAUL… I AM DIVORCING YOU.”

The next day, a follow-up sign appeared, saying: “BTW I AM KEEPING THE DOG.”

The scorned wife said she wanted to “make him pay” after she found out he was having an affair.

“I was angry and upset so I wanted a sign to go up for everyone to see,” she said.

The woman said that they have been together a long time, and it is so sad it has come to this.

“I am absolutely devastated and going through a really tough time at the moment,” she added.

“I did feel a bit better once the sign went up,” the woman admitted.

Ironically, this wasn't the first time the woman had used this bar for a sign. She had previously used magnetic letters when she asked Paul to marry.

“The magnetic sign outside our store is often used to support causes in the community and the area's sports team,” bar owner Noah Redfern, 36, said.

“We have had a lot of interest from customers, who have been asking about the story behind the sign,” he added.

Passerby Ron Williams claimed it would keep men in the area on their toes.

“This could give a lot of women in the city an idea. I'm guessing there will be a few nervous husbands walking down the street today,” Williams said.

A woman as asking for the public’s help to locate her stolen stillborn baby’s ashes.

Kimberly Moler said she did not think that her sister, Shawna Coby, would ever have to endure something as painful as the loss of a child again.

Coby lost her daughter, Grace, in 2009. However, all those painful feelings are returning, Moler said, as the family is looking for Grace's ashes that were stolen from their van in Anchorage on Friday afternoon.

The ashes were inside a small white box that said "Baby Grace" in pink lettering, and it was inside a backpack on the passenger seat of the van.

While Coby was at the Alaska Native Medical Center with her husband, Luther, around 12:30 p.m. for an appointment to check on her pregnancy, someone broke the passenger side window and took the backpack, which contained only the ashes, a change of clothes for Coby’s 3-year-old child Matthew, and a bottle of water.

"When Coby traveled, she did not like to leave the ashes at home," Moler said, adding that the whole family is devastated. "It's like going through the loss again," she said.

However, she found something in the bag that was not green beans.

She found the head of a snake.

Moser said that she was spilling the beans from a bag she bought at the Oak Grove Fred Meyer, and the head of the snake just came out. At first she thought it was a group of green beans stems.

"When it began to unfold I realized that it had a mouth, nose and tiny eyes. Not what I thought I was buying," Moser said.

By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A man saw a new car and he fell in love with it, but he didn't have the money for the purchase, so he decided to sell his testicle, according to video uploaded to the Internet.

The car lover is selling one of his testicles for $35,000 so you can buy a Nissan 370.

Most men cringe at the thought of parting with one of their most valuable items, but Mark Parisi does not seem to mind at all.

Parisi confirmed in public on the television show “The Doctors” that he planned to sell his left testicle to medical researchers, and with the funds he will buy a new vehicle.

As we reported earlier, a man is making money by being a guinea pig for researchers.

Mark Parisi of Las Vegas, Nevada, plans to donate one of his testicles for medical research for $35,000.

Researchers may not have much of a choice over the price as not many people would give up their healthy testicle voluntarily.

Parisi has revealed that he constantly takes part in these trials in order to earn extra or save money.

Parisi has admitted that he often volunteers for clinical trials throughout Nevada, where he is used as a guinea pig by the establishments for many processes.

Parisi said that it has saved him thousands of dollars in medical expenses. He is able to get free health check-ups, in addition to being paid several thousand dollars for participating in these experiments.

Now, Parisi is willing to undergo surgery to have one of his testicles removed in exchange for $35,000.

Parisi said that he is not worried about it because he will get an artificial replacement testicle instead.

It was reported, that in the past, Parisi was ready to undergo a flat line study during which his heart was to be stopped for one minute.

However, the FDA stepped in and did not allow the procedure to be done.

Woman sells picture frames made of placentas

A placenta picture frame 
By: Moses Gold

If it placentas don’t freak you out you can now buy picture frames made out of your own placenta after giving birth.

Some people eat them, while others leave them attached to their newborn baby for some time. Now, the latest craze is for parents to turn their child's placenta into a photo frame.

A new college graduate living in the United Kingdom, has found a way to fill dried pieces and shredded placentas into molds to create marbleized picture frames. She is already receiving orders from new and expectant parents.

Amanda Cotton uses all of the placenta to make a frame. She first boils and then grinds it into small pieces before placing it in a mold.

"I had a lot of positive feedback from parents and I already have customers," Cotton said.

“I can understand why some people might find this a little gross, but what attracted me was the use of materials considered as waste. I completed a master's degree in sustainable design at the University of Brighton a couple of years ago, and these issues are close to my heart. I have friends who swear by placenta capsules and say that it gives them more energy, more milk and even beat the postpartum blues,” one customer said.

“You can donate placentas to train dogs in search of human remains. There are many uses for these bits of tissue that keep your baby alive for nine months. However, most placentas are thrown away. Now that's a waste," she also said.

Cotton developed her technique before graduating this year. She practiced 3D materials in the Faculty of Arts.

The 25-year-old, who works for a design company in London, has said that she is expanding the range of products after receiving positive feedback from parents.

"It is very common for people to keep their baby’s products such as the umbilical cord, the first tooth or hair clippings, along with photos and notes. The placenta is one of the first creations of the mother and baby. Why not celebrate it with a memory?” Cotton said.

Great-grandfather, 92, asked for ID to verify he is over 18 while buying vodka

Tony Ball with his bottles of vodka 
By: Debbie Gross

A 92-year-old man was shocked when he was asked for identification to prove he was really over 18-years-old while buying vodka at his local store in the United Kingdom.

Tony Ball, a World War Two veteran, had nothing to prove that he is over 18-years-old, so he was told he could not buy the two bottles of vodka he wanted.

Ball, who has 16 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren, was buying the bottles for the holidays, and he first thought that the cashier at the Tesco store in Feltham, west London, was joking.

“I laughed but then the cashier said: ‘We are not allowed to sell you alcohol if you are a minor,’" he said.

“By the look on her face I realized that she was not kidding. I asked her if she really meant it and she said that if I had a complaint I need to tell Tesco,” Ball said.

Ball, who fought in North Africa and Italy in World War Two, added: "I went to another store across the road and it was cheaper."

The manager of the cashier later admitted that she had done it as a joke.

"I can take a joke, but that was not a joke. I was embarrassed too, because there were other people in the line," Ball said.

“Our colleague was trying to be cheerful. We have apologized and we're keeping the bottles for Ball if he decides to come back,” Tesco said in a statement.

Newspaper delivery person finds bomb inside teddy bear

The teddy bear

(Scroll down for video) A newspaper delivery person was traumatized after finding a bomb inside a teddy bear, according to police reports in North Carolina.

The newspaper delivery man found the teddy bear on a rural road, only to be later told authorities that a bomb had been tucked inside.

Anthony Cannon saw the teddy bear before dawn on Thursday, while driving along his route near Lattimore. Later, he decided to turn around and pick it up.

"I thought it was unusual for a teddy bear to be sitting in the middle of the road," Cannon, 42, said. "It was pitch black out there. When I grabbed the bear some kind of container fell," he said.

Not realizing he was holding an improvised explosive device, Cannon left the teddy bear and took the bomb. He went to his cousin's house, where he examined the bomb more closely.

He said it was a small bottle, covered with tape and it had some wires coming out of it. Suspecting that what he had can be dangerous, Cannon put the device on the porch and called police.

Among those who responded was a bomb squad from the nearby town of Gastonia.

"Within about two minutes, they said it was an improvised explosive device and ordered us out of the house," Cannon said.

Police said that the bomb was capable of causing serious damage.

The bomb was defused and sent to a lab. Federal investigators are inspecting the unit, looking for clues as to who planted the device.

Although he could have been seriously injured or killed, Cannon said that he is happy he took the bear up off the road.

"If a child had walked down the street and saw the bear, I'm pretty sure they would have picked it up," he said.
