A driver has admitted to deliberately crashing his rare $1 million Bugatti into an East Texas swamp so that he could collect a $2.2 million insurance payout on the vehicle.

Andy Lee House, a 39-year-old car dealer from Lufkin, Texas, pleaded guilty to wire mail fraud on Tuesday and faces up to 20 years in a federal prison when he is sentenced.

After the accident in November 2009, House claimed he had been reaching for his cell phone when he looked up and saw a pelican, causing his 2006 Bugatti Veryon to swerve off the road.
He crashed into La Marque Lagoon near Galveston and left on the engine, filling it with salt water and destroying the vehicle, the Lufkin Daily News reported.

Boko Haram may link up with ISIS —Australian negotiator

An Australian hostage negotiator, Dr. Stephen Davis, has warned that Boko Haram may establish links with two vicious terror groups- Al Shabaab and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria- if not effectively checked now by the Nigerian government.
Al Shabaab, the militant wing of the Somali Council of Islamic Court,     aligned with Al-Qaeda and took over most of Southern Somalia in the second half of 2006.   The ISIS, on its part,   is an Iraqi group that stands with Al-Qaeda as the most vicious Jihad group in the world.
Davis had visited Nigeria to negotiate   the release of the over 200 schoolgirls abducted since April by Boko Haram insurgents.
He previously worked as a negotiator for Nigerian government under ex-Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Shehu Yar’Adua administrations during the Niger-Delta militants uprising in the South-South.
