Russia has tested the "father of all bombs", touting it as the world's most powerful non-nuclear weapon.

The air-delivered vacuum bomb was tested on Sept. 11 and appears to be a response to the US "mother of all bombs" or Massive Ordinance Air Blast Bomb, tested last March. Russia's bomb, while technically carrying less explosive, is said to be more efficient, having a blast radius of twice that of MOAB and an epicenter temperature twice as high.

According to Bloomberg, The Russian Defense Ministry stated, "Russia isn't unleashing a new arms race," however last month, President Putin ended a 15-year suspension of strategic, long-range bomber patrols.

An 8-year-old girl watched in horror as a berserk llama attacked her mother, Terrebonne, Oregon resident Nancy Campbell, around 6pm Monday. according to a report in the Bend Bulletin.

The animal, suffering from "Berserk Llama Syndrome" had escaped its enclosure five days earlier. It attacked Campbell as she was jogging. She fought it off, then kept her body between the marauding beast and her daughter, whom she instructed to ride home on her bike.

No one was seriously injured, but it took five people to hold the 250 pound llama until the Humane society arrived. The animal was humanely euthanized.
