Man killed on bus in 3rd fatal transit attack in 10 days
A man was fatally stabbed during a feud aboard an MTA bus in the Bronx, the eighth person to be killed in the transit system this year, and the third person to be fatally stabbed in transit in 10 days.
Lamont Barkley, 55, got into a verbal dispute with a man and woman, believed to be boyfriend and girlfriend, on a BX19 bus at about 8:25 p.m. Sunday night. The argument escalated and police say the man stabbed Barkley multiple times in the stomach at East 149th Street and Gerard Avenue.
Russia strikes Kyiv, multiple Ukrainian cities; many dead
Russia unleashed a lethal barrage of strikes against multiple Ukrainian cities Monday, smashing civilian targets including downtown Kyiv where at least eight people were killed amid burnt-out cars and shattered buildings that brought back into focus the grim reality of war after months of easing tensions in the capital.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose forces invaded neighboring Ukraine on Feb. 24, said the strikes were retaliation for what he called Kyiv's "terrorist" actions - a reference to Ukraine's attempts to repel Moscow's invasion force and cripple their supply lines.
The actions he referred to include an attack last weekend on a key bridge between Russia and the annexed Crimean Peninsula, which is prized by the Kremlin.
