U.S. believes Pakistan let China examine stealth copter

WASHINGTON

u.s. says copter in Pakistan shown to china

In the days after the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May, Pakistan's intelligence service probably allowed Chinese military engineers to examine the wreckage of a stealth American helicopter that crashed during the operation, the New York Times reported Sunday, citing unnamed U.S. officials and others familiar with the classified intelligence assessments. Such cooperation with China would be provocative, providing further evidence of the depths of Pakistan's anger over the bin Laden raid, which was carried out without Pakistan's approval.

Hackers protest cell phone silence

Hackers broke into a website for Bay Area Rapid Transit on Sunday and posted contact information for more than 2,000 transit subscribers, part of a protest against the agency. Transit officials blocked underground cell phone service for a few hours Thursday at several stations as protesters tried to use social networking to organize a demonstration over the recent fatal shooting of a 45-year-old man by police. Some called the decision heavy-handed, and raised free speech questions.
