Vice President Joe Biden Attends Son Beau Biden's Emotional Viewing Service Surrounded by Family

Beau Biden's viewing service was emotional to say the least.

Vice President Joe Biden, whose son tragically passed away from brain cancer five days ago at the young age of 46, was surrounded by friends and family Thursday at Beau's public service and viewing at Legislative Hall in Dover, Del.

Biden, his wife Jill Biden, Beau's wife and kids and the rest of their family were understandably emotional while watching honor guards carry Beau's casket, which was draped with an American flag. The famous fam shed tears as they said goodbye to the former Attorney General, who had been battling brain cancer for several years.

In addition to the service and viewing, Beau was awarded the Conspicuous Service Cross, Delaware's highest honor, for his "heroism, meritorious service and outstanding achievement."

US student killed in mosque attack called a ‘hero’

He was a Kansas college student who had returned home in order to get married.
And then after that, Abduljaleel Alarbash planned to leave Saudi Arabia and head back to Wichita State University, where the electrical engineering major was an honor roll student.

It appeared like it was nothing but good times ahead for “Jalil,” as his college buddies called him.
Until Friday, when the 22-year-old’s life was cut short by a suicide bomber outside of a mosque in Dammam in eastern Saudi Arabia.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, its second on a Shiite mosque in as many weeks.
The blast also killed Jalil’s brother, Mohammed, and their cousin, Alarbash’s father, speaking in Arabic, said in a video posted Saturday.

The elder Alabash said the trio volunteered as security guards at the Al-Anoud Mosque, located in a predominantly Shiite neighborhood, and that they died “heroes” because they prevented the suicide bomber from getting inside, where scores of Shiite Muslims were worshiping at the time.

“The suicide bomber approached the mosque wearing (a traditional robe worn by women),” he said. “They 
suspected him so they stopped him and uncovered his face.”

The official Saudi account of the attack, however, is less clear than the one told by the grieving father.
A Ministry of Interior spokesman initially said it was “security authorities” who intercepted the terrorist, and later issued a statement in which they were merely referred to them as “security men. “

A Saudi source with detailed knowledge of the investigation, however, told CNN that the terrorist was indeed challenged by Shiites who had volunteered to search people trying to enter the mosque for Friday prayers.

For some in the Wichita State community who knew him, there is no doubt that Alarbash was the hero that day.

“Abduljalil saved hundreds of lives … including my father and some of my friends,” said Mohammad Aljady, a fellow Wichita State student. “We believe what he did made him a hero and the world will never forget heroes.”

“(Abduljalil) and his brother were heroes,” said Mohammed Alsaeed, another student. “From the bottom of my heart I thank them for saving my family and others’ lives.”
People who knew him on campus described Alarbash as a popular person who went out of his way to help others.

“What an amazing guy he was!” said Saeed Qaed AlGhamdi, the president of Wichita State University’s Saudi Student Association. “He was funny, a good guy and we are sorry about what happened to him.”
“He was such an amazing man and will never be forgotten,” added Mohammed Alradhi.

John Kerry Breaks Leg In Bike Crash

GENEVA — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has broken his leg in bike crash near Geneva and has called off the rest of a four-nation trip.
Kerry now plans to return to the United States on Sunday after X-rays at a Swiss hospital confirmed that he fractured his right femur.
He will receive further treatment in Boston.
State Department spokeswoman John Kirby says Kerry will be treated by the same doctor who performed a prior hip surgery.
Kirby says Kerry is stable, never lost consciousness and that his injury is not life-threatening.
He says Kerry should make a full recovery and is in good spirits.
Ending the trip means Kerry is skipping meetings with Spanish leaders and a conference in Paris on fighting the Islamic State group.
