epa04423619 A handout picture made available by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on 29 September 2014 of regional dust storm activities over Northern Hemisphere of Mars - captured by Mars Color Camera on-board Mars Orbiter Spacecraft from altitude of 74,500 km on 28 September 2014. India placed a spacecraft into orbit around Mars, the first Asian nation to join an elite club of explorers to the Red Planet on 24 September. ISRO confirmed the successful completion of the Mangalyaan probe's voyage to Mars, after a final 'braking' man oeuvre allowed it to be captured by the planet's gravitational pull. The insertion of the Mangalyaan craft into orbit means India joins the United States, Europe and former Soviet Union in undertaking successful missions to Mars.

Sergeant Jackson rested in the living room while his platoon searched the rest of the house for a suspected insurgent. They found nothing suspicious, and the commander assumed he had received bad intelligence. Most of the raids I witnessed were dry holes. Before leaving, the commanding officer would occasionally compensate for damage by pressing a wad of soiled dinars or dollars into wary hands. Usually the platoon would leave without an apology to continue searching for their target, or return to base before insurgents had the chance to organize and attack. RAWA. IRAQ. 2006.
