Billy Bush gets a second chance at TV show after firing

Billy Bush gets a second chance at TV show after firing NEW YORK (AP) — Three years after being fired by NBC due to the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape, Billy Bush is hoping to use his experience in television's wilderness to his advantage in his new job. Bush begins Monday as host of the revamped pop culture news show, "Extra." He was a rising star just hired as a host on the "Today" show when tape emerged during the 2016 presidential campaign of him laughing to lewd remarks made by Donald Trump before an appearance on "Access Hollywood" 11 years earlier. Following an outcry, Trump was elected president. Bush lost his job.

It was an impressive disguise: the snow-white beard, the oversized glasses, the wheelchair.

Group: We warned Germany of Russia threats to slain Georgian BERLIN (AP) — A group promoting ties between Germany and the Caucasus says it warned German authorities years ago about Russian threats against a man who was shot dead in broad daylight in the heart of Berlin last month. © Provided by The Associated Press This photo provide by the Berlin Police Department on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019, shows a 48-year-old Russian man arrested shortly after the fatal shooting of a 40-year-old Georgian last month.

"He posed as if he was very old and incapacitated," Shrikant Kishore, a senior official with the Central Industrial Security Force, told CNN.

Dressed in a white tunic and trousers, with a white turban and black slippers, the passenger proved reluctant to be frisked.

"Our screener asked the person in the wheelchair to stand. He said that he cannot stand. Our screener asked if he would stand with support. He reluctantly stood up."

That's when the officer noticed that while the passenger's beard and hair were white, the roots were black. He also was working hard to avoid the officer's eyes.

Airline cancels flight to Vienna to avoid being seized over $275 penalty owed to Austrian citizen

Airline cancels flight to Vienna to avoid being seized over $275 penalty owed to Austrian citizen You get what you pay for. Adria Airways canceled a flight Thursday from Ljubljana, Slovenia, to Vienna, Austria, over concerns the aircraft would be seized due to a 250-euro (the equivalent to $275) penalty and instead transported passengers by bus, according to Slovenia’s STA news agency. A court ruled that the airline owes the money to an Austrian citizen for a separate cancelled flight. After the unnamed citizen was scheduled to fly Adria home from Greece in 2017 on a flight that was inevitably cancelled, they went to an organization for passenger rights. The case trickled up to a court that ruled Adria owed the passenger.

When asked for his passport, the individual handed over documentation claiming that he was Amrick Singh, born in Delhi in February 1938, making him 81 years old.

"He was definitely not 80 years old. His skin was of a younger person," Kishore told CNN.

Upon further questioning, the man told security staff that he was, in fact, 32-year-old Jayesh Patel, a resident of Gujarat state.

As he was holding a fake passport, he was detailed by security and handed over to immigration authorities.

Kishore told CNN that he doesn't know what the current status of the case is or the reason behind the impersonation.

Indira Gandhi International Airport, commonly known as Delhi Airport, is the 12th busiest airport in the world, with close to 70 million passengers traveling through it in 2018.
