Vietnam: Confirms it has acquired BrahMos anti-ship cruise missiles from India.

(Hanoi) The Vietnamese the masters of asymmetric warfare have confirmed that they have purchased from India the BrahMos anti-ship cruise missiles. A purchase which will surely infatuate the Chinese and make them tread very carefully in any future naval entanglements with the Vietnamese which until now they have used their sheer size in which to bully their much smaller neighbour:

In which to claim the entire South China sea. This in  turn has lead to many of the smaller nations that border the South China increasing their military spending in which to counter the Chinese Dragon.

With the purchase of the BrahMos anti-ship cruise missiles,Hanoi has gotten its hands on a unstoppable supersonic cruise missile which currently there is no known defence against, with a range of 280 miles, Vietnam now has a weapon which will make Beijing think twice regards venturing into Vietnamese waters.

Morocco: 15 boys catch rabies after gang-raping donkey

(Sidi Al Kamel) 15 boys aged between 7 to 15, have had to be admitted to hospital after they all caught rabies after gang-raping a poor little donkey. The boys spent a week at the Mechraa Belksiri Hospital in the rural town of Sidi Al Kamel receiving treatment and a rabies vaccination after contracting the disease.

However, it is feared that the number of children infected with the disease is much higher, with families taking their young children for tests in hospitals. Police are appealing to anyone who “approached” or “admired” the donkey to come forward in order to be tested for the disease and seek treatment. The poor donkey has since been put down.

Searches of his  home revealed almost 7,000 indecent images and videos of children stored on various devices. Further examination revealed appropriate videos Hassan had made of himself , including masturbating  in a child's bedroom whilst on duty. Evidence was also gathered which showed Hassan had destroyed other storage devices in a bid to cover his tracks.

Spain:'Bigger' attacks were prepared, Police issue pictures of wanted Muslims.

(Madrid) After the incidents this past 24 hours around Barcelona, it appears that despite the huge death toll of 13 and over 100 injured, the Spanish really dodged a bullet (and a number of bombs) as police investigations reveal that the Islamic plot to murder death kill could have been a lot worse if their initial plans hadn't gone tits up early.

It transpires that a house that exploded on Wednesday just down the coast from Barcelona was actually a bomb factory full of explosives which put paid to the plan of blowing people up. This is also believed to have precipitated the gang to put forward their planned day of rage from Friday (Islamic holy day) to the day before due to the fear of being found out.

Spanish police have now released pictures of 4 Islamic males whom they wish to track down.

Moussa Oukabir (left) is believed to have been killed, while (left to right) Said Aallaa, Mohamed Hychami and Younes Abouyaaqoub, remain at large.

Sky News have summed up the last 24 hours in the following most informative tweet:

Finland: 'Allahu Akbar' screaming attacker goes on rampage - two dead, several injured

(Turku) At around 1640hrs local time, a lone knifeman attacked random people, stabbing several people (including a mother and her baby). The Ilta-Sanomat tabloid said six people were injured in the attack, one man and five women, and that a woman with a stroller had been attacked by a man with a large knife. Finnish broadcaster YLE said several people were seen lying on the ground in Puutori Square after the attack. Finnish police have stated that they have shot and arrested one man and are not looking for anybody else.

So far, the identity of the suspect is unknown to the police, with the authorities checking with Europol to identify the attacker. According to Minister of the Interior Paula Risikko, “This is a foreign-looking person” and the Finnish Immigration Service will investigate whether he had a right to be in Finland.

From Mirror:
Armed police have opened fire on knife-wielding attacker who witnesses claim was 'screaming Allahu Akbar' as he went on a rampage 'randomly stabbing people' in Finland.

Two people have died in what people initially believed to be a terror-related incident - although police say it's too early to be certain and said this evening it is NOT currently being investigated as such.

Police earlier said "several people have been knifed" in the centre of Turku this afternoon - including 'a woman and a baby' in a pushchair, according to local media.

The knifeman has been identified as an 18 year old Moroccan and the authorities have deemed this a terrorist incident.

Philippines: Over 80 people killed over past 3 days after President Duterte said he wanted to see dozens of bodies per day

(Manila)  Not content with the ongoing crisis in the south of the country where after 3 months the battle for the city of Marawi still continues. Death toll as of the 13th August:

562 militants killed
9 militants captured
128 government forces killed
60 government forces missing
900 government forces wounded
119 civilians dead 
President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs continues unabated  with over 80 people killed by the Police over the past few days. Police operations in various parts of Bulacan, a province north of the capital, left 32 “drug dealers/users killed and over 100 others arrested.

Duterte has praised the operation in Bulacan, which took place from Monday night until Tuesday afternoon, and urged police to kill dozens of drug suspects every day.
“The ones who died recently in Bulacan, 32, in a massive raid, that was good,” Duterte said in a speech to an anti-crime organisation that has backed the drugs war. “If we could kill another 32 every day, then maybe we can reduce what ails this country.”
Naturally Human rights groups have complained about the killings of so many people associated with drugs  by saying he may be overseeing crimes against humanity in his brutal anti-drugs campaign, which has left thousands dead. In return Duterte  has said he would investigate human rights defenders criticising him, or order officers to kill them.
“One of these days, you human rights groups, I will also investigate you. That’s the truth. For conspiracy,” If they are obstructing justice, you shoot them, So they can really see the kind of human rights.”

Spain: Terror attacks Parts 2 and 3: 6 Terrorists shot dead.

(Cambrils) After the terrorist attack yesterday in Barcelona where 13 people were killed when a Van was driven through a busy shopping centre.  Spanish police were on heighten alert and last night that pro-activeness paid dividends when 3 hours after that initial attack a vehicle was driven into a Police checkpoint  on the edge of Barcelona in  Sant Just Desvern, Police fired into the vehicle killing the Driver (Who has yet to be identified) 

Then at 1am Friday morning  around 70 miles away in the town of Cambrils another vehicle was driven into a Police checkpoint injuring 7 people. Unfortunately for the attackers, their Audi A3 overturned and when the 5 men inside dressed in fake suicide vests and armed with knives staggered out, they were all shot dead. 

It is now believed that part of this Islamist cell is thought to have blown itself up in the early hours of Thursday morning while trying to assemble a bomb in a house in another coastal town, Alcanar Platja, some 200km south along the coast from Barcelona. One person was killed and another wounded in an initial explosion that destroyed the house. Police and firefighters who came to the scene were wounded by a second blast.

Holland: Religious bigot fined $3 million, ICC to pay that fine as he is skint

(The Hague) Ahmadal-Faqi al-Mahdi, who is currently serving a 9-year prison sentence for destroying ancient mausoleums in Timbuktu, has been fined $3.2 million in damages by the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Ahmad al-Faqi al-Mahdi 
The case revolves around how Mahdi led terrorists who destroyed nine of Timbuktu's mausoleums and the centuries-old door of the city's Sidi Yahia mosque in 2012. Mahdi was described as a member of Ansar Dine - an Islamic terrorist group which occupied Timbuktu for months, enforcing its own version of Sharia law on residents. The court has said the $3.1m (£2.4m) damages should go to the local community of Timbuktu protecting the sites. In its ruling, the ICC said that its reparations order was based on three categories of harm: "damage to the attacked historic and religious buildings, consequential economic loss, and moral harm." Part of the reparations costs will also go toward individuals whose livelihoods depended on the Timbuktu landmarks and whose ancestors' burial sites were wrecked in the attack. Mahdi pleaded guilty to the crime and apologised. He said he had been overtaken by evil spirits and urged Muslims not to follow his example.

However, this is where it gets silly. Mahdi is in prison and has no money, so the money for the damages will come from the ICC's Trust Fund for Victims.

So, can somebody please tell me how this punishes this religious bigot and sends a strong message to those who may carry out similar acts of destruction?

Gaza: Suicide bomber targets Hamas at border checkpoint

(Rafah) Whilst the leader of Hamas warns Israel with death and destruction if they even as much as look in his direction (yawn), it is facing a threat of its own from within its own band of brothers and on the border with Egypt.

For the past few years, Egypt has faced terrorism in the northern Sinai, predominantly near its border with… Gaza. Egypt has naturally closed off the vast majority of border crossings (legal and illegal). In order to get back into the good books of the Egyptians, Hamas has had to visibly patrol its border with Egypt, denying those who wish to murder death kill their right to do so.

Well, yesterday, a border patrol challenged a couple of idiots trying to leave Gaza for Egypt, and when they called their fellow terrorists over, one of them must have uttered those immortal magic words
“Allah Ackba!”
Which resulted in him exploding, killing one of the Hamas guards and injuring the others.

Gaza: Hamas takes page out of North Korean book of diplomacy and threatens to 'pummel' Israel

(Gaza City) The leader of Hamas, Yahya Sinwar, issued a threat to the Jewish nation on Wednesday where he threatened to “pummel” Israel if necessary.
"Hamas is not seeking a confrontation, but if such a confrontation should arise, Hamas will pummel Israel."
Sinwar, who was appointed as Ismail Haniyeh's replacement last February, warned Israel against "taking stupid steps against Gaza", adding that "the Palestinian resistance has the ability to respond to that." He also made it clear that Hamas was prepared for a confrontation and claimed that the organization's strength was greater than it was during Operation Protective Edge in 2014.
"Israel is not launching a new war against Gaza, which stresses its fear of the unknown that awaits it in Gaza."
The last war Hamas won against Israel.

Sweden: Man in court , for killing a father who refused to murder his wife and daughters, because they shook the hands of men.

(Grycksbo)  A 50 year old man is currently in court in Sweden on charges of murdering one of his male relatives for offending his honour.

It transpires that the thug (A clan leader no less)  in the dock, took offence with how  in 2015 the murdered man’s daughters, greeted young men  who had just completed a marathon with handshakes. He had a chat with their father and demanded he kill them in which to regain the family honour. He refused and In reply he cut off all contact with the older family member.

In May this year a number of people went to the popular fishing lake Stensjön outside Grycksbo in Dalarna. During the evening a fight occurred and the father of the two girls who the clan leader had demanded he sort out his daughters for honour was found dead after been stabbed in the neck with a pair of scissors. According to the accused, the younger man attacked him when he left the party and whilst searching for a rock in which to defend himself with, he just happened to find a pair of scissors. Naturally he is claiming he is the victim here, however when the wife of the dead man was interviewed by the police she revealed a motive for the killing:
"It is part of the culture of honour that the family head / clan leader thinks something and leaves an assignment to the father or brother and if they do not perform the assignment, you are killing the father / brother because they have not taken care of themselves,"
That angle has also been repeated by the Prosecutor Gun-Britt Strøm who has confirmed that the murder appears to be honorary-related.

The trail continues.
