The terror transporters of India

Rs 200 -- That's all that terrorists have to shell out to infiltrate into India. Along the border area of Bihar and West Bengal, the business of transporting terrorists is flourishing at a menacing pace. Intelligence Bureau sources told that there are over 500 persons involved in this business. The IB, which has been keeping a watch on their activity, says that these people charge between Rs 100 to Rs 200. Very recently, the West Bengal Police had taken into their custody an operative named Kamal Hassan, who hailed from Madhubani in Bihar. He was brought down to Bengaluru as the police felt that he had a role to play in the Chinnaswamy stadium blasts, which were orchestrated by the Indian Mujahideen. Whether Hassan was involved with these blasts or not is something that the police are yet to verify. Hassan is just one among the many who are involved in this business. According to the IB, most of these are unemployed youth who more often than not transported terror

Pirates: Too close for comfort

Earlier this week, families of seven Indian seafarers on board the Italian flag vessel MT Enrico Levoll heaved a sigh of relief. The men had been held hostage for four months after their ship was hijacked by Somali pirates on December 27 last year. They were lucky. Pirates in Somalia are still holding seven other Indians of a total of 15 Indian crewmembers on board the MV Asphalt Venture captive. The ship was hijacked on September 28, 2010 and released after ransom was paid eight months later, but the pirates didn’t let the Indians go. They want 10 Somali pirates to be released for each Indian. India currently has 120 Somali pirates in captivity in Taloja jail in Navi Mumbai. The Indian Navy captured the men in four separate encounters in 2011. Jail Superintendent SB Chavre said the pirates keep to themselves and are not a menace. They are a danger when in their element, though. So far in 2012, the Somali pirates have hijacked 11 ships and are holding 173 crewmembers hostage, a

Gadchiroli Attack: Police Registers Case Under UAPA

| Police have registered a case under stringent provisions of the anti-terror law UAPA against Naxals suspected to have carried out the deadly landmine blast which killed 13 CRPF personnel in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli region recently. Tracking those responsible for the March 27 blast that had ripped off a CRPF vehicle carrying 40 troops from Pushtola to Gatta for an operational duty, security forces are making efforts to apprehend top Naxal commander Vikram. Vikram, according to top security sources, is the commander of the Chatgaon Naxal guerrilla squad which operates along the Maharashtra-Chhattisgarh border. He is the mastermind of the IED blast, they said. The Gadchiroli police has registered a case in connection with the blast under at least eight sections, including 302 (murder) and 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon) of the IPC, along with sections of the Explosives Act, the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and the Bombay Police Act

10 suspected Taliban reported killed during separate actions

KABUL (AIP): Afghan and foreign troops killed 10 suspected Taliban during operations conducted in different regions of the country, interior ministry said Friday (April 27), a claim rejected by Taliban as false. Fourteen Taliban were also captured and another wounded during the operations conducted throughout the past 24 hours in Helmand, Wardak and Khost province, the interior ministry said in a statement. It said the combined force also recovered nine Ak-47 rifles, a heavy machine gun, four landmines, seven hand grenades, 20 kg of explosive materials, two suicide vests and a motorcycle. Taliban rejected the interior ministry claim and said they did not suffer any worth mentioning damage in these provinces. “Contrary to this, Taliban caused casualties to a large number of combined troops and destroyed several vehicles during 28 attacks mounted against Afghan and foreign troops over the past 24 hours in Badghis, Zabul, Kandahar, Logar, Laghman, Ghazni, Wardak, Kunar, Paktia, Khost, Sa


The actions of two men who sent parcel bombs to Celtic manager Neil Lennon and other prominent figures connected to the football club were described as "incomprehensible" as they were jailed for five years each on Friday. Trevor Muirhead, 44, and Neil McKenzie, 42, were jailed for conspiring to assault Lennon, former MSP Trish Godman and the late QC Paul McBride, as well as people at the republican organisation Cairde Na hEireann, by sending devices they believed were capable of exploding and causing severe injury. McKenzie, from Saltcoats, Ayrshire, was also sentenced to 18 months for a separate charge of posting a hoax bomb to Lennon at Celtic Park to make him believe it was likely to explode, which will run concurrently with his five-year sentence. Muirhead, from Kilwinning, also Ayrshire, was cleared of the charge with a not proven verdict. Both men were originally accused of a more serious charge of conspiring to murder their targets but it was thrown out a day

Courthouse bomb in Libya's Benghazi injures one

(Reuters) - A bomb exploded at a courthouse in the Libyan city of Benghazi on Friday, wounding one person and damaging surrounding buildings in a fresh challenge to the post-Gaddafi government's struggle to restore stability. A security official said three packages of explosives were planted by unknown suspects at a wall of the court. The blasts shattered windows of a nearby hospital, injuring one person inside. The eastern city of Benghazi, the cradle of the county's revolution, has simmered with dissatisfaction since Muammar Gaddafi was ousted last August. Residents complain they have been all but forgotten by the new leadership in Tripoli. In late January, protesters stormed the local headquarters of the ruling National Transitional Council (NTC), smashing its windows with stones and metal bars. On April 10, a home-made bomb was thrown at a convoy carrying the head of the United Nations mission to Libya but no one was hurt. Hampered by the lack of an effective nation

Witness: Man hit by cluster bomb in Sri Lanka war

By RAVI NESSMAN, Associated Press – 10 minutes ago NEW DELHI (AP) — A Sri Lankan man was wounded in the final months of the country's bloody civil war by an unexploded cluster bomblet that tore into his leg and buried itself in the gash, a medical worker who saw the injury told The Associated Press on Friday. The revelation, along with a photograph that purports to show the wound, added further credence to accusations cluster munitions had been used during the final months of the war. Many of the thousands wounded in the government offensive against ethnic Tamil rebels in northern Sri Lanka also had burns consistent with those caused by incendiary white phosphorus bombs, the medical worker said. He spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear of reprisals from the Sri Lankan government. The accusation is likely to increase pressure for an international war crimes investigation into the final, bloody stage of the quarter-century civil war that ended in 2009 when the government

Four bombs explode in Ukraine city

Kiev - Four bombs exploded at short intervals in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk on Friday in what authorities said amounted to an “act of terrorism”, wounding 27 people, including nine children. President Viktor Yanukovich said the blasts, from bombs planted in rubbish bins, represented “a challenge ... to the whole country.” The authorities were considering how to respond “appropriately”, news agencies quoted him as saying. The first blast occurred at a tram stop at 11:50 a.m. (0850 GMT), wounding 13 people and shattering the windows of a nearby tram and car. The second explosion came 30 minutes later next to a cinema, injuring 11 people, nine of them children, the Emergencies Ministry said in a statement. The third blast followed shortly afterwards next to a park, injuring 2 people, it said. It was unclear whether there were any injuries from the fourth explosion which also took place in the downtown area. Police said the blasts had been caused by explosive devices

Nine dead in Damascus suicide bomb - Syrian TV

BEIRUT | Fri Apr 27, 2012 6:08pm IST (Reuters) - A suicide bomber killed nine people and wounded 20 outside a central Damascus mosque on Friday, Syrian state television said, in another blow to a peace plan that the United Nations says President Bashar al-Assad has failed to honour. The blast ripped through worshippers at the Zain al-Abideen mosque, which was under heavy security for Friday prayers, often a launchpad for anti-Assad protests, opposition activists said. State media said security officials were among the wounded. "We had been trying to go pray in the area but they stopped us at a checkpoint. Security weren't letting us in because there are usually protests there," one anti-Assad activist told Reuters in neighbouring Lebanon. "Then we heard the blast. It was so loud and then ambulances came rushing past us," the activist added. "I could see a few body parts and pieces of flesh on the road. The front of a restaurant looked destroyed. Peo

Calcutta ‘link’ to Maoists’ arms

NISHIT DHOLABHAI New Delhi, April 26: Sadanala Ramakrishna, the Maoist tech wizard arrested in Calcutta two months ago, has allegedly revealed how the Bengal capital was a centre for manufacturing arms and spares and supplying them deep into rebel territory in central India. A team led by Ramakrishna, 60, bought hardware such as alternator motors, pipes, bars and plates from shops in Canning Street and Netaji Subhas Road (near Brabourne Road) and turned them into munitions and weapons parts, security agency sources said. The rebel leader has also allegedly told his interrogators how his team sent millions of rupees in cash from Howrah station to Mumbai for their colleagues to buy necessary hardware for the Bengal arms-making units. Ramakrishna lived under the alias Vivek Sharma in a flat at Mounik apartments in Birati, which he had bought for Rs 10.5 lakh by producing a fake PAN card “prepared and given by the party”, the sources said.

Hostage taker killed at DBN hospital

Hostage injured at DBN hospital: report Patients held hostage at DBN hospital A gunman who fired several shots at Westville Hospital in Durban on Friday has been shot dead. The man had held one woman hostage for almost four hours before she was rescued, said KwaZulu-Natal police spokesman Colonel Jay Naicker. She had sustained a gunshot wound. Initial police reports were that he had taken two hostages but police later found the second woman safe in the hospital. “After negotiating.... the guy was (still) not responding,” said Naicker. He had been holding his hostage in the hospital's kitchen. Police entered and shot him dead. It was believed the man may have been suffering from a bipolar disorder. “At approximately 7:40am, the suspect demanded to see a doctor or nurse and became impatient and began firing shots randomly,” Naicker said. Hospital staff, patients, and visitors panicked and ran in different directions for cover. Three people were injured. The h

London Police Cordon Off Buildings in Possible Hostage Incident

By Colm Heatley - Apr 27, 2012 6:12 PM GMT+0530 London police closed off an area of central London and evacuated offices amid reports an unidentified man threatening to blow himself up has taken hostages in a nearby building. Police were called at 11:59 a.m. London time today to an office building on Tottenham Court Road, Emma Taylor, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police, said in an e-mailed response to questions. The suspect has been seen throwing items out of the fifth- floor window and a 100 meter (328 feet) cordon has been put into place around the area, Taylor said in the statement. A negotiator has arrived on the scene to establish a dialog with the man, Sky News TV reported, citing police officials. The suspect appears to have objects strapped to his body that the man identified as gasoline cannisters, Sky said, citing witnesses on the scene, located between Goodge Street and Euston Road.

Maoists building weapons factories in India with help from China

If the release of Biju Janata Dal legislator Jhina Hikaka, taken hostage by Maoists in Odisha more than a month ago, comes as a relief, then the Centre and governments in the Naxal-affected states should brace for much more. For, abduction and blackmailing top the extremists' strategy in their war against the state, a secret intelligence report accessed by Headlines Today has revealed. Even as Hikaka was freed after several rounds of negotiations and 33 days of his captivity, the fate of the abducted collector of Sukma district in the neighbouring Chhattisgarh -- Alex Paul Menon -- continues to be unclear. The faces of these two men have been beamed across the country and the negotiations to keep them alive continue to make headlines. However, the relief after Hikaka's release is shadowed by a frightening reality. An interrogation report of a dreaded extremist suggests that the country should probably get used to the abductions of VIPs by the Naxals. A secret Intellige

No country for Pakistani Hindus

Pakistani Hindu refugees discover they are betrayed by India On March 26, 19-year-old Rinkle Kumari, from a village in Sindh, told Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry that she had been abducted by a man called Naveed Shah, and pleaded with the highest court to let her return to her mother. It was a brave plea. Hindu women in Pakistan are routinely kidnapped and then forced to convert if they want the respectability of marriage. They are helpless, as they have neither the numbers nor the political clout to protect themselves. As Rinkle left the court, she screamed before journalists, accusing her captors of forcible conversion, before she was hustled away by the police. The case grabbed headlines, generated impassioned editorials, and highlighted the cause of a persecuted community, the 3.5 million Hindus in Pakistan. It angered liberals in Pakistan and caused the Dawn newspaper to take a strong position on persecution of minorities. But Rinkle had dared to raise h

Gunmen shoot dead assistant village head in Narathiwat

27/04/2012 NARATHIWAT : An assistant village head was shot dead yesterday in a drive-by shooting on the Pa Phai-Cho Airong road in Cho Airong district, police said. Piak Chuenban, 40, assistant village head of Ban Tanyong Limo, was found dead near his motorcycle after being shot by a gunman riding pillion in tambon Chuap. Earlier the victim, carrying a rifle and a 9mm pistol, had driven his motorcycle from his home in Rangae district to go hunting in a nearby forest, police said. He was followed by two men on a motorcycle who fired at him with an assault rifle. One of the attackers took one of Piak's guns after shooting him and fled. Police found 10 spent cartridges near Piak's body. In Pattani's Panare district, about 300 police and military officers yesterday raided a private Islamic school in tambon Phoming. Authorities suspected the school was being used as a weapons store by insurgents. Teachers took them around the school's compound and dormitories

Pol Col Somporn said Sulkiplee Tahae, 46, was hit by bullets several times in the head and torso while driving his motorcycle to his assignment at a school. At least 10 spent cartridge shells from an M16 assault rifle and a .38 revolver were found at the scene. The attackers fled after the shooting. Police blamed insurgents. More than 5,000 people have been killed and over 8,400 hurt in the three southern border provinces and the four districts of Songkhla since violence erupted in January 2004, according to Deep South Watch -- an agency that monitors the conflict in the far South. Last month, a total of 56 people were killed and 547 wounded in insurgency-related violence in the region. Source

Thai forces kill wanted rebel in shoot-out: army

Thai security forces killed five suspected insurgents including a wanted leader during a 15-minute shoot-out in a village in the Muslim-majority deep south, the army said on Friday. About 40 soldiers, paramilitary rangers and police sealed off the village in Yala province on Thursday after a tip-off that more than a dozen suspected militants were hiding there. After an exchange of gunfire, the bodies of five men were found including Sakueri Japakiya, 38, who was believed to be a senior member of the Runda Kumpulan Kecil (RKK) insurgency group, the military said. "He was an RKK leader with seven outstanding arrest warrants.... His team specialised in ambushes," army spokesman Colonel Pramote Promin told AFP by telephone. "Local religious leaders, forensic police and civilian officials are examining the scene of the clash for more evidence." Army chief General Prayut Chan-O-Cha said this month that the country was fighting against more than 3,000 Muslim mil

Philippines says breakthrough in Muslim talks

| By Agence France-Presse The Philippines said it had brokered a "significant" agreement Tuesday with Muslim rebels on how to end a decades-long insurgency, but warned that major issues still needed to be resolved. Chief government negotiator Marvic Leonen said the breakthrough with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) was achieved during the latest round of talks in Malaysia that began a decade ago. "This marks a significant and concrete step forward by both parties in their discussions of the substantive issues in these negotiations," Leonen said. He said both sides had committed in the initial broad agreement to create a new autonomous political region that would replace an existing one that has widely been regarded as a failure. The two sides also agreed to work towards "power and resources sharing" in the proposed autonomous region, which would cover parts of the southern Philippines that the country's Muslim minority call their anc

Abduction fear still alive in post-war Sri Lanka

Fri, 27 Apr 2012 07:01:19 GMT | By Agence France-Presse The choice of vehicle was almost inevitable. While describing his terrifying abduction ordeal in Sri Lanka, political activist Premakumar Gunaratnam said his captors came in a white van. Abduction fear still alive in post-war Sri Lanka The Sri Lankan-born Australian citizen says he was grabbed by six to eight gunmen outside his house in Colombo in April, stripped and then "sexually tortured" during his detention that lasted four days. His colleague and fellow hard-left Marxist dissident Dimuthu Attygalle suffered a similar fate. He was also freed after four days in captivity, shortly after Gunaratnam was kicked out of the country. Unlike others to have disappeared since the end of the country's Tamil separatist war in May 2009, they both lived to tell their tales after diplomatic pressure from Australia. Being "white-vanned" -- it has become a verb synonymous with being abducted in Sri Lanka -- w

Hackers hit Philippines websites amid China dispute

Thu, 26 Apr 2012 11:44:32 GMT | By Agence France-Presse Philippine government websites are under heavy attack from hackers, apparently from China, amid a tense territorial dispute between the two countries in the South China Sea, officials said Thursday. While some Philippine hackers have reportedly launched retaliatory attacks, the government appealed to them for restraint, said Roy Espiritu, spokesman of the government's information technology office. "We've actually detected several attacks, including attempts at distributed denial of service," he said, in which a hacker infiltrates computers with which to attack a single target, such as a website, forcing it to shut down. "They (hackers) are probing into different (Philippine) government domains so we can't say how many attacks there are. But it is a lot," Espiritu told AFP. "The signatures (of the hackers) indicate they are from Chinese networks." Espiritu conceded this could

Blind Chinese activist 'escapes' from house arrest

Fri, 27 Apr 2012 06:09:11 GMT | By Agence France-Presse Chen Guangcheng, the blind Chinese lawyer who won global acclaim for uncovering rights abuses under China's "one child" policy, has escaped from house arrest, according to his supporters. Blind Chinese activist 'escapes' from house arrest Chen had been unable to leave his home in east China since he was released from a four-year jail sentence in September 2010. He has reportedly endured several beatings and is believed to be in poor health. "He was able to get out of his home on April 22 and his friends were alerted and escorted him to a safer location outside of (his home province of) Shandong," Bob Fu, a US-based activist in close contact with Chen, told AFP. The claim was supported by a China-based supporter of the lawyer. Fu -- a former Tiananmen Square democracy activist who fled China in 1996 after being persecuted for his religious beliefs -- was unwilling to describe the circumsta

CIA alerts Pakistan on Al Qaeda plans

| Baqir Sajjad Syed | 9 hours ago Foreign Secretary Jalil Abas Jilani and US Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Ambassador Marc Grossman are holding joint press conference at Foreign Office. — APP ISLAMABAD: As Pakistani and US officials sat down to explore the way forward in bilateral ties fraught with deep mistrust but struggled to find common ground, the CIA shared intelligence suggesting Al Qaeda planned to carry out major attacks inside Pakistan. The information was based on documents seized by US Navy SEALs during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad last year. Some of the details of the intelligence shared with Dawn revealed that before being killed in the May 2 raid, Bin Laden, along with Ayman Al-Zawahiri, who took over as Al Qaeda chief in June 2011, and other senior leaders of the terror outfit had planned to mount indiscriminate attacks on Pakistani soil. There were conflicting reports about the shared intelligence. One participant

Nigeria: Media Under Siege as Boko Haram Bombs Thisday, Sun, the Moment

27 APRIL 2012 For the first time since it began a series of deadly bomb attacks, the Boko Haram sect yesterday turned its attention to the media. It unleashed a string of coordinated attacks on three media houses in Abuja and Kaduna, killing no fewer than nine people in the process. The three media houses attacked by the bombers were the Abuja office of ThisDay Newspaper, and then The Sun and The Moment offices in Kaduna which were hit almost simultaneously by the blasts. Hardest hit was ThisDay whose office in Jabi, Abuja, was almost brought down by the impact of the blast that swept through the area at about 11:03am. Witnesses said that a suicide bomber forced his way through the back gate of the Jabi office of the media empire and rammed his black Isuzu Jeep into the main building housing the printing press and other facilities. Everything went up in flames, as the bomb went off. The impact of the blast also destroyed nearby commercial and residential buildings and caused a

Nigeria: Why We Attacked Thisday, Others - Boko Haram

27 APRIL 2012 The Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati Wal — Jihad, popularly known as Boko Haram, said yesterday that it attacked Thisday newspaper's offices in Abuja and Kaduna to send a strong message to the media that it would no longer condone reports misrepresenting it in the press, or blaming it for acts it knows nothing about. Abul Qaqa, spokesperson for the sect told Premium Times, in an exclusive interview, that his organisation was fed up with the deliberate misinformation being peddled about it in the Nigerian and foreign media. "We have repeatedly cautioned reporters and media houses to be professional and objective in their reports. This is a war between us and the Government of Nigeria; unfortunately the media have not been objective and fair in their report of the ongoing war, they chose to take side," Mr. Qaqa said. He identified three instances where he claimed his group was deliberately misrepresented by the media. The first, according to him

Tunisia: Violent Clashes Outside National TV Station After Talk of Privatizing State Media

Reporters sans Frontières (Paris) 26 APRIL 2012 Reporters Without Borders is extremely concerned about the violent clashes that took place outside the Tunis headquarters of the state-owned Télévision Nationale network on 23 and 24 April between journalists working for the network and those who had been staging a sit-in outside since 2 March to press for a purge of the state media. Tension had been fuelled by recent talk of "privatization of the public media" by Ennahda Movement leader Rached Ghannouchi and Ennahda political bureau member Ameur Laarayedh, who is a member of the Constituent Assembly. The moderate Islamist Ennahda has more seats than any other party in the assembly and its secretary-general is the current prime minister. During an interview for the Qatari daily Al-Sharq and the Omani daily Oman on 18 April, for example, Ghannouchi referred to the possibility of "taking radical measures in the news media domain including, possibly, privatizing the pub

Rwanda: Govt, Uganda to Cooperate in Fighting Terrorism

BY FRED NDOLI, 27 APRIL 2012 The police forces of Rwanda and Uganda have agreed to embark on combating emerging crimes, especially in the areas of terrorism, that have been affecting the safety and security of the citizens of both countries. The resolve was made yesterday during the signing of an agreement on bilateral cooperation between the two institutions. According to officials from the two police institutions, both countries are faced with the same challenges of negative forces and emerging crimes. The agreement was signed between Rwanda's Commissioner General of Police, Emmanuel Gasana and Lt. Gen. Kale Kayihura, Inspector General of Uganda Police. The two police chiefs and their senior officers agreed to develop mutual assistance in tracking, arresting and repatriating suspects. It is believed that some suspects who took part in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi are hiding in Uganda. Addressing the media, Kayihura said the MoU they signed involved agreements
