TERRORISTS

Terrorist Threats

July 21st

The Islamic State flag has been found in the room of an Afghan refugee suspected of being behind the horrific axe attack on a train in Germany.

A 17-year-old Afghan refugee is understood to have begun shouting “Allahu Akbar” while storming the train at a station on the outskirts of Wuerzburg, in southern Germany.

Police say that 18 are injured, while the axeman severely wounded four. He was shot dead by police shortly afterwards.

Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said it was too early to speculate about the motives of the attacker, who he said was believed to have been living in a home for unaccompanied minors in Ochsenfurt, near the city of Wuerzburg.

Speaking to German TV this morning, he revealed the hand-painted ISIS flag was found among the teenager’s belongings at his room.

But the full horror of the attack is immediately apparent from images inside and around the blood-splattered carriages.

One image shows the floor of the train covered in blood. Other images show a small pool of blood on the train station platform.

The attack is likely to deepen worries about so-called “lone wolf” attacks in Europe.

It could also increase political pressure on German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who welcomed hundreds of thousands of migrants to Germany over the past year.

“The attacker appears to have been a 17-year-old Afghan who has been living in Ochsenfurt for some time,” Herrmann said.

He suddenly attacked passengers with a knife and an axe, critically injuring several. Some of them may now be fighting for their lives.”

Police spokesman Fabian Hench said four people had been severely wounded and a fourth slightly injured. Several others were treated for shock.

The attacker fled the train when it halted at a station on the outskirts of Wuerzburg.

Herrmann said the man had tried to attack police when he was confronted and had been shot dead.

German media, citing a spokesman for the Bavarian interior ministry, reported that the man had shouted “Allahu Akbar” during the attack, but neither Herrmann nor Hench said they could confirm that.

“There are witnesses that suggest there may be an Islamic background to this but that is far from clear at this point,” Herrmann said.

terrorist Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a wave of bomb attacks that killed at least 140 people in strongholds of Syrian president Bashar Assad.

At least 83 people were reported to have died in four blasts in the southern Damascus suburb of Sayyida Zeinab.

A suicide car bomber and two other suicide bombers were behind yesterday’s attacks, which also left 178 people wounded, according to London-based monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. 

The bombs went off near Syria’s  holiest Shia Muslim shrine, which is said to contain the grave of the Prophet Mohammed’s granddaughter.

A local resident, Muhannad, told Reuters that he was sleeping in his home when he heard an

Explosion.

“A man detonated the bomb on his body,” he said. “Another five to seven minutes later, a second man detonated his body bomb there. I was right here looking at him.”

Earlier yesterday, 57 people — mostly civilians — were killed in a double car bombing in the city of Homs. 

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks via the Telegram messaging app. The bombings were condemned by UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, who said that some of the victims were children.

The attacks targeted areas dominated by Muslim minorities reviled by the Sunni radicals of the terrorist group.

The latest violence is a setback to efforts to end the five-year war, which has claimed more than 250,000 lives.

YOLA, Nigeria (AP) — Hundreds of bodies — too many to count — remain strewn in the bush in Nigeria from an Islamic extremist attack that Amnesty International suggested Friday is the "deadliest massacre" in the history of Boko Haram.

Mike Omeri, the government spokesman on the insurgency, said fighting continued Friday for Baga, a town on the border with Chad where insurgents seized a key military base on Jan. 3 and attacked again on Wednesday.

"Security forces have responded rapidly, and have deployed significant military assets and conducted airstrikes against militant targets," Omeri said in a statement.

District head Baba Abba Hassan said most victims are children, women and elderly people who could not run fast enough when insurgents drove into Baga, firing rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles on town residents.

"The human carnage perpetrated by Boko Haram terrorists in Baga was enormous," Muhammad Abba Gava, a spokesman for poorly armed civilians in a defense group that fights Boko Haram, told The Associated Press.

He said the civilian fighters gave up on trying to count all the bodies. "No one could attend to the corpses and even the seriously injured ones who may have died by now," Gava said.

An Amnesty International statement said there are reports the town was razed and as many as 2,000 people killed.

If true, "this marks a disturbing and bloody escalation of Boko Haram's ongoing onslaught," said Daniel Eyre, Nigeria researcher for Amnesty International.

In Washington, U.S. State Department Spokesman Jen Psaki condemned the attacks.

"We urge Nigeria and its neighbors to take all possible steps to address the urgent threat of Boko Haram. Even in the face of these horrifying attacks, terrorist organizations like Boko Haram must not distract Nigeria from carrying out credible and peaceful elections that reflect the will of the Nigerian people," Psaki said in a statement.

The previous bloodiest day in the uprising involved soldiers gunning down unarmed detainees freed in a March 14, 2014, attack on Giwa military barracks in Maiduguri city. Amnesty said then that satellite imagery indicated more than 600 people were killed that day.

The 5-year insurgency killed more than 10,000 people last year alone, according to the Washington-based Council on Foreign Relations. More than a million people are displaced inside Nigeria and hundreds of thousands have fled across its borders into Chad, Cameroon and Nigeria.

Emergency workers said this week they are having a hard time coping with scores of children separated from their parents in the chaos of Boko Haram's increasingly frequent and deadly attacks.

Just seven children have been reunited with parents in Yola, capital of Adamawa state, where about 140 others have no idea if their families are alive or dead, said Sa'ad Bello, the coordinator of five refugee camps in Yola.

He said he was optimistic that more reunions will come as residents return to towns that the military has retaken from extremists in recent weeks.

Suleiman Dauda, 12, said he ran into the bushes with neighbors when extremists attacked his village, Askira Uba, near Yola last year.

"I saw them kill my father, they slaughtered him like a ram. And up until now I don't know where my mother is," he told The Associated Press at Daware refugee camp in Yola.
