Uganda busca a supuesto terrorista alemán de Al-Shabab por atentado en 2012 en Kenia

La Información.com:

La Policía de Uganda advirtió hoy de la entrada en el país de un supuesto terrorista de nacionalidad alemana, Ahmed Khaled Mueller, reclamado por Kenia desde 2012 al sospechar que tenía información sobre posibles ataques del grupo radical islamista somalí Al Shabab en sus fronteras.

La alerta sobre la entrada del miembro de Al Shabab en Uganda se lanzó hoy, una semana después del final del ataque por los fundamentalistas a un centro comercial de Nairobi en el que murieron más de 70 personas.

Kenia inició la búsqueda de Mueller el pasado año al sospechar que tenía información sobre supuestos planes de la guerrilla somalí para atacar en suelo keniano.

La Policía ugandesa recibió hoy información “de fuentes muy fiables” sobre la entrada del supuesto terrorista alemán este martes en el país, fronterizo con el oeste de Kenia.

Jefe talibán se atribuye el asesinato de un general paquistaní

LWJ:

Mullah Fazlullah, a senior leader in the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, has claimed credit for the assassination of a senior Pakistani Army general in a roadside bombing in the northwestern district of Dir last month. Fazlullah appeared in an official Taliban video, which also showed footage of the attack on the general’s vehicle.

The videotape was released on Sept. 29 on the Facebook page of Umar Media, the official propaganda arm of the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, and was obtained and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group. The video features an interview with Fazlullah and details the Sept. 15 IED attack that killed Major General Sanaullah Niazi, the commander of Pakistani Army troops in Swat, along with a lieutenant colonel who commanded the 33 Baloch Regiment, and a soldier. The Long War Journal noted on the day of the attack that Fazlullah had very likely orchestrated it.

(…)

Fazlullah, who is also known as Mullah Radio for his radical sermons broadcast throughout the northwest, ranks among the top leaders of the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan. He has vowed to continue the fight to regain control of Swat and the surrounding districts. He is one of the most extreme commanders in a group filled with extremists. He was one of the first leaders to have opposed polio vaccinations. Last year, he proudly ordered the assassination of Malala Yousufzai, the young schoolgirl who passionately spoke out against the Taliban in Swat, and accused her of violating sharia, or Islamic law.

Fazlullah is also closely tied to al Qaeda. When he openly ruled Swat from 2007 to 2009, he said al Qaeda fighters were welcome there and that training camps were in operation. One of his top deputies, Ibn Amin, also served as a leader of one of six known brigades in al Qaeda’s Lashkar-al-Zil, or Shadow Army. Amin was killed in a US drone strike in Khyber in December 2007.

ABC:

 In a rare move, the Commandant of the Marine Corps has recommended that two senior Marine generals retire because of their failure to adequately protect a large base in southern Afghanistan from a Taliban attack last September in which two Marines were killed and six Marine jets were destroyed.

Eight other Marines and eight British troops were also injured in the attack.

The recommendation from Gen. James Amos that two Marine generals responsible for the base retire in effect means they are being fired.

According to a Marine Corps press release, Amos decided on the course of action after reviewing a four-month investigation conducted by U.S. Central Command into the Sept. 14, 2012 attack.

Under the cover of darkness, 15 Taliban fighters dressed in U.S. Army uniforms cut a hole into the perimeter fence of Camp Bastion, the sprawling joint U.S.-British base located in southern Afghanistan’s Helmand Province. The Taliban fighters then snuck onto the base’s flight-line, where they began to destroy Marine aircraft housed at the base, eventually destroying six Marine Harrier fighter jets and severely damaging two others. It was the largest loss of U.S. aircraft in the entire war in Afghanistan.

The two officers Amos is holding accountable for the attack are Maj. Gen. Charles M. Gurganus, the top Marine commander in Afghanistan at the time of the attack, and Maj. Gen. Gregg A. Sturdevant, who headed Marine aviation units there.

During the four-day siege in Kenya’s Westgate shopping Mall, al-Shabaab jihadists raped, tortured, beheaded, dismembered, castrated, gouged out eyes, amputated fingers and hung hostages on hooks from the roof. According to a forensic medical doctor, “They [the al-Shabaab attackers] removed eyes, ears, noses. Fingers are cut by pliers, noses ripped by pliers”… “Those are not allegations. Those are f****** truths,”… “They removed balls, eyes, ears, nose. They get your hand and sharpen it like a pencil then they tell you to write your name with the blood. They drive knives inside a child’s body. Actually, if you look at all the bodies, unless those ones that were escaping, fingers are cut by pliers, the noses are ripped by pliers.” There were also reports that hostages were beheaded and their heads thrown out of the windows.

RT:

El director del Colegio de Agricultura, en el estado norteño de Yobe, confirmó que supuestos milicianos islamistas tirotearon el colegio la noche del sábado cuando los alumnos dormían y que al menos han muerto 50 personas. También informó que los atacantes prendieron fuego a las aulas del colegio, del que alrededor de mil estudiantes lograron escapar.

Medios nigerianos informan que se siguen recuperando cadáveres de las aulas, pasillos y de los alrededores del colegio.

El ataque se produce en medio de una escalada de violencia que afecta al norte de Nigeria, donde opera Boko Haram. Este sábado fuentes oficiales nigerianas informaron que en dos ataques separados perpetrados por este grupos en la ciudad de Gamboru habían muerto 27 personas. A mediados de septiembre  unos 150 milicianos murieron en un choque con la fuerzas de seguridad de Nigeria, que registraron un centenar de bajas.
Las escuelas, que los islamistas radicalizados consideran centros de cultura occidental, son a menudo en objetivos de sus ataques. El pasado mes de julio extremistas islámicos tirotearon y quemaron vivos a 42 estudiantes y a un profesor en un ataque contra un internado en el noreste de Nigeria. El grupo Boko Haram apoyó el ataque pero no asumió la responsabilidad del mismo.

Dos iglesias católicas quemadas en Racca (Siria) por los rebeldes

chiesa-distrutta-300x225Me entero por el blog italiano No Cristianophobia: los fundamentalistas han destrozado las estatuas y las cruces de la Iglesia greco-católica de la Anunciación y de la Iglesia armenia de los Santos Mártires, poniendo en ellas la bandera islamista. La denuncia ha partido del Observatorio sirio de los Derechos Humanos.  Como escribe la Agencia AsiaNews.it, “los grupos fundamentalistas rechazan la autoridad del Consejo Nacional y quieren la sharia”, mientras el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU en Nueva York, “se ha reunido para dictar una resolución común bajo la consigna de la eliminación de las armas químicas de parte de Assad”.

GMBW:

 An Egyptian court on Monday banned the Muslim Brotherhood from carrying out any activities in the country and ordered the seizure of the group’s funds, widening a campaign to debilitate the Islamist movement of deposed President Mohamed Mursi.

‘The court bans the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood organization and its non-governmental organization and all the activities that it participates in and any organization derived from it,’ said the presiding judge Mohammed al-Sayed.

The court ordered the government to seize the Brotherhood’s funds and administer its frozen assets.
