Grupo terrorista yemení asesina un hombre “sospechoso de ser homosexual”

Opposing views:

Suspected Islamist militants shot and killed a Yemeni man Thursday because they believed he was gay, according to law officials.

One of two men riding a motorcycle shot at the young Yemeni man outside his house in Huta, located in the capital of Lahij province.

The gunmen were both able to escape before police arrived.

Police have blamed the shooting on the al-Qaeda affiliated group called Ansar al-Sharia.

Police reported that this was the sixth shooting since the start of last year related to an al-Qaeda affiliated group. Similar killings have occurred in Abyan and Aden.

The group is currently imposing Islamic law in areas of Abyan where it has greater influence.

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.

Weeks after jihadist Syrian rebels attacked the Christian village of Ma’loula, Islamist militias have attacked the historic Syrian Christian town of Saidnaya, according to a Fides news agency report.

“This is banditry, but it is also a vendetta against Christians,” said a religious-order priest. “They are targeted attacks that have the effect of creating confusion and fear among civilians.”

“Mi vida de infierno en un harén afgano”

Quien escribe esto es Phyllis Chesler. Imprescindible:

In fact, I have reason to be paranoid.

I discover that mother-in-law has instructed the servants to stop boiling my drinking water. Because the sewage system consists of open irrigation ditches that are used as public bathrooms and for drinking water, I contract dysentery.

Perhaps she thinks I am already “Afghan enough” to withstand any and all germs. Perhaps she wants me dead.

She then begins her conversion campaign. She gives me prayer rugs and prayer beads and urges me to convert to Islam.

If I don’t, I think, will she continue her campaign to sicken and kill me?

The next day she barges into my room with a servant and confiscates my precious hoard of canned goods.

“Our food isn’t good enough for her — she eats from cans,” she says.

I am her captive, her prisoner; she, my jailer, might treat me more decently if I find ways to please her. This is difficult for me to write about but I did it. I repeat the words: “There is one God, Allah, and Mohammed was his prophet.”

I am now a Muslim — at least in my mother-in-law’s eyes — but that still isn’t enough for her. When she is angry at me, she spits at me. She calls me “Yahud” or “Jew.” When I complain to my husband, he dismisses me as being dramatic.

I must escape. Sigue leyendo

Esta noticia es de hace unos días, pero merece la pena bloguear sobre ella:

At least 142 corpses were found in a northeastern Nigerian town after an attack by suspected members of the Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, local officials said.

“Yesterday alone 87 corpses were evacuated from the road and bushes,” Saidu Yakubu, a spokesman for the Borno State Environmental Protection Agency, said yesterday in a statement handed to reporters in Benisheik town.

Suspected militants dressed in military uniforms attacked the town on Sept. 17, burning at least 100 houses and shops in the raid, according to Garba Ngamdu, the head of labor affairs in the Borno state government. The raid followed a Sept. 7 attack on the town that left 11 civilians dead, according to local residents.

FrontPage Magazine:

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.

Antena 3:

Horas después de que el Ministerio del Interior keniano anunciara que las fuerzas de seguridad se habían hecho con el control del Westgate, nuevas explosiones y tiroteos se han escuchado en el interior del complejo de lujo en el marco de la ofensiva final lanzada por las fuerzas de seguridad para expulsar a la secta islamista Al Shabaab.

(…)

La ministra de Exteriores de Kenia, Amina Mohamed, ha confirmado que entre los asaltantes del Westgate hay extranjeros y ha detallado que se trata de “dos o tres estadounidenses” de origen árabe y de “una británica” que “ya había hecho esto varias veces”.

Mohamed ha insistido en que “Al Shabaab ha estado trabajando con otros en otras partes del mundo para aumentar su capacidad y llegar a sitios donde antes no llegaba”. Interrogada sobre si Al Qaeda está implicada, ha contestado: “Absolutamente”.
