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.

El atentado de Nairobi y la nueva estrategia de Al-Qaeda

ZoomNews:

La nueva estrategia de Al Qaeda pasaría por instalarse en el mismo corazón de Kenia, multiplicar sus células durmientes y actuar tanto en el país como en los territorios limítrofes cuando la ocasión fuere más propicia. Para ese trabajo de infiltración contarían con la colaboración de al menos 41 ciudadanos estadounidenses, de origen somalí en su mayor parte, que habrían sido reclutados en mezquitas de Minneapolis y New Jersey. Los investigadores del FBI intentan encontrar pruebas que demuestren la participación activa o la colaboración de sus propios compatriotas, convertidos en mujahidines en el atentado de Westgate.

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.”

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.

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.
