    The twin-island Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago would seem to be the last place to raise alarm bells over the threat of radical Islam. Trinidad was briefly catapulted into the spotlight in June 2007 when reports surfaced that one of the suspects linked to an alleged plot to attack New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport was a Trinidadian national and that the suspects reached out to Yasin Abu Bakr, the leader of Jamaat al-Muslimeen (JAM, Association of Muslims), for assistance in executing their plan. JAM is an enigmatic Trinidadian Muslim militant group that is implicated in violence,...

    CANBERRA, Nov 8 (Reuters) - An Australian Muslim cleric who said Osama bin Laden was a "great man" has been named by police as the spiritual leader of a group of 16 men charged on Tuesday with planning a terrorist attack in Australia. Abdul Nacer Benbrika, also known as Abu Bakr, has long been monitored by Australian authorities and grabbed headlines in August after he praised bin Laden, blamed for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. He is a self-styled leader of a fundamentalist Islamic group of young followers in the suburbs of Australia's second-biggest city, Melbourne....

    Caribbean: Islamic radicalism on the rise? POLICE used an excavator to dig up the floor of an office adjoining a mosque near Port of Spain, Trinidad's capital, in a search for weapons. The dig was fruitless, but elsewhere in the mosque complex they found a gun, a grenade and ammunition. On November 11th they charged the mosque's imam, Yasin Abu Bakr, with firearms offences. He already faced charges of sedition and a retrial for conspiracy to murder. Six other mosques were raided, though nothing more was found. Rather than Islamic terrorism, Trinidad would seem to be facing a simple crime...

    Afghan authorities and NATO-led peacekeepers have arrested a commander for a renegade warlord thought to be fighting alongside Taliban and al Qaeda remnants. Ghulam Rabbani Abu Bakr, from the Hizb-e-Islami faction of Afghanistan's one-time Prime Minister Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, was arrested in an early morning raid in Kabul. Squadron Leader Paul Rice, a spokesman for the International Security Assistance Force, says this is a significant arrest. Hekmatyar's faction, which devastated Kabul with rockets in the early 1990s killing tens of thousands of people, has been linked to a series of attacks in the city since the fall of the Taliban in...

    Ten years ago, a group of black Muslims tried to overthrow the democratically-elected government of the Caribbean twin-island state of Trinidad and Tobago. One-hundred-and-fourteen members of the Jamaat-al-Muslimeen group, mostly young black men, took over the island's parliament; held the prime minister and some other members of his cabinet hostage; and stormed the state-run television station. For many, inside and outside the Caribbean, the 27 July crisis came as a total shock. The English-speaking Caribbean islands had vowed, following the 1983 American-led invasion of Grenada, never to see democratically-elected structures topple ever again. Armed raid The crisis began with the...
