    THE number of potential terrorists being watched in the UK has swelled to nearly 3,500 - but our security services are using powers to monitor them LESS than they did a year ago, Express.co.uk can reveal. The around 3,000 potential terrorists monitored since 2015 has grown after the return of UK-born people who left to fight with ISIS. Around 400 ISIS-trained fighters are believed to have returned from war zones in Syria and Iraq. Despite being on red alert for more attacks on home soil like today's carnage in Westminster, new statistics show the number of arrests, stop and searches,...

    A volley of U.S. cruise missiles had barely been launched into Syria before the Internet filled up with fact-free theories about the real reason for an international crisis. A popular one on the right-most fringes: The U.S. government actually carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria last week — a “false flag” to trick President Trump into retaliating, thus entangling himself in a foreign war. A slightly more convoluted strain on the left: Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump — distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russia by provoking...

    What a laugh-riot Raul Castro must be having at the expense of his chum and ally Bashar Assad!Best we can tell from recent news, using poison gas against villagers, massacring children and sponsoring terror groups will get a dictator’s fiefdom bombed by U.S. planes on the orders of U.S. presidents.Fine. Now let’s take these airstrike-inducing items seriatim and see how they apply to the poison-gas-wielding, children-massacring, terror-sponsoring dictator who dwells—not thousands of miles distant from our shores in a barbarous medieval pesthole!—but on our very doorstep in a nation formerly richer and more modernized than much of Europe and that...

    The Pontiff acknowledges that members of the clergy "succumbed to hatred and violence" as Rwandan government accuses Church of still protecting the guilty. Caption -- Pope Francis has apologised for the Catholic Church's role in the Rwandan genocide (Photo: Getty) Pope Francis has asked for forgiveness for the "sins and failings of the Church" during Rwanda's 1994 genocide, saying he hoped his apology would help heal the African state's wounds. But Rwanda's government indicated it felt the apology did not go far enough, saying the local Church was still complicit in protecting the perpetrators of the genocide. At a meeting...

    WACO — The first trial over a Central Texas gunfight involving rival motorcycle gangs that left nine people dead, 20 others hurt and more than 150 bikers charged is now set for April, 23 months after the 2015 shootout. "In complex cases, it's not uncommon for the trial to occur 18 months to two years after the alleged incident occurred," 54th District Judge Matt Johnson, who will preside over some of the trials, told the Waco Tribune-Herald. "It's not like we had a shortage of cases before Twin Peaks came along," 19th District Judge Ralph Strother, who also will handle...

    CHARLESTON, S.C. — After nearly a week of painful testimony that vividly re-created the massacre at this city’s famed Mother Emanuel church, it took jurors about two hours Thursday to convict Dylann Roof in his federal hate crimes trial. Roof was charged with 33 counts in his federal indictment. He was found guilty on every single one. Family members of the nine parishioners gunned down last year nodded silently as each charge was read aloud. Some held hands, their eyes shut tightly, as each guilty verdict was announced in the courtroom just a mile from the church. With Roof’s guilt...

    In a new issue of their English-language Dabiq magazine, ISIS battles against the term "senseless violence" being used to describe their attacks, stressing that all of their crimes make perfect jihad sense.One of the articles in the 82-page "Break the Cross" issue, titled "Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You," notes that "shortly following the blessed attack on a sodomite, Crusader nightclub by the mujahid Omar Mateen, American politicians were quick to jump into the spotlight and denounce the shooting, declaring it a hate crime, an act of terrorism, and an act of senseless violence.""A hate crime?

    Sonboly is no Iranian. He is Syrian. His Facebook page showed that he is pro Turkey’s Islamists. That, plus he had a record with the Interpol and was being watched. He is also not a teenager as they show us, but an adult as videos showed. What the reader should conclude after reading is this: why is the eye witnesses account (which is substantiated by material evidence) contradicts media reports

Then his name changed to Ali David Sonboly (which sounds western) when his real name is Ali Daud Sonboly/Sunbuli which is an Arabic name (better pronounced Sunbuli) and has an exclusively Arabic meaning: ‘from the wheat kernel’.

The tourist, named as Lucy Nesbitt-Comaskey, told Sky News: 'Maybe this is awful and maybe a bit selfish but it did spoil our shopping trip.

    FBI agents have questioned employees at a Florida mall in an attempt to trace the steps of homegrown terrorist Omar Mateen after he killed 49 people at the gay nightclub Pulse. Investigators visited CityPlace in West Palm Beach, Florida, about 170 miles south of Pulse, and asked employees at a movie theater along with two restaurants whether they had seen Mateen. WSVN also reported Mateen had visited the mall as recently as five days before the mass shooting. Mateen had visited the shopping mall five times between February 25 of this year to June 6, less than a week before...

    English title: Orlando massacre was "revenge," not terrorism, says man who claims he was gunman's lover Mateen was "very sweet" and liked to be "cuddled," the man told Univision. But he was upset about the way gay men responded to him. Omar Mateen, the Muslim gunman who committed the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, was "100 percent" gay and bore a grudge against Latino men because he felt used by them, according to a man who says he was his lover for two months. “I’ve cried like you have no idea. But the thing that makes me want to tell...

    ORLANDO — After an initial burst of fire between Omar Mateen and a security guard at the Pulse nightclub, a group of five or six police officers arrived on the scene within minutes, broke through a large glass window and entered the club as the killing of 49 people was underway inside, according to a Belle Isle, Fla., police officer who was among the first responders. Officer Brandon Cornwell, 25, said the ad-hoc team spent the first seconds in the dimly lit club “trying to locate exactly where the shooter was — we kept hearing people scream and shots fired.”...

    In the wake of the Orlando shooting at a gay nightclub a week ago, the LGBT community is rejecting Hillary Clinton’s gun-grabbing policy, turning out in droves in support of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee — Donald Trump. And in turning their backs on Clinton, they’re also rejecting President Barack Obama’s anti-gun narrative after the slaughter, and supporting Donald Trump’s message that we must combat radical Islam to prevent future such attacks. “I knew I had to fully support Trump because he called out the threat for what it was — radical Islamic terrorism,” Stephen Zieman, 23, a gay Trump...

    For Negrete and other Latinos in the LGBTQ community, the Sunday massacre, which President Barack Obama has recently called an act of terror and a hate crime, shined a spotlight on an issue that has not been discussed enough: the targeting of people of color within the community. “A Latinx transwoman was shot the other day in Santa Ana,” said Negrete. Latinx is a term being used with increasing frequency on social media, replacing the “o” in Latino with “x,” making the masculine identifier gender-neutral.

    Newly obtained information from the Orlando nightclub shooter's school and work records show he caused trouble at an early age and, as an adult, became a proficient marksman with consistently high scores in tests. As far back as 1992, when he was in elementary school, teachers described Omar Mateen as a “disruptive influence” or “classroom disruption” and cited him for “repeat misconduct,” using profanity and even striking another student, according to St. Lucie County school records obtained by ABC News. He had two marks on the records during the 1992-1993 school year. Between 1996 and 1998, when Mateen was in...

In the clip, Mateen is seen wearing his security uniform and standing guard near a beach where workers are cleaning up oil that has washed on shore after the BP oil spill. When...
