    The weapons laden plane seized in Bangkok en route from North Korea at the weekend has been linked to two renowned East European arms traffickers by a respected Swedish think-tank in the latest twist in the mysterious saga. The Ilyushin-76 aircraft, which was found to be carrying 35 tons of weapons including rockets and grenades, was most recently registered under a company called Beibars, linked to Serbian arms dealer Tomislav Dmanjanovic. It had previously been registered with three companies identified by the US Department of the Treasury as firms controlled by the notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, according to...

    Many people believe that it's time to start refusing refugees from Syria and Iraq, as we are incapable of determining if terrorists are hiding among them. But another group of immigrants poses a serious security threat that is going ignored: Somalis. Somalia has been partially overrun by Al-Shabaab, an organization that shares ISIS's radical views, goals, and strategies. It frequently publishes videos and photos of executions of "unbelievers" or people suspected of working for the Somali authorities. According to Refugee Settlement Watch, a total of 100,000 Somali refugees have come to the United States in recent years -- 8,858 of...

    White South Africans are in grave danger; there may be a solution. Things are very bad in South Africa. When the scourge of apartheid was finally smashed to pieces in 1994, the country seemed to have a bright future ahead of it. Eight years later, in 2002, 60 percent of South Africans said life had been better under apartheid. Hard to believe — but that's how bad things were in 2002. And now they're even worse. When apartheid ended, the life expectancy in South Africa was 64, the same as in Turkey and Russia. Now it's 56, the same as...

Fadumo Husseins son, 20-year-old Guled Omar, is being held in the Ramsey County Jail. The five co-defendants are scheduled to stand trial on terror charges in February.

    Six months ago, authorities seized a cargo plane in Bangkok that contained 35 tons of North Korean military weapons. These included versions of the Chinese HN-5 man-portable air defense system, or MANPADS. The MANPADS were being shipped to Iran. The HN-5 a copy of the Soviet SA-7 is less capable than the MANPADS Iran produces on its own. Why, you ask, would Iran be importing more primitive missiles than the ones it already makes? The only conceivable answer is that Iran was planning to provide North Korean missiles to Irans proxy terrorist groups, to gain plausible deniability in case...

    (snip) Why Minneapolis? Authorities say it's linked to Minneapolis-St. Paul's large Somali community. According to The New York Times, estimates peg the local Somali population, which Minneapolis touts as the largest in the US, at roughly 30,000 people. Reports have described violent extremism as bubbling up within the local Somali community going back years, especially as a result of the 2006 conflict between Ethiopia and Somalia. At the time, much of the terrorism-recruitment issue centered on al-Shabab, the Somali-based group that would later become an Al Qaeda affiliate. The office of Minnesota's US attorney, Andrew Luger, said Wednesday that groups...

    Somali terror group Al-Shabaab could soon scrap its allegiance to Al-Qaeda and pledge loyalty to rivals ISIS instead, MailOnline has learned. Islamic State invited the east-African jihadi group to join forces with them through a propaganda video released in March - urging it to wage jihad on neighbouring Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania. Now Al-Shabaab members and sources within the Somali army suggest the invitation will be accepted and the group - which commands around 9,000 fighters - will soon extend ISIS's self-proclaimed caliphate to east-Africa. The decision comes at a time when many of Al-Shabaab's local and foreign leaders are...

The terrorists stuck mid-way through Holy Week, the most solemn period in the Christian calendar. Tonight, the Christian students were planning to celebrate the Last Supper...

    At least 14 people have been killed, but a spokesman for the jihadis said, Weve killed many people; Kenyans will be shocked when the go inside. The Muslims were freed.

The spokesman in the Ministry of Interior Mwenda Njoka named Abdirahim Abdullahi, the son of a Mandera chief, as one of the four terrorist. He was also a law graduate from the University of Nairobi. Abdullahi was positively identified by family and friends. He disappeared from Kenya in 2013 and his family and security officials suspected he had joined the Al-Shabaab.

    Somalia's Islamic extremist group al-Shabab warned Saturday of more attacks in Kenya like the assault on Garissa University College that killed 148 people. "Kenyan cities will run red with blood," said al-Shabab according to the SITE intelligence monitoring group. The Islamic militants said the attack on Garissa college was in retaliation for killings carried out by Kenyan troops fighting the rebels in Somalia. "No amount of precaution or safety measures will be able to guarantee your safety, thwart another attack or prevent another bloodbath," said al-Shabab.

    When al-Shabaab militants stormed University College of Garissa early on Thursday morning no one knew that by the end of the day 148 would be dead, constituting Kenyas deadliest terrorist attack in 17 years. What most Kenyans did know is that they had lost faith in their governments ability to keep Kenya safe from al-Shabaabs increasingly deadly presence. Since 2011, it is estimated that more than 300 people have been killed by terrorist attacks in Kenya. This is an issue of security and the government. Its not an issue that is starting nowits been an issue that has been going...

    Al-Shabaab, the Somali jihadist group responsible for yesterdays deadly attack on a prominent Mogadishu hotel, has released a graphic new video showing executions of unarmed civilians identified as Christians by the AhlulBayt News Agency at an unnamed location on the Somali coast. Some of victims in the video titled In Remembrance 2, are forced to kneel at the oceans edge before being shot to death from behind. Others are marched out into the sea, with jihadists standing on an elevated sand dune at the beachs edge firing automatic weapons at them in the distance. Water splashes as bullets...

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali should be the perfect feminist hero. In theory, she fits the role on multiple levels: Shes an escapee from an abusive patriarchy. Shes an African immigrant who made her own way in a Western country, the Netherlands. Shes a fierce advocate for womens rights. Shes a target for deadly violence by angry men who want to shut her up. She left her religion and became a scourge of its repressive practices. Except for the blemish on her record: Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a dissident from the wrong religion. Raised a Muslim in Somalia, subjected to genital mutilation...

The African Union mission to Somalia, AMISOM, confirmed to Al Jazeera that there had been an explosion followed by gunfire at the Makka al-Mukarama hotel on Friday. An AMISOM spokesman said al-Shabab fighters got out of a car that then exploded. The armed men then entered the hotel and gunfire was heard. The fighters took hostages, the spokesman added.

    ... Two years ago, Colonel John Steed, a former military attache to the British embassy in neighbouring Kenya, began his own personal mission to save those who were dubbed the forgotten hostages - the 100-plus sailors who still languished in pirate custody as of 2013. Drawn exclusively from poorer nations, their stories are a dark mirror image of that of Captain Phillips, the hijacked American whose rescue by US Navy seals became a blockbuster movie. Most have spent years in captivity, left to their fate not just by their employers but by their governments, who lack either the will or...
