“Security on alert ahead of attacks”

July 3, 2007
ARTICLE SNIPPET: “Security aboard flights into Glasgow Airport was beefed up two weeks ago with protection by U.S. air marshals who are now on board every inbound and outgoing European flight, according to a Homeland Security official.
Air marshals also began guarding flights into Prague at the same time, and in May stepped up coverage to guard all flights into and out of Germany, where terrorists are reportedly in the advanced planning stages of an attack. Air marshals are also guarding some flights into South Asia airports.
An official who asked to remain anonymous said suspicious events aboard flights have been reported and are being investigated but declined to reveal any details of the events.
“There is so much going on out there. We do know these guys are definitely in an operational phase right now,” the official said.”

FOX NEWS.com: "REPORT: OFFICIALS FEAR IMMINENT TERROR ATTACK ON AMERICANS IN GERMANY" (ARTICLE SNIPPET: "But U.S. officials confirmed to FOX News that the threat is not new and dates back to an April 20 warning issued by the U.S. Embassy in Germany regarding unspecified threats to U.S. interests and/or Americans in that country. A U.S. official told FOX News the threat is considered real, although not new, and is believed to involve one or more Middle Eastern Kurdish groups perhaps associated with Al Qaeda. While this threat is being judged by both U.S. and German officials as serious, a U.S. official said much less is known about the specifics, including when and where such an attack might occur.")

18.04.2007: 2320 LT: Entrance Cartagena Colombia.
A container ship, while disembarking her pilot on the port side noticed, on radar, one unlit suspicious boat approaching from the stbd side at high speed. The master alerted the crew. The boat came very close to the vessel (about 10 m from the hull). On seeing the alert crew on ship’s side, the boat retreated and disappeared into the darkness. The master informed the Centre to alert other vessels calling Cartagena, Colombia.
Recently reported incidents
21.6.2007: 2302 LT: Posn 04:15N 05:35E, Pennington, Nigeria.
A tanker undergoing cargo operations at a SBM was attacked by armed pirates. The pirates boarded the standby tug at the stern of the vessel and contacted the ship via VHF demanding to be let on board or they would sink the ship. The crew mustered, cargo operations were stopped and the vessel disconnected from the SBM. The tug was cast off and the ship proceeded at full speed to sea. All attempts to contact the authorities and the Nigerian navy were futile.
25.06.2007: 1820 LT: Posn 01:51.5S 105:02.8E Dep Tanjung Ular Port, Palembang, Indonesia.
Around eleven pirates, armed with long knives and shotguns boarded a tanker underway. On sighting the pirates, crew ran inside the accommodation and closed all doors. On taking the head count master realised one oiler was being held hostage. Master contacted the shore authorities. The pirates opened fire but there were no injuries to crew. The pirates escaped in a small speedboat. Coast guard arrived to investigate. No stores missing.
23.06.2007: 2145 LT: Pulau Lima, Kota Tinggi, Malaysia.
Six robbers armed with long knives and pistols boarded a product tanker while she was alongside. One of the crew was hit on the head with the machete. Another crewmember stood up to the robbers. In the struggle, he fell overboard but managed to swim to the shore and contacted the police with assistance from the local fishermen. The robbers spent around 30 minutes ransacking and robbing the crews personal effects, before escaping. The injured crews were sent to the hospital

“Fishermen breach Nimitz security”
GC Shekhar, Hindustan Times
Chennai, July 04, 2007
First Published: 01:17 IST(4/7/2007)
Last Updated: 01:22 IST(4/7/2007)
ARTICLE SNIPPET: “The intruders, on spotting the patrol boat, jumped into their motorboat and started speeding away. Only after the police warned them over the PA system that they would open fire did the intruders’ boat come to a halt after almost an hour-long chase.
The three occupants were taken to the local police station and on interrogation were found to be fishermen from Kasimedu in North Chennai.
The three Ramesh, Kanna and Bhaskar who were completely drunk, disclosed that they had boarded the water taxi to retrieve their net, which had been snared by the ferry while they were fishing.
The three are being detained for further questioning. According to police sources, a huge security ring consisting of coast guard and police patrols has been active around Nimitz and other warships of the strike force.
“We’ll tighten the security ring as we do not want another security breach. The next time it need not be some drunk fishermen,” said a senior police officer.”

LOL, Thank you for your hard work looking for me.

You are welcome! LOL! And now we know : )
Thankfully, we’re not going anywhere near a mall tomorrow. It’s strictly family time. Everyone, stay safe!!!
Well, I hope you have a wonderful Independence Day.
I was impressed that malls and security in the malls seemed
to be getting more coverage than usual. That’s a good thing.

“March of the Burkha brigade: Women lead the charge in bloody clashes”

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “Like some secretive, sinister army they march on their target.
With only eyes visible behind black burkhas, scores of women wielding bamboo poles descend on a police checkpoint in the Pakistan capital of Islamabad.
Backed by armed male students, they snatched weapons and took four officials hostage, triggering a gun battle that left at least nine people dead and 140 wounded.
As the bullets flew, many of the women took to rooftops to shout anti- Government slogans.
Students set fire to two government offices and torched dozens of cars outside.
There were even loudspeaker calls for suicide attacks on the police. The clashes yesterday were a violent climax to a long dispute between Pakistani officials and the controversial Red Mosque, run by a Taliban-style movement.
Clerics at the mosque and the 5,000 students at its two madrassas, or religious schools, have been campaigning for the imposition of fundamentalist Islamic social values, including Sharia law, that would include public executions and the stoning of adulterers.”
