  • Iran: gunmen kill at least 15 people at Shia shrine in Shiraz

    10/26/2022 9:44:15 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 6 replies
    Armed men have attacked a Shia Muslim shrine in the Iranian city of Shiraz, killing at least 15 people, the state news agency Irna said, as security forces clashed with protesters marking 40 days since the death of Mahsa Amini in custody. Irna described the attackers as “takfiri terrorists”, a label used by officials in predominantly Shia Muslim Iran to refer to hardline, armed Sunni Islamist groups. The attack was later claimed by Islamic State in a statement posted on the terror group’s telegram channel. The attackers were in a car and shot at pilgrims and staff at the entrance...

    Nearly 1,000 Russian soldiers have been killed in one day in Ukraine, Kyiv has claimed, marking the deadliest day for Vladimir Putin since his troops invaded eight months ago. Ukrainian forces have been making gains across Russian-occupied areas, with fighting intensifying in the country's east and in the southern city of Kherson. -snip- And in yet another example of his forces' incompetence, video shows panic-stricken Russian soldiers fleeing a Ukrainian attack on an armoured vehicle - only for it to flip over and fling the troops into the air. Footage, apparently from Kherson, shows Russian soldiers running towards an armoured...

    Six years ago, the Russian navy formed a new army corps whose job it would be to defend Kaliningrad, Russia’s geographically separate outpost on the Baltic Sea between Poland and Lithuania. This year, when the war in Ukraine began to go badly for Russia, the Kremlin yanked the 11th Army Corps from Kaliningrad and sent it into Ukraine. Where the Ukrainian army quickly destroyed it. The formation, deployment and destruction of the 11th Army Corps tell a story that’s bigger than the tragic tale of Russia’s war in Ukraine. The corps, sandwiched between two NATO countries along a strategic sea,...

    More than 90,000 troops make up Russia’s “irrecoverable” military losses in Ukraine, as reported by the Russian media project iStories (or Vazhnye Istorii). One of the two sources of this information works in the FSB; the other is a former state security officer. [Emphasis added.] “Irrecoverable losses” is a category that includes servicemen who were killed, went missing, died from their wounds or were disabled and cannot return to military service. This new estimate is close to the figures stated earlier by the Pentagon and the British Defense Ministry. Last August, the Pentagon estimated that 70–80 thousand Russian troops had...

    By noon on Monday, Bavaria Bierhaus, a downtown bar on Stone Street, a short walk from the offices of the New York Daily News at 4 New York Plaza, was already filling up with day-drinkers who had just been fired from the century-old tabloid, along with a few colleagues who have managed—at least for the moment—to hold onto their jobs. “It’s all a blur right now,” said a staffer who narrowly avoided being axed in what colleagues variously described as “a massacre” and “a bloodbath.”

According to the Associated Press, the New York Police Department confirmed the Brooklyn-born rapper visited a police station in the early hours of Sunday morning. According to the account he allegedly gave police, 6ix9ine was a passenger in a car around 4:30am when three men reportedly emerged from a second car, forced the rapper into their car and robbed him of “an undisclosed amount...

    Pittsburgh International Airport next month will become the first airport in the country to allow visitors to access the airside terminal's shops, restaurants and gates without buying a plane ticket. Officials say the program will boost revenue for the airport and give Western Pennsylvania residents who don't fly often the chance to experience the airport's improvements. Under the program, which starts Sept. 5, visitors will be able to enter the airside terminal from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Those days and times were chosen because they are slow periods for the airport, Allegheny County Airport Authority CEO...

    Of the 21,748 people who have been given deportation orders by Sweden's Migration Agency last month – the largest number in history, by the way – 14,140 are registered by police as "departed" or "wanted," the Swedish website The Local reports. "We simply don't know where they are," said Patrik Engström, the head of the national border police. It is unknown how many of the missing are still in the country or may have left for elsewhere in Europe. The rest of the illegals are either in refugee centers, in custody, or living in separate accommodations they have arranged for...

    We keep hearing about the “right to die.” There is no right to die–no escape, of course,–but no right. Yet, I hasten to add. No right to die, yet. What do I mean? The killing decision in euthanasia and assisted suicide isn’t really the suicidal person’s “choice:” It is the killer’s or helper’s. In other words, life will end only if the joint venturer in the killing believes the suicidal person’s life is not worth living. davidmixnerThis ultimate truth about euthanasia–even in wild death cultures like Belgium and the Netherlands–came to mind as I read about gay activist David Mixner’s...

    The death toll of multiple U.S. drone strikes launched on Sunday against training camps of al- Qaida militants in Yemen's southern provinces of Abyan and Shabwa has risen to 55, the Yemeni Interior Ministry said on Monday. Three local leaders were among the 55 dead militants, the ministry said in a brief statement on its website. It said that its security services are working to identify the nationalities of foreign fighters who were killed among al-Qaida militants in the airstrikes. The ministry described the air strikes as the strongest assault launched against the militants since 2012, when the army retook...

    Twenty-two jihadists were killed and fifteen were injured after their teacher, who was teaching them how to detonate a suicide bomb, detonated a suicide bomb strapped to his chest. The jihadists were members of “the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria,” a Sunni terrorist group that looks to have Islam control both of those nations. They have bombed multiple locations throughout Iraq. On Monday, the only people they were killing were themselves. The instructor, who was not named, was explaining to a class of new recruits how to carry out a suicide bombing. Somehow unwittingly packed with explosives, the teacher...

    Gunmen opened fire on Muslim worshippers as they were leaving a mosque in northern Nigeria on Sunday, killing at least 20 people, a local official said. The attack happened in a remote village called Dogo Dawa, in Kaduna state, said Abdullahi Muhammad, the traditional ruler and councillor of Birnin Gwari, a local government area next door to the village. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. Like much of northern Nigeria, Kaduna is plagued by an insurgency led by radical Islamist sect Boko Haram. They usually attack security forces, government officials or Christians, but have hit Muslim...

    The Government is planning a new Whitehall commission that will try to tackle the growth of the "nanny state". Gordon Brown is personally leading the "radical" initiative, having accepted that government has "assumed more responsibility for people's lives than is healthy or desired". He wants the new body to explain to the public why it should no longer do so. advertisement In June, the Prime Minister asked the Better Regulation Commission (BRC), the independent watchdog, to work out the plans and it is understood the final details are now being agreed. If the proposal is given the green light, the...
