    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan officials said Sunday at least 34 people were killed in two separate suicide bombings that targeted a military base and a provincial chief. In eastern Ghazni province, 31 soldiers were killed and 24 others wounded when the attacker drove a military humvee full of explosives onto an army commando base before detonating the car bomb, according to an official in Afghanistan’s national security council, who spoke anonymously because he was not permitted to speak directly to the media. The attack was also confirmed by Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian, though he did not provide details...

    A U.S. Department of Justice lawyer argued Monday that the United States can kill its own citizens without judicial review when litigation would reveal state secrets. The argument drew alarm among judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Courthouse News Service reports. Judge Patricia Millett characterized the DOJ’s argument as giving the government the ability to “unilaterally decide to kill U.S. citizens,” according to coverage of the argument by Courthouse News Service. “Do you appreciate how extraordinary that proposition is?” The government’s brief in the case supplies details of the lawsuit. The plaintiff, Bilal...

    A convicted terrorist organiser, who has refused to tell an inquiry about his contact with the Manchester Arena bomber, is to be released from jail. Abdalraouf Abdallah, 27, was jailed in 2016 after being found guilty of helping people travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group. The Manchester Arena Inquiry heard he was in touch with bomber Salman Abedi in the months leading up to the attack. The BBC understands he will be released on licence later this week. A source said his licence conditions would be among the strictest imposed on a released prisoner. The Manchester Arena...

    The beheading of schoolteacher Samuel Paty, which occurred two weeks after a momentous speech by President Emmanuel Macron in which he unveiled a plan to defend French secular values against “Islamist radicalism,” marked the start of what might turn out to be an all-out war between France and the Islamic world, with Turkey’s Erdoğan leading the Muslim charge. By taking a stand against Muslim extremist violence and suppression of freedom of speech, Macron might find himself facing a new wave of Islamic terror.

    A convicted murderer who helped to stop the London Bridge terror attack last November will have his sentence cut after the Queen intervened. Steven Gallant, 42, was on day release at an event for reformed prisoners in Fishmongers' Hall when Usman Khan began his attack. Gallant, armed only with a Narwhal tusk, helped to restrain Khan, who was wearing a fake suicide vest and was armed with two knives. Khan was shot dead by police but not before he had killed Jack Merritt, 25, and 23-year-old Saskia Jones - both part of the Learning Together scheme to help prisoners access...

    Osama bin Laden's ex-London spokesman has been freed from a US jail to return to Britain on compassionate grounds - because he at high risk from coronavirus due to his obesity.

He was arrested the next year and extradited to America where he struck a plea deal which ended with him being sentenced to 25 years behind bars in 2015.

Mike Pence, the no. 3 Republican in the House, is calling on Obama green jobs czar Van Jones to resign.

    The Black Lives Matter political group has been part of the political scene for seven years, but has taken on a new prominence since May, when protests seemingly everywhere began devolving into riots, and it appeared the group owned America’s streets, sports leagues and corporate boardrooms. The group was founded in 2013, long before George Floyd died while in police custody in Minneapolis on Memorial Day. But it had rarely been perceived as a serious movement. That all changed over the summer, when television screens across the country became filled with demonstrations that turned violent, targeting police forces, government buildings and even statues saluting...

    FBI Director Christopher Wray described Antifa as "a real thing" during a hearing Thursday on Capitol Hill, noting that the bureau has open cases against individuals who self-identify as anti-fascist activists. Wray, who was testifying before the House Homeland Security Committee as part of its Worldwide Threat hearing, was responded to questions about the level of threat the movement poses. "Antifa is a real thing. It’s not a fiction," Wray said of the far-left group. "We look at Antifa as more of an ideology or a movement than we do an organization. We do have quite a number of properly...

    The first peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban are due to begin in the Gulf state of Qatar on Saturday, after months of delay. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the meeting "historic" as he flew to Doha for the opening ceremony. The talks were due to start after a US-Taliban security deal in February. But disagreements over a controversial prisoner swap stalled the next stage, as did violence in Afghanistan, where four decades of war are at a stalemate. A delegation of leading Afghans left Kabul for Doha on Friday - 11 September, the day...
