​In Indonesia Suicide bomber attacks police station, injures 1



A suicide bomber on a motorcycle attacked a police station in the small

Indonesian city of Solo on Tuesday, killing himself and wounding a police officer, a police spokesman said.

Following the attack, President Joko Widodo, who is from Solo and a former mayor of the town, urged calm and ordered police to quickly arrest others that may have been connected to the suicide bomber.

Police have increased security at churches, mosques, shopping malls and airports as Indonesia, home to the world’s largest Muslim population, prepares to celebrate the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

“We are increasing the number of personnel, as well as intensifying patrols and security in places where there are a lot of people gathering,” said police spokesman Agus Rianto .

Police said the attacker detonated the bomb he was wearing shortly after driving into the grounds of the police station in Solo, known as a hotbed for religious fundamentalism. A police officer who tried to stop him from entering sustained minor injuries.

The identity of the bomber was not immediately clear, but intelligence chief Sutiyoso told MetroTV he suspected the attacker was a supporter of Islamic State.

The radical group claimed its first attack in Indonesia last January, in the capital Jakarta, that killed four people. The four attackers also died.

Indonesia saw a spate of attacks in the 2000s, the deadliest of which was a nightclub bombing on the holiday island of Bali that killed 202 people, most of them tourists.

Police have been largely successful in destroying domestic militant cells since then, but they now worry that the influence of Islamic State could pitch the country back into violence.

Southeast Asian militants who claim to be fighting for Islamic State in the Middle East have said they have chosen one of the most wanted men in the Philippines to head a regional faction of the ultra-radical group that includes Indonesians and Malaysians, security officials said last month.

His father said he watched in horror as his son was dragged for 30 metres by the Leopard after having sunk its razor sharp jaws into his son’s shoulder. He said he ran after the Leopard shouting and yelling for it to put his son down. Fortunately and by God’s grace, the leopard dropped the boy allowing his father to pick him up and carry him to safety.
Justin Denny, the boy’s father told the local Cape Argus newspaper that his sons were running laps along a low wall unbeknownst to them, the leopard was nearby hunting.

He added:
“By the grace of God, it dropped him.” “I picked him up and rushed him back to the rondavel. A neighbour arrived with his wife who is a nurse.” The reserve’s management called for a doctor who raced to the boy to give him treatment.

Herdsmen Attacks: Northern senators warn govs, other leaders from making inflammatory statements


image

The Northern Senators caucus in the Senate have called for caution in attributing the attacks carried out by some herdsmen as attacks carried out by Fulani herdsmen. Rising from a meeting in Abuja yesterday May 4th, the group described as unfortunate the general attribution of these attacks to a particular tribe in the North.
Speaking to journalists after the meeting, Chairman, Northern Senators’ Forum, Senator Abdullahi Adamu said the call for caution against making inflammatory statements includes Governors. He said we will not have a country if herdsmen are asked to leave every community
“It is for all Nigerians. A governor is a community leader. The only difference is that he has a label called governor. If you don’t mind, in recent times, it started with the West when elder statesman, Chief Olu Falae, had some very nasty experience. It was attributed at the time to Fulani herdsmen. At the end, those people were apprehended and they were not Fulanis. This thing has been going on in virtually all parts of the country today. If we now say that everybody should rise and say herdsmen should leave, we will not have a country.”he said

500 ISIS terrorists reportedly deployed across Europe to cause next set of attacks


image

Terrorist group ISIS has reportedly trained 500 terrorists and sent them into Europe disguising as refugees to cause maximum damage and terror on the European continent, according to reports from the Associated Press.

The world is still getting to grips with the shock from the Paris terror attack and most recently the Belgium airport attack. Attacks which ISIS have claimed responsibility for, but with this new tactic employed by the group, Europe is in for more shock and grief if the reports are true.

AP reports,
“After fleeing Paris immediately after the November attacks, Abdeslam forged a new network back in his childhood neighborhood of Molenbeek, long known as a haven for jihadis, and renewed plotting, according to Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders.” “Not only did he drop out of sight, but he did so to organize another attack, with accomplices everywhere. With suicide belts. Two attacks organized just like in Paris. And his arrest, since they knew he was going to talk, it was a response: So what if he was arrested? ‘We’ll show you that it doesn’t change a thing,”’ said French Senator Nathalie Goulet, co-head of a commission tracking jihadi networks.
“The reality is that if we knew exactly how many there were, it wouldn’t be happening.” It is true ISIS is losing territory and influence the Syria and the Middle East, due to coalition operations and Russian airstrikes, but the group has metastasized like a cancer into Western capitals which was always the long term goal to begin with. The feeble effort by the Obama administration to target the Islamic State, while it was in Syria and Iraq for two long years, gave the terrorist regime time to plan the infiltration of terrorists into Europe, along with the ground to train its fighters.
Now, even if ISIS is defeated and eradicated in the Levant, it doesn’t really matter. The damage has been done. The terror cells are in place to kill for decades to come. ISIS has also spread to Africa and other areas around the world to enable the training, recruitment and planning to continue.
