Egypt: Authorities Arrest 26 Terrorists - Army Spokesman

24 March 2014

Cairo — Egyptian authorities arrested 26 terrorists and criminals in security operations across the country on Monday, Egypt's army spokesman Ahmed Aly said.

Aly added in an official statement earlier that 21 suspects were arrested in security operations in northern Sinai alone.

He added that the authorities also confiscated arms and vehicles that were being prepped for use in terrorist activities.

Fourteen tunnels into Rafah were also demolished earlier today, the spokesman added.

Egypt has stepped up security efforts since the ouster of President Mohamed Mursi last year in response to increasing attacks against security personnel.

CONAKRY, March 27 Thu Mar 27, 2014 2:01pm EDT


(Reuters) - Four cases of infection by the deadly Ebola virus have been confirmed in Conakry, Health Minister Remy Lamah said on Thursday, marking the first confirmed spread of the disease from rural areas to the capital of the West African state.

"The four tested positive," Lamah told Reuters. "They have been placed an isolation ward in Donka hospital." (Reporting by Saliou Samb in Conakry and Misha Hussain of the Thomson Reuters Foundation in Dakar;

Sorry for not getting back to this thread sooner. Yet I see by the number of hits that each reader is either reading as a new person to this thread or using some of the links provided.

Which soon I shall add several more on world wide news.

So far I have added a few NEW SITES to some of the other threads I run in this topic area and in the Geography, History & Military Topc area.

Drone in Yemen kills 9 suspected al-Qaida fighters

SANAA, Yemen (AP) — A U.S. drone strike in southern Yemen killed nine suspected al-Qaida militants and three civilians Saturday, authorities said, part of America's ongoing strikes in the country against what it considers the terror network's most dangerous local group.

A Yemeni military official said the early Saturday strike struck a vehicle carrying the militants in the Sawmaa area in the al-Bayda province as another car carrying civilians passed by.

A security official investigating the strike said one of the civilian survivors said the strike hit a white SUV, tossing it some 20 meters (21 yards) away. He said the survivor said they fled the flying debris and took shelter while "explosions" continued for another 30 minutes.

Then, the survivor said, another drone fired neared their car, killing one of his companions and wounded him.

A medical official said that the strike had killed three civilians and wounded three.

The medical and security officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters.

The U.S. considers Yemen's branch of al-Qaida, also known as Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, to be the most dangerous in the world. The group is blamed for a number of unsuccessful bomb plots aimed at Americans, including an attempt to bring down a U.S.-bound airliner with explosive hidden in the bomber's underwear and a second plot to send mail bombs hidden in the toner cartridges on planes headed to the U.S.

It overran much of the south in 2011. Yemen's army, supported by U.S. military experts and drone strikes, has pushed them back, but clashes continue.

However, civilian casualties in the strikes have sparked anger in the country and among human rights groups. According to the nonpartisan public policy institute New America Foundation, the U.S. has launched 99 drone strikes in Yemen since 2002.

There was no immediate U.S. comment on the strike. The U.S. will acknowledge drone strikes carried out by its military, but typically not those done in CIA operations........................................ .................................................. ...

A joint operation has taken a very large amount of heroin from ever being distributed.

UK-Australian navies make largest ever heroin bust


AFP April 25, 2014 4:31 PM

London (AFP) - A joint operation by the British and Australian navies has seized the largest ever haul of heroin at sea, weighing 1,032 kilogrammes, the Ministry of Defence in London said Friday.

The drugs, with an estimated British street value of more than £140 million (170 million euros, $235 million), were found on a dhow, or sailboat, some 30 miles (48 kilometres) off the coast of east Africa near Kenya and Tanzania.

Commodore Jeremy Blunden, the British Royal Navy commander in charge of the operation, said the seizure was a "significant blow" to drug trafficking networks.

It was made as part of an international operation against drug smuggling in the Indian Ocean, which helps fund organisations such as Al-Qaeda.

"This is the sixth seizure of heroin by the Combined Maritime Forces since January and is by far the largest ever made by the organisation," said Blunden, who is based in Bahrain.

He was commanding an Australian navy warship, HMAS Darwin, which has high-tech surveillance capabilities.

"Pinpointing a dhow in 2.4 million square miles of ocean is a real challenge," he added.

An Australian navy team then boarded the dhow to find the drugs, which were stored in hundreds of plastic bags and hidden in a cargo of cement. They were later destroyed.

The Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) is a naval partnership involving 30 nations covering 2.5 million square miles of international waters.....................

Well there is a first time for all items. Including the news, while doing the Afghanistan posting I came across this news item.

Well since 1890 China has been the second largest economy period. Yet it is about to zoom past America, unless it crumbles from within first.

China to lead as largest economy

Afghanistan News.Net Saturday 3rd May, 2014

A new study has been concluded that indicates China will overtake the US as the world's biggest economy. The International Comparison Program, run from offices in Washington, has released data from a study that began in 2011.

According to the study, China's economy was 87 per cent of the size of that of the US in 2011. The figure was 43 per cent in 2005.

The study, which involves organisations including the World Bank and United Nations, reported India had vaulted into third place ahead of Japan.

Worldwide surveys are held at six year intervals by the ICP to final expenditures on goods and services, government services, and capital goods.

199 countries across eight regions are involved in offering statistics. The study also assesses the most expensive countries in which to live. The ten most expensive countries are all Scandinavian nations with Australia, Japan, Luxembourg and Canada. - See more at:

Saudi Arabia busts 'Al-Qaeda cell'

Government says the 62-member group was planning to assassinate government and foreign officials.

Last updated: 06 May 2014 16:02

Saudi Arabia has said that it has uncovered an al-Qaeda group that has been plotting to assassinate officials and attack government and foreign targets.

The cell is made up of 62 members, including 59 Saudi fighters, a Yemeni, a Pakistani and a Palestinian, Mansour al-Turki, a spokesman for the country's Interior Ministry, said during a televised briefing on Tuesday.

An investigation into social media postings "led security forces after months of hard work to pinpoint suspicious activities that unveiled a terrorist organisation through which the elements of al-Qaeda in Yemen were communicating with their counterpart elements in Syria in coordination with a number of misguided [people] at home in various provinces of the kingdom", al-Turki said.

Saudi Arabia was hit by a string of al-Qaeda-led attacks between 2003 to 2006 in which fighters targeted residential compounds for foreigners and Saudi government facilities, killing dozens of people.

The kingdom responded by arresting thousands of suspected fighters and launching a media campaign to discredit the groups's ideology with the backing of influential Muslim leaders.

The courts have sentenced thousands of Saudi citizens to prison for similar offences over the past decade.

And in early April of this year, a Saudi court sentenced Faris al-Zahrani, a top al-Qaeda leader, to death for his role in the violence that erupted in the kingdom in 2003.............................................. ..................................
