  1. Photo: File Indian police Saturday said one person has been arrested after a mob stabbed a Muslim teenager to death on suspicion of carrying beef, an offence in many parts of the Hindu-majority country. Cows are revered by Hindus and slaughtering them as well as possession or consumption of beef is banned in most Indian states, with some imposing life sentences for breaking the law. Junaid Khan, 15, was travelling from New Delhi on Friday with three of his brothers when a fight erupted over seats. Between 15 and 20 men pulled out knives and set upon the brothers while making anti-Muslim comments and insisting one of the packets they were carrying contained beef. While Khan was stabbed to death, his brother Shakir sustained injuries on the throat, chest and hands, police said. "The fight started over seats. We are looking into the matter and we have arrested one of the accused who is a 35-year-old old man from (northern state of) Haryana," Ajay Kumar, a government railway police official told AFP. Khan´s brother Hassem told reporters the mob ignored their repeated pleas that they were not carrying any beef. "They were pointing at a packet which had food and saying we should not be allowed to sit since we were carrying beef," Haseem said. The incident is the latest such attack by Hindu vigilantes in India, where there have been a spate of assaults against Muslims and low-caste Dalits. In the last two years, nearly a dozen Muslim men have been killed across the country on suspicion of eating beef or smuggling cows. Critics say vigilantes have been emboldened by the election in 2014 of Prime Minister Narendra Modi´s Hindu right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party. Last year Modi criticised the cow protection vigilantes and urged a crackdown against groups using religion as a cover for committing crimes.

  6. Photo: Twitter LONDON: Local police on Friday arrested a man at the fence surrounding the British parliament on suspicion of carrying a knife, which comes nearly three months after an Islamist terror attack in the same area. The man was detained at 11:10 am (1010 GMT) by the Palace of Westminster in central London, police said in a statement. "The man -- aged in his 30s -- was arrested on suspicion of possession of a knife. There are no reports of any injuries," the brief statement said. A bearded man, wearing black trousers and a grey sweatshirt, could be seen being held against the fence with his arms behind his back by a police officer. A parliamentary spokesman said: "We are aware of an incident outside the Palace of Westminster, which is being dealt with by the Metropolitan Police." On March 22, knifeman Khalid Masood drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing four, and fatally stabbed a policeman guarding the gates of parliament before being shot dead by armed officers. On April 27, a man was arrested across the street from parliament. Police said knives were recovered from him. Khalid Mohammed Omar Ali, 27, of north London, was charged with the intention of committing acts of terrorism engaged in conduct in preparation for giving effect to that intention. He was also charged with two counts relating to explosive substances in Afghanistan in 2012. Friday´s arrest comes on the first anniversary of the murder of MP Jo Cox, who was shot and stabbed to death in her constituency by a man with links to neo-Nazi organisations. More than 110,000 events were to take place around Britain between Friday and Sunday for "The Great Get Together" in honour of Cox, celebrating her belief that "we have far more in common than that which divides us".
  7. TOKYO: A German executive working at Volkswagen´s Tokyo office has been arrested on drug charges, the automaker said Thursday. Thomas Siebert, 53, was detained on Wednesday on suspicion of using an unspecified drug, the company said, with media reports suggesting it was cocaine. "We deeply regret the fact that an employee of our company has been taken into police custody for a personal matter," Volkswagen Group Japan KK said in a statement. "We will fully cooperate during the investigation and take the necessary steps, as soon as the facts have been clarified," it added. The company did not provide further details, but said the sales executive has been working for its Japanese division since 2010. Authorities started investigating Siebert after customs officers found what was believed to be an illegal drug mailed to his Tokyo address, media reports said. His urine tested positive for drugs and Siebert has admitted to using cocaine, local media added. Police declined to confirm the arrest.

  10. What is the similarity between a foodie and a stoner? Both of them get happy and high doing what they love. So, to tap both these powerful congregations, Papa John’s (some employees to be precise) came up with a fabulous idea which kind of backfired on them. In what can be called a very dramatic investigation, a drug racket was busted in Sammamish, Washington where two Papa John’s employees were arrested for selling drugs. They were allegedly selling ecstasy, LSD, cocaine and other drugs outside the restaurant in their parking lot. © Wikimedia Well, it wasn’t any regular raid where the cops got a tip and caught hold of the peddlers. This investigation, which was dubbed as ‘Operation Extra Olives’ by the King County Sheriff’s Department, went on for nearly six months where two undercover detectives acted as potential buyers. You might think (while reading this) that we are narrating some thrilling movie plot where the cops busted the criminals in one of the most kickass ways, but it’s actually true. If you were travelling to Washington and visited Papa John’s and ordered for a pizza with “extra olives”, chances are that you would have got cocaine or marijuana instead in your pizza boxes. “Extra Olives” was the codeword used by the dealers and the buyers. © Pexels According to a report published in CNN, Sgt. Cindi West, King County Sheriff’s spokeswoman said “What the detectives would do is they’d order pizza and go out and wait in the parking lot. The employee would bring the pizza out and in the box would be the cocaine.” Initially, the cops got in touch with only two employees but when they ran out of stuff, the cops were introduced to their friends and that’s how they nabbed the other three. According to the investigators, they have recovered $28,000 cash, cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, oxycodone, LSD and methamphetamine. Now, that’s insane. While the four were arrested, a fifth suspect later turned himself in. © Pixabay In fact, cocaine residue was also found around the Papa John’s cash register and in the employee washing area. However, Papa John’s steered themselves clear of this entire ordeal by issuing a statement stating that the pizzeria “has zero tolerance for this type of offensive and illegal behaviour. The franchise has confirmed that they employees involved with this situation are no longer employed and we apologize for their actions.” They further said, “The franchisee is working in full cooperation with local law enforcement to resolve this matter. Furthermore, food safety and sanitation is of the utmost importance to Papa John’s.” Well, clearly both the pizzeria and the customers got more than just pizzas. While, the former got arrested, the latter got their chance to score some stuff when their local peddler vanished from the scene. After this incident, all we have to say is that Papa John’s had more sides to offer than just calzones, breadsticks or chicken strips. Source: CNN

  16. A gunman on a rampage during a domestic dispute in rural Mississippi fatally shot eight people, including a sheriff´s deputy, US news reports said on Sunday. The shootings took place late Saturday in two small hamlets, Brookhaven and Bogue Chitto, both about 60 miles (100 kilometers) from the city of Jackson. Although details were still murky, the gunman -- Willie Cory Godbolt, 35 -- told The Clarion-Ledger newspaper after his arrest on Sunday that he had gone to a home in Bogue Chitto to talk about getting custody of his children. After the conflict escalated, neighbours called police, and Godbolt shot the arriving deputy. "My pain wasn´t designed for him. He was just there," Godbolt said of the officer. "We was talking about me trying to take the children home," he told the newspaper while sitting on the ground at one of the shooting scenes, arms cuffed behind his back. "Somebody called the officer," he added. "It cost him his life. I´m sorry." Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant issued a statement Sunday calling the shootings a "tragedy" and hailing law enforcement officers who "sacrifice to protect and serve their communities."

REUTERS/Phil Noble MANCHESTER: British police arrested a 19-year-old man on Sunday, the 15th person to be taken into custody in connection with the Manchester suicide bombing that killed 22 people. The arrest was made during a raid in the Gorton area of Manchester on "suspicion of offences contrary to the terrorism act", the Greater Manchester police said in a statement on Twitter. Police said earlier on Sunday they were also searching an address in Rusholme area. Two suspects ? a man and a woman ? have been released without charge, while thirteen are now in custody. 'At full tilt' Members of Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi's network are still potentially at large, British interior minister Amber Rudd said on Sunday, after the terrorism threat level was lowered over significant progress in the investigation. Police said they have arrested a large part of the network behind the bombing and four more men were arrested over the weekend as police continued to close in on the group. Asked during an interview on BBC television whether some of the group were still at large, Rudd said, "Potentially. It is an ongoing operation. There are 11 people in custody, the operation is still really at full tilt in a way. Bomb assembled in apartment Prime Minister Theresa May said developments in the investigation into the bombing meant that intelligence experts had decided to lower the threat level from its highest rating "critical", meaning an attack could be imminent, to "severe". Enlarged versions of CCTV images of 22-year-old Manchester attacker Salman Abedi tweeted by Greater Manchester Police on May 28, 2017. Police have issued a photograph of Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton born to Libyan parents, taken on Monday night before he blew himself up and said they believed he had assembled his bomb in an apartment in the city centre. British officials have confirmed he had recently returned from Libya and the officers said that police needed information about his movements since his return to Britain on May 18. Abedi was known to British security services before the bombing, the government has said, but Rudd declined to comment on exactly what had been known about him. Manchester terror attack: Remembering those who went to enjoy but never returned Here are the victims named so far in what was the deadliest terror attack in Britain since 2005 UK police hunt Manchester bomber's network, angered by US leaks Police scrambled to close down a network around the Manchester suicide bomber with arrests in Britain and Tripoli on Wednesday Media have reported that people who knew Abedi had raised concerns about him and his views as long ago as five years before he carried about Monday's attack. "The intelligence services are still collecting information about him, but I wouldn't rush to conclusions, as you seem to be, that they have somehow missed something," Rudd said. 'Top list' of militants When asked how many potential militants the government was worried about, Rudd said the security services were looking at 500 different potential plots, involving 3,000 people as a "top list", with a further 20,000 beneath that. "That is all different layers, different tiers. It might be just a question mark about one of them or something serious with that top list," she said. Armed police officers keep watch over junior runners competing in the Great Manchester Run in central Manchester, Britain May 28, 2017. REUTERS/Phil Noble The government has previously complained that technology companies are not doing enough to tackle the use of their networks both to promote extremist ideology and for communication between militant suspects via encrypted messages. 'Hate material' Rudd said Britain was making good progress with the Internet companies on this but that more could be done. Technology companies such as WhatsApp say they cannot break end-to-end encryption. "I believe we can get them to be more successful in working with us to find a way of getting some of that information," she said. "The area that I am most concerned about is the Internet companies who are continuing to publish the hate publications, the hate material that is contributing to radicalising people in this country. Manchester bomber was part of a network: police Earlier, interior minister Amber Rudd said the bomber, Salman Abedi, had recently returned from Libya "Security minister Ben Wallace also told the BBC that the government was looking at a range of options to put more pressure on Internet companies to take down extremist material and change their algorithms to stop such posts from linking to similar material elsewhere online."

  23. Police identified 22-year-old Salman Abedi as the suspected suicide bomber who detonated bombs as throngs of teenagers poured out of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. Image: AFP MANCHESTER: British police arrested a woman in here on Wednesday, following searches in the north of the city, as part of their investigation into a terror attack at a pop concert in the city, bringing the total number of arrests to five men and one woman. "A woman has been arrested [at an address] in connection with the ongoing investigation" following searches in Blackley, an area north of the city centre, a police spokeswoman said. In a statement, police explained, "These searches are connected to Monday's horrific attack on the Manchester Arena, but this is a fast-moving investigation and we are keeping an open mind at this stage." Earlier, the BBC reported that armed police had made the arrest during a raid on a block of flats. 'A network that we are investigating' Earlier arrests, made in Manchester and Tripoli arrests on Wednesday, were focused on tracking down a network of accomplices who authorities fear could strike again. Manchester police made four new arrests and searched an address in the city centre. A source said British investigators were hunting for anyone who may have helped build the suicide bomb and could be ready to kill again. "I think it's very clear that this is a network that we are investigating," police chief Ian Hopkins said outside Manchester police headquarters. "And as I've said, it continues at a pace. There's extensive investigations going on and activity taking place across Greater Manchester as we speak." 22-year-old, British-born Abedi blew himself up on Monday night at the Manchester Arena indoor venue at the end of a concert by US pop singer Ariana Grande attended by thousands of children and teenagers. A graphic showing where the blast hit in Manchester. Courtesy: Reuters Police in Tripoli arrested a brother of Abedi and his father. A spokesman for the local counter-terrorism force said younger brother Hashem Abedi was arrested on suspicion of links with Daesh and was suspected of planning to carry out an attack in the Libyan capital. A man arrested on Tuesday was reported by British and US media to be Abedi's other brother. Earlier, interior minister Amber Rudd said the bomber had recently returned from Libya. Her French counterpart Gerard Collomb said he had links with Daesh and had probably visited Syria as well. The Manchester bombing has raised concern across Europe. Cities, including Paris, Nice, Brussels, St Petersburg, Berlin, and London, have suffered militant attacks in the last two years. Britain's official terror threat level was raised to "critical", the highest level, late on Tuesday, meaning an attack was expected imminently. Nevertheless, with just over two weeks to go until the national election, Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives and political parties said they would resume campaigning in the coming days. Soldiers on the streets The Manchester bombing was the deadliest attack in Britain since July 2005, when four British Muslim suicide bombers killed 52 people in coordinated attacks on London's transport network. Rudd said up to 3,800 soldiers could be deployed on Britain's streets, taking on guard duties to free up police to focus on patrols and investigation. An initial deployment of 984 had been ordered, first in London and then elsewhere. Soldiers were seen at the Houses of Parliament, May's Downing Street residence and the London police headquarters in New Scotland Yard. A source close to the investigation into the bombing told Reuters that the focus was on whether Abedi had received help in putting together the bomb and where it had been done. The bomb used in the attack appeared to contain carefully packed shrapnel and have a powerful, high-velocity charge, according to leaked photographs from the investigation published by the New York Times. The BBC reported that security services thought the bomb was too sophisticated for Abedi to have built by himself.

The interior minister was asked by the BBC about the fact that information about Abedi, including his name, had come out of the United States before it was cleared by British authorities. "The British police have been very clear that they want to control the flow of information in order to protect operational integrity, the element of surprise, so it is irritating if it gets released from other sources, and I have been very clear with our friends that should not happen again." Victims to be named in 4-5 days Greater Manchester Police said they were now confident they knew the identity of all the people who lost their lives and had made contact with all the families. They said they would formally name the victims after forensic post-mortems, which would take four or five days.

  24. A California woman was arrested on Tuesday on federal charges of conspiring to procure and illegally export sensitive space communications technology to her native China, the US Justice Department said in a statement. Si Chen, also known as Cathy Chen, 32, could face a prison term of up to 150 years if convicted of all charges contained in the 14-count indictment returned against her by a federal grand jury on April 27, the department said. She pleaded not guilty at an arraignment in US District Court in Los Angeles and was ordered held with bail pending a bond hearing set for Thursday, according to a spokesman for the US Attorney's Office. Chen, a resident of the Los Angeles suburb of Pomona, is accused of violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which controls the export of certain goods and technology from the United States. Specifically, the indictment alleges Chen purchased and smuggled sensitive materials to China without obtaining required export licenses, including components commonly used in military communications "jammers." She also is accused of smuggling devices typically used in space communications applications, and falsifying the paperwork used in shipping those items to list them as worth $500, rather than their true value of more than $100,000. The exports in question date from March 2013 to December 2015. In addition to various export-related offenses, Chen is charged with conspiracy, money laundering, making false statements on an immigration application and using a forged passport, according to the Justice Department. "Federal export laws are designed to protect American interests by preventing the proliferation of technology that may fall into the wrong hands," acting US Attorney Sandra Brown said in a statement. A trial date was scheduled for July 18.
