  1. Police officers stand guard after suspected gang members attacked Roosevelt Hospital in Guatemala City, Guatemala, August 16, 2017. REUTERS/Luis Echeverria GUATEMALA CITY: At least seven people were killed and 12 others injured on Wednesday after suspected gang members attacked a hospital in the capital in a bid to free a jailed associate who went there under police supervision for a checkup, officials said. "Anderson Daniel Cabrera, a gang member from the Mara Salvatrucha, was coming for a medical review," police spokesman Jorge Aguilar said, adding the suspected gang members "are suspected of wanting to rescue him." Police arrested five of seven suspected gang members who were armed with assault rifles when they attacked Guatemala City's Roosevelt Hospital, although Cabrera escaped, Aguilar told reporters. Cabrera had been jailed since late 2013. "The search for those responsible will continue and they will see the law enforced. These are terrorist acts," Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales told reporters. Among the seven people killed were three security guards and a hospital janitor, said Edwin Bravo, director of the San Juan de Dios hospital where the injured were transferred. Patients on crutches and in stretchers and wheelchairs were evacuated from the hospital as police officers searched for other attackers. Hallway floors were stained with blood and walls were pocked with bullet holes, according to a Reuters witness on the scene. Like El Salvador and Honduras, Guatemala struggles with endemic gang violence, especially from the powerful Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13, and its rival Calle 18, who sow terror across Central America.
  2. Army Chief General Qamar Bajwa. Photo: File QUETTA: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa arrived in Quetta on Sunday, a day after a suspected suicide attack on a military vehicle in the city left eight soldiers and seven civilians dead. Sources said the army chief will visit the injured undergoing treatment in hospitals to inquire into their health and also chair a security meeting. The FIR of the attack, which took place on Saturday evening at the Pishin bus stop, is yet to be registered. Sources said experts of the Punjab Forensic Science Agency are expected to arrive in Quetta soon for aiding the investigation. The site of the incident remains sealed, with no thoroughfare allowed. The attack on the military vehicle left eight army officials and seven civilians dead and also injured around 40 people. 15 army personnel, civilians martyred, 40 others wounded in Quetta blast: ISPR COAS Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa condemned the attack and called it 'an attempt to mar independence day festivity' Condemning the terrorist attack on Saturday, Gen Bajwa termed it an attempt to ?mar Independence Day festivity? in the city and declared that ?our resolve won?t succumb to any challenge?. The Balochistan Assembly and FC Hostel are situated near the site of the explosion and the area is categorised as 'sensitive', security wise. Following the blast, Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri and Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, accompanied by Quetta Corps Commander Lt Gen Aamer Riaz, visited the hospital to inquire into the injured being treated there. Meanwhile, newly-appointed Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif condemned the attack, saying our brave armed forces stand steadfast against the coward enemy.

  4. Marcus Hutchins, the man who was responsible for bringing down the goal cyber attack in May has been arrested for creating and distributing malicious software that is designed to collect and store bank account passwords. © Twitter He was arrested on the charge earlier this week and it came as a shock to the cybersecurity community. His quick thinking helped control the spread of the WannaCry virus that was responsible for crippling thousands of computers around the world. Hutchins was detained in Las Vegas where he was visiting and was on his way back to England for an annual gathering of hackers and IT experts. He has been charged with the creation of the Kronos banking Trojan. © Wikimedia Commons The malware created by Hutchins infect web browsers, then steals usernames and passwords when an unsuspecting user visits a bank. The ransomer out also send emails with compromising attachments that would, in turn, infect Word documents. The ad for the Kronos was listed in Russian forums in 2014 for $7000. © Reuters Hutchins was responsible for tackling and slow the spread of WannaCry in May that would lock files in computers around the world. One could unlock the computers for a ransom of $300. The damage caused by WannaCry forced hospitals, railway offices and other business to shut down operations. Hutchins created a ‘kill switch' that prevented the further spread of the ransomware. The US authorities have granted bail for the 23-year-old British hacker on the condition that he pay $30,000 and not leave the country. Hutchins, bett4er known as ‘MalwareTech' had been in Las Vegas for the annual Def Con hacking conference. He was at the airport preparing to leave when he was arrested.
  5. Costly cyber attacks are having a bigger impact on corporate earnings and are becoming a fact of life for companies as Oreo cookie maker Mondelez, drug maker Merck and others said that a destructive "worm" attack in the last week of the second quarter disrupted operations. Mondelez International Inc, the world's second-largest confectionary company, reported a 5 percent drop in quarterly sales on Wednesday, blaming shipping and invoicing delays caused by the June 27 attack of the worm, known as NotPetya. Other NotPetya victims include Merck & Co Inc, which last week warned that NotPetya had halted production of some drugs, saying it has yet to understand the full costs associated with the attack. The attack also slowed deliveries at FedEx Corp, disrupted port operations of shipping company A.P. Moller-Maersk A/S and halted production lines at British consumer goods maker Reckitt Benckiser PLC, according to accounts by those companies. Investors should get used to hearing about cyber attacks during earnings calls, said Ian Winer, equity co-head at Wedbush Securities. "The trend is accelerating," Winer said. "As hackers get more sophisticated they are taking shots at major companies." More hackers are becoming adept at developing or finding malware to wipe data on computers, making them inoperable. One mysterious group known as The Shadow Brokers in April dumped a trove of powerful hacking tools on the Internet, which security experts said were developed by the US National Security Agency. Code the group released was used for spreading NotPetya and in the "WannaCry" attack in May on hospitals, businesses and governments worldwide. Jake Dollarhide, head of Longbow Asset Management in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which manages $85 million in assets, said he expects cyber attacks to be as common as reports that a storm or oil prices hurt results. Cyence, a firm that helps insurers measure cyber risk, estimated that economic costs from NotPetya would total $850 million. Major global cyber attacks have the potential to cause economic losses on par with catastrophic natural disasters such as US Superstorm Sandy in 2012, Cyence and Lloyd's of London Ltd said in a joint report in July. Average economic losses caused by such disruptions could range from $4.6 billion to $121 billion, the report said. "As stock market investors we have to accept this brand new reality in this new digital age," Longbow's Dollarhide said. NotPetya is a destructive self-propagating "worm" capable of spreading quickly across computer networks, crippling computers by encrypting hard drives so that machines cannot run. It has taken victims weeks to get factories and other critical systems back online because businesses must individually replace damaged hard drives. Most businesses are inadequately protected from cyber attacks, said Tom Kellermann, chief executive of investment firm Strategic Cyber Ventures. "The day of reckoning has come for shareholders," Kellermann said.
  6. ESNA: A policeman and a civilian were killed and three people wounded in an attack late on Thursday on a patrol in Esna, south of Luxor, the Interior Ministry said. The police patrol had stopped a vehicle and when stopped, two gunmen fired on the patrol, the ministry said in a statement. One of the perpetrators were arrested while the other fled, the ministry said, adding that the wounded have been transferred to hospital. Attacks on security forces have been common in Egypt since the army, led by general-turned-President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, ousted President Mohamed Mursi in 2013 following mass protests against his rule.
  7. Fatemah Qaderyan, right, lost her father in a deadly attack on a mosque earlier this week/Reuters HERAT: The father of an Afghan girl who represented her country in a robotics competition in the United States died in this week´s Herat mosque attack, her family said Thursday. Fifteen-year-old Fatema Qaderyan was part of the six-member team of Afghan teenage girls who won hearts across the globe when they competed in the international youth event in Washington DC last month. They made headlines after twice being denied American visas, and were only able to travel from war-torn Afghanistan for the FIRST Global Challenge following a late intervention by US President Donald Trump. Qaderyan´s older brother told AFP that their father died in Tuesday night´s suicide bomb attack on the Jawadya mosque which killed dozens and was claimed by the Daesh group. "We are all devastated, Fatema hasn´t eaten or spoken since the incident, and is in a state of shock. Today after she fainted several times, doctors started IV fluid therapy," Mohammad Reza said at the family home. The six girls are all from Herat, which lies close to the Iranian border in the west of Afghanistan. Attack on mosque in Afghan city of Herat kills at least 29 More than 1,700 civilians have been killed in attacks in Afghanistan so far this year Before they were granted US visas for the event, in which they competed against high school students from around the world, Qaderyan made an emotional plea for them to be allowed to travel. "We were not a terrorist group to go to America and scare people," she told AFP. "We want to take the message of peace to America and convey that Afghanistan is not only the country of war, and there are girls who chase their dreams in robots and education," she added. Thirty-three worshippers were killed, including children, and more than 60 others wounded, when two suicide bombers throwing grenades stormed the packed mosque where people had gathered for prayers on Tuesday night. It was the latest deadly attack on the minority community in Afghanistan. Daesh has claimed responsibility for a series of attacks killing dozens in Kabul over the past year, including twin explosions in July 2016 that ripped through the crowds, killing at least 85 people and wounding more than 400.
  8. HERAT: A suicide attack on a mosque in the western Afghan city of Herat killed more than 29 people and wounded more than 64 on Tuesday, officials said. More than 1,700 civilians have been killed in attacks in Afghanistan so far this year, hitting confidence in the Western-backed government of President Ashraf Ghani. Abdulhai Walizada, a local police spokesman, said there appeared to be more than one attacker on Tuesday, with witnesses describing a suicide bomber who detonated explosives and at least one other, a gunman who threw grenades at worshippers. "Two attackers entered the mosque and started shooting and throwing grenades at people," said Mohammad Adi, a worshipper at the mosque who was injured in the attack and taken to hospital. Mohammad Asif Rahimi, governor of Herat, said at least 29 people were killed and 64 wounded in the incident which came two months after an attack on a 12th century mosque known as the Jama Masjid in Herat, in which seven people died. There was no claim of responsibility. But the Taliban, fighting to install strict Islamic law and drive foreign troops out of Afghanistan, denied any involvement. Ghani, whose government has been under mounting pressure because of deteriorating security across the country, condemned the bombing and called on religious scholars to "raise their voices against the terrorist attacks". The latest attack comes as the US administration considers sending more troops to Afghanistan to bolster the NATO-led coalition advising and assisting Afghan security forces.

The video clip depicts suspects ? who came on a motorcycle ? opening fire at the policemen on duty at Isphahani Road at close range, police officials explained. The attackers then proceeded to take the wounded officers' weapons, including an MP-5 submachine gun (SMG), and fled the crime scene. The assailants, authorities noted, came from Muskan Chowk and went back in the same direction following the incident, which left one officer dead and another injured. One traffic policeman martyred, another injured in Karachi attack Unknown assailants on motorcycle attacked and fled from the scene The officials who were attacked had been posted at the Gulzar-e-Hijri traffic section and were performing their duty when the incident took place. Police sources had explained at the time that around 10 casings of 9mm bullets were recovered from the crime scene. "There is a group of 12-14 people who conduct attacks against police personnel. The first team performs reconnaissance on the targets for a few days and the second group executes the attack," Rao Anwar ? the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP)-Malir ? had commented.
  10. Police stand on a street that has been blocked to the public after Australian counter-terrorism police arrested four people in raids late on Saturday across several Sydney suburbs in Australia, July 29, 2017. REUTERS/David Gray SYDNEY: Security has been increased at Australian airports after police foiled radical plans for a bomb attack on an aircraft during counter-terrorism raids in which four men were arrested on Saturday, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) have confirmed. "In recent days, law enforcement has become aware of information that suggested some people in Sydney were planning to commit a terrorist act using an improvised device," AFP commissioner Andrew Colvin said during a press conference with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Sunday "Exactly what is behind this is something that we will need to investigate fully," he said. "At this time, we don?t have a great deal of information on the specific attack, the location, date or time. However, we are investigating information indicating that the aviation industry was potentially a target ?" Five properties were searched on Saturday across the Sydney suburbs of Surry Hills, Lakemba, Punchbowl, and Wiley Park. The commissioner said four of those searches may continue for days. An AFP spokesman told Reuters the men had not been charged as of Sunday morning. Turnbull said advice from Australian security and intelligence agencies had led to increased security measures at Sydney airport on Thursday, while the country's other domestic and international airports were affected from Saturday. "Some of the measures will be obvious to the public, some will not be," Turnbull said. Colvin said travellers could expect an increased police and security agency presence at airports. "You can expect longer delays to make sure that more screening is being done on baggage, both hold luggage as well as hand luggage," adding that travellers should allow more time to get through security. Australia, a close ally of the United States, has been on heightened alert for attacks by homegrown militants returning from fighting in the Middle East, or their supporters, since 2014. Authorities say they have thwarted a number of potential attacks since then but there have been several "lone wolf" assaults, including a cafe siege in Sydney that left two hostages and the gunman dead. About 100 people have left Australia for Syria to fight alongside organizations such as Daesh, Australia's immigration minister said last month.
  11. This file photo ? taken on June 26, 2017 ? shows Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta (R), flanked by Deputy President William Ruto, gesturing during the unveiling of the Jubilee Party's manifesto in Nairobi. AFP/Simon Maina NAIROBI: Unknown gunmen attacked the home of Kenya's Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday seriously injuring a policeman, less than two weeks before the country votes in high-stakes polls, two security sources told AFP. Ruto was not home during the attack. An officer from the elite police General Service Unit (GSU) was seriously injured, a security official ? who was not authorised to speak to the press ? said. "There are armed people who staged the attack and have shot the GSU officer and stolen his gun,? the official said. Security forces are trying to establish if there are still attackers in the deputy president's "expansive" home near the town of Eldoret, some 312 kilometres northwest of the capital Nairobi, a senior police officer said. "More security personnel have been deployed and a security operation is ongoing," the officer said. The attack occurred despite the round-the-clock presence of guards from the GSU's top-notch reconnaissance unit. A spokesman for Ruto declined to comment but the security official said the deputy president had left the house shortly before the attack to attend a rally alongside President Uhuru Kenyatta, his running mate who faces a tight re-election contest on August 8 against longtime opposition leader Raila Odinga. Ruto's home sits in Kenya's western Rift Valley area, the flashpoint for an outbreak of election violence after the disputed 2007 polls that killed 1,100 people and tarnished Kenya's image as a regional beacon of safety and stability. According to opinion polls, this year's election will be close and tensions have been rising. Odinga has repeatedly claimed the government is scheming to steal the election, while Kenyatta has accused Odinga of trying to delay the polls. Earlier this month, Human Rights Watch said it had received reports of threats and voter intimidation in Naivasha, a flashpoint town in 2007 and one of the potential hotspots in this year's election. In the Rift Valley, hate speech flyers have been circulating and some local residents have already left their homes. The 2007 bloodshed haunted both Ruto and Kenyatta long after it ended when the International Criminal Court put both on trial for orchestrating the violence. Those charges were later dropped, with ICC chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda blaming a relentless campaign of victim intimidation for making a trial impossible.
  12. Police stand guard at the scene of the incident/AFP HAMBURG: One person was killed and six others were injured on Friday when a failed asylum-seeker brandishing a knife attacked shoppers in a Hamburg supermarket, before being overpowered by passers-by, police and officials said. The attack had been motivated by "hate," mayor Olaf Scholz said, although he stopped short of declaring it a terrorist incident. "It makes me especially angry that the perpetrator appears to be a person who claimed protection in Germany and then turned his hate against us," he said. If confirmed as a terrorist attack, it would be the first in Germany since Tunisian Anis Amri drove a truck into crowds at a Berlin Christmas market on December 19, killing 12 and injuring 48. Police said that the man was a 26-year-old born in the United Arab Emirates, but were unable to immediately confirm his nationality or identify the motive behind the violence. News website Spiegel Online reported that the individual was named Ahmad A., who had arrived in Germany seeking asylum and had contact with the militant scene as well as a history of mental health problems and drug use. The attacker had been scheduled to be deported, but the process had been held up as he lacked identity papers, Scholz said. Police and the city-state´s interior minister are expected to offer further details about the incident at a midday (1000 GMT) news conference on Saturday. High alert Germany has been on high alert about the threat of a terrorist attack since Amri´s rampage in Berlin, for which the Daesh group claimed responsibility. Militants have also carried out a string of random assaults in European countries using knives. Like the Hamburg attacker, Amri was a failed asylum seeker who could not be deported for lack of documents. Hamburg knife attacker 26 years old, born in United Arab Emirates The attack left a 50-year-old man dead and five others injured The similarity between the two cases risks reopening barely healed wounds over Chancellor Angela Merkel´s decision to allow more than million migrants into Germany since 2015, with just two months to go until legislative elections in September. "These criminals want to poison our free society with fear, but they will not succeed," mayor Scholz said. Politicians were quick to jump on the attack, with the anti-migrant, anti-Islam and anti-European party AfD condemning the chancellor. Improvised weapons The attacker stabbed to death a 50-year-old man, believed to be a German citizen, and "struck out wildly" at others, wounding a woman and four men aged 19 to 64, police said. Another 35-year-old man was hurt while overpowering the attacker in the street alongside other passers-by shortly after the killing. "A crowd of about 30 people ran out of the supermarket. They yelled that someone had been stabbed... we saw a man go past with a big knife, like a butcher´s knife, in his hand," eyewitness Ralf Woyna told AFP. Woyna had been sitting at a cafe opposite the entrance to the shop where the chase began. "Two customers who also looked Middle Eastern took all the chairs from the cafe and ran after him. I lost sight of them for a minute? I knew it was an attack straight away," he added. An amateur mobile phone video published by news site Spiegel Online showed a handful of pursuers confronting the attacker, a bearded man wearing a t-shirt and jeans, amid dense city traffic. They can be seen hurling chairs at him to keep him at a safe distance as he yells and brandishes the knife. According to Spiegel Online, the 35-year-old man injured during the struggle was the one who finally forced the suspect to the ground, using a pole. The witnesses slightly hurt the attacker while they were overpowering him, before handing him over to police. Newspaper Bild published images of the man lying handcuffed on the ground and sitting in the back seat of a police car, a bloodied white bag pulled over his head.
  13. BERLIN: One person was killed and several were injured in a knife attack in a supermarket in the northern German city of Hamburg on Friday, the city´s police said. One attacker was detained following the attack, they added, but warned the public to stay clear of the area in which the attack had taken place. "We have no clear information as to the motive or the number of wounded," Hamburg police said in a tweet.
  14. KANO: More than 50 people were killed in a Boko Haram attack on an oil exploration team in northeast Nigeria earlier this week, military, medical and humanitarian sources told AFP on Thursday. "The death toll keeps mounting," said one source involved in dealing with the aftermath of Tuesday´s attack near Magumeri, adding: "Now we have more than 50 and... more bodies are coming in." Details of the ambush, which was initially thought to be a kidnapping attempt, have been slow to emerge, as the military strictly controls access to Borno state, which has been the epicentre of Boko Haram violence. Telecommunications and other infrastructure have been severely damaged or destroyed in the conflict, which has left at least 20,000 dead and more than 2.6 million homeless since 2009. The military said on Wednesday that 10 people were killed in the attack, which targeted a team from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and geologists from the University of Maiduguri. But an aid agency worker in Magumeri, which is 50 kilometres (32 miles) northwest of the Borno state capital, Maiduguri, said: "As at 7:00 pm (1800 GMT) yesterday (Wednesday), 47 bodies were recovered from the bushes around Magumeri. "Eleven of them were badly burned in the attack. They were burned alive in their vehicle, which was stuck in a trench. "We buried them here because they couldn´t be taken to Maiduguri. "This evening (Thursday), six more bodies were recovered, including one soldier, and many more could be recovered because search and rescue teams are all over the place." A medical source at the Nigerian Army 7th Division headquarters at Maimalari barracks in Maiduguri said: "So far we have 18 dead soldiers. Ten were brought yesterday and eight more today." At the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH), a medical worker said: "We have 19 bodies at the moment of civilians. Fifteen of them were vigilantes (civilian militia) and four were staff from the university. "They have been taken for burial." The head of the academic staff union at the University of Maiduguri, Dani Mamman, confirmed they had received four bodies and said two of them were academics. "We got the impression our staff on the team were rescued because that was what the military spokesman said yesterday," he added. "But we were shocked when we were given four dead bodies. This means it wasn´t a rescue. "We still have other staff that are yet to be accounted for."
  15. A photo ? taken on July 25, 2017 ? shows a German helicopter crew on the ground at the Gao airport in Mali. AFP/Soulemain AG Anara BERLIN: There is no indication any outside forces were involved in the military helicopter crash in Mali in which two German peacekeepers were killed on a UN mission on Wednesday, a German military officer said. "The reason for the crash is still completely open. There is no evidence at this point of any outside factors," Vice Admiral Joachim Ruehle, deputy inspector general of the armed forces, told reporters. German military investigators will head to the scene on Thursday to search for the helicopter?s flight data recorder, he said. The Tiger helicopter crashed around 1220 GMT, about 70 km north of Gao, burning out completely with no survivors. The crash was reported by a second helicopter following in the mission. All routine flights by other Tiger helicopters would be suspended indefinitely, he said. Only flights deemed necessary for ?life and limb? would be conducted, with each decision to be made on a case-by-case basis. "We have now certainty that two soldiers have given their lives in the service of our country," German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen told a news conference in Berlin.
  16. The Independent via Getty LONDON: A 17-year-old girl who allegedly married a Daesh fighter via Skype appeared in a London court Wednesday over plans to carry out a terror attack in Britain. The teenager wed the extremist over the messaging service in September 2016, the court heard. She had already been arrested on a terrorism charge in August after authorities thwarted her plan to join the Daesh member in Syria, but was released on bail. Between December and April, the duo allegedly conspired to carry out a terror attack in Britain and the girl planned to receive hand grenades and a firearm. She is accused of receiving instructions on how to use the weapons as well as asking another person for help in carrying out the planned attack. The teenager ? who cannot be named for legal reasons ? was taken into custody on April 12 when she was formally charged with the earlier terrorism offence. The charges over the UK attack plot followed. Appearing in court on Wednesday, she spoke only to confirm her age and name before a further court date was set for August 11. The girl is not the first young Londoner to allegedly be involved with Daesh. In 2015, three teenage girls left their homes in east London and are believed to have travelled to Syria to join the militant group, following a classmate who left a few months earlier. Two of the trio were in touch with their families later that year to say they had married Daesh fighters, the Guardian reported at the time. Around 850 people with links to the UK have travelled to Syria to take part in the war, according to government figures.
  17. Unicredit bank logo is seen in the old city centre of Siena, Italy June 29, 2017. Photo: Reuters File MILAN: Suspected hackers have accessed client data of Italy's biggest lender, UniCredit, in two attacks in the past 10 months and affected about 400,000 Italian customers, the most serious data breach ever reported by a major Italian lender. No passwords were stolen in the attacks, which first occurred in September and October of 2016 and again in June and July of this year, but personal and banking details could have been accessed, UniCredit said in a statement. The attacks were carried out through an external commercial partner, which UniCredit did not identify. Wednesday's statement also did not describe how the intruders accessed the data nor when the bank became aware of the first intrusion. A source familiar with the matter said the bank had only uncovered the data breaches between Monday and Tuesday. "The bank immediately adopted all necessary measures to prevent a repeat of such intrusions," the bank said, adding that it had notified law-enforcement authorities. The head of UniCredit's information technology unit, Daniele Tonella, said none of the data accessed by the attackers allowed any financial transaction to be carried out. "We don't know why this data was acquired," he told Reuters, adding that it also did not know who was behind the attacks. Attacks on banks in recent years have become more sophisticated and resulted in mounting financial losses. They have evolved beyond data breaches, in which personal information are stolen, to include denial-of-service attacks which have knocked out access to online banking services for up to several days and even intrusions into core banking systems. Last November, attackers stole more than 2.5 million pounds ($3.25 million) from Tesco Bank in Britain's largest disclosed cyber heist. UniCredit shares were down 0.9 percent at 16.87 euros in late morning trade.

The militants "attacked an army camp in Karzali area of Khakrez district of Kandahar last night," MoD spokesman General Dawlat Waziri said. Afghan soldiers "bravely resisted", he said, killing more than 80 insurgents. Residents in the area described an hours-long attack launched by a 30-strong convoy carrying "hundreds" of Taliban who assaulted the base from multiple directions. Air support was called in, several residents told AFP, though that was not immediately confirmed by officials. The insurgents claimed the attack via their Twitter account. The resurgent Taliban have been ramping up their campaign against beleaguered government forces, underscoring rising insecurity in the war-torn country throughout the warmer weather fighting season. Afghan security forces, beset by killings, desertions and nonexistent "ghost soldiers" on the payroll, have been struggling to beat back insurgents since US-led NATO troops ended their combat mission in December 2014.

The insurgents have carried out more complex attacks against security forces in 2017. In April more than 140 soldiers are believed to have been killed on a base outside the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, one of the deadliest ever Taliban attacks on a military installation. While in early March gunmen disguised as doctors stormed the Sardar Daud Khan hospital -- the country´s largest military hospital -- in Kabul, killing dozens.

  24. KINSHASA: Armed men attacked a group of journalists and park rangers in a remote east Congo wildlife reserve overnight into Saturday, and an American journalist and three guards were missing, a local official said. The group attacked comprised the American and two Dutch journalists and 13 Congolese park rangers. They were near the town of Mambasa in Okapi Wildlife Reserve, istrator Alfred Bongwalanga told Reuters by telephone. The two Dutch journalists and all but three of the Rangers had been found and were safe. Bongwalanga did not know which of the several armed groups roaming eastern Congo was responsible. The kidnapping of locals and Westerners for ransom has been on the rise in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, a tinderbox of rebel groups and militias left over from a 1998-2003 war. But Bongwalanga said there was no evidence the journalist or guards had been kidnapped. "I can't confirm any hypothesis that this was a kidnapping? That does sometimes happen in Ituri (the province where the reserve lies) but it has been more than a year since the last one," he told Reuters by telephone. "The army has deployed. Search and rescue efforts are underway but this is a dense forest," he added. "We remain optimistic that we will find them." In May, armed bandits killed a Congolese park ranger and briefly kidnapped two conservation workers ? including a Frenchman ? during an ambush on South Kivu's Itombwe Reserve. Park rangers in east Congo trying to protect dwindling populations of elephants and gorillas often clash with poachers and other armed criminals who exploit the area's minerals, wildlife, and other resources.
