  7. An interior view of a supermarket is seen after an explosion in St Petersburg, Russia, in this photo released by Russia?s National Anti-Terrorism Committe on December 28, 2017. National Anti-Terrorism Committe/Handout via REUTERS MOSCOW: Russia?s Investigative Committee said on Sunday it had indicted on terrorism charges a suspect who allegedly organized and carried out a bombing that injured 13 people in a St. Petersburg supermarket this week. The committee said in a statement that the suspect, whose identity has not been disclosed by investigators, ?deliberately made and planted a homemade explosive device? that exploded on Wednesday at a branch of the Perekrestok supermarket chain in Russia?s second city. The suspect told investigators he had been motivated by ?hatred toward the organizers and participants? of mindset training sessions he used to attend, the committee said without providing further detail. Investigators said the suspect had also hidden two USB drives near the site of the blast containing information about his actions and photographs of the explosive device. The suspect will undergo psychological testing to assess his sanity. Investigators said has been followed by mental health professionals since the age of 19 for undisclosed issues. The indictment did not say how old he is now. The Daesh group claimed responsibility for the blast but did not provide evidence to support its assertion. The claim came after Russian President Vladimir Putin said the explosion, caused by what investigators said was a homemade bomb packed with pieces of metal, was an act of terrorism.
  8. Russian Emergency Ministry members gather outside a supermarket after an explosion in St Petersburg, Russia, December 27, 2017. REUTERS/Anton Vaganov/Files MOSCOW: Russian investigators on Saturday arrested a suspect linked to the Saint Petersburg bomb that tore through a supermarket, wounding 18 people, in an attack labelled by President Vladimir Putin as an "act of terror". Saint Petersburg ? Russia's second city and Putin's hometown ? was the scene of a deadly metro bombing in April and is set to host games during next year's football World Cup, raising fears of similar attacks. "The suspect is being questioned," Svetlana Petrenko ? a spokeswoman for the Russian Investigative Committee ? said in a statement. "The organiser and direct perpetrator who triggered an improvised explosive device on December 27 in a supermarket in Saint Petersburg was arrested during a special operation by the FSB", the security services added, according to Russian news agency Interfax. The news agency quoted a source close to the case as saying the suspect was 35-year-old Dmitry Lukyanenko ? a resident of Saint Petersburg and member of the nationalist "New Age" movement. The homemade bomb had been placed in a locker at the supermarket in northwestern Saint Petersburg on Wednesday. A pregnant woman was among those injured in the blast, which was claimed by Daesh. Eight people remain in hospital. Putin's 2015 decision to begin a military intervention in Syria's conflict on the side of President Bashar al-Assad has made Russia a priority target for extremist groups. 'Killed on the spot' Wednesday's bombing came after the FSB security service said earlier this month it had prevented a terror attack on a key Orthodox cathedral in Saint Petersburg with the help of America's CIA, which led Putin to thank US President Donald Trump. The city's subway was also targeted by a bomb attack in April that left 15 dead and dozens wounded, claimed by a little-known group linked to Al-Qaeda. Earlier this month, Alexander Bortnikov ? the head of Russia's FSB security service ? said that at least 4,500 Russians had left the country to fight with "terrorists" in the Middle East, North Africa, and other regions. Putin himself warned after Wednesday's bombing that armed criminals could be "liquidated on the spot". "As you know, an act of terror took place in Saint Petersburg yesterday," Putin told officers who took part in Russia's Syria campaign during an awards ceremony. He said he had ordered the nation's security services to "act decisively" and "liquidate bandits on the spot" if armed militants put up resistance. Over the past 20 years, Russia fought two wars with separatists in Chechnya, leading militants from the North Caucasus to frequently target Russians through suicide bombings and other attacks.
  9. Australian police stand near a crashed vehicle after they arrested the driver of a vehicle that had ploughed into pedestrians at a crowded intersection near the Flinders Street train station in central Melbourne, Australia December 21, 2017. REUTERS MELBOURNE: An Australian man of Afghan descent with a history of mental health issues drove a car into Christmas shoppers in the city of Melbourne on Thursday, injuring 19 people, but police said they did not believe the attack was terror-related. In January, four people were killed and more than 20 injured when a man drove into pedestrians just a few hundred meters away from Thursday?s attack. That too was not a terror attack. Jim Stoupas, the owner of a donut shop at the scene, told Reuters the vehicle was traveling up to 100 kph (62 mph) when it drove into the intersection packed with people, hitting one person after another. ?All you could hear was just ?bang bang bang bang bang? and screams,? Stoupas said in a telephone interview, adding the car came to rest by a tram stop. Police said they detained the 32-year-old driver, an Australian of Afghan descent with a history of assault, drug use and mental health issues. ?At this time, we don?t have any evidence or intelligence to indicate a connection with terrorism,? said the acting chief commissioner of Victoria State, Shane Patton. Four of the injured were in critical condition, including a pre-school aged boy who suffered a head injury. Police also detained a 24-year-old man at the scene who was filming the incident and had a bag with knifes. Patton said it was ?quite probable? the 24-year-old was not involved. The men had not been charged and their names have not been released by police. The attack took place on Flinders Street, a major road that runs alongside the Yarra River, in the central business district of Australia?s second-biggest city. Melbourne has installed about 140 concrete bollards in the city center to stop vehicle attacks by militants similar to recent attacks in Europe and the United States. ?We?ve seen an horrific act, an evil act, an act of cowardice perpetrated against innocent bystanders,? said the state premier, Daniel Andrews. Sydney, Australia?s biggest city, has also installed concrete barricades in main pedestrian thoroughfares. ?Our thoughts & prayers are with the victims & the emergency & health workers who are treating them,? Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said in a post on his official Twitter account.
  10. PARIS: French investigators have linked a man suspected of murdering a nine-year-old girl in Savoie with the unsolved killing of a soldier and are asking if he was behind other mystery deaths in the Alpine region, a prosecutor said. In late November, a judge placed Nordahl Lelandais, himself an ex-soldier and in custody since September, under formal investigation for the suspected kidnapping and murder of Maelys de Araujo. She was last seen at a family wedding in Chambery in late August. On Wednesday, Chambery Prosecutor Thierry Dran said 34-year-old Lelandais was now also under investigation for the killing of Arthur Noyer, 23, whose skull was found by a walker in September, after cell phone data put both men in the area where Noyer disappeared. ?We are going to look at all the disturbing disappearances which have taken place in this region,? Dran told a news conference, without detailing which other cases would be re-examined. Dran said that data trawls revealed that, after Noyer disappeared, Lelandais ran online searches using the keywords ?human body decomposition?. Lelandais, whose home is 30 kilometres (20 miles) from Chambery, admitted being in the area where Noyer went missing, but denied any involvement in his killing, the prosecutor said. The new allegations against Lelandais bring an added twist to the de Araujo case, which has gripped France since she went missing. Investigators have never identified a motive for the unsolved 2012 murder of Iraqi-born Briton Saad al-Hilli on a mountain road near the French Alps town of Annecy. He was found shot dead with his wife and mother-in-law in what appeared to be an execution-style attack that the couple?s two daughters survived.

New York Police Department officers stand guard near Port Authority Bus Terminal after reports of an explosion in Manhattan, New York DHAKA: Officials in Bangladesh are trying to track down the extended family and any known associates of Akayed Ullah, a Bangladeshi man US authorities say set off a homemade pipe bomb in a crowded New York City commuter hub on Monday. ?Police are looking for his family, but so far they?ve not been able to trace them,? said Abul Khair Nadim, the Chair of Musapur Union council, a local government body in the Chittagong division in southern Bangladesh, where Ullah?s family originally lived. Bangladesh?s police chief told Reuters late on Monday that 27-year-old Ullah had no criminal record in his home country, which he last visited in September. Ullah lived with his mother, sister and two brothers in Brooklyn and was a green card holder, said Shameem Ahsan, consul general of Bangladesh in New York. Ahmad Ullah, a relative of Ullah, who Reuters tracked down on Tuesday, said his cousin?s father had moved to the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka with his family many years ago. He said Ullah?s father had passed away about five years ago, and that Ullah had been through a normal public school education in Bangladesh before moving to the United States. Explosion rocks New York commuter hub, suspect in custody The suspect ? a US resident with no criminal record ? is from Bangladesh, the country?s police chief said, adding that he last visited his home country on September 8 Ullah, who had a homemade bomb strapped to his body, set off an explosion in an underground pedestrian corridor between New York?s Times Square and the Port Authority Bus Terminal at rush hour, injuring himself and three others in what New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called an attempted terrorist attack. A law enforcement official familiar with the investigation said investigators have found evidence that Ullah had watched Daesh propaganda on the internet. Bangladesh strongly condemned the attack in a statement saying, ?A terrorist is a terrorist irrespective of his or her ethnicity or religion, and must be brought to justice.?

But the mobile phone footage of the incident does not show the suspect, who laid on the footpath, carrying a firearm. The deceased has been identified as Asif Sardar, who was wanted in several cases including three robberies in Gujranwala. But the question remains why the police didn?t arrest him. The suspect could have revealed names and hideouts of his accomplices. The law enforcers also failed to explain what did they get from this fake encounter.
  19. Scott Ostrem, 47, is pictured in this undated handout booking photo obtanied by Reuters, November 2, 2017. Thornton Police Department/Handout via Reuters1 THORNTON: Police in Colorado on Thursday captured a man who they had said calmly walked into a suburban Denver Walmart and fatally shot three people at random before driving away. Scott Ostrem, 47, was taken into custody without incident a day after the shooting following a tip from the public, the Thornton Police Department said. Police said they have yet to establish a motive for the rampage and that Ostrem had only ?a minimal criminal history?. Video broadcast from CBS affiliate KCNC-TV showed the suspect being handcuffed by police against the side of an SUV as FBI agents carrying rifles and wearing body armour looked on. KCNC-TV said police SWAT team officers had ringed his last known address in suburban Adams County on Thursday morning when Ostrem drove past and was spotted. He was followed by law enforcement and journalists, KCNC-TV reported, and was arrested in the nearby suburb of Westminster after a ?quick pursuit?. Police had earlier released a surveillance camera photograph of a middle-aged white man wearing a black jacket and blue jeans. They also published a photo of the red four-door Mitsubishi hatchback he was believed to have fled in. Ostrem ?nonchalantly? entered the store in Thornton, about 16 kilometres (10 miles) northeast of downtown Denver, and opened fire on shoppers and employees shortly after 6 PM (8 PM EDT) on Wednesday, police spokesman Victor Avila told reporters. Two men were killed in the shooting and a woman who was shot was taken to a hospital where she died, according to police. No one else was wounded. ?What we have determined is that it is random as of right now,? Avila told reporters. ?As witnesses stated, the person came in and just shot towards a group.? The Walmart had been quickly surrounded by police and fire crews. Authorities initially said ?multiple parties? had been injured. Avila said there was no indication the shooting was an act of terrorism and no one had claimed responsibility. ?We can?t rule anything out,? he said. Ostrem is due to appear on Friday morning in Adams County District Court, where he will be advised on what charges he is being held for, a court spokeswoman said. Walmart customer Aaron Stephens, 44, of Thornton, told Reuters he was buying groceries at a self-checkout stand when he heard gunshots and ricocheting bullets. ?The employees started screaming and the customers started screaming? as people began to flee, he said. ?I ran out, too, because I didn?t want to get shot.? NBC television affiliate 9NEWS reported a woman whose son was in the Walmart said he heard about 30 gunshots. Early accounts of multiple casualties had revived painful memories for the Denver area, where a gunman killed 12 people in 2012 at a midnight screening of the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises at a theatre in the suburb of Aurora. The shooter, James Holmes, is serving a dozen consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole. In 1999 two 12th-graders fatally shot 12 fellow students and a teacher at Columbine High School in suburban Jefferson County. The pair, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, then committed suicide in the campus library.

  22. WASHINGTON: Police arrested a gunman suspected of killing three people and wounding two Wednesday at a suburban Maryland business park before shooting another man in neighbouring Delaware. "The suspect in this incident has been located and is in police custody," the Wilmington, Delaware police department said of Radee Prince, 37. Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy earlier told reporters that Prince "is a dangerous individual. This person shot six people in one day" in attacks that were not random. Prince had been sought "in connection with both multiple shooting incident early this morning in Edgewood, Maryland and another shooting incident at mid-morning today" in Wilmington, Delaware, a statement from police said. Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said three people died in the first incident at a granite business just before 9am. He confirmed a handgun was used and two other victims were transported to trauma centres in serious condition. When the shooter was still at large, several Edgewood-area schools were placed on lockdown, officials said, while the nearby set of popular Netflix show House of Cards was also reportedly secured. Gahler said Prince was associated with the company, Advanced Granite Solutions, where the first shooting occurred, near Baltimore. "This does appear to be a targeted attack, limited to that business," he said. Latest mass shooting Police were investigating Prince's connection with the firm, where all five victims of the first shooting were employed, Gahler said, declining to give further details about them. He said other people besides the five victims were on the premises when the shooting took place. Tracy said the victim in the second shooting identified the gunman. "They're known to each other and they've had some past history," he told a news conference. The suspect fled the first attack in a car registered in Delaware, Gahler said. Variety magazine reported that the set of House of Cards, which is partly filmed in Maryland, was placed on lockdown while police searched for the shooter. The executive producer of the series, Dana Brunetti, addressed the incident in a Facebook post. "Shooting near House of Cards set," Brunetti wrote. Some of the school lockdowns were later lifted, according to Harford County Public Schools. The incident was the latest mass shooting in a country where such killings have become tragically commonplace. On Oct 1, a gunman in a 32nd-floor casino hotel room rained fire down on concert-goers in Las Vegas, killing 58 and wounding more than 500. It was the deadliest shooting in recent US history. To date in 2017 there have been 286 mass shootings ? nearly one per day ? according to the online Gun Violence Archive.
  23. [embed_video1 url= style=center] KARACHI: The mystery of Karachi knife attacks remains unresolved with legal complications restricting transfer of the suspect to the megapolis from Gujranwala, who believed to be involved in a series of incidents that sparked fear in Karachi. At least 15 women were injured in attacks by a knife-wielding man n Karachi between September 25 to October 5. Later, there had been no clue as to where did the suspect go. With seven different cases registered, police in Karachi began connecting the dots, leading to a suspect, Wasim, involved in similar incidents in Sahiwal, Punjab, who got out on bail a month and a half ago. Police claims to nab mastermind of Karachi knife attacks 'Waseem was arrested in a joint operation with the Punjab police,' DIG East Sultan Khowaja said However, it has become difficult for the Karachi Police to bring suspect, arrested from Gujranwala, to Karachi for not following the protocols. Sources said the Karachi Police managed to get the suspect nabbed by CIA Punjab, without bringing the matter in the notice of Punjab Home Department. The Karachi Police is unable to bring the suspect to the megapolis for they have not yet submitted a formal request to the Punjab Home Department seeking his transit remand. Moving the suspect from Punjab to Karachi remains out of question without a transit remand. On the other hand, Wasim denies involvement in Karachi knife attacks and claims that he has never been to the megapolis in his life. The attacker, who has succeeded in evading arrest so far, has posed a challenge to the authorities and caused a scare among the public after repeated attacks by a sharp object. 'Suspect a thin man, aged 20-29' Karachi police released pictures ? screengrabs from the CCTV footage ? of the suspect earlier this month wherein the assailant can be seen riding a motorcycle moments before attacking one of the victims. "The suspect appears to be a thin man, aged 20-29," DIG East Sultan Khawaja said, adding that "he appears to be 5 feet, 7-9 inches tall" and usually rides a red motorcycle.
  24. NAIROBI: A student suspected of joining in an armed raid that killed six at a school in Kenya´s far north Saturday was stoned to death by angry locals and his body burned, officials said. The suspect ? a suspended student at the school in Lokichogio ? was arrested before irate locals forced their way into the police station and dragged him from his cell. He was being held over the school attack that left five students and a security guard at the boarding school dead. "Six people were killed in the attack, including students, and we have others injured," said Seif Matata, Turkana county´s commissioner. Matata said the incident occurred at around 03:00 am (00:00 GMT) while students at Lokichogio Mixed Secondary School were asleep in their dormitories. Turkana governor Josphat Nanok said 18 people suffered bullet wounds in the attack. Members of the Toposa tribal militia from South Sudan, 200 kilometres (124 miles) to the north, are believed to be responsible for the violence. Matata alleged that a suspended student, identified by officials as 20-year-old Abraham Lochor from South Sudan, led the raid. "The suspect was held at Kakuma police station for interrogation over the morning killings, we are trying to establish how they managed to get him. It´s unfortunate," said Turkana police chief Ronald Opili. The Kenya Red Cross said it had evacuated those injured in the school attack by plane for emergency treatment. Turkana, an arid region bordering South Sudan, is awash with small arms and violent clashes between competing communities over resources and territory are common, as is armed raiding of cattle and livestock.
  25. [embed_video1 url= style=center] KARACHI: Police teams were dispatched to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Thursday to arrest the prime suspect in the case of a couple?s electrocution in Karachi. A tribal jirga (council) had ordered the couple's execution in October when the families had lodged their case with the influential group of elders following their elopement. The man who ordered the electrocution of a teenage couple Teenage couple were killed by their own kin, on the orders of a tribal Jirga The final challan of the case will be presented after DNA reports of the murdered boy and girl are received. Four of the accused, who were arrested by the police, are in jail on judicial remand. The couple was tied to a wooden bed and electrocuted by family members last month. Police said the girl was aged 15 or 16 and the man was around 18 years old. "The (jirga) decided that the girl would be electrocuted by her own father and uncle and the boy by his father and uncle," police officer Amanullah Marwat told AFP, adding that the families later buried the bodies in secret. Hundreds of women are murdered by their relatives each year after allegedly bringing shame on their families in Pakistan. Karachi ?honour killing?: Authorities exhume couple?s bodies for examination Tribal elder had ordered a teenage couple to be electrocuted by their families as punishment for eloping Under the previous legislation, the culprits could escape punishment if they were pardoned by members of their family. But in July last year the high-profile murder of social media star Qandeel Baloch, whose brother confessed to the killing, reignited calls for reform. Parliament has since passed a law aimed at scrapping the ability to forgive "honour" killers. But critics contend some loopholes still exist.
