  1. Suicide bomb attack on Kabul restaurant ‘kills 14’ (BBC, Jan 17, 2014)
    “At least 14 people have been killed in a suicide bomb attack on a restaurant popular with foreigners in the Afghan capital, officials say. Foreigners and Afghans are among the dead following the blast in Kabul’s Wazir Akbar Khan neighbourhood. The area is home to a number of foreign embassies and organisations. The attack happened on a Friday evening when the Taverna du Liban restaurant would have been busy with diners. A suicide attacker detonated his explosives outside the gate of the heavily-fortified restaurant, a high-level security source told the BBC. Two gunmen then entered the restaurant. They were shot dead by security forces who arrived quickly at the scene. Witnesses said they heard about 20 minutes of gunfire following the blast. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it had been deliberately targeting foreign officials…”

    Presumably because it would cost the national health service a fortune if so many patients survived to require further treatment. (These are NOT isolated incidents, but daily occurrences)

  3. #3 He is not just talking about the upcoming elections, he is talking about the EU falling apart when the leftist economic policies of the world finally collapse the entire worlds economy.

    #5 Once again the left shows it doesn’t believe in the rule of law they arrested the wife of an Indian diplomat and the current mess started. It is paranoid to ask if they did this deliberately to destroy the friendly relations between India and the US but everyone that follows the Obama scandals has to be asking themselves that question.

  5. 9 wounded by car bomb in Russia’s Dagestan

    MAKHACHKALA, Russia (AP) — Police say nine people have been wounded in a bombing in Russia’s southern province of Dagestan.

    Fatima Ubaidatova, a spokeswoman for the local police in Dagestan, said unidentified attackers on Friday fired a rocket-propelled grenade at a restaurant in the provincial capital, Makhachkala. No one was hurt, but when police arrived at the spot, a bomb placed in a car parked nearby went off. The explosion wounded nine people, including two police officers.

    Dagestan has become the center of an Islamist insurgency that has spread across the Caucasus region after two separatist wars in Chechnya. The shootings and bombings of police and other officials have become a daily occurrence in the region, which is located about 500 kilometers (300 miles) east of Sochi, the venue of the Winter Olympics.

  6. INDIA – Newspaper office attacked, journo held for publishing Prophet’s photo

    The Odisha Police have arrested a sub-editor of a leading regional daily for publishing a photograph of Prophet Muhammad, triggering widespread protests by journalists on Wednesday.

    The arrest came after a mob on Tuesday ransacked two offices of Odia newspaper Samaj, which carried the photograph and a small story in its edition on the occasion of the Prophet’s birthday.

    Demonstrations were held at the newspaper’s head office in Cuttack, and branch offices in Balasore and Rourkela. Protests turned violent at the branch offices, where printing machines and computers were destroyed. The police are yet to book anyone on arson charges.

    Sub-editor Jitendra Prasad Das, who apparently used the photograph after downloading it from the internet, was arrested on Tuesday night. “He was booked for outraging religious feelings,” S Pravin Kumar, Cuttack deputy commissioner of police, said.
