1. Pakistani-born father of five faces years in jail after he is convicted of grooming girls as young as 12 with McDonald’s, cash, cigarettes and alcohol


  • Married businessman Mohammed Khubaib convicted of raping girl, 14
  • Also guilty of trafficking girls as young as 12 over more than two years
  • Co-defendant cleared of raping 16-year-old and seven trafficking charges 
  • Conviction part of Cambridgeshire Police’s probe into child sex offences 

Following a trial he was found guilty of forcing a 14-year-old girl to perform a sex act on him and nine counts of trafficking for sexual exploitation involving girls aged from 12 to 15 between November 2010 and January 2013.

His South African friend Manase Motaung, 32, was cleared of raping a 16-year-old and seven trafficking charges, involving six girls.

Khubaib’s conviction brings the total number of people to be convicted under Operation Erle to ten, of which five are of Pakistani origin.

(I wonder what the bookies would give odds at that the other 5 are also muslims)

3. “Like the Bad Weather, Danish Society Isn’t Optional”: Queen of Denmark to Immigrants

Queen Margrethe of Denmark has made a departure from normal political neutrality on contentious subjects to warn migrants to Denmark of the level of behaviour expected of them on arrival.

Her comments come in the aftermath of a deadly terror attack in Copenhagen earlier this year, where a conference on political art – including cartoons depicting Mohammad, the Islamic religious figure – was attacked by an Islamist with an assault rifle. Two were killed and five injured as Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein sprayed the meeting with bullets, as he attempted to kill Swedish artist Lars Vilks. Another died when he shot a Jewish man in the head outside a Synagogue. […] “They can go to the mosque when they want – anything else would be unreasonable – but when they begin to do things that aren’t consistent with the overarching patterns of Danish society, they must realize that that will not do.

4. Egypt imposes life jail penalty for cross-border tunnel use

(Reuters) – People who dig and use cross-border tunnels in Egypt could face a maximum penalty of life in jail, state news agency MENA said on Sunday, citing amendments to the penal code targeting activity in the frontier area near the Gaza Strip.

Egypt declared a state of emergency in the border area last year after at least 33 security personnel were killed in attacks in the Sinai Peninsula, a remote but strategic region bordering Israel, Gaza and the Suez Canal.

There were several militant attacks in the Sinai on Sunday.

The amendments to the penal code were passed by presidential decree, MENA said.

5. This appears to be the aftermath of a bomb attack in Aleppo Syria April 11 2015. Fairly graphic but not by IS standards and not deliberate for shock value but a document of what took place. Many appear to have been killed or seriously wounded in this attack.

7. ‘Anonymous’ hacks Montreal police website

Around 10:30 p.m. ET on Friday, the Montreal police website went offline, followed minutes later by that of the Montreal police brotherhood. As of 10 a.m. on Saturday, the former was still not working.

Anonymous said via Twitter the police were targeted because of the accusations of brutality during the recent student demonstrations, which have seen thousands take to the streets nightly in protest of recent austerity measures. 

The group also indicated it will “ruin the life” of a police officer shown pepper spraying protesters in Montreal. 

This cyberattack comes on the heels of similar attacks on the websites of Toronto police and the City of Ottawa.

Palestinian authorities in the Gaza Strip executed a miracle male goat which oozed milk by slaughtering the animal following public upheaval about the curing power of its milk.

Newspapers said authorities paid $680 (Dh2,500) compensation to its owner Jassir Abu Al Saeed after carrying out the execution.

An official at the ministry of agriculture in the Strip said the goat was slaughtered and its meat was sold to a wealthy Palestinian man following reports that it was oozing milk and that the milk can cure many diseases.

“We decided to execute the goat after it created upheaval and confusion among the residents, who mistakenly believed it is a blessed animal and that its milk can cure diseases,” said Zakaria Al Kafarna, veterinary services director at the ministry.

“The goat was oozing milk because of hormones defects…the milk does not cure any illness…on the contrary it could harm the body,” he said.
