  1. Putin Strikes Back: He Just Made A Hugely Aggressive Military Move Seeking ‘Revenge’

    In November, Syrian rebels gleefully paraded before the camera as they made a video mocking the fate of the Russian pilot killed when his jet was shot down near the Turkish border.

    Now, there is a price to pay.

    On Monday, Russian forces rampaged through a Syrian town on the lookout for a man who has claimed to have killed the pilot.

    Not long after Turkish jets downed the Russian plane, Turkish citizen Alparslan Çelik said in a video he had killed the pilot after the Russian parachuted to what he thought was safety. Çelik said he killed the man in revenge for Russian bombing raids.

    “There is no place for a person who has bombed civilian Turkmens every day,” Çelik said, according to Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News. He reportedly added, “Reprisal is the most natural right.”

    Russia agrees.

  2. A teenage boy who took part in the gang rape of a 23-year-old woman in Stockholm has disappeared from the juvenile detention centre where he was staying, reports a Swedish tabloid.

    The 16-year-old boy was found guilty of gang raping the woman on the island of Södermalm at the end of last summer by Stockholm District Court in November along with another teenager. They were both from north Africa

    ‘Around 40’ shots fired in fight at French refugee camp

    Four refugees were injured, two from being shot, one from being stabbed while the fourth victim was bludgeoned, reports say.

  3. Danish People’s Party: More asylum restrictions coming

    Denmark will probably tighten its asylum policies further, the country’s influential anti-immigration party said on Wednesday, a day after lawmakers passed a controversial bill allowing authorities to seize valuables from refugees.

    Progress Party: Norway should take refugees’ valuables

    As a similar plan is garnering international headlines in Denmark, some within the Progress Party are now calling on Norway to confiscate valuables from asylum seekers.

  4. Sweden to expel up to 80,000 rejected asylum seekers

    Interior minister Anders Ygeman tells Swedish media of plan to use charter flights to repatriate thousands amid toughening of immigration rules

    Sweden intends to expel up to 80,000 asylum seekers who arrived in 2015 and whose applications had been rejected, interior minister Anders Ygeman said on Wednesday.

    “We are talking about 60,000 people but the number could climb to 80,000,” the minister was quoted as saying by Swedish media, adding that the government had asked the police and authorities in charge of migrants to organise their expulsion.

    EU migration crisis: Greece threatened with Schengen area expulsion

    Ygeman said the expulsions, normally carried out using commercial flights, would have to be done using specially chartered aircraft, given the large numbers, staggered over several years.

    The proposed measure was announced as Europe struggles to deal with a crisis that has seen tens of thousands of refugees arrive on Greek beaches, with the passengers – mostly fleeing conflict in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan – undeterred by cold, wintry conditions.

    The United Nations says more than 46,000 people have arrived in Greece so far this year, with more than 170 people killed making the dangerous crossing.

    Sweden, which is home to 9.8 million people, is one of the European Union countries that has taken in the largest number of refugees in relation to its population. Sweden accepted more than 160,000 asylum seekers in 2015.

    But the number of migrant arrivals has dropped dramatically since Sweden enacted systematic photo ID checks on travellers on 4 January.

    Swedish officials on Tuesday called for greater security at overcrowded asylum centres a day after the fatal stabbing of an employee at a refugee centre for unaccompanied youths.

    The alleged attacker was a young male residing at a centre for 14- to 17-year-olds in Mölndal, near Gothenburg, on Sweden’s west coast.

    The employee was 22-year-old Alexandra Mezher, according to Swedish media reports, whose family was originally from Lebanon. A motive for the attack was not immediately clear.

    Her death has led to questions about overcrowded conditions inside some centres, with too few adults and employees to take care of children, many traumatised by war.

    In neighbouring Denmark, meanwhile, the government this week approved legislation to seize the valuables of refugees in the hope of limiting the flow of migrants.

    Some have likened the Danish proposals to the confiscation of gold and other valuables from Jews by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

  5. CNN -Migrants in Norway battle to find hope

    Migrants tell CNN’s Phil Black they came to Norway to escape the horrors of Syria but now hope this church can protect them from the Norwegian government.

  6. An Uber driver in New York city picked up a nine-months-pregnant passenger who had a silky terrier (kind of looks like a yorkie) for a service dog.

    The driver did not want the dog in his car, yanked it off the pregnant passenger’s lap and slammed it into the ground so hard he injured one front leg and dislocated the tiny dog’s hip.

    When the cops were called, he insisted that he did not hurt the dog but that the 9-months-pregnant, non-white passenger had hurled racial slurs at him and punched him in the face several times.

    I guess for no reason at all.

    One guess what the driver’s name is!!!
