1. Meet the refugee ISIS “brides” still loyal to the caliphate
Thousands more people have left the last remaining area held by the Islamic State group in Syria. Militants have been allowed to surrender, and civilians allowed to leave, through a human corridor established by Kurdish-led forces.
The final battle for the so-called caliphate is taking place in the tiny town of Baghouz, on the Iraqi border.
Only a few hundred fighters are thought to remain. Most families have been taken up to the Al-Hawl refugee camp in the north-east of the country, where we spent the day.

3. Stabbing of guards at French prison treated as terror attack
PARIS — A prison inmate suspected of injuring two guards with a knife and locking himself inside a visiting room has been arrested, French Interior minister Christophe Castaner said Tuesday.
He said in a tweet the inmate’s wife was also arrested in the operation led by a special police unit.
Anti-terror prosecutors have launched an investigation into the incident at the Conde-sur-Sarthe prison, in western France.
Justice Minister Nicole Belloubet said the prisoner’s wife was visiting him and he locked himself in the room after stabbing the guards with a ceramic knife. She said the guards’ injuries are not life-threatening.
Belloubet said “there’s no doubt about the terrorist nature of the attack.”
The Justice Ministry said the inmate had convictions for kidnapping leading to death, armed robbery and glorifying terrorism.
4. Viktor Orbán: “The role of Soros in European politics cannot be disregarded”
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán gave an interview to the German Sunday newspaper Welt am Sonntag.
One of the issues discussed in the interview was the newly launched attack by the European People's Party on Fidesz. As Viktor Orbán argued, the manoeuvre is nothing more than a leftist power technique, which aims to weaken not solely Hungary, but also the EPP.
“If we are gone they will attack the Italians, and then the Austrians. There will always be someone whom they attack, it is the essence of their power technique.”
This is called the salami-slice strategy, and its aim is to weaken the EPP and allow the Socialists and the Left to grasp power on a European level.
5. Maryland Sheriff: “We will not comply” with gun license bill
SALISBURY, Md. — Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis has a message for Maryland lawmakers if they pass legislation regulating ownership of rifles and shotguns: His office will not comply.
“The way the bill is written, it is impossible to comply,” Lewis said Monday. “I can’t send (my deputies) on a suicide mission.”
If any of those bills required his deputies to take away guns for law-abiding citizens, Lewis said he wouldn’t do it.
Videos of those comments were uploaded to social media. Maryland sheriffs are elected officials and sworn to uphold state laws and the U.S. Constitution.

This is the moment angry shoppers confronted a security guard who told a blind man with a guide dog to leave a popular shopping centre.
In the video, filmed on Saturday at Bluewater in Kent, a female shopper can be heard saying “you do know they're allowed everywhere?” before the blind man said he would carry on shopping.
Meanwhile, the security guard who asked the man to leave turns around so his back is facing the camera. [...]
“We then noticed the security guard started to follow them and then he said ‘you've got to leave, you can't have a dog in here.’”
“The man and his wife politely explained that he was blind and he was allowed to be with a dog. It was awful that he was being targeted like that. I felt so sorry for him.”
