2. Two security personnel killed, 26 hurt by bombs in South Thailand
A soldier and a policeman were killed and 26 other people wounded by two bombs believed to have been set off by Muslim separatists in southern Thailand on Thursday, police said.

4. Sweden Charges Syrian Migrant with War Crimes
STOCKHOLM (AP) — Swedish prosecutors have charged a Syrian asylum-seeker and a former fighter with Damascus’ government forces with war crimes on suspicion that he posed in front of dead or wounded combatants from the Islamic State group.
Prosecutor Karolina Wieslander said Thursday that 33-year-old Mohammad Abdullah had committed “a serious violation” of the victims’ “personal dignity” under international law when he knowingly posed in January 2014. Abdullah says he was ordered to pose.
Meanwhile, the Swedish government appears to be rewarding people who fought and killed on behalf of the Islamic State.
Jihadis with Swedish passports who return from fighting with Islamic State in the Middle East will be offered taxpayer-funded driving lessons, housing, and even debt cancellation.
Several municipalities in Sweden are making plans for how they plan to “re-integrate” returning jihadis as Iraqi and Kurdish soldiers launch an offensive on Islamic State’s terrorist stronghold, Mosul.
The conclusion of authorities in the medieval city of Lund, which has dealt with returning fighters before, is that defectors from the Salafist supremacist terror group should be handled in the same way as those who leave the organised crime scene.

7. Montreal imams won't be charged under "hate speech" laws
Two Islamic preachers accused of giving anti-Semitic sermons in 2014 won’t face charges, a spokesman for Quebec’s Crown prosecutor’s office said Thursday.
Jean-Pascal Boucher said the statute of limitations had expired and, therefore, the Crown will not proceed.
“The prosecutor responsible for the file conducted a careful analysis of the evidence,” he said. “And came to the conclusion that the statute of limitations had been reached and as a consequence, no charges will be brought in this case.”
The Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) filed a criminal complaint with police in march 2017 after it discovered two videos online of Arabic sermons recorded at the Al-Andalous Islamic Center in Montreal in 2014.
