1. Chechen Migrant Murdered, Put in Trash Can Seven-Year-Old Girl Because he Had a “Bad Day”
A 16-year-old born in Chechnya confessed to the murder of a seven-year-old girl in Vienna this week after he lured her to his home where he stabbed the child in a bathtub because he was “having a bad day”.
The 16-year-old, identified as Robert K., is said to have invited seven-year-old Hadishat, who lived in the same apartment complex in Vienna’s Döbling district, to his family’s apartment Friday and stabbed her in the neck until she died, Kronen Zeitung reports.
Hadishat had been playing with other children in the apartment complex courtyard before the murder and was well-known to both the murderer and his family as she had previously visited the apartment to play with the family’s cat.

2. Belgium migrants: Girl shot after police van chase
The girl was in a van carrying 30 Kurdish migrants which had been pursued for an hour in southern Belgium.
The chase, which began on a motorway near the town of Namur, involved a scuffle, police said.
A police spokesman said they did not know whether the fatal shot had been fired by a police officer.
A police investigation has been launched into how the girl died, including whether there were guns in the van.
An initial report from the emergency services had stated mistakenly that the cause of death was a head injury.
“The autopsy determined the cause of death was a bullet that entered the cheek,” prosecutor Frederic Bariseau told the AFP news agency.
Belgian media reported that the girl, who was with her mother, had been held out of a van window -apparently to keep the police at a distance. Local prosecutors told the BBC they could not confirm the reports.

8. Gunmen Attack Church in Russia’s Chechnya Region, Killing 3
MOSCOW — Four gunmen stormed a church in Russia’s predominantly Muslim region of Chechnya on Saturday, killing at least one churchgoer and two police officers, according to authorities.
All the attackers were killed in an exchange of gunfire with the police at the Archangel Michael Church in the center of Grozny, the capital, according to the Investigative Committee of Russia, an internal security agency.
The gunmen initially took hostages, the leader of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, said, adding that the assailants were armed with knives, hatchets and homemade explosives as well.
It was not immediately clear whether there was any link between the attackers and extremist groups. But Chechnya has experienced attacks by Islamist extremists before, including those who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.
9. Durham Police officer Mohammed Perwaze “repeatedly raped girl”
A police officer accused of repeatedly raping a young girl once told her: "I can love you more than your puppy ever will", a jury has heard.
Durham officer Mohammed Perwaze, 45, denies four counts of rape and 14 other charges relating to the girl. He also denies cruelty towards two boys.
A Sheffield Crown Court jury was told the alleged abuse of the girl began when she was eight years old.
Prosecutors said the girl had been "broken down" by constant attacks.
Simon Reevell QC, prosecuting, said: "By the time she was a young adult, she had quite literally been broken down by this man so he could use her for his sexual gratification because of the sexual attraction he had had for her since she was eight years old."
He said on the surface the officer was "respectable", but described a catalogue of sexual assaults, which included tying the girl to a bed.
10. Polish Immigrants Returning Home Cite Fear of Terrorism, Anti-White Racism by Black Brits
WARSAW, Poland: Polish migrants living in and leaving the United Kingdom for their native country have cited concerns about life in contemporary Britain, with issues including economics, anti-white racism, and terrorist attacks.
While the readjustment of the British economy, rapid growth in Poland, and the pending departure of Britain from the European Union account for some returnees, Polish emigres to Britain interviewed for a feature in Polish magazine wSieci also revealed a number of other concerns.
One of those is a fear of terrorism after a series of deadly attacks in 2017. Among those were the Westminster Bridge attack which saw one Polish victim in the eight dead and 41 injured, the Manchester Arena bombing which saw two Polish victims among the 22 dead and 512 injured, and the London Bridge attack which killed eight and injured 48.
