1. Did we just dodge 9/11 2.0?
On July 22, 2018 Faisal Hussein, a Canadian-born 29-year-old male of Pakistani heritage and Muslim faith, opened fire with a handgun on citizens along Toronto’s Danforth Avenue, killing two and wounding 13. After an exchange of gunfire with police Faisal Hussein turned his gun on himself.
Faisal was known to police. He had posted favourable comments on jihadi websites and had recently visited Afghanistan.
In mid-2017 Faisal’s brother, Farad Hussain, suffered an overdose. He has been in a coma ever since.
In September 2017 firefighters responded to a carbon monoxide alarm at a house on Liatris Drive, in Pickering, Ontario (40 kilometres east of Toronto). Inside the house they found a cache of weapons, including 31 identical high-end handguns, and 42 kilograms of carfentanil. It was the largest carfentanil find in North America; if not the world. This house was Farad Hussain’s home at the time of his overdose.

TEHRAN (AFP) - Iran's currency hit a record low on Sunday of 100,000 rials to the dollar amid a deepening economic crisis and the imminent return of full US sanctions.
The unofficial rate stood at 102,000 rials by midday, according to Bonbast, one of the most reliable sites for tracking the Iranian currency.
The rate was confirmed by a trader who spoke on condition of anonymity to AFP.
The rial has lost half its value against the dollar in just four months, having broken through the 50,000-mark for the first time in March.

5. Video of tourists killed in Tajikistan shows “deliberate attack”
Footage suggests cyclists were murdered after being rammed off the road by black sedan.
New footage has emerged that appears to show four western cyclists killed in Tajikistan were the victims of a deliberate attack that began with them being forced off the road and ended in an assault with knives and guns.
The deaths of the four people – two Americans, one Swiss and one Dutch citizen – were originally reported as a hit-and-run incident that occurred on Sunday about 150 miles south of the capital, Dushanbe.
Tajik officials said on Monday that the cyclists, who were touring the former Soviet country, had been attacked with knives and firearms after being rammed by the car, which indicated that the deaths were a result of murder.
The video, released by RFE/RL’s Tajik Service, shows a black sedan swerving to run down people spread across a rural road. The unidentified person filming the video reacts with surprise as the car appears to knock a person off the side of the road.
