Abu Sayyaf militants killed nine people and wounded 16 others in an early morning attack Monday on a southern Philippine village which may have been in retaliation for a series of battle setbacks, officials said.

9. Austria cracks down on foreign-funded mosques, madrasas
“‘This is a very serious matter where suspicions have been confirmed and investigations have been widened.’
The Austrian government has launched a major crackdown on foreign-funded Islamic organisations operating in the country. The Ministry of Education has initiated a complaint against an Islamic private school in Vienna. An investigation has raised the strong suspicion “that it is being run without any kind of registration,” Education Minister Sonja Hammerschmid said on Sunday. "Additionally, suspicions have been confirmed against other Islamic associations regarding the foreign-funding that is prohibited [under law].”
Due to modern Austria’s emergence out of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which included Muslim minorities of the Balkan region, Islam is subject to Islamgesetz, or the law regulating Islam. This almost century-old law was revised in 2015 and explicitly forbids mosques or Islamic groups from receiving foreign funding. Foreign-funded madrasas and mosques are often recruiting and training grounds for Jihadi groups in the West.”
10. India's top court: Instant divorce among Muslims unlawful
India's Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down the Muslim practice that allows men to instantly divorce their wives as unconstitutional.
The bench, comprising five senior judges of different faiths, deliberated for three months before issuing its order in response to petitions from seven Muslim women who had been divorced through the practice known as triple talaq.
Indian law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on NDTV that since the court deemed the practice unconstitutional there is no need for any further legislative action by the government.
The decision was widely lauded by women's rights activists as a step toward granting Muslim women greater equality and justice.
