1. UK: More Muslim men arrested for forcing underage girls into prostitution
A gang of four men have been found guilty of sexually exploiting and drugging vulnerable underage girls who prosecutors say were passed around 'like commodities'.
Newcastle Crown Court heard the offences - including trafficking for sexual exploitation, sexual activity with a child and supplying drugs - were committed between 2007 and 2014.
Girls as young as 13 and 14 became 'in thrall' to men who controlled them and lured them to properties where drugs and alcohol were made available, the Evening Chronicle reported.
The case is the latest set of convictions to be secured under Northumbria Police's Operation Sanctuary, and follows recent recent sentences for another Newcastle gang for similar offences.
Ribas Asad, 29, was convicted of sexual assault and sexual activity with a child; Palla Pour, 25, was found guilty of sexual activity with a child; Soran Azizi, 28, was convicted of sex trafficking; and Saman Obaid, 29, was found guilty of supplying drugs.

4. Most dangerous city in Europe is in France, with 40 per cent Muslim population
Muslims have now set up unofficial checkpoints in various parts of Marseille.
The eruption has refocused attention on Marseille’s long-standing reputation as a European drug-smuggling hub, a place where entire neighborhoods have slipped away from police control and fallen under the command of gangsters who earn millions importing and selling North African hashish and settle turf disputes with AK-47 assault rifles.
“Marseille is sick with its violence,” Interior Minister Manuel Valls said.
Vowing to squash the drug trade and end the violence, Valls last week dispatched 250 paramilitary and other national police officers to reinforce the usual deployment of around 3,000.

Two security officers and a border policeman were murdered Tuesday morning in a suspected terror attack in the town of Har Adar outside Jerusalem. Another Israeli was badly wounded.
According to the Border Police, the Palestinian assailant approached the town's gate posing as a laborer. When the officers manning the gate grew suspicious of him because of his unusual clothing, he pulled out his weapon and opened fire.
7. Swedish mosque in no-go-zone gutted by arson
Note: The Swedish media have ducked the issue of no-go-zones by renaming them as “vulnerable areas”, in order to ascribe the problems of “higher criminality” to poverty instead of a large Islamic population.
Swedish police have arrested a man suspected of starting a fire that destroyed parts of a mosque in the central city of Örebro.
The blaze in the Vivalla district mosque began around 2am Tuesday, with early reports suggesting it may have been started deliberately.
Swedish newspaper Expressen quotes the Örebro Moske caretaker, Hassan Mountagui, as saying he witnessed a masked intruder in the building prior to the blaze.
Meanwhile, Aftonbladet report that the mosque has been the subject of threats in the past.
(Police say that there is no religious motive for the arsonist.)

10. Grooming ring probe in Glasgow after teenagers “exploited for sex”
A PROBE has been launched into an alleged grooming ring targeting teenagers in Glasgow’s city centre.
Girls as young as 14 are thought to have been targeted by men hanging around the four corners area of the city - at the junction of Argyle Street and Union Street.
Officers are investigating the claims after relatives of one of the victims contacted the authorities.
A social work source told the Evening Times the area is “rife” with child exploitation problems.
One of the victims, a 17-year-old girl, is understood to have been taken to houses in Govanhill and Dennistoun for sex with multiple men, but believes the man who took her there was her boyfriend. […]
The relative said: “This really is just our worst nightmare, it’s this Rochdale and Rotherham-type stuff but it’s happening here in Glasgow in a big way.
“Nobody seems to be doing anything to stop it, all the girls have been made to believe these men are their boyfriends.
“Its white females they are hitting on, aged 14 to 19.”
