3. Libyan Comic Con raided by armed militants for "attack on Islam and fascination with foreigners"
A comic convention was deemed blasphemous in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, where an Islamist paramilitary group shut down a gathering of superhero fans for "inciting violence," detaining and reportedly beating some 20 participants.
The second Libyan Comic Con opened in Tripoli on Thursday, bringing together local comic book lovers and cosplayers who dressed up as their favorite heroes. The party, however, was crashed on Friday by the so-called RADA Special Deterrence Forces (SDF) paramilitary group, which raided the event, detained some 20 people and seized computers and other equipment. [...]
The militants told the detainees, according to the anonymous organizer, that they had committed an impressive number of crimes against public morals, which included agnosticism, atheism, masonic ideas, believing in Halloween, distorting the minds of youth and even abandoning Islam altogether.
The SDF militants said they were 'rescuing' the youth from Comic Con, an event they called 'destructive' and 'foreign' to Islam and Libya. “This sort of festival imported from abroad exploits the weakness in their religious faith and their fascination with foreign cultures,” the SDF statement read.
4. UK: Home office thwarts SAS initiative to stop ISIS jihadis at airports with iris scanners
THE GOVERNMENT has refused to install high-tech eye scanners at airports despite the SAS backing the move as a 'failsafe' way to stop terrorists entering the country, it has been revealed.
The Home Office has decided not to back the high tech £125,000 initiative, prompting an outcry among security officials.
Over the last three months, SAS troops have registered the iris measurements of hundreds of jihadis captured in Syria to identify them in case they try to re-enter the UK.
Raffaello Pantucci, of the Royal United Services Institute think-tank, said: 'Many jihadis are returning or travelling to the UK with deadly intent, while others will seek to recruit a new generation of terrorists to the cause.'
5. Christians pelted with ROCKS in shocking attack on town; four churches forced to shut
FOUR churches have been forced to shut after Christian worshipers were pelted with rocks in a shocking series of attacks.
The coordinated attacks took place in the Egyptian region of Minya, south of Cairo, where church leaders are now pleading for support.
After keeping quiet for two weeks to help officials carry out investigations, Coptic Orthodox leaders have now spoken out and accused Egypt of treating Christian prayers “as a crime”.
They said they were forced to close four churches after furious locals launched vicious attacks on worshippers, emboldened by a lack of police support.

8. NYC: Neighbor: ‘About 30 Men’ Regularly Gathered to Pray at Suspected NYC Terrorist’s House
Sayfullo Saipov’s neighbors and acquaintances have been coming forward to paint a portrait of the suspected New York City terrorist.
One Tampa neighbor casually dropped a remarkable detail deep in a Washington Post story on Wednesday: a group of “about 30 men, young and old, gathered at Saipov’s house to pray” on “most weekends.”
No further information is provided about these men or whether they are persons of interest to law enforcement. [...]
The New York Post quotes the manager of a Paterson supermarket where Saipov frequently shopped, who described him as “rude,” “erratic,” and prone to angry outbursts.
'I feel like he was prejudice[d] to the cashiers – whether they were covered or not in a hijab – he would belittle them. He was talking good English, proper, but he would call the cashiers dumb, uneducated – how they didn’t know how to scan the items,' the manager said, adding the detail that Saipov often tried to underpay for 12-packs of Canada Dry ginger ale.
9. Ex-Guantanamo captive suing Canadian government for $50 million
An Algerian man is set to sue the federal government for the abuses he says he suffered at the hands of American security forces after he left Canada 15 years ago.
The unproven allegations by Djamel Ameziane, who was never charged or prosecuted, raise further questions about Canada's complicity in the abuse of detainees at Guantanamo Bay – a topic his lawyer said demands a full-scale public inquiry.
'My current situation is really bad, I am struggling to survive,' Ameziane, 50, said from near Algiers. 'I was repatriated from Guantanamo and left like almost homeless. I couldn't find a job because of the Guantanamo stigma and my age, so a settlement would be very helpful to me to get my life back together.'
In a draft statement of claim obtained by The Canadian Press, Ameziane seeks damages of $50-million on the grounds that Canada's security services co-operated with their U.S. counterparts even though they knew the Americans were abusing him.
"The Crown's conduct constituted acquiescence and tacit consent to the torture inflicted upon the plaintiff," the lawsuit alleges.
