Top 10: Van driven into office of right-wing Dutch newspaper

1. Dutch Newspaper Office Hit By Flaming Truck in “Deliberate” Attack

A van was driven into the offices of a right-wing Dutch newspaper in Amsterdam Tuesday morning, bursting into flames and causing significant damage in what is being called an attack on the news organisation.

The Dutch police said the strike was a “deliberate action” and revealed a manhunt was underway after a suspect managed to escape the scene.

De Telegraaf, the publication targeting at around 4:00 am on Tuesday morning, described the incident as an “attack” in their coverage.

Security footage of the attack released by the newspaper shows the van driving into the glass wall at speed, but only causing limited damage.

2. Taliban bomb-maker convicted of UK terrorism plot

Khalid Ali was carrying three knives when he was arrested by armed police in April last year.

Only just over a month earlier, a British-born convert to Islam had plowed a car into pedestrians on nearby Westminster Bridge, killing four people, before stabbing a policeman to death in the grounds of parliament.

The Old Bailey court heard Ali, 28, had intended to kill a police officer, a member of the armed forces or even a Member of Parliament, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.

Five days before he was stopped, Ali visited potential targets such as Westminster Bridge, the Houses of Parliament and Whitehall.

His fingerprints matched those found on bomb-making components recovered in Afghanistan in 2012 and held on an FBI database, the CPS said in a statement.

3. MIGRANT CRISIS: Trouble for EU as new council president Austria adopts hardline approach

AFGHANS, Africans and Syrians seeking refuge in the European Union would have to submit asylum applications prior to entering the bloc under strict new proposals put forward by Austria.

The motion would see the bloc move away from its current system, much criticised “frontline” Mediterranean states including Greece and Italy have criticised, who claim it has led to them taking in a “disproportionate” amount of migrants.

This sees migrants submit applications at the first EU country they arrive in.

Austria’s proposals are an indication of the hardline tactics which the country will take on migration once it assumes the EU’s rotating presidency on July 1.

9. Austria: Armed forces carry out migrant security drills at Slovenian border

Austria's security forces carried out a border protection exercise at the border crossing in Spielfeld, Tuesday, across from Sentilj, near the Slovenian city of Maribor.

Several hundred members of the Austrian armed forces and police officers carried out an exercise to stop a large group of refugees, played by actors, from crossing the border.

Austria's new 600-member border squad 'Puma,' expected to be ready in September, is also participating in the exercises.

The Sentil-Spielfeld border crossing already features extensive border protection infrastructure, including border fencing.

The ship that picked up the illegals…………

Returning them to their point of origin is a rescue.

Dropping them in the EU where they can demand food, clothing, shelter and money…….well, that is human trafficking.

Should have sunk the ship and all on board.
