1. Sweden: Four stabbed during “major incident” at hospital; 20 people involved in brawl
My German-language ISIS instructor wants me to use the knife techniques shown in the video – in Germany. He immediately suggests several suitable targets: ‘Go to an old people’s home, that’s very easy.” I ask whether that is permitted, even by ISIS’s radical interpretation of Islam. “Is an old people’s home allowed from an Islamic perspective?” His answer is clear: “Yes, inshallah. Or to go a monastery or a church.’
Former CIA Station Chief Brad Johnson speaks to exactly this tactic, and offers predictions for the future of Canada:
2. “We will slaughter you in your own houses!” ISIS fighter with “British” accent warns of terror attacks
A 'British' ISIS fighter has proclaimed that the terrorist organisation are planning new attacks on the West in a chilling new video which has appeared online.
The short clip shows a young black man speaking directly to the camera, with what sounds like a British accent, warning of terrorist attacks in Italy and Turkey, threatening to 'slaughter' civilians in their own homes.
The video is believed to have been filmed in the Syrian city of Raqqa, Islamic State's self-declared 'capital', during the recent battles between ISIS jihadists and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
3. More Islamic State terror related arrests in Spain
4. Girl arrested in Iran for not wearing her head scarf properly
All through the video, the girl is screaming in Farsi, “Let me go! Leave me alone!”
5. Passenger allowed on Ryanair flight after staff discovered pipe bomb in his luggage
Nadeem Muhammad was still allowed to catch a flight despite carrying a viable pipe bomb hidden inside a pen, Manchester Crown Court heard.
The prosecution alleges the device was brought on board with the intention of detonating it “within the confines of the Boeing 737 aircraft”.
The 43-year-old was stopped at Manchester airport en route to Milan in January while allegedly carrying the bomb, after airport scanners picked up the unusual device, the court was told.
It was allegedly found in Mr Muhammad’s suitcase lining by x-ray machines while he was trying to board a Ryanair flight to Italy.
Despite airport security reportedly finding a suspicious device, Mr Muhammad was released and allowed to catch a later flight on February 5.
Jonathan Sandiford, prosecuting, said further analysis of the device found wires, batteries, tape, pins and a double base smokeless propellant normally found in firearms ammunition attached to a marker pen.
