Tunisia Islamist Tourist Massacre: Sousse killer Rezgui trained in Libya


Seifeddine Rezgui, the Tunisian Islamist mass-murderer who killed 38 innocent people at the beach resort of Sousse, is thought to have been trained in Libya, security sources say.

A senior official at the Tunisian interior ministry told the Associated Press that Rezgui had been in Libya in January, the same time as two men who attacked a Tunisian museum in March.

"The attacker trained in Libya with weapons at the same period as the Bardo [museum] attackers," Rafik Chelli from the interior ministry told AP.

Mr Rafik Chelli said further that Rezgui had travelled to the Libyan town of Sabratha at the same time as the Bardo attackers. "He crossed the borders secretly," Mr Rafik Chielli told AP.

IS has a significant presence in Libya, Tunisia's eastern neighbour, and is thought to control the major towns of Derna and Sirte.


The Tunisian authorities have released photos of two suspects, Bin Abdallah and Rafkhe Talari - friends of Rezgui that the police have yet to locate.


The media reports that Rezgui, 23, was radicalised while studying engineering....But fact remains that no one cares about what or when the man became a monster. Fact is he killed in the name of a religion that he was thought this way.

The Tunisian authorities have already arrested several suspected accomplices.

The Islamic State group (IS) has claimed the attack as its own. IS also said it was behind the Bardo museum attack in Tunis that left 22 people dead.

At last but not least
Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi has admitted that the security services were not prepared for an attack of this kind.  He said extra security had been put in place at other locations during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, but nobody had expected beaches to be a target. 

SDR would like to add the following: If you need to travel for holiday, then please think twice if you wish to travel to any Islamic nation. Fact is that the chances of becomming attacked has in the last ten years proven that its generally unsafe. It doesn't pay to take risks be it Turkey, Egypt or Bali Saudi Arabia or any other nation like them your safety is not as good as in Reykjavik Iceland or even Cuba.












Russia: Howdy neighbour - Now would be a good time to worry seriously




The Russian chief prosecutor's office is to examine whether the Soviet Union acted legally when it recognised the Baltic states' independence in 1991.

The investigation was described as an "absurd provocation" by Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius.

Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania were occupied by Soviet communist forces in 1940. The USSR broke up in 1991.

Last week Russia's chief prosecutor declared illegal the transfer of Crimea from Russia to Ukraine in 1954.  At the time Russia and Ukraine were republics of the USSR, under communist leader Nikita Khrushchev.  Russia's annexation of Crimea in March 2014 was condemned internationally. 
Ethnic Russians there voted to rejoin Russia, in a highly controversial referendum. There are large ethnic Russian minorities in Estonia and Latvia, while Lithuania has a smaller ethnic Russian minority. A source at the prosecutor's office, quoted by Russia's Interfax news agency, said the investigation into the Baltic states' independence followed a request from two parliamentary deputies.  
In their letter, MPs Yevgeny Fyodorov and Anton Romanov, of President Vladimir Putin's United Russia party, said the 1991 decision to recognise Baltic independence had been taken "by an unconstitutional body".



The source added that there would not be "legal consequences" if the 1991 recognition of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania was deemed to be illegal.

The three Baltic states joined the EU and Nato in 2004. In recent years Russia has viewed that as a hostile challenge to its security interests. 

Russian-Baltic tensions have been rising since the Crimea annexation and the outbreak of fighting in eastern Ukraine in April 2014. Heavily armed pro-Russian separatists there are clashing daily with Ukrainian government troops.

Nato has stepped up its presence in the Baltic states, responding to massive Russian military exercises, including heightened Russian air force activity in the Baltic.
Reacting to the Russian prosecutor's move, Lithuania's foreign minister called it "a provocation to say the least" and "legally, morally and politically absurd".

SDR; Absurd to some... but many millions of Russians might not see it this way.
Question remains as before. If you  encounter a big Bear ....










Big media wrong reporting: Denmark does not plan to introduce permanent border controls


Majority of the big media has wrongly reported that Denmark is to introduce border controls as seen here below ....

The Gaza flotilla is nothing but a media stunt



The Israeli Navy intercepted a vessel attempting to break Israel’s legal blockade on Gaza. All humanitarian aid to Gaza must enter via Israel in order to prevent the smuggling of arms to Hamas and other terrorist organizations. This sort of disregard of human aid is abused constantly by Hamas and therefore Israel insists on aid via land or a Israeli port. Aiding is one thing but abusing the name of aid and what it stands for is shameful!

The Israeli Navy successfully intercepted a Swedish-registered vessel illegally headed towards Gaza early Monday morning. 
The Swedish vessel, the Marianne of Gothenberg, was stopped about 100 nautical miles from shore after repeatedly ignoring orders by the Israeli Navy to change course. 
According to a statement by the IDF, “Following their refusal to obey orders, The Israeli security visited and searched the vessel in international waters in order to prevent the intended breach of the maritime blockade of the Gaza Strip. The Israeli navy reported that the process was uneventful” and in other words peaceful.
The three other ships participating in the flotilla turned back to their ports of origin.

Question: Did the ships really just leave all the people in need on the way without help on their way to Gaza just to get some media attention ?  Imagine the Swedish ship passing all the flood of migrants to EU but not giving to them anything ...
The ship even stopped in Palermo and gave nothing! 

What we see here takes the word "help" out of the equation, and replaces it with propaganda.


The Marianne was transporting 18 passengers, including former Islamist President of Tunisia Moncef Marzouki and Israeli parliamentarian Basel Ghattas. The ship was then escorted to the Port of Ashdod, from where the foreign passengers are being deported. The flotilla organizers have not explained why the three other vessels abandoned their course instead of continuing to Gaza.

The Prime Minister’s Office provided a copy of a letter distributed to the passengers of the Marianne, in which Netanyahu quipped:
“Welcome to Israel. You seem to have gotten lost. Perhaps you meant to sail to a place not far from here – Syria, where Assad’s army is slaughtering its people every day, and is supported by the murderous Iranian regime.”
On a more serious note, he continued: “Here in Israel we face a reality in which terrorist organizations like Hamas try to kill innocent civilians. We defend our citizens against these attempts in accordance with international law.”

“Despite this,” he added, “Israel transports goods and humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip – up to 800 trucks a day. In the past year we enabled the entry of over 1.6 million tons of products, an average of one ton per person in the Gaza Strip. By the way, these supplies are equivalent to 500,000 boats like the one you came in on today….

“We will not allow the terrorist organizations to transfer weapons into the Gaza Strip by sea. Only one year ago, we thwarted an attempt to smuggle hundreds of weapons into the Gaza Strip by ship. These weapons were meant to target innocent Israeli civilians.”



Despite the fact that the UN had ruled that Israel’s and Egypt’s joint blockade on Gaza are legal under international law, Israel faces periodic attempts by self-styled human rights activists to break through the blockade.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement, saying amongst many matters
that: This flotilla is nothing but a demonstration of hypocrisy and lies that is only assisting the Hamas terrorist organization and ignores all of the horrors in our region. 
“We are not prepared to accept the entry of war material to the terrorist organisations in Gaza as has been done by sea in the past,” the premier asserted. 
“Just last year we foiled an attempt to smuggle by sea hundreds of weapons that were destined 

“There is no siege on Gaza,” Netanyahu stated. 
Israel assists in hundreds of humanitarian projects, through international organisations, including the building of clinics and hospitals.


Fact for all and everyone to know vastly ignored by the western media:
Israeli Aid to Gaza Equals 500,000 Boatloads!

Happy Ramadan - Four Israelis Wounded in Palestinian Terror Attack



In a growing wave of Ramadan-related violence, four young Israelis were wounded in a Palestinian terror attack Monday. One victim is fighting for his life.


Four Israelis in their 20s were wounded Monday night, one of them critically, when Palestinian terrorists opened fire on the car they were driving on a road in the Binyamin region near the communities of Shiloh and Shvut Rachel in Samaria.

The four were driving back from a basketball game when the attack occurred. One of the passengers managed to exit the car and return fire with a handgun he was carrying.

The four, suffering from bullet wounds to their upper and lower bodies, were evacuated to hospitals in Jerusalem.
The most severely wounded victim, Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld, sustained bullet wounds to his lower back. He was operated on overnight and his life is still in danger. The other three sustained light and moderate wounds.

Rosenfeld’s older brother was killed by a terrorist in 2002 while hiking. Security forces launched a manhunt for the assailants. Investigators at the scene of the attack have yet to discern if the terrorists ambushed the four or whether it was a drive-by attack.

This most recent act of terror is among a rapidly growing list of attacks executed by Palestinian Arabs during the Muslim month of Ramadan. 

In total, Palestinians have carried out six terror attacks over the course of 11 days.

Misoun Mussa, a female Arab terrorist, stabbed and critically wounded a female IDF Border Police officer Monday morning at a checkpoint near Bethlehem. The terrorist was apprehended by the IDF and turned over to the Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency).

On Friday, a Palestinian terrorist was killed in the Jordan Valley when he opened fire on IDF soldiers at a checkpoint.

Last Sunday, a Palestinian terrorist stabbed and critically wounded an Israeli border policeman near the Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. The policeman, who sustained stab wounds to his neck, managed to shoot the terrorist.

This followed an attack the previous Friday in which a Palestinian terrorist shot two Israelis, murdering 25-year-old Danny Gonen and wounding another.

These attacks occurred after Israel lifted security restrictions on Palestinians from Judea and Samaria and Gaza as a goodwill gesture for the month of Ramadan.


Reality for the media that they comfortably ignore is that PA has not condemned any of the terror attacks!

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, meeting on Tuesday with Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentilloni, said at the start of their session:  “I would like to send my best wishes for a rapid and full recovery to the Israeli citizens who were wounded last night in the terrorist attack near Shilo and to the soldier who was stabbed near Rachel’s Tomb. 

Attempts to attack us do not halt even for a moment. 

The ISA and IDF have foiled dozens of terrorist attacks since the start of the year and over 200 since the start of 2014. 

We are determined to take strong action and deal with the terrorists to the fullest extent of the law.  The fact that up until now, the Palestinian Authority has not condemned these attacks needs to bother not only us, but also the international community as a whole. 

Those who do not take an unequivocal stand against terrorism cannot wash their hands.”

US State Department Press Releas: Terrorist Attack in Egypt





Press Statement
John Kirby
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
June 29, 2015




The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the terrorist attack, which killed the Egyptian Public Prosecutor Hisham Barakat. We extend our deepest condolences to the Egyptian Government and to the families and friends of those who lost their lives. We also wish a speedy recovery to those who suffered injuries. The United States stands firmly with the Egyptian government in its efforts to confront terrorism.












US - Continuing the Global Dialogue To Counter Violent Extremism and Recruitment



Approximately 200 representatives of governments, civil society, and the private sector from the Asia Pacific, Canada, the United States, and Europe gathered last week in Sydney, Australia for a regional Summit on countering violent extremism. The Summit, hosted by the Australian Government, was the third in a series of events around the globe following up on the February 2015 White House Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Summit and in preparation for a leaders-level CVE meeting at UNGA in September 2015. I was honored to join my colleagues Rashad Hussain, Special Envoy and Coordinator for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications who led our delegation, and David Gersten, the Department of Homeland Security’s CVE Coordinator in participating in these discussions.
Building on many of the core themes of the White House Summit, participants looked for ways to understand and combat terrorist propaganda that contributes to extremist recruitment, to strengthen the role of women and families in combatting violent extremism, to forge effective partnerships among government, the private sector and civil society, to evaluate effective law enforcement approaches to countering radicalization, and to discuss how to build resilient communities by addressing social, political, and economic grievances. These topics are of specific interest to our Australian hosts who have faced terrorist attacks in recent months and who face a significant foreign fighter challenge.
Many noted that the vast majority of citizens in the Asia Pacific region ignore the propaganda and it is the one percent -- or less -- that is susceptible to its appeal. Governments, civil society, and communities themselves must work to help make these messages unattractive. Many participants from the tech industry and civil society also noted the power of social media platforms for good, and that these networks should be harnessed to spread credible messages – issues Rashad Hussain also discussed in his address to the group.
Our Australian hosts put these thoughts into action by also convening a Civil Society Capacity Building Workshop alongside the Summit. Three groups of civil society leaders spent their day focused on using social media to develop effective CVE communication campaigns; developing a national CVE strategy; and implementing successful community-led interventions.
Participants at the Summit also observed the “CVE HackAbout,” an intense three-day race against the clock in which teams competed to “hack” a solution to the CVE challenge. Co-hosted by the Australian Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Government, the CVE HackAbout brought together Australian Muslim talent, designers, coders, youth leaders, industry, and others to develop on-line tools and public campaigns that simultaneously combat terrorist propaganda and anti-Muslim sentiment. The teams pitched their ideas at the Civil Society Capacity Building Workshop to a live audience, an online audience, and a panel of judges that included a senior executive from Google, a television personality, and a managing director from a private equity firm. The winning idea was called “Pentor,” a smart phone app that provides real-time interactive mentorship for youth. Pentor will receive seed funding and incubation at Affinis Labs, a start-up incubator that specializes in supporting businesses that can have a positive social impact....

SDR asks what use is there with dialogs when the definition fiend and enemy has not been clearly defined? And the second question would be if there is not international organ except UN to react then we certainly are at the end of times as UN does not react on anything islamist. just like the recent weekend of terror. We art SDR question the ongoing politically correct hiding the identity of most 99% of all the worlds terror that just increases the more anonymity it get. Christianity has many shapes and so does Jewishm however non of the two have had wars fought out since the days of Martin Luther. Its time that the one religion now enjoying anonymity would have to recognise the impact its violence has on the entire world! Please continue reading the original story on the link above.

Really? U.S. Troops Face Eating, Drinking Restrictions During Ramadan

As reported by - the weekly Standard




A top commander in southwest Asia reminded U.S military personnel stationed in Muslim countries in the Middle East of the restrictions placed on them during Ramadan. According to a report by the U.S. Air Forces Central Command Public Affairs, Brig. Gen. John Quintas, 380th Air Expeditionary Wing commander in Southwest Asia, said that the U.S. is “committed to the concepts of tolerance, freedom and diversity.” 
But he added that soldiers should “become more informed and appreciative of the traditions and history of the people in this region of the world… [R]emember we are guests here and that the host nation is our shoulder-to-shoulder, brothers and sisters in arms, risking their lives for our common cause to defeat terrorism.”

During the 30-day religious celebration of Ramadan, even non-Muslims are expected to obey local laws regarding eating, drinking, and using tobacco in public. Violators can be fined up to $685 or receive two months in jail. 

A spokesperson for United States Central Command [CENTCOM] said that “we are not aware of any specific instances of anyone being arrested” for such violations.

\For [sic] military personnel outside of U.S.-controlled areas, the only exceptions for the rules are for those “performing strenuous labor.” Such personnel are “authorized to drink and consume as much food as they need to maintain proper hydration and energy.” It is unclear what constitutes “strenuous labor” or whether additional exceptions might be made during a heatwave affecting some areas of the region that has taken hundreds of lives.
When asked if the restrictions were new or simply a continuation of past policy, a CENTCOM spokesperson replied:

There has been no change in policy… [W]hile the US does not have a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) with the UAE, it is common practice to ensure all Soldiers, Sailors, Airman, and Marines deployed to Muslim countries are culturally aware that during the month of Ramadan, practicing Muslims do not consume anything from sunrise to sunset as a pillar of their faith. Commanders throughout the AOR create policies to ensure their subordinates respect the laws and culture of our hosts at all times.





SDR thinks that respecting others religions is common curtesy.
If forcing Islamic Ramadan rules on US troops when on their own base is fine ? Then why not forcing Christian Christmas rules on Muslims in the West correct?

Are we not all equal ?

US Department of State press statement on Terrorist Attacks in France, Kuwait, Somalia, and Tunisia




Press Statement
John Kirby
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC

June 26, 2015



The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms today’s horrifying terrorist attacks in France, Kuwait, Somalia, and Tunisia, where dozens of innocent civilians and, in the case of Somalia, Burundian peacekeepers, were killed and injured. We express our deepest sympathy to the victims’ families and our heartfelt wishes for the recovery of those injured. The United States grieves with the people and governments of Burundi, France, Kuwait, Somalia, Tunisia, and other nations affected by these vicious attacks and stands with them in solidarity as they reject terrorism, protect their communities, restore peace and security, and persevere through these tragedies. We will continue to work with all of our allies and partners to address the shared threat of terrorism and violent extremism and to degrade and destroy the ability of these terrorist groups to carry out their callous attacks on innocent people.










Finland: Prime Minister Sipilä condemns attacks in Tunisia and France



In an official release Friday afternoon, Finland new  and more effective Prime Minister Sipilä stated that Finland condemns terrorism in all its forms. This is something that the old Finnish government hardly ever did!

SDR thinks that 99% of Finns are utterly happy to finally see a Finnish PM who engages in the victims and not just feeling pity about the Islamist killers.
Former super-glued Minister of all sort Mr Tuomioja was known to be anti Israel and even accepted a honorary doctor by a Palestinian University.

Finnish PM Sipilä however is a fresh wind in western sails with the comment
"The events have shocked deeply. 
Killing is never justified. 
This is a huge human tragedy," Sipilä stated.

Prime Minister Sipilä has offered his condolences on behalf of the Government of Finland to French President François Hollande and will express his condolences to Habib Essid, the Prime Minister of Tunisia.

So far no Finns have been reported as victims .

The Killings world wide in the name of Islam in the last 24 hours should be too much for the western leaders.....


...But instead of taking action they cowardly send statements and walk hand in hand  like they did in France while it accomplishes nothing.

The constant Killing of  Yazidi and Christian Children does not wake them up 
even if the amounts are growing day by day.

If 1 or 2 Palestinians children die unfortunately by a bomb however then the entire west and Islamic world talks about boycott and more ..
Forgotten fact is:
Israeli bombs have not killed any more children than US drones.

To us here at SDR, kid are kids and women are women if killed anywhere its sad ! The only thing worse than the personally killing toddlers and children by ISIS extremists is the Western media and orders indifference to the close up sadism without regrets that instead of being condemned is being tolerated!

Here below is that last 24 hours in the name of all sort of Islam 
Killing indiscriminately other Muslim fractions also called infidels Christians Kurds Yazidi's and more......

Too many terror attacks been carried out within the space of 24 hours in France, Kuwait and Tunisia Kobane and Somalia....

Many of the incidents, in which scores of people were killed, took place around the time of Friday prayers - typically the most crowded of the week - during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.




Lyon, France: approx 10:00 local time (08:00 GMT)

The first attack took place in France at a gas factory in south eastern France.
Explosions rocked the US-owned facility in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, near Lyon, at about 10:00 local time (08:00 GMT) on Friday.
A delivery vehicle rammed into the factory entrance, where it hit gas canisters, triggering an explosion and injuring two people.
One of the men from the vehicle was tackled by a firefighter and held at the scene, while a decapitated body with an "inscription" written on it was found nearby.
A head was later found on railings at the site, along with flags featuring Arabic writing.

Suspect 'known'

The suspect was later named as Yassin Sali, a 35-year-old delivery driver from nearby Saint-Priest.
The dead man is thought to be the suspect's manager, but it is not clear when or where he was killed.
The suspect may have killed his boss before driving to the factory, where he put the head on the fence and left the body in the grounds before driving further into site in the hope of causing an explosion.
Sali, who is married with three children, is said to have been known to the intelligence services.
His wife, who was later taken into custody by police, told Europe 1 radio that he left to go to work as normal at 07:00 - but didn't return as expected.
French President Francois Hollande said: "The intent was without doubt to cause an explosion. It was a terrorist attack."

Air Products, the owner of the factory where the attack took place, is a US chemical company based in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Founded in 1940, it has 20,000 employees and operates in more than 50 countries. Its current chairman and chief executive is Iranian-born Seifi Ghasemi.






Kuwait mosque attack:  (approx 09:00 GMT)

The second attack took place on a Shia mosque in the Kuwaiti capital about an hour after the incident in France.
At least 25 people were killed and dozens more wounded in the suicide bomb blast.
The explosion took place around the time of Friday prayers at the Imam Sadiq Mosque in al-Sawaber, a busy area to the east of Kuwait City.
A Kuwaiti MP, who saw the attacker, told Reuters news agency that the mosque was packed with 2,000 people when there was a loud explosion.

An Islamic State-affiliated group called Najd Province claimed it was behind the attack. The group has carried out similar attacks in neighbouring Saudi Arabia and Yemen recently.
Sunni-ruled Kuwait has a large Shia minority, which IS considers to be heretical.






Tunisia beach attack:  (approx 11:00 GMT)

The third attack took place close to the Hotel Imperial Marhaba in the popular tourist resort of Port El Kantaoui, to the north of Sousse, Tunisia.
At approximately 12:00 local time (11:00 GMT) at least one gunman fired on tourists on the beach, killing at least 28 people and forcing holidaymakers to flee.
Those killed include British, German, Tunisian and Belgian nationals, the country's health ministry said. Thirty-six others have been wounded.

Several hotels lead directly onto this stretch of the beach, among them the RUI Hotel Imperial Marhaba.
British holidaymaker Steve Johnson told the BBC: "We were just laying on the beach as usual and we heard what we thought at first was fireworks. But it was soon pretty obvious that it wasn't fireworks, that it was firearms that were being discharged and people screaming and starting to run. Me and my friend we just said: 'You know, that's guns, let's go'."

Senior Tunisian security official Rafik Chelli told a local radio station that a gunman had launched the attack by hiding his gun in a beach parasol.
Mr Chelli said the attacker was a Tunisian student and was not previously known to the security services.
"He entered by the beach, dressed like someone who was going to swim, and he had a beach umbrella with his gun in it. Then when he came to the beach he used his weapon," Mr Chelli said.



And there is more violence ....





Islamic State 'kills 120 civilians' in Kobane

Islamic State (IS) militants have killed more than 120 civilians since launching a fresh attack on the Syrian border town of Kobane, activists say.

IS "fired at everything that moved" after entering on Thursday, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
A separate IS attack on the north-eastern city of Hassakeh has displaced 60,000 people, the UN says.
Kobane became a symbol of Kurdish resistance in January after an IS siege lasting several months was repelled.
IS launched an apparent two-pronged offensive on Thursday after Kurdish fighters from the Popular Protection Units (YPG) cut off one of the militants' major supply routes near Raqqa.
Raqqa is the de facto capital of the IS "caliphate", whose creation IS announced a year ago after it captured large swathes of northern and western Iraq and parts of Syria.

'Women and children'
"According to medical sources and Kobane residents, 120 civilians were executed by IS in their homes or killed by the group's rockets or snipers," said Rami Abdel Rahman, who heads the UK-based Observatory.
He said women and children were among the bodies found inside houses and on the streets of the town, which is close to the border with Turkey.

He described it as one of the biggest massacres by the group in the country since its offensive began last summer.
The militants took the town by surprise when they launched their attack on Thursday, five months after IS was removed by Kurdish fighters backed by US-led coalition strikes.
The attack at dawn on Thursday began when militants detonated a car bomb, followed by two more bombings.

Reports said some of the militants may have hidden themselves among returning refugees and disguised themselves by wearing Kurdish militia uniforms.

In a nearby village, IS reportedly shot dead at least 20 civilians, including women and children.

And UN and the rest of the West whistle dixie….

SDR want to shout it out: Women and children and its NOT Israel but Muslims who do this! Where is the press and all the anger ? 
Where is the pity for the ongoing daily killings of kids and even toddlers
by IS?



And there is more violence ....




Somalia attack: Al-Shabab 'kills 30' at AU military base

At least 30 people have been killed after gunmen attacked an African Union military base in southern Somalia, witnesses say.
A suicide car bomber drove into the main gates of the base in Leego, along the main road connecting the capital, Mogadishu and the city of Baidoa.
The militant Islamist group al-Shabab says its fighters have taken control of the base but this is not confirmed.
Al-Shabab is battling Somalia's government for control of the country.
The base is manned by Burundian soldiers from the African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom), which has more than 20,000 troops in the country.
Amisom confirmed on its Twitter account that an attack was ongoing, but has not given any details on casualtie

Leego residents have seen militants burning vehicles, carrying off weapons and removing the bodies of their fighters killed in the attack, reports Mohamed Moalimu from Mogadishu.

The governor of Lower Shabelle province told the mediathat militants had conducted at least three separate attacks in his region but that most had been repelled.
Al-Shabab has vowed to intensify attacks during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
On Wednesday, the first day of Ramadan, the United Arab Emirates ambassador survived a suicide attack on his convoy in Mogadishu.











Tunisian Islamist Attack: Kills 28 people, mostly foreigners



At least 28 people, mostly foreigners, have been killed and 36 injured in an attack on a beach in the Tunisian resort town of Sousse, according to the interior ministry.



Officials say one gunman has been shot dead and another is being pursued.
Interior Ministry officials said Tunisians, Britons, Germans and Belgians are among the dead.
In March militants killed 22 people, mainly foreign tourists, in an attack on a museum in the capital Tunis.
Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi has gone to Sousse's Sahloul hospital to visit the injured.
Security officials said one attacker, who had posed as a swimmer but was carrying a rifle under a parasol, was shot dead in an exchange of fire with police.
Local media reported that the second attacker had been arrested, but this has not been confirmed. A photo purporting to show the body of the first attacker is circulating on social media.

A British man on holiday told the media that he heard the attack on a neighbouring hotel.
From his room, he saw a man with a pistol but did not know whether this was an attacker or a member of the security forces.
The Hotel Imperial Marhaba was named as one of the hotels close to the attack.

Briton Glenn Leathley told the media his daughter had been at the scene and rang him to say "there's gunfire on the beach".
Another British holidaymaker, Steve Johnson, told the media: "We were just laying on the beach as usual and... we heard what we thought at first was fireworks.
"But it was soon pretty obvious... that it was firearms that were being discharged and people screaming and starting to run."
One image circulating on social media appeared to show a man lying face down in the sand with what looks like blood around his head.
The Islamic State militant group had called on its followers to increase attacks during the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan, but no-one has yet said they were behind this attack.

The Belgian Jetairfly airline has announced it is cancelling all flights to Tunisia because of the attack.
A spokeswoman for the Thomson and First Choice tour operators said: "We are working closely with our teams in Tunisia and the relevant authorities to determine exactly what has happened and provide assistance to those affected."



Tunisia has seen militant Islamists gain strength since the overthrow of long-serving ruler Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in a popular uprising in 2011.
Democratic elections after Ben Ali's removal saw the moderate Islamist Ennahda party take power before the secularist Nidaa Tounes government won a parliamentary poll in October.

However, neither party has been able effectively to combat Islamist violence made worse by a raging conflict in neighbouring Libya and by Tunisian fighters returning home after going to join Islamist campaigns in Iraq and Syria.
