Taliban use 'honey trap' boys to kill Afghan police

Source: Times of India

TARIN KOT: The Taliban are using young boys as sex slaves to mount crippling insider attacks on police in southern Afghanistan, exploiting the pervasive practice of "bacha bazi" — paedophilic boy play — to infiltrate security ranks, multiple officials and survivors of such assaults said.

Even as ISIS attacks and kills men for being gay - the terrorist group says homosexuality is unIslamic - the ancient custom of "bacha bazi" is still practiced across Afghanistan. Nowhere does it seem as entrenched as in the province of Uruzgan, where "bacha bereesh" — or boys without beards — widely become objects of lustful attraction for powerful police commanders.

The Taliban over nearly two years have used them to mount a wave of Trojan Horse attacks — at least six between January and April alone — that have killed hundreds of policemen, according to security and judicial officials in the province.

"The Taliban are sending boys — beautiful boys, handsome boys — to penetrate checkpoints and kill, drug and poison policemen," said Ghulam Sakhi Rogh Lewanai, who was Uruzgan's police chief until he was removed in a security reshuffle in April amid worsening violence.

Report: Belgian Police Receive Warning Of ISIS Cell Headed To Europe

Source: Huffington Post

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgian police have received an anti-terror alert warning that a group of Islamic State fighters recently left Syria en route for Europe planning attacks in Belgium and France, a Belgian security source said on Wednesday.

The Belgian crisis center in charge of coordinating security responses said an alert had been circulated to all police forces in the country but there were no immediate plans to raise the security level to the maximum that would indicate an imminent threat of an attack.

A source at France’s Interior Ministry said Belgian authorities had transmitted a note to their French counterparts, who were currently reviewing the information in the alert. “We know the threat is very high,” the source said. “We’re reviewing all the elements (in the alert).”

Orlando Shooter’s Wife Reportedly Knew Of His Plans For Attack

Source: Huffington Post

The wife of Orlando gunman Omar Mateen said she knew her husband was planning an attack, multiple outlets reported Tuesday, citing anonymous law enforcement officials. She may now face charges.

Noor Salman Mateen, the gunman’s second wife, told the FBI that she was aware of his plan for a mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, but didn’t notify authorities, according to local TV station WFTV. She said that she tried to discourage her husband from carrying out the attack, NBC News reported.

Authorities are considering criminal charges against Noor Mateen, according to ABC News.

Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured another 53 at the nightclub early Sunday morning. He died in a shootout with police.

Trump is in way over his head

He really doesn't have the intellect or stamina for the job. I think he knows it too. He's looking and sounding awful.

Hillary's response to the Orlando murder spree fills me with more confidence

that is the right person to be President. She understands the gravity of the situation, isn't doing anything in a kneejerk style, and she wants to improve the situation and stop future such events.

She's the right person president.

Question: When an imam publicly calls for the murder of homosexual people because it is against

the religion, is there a backlash, demonstration, rebuke, boycott in response? (like there would be if someone said a joke about the religion)?

Apparently, an imam spoke in Orlando weeks before this murderous rampage? I would imagine, if there was a kkk demonstration and a black event was shot up, there might be a connection.

Qatar jails Dutch tourist for three months, fines her $845 after she tells police she was drugged an

Source: National Post

The nightclub was hopping when Laura stepped away from her drink to dance. The 22-year-old Dutch tourist had come to Qatar on vacation with a friend. Now she was partying at one of the few places to drink alcohol in the country: the Crystal Lounge at the W Doha Hotel.

As she danced between a mirrored floor and swirling disco balls, however, Laura suddenly began to feel sick and blacked out, according to her attorney. When she regained consciousness, she was in a stranger’s apartment building. Her clothes were torn.

“Laura realizes from that moment that she was drugged and raped,” Brian Lokollo, her attorney, told the Telegraaf. “She suspects that someone in an unguarded moment threw something into her drink.”

Paris Police Officer Stabbed To Death; ISIS Reportedly Claims Responsibility

Source: Huffington Post

A judicial source said the anti-terrorism unit of the prosecutor’s office had been given responsibility for the investigation because of comments made during lengthy exchanges between the assailant and negotiators. The source gave no further details.

“Source to Amaq agency: Islamic State fighter kills deputy chief of the police station in the city of Les Mureaux and his wife,” Amaq said on its news website.

On 9/11, Omar Mateen’s classmates mourned. Some say he celebrated

Source: Washington Post

At a high school in Florida, students watched the horrors of Sept. 11, 2001, unfold on live TV. When the second hijacked airliner slammed into the World Trade Center’s south tower, the class watched in stunned disbelief. But one student, a classmate recalled, “started jumping up-and-down cheering on the terrorist.”

That was sophomore Omar Mateen, according to one of the accounts from Martin County High School remembering 9/11 and the reaction by the student who, nearly 15 years later, would carry out the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

The recollections of Mateen’s actions could not be independently verified, and the memories could be clouded by the years that have passed. But they appear to offer yet another stitch in the wider tapestry of Mateen’s life and views before Sunday’s rampage, which included his pledge of loyalty to the Islamic State during a call to police during the standoff .

In an interview, Robert Zirkle, then a freshman at the Martin County school, said he saw Mateen excited and making fun of how America was being attacked on 9/11. “He was making plane noises on the bus, acting like he was running into a building,” Zirkle recalled. “I don’t really know if he was doing it because he was being taught some of that stuff at home or just doing it for attention because he didn’t have a lot of friends.”

Islamic State: Orlando shooter soldier 'of the caliphate in America'

Source: USA Today

The Islamic State appeared to claim responsibility for the shooting in Orlando that killed at least 50 people, saying in a radio broadcast Monday that "one of the soldiers of the caliphate in America" carried out the attack at a gay nightclub in Florida.

While American-born Omar Mateen, 29, from Fort Pierce, Fla., pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State in a 911 call shortly before the assault, police say it is not yet known whether he had any direct contact or support from the extremist group. Mateen was born in New York, but was of Afghan descent.

The radio broadcast was published on social media
