Afghanistan
NDS seize 118 weapons with over 20,000 ammunition rounds in Parwan
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] A large cache of weapons and ammunition was confiscated by the Afghan cops from northern Parwan province of Afghanistan.

The Afghan Intelligence -- National Directorate of Security
...the Afghan national intel agency...
(NDS) said the cache included 118 various types of weapons and 20,200 rounds of ammunition.

A statement by NDS said the cache included 93 pistols, 10 Ak-47 rifles, 9 Ak-74 rifles, 4 Ak-74U, 2 M4 rifles

The statement further added that the cache included 11,200 rounds of pistol ammunition and 9,000 rounds of Ak-47 ammunition.

It was not clear if any suspect was detained in connection to the storage of the weapons and ammunition.

The anti-government armed Lion of Islam groups have not commented regarding the report so far.

Parwan is among the relatively volatile provinces in northern Afghanistan where anti-government armed forces of Evil are actively operating in a number of its remote districts and often carry out insurgency activities.

Various criminal gangs involved in arms smuggle and other criminal activities including murder and kidnappings are also operating in this province which largely contribute to the growing instability of Parwan.

Mother of two killed on adultery charges in Jawzjan
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] A mother of two children has been executed allegedly for having immoral contacts with a man disregarding her husband in northern Jawzjan province.

Officials say the woman was accused and handed over to Taliban by her in-laws.

Shakib, governor of Faizabad district told Pajhwok Afghan News that the woman was bumped off in Mimlik village on Saturday night.

Taliban spokesperson has also confirmed the killing but rejected involvement of his group in the incident.

Mujahid said Taliban had received a complaint from the woman’s husband accusing her for having wrong character but she was not killed by them.

According to Mujahid, the woman was executed by her husband.

However,
some people cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go...
Maghfirat Samimi who heads mission of the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) in Jawzjan has said that the woman was killed by fighters of Mullah Ahmad Shah, a Taliban capo.

Due to the fact that some remote areas in the country are not under full control of government, therefor turban groups, local warlords or strongmen in those villages have established their own desert courts.

They execute people based on their way of justice. Sometimes the accused are not even given a chance to have a say.

53 militants including ISIS loyalists join peace process in east of Afghanistan
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] Scores of anti-government armed murderous Moslems have joined grinding of the peace processor in the restive eastern Nangarhar

province of Afghanistan, local officials said Sunday.

Provincial governor Salim Khan Kunduzi said 53 murderous Moslems including four commanders leading the murderous Moslems surrendered to the Afghan government by renouncing violence.

He said 43 of the murderous Moslems were fighting in Taliban group’s ranks and 10 others were affiliated with the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group.

Welcoming the murderous Moslems decision to join grinding of the peace processor, Kunduzi called on other holy warrior groups to renounce violence and join grinding of the peace processor.

One of the murderous Moslems who joined grinding of the peace processor said he was previously working for the Taliban group and later joined the ISIS ranks but he said he never knew who was leading the ISIS loyalists in Afghanistan.

He said the majority of ISIS loyalists are comprised of foreigners mainly Pak nationals who are busy with training of the murderous Moslems in Afghanistan.

This comes as the loyalists of the ISIS terror group received major setbacks in eastern Nangarhar province during the recent months as a result of the mounting Arclight airstrikes by US forces and ground operations by the Afghan forces.

Meanwhile,
...back at the palazzo, Don Smilzo looked for an avenue of escape. The only window opened a hundred feet above the moat. The nearest of the hired assassins hold a bloody axe.
The window was looking better all the time....

it is believed that the loyalists of the terror group are looking to shift the area of their operations from Nangahar to eastern Kunar province
... which is right down the road from Chitral. Kunar is Haqqani country.....
in a bid to escape the ongoing operations.

Two Arrested in Mali over Ivory Coast Resort Attack
[AnNahar] Two Malians have been tossed in the clink
Book 'im, Mahmoud!
on suspicion of playing a key role in a deadly attack on an Ivory Coast beach resort claimed by an al-Qaeda-linked group, security sources said Sunday.

The two were arrested in northern Mali on Friday and Saturday following indications they "actively participated" in the March 13 assault on three hotels and a beach in Grand-Bassam that left 19 people dead, one of the sources told AFP.

The suspects were named as Midy Ag Sodack Dicko, accused of organizing the logistics for the attack, and Ibrahim Ould Mohammed, said to be the right-hand man of accused criminal mastermind Kounta Dallah, who is still on the lam, the sources said.

The Grand-Bassam rampage, the first of its kind in the Ivory Coast, was claimed by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb which has also carried out similar assaults on tourist hotspots in Mali and Burkina Faso
...The country in west Africa that they put where Upper Volta used to be. Its capital is Oogadooga, or something like that. Its president is currently Blaise Compaoré, who took office in 1987 and will leave office feet first, one way or the other...
Ag Sodack Dicko, who was arrested on Saturday, said the assailants had stayed at his home in Ivory Coast's main city of Abidjan, although he claimed he "didn't know" they were going to carry out the attacks, one of the sources said.

A police source told AFP that Ag Sodack Dicko had played a logistical role in the attacks and had flown to the Malian capital Bamako shortly afterwards.

Armed with grenades and assault rifles, the attackers stormed three hotels in Grand-Bassam, a resort popular with expats that lies 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Abidjan.

It was the latest in a series of high-profile assaults in north and west Africa targeting locals and tourists alike.

Arabia
Five Qaeda suspects in Yemen killed in Saudi-led strikes
Saudi-led coalition warplanes carried out a series of raids in southern Yemen on Sunday targeting Al-Qaeda positions that killed five suspected militants, a Yemeni military official said. The official said the militants were killed in air strikes that targeted buildings in the city of Zinjibar, including an intelligence and special forces headquarters occupied by the militants.

Several people were also wounded and taken to a hospital in the nearby town of Jaar, the official said. An abandoned army weapons factory in Jaar which the militants had taken over was also hit, the official added, but was unable to say if there were any casualties.

Other raids carried out by the Saudi-led coalition struck suspected Al-Qaeda positions in second city Aden at dawn, according to the same official. It was not immediately clear if anyone was killed or injured.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has taken advantage of Yemen's war between Iran-backed rebels and pro-government forces backed by a Saudi-led Arab coalition to expand in the south. AQAP, which has long been entrenched in Yemen, is regarded by Washington as the network's most dangerous branch, and it has carried out deadly attacks on the West in the past.

Last week a US air strike on an AQAP training camp in Hajr, in the southeastern province of Hadramawt, killed 71 fighters, according to provincial officials.

The militants have seized parts of Hadramawt including its provincial capital Mukalla in April last year.

The Saudi-led coalition launched its intervention in Yemen a year ago against the Houthi rebels but it has recently turned its guns on militants in southern Yemen.

Europe
Brussels police break up far-right protests
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Belgian police briefly used water cannon to control several hundred rowdy protesters in central Brussels on Sunday after they ignored an official call for marches to be postponed following Tuesday’s bombings.

Amid fears of further attacks, officials wanted to give police the scope to focus on investigations which have widened to other countries, leading to the arrest of an Algerian in Italia and intelligence cooperation with Germany. Police carried out 13 new raids in Belgium itself.

Hundreds nevertheless gathered at the Bourse to express solidarity with the victims of the suicide kabooms at Brussels airport and on a rush-hour metro train. Thirty one people were killed, including three attackers, and hundreds more injured. ISIS has grabbed credit.

Frenchman suspected in planning terror attack arrested
[CBSNEWS] Dutch police jugged
Drop the rod and step away witcher hands up!
a 32-year-old Frenchie in the port city of Rotterdam on Sunday at the request of French authorities who suspect him of "involvement in planning a terror attack," prosecutors said.

Residents were evacuated from homes near addresses on two streets that were raided Sunday by anti-terror police, who also took three other men into custody.

French officials requested the arrest Friday after the suspect emerged during an investigation, according to a statement from the Dutch national prosecutor's office.

The suspect was allegedly involved in a plot disrupted by police in the Gay Paree region last week, the Gay Paree prosecutor's office said. Another Frenchie, Reda Kriket, was detained Thursday in that plot and remains in jug.

An official with the Gay Paree prosecutor's office said there is no sign of a link at this stage between Kriket's purported plot and a network behind attacks in Brussels and Gay Paree in recent months.

The Gay Paree official and Dutch prosecutors' Spokesman Wim de Bruin declined to give more details about the alleged plot.

The suspect, whose identity was not released, is expected to be extradited to La Belle France soon.

Three other men were detained in Sunday's raids; two with Algerian backgrounds and a third man whose identity could not immediately be established.

De Bruin said the three were held in relation to a Dutch investigation, but he gave no further details.

The raids came with Europe on high alert following last week's deadly suicide kabooms in Brussels.

Belgian riot police clashed Sunday with hundreds of right-wing hooligans at a temporary shrine honoring victims of the Brussels suicide kabooms, as Sherlocks launched fresh anti-terror raids, taking four more people into custody.

Police used water cannon when scuffles broke out in front of the Bourse, which has become a symbolic rallying point for people to pay their respects to those who died in Tuesday's attacks. Black clad men carrying an anti-ISIS banner with an expletive on it trampled parts of the shrine, shouting Nazi slogans. Ten were arrested and two coppers injured.

"We had 340 hooligans from different football clubs who came to Brussels and we knew for sure that they would create some trouble," Police Commissioner Christian De Coninck said. "It was a very difficult police operation because lots of families with kids were here."

Much like in La Belle France after the Gay Paree attacks, public interest in fiery

far-right nationalistic populism has went kaboom! in popularity. Vocativ reports Facebook likes for Vlaams Belang, the right-wing populist party from Flanders, has surged more than 3,000 percent.

Brussels mayor Yvan Mayeur expressed his disgust, with Belgium still in mourning over the suicide kabooms at Brussels airport and subway, which killed at least 31 people and injured some 270.

Federal prosecutors, meanwhile, said Sunday morning's raids were linked a "federal case regarding terrorism" but did not specify whether it had any links to the March 22 attacks.

Algerian nabbed in Italy for alleged link to Belgium network
[WASHINGTONPOST] Police in southern Italia have placed in durance vile
Book 'im, Mahmoud!
an Algerian man wanted by Belgian authorities for alleged involvement in a Belgium-based network which provided false IDs used by people implicated in the Gay Paree and Brussels attacks, Sherlocks said Sunday.

Djamal Eddine Ouali was arrested Saturday in the town of Bellizzi, outside of the port city of Salerno, said Luigi Amato, the head of Salerno police’s anti-terrorism squad. Ouali apparently "didn’t know he was wanted" by Belgian authorities and applied for a residency permit about 10 days ago in Italia, Amato said in a telephone interview.

Ouali, 40, was locked away
Maw! They're comin' to get me, Maw!
while authorities expected extradition procedures to soon begin, the police official said.

Ouali had entered in Italia sometime after late December, Amato said. His wife, also Algerian, is also in Italia.

A statement from police in Salerno noted that authorities’ interest in Ouali was triggered when they noticed he had the same name of man sought by Belgium for alleged involvement in "a criminal network dedicated to false documents on a large scale" that emerged last year in Brussels.

Belgium issued a warrant in January, three months after a raid in the Brussels suburb of Saint-Gilles yielded some thousand digital images used for false documents.

That raid discovered "photos and of some aliases used by the three holy warriors belonging to the group which planned and carried out the attacks in Gay Paree" on Nov. 13, 2015, the Italian police statement said.

The Italian news agency ANSA said the aliases included Soufiane Kayal, the name used by Najim Laachraoui, one of the jacket wallahs in last week’s Brussels airport attack, as well as one used by Mohammed Belkaid, who was killed during the hunt for Salah Abdeslam, as well as an alias, Yassine Baghli, used by Abdeslam, the suspected ringleader of the attacks.

Amato said Oauli declined to answer Sherlocks’ questions. The official stressed he couldn’t elaborate on what links the documents’ falsification had to the suspects in the Gay Paree and Brussels attacks. Italia’s investigation of Oauli’s activities on Italian territory is also continuing.

Taliban suicide bomber kills 65 in 'playground blast' that targeted Christians on Easter
[EXPRESS.CO.UK] Pak police confirmed that a jacket wallah was behind the blast at a public park in the eastern Pak city.

The park was particularly busy on Sunday evening due to the Easter holiday weekend.

Taliban splinter group Jamaat-ul-Ahrar has grabbed credit for the attack and said they specifically targeted Pakistain's Christian minority.

Speaking on behalf of the sick jihadis, Ehsanullah Ehsan
...formerly the front man for the Pak Taliban, now the lips and tongue of the Jamaatul Ahrar splinter group in Mohmand Agency...
said: "The target were Christians.

"We want to send this message to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif
... served two non-consecutive terms as prime minister, heads the Pakistain Moslem League (Nawaz). Noted for his spectacular corruption, the 1998 Pak nuclear test, border war with India, and for being tossed by General Musharraf...
that we have entered Lahore.

"He can do what he wants but he won't be able to stop us. Our suicide bombers will continue these attacks."

Police sources had earlier said the bombing appeared to target "Christian families" celebrating Easter.

Mustansar Feroz, police superintendent for the area, said: "Most of the dead and injured are women and kiddies."

While senior police officer Haider Ashraf said the area was crowded with Christians celebrating Easter.

The blast occurred in the parking area of Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, just outside the exit gate and a few metres away from children's swings.

Eyewitnesses describing seeing body parts strewn across the parking lot once the blast's dust had settled.

Most of the victims were women and kiddies, according to a rescue service front man.

According to doctors at the Jinnah Hospital, many injured are at death's door and fear the corpse count may rise.

Media footage showed children and women crying and screaming and rescue officials, police and bystanders rushing injured people to ambulances.

The terror attack happened at the heart of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's political base of Punjab.

ISIS attack US air base

[ARA News] ERBIL ــ Radical group of the Islamic State (ISIS) launched suicide attacks on the Ayn al-Asad Airbase in western Iraq, clashing with U.S. and Iraqi military forces in the area, Iraqi media sources reported on Saturday.

Local military sources confirmed that around nine ISIS suicide bombers were able to infiltrate into the airbase in western Anbar.

Ayn al-Asad Airbase, a U.S.-Iraqi base, is located in the largely Sunni province of al-Anbar.

The U.S. forces intervened to support the Iraqi troops after hours from ISIS attacks, according to media reports.

“The U.S. special forces were able to repel the attack and killed eight suicide bombers, while an Iraqi lieutenant pilot and two other soldiers were killed in addition to the injury of six other soldiers in the operations,” an official from the Iraqi army told ARA News, speaking on condition of anonymity.

In this regard, Iraqi political activist Jassim Khalaf said that the United States is determined to eliminate the terror group “after becoming a real threat to the global security.”

“Daesh will receive painful blows from the U.S.-led coalition forces in the coming days,” he stressed, using an acronym for ISIS.

Earlier, the hardline group had attacked another U.S. military base north of Mosul and was able to kill an American soldier.

Over the past few weeks, U.S.-led coalition forces conducted several airstrikes on the Iraqi province of Anbar, killing a number of jihadi leaders and other militants from the extremist group, according to Iraqi officials.

The coalition’s airstrikes have recently killed dozens of prominent leaders of the radical group across Syria and Iraq, besides hitting tactical units and oil fields held by ISIS. The group has been suffering an apparent shortage in manpower in the recent weeks.

Southeast Asia
Two Abu Sayyaf militants killed in Basilan
[GMA News] An Abu Sayyaf sub-leader and member were killed in a Friday morning clash in Al-Barka, Basilan that also resulted in five soldiers, two militiamen, and six other terrorists being injured. Major Filemon Tan identified the former sub-leader as Eric Ajibon, allegedly an expert bomb maker who was "responsible in the series of bombings against the government forces and business establishments in Basilan."

The other fatality was identified only as Ayan. His and Ajibon's bodies were recovered from the area of the battle and were turned over to the police. Tan said, "The troops also recovered war materials and personal belongings in the encounter site."

The six Abu Sayyaf militants reported injured in the fighting were carried off by the retreating rebels.

The clash occurred after the military was tipped off by residents of Sitio Luglugi in Barangay Macalang about the presence of around 40 Abu Sayyaf militants in the area. The military deployed elite troops from the 4th Special Forces Battalion, which caught up with the insurgents led by Isnilon Hapilon, a top Abu Sayyaf leader.

Tan said, "Heavy exchange of fires lasted for 30 minutes and sporadic firefight dragged on for three hours."

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Islamic State driven out of Syria's ancient Palmyra city
[REUTERS] Syrian government forces backed by heavy Russian air support drove Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
out of Palmyra on Sunday, inflicting what the army called a mortal blow to gunnies who seized the city last year and dynamited its ancient temples.

The loss of Palmyra represents one of the biggest setbacks for the ultra-hardline Islamist group since it declared a caliphate in 2014 across large parts of Syria and Iraq.

The army general command said that its forces took over the city with support from Russian and Syrian air strikes, opening up the huge expanse of desert leading east to the Islamic State strongholds of Raqqa and Deir al-Zor.

Palmyra would become "a launchpad to expand military operations" against the group in those two provinces, it said, promising to "tighten the noose on the terrorist group and cut supply routes ... ahead of their complete recapture".

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said festivities continued on the eastern edge of Palmyra, around the prison and airport, but the bulk of the Islamic State force had withdrawn and retreated east, leaving the city under Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir Pencilneck al-Assad
Lord of the Baath...
's control.

Later the Observatory said six powerful kabooms were heard in the city triggered by triple boom-mobileings inside the city and its edges by the krazed killer group. Three gunnies with suicide belts also blew themselves up inside the captured city, inflicting unspecified casualties among army forces and allied troops.

Syrian state-run television broadcast from inside the city, showing empty streets and badly damaged buildings.

It quoted a military source saying Syrian and Russian jets were targeting Islamic State fighters as they fled, hitting dozens of vehicles on the roads leading east from the city.

The White House is instead expected to have Vice President Joe Biden meet with Mr. Erdogan.

The official line is "concerns about crackdowns on [internal] dissent and Kurdish insurgents."

More likely it's the WH having concerns about this.
