Africa Horn
Fog of War: NYT sez US commandos seize al Shabaab leader in Nairobi attack response
[Ynet] A US Navy SEAL team seized a big shot of the al-Shabaab
... the Islamic version of the old Somali warlord...
krazed killer group from a seaside villa in Somalia on Saturday in response to a deadly attack on a Nairobi shopping mall last month, the New York Times
...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...
quoted US officials as saying.

The SEAL team seized the unidentified target in a predawn firefight after approaching the beachfront house in the Somali town of Barawe by sea, the paper reported on its website.
So is this a separate raid, or was it Americans instead of the Brits and Turks the Al Shabaab spokes-turban claimed?
I think this was the raid they were talking about, and that they were taking a wild guess at who the raiders were.
I'm impressed. Using a SEAL team to grab a Shaboob number three? Obama authorized that? Really?
U.S. forces take part in 2 Africa raids targeting alleged terrorists
U.S. military forces were involved in two separate operations in Africa - one of them targeting a member of the group Al-Shabaab that was behind last month's Kenya mall attack, and the other going after an al Qaeda leader tied to bombings of two U.S. embassies.

The Al-Shabaab raid took place in Somalia, where that terrorist group is based, sometime in the past 24 hours, a senior U.S. official said Saturday evening.

The team of U.S. Navy SEALs had to withdraw before it could confirm whether it killed the target because they came under fire, the official said. The SEALs made the "prudent decision" to withdraw rather than engage in further combat, according to the official.

The other mission ended in the capture of Abu Anas al Libi, who is suspected to have played a significant role in the August 7, 1998, bombings of American embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; and Nairobi, Kenya, U.S. officials said.

Shaboobs ‘repel raid' by unidentified foreign troops
MOGADISHU -- Foreign troops from an unidentified country raided a house in Barawe, a coastal town in Lower Shabelle region of southern Somalia, and Al Shabaab militants reportedly repelled the foreign troops, Garowe Online reports.

Local witnesses reported on VOA Somali Service that unidentified foreign troops “came from the coast with boats and helicopters" and raided a house in Barawe around 2am local time Saturday morning. At least one person was killed in the raid, locals reported.

Sheikh Abdulaziz Abu Musab, spokesman for Al Shabaab’s military wing, confirmed the raid and disclosed in a recorded press statement that the militants “repelled a midnight raid by white infidel soldiers”.

Abu Musab said: "We fought back against the white infidel soldiers with bombs and bullets, and they ran back to their boats. One member of Al Shabaab was killed and the white infidel soldiers failed their mission. We found blood and equipment near the coast in the morning,” he added in a recorded press statement posted on militant websites.

Somali government officials have issued no public comment on the raid. Due to Al Shabaab' secrecy, it was not clear who was the target of the raid on the Barawe house. Barawe coastal town is home to Al Shabaab senior leaderhip, although no one knows the whereabouts of the militant group’s chief Ahmed Abdi Godane.

Somali Pirates Jailed by Seychelles Court
[Shabelle] 11 pirates have been convicted in the Seychelles Supreme Court of committing acts of piracy and operating a pirate vessel between 7 -- 11 May 2012. Their sentences ranged from 18 months to 16 years.

The pirates had been apprehended by the Royal Netherlands Navy frigate, HNLMS Van Amstel, on 11 May 2012, after the warship's Lynx helicopter sighted a suspicious fishing dhow towing 2 skiffs, 400 nautical miles off the Somali coast.

When the warship's boarding team approached the dhow, the Dutch Navy crew found 11 suspected pirates of Somali origin and a total of 17 hostages on board.

After taking the suspected pirates to HNLMS Van Amstel, the Dutch boarding team found significant evidence that linked the 11 men to an armed attack on Motor Tanker 'Super Lady' a few days earlier.

The 17 freed hostages, who were Iranian fishermen, were very grateful to the Dutch sailors for rescuing them from the armed pirates.

Uneasy calm returns to Mombasa as leaders condemn deadly violence
[Daily Nation (Kenya)] An uneasy calm returned to Mombasa on Saturday following festivities Friday between protestors and police that left four people dead and at least seven with serious injuries.

Musselmen, Christian and politicians roundly condemned the violence, calling for calm and a speedy resolution of the cold-blooded killing the previous night of a holy man and three others that provoked the violent protests.

Masjid Musa Mosque holy man Sheikh Ibrahim Umar Ismail, popularly known as Rogo or Logo, was killed together with three companions as they returned home late on Thursday evening.

Shebab says British, Turkish special forces attacked Somali base
[Al Ahram] Somalia's Al-Qaeda-linked Shabaab said Saturday British and Turkish special forces staged a nighttime sea and air attack on one of its bases, but Britannia denied any involvement.
Are the Turks capable of operating so far from home? And why would they?
Leaders of the Islamist snuffies in the southern Somali port of Barawe said commandos rappelled from a helicopter and tried to storm a house belonging to a senior Shabaab commander, but the assault failed.

The assault comes two weeks after Shabaab gunnies attacked Kenya's Westgate shopping mall, massacring 67 people in a four-day siege. Six Britons were among the dead.

Abu Anas al-Libi snatched
A man suspected of being a leader of Al Qaeda and having a role in planning the bombings of the United States Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 was seized from the streets of Tripoli on Saturday by a team of armed men, officials familiar with the situation said.

The suspect, born Nazih Abd al Hamid al-Ruqhay and known by his nom de guerre Abu Anas el-Liby, has been high on the list of the United States government's most-wanted fugitives since at least 2000, when a New York court indicted him for his part in planning the embassy attacks. The F.B.I. had offered a bounty of up to $5 million for information leading to his capture.

The officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of attempts to locate Abu Anas, declined to make public further details on his capture.

#1  Seek and ye shall find. Abu Anas al Libi in Libia," Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said in a statement. "He is currently lawfully detained under the law of war in a secure location outside of Libia. Abu Anas al Libi has been indicted in the Southern District of New York in connection with his alleged role in Al Qaeda's conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals and to conduct attacks against U.S. interests worldwide, which included Al Qaeda plots to attack U.S. forces stationed in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Somalia, as well as the U.S. embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya." Multiple senior U.S. officials told Fox News that Libi is being held on a ship at sea. "Libi could be held at sea for a matter of weeks before he is turned over to law enforcement authorities," one senior U.S. official told Fox News.
ABC reported Seal Team 6 went in and did a rendition--something Obummer campaigned against. But they are still bringing him back to criminal courts instead of Gitmo.

#3  Since he will be tried in civilian courts, he will probably walk. Much of the evidence against him is probably based on intel sources that the government won't dare use in open court. Plus, they probably forgot to read him his Miranda rights before capturing him.

#1  This week it was reported that former head of the JCS Hugh Sheltor claimed that the US was behind the destabilization of both Egypt and Bahrain. In the latter case, Saudi Arabia had to save the situation when it sent its troops to Bahrain. Why this report has no legs, especially in the Middle East, is baffling.

Indian army says seven rebels killed in Kashmir
[Dawn] India's army, which says it has been locked in a nearly two-week battle with dozens of suspected Pakistain-backed rebels, said Saturday it killed seven faceless myrmidons in 24 hours in disputed Kashmire.

The military says it has been fighting 30 to 40 rebel infiltrators who crossed the heavily militarised Line of Control (LoC) dividing Kashmire between nuclear-armed rivals India and Pakistain last month.

"Four faceless myrmidons were killed in the Fateh Gali area" of Indian Kashmire on Saturday, Colonel Rajesh Kalia told AFP, adding three other rebel suspects were killed in another gunbattle in nearby Gujardur area the previous day.

Journalists and anti-Qaida fighters killed in Iraq
[Al Ahram] Iraqi officials say attacks across the country have killed five people, including two journalists working in a northern city.

Police say a news hound and cameraman for the private Al-Sharqiya TV channel were shot on Saturday while working on a report in the city of djinn-infested Mosul, about 360 kilometers (220 miles) northwest of Storied Baghdad
...located along the Tigris River, founded in the 8th century, home of the Abbasid Caliphate...
. It was not immediately clear why they were targeted.

Three other people were killed and five were maimed when a roadside kaboom hit a checkpoint manned by Sunni forces of Evil opposed to Al-Qaeda in the town of Youssifiyah, 20 kilometers (12 miles) south of Storied Baghdad, police officials said.

Hospital officials confirmed the casualties. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to journalists.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Girl in Israeli Settlement Shot in Possible Attack
[An Nahar] A nine-year-old Israeli girl from a settlement near the West Bank city of Ramallah was at death's door after being shot late on Saturday, police and emergency services said.

Police front man Micky Rosenfeld told Agence La Belle France Presse the girl, from Psagot east of the Paleostinian political capital of Ramallah, was "shot while playing in the garden outside her house".

"She was shot in the upper part of the body," he said.

Rosenfeld said the girl was taken to a hospital in Jerusalem, and that police were looking at different leads, "including that it was a terrorist attack".

He said residents of Psagot had been ordered to stay inside their homes until further notice.

A front man for Israel's Magen David Adom emergency services said the girl was taken to hospital conscious but at death's door.

Last month an Israeli soldier was rubbed out in the southern West Bank city of Hebron in what the army believes was a Paleostinian sniper attack, although no suspects were later apprehended.
According to Ynet, her condition has stabilized. It adds:
Israeli girl lightly maimed while playing in yard in settlement located north of Ramallah says terrorist was standing at point blank range from her; army suspects infiltration from nearby Paleostinian town

Southeast Asia
Gun battle leaves four terrorists, two policemen dead
Security forces in Narathiwat province killed four terrorists insurgents on Saturday, including Abdul Roheng Da-eso, alias "Black Pele", in a 15-minute gun battle that left two policemen dead. About 50 police and soldiers raided a house after authorities were told by an informant that a group of key terrorists insurgents, including Abdul, were hiding there.

While approaching the house, the troops were spotted by the terrorists insurgents who opened fire, sparking a fierce exchange that lasted about 15 minutes. As the battle raged, Pol Lt Col Atipat Supanwiwat and Pol Sgt Maj Wichit Otthon were gunned down and Pol Sgt Yothin Chantaradet was wounded. The battle ended when seven terror insurgent suspects surrendered and exited the house.

In the house, four suspects were found dead, one of whom was identified as Abdul, who faced more than 10 arrest warrants for violent attacks in Rueso district.

In a separate operation, soldiers nabbed two men suspected of being involved in a bombing that killed four military officers on Oct 2 in Yala province. The two are Dolo Bueraheng and Aha Maso, who are suspected of having a role in a bombing that killed eight soldiers in June.

Meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister Pracha Promnok said Saturday the five demands made by Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) during peace talks were "acceptable overall", however he said the details still needed thorough review. Pol Gen Pracha, in charge of security affairs, said after meeting with 32 advisers that the next round of negotiations had been set for Oct 20 in Kuala Lumpur. He said, "The five demands of the BRN look acceptable overall, but agreement is not 100%."

Army chief Prayuth Chan-och, however, insisted the demands were unacceptable.
