23 killed when car hits party-goers in Mozambique
By AP | News24.com | March 26, 2018


Mozambican media say 23 people were killed when a vehicle veered into a crowd attending a party in the capital of the southern African nation.

Radio Mocambique says the vehicle was traveling at high speed when it hit the crowd early Sunday in Maputo. The radio station describes it as an accident.

A senior police official Paulo Langa says the driver of the vehicle ignored a police order to stop just before hitting the party-goers beside a pedestrian bridge on a main road.

Radio Mocambique quotes Langa as saying the driver died.

An investigation is underway.

Man accused in San Francisco terror plot sentenced to 15 years
By ABC7.com | August 6, 2018


SAN FRANCISCO -- A man who told undercover agents that he wanted to carry out a Christmas Day bombing and shooting attack at a popular San Francisco tourist attraction has been handed a 15-year sentence after pleading guilty in a federal case.

Everitt Aaron Jameson pleaded guilty in June to attempting to aid a terrorist organization under a plea deal with federal prosecutors.

Prosecutors say Jameson, a former tow-truck driver from Modesto, California, told the undercover federal agents that he planned to use pipe bombs to channel victims into part of Pier 39 so he could shoot them.

'Long live the caliphate': Police raid suburban home as it emerges 'terrorist knifeman shouted ISIS slogan as he stabbed three in New Year rampage' at Manchester station before hero cops tackled him

• Man wielding kitchen knife and shouting 'Allahu Akbar' attacks people at station
• A man and woman in their 50s and a police officer were injured around 9pm
• Attacker was pepper-sprayed and Tasered, then pinned down and arrested
• Anti-terror officers are investigating and police are treating incident as terrorism
• They have raided the suspect's home and two victims remain 'seriously injured'

By George Martin, Richard Spillett | MailOnline | Updated: 14:44 EST, 1 January 2019


A knife attack which saw two rail passengers and a policeman stabbed by a man shouting 'Allahu Akbar' is being treated as terrorism, Manchester police have said.

Anti-terror officers raided the 25-year-old suspect's home in the Cheetham Hill area of the city today as they confirmed two of the victims will be in hospital 'for some time'.

Neighbours of the property raided say they believe it is home to a Somali couple and four of their five children, who all moved to the UK from the Netherlands around 12 years ago.

Footage of the aftermath of the 'frenzied' attack at Manchester's Victoria Station last night shows a man being pinned down by five police officers, with blood stains on the pavement.
[...]
The station where the attack unfolded is next to Manchester Arena, where suicide bomber Salman Abedi killed 22 people on May 22. The area was reopened after a cordon was lifted this morning.
