Eight bodies found after attack on Guinea Ebola education team

Guinea’s Prime Minister Mohamed Saïd Fofana said the team that included local administrators, two medical officers, a preacher and three accompanying journalists, was attacked by a hostile stone-throwing crowd from the village when they tried to inform people about Ebola.

Eight bodies, including those of three journalists, were found after an attack on a team trying to educate locals on the risks of the Ebola virus in a remote area of southeastern Guinea, a government spokesman said on Thursday.

“The eight bodies were found in the village latrine. Three of them had their throats slit,” Damantang Albert Camara told Reuters by telephone in Conakry.

However, Guinea’s Prime Minister Mohamed Saïd Fofana, speaking in a television message that had been recorded earlier, said 7 bodies of 9 missing people had been found.

He said six people have been arrested following the incident, which took place on Tuesday in Wome, a village close to the town of Nzerekore, in Guinea’s southeast, where Ebola was first identified in March.

Mexican Cartel Beheads 3 More Victims In Message To America

The men responsible for the latest executions also belong to the Los Zetas cartel, a group that dates back to the late nineties.

Cartels have started to exhibit bolder actions, after the Obama administration has shown reluctance in securing our borders. Now, the same Mexican cartel that beheaded four women has decided to behead three additional men in the same way. The disturbing video was obtained by The New Observer.

As you may remember, the previous video showed four women, bound and kneeling in front of a group of heavily armed captors. They were surrounded by 13 masked men, who asked them about their associations with a rival gang. When one women responded that her brother was a member, she was executed. Following the confession, members of the cartel stepped forward and slit the women’s throats.

The men responsible for the latest executions also belong to the Los Zetas cartel, a group that dates back to the late nineties. The group broke away from the Gulf Cartel just four years ago, and has started to branch out on its own. It has now become Mexico’s largest drug cartel.

Muslim killed N.J. teen ‘for being an American’

Radio host launches campaign to publicize fact domestic terrorism already in U.S.

A confessed domestic terrorist sits in prison after using information obtained from the Southern Poverty Law Center to target workers at a Christian organization in Washington, a case that drew little attention from the Obama administration.

A “gay”-rights advocate, he attacked Christians identified by SPLC as members of a “hate” organization for their opposition to homosexual behavior.

Now, an alleged Muslim terrorist has described his brutal killing of a New Jersey teen “for being American” as a “just kill,” and a radio talk-show host says he’s not going to let it slide this time.

“It was, in fact, an act of jihad, perpetrated by a fellow American who sympathized more with those who want to annihilate us than with his own country and its people,” said radio host Todd Pettengill of “The Todd Show” on WPLJ in New York City.

He discussed for eight minutes on air the death of 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin, recounting the declaration by the suspect, Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, that the June 25 attack was a “just kill.”

“Domestic terrorism, no matter what the president says, is already here,” he warns.

Police ‘hid’ abuse of 60 girls by Asian takeaway workers linked to murder of 14-year-old

The revelations about the scale of grooming centred around the downmarket cafes comes amid growing concern at disturbing cases involving mainly Asian gangs exploiting young white girls for sex in the Midlands and North of England.

At least 60 schoolgirls were groomed for sex by workers at seedy takeaways linked to the murder of a 14-year-old girl.

Children as young as 11 were targeted by mainly Asian staff at fast food outlets in Blackpool. They were offered food, alcohol and cigarettes in return for sexual favours.

An unpublicised police report produced after 14-year-old Charlene Downes vanished in 2003 found the girls, most if not all white, had been victims of the ‘honey pot’ premises. There were claims last night that the report was suppressed for reasons of political correctness.

Four years later another girl, 15-year-old Paige Chivers, also went missing. Detectives believe she was killed like Charlene, whose body has never been found.

Two Middle Eastern restaurant owners were acquitted over Charlene’s murder in 2007 and the crime remains unsolved.

The pair still run a kebab shop in Blackpool which was also linked to Paige, and she too was identified as a victim of sexual exploitation. Last year police reported that the takeaway was attracting young girls who were being supplied with alcohol and cocaine.

Jack the Ripper unmasked: How amateur sleuth used DNA breakthrough to identify Britain’s most notorious criminal 126 years after string of terrible murders

DNA evidence on a shawl found at Ripper murder scene nails killer. By testing descendants of victim and suspect, identifications were mad. Jack the Ripper has been identified as Polish-born Aaron Kosminski. Kosminski was a suspect when the Ripper murders took place in 1888. Hairdresser Kosminski lived in Whitechapel and was later put in an asylum.

It is the greatest murder mystery of all time, a puzzle that has perplexed criminologists for more than a century and spawned books, films and myriad theories ranging from the plausible to the utterly bizarre.

But now, thanks to modern forensic science, The Mail on Sunday can exclusively reveal the true identity of Jack the Ripper, the serial killer responsible for at least five grisly murders in Whitechapel in East London during the autumn of 1888.

DNA evidence has now shown beyond reasonable doubt which one of six key suspects commonly cited in connection with the Ripper’s reign of terror was the actual killer – and we reveal his identity.

A shawl found by the body of Catherine Eddowes, one of the Ripper’s victims, has been analysed and found to contain DNA from her blood as well as DNA from the killer.

The landmark discovery was made after businessman Russell Edwards, 48, bought the shawl at auction and enlisted the help of Dr Jari Louhelainen, a world-renowned expert in analysing genetic evidence from historical crime scenes.

Using cutting-edge techniques, Dr Louhelainen was able to extract 126-year-old DNA from the material and compare it to DNA from descendants of Eddowes and the suspect, with both proving a perfect match.

Illegal Immigrant Convicted of Killing 2 Girls Released From Jail, Won’t Be Deported (Video)

An illegal immigrant convicted of killing two young girls in a hit-and-run accident in Oregon won’t serve jail time or be deported, Laura Ingraham reported on Fox News last night. Last month, an immigration judge released Cynthia Garcia-Cisneros from prison and dismissed her case. The Oregonian reported the 19-year-old had “temporary permission to be in the country through the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program,” which President Obama instituted in 2012.

Prosecutors say that within two weeks they expect to have a decision as to whether a Salt Lake City police officer was justified in shooting 20-year-old Dillon Taylor on Aug. 11 outside a convenient store.

Investigators from South Salt Lake delivered their findings to Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill on Tuesday, Gill said. Prosecutors had some questions after initially reviewing the case and now are hunkering down to examine all the material.

“We’ve got a lot of information to go through,” Gill said.

Police: Vietnamese gang suspected in brutal abductions of three men, killing of two in Philadelphia

One by one, they were brought out of the van, and stabbed again on the riverbanks, sources said. The two brothers’ throats were slit and their legs were chained to buckets filled with tar before they were tossed into the shallows.

The two brothers were being held, bound and beaten, in a garage behind a Southwest Philadelphia house when their captors allowed one to make a phone call, law enforcement sources say.

They needed $100,000, he told the friend who answered, or they would be killed.

Their captors – members of a violent Vietnamese drug crew, law enforcement sources say – had given them the money to buy drugs, but the brothers had instead gambled it away at a casino.

The friend, a 23-year-old Northern Liberties man originally from Vietnam, said he could muster only $40,000. That, the brothers said, would be enough to save their lives.

But when their friend arrived at the house on the 2400 block of 72nd Street early Wednesday, he was robbed, bound, gagged, and stabbed alongside the brothers, sources said.

In the pre-dawn hours on Wednesday, sources said, all three men, still alive, were loaded into a van and driven to a parking lot on Kelly Drive, near the rowing grandstands on the Schuylkill.

Deadly square: 43 people shot in Miami’s Liberty Square area in 2014

Despite lower crime elsewhere, 43 people have been shot and seven of them have died in a rash of violence in and around a Miami public housing project.

Antwan Washington was shot twice. So was Marquise Riley-Asbury, whose life the second bullet ended. Another man was shot as he got off a bus, and still another while in bed at home.

In the first seven months of this year, 43 people living in a 13-square-block area surrounding Miami’s Liberty Square housing project have been shot, police records show. Seven have died.

The victims range in age from 10 to 67. They are men, women and children. Three teenage girls were shot after getting into a fight with three other girls. One man heard gunfire and didn’t know he was shot until he looked down at his ankle.

A pastor was killed fighting off attackers grabbing for his fake gold chain. A grandmother was gunned down outside a grocery store.

Although serious crime is at historically low levels in Miami and across the nation, the number of shootings so far this year in and around the city’s most notorious housing project — one built to create a better life for black residents in Coconut Grove and Overtown following the Great Depression — is staggering compared to recent years.

Jurors choose death penalty for Marine in double-murder

“To me, the four of them are a waste of humanity, They get what they deserve,” Henryka Varga said today after a jury recommended the death penalty for the fourth man convicted of murdering her son, Marine Sgt. Jan Pietrzak, and daughter-in-law, Quiana Jenkins-Pietrzak.

Jurors have recommended the death penalty for the last of four Camp Pendleton Marines convicted of murdering a U.S. Marine Corps sergeant and his wife in their French Valley home in 2008.

The mothers of the victims clasped hands and exhaled deeply as the death verdicts were read Thursday afternoon in a Riverside courtroom.

Kesaun Kedron Sykes, 27, was found guilty earlier this month of murder and allegations of robbery and sexual assault. Sykes had faced the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole for what prosecutor Daniel DeLimon called “a prolonged and sadistic murder.”

Sykes’ sentencing is set for Nov. 7.

“To me, the four of them are a waste of humanity,” said Henryka Varga, mother of Sgt. Jan Pietrzak, 24. “They get what they deserve.”
