Pro-migrant rescue NGO Sea-Watch has complained the Libyan coast guard interfered in their rescue operations whilst the Libyans allege the NGO was operating within its territorial waters.
NGO Sea-Watch, a Berlin-based organisation that picks up migrants in the Mediterranean and ferries them to Europe, has accused the Libyans of acting outside its territorial waters after its ship was accosted by a vessel from the Libyan coast guard on Wednesday.
In a press release, the NGO claimed they were 20 miles off the coast of Libya when a wooden boat packed full of migrants approached their position. Before the group could take the migrants on board, and take them to Europe, the Libyan patrol intervened, almost running into the NGO ship. The Libyans then took the migrants back to North Africa.
Sea-Watch claims the coast guard was operating outside of the sovereign waters of Libya, which extend 12 miles off the coast.
"Jews are the "offspring of apes and pigs".are just some of the choice words and phrases you may here as your attending or simply walking by this anti-Israel, anti-Somatic, anti-Jew protest being held in Sweden.
The man was "seriously wounded" near the northern port town of Boulogne-sur-Mer and was allegedly driving the BMW used in the attack in the capital just hours earlier. He was shot five times, while an officer was also hit by a bullet in the thigh before the man was arrested, a source revealed. The attack occurred in Paris' Levallois-Perret area as the car, allegedly "parked up in wait close to a barracks", suddenly accelerated and struck the servicemen "at high speed". The wounded soldiers had been on a routine patrol as part of Operation Sentinelle, which was created after Islamic extremist attacks in 2015.
French police shot and arrested a suspect in a dramatic motorway chase Wednesday after a car smashed into soldiers outside a barracks in a Paris suburb, injuring six.
The suspected terror attack is the latest in a string of assaults that have hit France since January 2015, claiming more than 230 lives.
The servicemen were hit by a BMW which drove down a quiet street in the upmarket western Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret at around 6am GMT.
It accelerated as it neared the troops, rammed into them and then sped away.
"I heard a huge crash which I thought was the sound of scaffolding being put up," Thierry Chappe, a resident in a building opposite the crime scene, told AFP.
Police later gave chase to the vehicle on a motorway north of Paris, and shot and wounded the suspect, a man aged in his late 30s who was also arrested, sources involved in the manhunt said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
After military base attack, Venezuela could be on the brink of a civil war After military base attack, Venezuela could be on the brink of a civil war
Venezuela could face a full-fledged civil war if military support for dictator Nicolas Maduro erodes.
Venezuelan authorities arrested seven men over the weekend whom they claimed took part in an attack on a military base outside of Valencia, the country's third-largest city. The strike took place after a video made the rounds on social media Sunday featuring men in military fatigues calling for a rebellion against Maduro.
"The significance lies in whether this suggests that Maduro is losing his grip on the military and whether we can expect to see more mutinies to come, or if this is just an isolated incident," Stuart Culverhouse, global head of macro and fixed income research at Exotix Capital, said in an email.
"Maintaining the support of the military is a key factor in Maduro's survival, and many in the military will have a vested interest in ensuring (his) survival," Culverhouse said.
Venezuela's top-ranking military officials have benefited greatly from Maduro's government. They hold influential roles and have received considerable financial sums in exchange for their loyalty to Maduro. But experts say that support is waning as the country's economic and social conditions continue to deteriorate.
As support for Maduro dwindles, the chances of a civil war increase.
It was early June when terrorists in a rental van with 12-inch ceramic knives strapped to their wrists ran down pedestrians on London Bridge, ditched the vehicle, and then began stabbing patrons at the Borough Market. That attack made headlines around the world, but it certainly wasn’t the only stabbing attack in London this year, and Mayor Sadiq Khan this week called for Google and YouTube to crack down on videos that encourage gang violence and knife crime. -- Ummm. It's not the videos. Mayor of London: “I’m deeply concerned about the rise in knife crime. Internet giants must toughen guidelines & remove violent videos.” -- So your response to an epidemic of young men stabbing other young men to death is to police the internet? You are part of the problem.
Yeah, that'll do it. It's always a youtube video with these guys. Speaking of YouTube, the mayor appeared in a YouTube video to call for YouTube to remove videos that glorify gang violence and knife crime. Poor London. This guy is such a twit. Yes, YouTube can definitely solve the problem of knife crime in London. FFS. Internet companies don't stab people. People stab people. Better and more policing would possibly be an effective deterrent? Stop and search? Oh no that's racist. Nothing to do with the Mayor reducing stop and search by Police? Alternatively London could elect somebody, say a mayor or something like that, and make them responsible for policing. Focus on the people who plunge knives into other people's flesh & hack off limbs with machetes, Yahoo & Google don't do that. #PartandParcel
I have yet to see a keyboard jump up from a desk & start stabbing people with itself. What an idiot. Internet is not the problem. Which video committed the knife crime? I want names darn it….if violent videos are committing crimes, arrest them all! If Mayor Of Londonistan really believes knife crime is cos of YouTube, & not gangs, or imported culture/religion, then he'll never solve it. Knife crimes, acid attacks and overall security. we are living in London or third world country? I'm deeply concerned that London has turned into a 3rd world toilet since you took over and all you do is blame "internet giants". RESIGN. Censorship is the worst idea you could possibly offer. Just ban the internet and anything sharp. Nothing bad will ever happen again. How about remove violent knife wielding criminals? Just a thought….
Mexican officials say gunmen have attacked a group at a beach in the Los Cabos tourist region at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. Bullets killed three men and wounded two people.
The prosecutor's office for Baja California Sur state says the attack happened Sunday afternoon at the entrance to Playa Palmilla, a popular beach next to San Jose del Cabo. Its statement gives no motive.
Authorities say the beach was crowded with tourists, both Mexican and foreign, when the shooting started, and police evacuated the area.
Southern Baja California has seen a surge in violence this year, though mostly outside tourist areas. Analysts blame much of the bloodshed on fighting among factions in the Sinaloa drug cartel and also clashes with the rival Jalisco New Generation cartel.
350 newly arrived illegal migrants riot at their accommodated hotel, which is paid for by Italian taxpayers. They demand free money, new clothes and wifi from the government. They come illegally and contribute nothing but they demand to have the same things as the locals.
Tripoli, Libya - The police raid a hideout of African migrants who are planning to board a boat to enter Italy illegally. Hopefully they will be sent back to where they come from.
The building was apparently owned by an NGO that is linked to the liberal billionaire, George Soros.
Florence, Italy - The migrant who threw rocks at people near a restaurant in a previous video got caught and beaten up by the restaurant employees. I don't understand Italian but I'm guessing the bleeding heart liberals nearby complained and yelled at the restaurant employees for beating the migrant.
Portland, OR – Far-left masked Antifa members showed up at the Patriot Prayer ‘Freedom March’ Sunday to disrupt and attack Trump supporters. Antifa must be designated a terrorist organization. Masks should also be banned for public protesters. Portland Police announced that anyone breaking the law will be subject to arrest. KATU News captured footage of the march and the violent brawls. Bloodied man being tended to. Trump supporters chanting ‘USA! USA!’ while left-wing Antifa (the real fascists) scream ‘Nazi’s go home!’ -- More fighting and more pepper spray. Antifa burning an American flag. -- Although nobody was arrested Sunday, Portland Police announced that they are reviewing video feed and people involved in unlawful activity are subject to arrest today or a later date.
The Spanish Red Cross says it has tended to 186 migrants who stormed a pedestrian border post to enter Spain's North African enclave of Ceuta from Morocco.
Attempts to cross by force at pedestrian border posts are unusual as they are normally heavily policed. The thousands of sub-Saharan African migrants living illegally in Morocco normally try to scale the border fences surrounding Ceuta and Melilla, Spain's other North African enclave, in their bid to enter Europe.
Ceuta's Red Cross tweeted that four migrants were taken to a city hospital for injuries after the crossing early Monday.
Spain's Europa Press news agency said one police officer was injured.
Comment from the Interior Ministry in Ceuta was not immediately available.
On entering, the migrants head for temporary migrant accommodation centers. They are eventually repatriated or let go.
Anti-fascist protesters and Trump supporters clashed in violent altercations during dueling protests in Portland over the weekend, leading to three arrests.
Members of the anti-fascist 'Antifa' movement and conservative group Patriot Prayer threw punches at one another as pepper spray filled the air during protests at Salmon Street Springs in Tom McCall Waterfront Park on Sunday afternoon.
Both protests began around 2pm, with Patriot Prayer promoting 'freedom and tolerance for people who think differently' while Antifa members chanted 'No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA', characterizing the other protesters as white supremacists.
The Patriot Prayer group was made up of about 150 Donald Trump supporters waving flags and wearing Make America Great Again Hats.
Meanwhile, many of the antifa members wore black bandannas to cover their faces and at one point gathered in a small group to burn an American flag.
In footage from the incident, dozens of protesters can be seen shoving one another and throwing punches.
In the background, trumpets and drums can be heard playing notes and beats at random.
No serious injuries were reported following the clashes, but three people were arrested.
The police in Anambra state on Sunday confirmed that only one gunman killed eight worshippers and injured 18 others in an early morning attack on St. Philip Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Earlier reports had said the killings were done by gunmen, with rumours that some Boko Haram elements carried out the attack.
The commissioner of police, Garba Umar dismissed the rumour and said the attack was carried out by a lone wolf gunman, who is an indigene of the area.
Umar told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka that the remains of the dead had been deposited at Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital Nnewi.
Umar also said that the injured had been taken to the hospital.
He said that preliminary investigations by the police revealed that the attack was carried out by an indigene of the area.
“From our findings, it is very clear that the person who carried the attack must be an indigene of the area.
Gunmen on Sunday stormed the St. Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra state, east of Nigeria.
A witness told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday that the gunmen went into the church during the 5:45 a.m. mass and identified a particular man and shot him.
He said that they later went on rampage and shot at the remaining over 100 worshippers.
Scores of people were killed in the church while other critically injured worshippers died on the way to the Nnamdi Azikiwe Teaching Hospital, Nnewi.
Members of “Antifa” initially showed up the peaceful rally, but quickly made their way to the Patriot Prayer “Freedom March” several blocks away. The two groups quickly clashed. Several violent fights were witnessed by KATU News crews throughout the area, but as opposed to previous protests, there was little to no police presence breaking up the groups.
Clashes between Antifa and Patriot Prayer moved toward the peaceful rally further north on the waterfront. Organizers quickly moved across the street to avoid any conflict.
“We are not a hate group, we are people who love, this one, and we are people who exercise their right to free speech, this is the way we do this here,” said Romeo Sosa, a member of VOZ Workers Rights Education Project.
While they were forced to move to avoid conflict, organizers with the peaceful rally say their message of denouncing hate speech was not lost.

Things got heated on a recent episode of CGTN debate show The Point with Liu Xin, when Senior Colonel of the Chinese Ministry of National Defense Zhou Bo confronted Ashok Mehta, a former Major General of the Indian Army, over a land dispute on the border between the two countries.Mehta accused the Chinese media of “taking India to war” while Zhou replied adamantly that the region known as “Doklam” in India and “Donglang” in China was Chinese territory and that Indian troops risk conflict by being there.
In this clip, taken in Mannheim, African refugees brag that they are "picking all the German girls" and that they "control them" while walking walking through the city with four obese women.
The video was posted on Social media by a refugee himself.
They put special emphasis on the claim that they are "now the Kings" there, that they "love this place" and are spreading the "African way of life".
A heatwave that has left Italy sweltering in record temperatures sparked wildfires Thursday which claimed the life of one elderly woman and forced the closure of a major highway. The 79-year-old woman was found dead in a field next to her home in Sant'Omero in the central region of Abruzzo, having apparently been overcome by flames that engulfed two hectares of surrounding farmland. A section of the Via Aurelia coastal motorway that runs northwards from Rome to the Riviera had to be closed for several hours because of a major fire near Grosseto in Tuscany.
If you are curious just how bad London has gotten under the Muslim Mayor, take a look at these Indian citizens being brutally attacked by a group of Muslim migrants in an alley in what is now described as a no go zone for British police officers.
As thousands of illegal immigrants, mostly from Africa, continue to arrive to Italian shores, tensions are mounting over what to do with them.
To take just one example, in the Sicilian coastal town of Porto Empedocle, 9,480 immigrants have already arrived since the first of the year, along with 31 corpses of those who died trying to make the crossing from North Africa.
At the core of the problem is a north-south divide, with the southern regions like Sicily, Puglia, and Campania forced to bear the brunt of the waves of asylum seekers and the north refusing to offer any substantive assistance.
Pending a June 15 EU Council meeting in Brussels to once again debate the role of the EU in a coordinated immigration strategy, Italy is left on its own to deal with a situation that is already stretching its capabilities.
If you are curious just how much cultural enrichment these Muslim migrants are bringing to the United Kingdom, take a gander at this video and you'll see just how the youth of the UK are being affected by the mass migration of Muslim migrants who could care less about the citizenry of the country their invading.
In Athens, Greece, Syrian refugees protested outside the German Embassy Wednesday, calling on authorities to quickly review their applications for passage to Germany and other European countries. This is 41-year-old mother Malak Rahmoun, who fled Aleppo years ago and has been trapped in Greece for two years hoping to reunite with her husband and son in Germany.
Malak Rahmoun: "Enough waiting. Enough suffering. I am suffering from not two years here in Greece; I am suffering from five, seven years, from Aleppo until now. Stop suffering, my children want. I want my children go to school."
Meanwhile, Italy’s Coast Guard on Wednesday seized a ship operated by a German charity, accusing its crew of aiding illegal immigration from Libya to Europe. On its website, the group Jugend Rettet says it saved more than 6,500 migrants last year whose boats were in distress and who otherwise might have drowned in the Mediterranean.
Chinese authorities were apparently gearing up for war against Islamists using a mosque in the Western portion of the country that is currently a cesspool of Muslim extremism.
According to Chinese officials there were talks of a Civil War in order to seize the province from China and converted into a Muslim controlled country. Chinese authorities quickly raided the mosque and ended up finding a plethora of homemade weaponry forged by the Muslim extremists
A Palestinian teenager stabbed an Israeli man, critically wounding him, at a supermarket in the central Israeli city of Yavneh on Wednesday morning, police said. After initially saying the motive was unclear, police eventually said the stabbing appeared to have been a terror attack.
The stabber was captured by civilians, who held him down until police arrived. He was later identified by the Shin Bet security service as Ismail Ibrahim Ismail Abu Aram, 19, from the West Bank village of Yatta.
Graphic security camera footage from inside the Shufersal supermarket in Yavneh, south of Tel Aviv, showed the moments leading up to the attack and the stabbing itself.
The 43-year-old victim, who worked at the supermarket, was stocking shelves with paper towels on one of the aisles, paying no mind to the teenager who walked past him.
Suddenly the attacker turned around, took out a knife and began viciously stabbing the supermarket employee in the upper body. Though injured, the victim fought off the terrorist and tried to run away from him, blocking the aisle after him with a handcart.
The victim could then be seen running to a nearby aisle, and out of frame, with the assailant chasing him.
He suffered stab wounds to the chest, neck and head and was in unstable condition, according to medical officials.
ISIS fighter of British origin threatens Trump and claims ISIS has conquest plans for Constantinople and Rome. He is talking about the Roman Empire. After the collapse of the Roman Empire it split into two, Western and Eastern. Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium) fell to the Turks in 1453.
Turkish Sultans titles included,

A video released on social media shows Turkish soldiers beating a group of young Syrian refugees who were caught trying to enter Turkey.
The Turkish soldiers are seen beating the refugees and asking them: “Why do you come to Turkey?” “What is in Turkey for you?” “Where are you going to go in Turkey? Are you going to go to İstanbul?” “Are you going to come Turkey again?” and “Why did you help refugees cross the border? Are you refugee smugglers?”
The undated video taken by a Turkish soldier who also beat young Syrians ends with a soldier saying: “We will indeed see you at the outpost,” a clear threat that they will treat them worse at a military outpost.
Young Syrians are seen collecting cigarette butts on the ground, a punishment usually reserved for Turkish soldiers, while being beaten by the soldiers.
@MuratzenciTR, who shared the video on Twitter, said: “When you watch this without sound, you would think that [Bashar Al] Assad’s soldiers are torturing the Syrians. It is a shock when you watch it with sound…”
The soldiers have been detained and an investigation launched into them due to “unacceptable behavior,” said the Turkish military in a written statement on Sunday afternoon, confirming the video.
According to the statement the young Syrians were detained as they were trying to enter Turkey illegally at 11:00 on July 28, and were afterwards deported.
Two of Venezuela’s leading opposition figures were taken away from their homes by the country’s intelligence service early Tuesday morning, according to their families.
Family members posted videos of opposition leaders Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma being detained and claimed that Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro should be held responsible for whatever happened to them.
“12:27 am: The time when the dictatorship kidnaps Leopoldo at my house,” Lopez’s wife, Lilian Tintori, tweeted in Spanish.
“They just took Leopoldo from the house. We do not know where he is or where he is being taken. Maduro is responsible if something happens to him,” she wrote in a separate tweet.
Tintori also shared a video that appeared to show Lopez being pushed into a vehicle marked “SEBIN,” an abbreviation for Venezuela’s intelligence agency.
Ledezma’s daughter, Vanessa Ledezma, shared similar footage on Tuesday morning, writing in Spanish: “I hold Nicolas Maduro responsible for my father’s life … the sebin just dragged him away, we don’t know where he is. Let the whole world know!”
Deadly clashes between protesters and police marred voting on Sunday, as Venezuelans cast ballots on a controversial measure that could mark a turning point for their country.
The election will allow President Nicolás Maduro to replace Venezuela's current legislative body -- the National Assembly -- with a new institution called the Constituent Assembly that will have the power to rewrite the constitution.
The voting follows weeks of violent street protests in which many people have been killed or injured. On Sunday the death toll rose sharply with at least six people -- including two teenagers -- killed at protests and a National Guard officer also reported dead by the Attorney General's Office.
The death toll from the unrest ongoing since early April is 125, according to a statement from the Venezuelan attorney general's office. That number does not include at least two of Sunday's deaths, in which the reasons for the killings are under investigation.
Polls were set to close at 7 p.m. ET, after officials extended voting by one hour.
Maduro, in a 2½ minute message posted to Twitter, called the vote a historic moment.
"This has been and is a successful day with great participation," he said. "... Today is a day of victory."
International reaction was harsh, with many nations, including the United States, condemning the election.
Armed demonstrators faced off, launching fireworks and firing guns in central Caracas some ten blocks from the Government Palace, Saturday, as protests against President Nicolas Maduro continue to rock the Venezuelan capital.
Pro-Maduro protesters and anti-government demonstrators clashed in the area, attempting to take control of the neighbourhood. Earlier in the day protesters were reportedly seen throwing Molotov cocktails at the National Guard from a block of flats in the vicinity. Pro-Maduro protesters could be seen removing barricades that anti-government activists had set up earlier in the day.
