Gunmen kidnapped a burqa-clad American aid worker and her driver while they were traveling through southern Afghanistan early Saturday, a provincial governor said.
The two were stopped by gunmen outside the southern Afghan city of Kandahar, said Gov. Asadullah Khalid. He blamed the kidnappings on the 'enemy of Islam and the enemy of Afghanistan.'
A powerful bomb targeting a security convoy killed at least 10 people and wounded many more in a Christian area of the Lebanese capital, Beirut, on Friday, local television reported.
An army official put the death toll at three and told AFP that Captain Wissam Eid, a member of the Internal Security Forces, was one of the dead.
Flames engulfed cars, trapping several people as firefighters battled to extinguish the fires and security forces cordoned off the area.
A series of explosions thundered in the Iraqi capital Saturday morning, police said, including one from a mortar round that hit the U.S.-controlled Green Zone. One of the explosions was a roadside bomb that targeted a U.S. patrol in eastern Baghdad.
A police officer said the blast site was sealed by American forces and there was no immediate way to detail damage or casualties. There was no immediate report of the incident from the U.S. military.
Another police officer confirmed a mortar round hit the heavily protected Green Zone. The Americans did not report damage or casualties from that incident either. Both officers spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to release the information.
On Friday, shaken by two days of deadly bombings in Mosul, the government said it would dispatch several thousand more security forces to that city in a 'decisive' bid to drive al-Qaida in Iraq from its last major stronghold.
U.S. officials monitoring terrorist web sites have discovered a call for using forest fires as weapons against 'crusader' nations, in what may explain some recent wildfires in places like southern California and Greece.
A terrorist website was discovered recently that carried a posting that called for 'Forest Jihad.' The posting was listed on the Internet on Nov. 26 and reported in U.S. intelligence channels last week.
The statement, in Arabic, said that 'summer has begun so do not forget the Forest Jihad.'
The writer called on all Muslims in the United States, Europe, Russia and Australia to 'start forest fires.'
The posting quoted imprisoned Al Qaida terrorist Abu Musab Al-Suri, as saying 'Jihad is an art just like poetry, music, and the fine arts. There are people that draw and there are others that are jihadists. They both act upon inspiration.'
Al-Suri is a senior Al Qaida leader captured in Pakistan in 2005 who is believed to be in U.S. custody.
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said, in an interview published Saturday, that Iran is 'quite advanced' in its work on atomic weapons and may already be fashioning a nuclear warhead.
'We suspect they are probably already working on warheads for ground-to-ground missiles,' Barak said in an interview with The Washington Post and Newsweek magazine.
He also suggested that Iranians 'probably ... have another clandestine enrichment operation beyond the one in Natanz.'
The remarks were in stark contrast the conclusion of a US National Intelligence Estimate released late last year that said Tehran had abandoned its quest for nuclear weapons as far back as 2003.
Barak sharply disagreed with this assessment.
In America it seems that from the information that has been released from intelligence services and local police, the Latin street gang MS13 have been working with Al Qaeda to smuggle arms, international terrorists and even nuclear weapons into the American homeland.
For Islam's General's it is a very logical step to try and open up connections with MS13, if they have not already got the connections due to the gang having well trodden smuggling routes straight into the U.S homeland already in place.
MS13 have exploded over the past ten years or so upon American culture, they have spread throughout America and have now become the biggest street gang throughout the U.S. That is no small feat to have achieved and leaves a very deadly vicious criminal network throughout the whole of the U.S from East to West coast.
A criminal street gang anywhere in the world makes its money through all types of criminal enterprises with street drugs like Heroin being the most lucrative of them all. It is this type of commodity that helps finance growth within a criminal organisation due to the vast wealth that is earned through the drugs trade and the distribution networks you need to have in place over a large area.
The bigger the area you control then the more money you make, America being so large and with the likes of the Italian mafia no longer involved in this type of trade it makes Heroin an ideal fuel in which to finance the growth of what is now Americas largest and most feared street gang.
