Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto says the government has given the United Nations High Commission for Refugees three months to close a refugee camp and send the 400,000 Somali Muslims living there back to their country.
The Kenyan government says the Dadaab refugee camp in eastern Kenya has become a recruitment center for the Muslim terrorist group al-Shabab whose gunmen last week killed 148 people at the country’s Garissa College University. President Ruto said in rally on Saturday that Kenya must be secured at all costs.

At least 25 people suffered heavy injuries including 10 of severe acid burns at Jawad town in Madhya Pradesh’s Neemuch district when Muslim Jihadi miscreants pelted rocks and threw acid bombs at a Hindu religious procession being taken out on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti in state in Central India.
Hindu Existence Soon both sides engaged in fighting, forcing police to lob tear gas shells and cane charge to disperse the clashing crowd. The incident happened when the Hanuman Jayanti procession reached Khurra Chowk Mosque where Muslims targeted the Hindu people in procession from different sides.
Though a few policemen tried to bring the situation under control, all efforts turned out futile as the situation went out of hand slowly.
Heavy violence flared up, with the Muslim mob setting fire to residential buildings, vehicles and the shops which left many people, including police personnel, injured. When Hindus started retaliation, police appeared to want to save the Jihadis.
This attack upon Hindus on Hanuman Jayanti procession happened in a state ruled by a BJP Govt in Madhya Pradesh seems to be incapable for providing the safety security of the Hindus in their religious festivals.
Nearly a dozen shops in Neemuch-Darwaja were set on fire. By the time fire tenders reached the spot, fire had gutted shops and a lot of damage was already done. 45 people have been arrested and heavy security has been deployed.
OP India Sadly, there has been near total silence in mainstream media about this incident, with TV channels not giving any coverage whatsoever. In all the cases, no media report was willing to name the “specific group” or “community” although it was pretty obvious. Online media did carry some reports, but they were extremely vague in nature, as seen below:
Zee News: “where stone-pelting between two communities left at least 20 people injured”
Business Standard: “incidents of arson and stone-pelting involving members of two communities”
New Indian Express: “…when some miscreants pelted stones..”. “Police said members of a specific group hurled stones at a religious procession”
Times of India: “Some miscreants on Friday threw stones at a procession”
The Hindu: “Some miscreants on Friday threw stones”
Three Chinese Uighur Muslim terrorists executed for their role in train station attack that killed 31 and injured 141 people last year.
Final total was 31 dead, 141 wounded
It said they had committed intentional homicide, led a terrorist group and organized the mass knifing, which also wounded 141 people. The names of those executed were Uighur, a Muslim ethnic group from Xinjiang, northwest China. Authorities had blamed terrorists from the region for the attack, just another in an increasing wave of Muslim terrorist attacks being waged on the Chinese public.
The train station attack shook the country and state media labeled it “China’s 9/11.” Dressed in black and wielding long knives and machetes, several assailants stormed the station on March 1, 2014 seemingly hacking at anyone in sight.
Authorities said police shot four perpetrators dead on the scene and captured another. It was the deadliest of a recent spate of violent incidents that have been carried out by the Uyghur Muslims.
UK Daily Mail Distressing photos circulating online showed bodies, pools of blood and abandoned luggage scattered across the terminal floor in the wake of what authorities termed an ‘organised, premeditated, violent terrorist attack’.
Beijing blamed the attack on ‘separatists’ from the resource-rich far western Xinjiang region, where at least 200 people have died in attacks and clashes between locals and security forces over the last year.
The remote autonomous region, which borders Central Asia, is home to the mostly Muslim Uighur minority. But campaign groups have accused China of preventing the men from having a fair trial.
Dilxat Raxit, a spokesman for the Munich-based World Uyghur Congress said: ‘China is using the death penalty for political means in order to avoid the root cause of the problem.’ (Yes, the need to drive all the Muslims out of China)
‘The defendants did not get a dignified trial and China used this event to incite discrimination against Uighurs.’ However, China has vowed to step up punishment of ‘violent terrorists’, and is drafting its first-ever anti-terrorism law.
Chinese courts convicted 712 people on terrorism-related charges last year, an increase of more than 13 per cent, according to chief justice Zhou Qiang.
Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who is believed to have been the intended target of one of the Copenhagen shootings in February, says police have told him he can never return to his home in southern Sweden.
The Local Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who gained international notoriety for a cartoon portraying the Prophet Muhammad as a dog, emerged unscathed from a deadly attack in a Copenhagen last month, the latest in a string of death threats against him.
Vilks was speaking at a debate on Islam and freedom of expression when a gunman fired a volley of shots into the Krudttønden cultural centre, leaving a 55-year-old man dead and three police officers wounded. The 68-year-old artist has also survived a foiled assassination plot and other attacks since his drawing of the Muslim spiritual leader was published in a local Swedish paper in 2007 with an editorial on the importance of freedom of expression.
Vilks, who has been in hiding since the attacks in Denmark, says he has been moved between three different locations and was told by Swedish police this week that he could not go back to his house in Höganäs in southern Sweden.
After being briefly allowed to collect some belongings several weeks ago, police supervised as a removal company packed up the rest of his possessions on Tuesday afternoon.
“Police did not want me to be there, they watched as everything I had there was moved. I had to make some quick decisions about the stuff I wanted to keep,” he told The Local’s team in Stockholm on Wednesday.
“I am still living in hiding. No one really knows what they [the police] are planning and discussing. They haven’t found a solution. They want to put me in a place where it is safe to keep me for a long time. My last house was very close to the road and you could reach it too quickly or get away. You would have needed a whole army there,” he added.
The 68-year-old cartoonist, who whipped up an outcry across the Muslim world with his 2007 sketch of the Prophet Muhammad as a dog, was already living under police protection before the shootings in Copenhagen in February. Vilks was among those attending the event at a cultural centre that was attacked.
He returned to the city earlier this month to receive a prize from the Danish Free Press Society, but has otherwise rarely been seen in public and several talks and discussions he was due to attend have been cancelled.
Asked about whether he felt his own rights were being restricted as he sought to promote freedom of expression, he said: “I am getting used to it because the most important thing for me is that I have the possibility to do my work and I do have a mini studio [where I am living] where I can do paintings and drawings.”
He said he was disappointed that “no one dares” to exhibit his current sketches and paintings, but pleased that he could make them available online. The Danish Free Press Society is currently selling his controversial Muhammad piece.
Five men have now been arrested in connection with the twin Copenhagen shootings at a cultural centre and Jewish building that left two people dead.
Lars Vilks has been under attack since his first Mohammed cartoons were published in 2007:
