An African holiday resort popular with Western tourists has reportedly been stormed by gunmen. Gunmen stormed Le Campement Kangaba in Dougourakoro, to the east of the capital Bamako, a resort foreign residents often visit for weekend breaks. It is not yet known if there are any casualties from the incident, but a major operation involving Malian troops and soldiers from France´s Bakhane counter-terrorist force is still ongoing. ´Security forces are in place. Campement Kangaba is blocked off and an operation is under way,´ Security Ministry spokesman Baba Cisse said. ´The situation is under control.´ Security has gradually worsened in Mali since French forces pushed

Gee, let me guess. Disgruntled Presbyterians again? Buddhists on the rampage? Underpaid workers seeking a raise?

Not all Muslims are terrorists, but almost all terrorists are Muslims. Islam is incompatible with humanity.

The Daily Mail, in their PC wisdom, have this story´s comments under moderation. This means that any comments with useful insights into the perps will be discarded before publishing. For some reason the story also doesn´t have much in the way of details. It´s odd how such a major story only has ELEVEN reader´s comments showing up a few hours after the story was broken. They certainly don´t want any protected class to have it´s feelings offended!

From my one friend who worked out of Mali for a while, then moved to Egypt, finally to Malta, Mali is not a place anyone from the first world would ever want to go "on purpose".

Not exactly a island paradise or anything.

As Theodore Dalrymple says these are the affluent, unaware Westerners who are trying to look "beyond the paltry flux of day-to-day existence, especially when that existence is a securely comfortable one." I.e., self-labeled adventurers who want risk free vacations in exotic locations. Hiking in the mountains between Iraq and Iran, anyone?

#9, riding the ordinary intercity trains in India was adequately exotic for me. Never had any issues, and the people were fine, but that is far enough from Kansas to meet my requirements for adventure. No offense intended to India, we enjoyed it immensely, would go again. But there are things to see and do in India, well worth the trip.

Mali? On purpose? No.

REDSTONE Arsenal, a US Army base in Alabama, was locked down this afternoon amid fears of an active shooter. A spokesman for the base told staff members to "run, hide, fight" as authorities attempt to determine the legitimacy of the alert. It came a day before an active shooter drill was scheduled to take place, although officials at the base assured staff members today´s alert is a "real world event". Redstone Arsenal spokesman Christopher Colster said: “It’s a scary situation but I believe one we’re prepared for. “In one of our buildings this morning there were reports of an active shooter.

Hillary Clinton divulged details about her third memoir, out this fall, and shared her post-election reading list to attendees at the American Library Association conference in Chicago on Tuesday. ´It is the most personal book I´ve written,´ Clinton told the crowd of the yet-untitled book, which will chronicle the 2016 election and address ´ongoing threats to our democracy.´ ´It will give readers an idea of what it´s really like to run for president.

THE United Nations´ top rights official accused US President Donald Trump of breaking taboos by his apparent support for torture techniques, and warned world powers against undermining civil liberties in their fight against militants. Zeid Ra´ad al-Hussein also lambasted British Prime Minister Theresa May for threatening to change human rights laws if they got in the way of security operations, saying her words would give heart to authoritarian governments. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights told an audience in London late on Monday that strident statements in the wake of attacks risked undermining international rights treaties.

Australians are getting older, turning their their backs on religion and welcoming more migrants from Asia than from Europe. Results of the 2016 Census, disrupted by cyber attacks, paint a picture of a changing Australia. The number of Australians older than 65 has grown by nearly 665,000 since the 2011 Census, data released on Tuesday shows. In the past five years 1.3 million migrants have arrived and for the first time in our history the majority of people born overseas are now from Asia, not Europe. Two-thirds of the country´s population are born in Australia. England and New Zealand are still the most common

A U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship´s captain. Multiple U.S. and Japanese investigations are under way into how the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald and the much larger ACX Crystal container ship collided in clear weather south of Tokyo Bay in the early hours of June 17.

To understand what can and ought to be done, it is first important to understand the nature of the BDS movement. Earlier this month Norway, Denmark and Switzerland did something surprising. Norway announced that it was demanding the return of its money from the Palestinian Human Rights and Humanitarian Law Secretariat, for the latter’s funding of a Palestinian women’s group that built a youth center near Nablus named for PLO mass murderer Dalal Mughrabi. Denmark followed, announcing it was cutting off all funding to the group. And last week, the Swiss parliament passed a resolution directing the government to amend Swiss law

Is it the end of Google´s ´big brother´ policy? The software giant announced that it will stop scanning users´ private e-mail addresses, as it has done until now to tailor personalized advertisements to anyone on the Internet. Google Cloud senior vice president Diane Greene said that Google´s free Gmail email service will continue to offer personalized advertisements, but said that it would switch to the less-intrusive method used in its corporate G Suite Gmail, which it sells to businesses.

Japan has broadcast a television warning urging citizens to lie on the ground or seek shelter in the event of North Korea launching a nuclear attack. The government advice also tells people to stay away from windows, protect their heads if they are indoors and to hide behind solid objects if an attack is imminent. Instructions triggered by Japan´s satellite-based J-Alert public warning system will be sent out through speakers installed across the country, the 30-second clip confirms. The broadcast comes amid heightened tensions between the West and North Korea under dictator Kim Jong-un. According to Kyodo News, the advice is being aired

A GLOBAL financial crash is brewing as China and other emerging markets are binging on debt, the world´s central bank watchdog has warned. A number of economies in developing countries look worryingly similar to the US and UK before the devastating crash hit in 2007, with soaring house prices, slow economic growth, and a large credit bubble. The stark warning from the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) said low interest rates are helping to keep debt at manageable levels. But the end of the current cycle of global growth now risks ending in a crash with a vengeance, warned Claudio Borio, head

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as
