A BRITISH security contractor has had his throat slashed by Islamic State terrorists after being thrown into a hellhole jail in Somalia. Former Foreign Legion soldier Antony Cox, 48, survived the attack by two caged Islamists who brandished improvised weapons made from razor blades. But fears for his safety were growing last night amid fears of more plots to kill him inside jihadi-infested Gaal Shire Prison in the strife-torn capital, Mogadishu. Hardman Cox - a highly-trained soldier and counter terrorism expert who rose to commander during 16 years in the famous French legion - was held during security checks on January 19. Police at Mogadishu’s Aden Adde Airport were reported to have accused him of “carrying explosive material” while trying to board an Ethiopian Airlines flight. But other sources suggested he had been detained over CS gas canisters found in his luggage. And concern was growing amid fears that corrupt Somali officials may be seeking revenge after the … [Read more...] about Brit security contractor’s throat slashed by ISIS terrorists after he’s thrown in hellhole jail in Somalia airport row

World Donald Trump President Donald Trump is reportedly planning a complete withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria in what would be the latest turns in a series of policy reversals taken by Washington throughout the conflict. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that the Pentagon was given an order to begin preparing to pull the roughly 2,000 troops deployed alongside a mostly Kurdish militia known as the Syrian Democratic Forces, and an insurgent group called Maghawir al-Thawra. The U.S. first entered the conflict by providing support to a rebel and jihadi uprising against the government in 2011, but switched its target to the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) in 2014. The group has since lost most of its territory thanks to rival campaigns waged by the U.S.-led coalition and the Syrian government, which has received Russian and Iranian support and has declared Washington's presence illegal. Just prior to the news of a potential U.S. withdrawal … [Read more...] about Why Is U.S. in Syria and How Many Troops Are There? Donald Trump Is Withdrawing from War
RUTHLESS despot Bashar al-Assad has killed nearly 100,000 of his own people and driven millions more out of Syria. However, despite mounting atrocities and international sanctions Vladimir Putin has put on a united front with the troubled tyrant. How did Russia and Putin get involved in Syria? The Soviet Union first gained influence in Syria during the 1970s by supplying aid and arms. In 2000, Vladimir Putin became president of Russia while Bashar al-Assad became president of Syria. For a decade the two countries had a fairly solid relationship but Moscow was always a lot closer to Libya. However, Russian support in Syria increased dramatically following the Arab Spring uprisings which began in 2011. When Gaddafi was overthrown in Libya, Russia saw the move as an attack on its influence in the middle east. Russia was particularly worried the US would soon start wielding more influence in the region. Putin had a long-term relationship with Gaddafi and had several billion dollars' … [Read more...] about Why does Russia support Syria and Bashar al-Assad and who else is involved in the Syrian Civil War?
ISIS sickos are circulating a chilling online poster warning of deadly knife attacks at pop and rock concerts across Europe. In the shocking image - credited to Remah Media Production- a suited man is seen holding a huge knife behind his as he lurks near a crowd of cheering music fans.

Emergency services rushed to the scene after the bomb blast in Manchester The … [Read more...] about Chilling new ISIS threat warns of jihadi knife attacks on Europe pop concerts
