The mayor of Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia and Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s hometown, succumbed to his wounds from a suicide bomb attack.
Mayor Abdirahman Omar Osman passed away Thursday following a suicide bombing by Al Shabab, an Islamic terrorist organization, according to Reuters. Osman was inside his office July 24 when the explosion took place. The mayor, along with nine other victims were airlifted to Qatar for treatment.
Osman and six of his colleagues ultimately died from the attack. The Somali government is holding three days of mourning in honor of Osman’s passing, ordering the country’s flags to flown at half mast. Overall, more than 10 people have died from the blast.
“The Mogadishu mayor has died today in Qatar. May Allah rest his soul. The other injured ones are still being treated there in Qatar,” a spokesperson for the Mogadishu government, Saleh Omar Hassan, said to Reuters Thursday.
The ‘Lion of London Bridge’ who bravely fought off Islamic terrorists has been put on an anti-radicalization terror watchlist by the UK government over fears he could become a right-wing extremist.
49-year-old Roy Larner screamed “f*** you, I’m Millwall” as he defended himself against jihadists who ended up killing 8 people and injuring 38 others during the horrific attack in London two years ago.
Two separate explosions rocked Malmö, Sweden, amid a 24-hour wave of violent incidents that included a bomb scare that ended with a police shooting at the central train station and another deadly shooting in the troubled city.
Harrowed residents told local media they are preparing to leave Malmö, with one man calling it a “war zone.”
Police say a “large number of people” reported a “heavy” late-night blast at a residence in the culturally-enriched ‘no-go zone’ of Rosengård.

The UK Foreign Office has warned British vacationers to remain vigilant in Western European countries this summer due to a high risk of terrorism and other dangers, including violent protests and migrants.
Germany, France and Belgium have all been identified as countries where terrorist attacks are now “very likely,” with Islamic radicals specifically identified as the “main threat” in Germany.
“Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Germany,” the UK government warns. “Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in public places visited by foreigners. The German government has announced that increased security has been put in place as a precaution at public buildings, major events, transport hubs and large public gatherings.”
Similar alerts are in place for Spain and the Netherlands.

WASHINGTON — “The only good Muslim is a dead one.” Rep Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., teared up as she read the chilling words from hate mail she had recently received.
It was a poignant, disturbing moment from a House Oversight hearing on white nationalism. Tlaib wiped the tears away as she read the vitriolic words, leading Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill., seated next to Tlaib, to put a consoling hand on her shoulder. Meanwhile, on the dais behind them, Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, fiddled with a smartphone plug.
Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. are the first Muslim women in Congress. Both have been the targets of political attacks, but also of threats on their lives. A man in New York was arrested in April for threatening to kill Omar.

The left-wing extremist who was arrested on charges of attempting to provide support to a terrorist group posted on Instagram “should I bomb Trump tower?” but was not banned even as the social media giant banned several conservative commentators as “dangerous persons”.
20-year-old Jonathan Xie was arrested yesterday morning after authorities said Xie had conducted “detailed surveillance” on the Manhattan skyscraper.
Xie also allegedly wired money abroad to support Hamas, which the United States lists as a terrorist organization.
Not being the brightest, at one point Xie posted a yes/no poll on Instagram asking, “Should I bomb Trump Tower?”
A new report by CSIS, a national security think tank, has found that Islamic terror attacks in Europe increased by 725 per cent between 2007 and 2017.
This figure, which includes both successful and unsuccessful attacks, once again highlights the fact that Islamic extremism is by far the biggest terror threat to the west.
The numbers also show that 2017 saw the highest number of Islamic terror attacks in modern European history.
“Obviously nothing to do with mass migration,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr. in response to the report.
ONE OF THREE women allegedly involved in a foiled plot in 2016 to blow up a car packed with gas canisters near the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris was today sentenced to eight years in prison by a French court for earlier offences.
Ines Madani, 22, was sentenced following a three-day trial during which she was accused of encouraging would-be jihadists to go to Syria and participate in attacks against France between March 2015 and June 2016.
She used Telegram – an encrypted messaging app widely used by jihadists to communicate.
Judge Isabelle Prevost-Desprez said that Madani was “recruited” by Oumar Diaw, also known as Abou Barrou, an influential jihadist of the Islamic State group.

Several of the so-called national security experts at CNN that you see on television every night have direct links to the nation of Qatar, a terror-funding, Islamist enclave in the Middle East that has placed itself on the warpath against America’s most important regional allies.
But you would never know about these connections, because none of the CNN regulars disclose their financial and/or institutional ties to Qatar when they appear on the airwaves. And off air, they are also not forthcoming about their Qatar-backed connections. Even when it comes to discussing issues where they have a clear conflict of interest, such as commenting on Israeli, Saudi, or UAE affairs, these CNN regulars have no issue going to bat against Qatar’s rivals, while never mentioning that their editorial freedom is restricted or that they are personally compromised.
