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.
The Christchurch mosque where a gunman opened fire and killed dozens of Muslims has links to radical Islamic terrorism, according to a New Zealand newspaper.
The newspaper, called Stuff, reported on a story in 2014 about how two Australians killed in Yemen by drone strike were radicalized in Christchurch mosques.
Specifically, Christopher Havard was reportedly radicalized by the Al Noor mosque, the same mosque targeted by shooter Brenton Tarrant.
The government of France recently donated 8 million euros to the Palestinian government’s 2018 general budget. [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 13, 2018]. This brings France’s direct support to the PA’s general budget to 16 million euros in 2018 (67,869,600 shekels).
The PA’s “general budget” is used by the PA to finance what has been termed its “Pay for Slay” program under which the PA pays salaries to terrorist prisoners, released terrorist prisoners and allowances to the families of dead terrorist “Martyrs”.
Despite the severe criticism of the PA practice by the international community and the PA’s constant complaints regarding its financial woes and the need for continued international monetary support, in 2018 the PA allocated 1.237 billion shekels – or over 7% of the entire PA budget – to fund its terror rewarding practice.
On Wednesday, PJ Media discovered that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) — a notorious left-wing smear organization — had silently removed Omar Mateen, the radical Islamic terrorist responsible for the deadliest Islamic terror attack since September 11, 2001, from its report documenting “Terror from the Right.” His name just disappeared.
Mateen, a 29-year-old security guard, declared allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS) and entered Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., on June 12, 2016. He killed 49 people and wounded 53 others, dying in a shoot-out with police.
So why did this ISIS terrorist end up on the SPLC’s list of “radical-right terrorist plots, conspiracies and racist rampages”? The SPLC’s synopsis of Mateen’s terror attack suggests an answer:
Mateen called 911 during the attack to pledge allegiance to ISIS and mentioned the Boston Marathon bombers. He also demanded that U.S. bombing of Syria and Iraq stop. His father initially told NBC News that his son had expressed outrage when he saw two men kissing in Miami. Others described Mateen as a violent, deeply conflicted man who had beaten his former wife and often frequented gay bars. The FBI interviewed Mateen in 2013 and 2014 but reportedly found no evidence that he was tied to terrorism.
