[11Alive] Beaumont Police and the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office worked together for a two-day joint operation targeting what officials called "sex buyers."
The 21 men arrested were soliciting sexual relations from both minors and adults, Beaumont Police said. Investigations are still ongoing, but additional charges are expected.
"Human trafficking is modern day slavery — the exploitation of men, women and children for forced labor or sex by a third party for profit or gain," Riley said in a statement. "A person doesn’t have to be transported across borders for trafficking to take place — it can occur anywhere."
The list of arrested Johns at the link includes American names, Hispanic names, and names from the Indian subcontinent, both Hindu and Moslem. So at least the customers are ecumenical. No prostitutes were named, so perhaps they were ecumenical, too.

[KhaamaPress] Officials say at least 12 individuals who were part of various criminal activities in different parts of the country, were arrested through security raids in the regions.
Interior Ministry tweeted, "12 suspects involved in different criminal cases were arrested during several separate raids of the ANP in Khost, Ghazni, Herat ...a venerable old Persian-speaking city in western Afghanistan, populated mostly by Tadjiks, which is why it's not as blood-soaked as areas controlled by Pashtuns... & Parwan provinces. The arrestees’ files have been referred for further investigation to the related departments"
On the other hand, afghan national police personnel carried out several reconnaissance operations around the country.

[Daily Mail] Afghan security forces have killed Abu Muhsin al-Masri, a senior al Qaeda leader who was on the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists list, Afghanistan's National Directorate of Security (NDS) said in a tweet late on Saturday.
The head of the U.S. National Counter-Terrorism Center, Chris Miller, confirmed al-Masri's death in a statement, saying his 'removal... from the battlefield is a major setback to a terrorist organization that is consistently experiencing strategic losses facilitated by the United States and its partners.' Al Qaeda's loss of al-Masri, Miller continued, 'highlights the diminishing effectiveness of the terrorist organization.'
Al-Masri has been charged in the United States with having provided material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, and conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals.
Al-Masri, believed to be al Qaeda's second-in-command, was killed during a special operation in Ghazni province, the NDS said. The al Qaeda operative, who also went by the name Husam Abd-al-Ra'uf, was an Egyptian national, according to the FBI.

[IsraelTimes] Jihadists took over town of Bir al-Abd, but were later then driven away, leaving behind explosives that have claimed the lives of women and kiddies.
More than a dozen civilians, including women and kiddies, were killed in Egypt’s restive northern Sinai Peninsula over the past two weeks from bombs laid down in their homes by terrorists, security and medical officials said Sunday.
Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems.... jihadists in July attacked several villages in the town of Bir al-Abd, forcing people to flee their homes. The military secured the villages in August and allowed residents to return to their homes a few weeks later, the officials said.
The terrorists, however, had laid booby traps in several houses that they took over. The explosive have killed at least 14 people, including six from the same family late on Saturday, officials said. The casualties included women and kiddies.
At least ten others have been maimed since October 12 and were taken to the town’s hospital for treatment, they said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
Bir al-Abd was the site of a horrific krazed killer attack on a mosque in 2017 that killed over 300 worshipers, some of them fathers praying with their young sons. The tribes of North Sinai have been heavily targeted by Islamists who view their veneration of Moslem saints and shrines as heretical, forcing a mass exodus of residents from the impoverished area that has long been underdeveloped by the government.
Violence and instability there intensified after the military overthrew the country’s Islamist president in 2013 amid nationwide protests against the Moslem Brüderbund group’s divisive ...politicians call things divisive when when the other side sez something they don't like. Their own statements are never divisive, they're principled... rule. Extremist snuffies have since carried out scores of attacks, mainly targeting security forces and minority Christians.
The conflict has largely taken place out of public view, with journalists and outside observers barred from the area. The conflict has so far not expanded into the southern end of the peninsula where popular Red Sea tourist resorts are located.
In February 2018, the military launched a massive operation in Sinai that also encompassed parts of the Nile Delta and deserts along the country’s western border with Libya. Since then, the pace of Islamic State attacks in Sinai’s north has diminished.

[IsraelTimes] 22-year-old charged with glorifying terrorism; several knives and other weapons found at his home, prosecutors say.
A young man who "liked" a gruesome Twitter picture showing French teacher Samuel Paty after he was murdered has been charged with glorifying terrorism, French authorities said Sunday.
Paty was attacked and killed on the street for showing his students cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in a class on free speech.
His killer, an 18-year-old Chechen refugee who had been living in La Belle France since he was a child, was rubbed out by police. Before his death, he posted a picture of the teacher’s severed head on Twitter.
The 22-year-old man charged on Sunday is also of Chechen origin, the public prosecutor in the central town of Blois, where he lives, said.
He was already on the radar of the authorities for having endorsed a massacre at the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo ...A lefty French satirical magazine, home of what may well be the majority if the active testicles left in Europe... that first published the Mohammed cartoons.
Several knives and other weapons were found at his home, prosecutor Frederic Chevallier.
The man denied being radicalized, Chevallier added.

Over in Houston, about a lifetime ago, I got hooked on a Monterrey station available OTA there. Viewing pleasure included, among other fascinating, exotic things whose import I didn't really grasp at the time, coverage of their first big narcobloqueos.

A woman confronts #antifa tonight as they blast loud music in a residential area. “This is all going on Twitter, make this bitch famous,” they respond. They call her “Karen” & shout “white privilege.” #PortlandRiotspic.twitter.com/mvh3ytMHVr
Given the fact the City Council has pulled the plug on any resemblance of Law and Order.
EXCEPT when a Peaceful Rioting/Looter is shot or run over trying damage private property or for injuring an innocent person. ALL while acting like a Fascist, while protesting Fascism.
Think, WHAT IF the Liberal-Socialist-Democrats (LSD) win?
What will life will be like in LSD run areas that have already allowed this? Will they confiscate Mid to upper class owner property and start a Social Redistribution of Wealth next?
I'd be making sure my Home Owner Insurance covered Civil Disturbances (riots) Put up a bunch of Elect Trump signs in the windows and move out of Nut-Ville. Then collect in a few days or weeks and MOVE Far away.
FACE IT AMERICA
Is it by accident the LSD's choose the whole West Coast, Upper US Mid-West/Canada area , Upper East Coast and several key Southern Border areas to focus on?
It is almost like a tactic called a pincer movement for a battle.

Skirmishes broke out between supporters and opponents of US President Donald Trump ...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US... as a Jews For Trump convoy of hundreds of cars draped with American flags and Trump 2020 banners rolled slowly through Manhattan and Brooklyn on Sunday afternoon.
New York City police said seven people were taken into custody in connection with physical confrontations in Times Square
The demonstration was planned as part pre-election rally for the Republican president and part protest against coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague) ...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it.

The caravan traveled from Coney Island to the Trump Tower in Manhattan before heading to a rally in a Brooklyn park. Cars in the procession blasted remix versions of the president’s speeches, festive Jewish music and soundtracked campaign slogans.
Videos shared on Twitter showed several protesters pelting the vehicles with eggs or stones, snatching flags and shouting insults.
New York City police said seven people were taken into custody in connection with physical confrontations in Times Square, but did not specify whether the suspects were the drivers or the protesters. Charges were pending Sunday night.
[DAILYTIMES.PK] Two bully boyz of the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban ...Arabic for students...
