Afghanistan
‘Five Army Soldiers Killed’ in Kunduz Attack: MoD
[ToloNews] At least five soldiers were killed in a Taliban
...Arabic for students...
attack on a security checkpoint in northern Kunduz province on Sunday night, the Ministry of Defense said on Monday.

The Taliban attacked a security checkpoint outside of Kunduz city and the festivities continued until 4:30 am Monday morning, local officials said.

However,
some people cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go...
local officials did not provide further details about the attack.

Other sources said that at least 14 soldiers were killed in the attack and two others were maimed.

The Taliban also clashed with the reinforcement forces in the area, sources added.

The Taliban has grabbed credit for the attack.
An Nahar adds:
The attack happened in Shora Khak area of volatile Kunduz province on Sunday, days after US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said an agreement with the Taliban was in place for a "conditions-based" seven-day reduction in violence.

"Unfortunately, five army soldiers were martyred and three wounded," the Afghan defence ministry said in a statement, adding that Taliban fighters also suffered casualties.

Enhamuddin Rahmani, a spokesman for Kunduz police, told AFP the fighting lasted several hours and both sides suffered casualties.

The Taliban's official spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed on Twitter that the militants had killed 19 security forces in the attack.

It is not clear when the reduction in violence will begin. A Taliban official has said it was imminent, and a US official said Friday it would begin "really soon".

Europe
Norway Mosque Shooter Charged with Murder, Terrorism
[AnNahar] A 22-year-old Norwegian man accused of killing his step-sister before opening fire in a mosque near Oslo in August was charged with murder and terrorism on Monday, prosecutors said.

Philip Manshaus was arrested after opening fire in the al-Noor mosque in the affluent Oslo suburb of Baerum on August 10 last year before he was overpowered by a 65-year-old man.

Just three worshipers were in the mosque at the time, and there were no serious injuries.

The body of his 17-year-old step-sister was later found in their home. Adopted by his father's girlfriend, Johanne Zhangjia Ihle-Hansen was killed by four bullets, police said. Police have previously said they believed the motive for the murder to be racist, saying he killed her because she was of Asian origin.

The charge sheet filed with the Asker and Baerum district court on Monday contained two charges. One charge of murder for having killed his stepsister, and one charge of a "terrorist act" by attempting to kill with the "intention of creating severe fear in a population."

The trial is expected to begin on May 7.

Manshaus has previously admitted to the actions but has rejected the charges of murder and terrorism, claiming that it was a "kind of self-defense."

On September 9, at a court hearing to extend his detention in jug, Manshaus raised his arm in a Nazi salute to the assembled media.

Manshaus lawyer, Unni Fries, told broadcaster NRK that the charges did not come as a surprise.

"We are going to take a closer look at this and work towards the trial," Fried said.

#1  What is it with "nationalists" adoring Hitler?
The guy was an addicted to drugs and was always betting his own country future. In the end destroyed his own country. That does not seems much nationalist to me...
