[Tolo News] In a shocking incident, a man killed six coppers in the southern Helmand ...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan... province early Thursday.
"The incident took place in the Mousa Qala district of the province, when the man was called at a check post by the officers. He rubbed out six coppers," the Provincial Governor's Spokesman Omar Zowak said.
"The man fled from the scene of the crime along with their weapons and a police vehicle," Zowak said.
"The police have started investigating the incident," he added.
No group including the Taliban has grabbed credit for the incident.
Previously, an incident similar to this had happened where a man killed seven coppers in the southern Kandahar province.
The incident took place when the man was invited for dinner by the officers.
In both cases it could have been planned, or it could have been the Afghan version of a sudden emotional outburst. They're prone to suddenly up and killing whoever annoyed them and all of their companions, 'tis said.
[An Nahar] Shells hit a United Nations ...an organization which on balance has done more bad than good, with the good not done well and the bad done thoroughly... base in Sudan's troubled South Kordofan state on Friday, killing one peacekeeper and wounding two more, a U.N. front man said.
Two shells struck a U.N. logistics base in South Kordofan's main city Kadugli, U.N. peacekeeping front man Kieran Dwyer told Agence La Belle France Presse. Rebels have been fighting Sudanese forces in the state for the past two years and the U.N. says there is a major humanitarian crisis there.
"One United Nations peacekeeper was killed in this shelling and two more injured. We condemn in the strongest terms this shelling," Dwyer said.
The U.N. was not able to immediately say who carried out the attack. But there has been fierce fighting between rebel fighters and government forces around Kadugli in recent weeks.

[Pak Daily Times] At least two persons were killed in separate incidents of firing in Quetta on Friday. According to media reports, the first incident took place in Kali Ismail area, where unknown men riding a bike opened fire on a guard, thus killing him on the spot. The victim was identified as Muhammad Umar. After the information, police and security forces reached the scene and shifted the body to Civil Hospital. In another incident, gunmen shot to death Deedar Ali in Faizabad area. Police said raids were being conducted to apprehend the culprits.
[Pak Daily Times] Police officials on Friday successfully averted a threat by having a 10-kilogram remote controlled explosive defused in Kishan Garh, Mattani. The bomb, planted along the roadside, was aimed at causing damage to the paramilitary forces who were also present in the area. The device after being spotted was defused by the Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) who reached the site immediately. "It was a powerful device which was planted either to hurt the police or the paramilitary forces," a police official told newsmen.
[Pak Daily Times] The Islamabad Inspector General of Police (IGP) informed the Supreme Court on Friday that the killer of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar had been incarcerated Maw! They're comin' to get me, Maw! in an injured condition. Zulfiqar was the prosecutor in the Benazir Bhutto ... 11th Prime Minister of Pakistain in two non-consecutive terms from 1988 until 1990 and 1993 until 1996. She was the daughter of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, founder of the Pakistain People's Party, who was murdered at the instigation of General Ayub Khan. She was murdered in her turn by person or persons unknown while campaigning in late 2007. Suspects include, to note just a few, Baitullah Mehsud, General Pervez Musharraf, the ISI, al-Qaeda in Pakistain, and her husband, Asif Ali Zardari, who shows remarkably little curiosity about who done her in... murder and Mumbai blast cases. The IGP told the three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistain Iftikhar Muhamamd Chaudhry that the killer was a member of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistain and was also behind a blast in the federal capital.

[Ynet] White House Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes said Thursday that 100-to-150 Syrians have died from Assad's use of chemical weapons, which has taken the US intelligence community nearly two months to confirm.
As a result, Rhodes said in a statement, President B.O. has decided to provide direct non-lethal assistance to Syria's Supreme Military Council.
If you 'sign on' to the WMD theory, you must ask the next question which is exactly where did it come from, where was it manufactured? WMD coming from the former Saddam regime in Iraq would obviously not be the desired answer.
For years the Israeli assessment (as was the NATO assessment) was that Syria possessed CBWs; then when I lived there in the late 90s Israel stated publicly they had made a big mistake all along (really!) and there were no CBWs. So which is it lol, Iraqs fabricated WMD evidance is not that long ago remember and I also wouldn't put it past bent Islamic believers to do it to their own, as investment, religious sacrifice dumb lamb thinking.
Anyway these are Jihadis we are all talking about arming. These are the same people that beheaded Lee Rigby in Woolwich London. These people and their beliefs are in the same vein as the mujahideen the CIA so perfectly setup to attack NY in 2001.
Does this not worry anyone?
Sorry but for now I am with Russias thinking on this one. If we need to dismantle Iran and Hezbollah then using Syria as the proxy is not the method and is totally spineless, despicable and nonsense.
Cret Hum, Don't give the Syrian rebels enough weapons to win, just enough to not lose too quickly. And don't include anything you cannot readily defend yourself against. Buy up some AK-47s and ammo for them.
"just enough to not lose too quickly" Ditto that. Rebels are a hodgepodge of people from all over the world. Better to draw the baddies there in a waisted effort. What are they fighting for. Those from England and Norway have got to be thinking for themselves about now. Poorly supplied and poorly directed. Easy to get in but I'd bet impossible to get out, alive.
How can Ben Rhodes be so certain of Syrian chemical weapons when they say they don't know zip about Benghazi, the IRS, Aye Pee, James Rossen, Fast and Furious, and the No Such Agency snooping? Like the public, they read about it in the newspapers or saw it on T.V.
