The individuals were arrested over the previous 48 hours in a case involving "undermining national unity, harming public order and inciting a gathering", on suspicion of belonging to the Movement for the Autonomy of Kabylie (MAK), authorities said in a statement.

[AlAhram] Swedish authorities arrested two women from Sweden suspected of committing war crimes in Syria, the prosecutors office and local media said Tuesday
Swedish authorities arrested two women from Sweden suspected of committing war crimes in Syria, the prosecutors office and local media said Tuesday, the first such arrests in the Scandinavian country.
According to a statement from the prosecutor's office , three women from the territories once controlled by the 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.... group arrived on Monday at the Stockholm airport. Two were arrested while a third one, who is not considered a suspect, was released after questioning.
Prosecutors Hanna Lemoine and Karolina Wieslander, in charge of the two cases, told Swedish news agency TT that the two arrested will be questioned further before the prosecution decides whether to formally charge them.
Swedish broadcaster SVT said one of the two women is also suspected of genocide and crimes against humanity.
TT said the Kurdish regional government in northeastern Syria _ where the Islamic State group had set up the headquarters of its self-styled caliphate before its collapse in 2017 _ decided in June to deport the women, who all had been part of IS and are Swedish citizens.
'We cannot or do not have the resources to bring them to justice,' Shiyar Ali, the Kurdish representative in the Nordic countries, told TT. 'Just the fact that they have been part of a terrorist organization is frightening, considering what IS has committed'.
Sweden's Foreign Minister Anne Linde told TT on Monday that Sweden, unlike other countries, had not brought back on its own initiative Swedish citizens who were part of IS in Syria.
'We have not repatriated the women,' Linde told TT. 'It is a different matter when the Kurdish self-government decides to expel the women. Then we have a responsibility just like everyone else to receive our citizens'.
In March, a woman was sentenced to three years in prison in Sweden for taking her 2-year-old son to Syria in 2014, to an area that was then controlled by IS. The woman had allegedly told the child's father that she and the boy were only going on a holiday to The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire... . However, a lie repeated often enough remains a lie... once in Turkey, the two crossed into Syria and IS-run territory.
The woman later managed to escape to Turkey where she was arrested with her son and two other children she had given birth to in the meantime, while living with an IS fighter from Tunisia. She was extradited from Turkey to Sweden.
In neighboring Norway, a 30-year-old Norwegian woman who was repatriated by Norway from a refugee camp in Syria because her son was sick, was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison by an Oslo court for participating in the Islamic State group.

[Just The News] A male Afghan refugee who was departing the Ramstein Air Base in Germany for the United States was detained Monday after it was discovered during pre-flight screening that he had blasting caps and other explosives materials in his carry-on luggage, three U.S. officials told Just the News. Items in the graphic are representative of the items found.
The man, who was born in the early 1990s and an Afghan citizen, was working as contractor for the U.S. government when he was evacuated, and officials believe the materials were related to his work and not terrorism, officials said.
Nonetheless, the man was placed on a restricted list and prevented from traveling to the U.S., according to a Transportation Security Administration summary of the incident obtained by Just the News. "Subject has been moved to a 'red list' and will not travel to the U.S." and U.S. air marshals were advised, the TSA memo stated.
Screeners, including a member of the German military assisting the U.S. at the Air Force base in Germany, found five blasting caps, one igniter switch, a "def cord" and one shock tube when the refugee was apprehended late Monday morning German time, according to officials and the TSA summary report.
[Breitbart] Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents rescued a group of migrants locked inside a railcar in Eagle Pass, Texas. Border Patrol officials in the Del Rio and Laredo Sectors report increases in the use of trains to smuggle migrants.
Union Pacific Railroad Police summoned Border Patrol agents to a freight yard in Eagle Pass, Texas, on September 1. In an all-too-common occurrence, Border Patrol agents removed 27 migrants hidden in multiple railcars. Agents found one migrant, hidden in a new car recently assembled in Mexico. Agents treated the migrant who became unresponsive from heat exhaustion.
In all, a total of 11 migrants were found hiding in a single rail car along with the unresponsive migrant. A more exhaustive search of the entire train led to the arrest of another 16 migrants found hiding in other freight cars. A seven-year-old boy was among the group of male and female migrants rescued from the simmering rail cars.
Temperatures in the area remain in the high 90’s creating higher temperatures in the sealed railroad cars.
The discovery of migrants hidden on freight trains is a near-daily occurrence. The migrants are found near the border and sometimes miles away during inspections by Border Patrol agents and local law enforcement officials. Migrants are increasingly finding unique and sometimes dangerous places to hide on the numerous freight trains leaving Eagle Pass bound for the interior of the United States.

[EN.ALGHADEERTV.NET] The Islamic Jihad ...created after many members of the Egyptian Moslem Brotherhood decided the organization was becoming too moderate. Operations were conducted out of Egypt until 1981 when the group was exiled after the assassination of President Anwar Sadat. They worked out of Gaza until they were exiled to Lebanon in 1987, where they clove tightly to Hezbollah. In 1989 they moved to Damascus, where they remain a subsidiary of Hezbollah... strongly has warned the Israeli regime against trying to punish other Paleostinian prisoners over the recent escape of six inmates from a maximum-security Israeli jail.
The Paleostinian resistance movement issued the warning in a statement on Tuesday after Paleostinian sources revealed that the regime was administering "collective punishment" to prisoners, including some of Jihad’s senior figures, after the jailbreak.
The prisoners, five of whom belong to the group, escaped the Gilbao Prison in the northern part of the occupied territories through an underground tunnel. The facility has earned notoriety as the Israeli version of the Guantanamo prison.
Despite conducting a thorough search for an entire day, the Israeli police service has failed so far to find any clues about the escapees’ current whereabouts.
Meanwhile, ...back at the pound, the little lost dog had finished eating the rat terrier... the Paleostinian Wafa news agency said the regime had begun taking out the embarrassment on other Paleostinian inmates through a number of measures.
It has transferred more than a dozen prisoners from Gilbao’s second ward to another Israeli prison and stopped allowing prisoners access to television. The regime has also taken five of the Islamic Jihad’s leaders to Gilbao’s interrogation center, and begun rummaging every nook and cranny throughout the prison.
The resistance group said it was monitoring the situation at Israeli prisons, advising Tel Aviv against taking "retaliatory measures" against the prisoners.
The movement said it would not leave its prisoners alone and noted that whatever "Israeli terrorist action" against them was to be met with its due response.
"The Israeli regime should know this that violations targeting the prisoners are our redline," it said, adding, "We are prepared to and capable of defending our prisoners and have several options at our disposal to do so."
