Narayanganj mosque blast: CID visits scene, collects evidence and records statements
[Dhaka Tribune] The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Tuesday visited the scene of the Fatullah mosque blast and collected evidence for further investigation.They also recorded the statements of around 10 to 12 people who witnessed the horrific incident.

Speaking to Dhaka Tribune, CID Inspector Babul Hossain, who is also the investigation officer (IO) of the case filed over the incident, said: "We are trying to find out what had actually happened that day. And for that reason, we have recorded the statements of around 10 to 12 people, including eyewitnesses, those who were maimed in the blast and local residents."

He said that CID would now sort the statements depending on their usefulness for the ongoing investigation.

When asked about the progress of the investigation, he said, "We have collected evidence from the blast scene."

"Investigation is underway. However,
a woman is only as old as she admits...
nothing can be said right now. You will have to wait a few more days," he told the media.

"We don't have a fixed deadline to finish the investigation. But we will be able to identify the reasons and the culprits responsible for this incident soon. Then we will work as per instructions of our seniors," the IO said.

Earlier on September 10, police handed over the Narayanganj mosque explosion case to the CID.

"The case is very complex in nature. We have consulted the higher authority of the police and decided to hand over the case to the CID to ensure a proper investigation," Narayanganj Superintendent of Police Md Jayedul Alam told Dhaka Tribune.

"We have instructed Fatullah cop shoppe to hand over all documents related to the earth-shattering kaboom to the CID officials," he added.

The blast took place in Baitus Salah Jame Mosque during Esha prayers on the night of September 4, claiming 31 lives until Tuesday night.

One of the injured returned home after treatment while the condition of five others is still critical

ANTIFA Firebugs Arrested for Stupidity; One Culprit Caught Asking Firefighter for Ride into Town
Some perp pics and an eye-opening screen grab at link. :-)
[QMNews] ANTIFA’s firebugs are getting caught for causing havoc, but primarily because of their own stupidity.

Reviewing some of the more outlandish capers gone awry, while our forests may still be in jeopardy, President Trump’s Nobel Peace Prize is certainly safe from competition from these fools.

On July 29th in Glide, Oregon, a Sutherlin man was arrested for starting fires in a forest according to KEZI.com.

Firefighters had arrived at an area northeast of Glide near McComas Creek and found him armed with a machete. The man wanted the firefighters to give him a ride into Glide, threatening to set more fires if they didn’t give him a lift.

Seriously.

Deputies arrived and identified him as Jedediah Fulton, 39, of Sutherlin. Authorities said Fulton admitted to setting multiple fires in the area. He reportedly told deputies he had been in the forest for about three hours and was trying to get help.

According to authorities, there were a total of six fires in the McComas Creek area, and the largest of them was about a quarter-acre in size.

Fulton was taken to the Douglas County Jail on charges of reckless burning, interfering with a firefighter and menacing.

Other ANTIFA firestarters were similarly intellectually challenged.

In Placer County, CA, 37-year-old Kevin Carle of Olympic Valley was arrested for allegedly starting a fire on August 8 near the 1800 block of North Lake Tahoe Boulevard.

That fire was quickly contained after a witness saw Carle attempting to start it, tried to extinguish it themselves and called it into the fire department who put it out.

The witness provided a description of Carle to authorities who quickly apprehended him. When deputies questioned Carle, they say they found him in possession of four lighters.

Deputies also learned Carle had three outstanding warrants for his arrest out of Inyo County.

On August 20th, authorities identified Guadalupe Molina-Pacheco, 30, as the suspect who allegedly set fire to a hillside outside Santa Paula.

They described him as homeless and said he was found near the property involved. Firefighters were able to contain the blaze, called the Harvest Fire, to about 3 acres with no property damage.

Molina-Pacheco was arrested on suspicion of a felony arson violation and on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.

Last week a Chico, CA transient man was arrested for setting a large clothing donation trailer in the parking lot of the Chico Marketplace on fire.

The mall security provided authorities with security camera recordings which revealed that the person caught on camera was wearing unique clothing and was easily identifiable.

Apparently, a man fitting the description appeared again at the location and security notified the Chico police department who quickly apprehended 24-year-old Vanya Hummel for arson.

Police said Hummel was confirmed to be on felony probation through Siskiyou County for assault with a deadly weapon.

Damage to the donation facility and the items inside was estimated to be between $10,000 and $20,000.

Finally, a man was attempting to start a fire on a woman’s property as she pulled into the driveway so she did what any smart gun-toting American woman would do in that same situation...she pulled out her gun, walked the man off her property to the asphalt at gunpoint, made him get down into the prone position on the ground and waited for the police to arrive.

The guy had warrants for his arrest to include assaulting a police officer.

#1  The fires are reportedly terminating just south of the Canadian border. An interesting phenomenon, or at least interesting to some.

#2  Maybe the Canucks manage their forests better. Or maybe the Canadian border lockdowns for general travel are still in place and the lightning/flaming debris/blowing sparks didn't have the appropriate paperwork.

Also, rumors that a curious number of these fires are all within 50 yards of a road. Unless lightning is restricted to a motor carrier permit...

#6  OK, the dumbasses get caught. But how many sizable fires have been set by Antifa firebugs who were smart or lucky enough to get away with it?

#7  Over at Truth about guns, they have a video from twitter of one walking down the street, stopping and starting a fire in Kelso, WA. I seriously wonder if Antifa HQ told the rioters to spread out and set as much on fire as possible.

#8  The fires are reportedly terminating just south of the Canadian border.

Or fire data is for the US only.

#9  Crossed my mind too.

There are fires in British Columbia, Vancouver air quality is diminished.
Posted by: swksvolFF || 09/16/2020 22:51 Comments || Top||

#10  Every fire set diminishes resources and preparedness. The most dangerous portion of a fire response is getting to the fire for a number of reasons, such as the inherent danger of driving a large heavy weighted vehicle through traffic often containing rubberneckers and tourists who are not paying attention, deployment into an uncontrolled traffic area, and initial setup which may not account for all natural and/or man-made hazards until safety officer(s) identify and adjust.

Next, fatigue and/or equipment wear and tear can create dangerous situations.

Finally, fatigued firefighters returning to base.

Wash, rinse, repeat.

Fatiguing your opponent is a history tested method.

*Vancouver and British Columbia has its own hotbeds of assholes as well. Interpret data on your own accord with appropriate rated bullshit filters.

#1  That's how it's done. You know most of them will end up forfeiting bail. Soros et al. are probably stuck between a rock and a hard spot on this one.

Now why oh why would homeless folks get involved? Maybe put one out on the street and see who pays them.

BLM, "peaceful protests" and Democrat pseudo-Justice warriors are nothing more than that 1% of every community in this nation - even York PA and Lancaster PA - that constitute the rock-bottom, borderline criminal (and actual criminal) sociopathic element.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Palestinians Fire Rockets Into Israel, Wounding 2, During White House Ceremony
[Al-Rooters via Newsmax] Palestinian militants fired rockets from Gaza into Israel on Tuesday, the Israeli military said, at same time as Israel and two Gulf Arab states signed normalization agreements at the White House in Washington.

Warning sirens sounded in the coastal cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Donald Trump met the foreign ministers of United Arab Emirates and Bahrain at the White House.

Israel's Magen David Adom ambulance service said paramedics treated two men for light injuries from flying glass in Ashdod, and four others suffered shock.

An Israeli military spokesman said the Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted one of two rockets fired from Gaza.

In Gaza, which is controlled by the Islamist militant group Hamas, dozens of Palestinians rallied outside a U.N. office to condemn the normalization deals shortly before the signing ceremony began.

"Palestine isn't for sale," protesters chanted.

Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said the Bahrain and UAE agreements would not bring Israel peace in the region.

"Peoples of the region will continue to deal with this occupation as their true enemy," he told Reuters, speaking from Turkey. Hamas did not claim responsibility for the rockets.

In Ramallah in the occupied West Bank there was a small, muted protest at which 200 people gathered in a central square.

Some carried a banner reading: "The UAE-Israeli normalization agreement is a reward for the state of occupation and for settlements, and is a stab in the back of Jerusalem and of Palestine."

The normalization agreements are the first signed between Israel and Arab states since the peace accords with Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994.

However, they breach what had been a long-standing Arab consensus that normalization of ties with Israel should only come after the creation of an independent Palestinian state in Gaza and the occupied West Bank with East Jerusalem as its capital. The Palestinians see that aspiration as badly damaged by the new agreements.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Suspected US drone strike kills foreign leaders of jihadist group in Syria
Follow-up to yesterday's story.
[ALMASDARNEWS] A suspected U.S. drone targeted a four-wheel drive vehicle carrying Tunisian and Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of...
i leaders of the Hurras al-Deen terrorist group in central Idlib on Monday.

According to reports, the vehicle was traveling though the al-Qusour neighborhood of Idlib, when it was struck by what is believed to be a ’Ninja’ drone.

The drone reportedly fired four missiles at the vehicle, destroying it completely and killing all of the people inside.

At least two foreign leaders, Sayyef al-Tunisi (Tunisian national) and Abu Hamza al-Yemeni (Yemeni national), were killed in the attack.

The U.S. Coalition has not commented on this latest attack, which is believed to have been carried out by their forces.

#5  I like the 4X Ninja switchblades.
One for the driver, one for the shotgun seat and two for the rear seats.
I would not want to trust a single Ninja switchblade to get all four occupants with a strike.
Is the R9X just a gravity bomb, IE no use of propellant?
I think even stand-off (glide) bombs don't necessarily need any propellant within the glide range (altitude times the glide ratio)?
At a thousand miles an hour the R9X obviously is not intended to be a glider.
