#1  The Romani, colloquially known as Roma, are an Indo-Aryan ethnic group, traditionally nomadic itinerants living mostly in Europe, and diaspora populations in the Americas. The Romani as a people originate from the northern Indian subcontinent, from the Rajasthan, Haryana, and Punjab regions of modern-day India. The Romani people are widely known in English by the exonym Gypsies, which is considered by many Romani people to be pejorative due to its connotations of illegality and irregularity as well as its historical use as a racial slur. In many other languages, regarding cognates of the word, such as French: Tzigane, Spanish: gitano, Italian: zingaro and Portuguese: cigano, this perception is either very small or non-existent. At the first World Romani Congress in 1971, it was unanimously voted to reject all exonyms for the Romani people, including Gypsy for its aforementioned negative and stereotypical connotations.

Two killed in bomb blast in central Somalia
[Garowe] Two people died and several others were maimed when an improvised bomb (IED) detonated at a restaurant in a cop shoppe in Somalia's central town of Baledweyne, local police confirmed on Saturday.

The attack was said to have occurred as senior government officials were staying at the restaurant in central Somalia.

"The blast hit the restaurant, killing two people, while several others sustained injuries," said a police officer who requested anonymity.

"The blast was huge," said a witness, adding that Feer-Feer district mayor was among the two killed in the attack.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the latest attack.

in strikes south of Marib, as the battle for the strategic city rages.

The Saudi-led military coalition supporting Yemen's government said Sunday it had killed at least 165 Houthi rebels in strikes south of Marib, as the battle for the strategic city rages.

The strikes "destroyed 10 military vehicles and killed more than 165" rebels in the past 24 hours in the Abdiya district, the coalition said in a statement cited by the official Saudi Press Agency.

The coalition has said it has killed around 1,000 Iran-backed rebels in strikes in the area in the past week, making daily announcements of at least dozens of rebel deaths.

The Houthi rarely comment on losses and the tolls could not be independently verified by AFP.

The Huthis began a major push to seize Marib, the internationally recognised government's last bastion in oil-rich northern Yemen, in February, and have renewed their offensive in recent weeks after a lull.

The Houthis said on Twitter Sunday that they had taken control of several fronts around Marib, including Abdiya, which lies about 100 kilometres (60 miles) south of the city.

Europe
Migrant found dead on boat in Spain's Canary Islands
[AlAhram] The body of a man was found dead on a boat carrying 44 other migrants colonists that arrived Sunday at Spain's Gran Canaria island after a week at sea, Spain's coastguard said.

A rescue operation was launched after the vessel was spotted as it neared Anfi del Mar beach on the south of the holiday island, a coastguard spokeswoman said.

The 44 migrants colonists who arrived alive received medical attention and were then taken to the nearby port of Arguineguin to be processed, she added.

All of the migrants colonists were males, many of them minors, from the Maghreb region of North Africa. The boat is believed to have departed from Morocco.

Separately, the coastguard recovered the body of another migrant off Spain's southern coast on Sunday, but others 16 were still missing.

The latest discovery brings to nine the number of bodies found after a boat carrying migrants colonists that had been spotted west of Spain's Cape Trafalgar sank on Thursday.

Two men were found alive on board the boat while a woman was rescued from the water.

Meanwhile,
...back at the pond, Gloria slowly backed away from the eight-foot bull frog. If the creature croaked she would surely be deafened...
the coastguard also rescued 16 vessels off the Balearic Isles in the Mediterranean on Sunday, pulling 203 people -- including eight women -- to safety, the government delegation in the archipelago said.

Spain is one of the major gateways for migrants colonists departing from North Africa and seeking a better life in Europe.

More than 27,000 migrants colonists arrived by sea in continental Spain and the Balearic and Canary Islands between January and the end of September, a 54 percent increase over the same period in 2020, according interior ministry figures.

The sea route to Spain is fraught with danger. The International Organization for Migration says at least 1,025 people have died in 2021, already "the deadliest year on the migratory route to Spain".

India-Pakistan
Bhata Dhurian encounter Trapped group in area for around 2 months — are Pak troops among them?
[GREATERKASHMIR] Police on Saturday said that the bad boy group trapped in Bhata Dhurian encounter had been there in the general area of Rajouri and Poonch for around two months with security grid trying to track their footprints.In an interaction with media person, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Rajouri-Poonch range, Vivek Gupta said that ongoing anti militancy operation, going on in Bhata Dhurian, was being carried out as per the practice and efforts were being made to neutralize the bad boys.

"The security grid was following the footprints of these bad boy group or groups," said DIG.

He said that the ongoing encounter in Bhata Dhurian was going on in dense forest cover and forces were conducting the operation cautiously keeping in view difficult topography.

Meanwhile,
...back at the buffalo wallow, Yellow Wolf clutched at his chest and fell from his horse...
officials said that tough terrain, ridges, dense forest of pine trees were making tough the anti militancy operation in Bhata Dhurian village area of Mendhar.

As aerial surveillance of operation site continued on Saturday the army also put into use heavy weaponry to eliminate bad boys, hiding in dense forests.

The operation in dense forest of Bhata Dhurian started on Thursday afternoon in which exchange of fire took place in evening in which two army personnel were killed.

Since Thursday, the intermittent exchange of fire took place multiple times in the area while the operation continued.

Officials said that the hilly terrain and dense forest cover in the area were making this operation too difficult. "There is dense pine tree forest in the area where encounter is going on and it is making this operation difficult," they added.

Besides, they said, tough terrains and forest ridges in the area were also adding to the degrees of difficulties in conducting this operation.

They added that through aerial vehicles, surveillance over encounter site was being made.

Battle at Poonch: Are Pak army soldiers fighting along side the terrorists

[OneIndia] Nine soldiers including two Junior Commissioned Officers have been martyred in the fighting with bully boyz since Monday. A deadly shootout has been on between the security forces and a group of bully boyz in the jungles of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
The battle has been on for 8 days and looking at the manner in which the events have turned out, officials suspect that some soldiers from the Pakistain Army could have infiltrated the jungles and are aiding the bully boyz in their fight.

Sources tell OneIndia that the battle has been so intense and has lasted a week because of the training these bully boyz have been imparted with. The role of the Pakistain Army in this operation cannot be ruled out, the source also said. The manner in which the battle is being fought clearly indicates that there are professionals involved in it and hence the role of the Pakistain Army cannot be ruled out an official also pointed out.

The battle continues despite a massive combing operation, intense shelling and a heavy cordon along the 9 kilometre stretch of the forests. On October 10, when the battle began, five soldiers including a JCO were martyred in the Dera Wali Gali area of Poonch close to the Line of Control.

The soldiers of the Indian Army came under intense fire when a group went searching for the bully boyz on Thursday. Two soldiers and two more including a JCO went missing. The Army managed to recover the bodies after an extremely tough operation.

While it is hard to confirm the presence of the Pakistain Army soldiers, officials say that the picture would become clear once all the bully boyz are gunned own. The Army's para commandos have managed to corner the bully boyz into one area and there is a likelihood of the operation getting over soon. The top priority for the Indian Army would be to ensure that there are no more casualties and hence the operation hence forth may drag a bit, but an official confirms that the end is near for the entire group of bully boyz involved in this operation.

Two non-locals shot dead, another injured in south Kashmir's Kulgam
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]

Two non-local labourers were killed and another injured after being fired upon by Lions of Islam in Wanpoh area of south Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
's Kulgam district on Sunday evening.

The attack comes a day after two non-locals were rubbed out in Srinagar and Pulwama. There has been a spike in the murders of non-locals in the valley of late. On October 5, Virendra Paswan, a non-local vendor from Bihar was rubbed out in Srinagar besides renowned Kashmiri Pandit chemist Makhan Lal Bindroo while Mohammad Shafi Lone, president of the local cab drivers' association in Naidkhai was killed in Shahgund Hajin area of Bandipora district.
One India adds:
Faced with killings of two more non-locals, the Jammu and Kashmir Police has asked all its district chiefs to gather non-resident labourers and bring them to the nearest security camps "immediately", officials said on Sunday.

The move comes after terrorists gunned down two labourers and critically wounded another one in Kulgam in South Kashmir on Sunday evening.

Turkish Air Force attacks Kurd Kommies in Iraq
Direct Translation via Google Translate. Edited.
[REGNUM] Planes belonging to the Turkish Air Force (Air Force) attacked Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) positions in northern Iraq. This was announced on Sunday, October 17, by Anadolu Ajansi with reference to the Turkish Ministry of National Defense.

The Turkish defense ministry said in a statement that the military operation, during which three militants were neutralized, was carried out in the Qandil region.

"Three terrorists ... were neutralized during the air operation," the message says.

Recall that the PKK is banned in Turkey, as members of the organization are fighting for the right to create their own autonomy within the state.

#1  This is interesting. A drone has a much different flight profile than a missile or artillery round - low & slow vs a fast, high arc. I'm guessing it was just a software upgrade. (feel free to snicker at the word 'just' when it comes to life-or-death systems)

Hamas terrorist group sentenced two Palestinians from Gaza and Rafah to death by hanging for collaborating with Israel
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]

The Times of Israel adds:
A Hamas, the well-beloved offspring of the Moslem Brotherhood, court ordered that the two men, from Khan Younis and Rafah in the southern Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
Strip, be hanged.

Reports did not say when the sentence will be carried out.

Two other men were sentenced to hard labor, also for collaborating with Israel.

The sentences came as a Paleostinian Authority court in the West Bank city of Bethlehem sentenced a man to 15 years in prison for attempting to sell land to Jewish Israelis.

Under Paleostinian Authority law, selling land to Jews can be a capital offense.

Hamas authorities have held public executions in the past of those it accuses of collaborating with Israel.

The terror group, which says it seeks to destroy Israel, has controlled Gaza since 2007, when it ousted the Fatah-dominated PA from the territory.

The PA, based in the West Bank, has long criticized rivals Hamas for carrying out executions without the approval of PA President the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas
...aka Abu Mazen, a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial. While no Yasser Arafat, he has his own brand of evil, just a little more lowercase....
. According to Paleostinian law, the PA president must approve the enforcement of any death sentence
...the barbaric practice of sentencing a murderer to be punished for as long as his/her/its victim is dead...
. Since 2006, Abbas has not given his official blessing for the implementation of a single execution.

According to B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights
...which are usually entirely different from personal liberty...
group, Hamas has sentenced 130 people to death since 2007 and has executed 25 people. With the two fresh sentences, Hamas has sentenced seven people to death this year, figures show.

The PA has not executed anyone since 2005, when five people were put to death.
