-Lurid Crime Tales-
Fourth victim of Tennessee truck stop stabbing released from hospital
[CBS17] The fourth victim in a stabbing spree that claimed the lives of three Knoxville truck stop workers has been released from the hospital, The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation confirmed Wednesday.

Officials announced the fourth victim, who sustained injuries during the attack, has been released from the hospital in a TBI Newsroom release posted Wednesday morning.

Idris Abdus-Salaam, 33, was shot and killed by a Knox County deputy after fatally stabbing three women and hospitalizing a fourth at a Pilot Travel Center on Strawberry Plains Pike at Interstate-40 in East Knox County early Tuesday.

TBI did not release a motive in the attack.

The three deceased victims were all employed at the Pilot Travel Center. They have been identified as:

Joyce Whaley, 57
Patricia Denise Nibbe, 51
Nettie R. Spencer, 41

The fourth victim was a customer at the truck stop and has not been identified.

The Knox County District Attorney’s Office announced following the shooting that local officials have agreed that the TBI will conduct all officer-involved shootings investigations related to Knox County and Knoxville law enforcement agencies.

Abdus-Salaam was a truck driver who lived in Durham. CBS 17 confirmed Abdus-Salaam was arrested in Wake County in April 2018 for eluding police.

He worked as a correctional officer with the North Carolina Department of Safety from August 2014 to May 2019.

When he left the department, he was an officer at Central Prison in Raleigh, DPS said.
WBIR adds:
Notes believed to be from the suspect who stabbed three truck stop employees to death Tuesday suggested he may not have been mentally well. A source close to the investigation showed WBIR pages of the notebook he said law enforcement recovered from Idris Abdus Salaam's truck.

The notebook the source said was found in the truck contains graphic writing believed to be from Abdus-Salaam.

It suggested he may not be mentally well.

Because of the graphic nature of the writing and because law enforcement has not yet confirmed or denied the existence of this notebook, WBIR is not sharing the full text.

A public records search showed a number of speeding violations on Abdus-Salaam's record. In 2018, he faced a criminal charge in Wake County, North Carolina for eluding arrest/fleeing.

TBI said Abdus-Salaam had no criminal record in Tennessee.

Tuesday, a TBI spokesperson confirmed two witnesses attempted to subdue him during the attack.

Afghanistan
15 civilians martyred and wounded as a result of US and internal forces brutality in Zabul and Uruzgan
[al-Emarah] In the wake of repeated US aggression and crimes of the Kabul administration The house of a civilian named Haji Abdul Kabir Aka was bombed last night in the Qahtzo area of the Khas Uruzgan district of Uruzgan province last night while there were no fighting and military mobilization in the said area.

In this horror, 5 women and 2 children were martyred and 7 other women and kiddies including the owner of the house Haji Abdul Kabir aka were maimed while the entire house was razed and more than 15 cattle were killed.

The crime occurred when there were no military incidents in the entire Uruzgan district last night.

In another crime, a funeral was also bombed in Markhunjak village of Faqirzo region in Arghandab district of Zabul province on Friday from which five civilians were martyred with many maimed and even the dead body was also shattered into pieces.

The committing of these crimes by US and internal forces is a clear violation of the agreement made with the Islamic Emirate hence the perpetrators will be responsible for its worse consequences.

#1  Radio Free Europe: Taliban Employs Modern Weapons In 'War of Words' March 16, 2011 By B. Ahmad Gwakh
.
"Wars today cannot be won without media. Media aims at the heart rather than the body, [and] if the heart is defeated, the battle is won."
This conclusion, in an interview published on the website Al-Emarah, is not goundbreaking. The importance of winning the "war of words," as Maiwandi describes it, to winning an actual war has long been understood. But consider the source. Maiwandi is the editor in chief of Al-Emarah, which is an official Taliban website.

Taliban, Govt Forces Engaged in 'Silent,' Unreported War: MoD
[ToloNews] The Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
continue their attacks on Afghan cops across the country, the Afghan Ministry of Defense said on Tuesday.

Sometimes, the Afghan cops counter-attack, said the MoD.

"Within the parameters of the active defense mode, these Taliban attacks were repelled and massive casualties were inflicted on the Taliban. The group suffered massive casualties in Arghandab district of Zabul province," said Rohullah Ahmadzai, a front man for the Afghan Ministry of Defense.

The Taliban in recent days has not said anything officially about their attacks on the Afghan forces, and Afghan security officials have said that the government forces are still in "active defense position."

But, the security experts say that the two sides are engaging in a ’silent war’ against each other.

"This situation has caused the Taliban to be more greedy for power, so they have expanded the war, nothing can deter the Taliban from war unless there is a change in the political situation in Kabul," said Assadullah Nadiom, a military expert in Kabul.

The Taliban resumed their attacks on the Afghan forces only a few days after the group signed a peace deal with the US in Doha on February 29.

But the Taliban’s front man Zabihullah Mujahid, who recently tweeted about the Taliban’s military activities, now tweets about other issues, including the delayed grinding of the peace processor, and about allegations that government forces are causing civilian casualties.

"We lost a number of our soldiers in Zabul and Takhar provinces, including the fall of a district to the Taliban in Badakhshan which was retaken by the security forces later," said Nazifa Zaki, a member of parliament.

This comes after eighteen months of negotiations in Doha, after which the United States and the Taliban officially signed a peace deal on February 29 intended to pave the way for the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan in exchange for a number of solid assurances by the Taliban to the US and its allies.

The US-Taliban deal initially caused hope among Afghans that this time there would be peace, but on the ground, the Taliban and the Afghan government forces are still fighting.

India-Pakistan
Tablighi Jamaat Leader in India, Maulana Saad Kandhlawi Arrested
Rolled over because it was posted late yesterday. Remember, guys, the cut-off is supposed to be 2:00 p.m. ET (EDT now) unless it is an active and ongoing terror attack, or possibly red revolution. So if your article is not as important as that, please click on the Tomorrow button when you post it.
[OpIndia] Delhi police trace Nizamuddin Markaz Chief Maulana Saad, will be interrogated after completion of the quarantine period
Which means, because the judiciary can't be bothered to venture out of their micro-palaces right now, warrants for the official interrogation will not be issued, and he'll experience the jovial nature of several agencies wishing to talk to him until he can be presented before a magistrate.
The Chief of Nizamuddin Markaz Maulana Saad Khandalvi has been traced by Delhi police to be living in the Zakir Nagar area and has put himself under quarantine.

Delhi police are planning to interrogate Maulana Saad but will conduct it only after completion of his quarantine period. According to his lawyers, he has put himself under self-quarantine and that's why he is unable to join the investigation now.

Maulana Saad is booked under The Epidemics Act 1897
Perhaps the first musalmaan to achieve the distinction of 'akin to Protozoa'.
for allowing religious congregation in the month of March despite repeated warnings from the center and the state government. He disregarded the guidelines issued by the government in the light of the Wuhan coronavirus epidemic which is spreading rapidly. Maulana Saad is wanted in an offence lodged by the Delhi Police under sections of the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897 and sections of the Indian Penal Code, for violating government directions on steps to be taken for avoiding the spread of Wuhan Coronavirus.
More charges, including money laundering and terrorism will follow.
As thousands of people from across the country and many from abroad attended the religious congregation, the event has now emerged as a hotspot for the maximum cases of coronavirus as over 1300 of the total number of Tabligh Jamaatis has been traced back to the event and their contacts. Nearly 25,000 people have been quarantined by the government of India.

Delhi Police crime branch has sent two notices to Saad under Section 91 of CrPC. The police have asked Maulana Saad to provide some documents. The second notice was sent after the first notice was found "unsatisfactory".

As Muhammad Saad remained untraceable, the Delhi police slapped a notice with the 36 questions at his farmhouse in Shamli near Delhi. After the first notice was found unsatisfactory, the Delhi police slapped the second issue.
The cheek.
Investigative agencies have started probing into the sources of funding and financial aid received by the conservative Islamist organization. The Delhi Police have also started probing into the finances of the organization which came under the national limelight after organising a congregation at its Delhi centre at Markaz Nizamuddin where 1700-3000 people are believed to have participated in the event, in flagrant violation of the restrictive orders.

#1  Since the 2005 election political power in Iraq has been fractured with no dependable party or reliable coalition extant. Predictably, in an obviously failed state, Al-Zurfi, seemingly an honorable individual, was unable to create a government that received the approval of the protestors, the Islamists, the old guard, or the Shiites. What lies ahead? Chaos, until the military resumes control.
