German soldier who spent over a year posing as Syrian refugee arrested on suspicion of planning attack

An officer in the German army who spent more than a year posing as a Syrian refugee has been arrested on suspicion of planning a terror attack.

The 28-year-old lieutenant, who has not been named under German privacy laws, was living a double life, prosecutors said on Thursday, and

Police are believed to be working on the theory that the officer, who has a history of expressing anti-foreigner views, planned to carry out a “false flag” terror attack and blame it on refugees.

German paramedic is fired for drawing a Hitler moustache on a migrant being taken to hospital following a drug overdose

The incident happened at Christmas but only came to light this week when medical assistant Thomas Wagner posted a video and photos in a WhatsApp group chat he set up for the Johanitter care group in Frankfurt.

He sent a photo to his colleagues of a comatose man with the infamous facial hair drawn on in a blue biro alongside the caption: ‘Victim#1 – today: trendy beards.’

The murder that shocked Germany – and why its leaders are still in denial over migrant crisis

Soon after 11pm, a BMW police car with lights flashing races through a pretty park in the university city of Freiburg at the edge of Germany’s Black Forest.

Out jump four officers with torches who chase five young men stumbling under the trees, swigging vodka and shouting loudly in Arabic.

I watch as one aggressive drunk is handcuffed before being frogmarched to an ambulance and taken to hospital. The others show their identity papers and are then thrown out into a side street, where they lunge at a small woman wheeling her suitcase from the railway station nearby.

Meeting an organ trafficker who preys on Syrian refugees

There’s a glint of pride in Abu Jaafar’s eyes as he explains what he does for a living.

He used to work as a security guard in a pub but then he met a group which trades in organs. His job is to find people desperate enough to give up parts of their body for money, and the influx of refugees from Syria to Lebanon has created many opportunities.

“I do exploit people,” he says, though he points out that many could easily have died at home in Syria, and that giving up an organ is nothing by comparison to the horrors they have already experienced.

“I’m exploiting them,” he says, “and they’re benefitting.”

Number of Migrants Suspected of Crimes in Germany Rises by Over 50% in 2016

The number of migrants who are suspected of having committed crimes in Germany has increased by 52.7 percent in 2016, a report issued on Monday by the German Interior Ministry said.

BERLIN (Sputnik) — A total of 174,438 migrants are under investigation, which is over 8 percent of all people suspected of having committed crimes in Germany, according to the report.

Italy migrant crisis: Charities ‘colluding’ with smugglers

An Italian prosecutor says he has evidence some of the charities saving migrants in the Mediterranean Sea are colluding with people-smugglers.

Carmelo Zuccaro told La Stampa (in Italian) phone calls were being made from Libya to rescue vessels.

Organisations involved in rescue operations have rejected accusations of collusion, saying their only concern is to save lives.

Italy is the main route for migrants trying to reach Europe.

Almost 1,000 people are thought to have drowned in waters between Libya and Italy this year, according to the UN refugee agency.

Nearly 37,000 people have been rescued over the same period, a surge of more than 40% from last year, the figures say.

“We have evidence that there are direct contacts between certain NGOs [non-governmental organisations] and people traffickers in Libya,” Mr Zuccaro is quoted as saying in La Stampa.

Husband of Regina woman accused of human smuggling arrested along with another Canadian

Last Friday evening, as Mounties arrested a Saskatchewan woman as part of a human smuggling investigation, U.S. border patrol agents moved in on the woman’s husband, a Nigerian citizen and another Canadian on the North Dakota side of the border.

So far, authorities have released few details about how these individuals fell under suspicion and whether other arrests could follow. But a senior U.S. border official said Thursday the growing numbers of migrants seeking to jump the border has everyone on high alert.

“It’s on everybody’s radar,” said Alan Zeitvogel, acting division chief of operations for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Grand Forks, N.D.

On Wednesday, authorities announced that Michelle Omoruyi, 43, of Regina, was facing rare human smuggling charges after she was stopped by RCMP last Friday evening driving a vehicle near the border with nine foreign nationals from West Africa.

Swedish security police want Muslim accused of terrorism for Islamic centre fire to be deported

Sunni vs. Shia civil war in Malmo Sweden.

Sweden’s security police (Säpo) want the suspect in a terror trial related to a fire at a community centre in Malmö last year to be deported, as they consider him a security risk.

The 30-year-old Syrian man is accused of terror offences for a fire which caused smoke damage to a Shia Muslim community centre in October. In a detention hearing at the end of the man’s trial on

April 7th the judge ruled that there was no longer any need to keep him in custody, pending the final judgement in the case.

But the man’s freedom didn’t last long: security police Säpo detained him immediately afterwards. According to newspaper Sydsvenskan, it has now emerged that Säpo opened a case under Sweden’s Act on Foreign Immigration Control arguing that they believe there is evidence he has links with Isis and should therefore have his residence permit revoked.

Illegal crossings are increasing and feds still don’t have a plan

The number of illegal border crossings into Canada has drastically increased from January to March, official data released by the federal government on Wednesday reveals.

Let’s hope this finally spurs some government action on this brewing crisis.

In March there were 877 of what’s referred to as RCMP interceptions — when someone is caught crossing illegally at a spot that isn’t an official port of entry.

Poland follows Hungary’s footsteps in corralling illegal alien invaders

WARSAW — Poland is mulling setting up special camps where asylum seekers would be housed in containers and kept behind fences in the event of another migration crisis, according to the country’s interior minister.

“The thing is to be ready for such a situation in the form of places in which those waiting for deportation would be kept who may try to break the law,” Mariusz Błaszczak told Polish radio on Tuesday. “That’s all it entails. Besides, there are similar container camps in France and in Germany.”

It’s a very similar approach to one adopted by Hungary, which has come under fire from the EU for its harsh approach to asylum seekers.
