Posted on Friday 26 March 2010 - 10:26
Muhyadin Ahmed Roble, AfricaNews reporter in Nairobi, Kenya

SNIPPET: “Kenya police have arrested three suspected terrorists as they were planning to fly to Somalia, police officials said. The three suspects who were on board a plane that is carrying aid to Somalia attempted to fly to Mogadishu and were arrested at Wilson airport on Thursday.

The suspects identified as Suleman Essa a Somali-American citizen, who is on a terror watch list; Canadian Ahmed Ali Hassan and Kenyan Muhammed Hussein Hash and police arrested them as they are on board a plane carries aid to Somalia, according to AP.

A local Capital fm quoted a police source as saying “The three suspects are being questioned to establish their activities in the country. They are being investigated over terrorism activities.”

“There are no specific charges against these three, but they are under investigation. We will let you know of the progress and if they will be charged in court,” the Radio source added. “

SNIPPET: “Kenyan police also detained other four suspects in the port town of Mombasa on Wednesday.

Last week, a Somali-Australian citizen, who was suspected of terrorism links, has escaped from Kenya police custody at a border police station.”

SNIPPET: “The police officers are suspected of having recieved cash from the suspect to release him. The man had $3,400 (Sh258,400) on him when he was seized just after crossing the Uganda border, Daily nation published.”

“Terror group claims Canadian recruit killed”

SNIPPET: “Toronto man Mohammed Elmi Ibrahim one of six Canadians of Somali origin believed to have joined militant Islamist faction in recent months”

Joe Friesen
From Thursday’s Globe and Mail
Published on Wednesday, Mar. 17, 2010 7:47PM EDT
Last updated on Thursday, Mar. 18, 2010 1:21AM EDT

SNIPPET: “Al-Shabab, a militant Islamist faction tied to al-Qaeda, released a video of a man described as Mohamed al-Muhajiri, which means one who travels with purpose, saying he has “succeeded” and that he was “calm rushing toward death.”

SNIPPET: “Al-Shabab, which controls much of southern Somalia, was recently placed on the list of banned terror groups by the Canadian government.”

SNIPPET: “His death could not be officially confirmed.”

SNIPPET: “The announcement of his death was posted on YouTube in a message that brought “glad tidings to the youth in Canada.” It advised them not to be saddened but to “march forth in the ranks of the honest mujahideen in Somalia.” It made no mention of when or how he died.”

“Toronto man with al-Qaeda ties ran extremist blog”
Stewart Bell, National Post
Published: Wednesday, March 24, 2010

More On This Story

SNIPPET: “TORONTO — A Toronto man whose reported death in Somalia has sparked fears that the militant Al-Shabab is recruiting Canadians was the author of a blog that posted the extremist propaganda of radical cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki.

The blog, called The Gardens of Paradise, features letters by two of the Toronto 18 terror suspects, an al-Qaeda propaganda video that calls fighting “obligatory” for Muslims and several of Al-Awlaki’s video and audio statements.

The author of the blog is identified only by his online name, “Shadows15,” but a posting on an extremist Internet forum indicates it was the blog of Mohamed Elmi Ibrahim and an official source confirmed that was correct.”

I've dropped the Canada ping list, and referred all the members to FReeper Clive who also has one.

Ping me anytime, but if you want a Canada ping, ping Clive. :-)

I forgot to tell you. I sent a PM to the list, but neglected to tell many others. Sorry, and yes, I can remind you, or just forward the ping to Clive. :-)

We had a deep freeze last night, -15c, but it really has been an early spring ...we usually still have snow, and instead my daffodils are coming up.

LOL, I better ping you on the gardening thread.
