“Infidels” killed in a theatre

In Uncategorized on April 5, 2012 at 07:43

The dead included the president of Somalia’s Olympic committee and the president of its football federation, according to Shafici Mohyadin, the federation’s secretary. “We were behind the theatre blast. We targeted the infidel ministers and legislators, and they were the casualties of today,” Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, the spokesperson for al-Shabab’s military operations, told the Reuters news agency. Abbas Abdi, a journalist in Mogadishu, told Al Jazeera that a suspected female suicide bomber had detonated explosives at a celebration for Somali TV where the Somali prime minister, and other government officials were present. The reopening of the theatre on March 19 had been hailed by the government as signalling a marked improvement in security in the war-ravaged Horn of Africa country. But al-Shabab rebels, who pulled out of the capital last August, have continued to strike targets in the heart of the coastal city using roadside bombs, mortar and suicide bombers.

Lord’s Resistance Army

In Uncategorized on March 23, 2012 at 07:03

The Lord’s Resistance Army, or Lord’s Resistance Movement, is a militant group operating in northern Uganda, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic[6] accused of widespread human rights violations, including murder, abduction, mutilation, and forcing children to participate in hostilities.[7][8]

Initially it was an outgrowth and continuation of the larger armed resistance movement waged by some of the Acholi people against a central Ugandan government which they felt marginalized them at the expense of southern Ugandan ethnic groups. Ideologically, the group is a syncretic mix of of African mysticism, Acholi nationalism, and Christian fundamentalism.[9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18] and claims to be establishing a theocratic state based on the Ten Commandments and local Acholi tradition.[19][20][21]

The group is led by Joseph Kony, who proclaims himself the spokesperson of God and a spirit medium, primarily of the Holy Spirit, which the group believes can represent itself in many manifestations.

Malawi women protest stripping attacks on streets over wearing trousers

Women in Malawi plan to protest in the streets Friday over recent beatings by street-vendor mobs who beat and stripped naked several women for wearing trousers or miniskirts instead of the south Africa country’s traditional dress.

Malawi had laws until 1994 under the autocratic rule of Hastings Banda that banned women from wearing short skirts and men having long hair or flared trousers, the BBC reported. It dropped the restrictions when multi-party democracy was introduced.

However, this week street vendors attacked several women in Lilongwe and commercial capital Blantyre over their dress, saying they were enforcing a government decree.

Seodi White, a lawyer and leading women’s rights activist, told the BBC that protesters would gather Friday ”in solidarity with the victims and to express our indignation at such barbaric treatment of mothers, wives and daughters of our country”.
