19 Arrested Over Murder of Two Women In Morocco

Authorities arrested four suspects connected to the murders of two young Scandinavian women, along with 15 other individuals potentially linked to the killings, according to a Monday statement from a security source.

The four main suspects are described as “lone wolves” who reportedly pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS) three days before the girls’ murders, according to Reuters, citing the Moroccan state 2M TV. Though the suspects pledged allegiance to ISIS before allegedly killing the women, authorities do not believe the foreign terrorist group aided the suspects in the attack, according to intelligence spokesman Boubker Sabik.

While the video of the suspects pledging allegiance to ISIS has not been verified by American press, Moroccan authorities deemed it authentic, according to CNN.

The two women — Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, of Denmark, and Maren Ueland, 28, of Norway — were hiking across the Atlas Mountains in Morocco at the time of their deaths.

Witnesses saw Jespersen and Ueland with three men at their hotel in Marrakesh prior to the deaths, CNN reported.

The women were found dead near the village of Imlil on Dec. 17, according to Reuters.

Harvey Weinstein arrested on rape, criminal sex act charges

Harvey Weinstein surrendered Friday to face rape and other charges from encounters with two women, wearing both handcuffs and a strained smile as officers led him from a police precinct to court.

“You sorry, Harvey?” came a shout from a throng of media as the once powerful movie mogul walked into a lower Manhattan courthouse, his head bowed with the cuffs behind his back. Asked “What can you say?” he mildly shook his head and softly said “No.”

It marked the first criminal case against Weinstein, coming seven months after the allegations destroyed his career and set off a national reckoning over sexual misconduct known as the #MeToo movement.

French ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy arrested over ‘receiving £42million in illegal campaign funds from Gaddafi’

He is to be questioned as part of a probe into suspected irregularities over his election campaign financing, according to an official in the French judiciary.

The probe related to alleged Libyan funding for Sarkozy’s 2007 campaign, Le Monde newspaper reported.

Sarkozy is said to have received the kickbacks in 2007 during the presidential election campaign that swept him to power for a single five-year term.

French law bans candidates from receiving cash payments above £6,300, but the massive donation is said to have been laundered through bank accounts in Panama and Switzerland.

Russian nuclear scientists arrested for ‘Bitcoin mining plot’

The suspects had tried to use one of Russia’s most powerful supercomputers to mine Bitcoins, media reports say.

The Federal Nuclear Centre in Sarov, western Russia, is a restricted area.

The centre’s press service said: “There has been an unsanctioned attempt to use computer facilities for private purposes including so-called mining.”

The supercomputer was not supposed to be connected to the internet – to prevent intrusion – and once the scientists attempted to do so, the nuclear centre’s security department was alerted. They were handed over to the Federal Security Service (FSB), the Russian news service Mash says.

Saudi Suspected of Trying to Join Qaeda Camp Is Arrested in Oklahoma

A Saudi immigrant suspected of once applying to join Al Qaeda’s most notorious training camp was arrested on a charge of visa fraud in Oklahoma, where he had been living for years with his family, federal law enforcement officials said on Tuesday.

The F.B.I. discovered the man, Naif Abdulaziz Alfallaj, only recently, when the authorities matched his fingerprints to those taken from a document captured in Afghanistan, the officials said. The document was an application for the Farooq camp, where four of the Sept. 11 hijackers trained.

Future Saudi king tightens grip on power with arrests including Prince Alwaleed


Prince Alwaleed, a nephew of the king and owner of investment firm Kingdom Holding, invests in firms such as Citigroup and Twitter. He was among 11 princes, four ministers and tens of former ministers detained, three senior officials told Reuters on Sunday.

The purge against the kingdom’s political and business elite also targeted the head of the National Guard, Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, who was detained and replaced as minister of the powerful National Guard by Prince Khaled bin Ayyaf.

The allegations against Prince Alwaleed include money laundering, bribery and extorting officials, one official told Reuters, while Prince Miteb is accused of embezzlement, hiring ghost employees and awarding contracts to his own companies including a $10 billion deal for walkie talkies and bulletproof military gear worth billions of Saudi riyals.

The allegations could not be independently verified and members of the families of those detained could not be reached.

Oakland County Woman Ordered To Jail After Refusing To Vaccinate Son 

PONTIAC (WWJ) – An Oakland County woman has been sentenced to seven days in jail after refusing to comply with an order to vaccinate her 9-year-old son.

The order was handed down in Oakland County Circuit Court Wednesday, at which time Judge Karen McDonald also announced that the boy would be vaccinated today.

In explaining her decision, McDonald pointed out that Rebecca Breedow of Ferndale, together with her attorney, signed an order in November, 2016, agreeing that the child would be vaccinated. McDonald said that there was never an appeal of that order, and that Breedow never asked to have the order set aside.
