Four terror suspects killed by Kenya police in Malindi

first_imgKenyan police say they have killed four terror suspects described as most-wanted during a dawn raid on a safe house in the coastal town of Malindi.Their names had been released to the public in December.Matawa Muchangi, chief of police in the coastal town of Malindi, where the shoot-out happened, said one of the victims is Suleiman Mohammed Awadh, who was wanted for his alleged role in several Islamic extremist attacks, including the mass killings on a college campus in Garissa in April.Awahd had a $20,000 bounty on his head – and police said he may have been linked to attacks in the coastal town of Mpeketoni in 2014.He said: “The four were shot dead when they engaged our officers on a shoot-out and even threw grenades at them.”He said police recovered explosives, arms and mobile phones as well as maps detailing future targets for attack.The gun battle in Malindi broke out after the suspects refused to surrender and threw a grenade at officers.The maps recovered in the raid showed plans to attack a police station; a supermarket and a park in the popular tourism destination, according to Malindi police chief Matawa Muchangi, quoted in Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper.Police also said they found a letter requesting financial support, which they suspect was addressed to al-Shabab, which is linked to al-Qaeda.Three other suspects wounded in the exchange escaped and are still at large.Kenya has been attacked several times by Islamic extremists with ties to the Somali extremist group al-Shabaab, which opposes Kenya’s military involvement in Somalia.last_img read more

Liverpool could seal title at neutral venue

first_imgSoccer The game in which Liverpool could secure the Premier League title could be held at a neutral venue, says the national lead for football policing. Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts says up to six matches could be moved at the request of local police forces. They include the Merseyside derby as well as Manchester City v Liverpool. Roberts said discussions with the Premier League had been “positive” with a “shared focus on the priority of public health”. The Premier League is set to restart on June 17, subject to government approval. “We have reached a consensus that balances the needs of football, while also minimising the demand on policing,” said Roberts. “The majority of remaining matches will be played, at home and away as scheduled, with a small number of fixtures taking place at neutral venues, which, contrary to some reports, have yet to be agreed. “This plan will be kept continually under review to ensure public health and safety and a key part of this is for supporters to continue to respect the social distancing guidelines, and not to attend or gather outside the stadiums.” Liverpool, chasing their first title for 30 years, lead the Premier League table by 25 points with nine games remaining, and Jurgen Klopp’s side could win the title against local rivals Everton. Merseyside Police said that “in relation to crime and disorder” it has “no objections” to the game being played at Goodison Park, and that it would be “ready to provide whatever policing is required of us”. However, Assistant Chief Constable Rob Carden added: “Decisions in relation to public health risk are made by the Government and Public Health England. “Ultimately the final decision rests with the Safety Advisory Group, which is chaired by Liverpool City Council in line with the decisions made nationally in relation to sporting events.” The Premier League said its “ambition is to complete all of our remaining fixtures this season home and away, where possible”. It added: “We are working with our clubs to ensure risks are assessed and minimised, while co-operating with the police at a local and national level. “Discussions with the National Police Chiefs’ Council and UK Football Policing Unit have been positive and are continuing. We are prepared for all outcomes and have a neutral venue contingency.” – BBClast_img read more

first_imgEarlier today, we’ve covered the news from Brazil saying Everton could soon make a bid for Flamengo wonderkid Reinier. Globo Esporte claimed that on a trip to Europe, officials from the Brazilian side have met the Toffees, who ‘signalled’ they could soon offer €40m for the midfielder.Reinier is seen as one of the best prospects in Brazilian football, so the local media made some big noise about the news.And some interesting information comes from journalist Victor Gammaro. He says nothing has come to the player’s staff so far, since Everton have only spoken to the Flamengo officials.Embed from Getty ImagesIn football, things normally happen the other way around, with the agents speaking to the interested club and then delivering the offer to the selling side.In this case, we better wait and see what Reinier’s response to the offer would be. The 17-year-old has been linked to the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid, so perhaps a move to Goodison Park wasn’t part of his Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

Bayern is the only undefeated team in 2020

first_imgThe only undefeated team in Europe in 2020 is Bayern. At least until the Champions League final on Sunday against Paris Saint-Germain. 29 games in a row, the Bavarians do not know the loss – 28 wins and one draw. It came against Leipzig at the Allianz Arena in the Bundesliga. Bayern’s last loss dates from December 9 – 1: 2 against Borussia (Mönchengladbach), writes “Trud”. In this series, the team of Hansi Flick scored 95 goals and conceded 22 goals. If the Bavarians win the final, they will take 105 million euros from the prize fund and the sponsors of the Champions League. Due to the pandemic and the lack of fans, the two rivals will get 35 seats in the boxes. However, Bayern’s success does not mean a treble party. Munich City Hall bans celebrations. When PSG won the semi-final against Leipzig, police in Paris needed tear gas to disperse the fans. “The Bayern team and coach deserve the biggest compliment for their work,” said honorary president Franz Beckenbauer. “Paris Saint-Germain”. This team is much stronger than “Barcelona”. The French are a complete super team. Coach Thomas Tuchel proved in Germany that he is at the highest level. I am glad that “Bayern” is writing a new era in the history of the club. All the players impress me. And they have to prove it. For me, the final is 50 to 50. ”The Bavarian team has four players from the treble in 2013 – Manuel Neuer, Thomas Mueller, Jerome Boateng and David Alaba.last_img read more
