      Actually nothing really new. Although back then it was Cold War time and not post-9/11:

      • Former Swiss soldier of Syrian descent who'd fought against ISIS sentenced to suspended fine for violating neutrality laws

        The Swiss went out of their way not to punish the guy (who could've been sentenced to jail as well). Good on them!

        The Bundesgrenzschutz (Federal Customs Service) was a paramilitary organization with combattant status. The Bundespolizei (Federal Police) is a civilian agency, and it's major news that they'd arm up like that.

          • Plane hijacking isn’t much a thing anymore - likewise say, bank robbing. Play stupid games...

            What a solo guy like him had in mind I dunno, unless it was (assumption) a suicide by cops.

                  Sweden's prosecution authority said on Thursday it had charged three men with planning a terror attack in Sweden, warning the plot could have caused serious damage had it not been prevented.

                  The three are suspected of "obtaining and storing large amounts of chemicals and other equipment with the aim of killing and wounding other people," the prosecution authority said in a statement.

                  **The men, aged between 30 and 46, originally hail from Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. Their residency status in Sweden could not immediately be verified.

                  The Swedish government wants to tighten the laws applying to people who take part in or assist terrorist organizations. Here are five things to know about the law proposal and what it means.

                  The government has proposed introducing two new laws: one making it illegal to be participate in a terrorist organization, and one making it illegal to cooperate with these organizations.

                      The spectator is saying that six people have died and internet rumors are saying he wrote the names of neo-nazis on his magazines.

                      • I cannot for the life of me see how anyone could tell what was written on magazines/rifles and I'm putting that one down as the usual sort of stupid rumours that accompany such events. Likewise the suggestions that there are multiple gunmen when there is almost never multiple gunmen.

                          True, but the shooter was one of those 4/8Chan freaks so I could believe they would do something disgusting like that.

                          Rest in Peace to the innocent, this is just awful.

                          In other news, another Mosque was attacked with a third being unconfirmed:

                          Gunmen storm mosques in Christchurch, dozens feared dead in multiple shootings

                          • Police tell everyone in centre city to stay indoors
                          • All schools and council buildings are in lockdown

                          Gunmen have opened fire at mosques in Christchurch, with dozens feared killed and police urging residents to stay indoors.

                          A dead body has been seen lying near Al Noor Mosque in central Christchurch and a second gunman has been seen near Linwood Masjid mosque. One of the gunmen filmed as he shot victims.

                          There are reports of a third active shooting unfolding outside Christchurch Hospital.

                          The Guardian is reporting police as saying there is a bomb on Strickland Street in Christchurch.

                          EDIT:

                          The shooter livestreamed his homicides and there's clips all over twitter now. Entire families are shown.

                          Fuck this day.

                          Update: Just saw the archive link of the 8chan thread that the shooter started, people were cheering him on while he was murdering people. Fuck those people.

                          • Sick ass scumbag. There are reports that the shooter is Australian - sorry Aussies, but I'd rather believe it was one of yours than one of mine.

                            • The Latest: 2nd mosque shooting reported in New Zealand

                              CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand (AP) — The Latest on shootings at mosques in New Zealand (all times local): 3:45 p.m.
                              New Zealand media say a shooting has occurred in a second mosque in the city of Christchurch.

                              No details were immediately available.

                              Earlier Friday afternoon, police had urged people to stay indoors as authorities responded to a shooting at the Masjid Al Noor mosque.

                              A neighbor described mass casualties inside the mosque and said he saw the gunman flee.

                              This is a terrorist attack by Neo-Nazis.

                              No goddamn doubt about it.
