Troops enter Somalia to attack terrorists
In just over a month, a British woman and a French woman have been abducted from beach resorts in two separate incidents, dealing a major blow to Kenya’s tourism industry. On Thursday, gunmen seized two female Spanish aid workers.
“Kenya violated the territorial rights of Somalia by entering our holy land, but I assure you that they will return disappointed, God willing,” he said. “Mujahedeen fighters will force them to test the pain of the bullets.”
Flood barriers protect Bangkok from rising waters
BANGKOK — Barriers protecting Bangkok from Thailand’s worst floods in half a century held firm Sunday as the government said some water inundating provinces just north of the capital had begun receding.
That fueled hopes that Bangkok, a city of 9 million, could escape unharmed. But outside the capital, thousands of people remain displaced, and hungry residents are struggling to survive in half-submerged towns.
On Sunday, the military rescued terrified civilians from the rooftops of flooded buildings in the swamped city of Ayutthaya, one of the country’s hardest hit.
