#AceWorldNews – BRUSSELS – April 01 – Today in Brussels, at the meeting of European Union and African foreign ministers, foreign minister Urmas Paet said that the European Union must settle on the launch of the Central African Republic operation as soon as possible, in order to prevent the conflict from escalating.
“The current crisis situation in the Central African Republic explicitly shows the need for cooperation with international forces,” Paet said. “Failure to stop escalation of the conflict may result in a real threat of genocide developing in the Central African Republic,” he added.
Paet stated that Estonia recognises the work done so far by France and the African Union to help alleviate the situation in the country. “Estonia has chosen to contribute up to 55 members of their Defence Forces for the European Union’s military operation,” he said.
Foreign minister Urmas Paet expressed hope that under the leadership…
Here is a pungent bit of interfaith outreach from the Jamaʻat Ahl as-Sunnah lid-daʻwa wal-Jihād, the Party of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad, better known as Boko Haram (“Books bad!”). What is astonishing about this is how the mainstream media ignores this frankly and openly genocidal rhetoric, and instead focuses on the enormities of the Nigerian security forces — as if the secret to ending this jihad were just being gentler with these poor dears.

Malian military officials are claiming that Oumar Ould Hamaha, who has served as spokesman for the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa, has been killed during a series of French airstrikes in northern Mali. From Reuters:
Two Malian military sources said Hamaha – a former member of al Qaeda’s north African wing (AQIM) who later became a leader of Mali’s Movement for Unity and Jihad in the Islamic Maghreb (MUJAO) – had been killed by French air strikes. One of the sources said that Algerian militant Abou Walid Sahraoui, another former AQIM fighter who played a prominent role in MUJAO, had also been killed by strikes in the Tigharghar mountains in remote northeastern Mali.
Neither France’s defense ministry nor foreign ministry would confirm the death of Hamaha or Sahraoui.

Boko Haram, the Nigerian terrorist group with ties to al Qaeda groups in Africa, went on yet another rampage in northern Nigeria today. The Islamist terror group attacked a co-ed college in the town of Buni Yadi in Yobe state with the intent of killing as many students as possible. Several witnesses told The Daily Mail that Boko Haram fighters trapped students in buildings, which were set ablaze, and then brutally killed those who attempted to escape:
Garba, who teaches at a secondary school attached to the college, said the attackers first set ablaze the college administrative block, then moved to the hostels, where they locked students in and started firebombing the buildings.
At one hostel, he said: ‘Students were trying to climb out of the windows and they were slaughtered like sheep by the terrorists who slit their throats. Others who ran were gunned down.’
He said students who could not escape were burned alive
The attackers also reportedly hurled explosives into student residential buildings, sprayed gunfire into rooms and hacked a number students to death.
The failed prosecution of an alleged Somali pirate — and the fact that that failure could leave him living freely, and permanently, inside U.S. borders — is highlighting anew the risks of trying terror suspects in American courts.
