Iraqi Shiite Muslims take part in a ceremony commemorating Ashura -- which marks …

Bomb attacks against pilgrims in central Iraq killed at least 18 people and wounded 48 on Monday, a day before the peak of the Shiite Ashura religious commemorations, a doctor and a police officer said. In the deadliest attack, a car bomb targeted Shiite pilgrims in the Neel area north of Hilla, which lies to the south of Baghdad, security officials said. "We received 16 bodies and 45 wounded," Dr Mohammed Ali of Hilla hospital told AFP, and a first lieutenant in the Hilla police confirmed that toll. The police officer also said that a car bomb exploded in the centre of Hilla near Shiite pilgrims, killing one person and wounding three. But a medical source in another hospital in Hilla said it too had received one body and 20 wounded people. And a roadside bomb against Shiite pilgrims in Latifiyah, 40 kilometres (25 miles) south of Baghdad, killed another person, a police source said. The Ashura commemoration ceremonies, which peak on Tuesday, mark the killing of Imam Hussein by armies of the caliph Yazid in 680 AD. Monday's attack comes with less than a month to go before US troops are to have completed their withdrawal from Iraq. Violence has declined in Iraq since its peak in 2006 and 2007, but attacks remain common. A total of 187 people were killed in November, according to official figures. 

 

At least 25 killed in explosions at bus station
From Newsit.gr | 18/3/2013
euro2day.gr - 26 minutes ago
At least 25 people were killed by five explosions that occurred today at a bus station in the city of Kano in northern Nigeria, an area where activities Islamist organization, Boca Haram.
The explosion destroyed many buses in the district of Kano Gary Sabo, inhabited mostly immigrants from the Christian south. Cops and soldiers have blocked the area.
So far no organization has claimed responsibility, but believed behind the bombings lies Boca Haram, which has recently launched repeated attacks on the city.
"I ran to save myself and I managed to get out after the second explosion. Several dead in collapsed. Behold, my clothes are soaked with blood," said a man who stood on the spot, showing a bloodstained shirt. "I saw three buses ablaze. One was filled with passengers and was preparing to leave the station," he said from the perspective of a local official who requested anonymity it.
Some time earlier, the Islamists holding hostages seven French tourists, members of the same family have released a video in which his father's family reads a text that threatened to continue the kidnappings and bombings if the authorities of Cameroon continue the arrests of their supporters.
In the videotape, delivered to journalists in Nigeria, it appears the French Moulin-Tang Fournier to appeal to the government of Cameroon to release the supporters of Boca Haram to the kidnappers to release him and his family. "I do not want to clash with Cameroon. However, conceive again if their men in Cameroon, will multiply the kidnappings and attacks" sounds like it says French hostage. The authenticity of the video is examined by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Perforated security measures in Boston - 7 bombs in the last meters of the marathon

04/16/2013 - 10:38


 
Tragic deficiencies in security measures highlights the terrorist attack in Boston during the top events in the city of Marathon. The U.S. has spent tens of billions (more than 120 billion dollars) to strengthen the security of the states after the Sept. 11 came across the same nightmare.
From the evidence so far, the double hit in Boston there are three dead, wounded calculated at 144 including 8 children, but the situation 17 wounded is extremely critical.


Investigations by the authorities, mainly the FBI focus on collecting data that will lead to perpetrators of the new tragedy. However, as of today there are voices that speak for inadequate safety measures. The questions of how the terrorists managed to reach the podium the official, the finish of the marathon and bomb, like a few meters before, and disperse in Boylston str 5 more bombs of the same power is inexorably and must answered.
Over 5 bombs before they explode neutralized according to the Wall Street Journal (the terrorists had placed and either not risked to activate either did not have) another explosion occurred after the assassination at the finish line of the marathon in the official library in Boston. The Mayor of the city attempted to disconnect the events, saying how the library building fire broke out from another cause, but their efforts are probably falling on deaf ears.


It was therefore a terrorist organization plan implemented under the noses of the security principles without being aware of anything in an event like the marathon that should have been activated all means to prevent terrorist attack. Metal detectors, control upon arrival spectators at the finish line and grandstand official (physical or sniffer dogs and equipment) could prevent the deadly blow. They seemed, however weak the authorities to provide, but also to deal with a terrorist attack.
Despite the activation of thousands of terrorists but police found space to act undisturbed inflicting death and sowing panic and insecurity throughout the U.S. and beyond.
 
"In a way this hit emulsifying the psyche" said uan Carlos Zarate Deputy National Security Advisor for George W. Bush, and now at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington as he told LA Times.
Since then it became a mere attack on military base in Texas in Ft. Hood, but "had to do with soldiers' notes. The Americans had a "collective social memory loss of how to attack you" continues.
    
"Now we have a" soft "target hit, something that we had not imagined but never seen it done by September 11, 2001. know who did it, you have to discover, but the sense of security that we have now destroyed, especially the way it happened in such an event. "
An official said that so far there is no connection with any group, and that the services were not informed about any outside interference.
But experts believe that this is a "locals" fanatics of al Qaeda, something I believe because of multiple simultaneous targets (the habit of the organization) and because none of them was related to government building (wanted to do harm to the citizens).
"I appreciate that this is αυτοριζοσπαστικοποιημένους Islamists in the region," said the official who wished to remain anonymous.


Experts have been amazed at the choice of target because although it had runners from around the world but did not have international symbols such as Times Square, the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, that was more of a local event therefore believe that those who did are in Boston.
Already the events in 2001 cost the Americans, security measures have changed their way of life (and ours) after eperepe to tolerate high police presence in their cities, increased security at airports, and granted many democratic freedoms since the authorities now can enter their personal data with our unique ease.

Explosives are every were around us. 

So we must use technology that finds explosives from long distance. DRAMS EWS do this. 

' .... The U.S. Army is seeking to rapidly deploy long distance chemical detection devices that are capable of detecting explosives hidden on people; ideally, the devices will be able to sense the presence of explosives and chemicals on people standing, walking, or running from as far away as 100 yards; the Army wants to be able to field these capabilities within a year, so it is only considering mature technologies that are ready to be implemented; the request for proposals will close on 6 May
The U.S. Army is seeking to rapidly deploy long distance chemical detection devices that are capable of detecting explosives hidden on people. Ideally, the devices will be able to sense the presence of explosives on people standing, walking, or running from
as far away as 100 yards. (!!!!)

The Army wants to be able to field these capabilities within a year, so it is only considering mature technologies that are ready to be implemented.
On Wednesday, the Army Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate at Fort Belvoir, Virginia issued a sources-sought notice specifically for hyper-spectral imaging technology designed for long distance explosives and chemical detection.
Devices should be capable of being mobile as the Army intends to mount them on extendable masts on vehicles.

 In addition, the sensors must be able to detect explosives with an accuracy of two centimeters on people approaching at twelve miles per hour at a range of 330 feet during daytime, night time, and poor weather situations.
The detection system should process data at a mobile workstation in a vehicle. That data would then be streamed via RF data link to a central processing and analysis station.

 The Army has chosen to pursue hyper-spectral sensor solutions over multi-spectral sensors due to their increased sensitivity and ability to detect more subtle variations.
Multi-spectral imagery relies on sensors that measure the amount of reflected energy within a specific set of bands within the electromagnetic spectrum, like visible greens and reds. In contrast, hyper-spectral sensors have the ability to measure reflected energy along a broader number of electromagnetic bands and more sensitive to fluctuations in reflected energy.
