Gunmen on Sunday stormed the St. Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra state, east of Nigeria.
A witness told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday that the gunmen went into the church during the 5:45 a.m. mass and identified a particular man and shot him.
He said that they later went on rampage and shot at the remaining over 100 worshippers.
Scores of people were killed in the church while other critically injured worshippers died on the way to the Nnamdi Azikiwe Teaching Hospital, Nnewi.
Members of “Antifa” initially showed up the peaceful rally, but quickly made their way to the Patriot Prayer “Freedom March” several blocks away. The two groups quickly clashed. Several violent fights were witnessed by KATU News crews throughout the area, but as opposed to previous protests, there was little to no police presence breaking up the groups.
Clashes between Antifa and Patriot Prayer moved toward the peaceful rally further north on the waterfront. Organizers quickly moved across the street to avoid any conflict.
“We are not a hate group, we are people who love, this one, and we are people who exercise their right to free speech, this is the way we do this here,” said Romeo Sosa, a member of VOZ Workers Rights Education Project.
While they were forced to move to avoid conflict, organizers with the peaceful rally say their message of denouncing hate speech was not lost.
Venezuelan authorities have suppressed a military rebellion near the central city of Valencia, a ruling official said on Sunday, less than two days after President Nicolas Maduro formed a legislative superbody internationally condemned as a power grab.
Socialist Party deputy Diosdado Cabello made the announcement shortly after the release of a video showing a group of men in military uniform announcing a rebellion and calling for a broad uprising. But the rest of the country appeared to be calm, with the capital Caracas waking to a quiet Sunday morning.
One witness in the area of a military base in the town of Naguanagua reported hearing gunshots before dawn, but Cabello said the situation had been brought under control. Officials said the rebels, whom they described as "terrorists," were trying to steal weapons and that seven people were detained after the attack on the base.
The Defense Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But government allies were quick to denounce the attack as a right-wing plot aimed at bringing down the "Bolivarian revolution" started nearly 20 years ago by the late Hugo Chavez and carried on by his protege Maduro.
"These attacks, planned by delirious minds in Miami, only strengthen the morale of our armed forces and the Bolivarian people," tweeted Socialist Party official Elias Jaua.
On Friday, government allies inaugurated a new legislative superbody that the Venezuelan opposition and leaders around the world denounced as a power grab by Maduro.
In Sunday's video, a man who identified himself as Juan Carlos Caguaripano, a former National Guard captain, said: "We demand the immediate formation of a transition government." He was flanked by about a dozen men in military uniforms.
"This is not a coup d'etat," he said. "This is a civic and military action to re-establish constitutional order. But more than that, it is to save the country from total destruction."

In this clip, taken in Mannheim, African refugees brag that they are "picking all the German girls" and that they "control them" while walking walking through the city with four obese women.
The video was posted on Social media by a refugee himself.
They put special emphasis on the claim that they are "now the Kings" there, that they "love this place" and are spreading the "African way of life".
A heatwave that has left Italy sweltering in record temperatures sparked wildfires Thursday which claimed the life of one elderly woman and forced the closure of a major highway. The 79-year-old woman was found dead in a field next to her home in Sant'Omero in the central region of Abruzzo, having apparently been overcome by flames that engulfed two hectares of surrounding farmland. A section of the Via Aurelia coastal motorway that runs northwards from Rome to the Riviera had to be closed for several hours because of a major fire near Grosseto in Tuscany.
If you are curious just how bad London has gotten under the Muslim Mayor, take a look at these Indian citizens being brutally attacked by a group of Muslim migrants in an alley in what is now described as a no go zone for British police officers.
As thousands of illegal immigrants, mostly from Africa, continue to arrive to Italian shores, tensions are mounting over what to do with them.
To take just one example, in the Sicilian coastal town of Porto Empedocle, 9,480 immigrants have already arrived since the first of the year, along with 31 corpses of those who died trying to make the crossing from North Africa.
At the core of the problem is a north-south divide, with the southern regions like Sicily, Puglia, and Campania forced to bear the brunt of the waves of asylum seekers and the north refusing to offer any substantive assistance.
Pending a June 15 EU Council meeting in Brussels to once again debate the role of the EU in a coordinated immigration strategy, Italy is left on its own to deal with a situation that is already stretching its capabilities.
If you are curious just how much cultural enrichment these Muslim migrants are bringing to the United Kingdom, take a gander at this video and you'll see just how the youth of the UK are being affected by the mass migration of Muslim migrants who could care less about the citizenry of the country their invading.
In Athens, Greece, Syrian refugees protested outside the German Embassy Wednesday, calling on authorities to quickly review their applications for passage to Germany and other European countries. This is 41-year-old mother Malak Rahmoun, who fled Aleppo years ago and has been trapped in Greece for two years hoping to reunite with her husband and son in Germany.
Malak Rahmoun: "Enough waiting. Enough suffering. I am suffering from not two years here in Greece; I am suffering from five, seven years, from Aleppo until now. Stop suffering, my children want. I want my children go to school."
Meanwhile, Italy’s Coast Guard on Wednesday seized a ship operated by a German charity, accusing its crew of aiding illegal immigration from Libya to Europe. On its website, the group Jugend Rettet says it saved more than 6,500 migrants last year whose boats were in distress and who otherwise might have drowned in the Mediterranean.
Chinese authorities were apparently gearing up for war against Islamists using a mosque in the Western portion of the country that is currently a cesspool of Muslim extremism.
According to Chinese officials there were talks of a Civil War in order to seize the province from China and converted into a Muslim controlled country. Chinese authorities quickly raided the mosque and ended up finding a plethora of homemade weaponry forged by the Muslim extremists
A Palestinian teenager stabbed an Israeli man, critically wounding him, at a supermarket in the central Israeli city of Yavneh on Wednesday morning, police said. After initially saying the motive was unclear, police eventually said the stabbing appeared to have been a terror attack.
The stabber was captured by civilians, who held him down until police arrived. He was later identified by the Shin Bet security service as Ismail Ibrahim Ismail Abu Aram, 19, from the West Bank village of Yatta.
Graphic security camera footage from inside the Shufersal supermarket in Yavneh, south of Tel Aviv, showed the moments leading up to the attack and the stabbing itself.
The 43-year-old victim, who worked at the supermarket, was stocking shelves with paper towels on one of the aisles, paying no mind to the teenager who walked past him.
Suddenly the attacker turned around, took out a knife and began viciously stabbing the supermarket employee in the upper body. Though injured, the victim fought off the terrorist and tried to run away from him, blocking the aisle after him with a handcart.
The victim could then be seen running to a nearby aisle, and out of frame, with the assailant chasing him.
He suffered stab wounds to the chest, neck and head and was in unstable condition, according to medical officials.
ISIS fighter of British origin threatens Trump and claims ISIS has conquest plans for Constantinople and Rome. He is talking about the Roman Empire. After the collapse of the Roman Empire it split into two, Western and Eastern. Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium) fell to the Turks in 1453.
Turkish Sultans titles included,

A video released on social media shows Turkish soldiers beating a group of young Syrian refugees who were caught trying to enter Turkey.
The Turkish soldiers are seen beating the refugees and asking them: “Why do you come to Turkey?” “What is in Turkey for you?” “Where are you going to go in Turkey? Are you going to go to İstanbul?” “Are you going to come Turkey again?” and “Why did you help refugees cross the border? Are you refugee smugglers?”
The undated video taken by a Turkish soldier who also beat young Syrians ends with a soldier saying: “We will indeed see you at the outpost,” a clear threat that they will treat them worse at a military outpost.
Young Syrians are seen collecting cigarette butts on the ground, a punishment usually reserved for Turkish soldiers, while being beaten by the soldiers.
@MuratzenciTR, who shared the video on Twitter, said: “When you watch this without sound, you would think that [Bashar Al] Assad’s soldiers are torturing the Syrians. It is a shock when you watch it with sound…”
The soldiers have been detained and an investigation launched into them due to “unacceptable behavior,” said the Turkish military in a written statement on Sunday afternoon, confirming the video.
According to the statement the young Syrians were detained as they were trying to enter Turkey illegally at 11:00 on July 28, and were afterwards deported.
Two of Venezuela’s leading opposition figures were taken away from their homes by the country’s intelligence service early Tuesday morning, according to their families.
Family members posted videos of opposition leaders Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma being detained and claimed that Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro should be held responsible for whatever happened to them.
“12:27 am: The time when the dictatorship kidnaps Leopoldo at my house,” Lopez’s wife, Lilian Tintori, tweeted in Spanish.
“They just took Leopoldo from the house. We do not know where he is or where he is being taken. Maduro is responsible if something happens to him,” she wrote in a separate tweet.
Tintori also shared a video that appeared to show Lopez being pushed into a vehicle marked “SEBIN,” an abbreviation for Venezuela’s intelligence agency.
Ledezma’s daughter, Vanessa Ledezma, shared similar footage on Tuesday morning, writing in Spanish: “I hold Nicolas Maduro responsible for my father’s life … the sebin just dragged him away, we don’t know where he is. Let the whole world know!”
Deadly clashes between protesters and police marred voting on Sunday, as Venezuelans cast ballots on a controversial measure that could mark a turning point for their country.
The election will allow President Nicolás Maduro to replace Venezuela's current legislative body -- the National Assembly -- with a new institution called the Constituent Assembly that will have the power to rewrite the constitution.
The voting follows weeks of violent street protests in which many people have been killed or injured. On Sunday the death toll rose sharply with at least six people -- including two teenagers -- killed at protests and a National Guard officer also reported dead by the Attorney General's Office.
The death toll from the unrest ongoing since early April is 125, according to a statement from the Venezuelan attorney general's office. That number does not include at least two of Sunday's deaths, in which the reasons for the killings are under investigation.
Polls were set to close at 7 p.m. ET, after officials extended voting by one hour.
Maduro, in a 2½ minute message posted to Twitter, called the vote a historic moment.
"This has been and is a successful day with great participation," he said. "... Today is a day of victory."
International reaction was harsh, with many nations, including the United States, condemning the election.
Armed demonstrators faced off, launching fireworks and firing guns in central Caracas some ten blocks from the Government Palace, Saturday, as protests against President Nicolas Maduro continue to rock the Venezuelan capital.
Pro-Maduro protesters and anti-government demonstrators clashed in the area, attempting to take control of the neighbourhood. Earlier in the day protesters were reportedly seen throwing Molotov cocktails at the National Guard from a block of flats in the vicinity. Pro-Maduro protesters could be seen removing barricades that anti-government activists had set up earlier in the day.
There are few things less ambiguous than a call to kill another person. Except, apparently, at The Washington Post.
On July 21, imams Ammar Shahin of the Islamic Center of Davis (ICD) and Mahmoud Harmoush of Islamic Center of Riverside gave speeches calling for the destruction of the Jews in the context of the recent violence centered around the Temple Mount. Both imams called on Allah “to liberate Al Aqsa from the Jews.”
The speeches were brought to light by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which picked them up from the YouTube channels of both Islamic centers.
After exposure by MEMRI, news of one or both of the offending sermons were picked up The Jerusalem Post, the National Review, The Times of Israel, the Jewish Journal, the Free Beacon and various pro-Israel blogs, including Legal Insurrection and The Tower. There appears to be little or no national coverage given during the week to the sermons. (The local Davis Enterprise reported on it in middle of last week, but most national news organizations didn’t touch the story until Friday.)

Australian security services have foiled a terrorist plot to bring down an aeroplane with a bomb, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has announced.
Police arrested four people in a series of raids conducted at homes around Sydney.
Turnbull said the suspects were detained “to disrupt and prevent plans to undertake terrorist attacks in Australia”.
It remains unclear as to when and where the attack had been due to be carried out, but it is believed that an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) was the intended weapon.
Members of the Australian Federal Police, New South Wales Police and Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) conducted the raids after receiving information about such a device.
“Four men have been taken into custody and are assisting police with their enquiries,” a police statement said.
Turnbull said he had been briefed on the unfolding situation by security organisation heads.
“My number one priority, and that of my government, is the safety and security of all Australians, and the public should be reassured that our security and intelligence agencies are working tirelessly to keep us safe,” the leader said in a statement.
Deadly protests rocked Venezuela on Sunday as voters broadly boycotted an election for a constitutional super-body that unpopular leftist President Nicolas Maduro vowed would begin a "new era of combat" in the crisis-stricken nation.
Anti-Maduro activists wearing hoods or masks erected barricades on roads, and scuffles broke out with security forces who moved in quickly to disperse demonstrators who denounced the election as a naked power grab by the president.
Authorities said 10 people were killed in the confrontations, which made Sunday one of the deadliest days since massive protests started in early April.
Maduro, widely disliked for overseeing an unraveling of Venezuela's economy, has promised the assembly will bring peace by way of a new constitution after four months of opposition protests in which more than 120 people have been killed.
Opposition parties sat out the election, saying it was rigged to increase Maduro's powers, a view shared by countries including Spain, Canada, Colombia and the United States.
The Trump administration is considering imposing U.S. sanctions on Venezuela's vital oil sector in response to Sunday's election, U.S. officials said.
Potential U.S. sanctions on sales of light crude to Venezuela's oil company PDVSA would hamper its already weak refining network.
Caracas was largely shut down, streets were deserted and polling stations were mostly empty, dealing a blow to the legitimacy of the vote. A bomb exploded in the capital and wounded seven police officers in what could be the spread of more aggressive tactics.
Critics say the assembly will allow Maduro to dissolve the opposition-run Congress, delay future elections and rewrite electoral rules to prevent the socialists from being voted out of power. The opposition vowed to hold protests again on Monday and to keep pressuring Maduro's cash-strapped government until he's forced from office.
"Even if they win today, this won't last long," said opposition supporter Berta Hernandez, a 60-year-old doctor in a wealthier Caracas district. "I'll continue on the streets because, not long from now, this will come to an end."

European officials estimate that about 300 women from the United States and Europe have joined the various jihadist groups fighting in Syria’s civil war. Women from countries including Norway, Canada, the United Kingdom, Austria, France, the Netherlands, and the US are known to have joined the Islamic State. In October, three schoolgirls from Denver, Colorado attempted to travel to Syria to join the jihadist group in Syria, but were stopped in Germany and sent back home. But others have completed the journey, and stayed.
On Dec. 2, a female claiming to live within the Islamic State posted to her Twitter account ways women can help in jihad without fighting.
In response to a question from a user asking how she could “defend Islam and the oppressed there,” Muhajirah Witness, formerly known on Twitter as Muhajirah Amatullah, explained: “So much U can encourage, financially equip a Mujahid, lo0k [sic] after his family, refute the liars etc & make genuine effort 4 Hijrah.” Hijra is the Arabic word for migration. The owner of the Twitter account changed her name to Muhajirah Witness following the exposure and arrest of the man behind the well-known pro-Islamic State Twitter account Shami Witness.
In the past, Muhajirah Witness has tweeted about life in Raqqah under the Islamic State, boasting about the domestic role women play in everyday life. She has also tweeted about slavery under the caliphate, claiming that Islamic rulings permit men, women, and children to be slaves if they are prisoners of war.
Despite Muhajirah Witness’ tweets trying to describe some semblance of a normal life in Raqqah, her statements conflict with the Islamic State’s own description of how its fighters treat women.
On Dec. 3, the Islamic State’s “Research and Fatwa Department” published a pamphlet detailing how its fighters are to treat female slaves when they are captured. The pamphlet was recently translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
The 27 question-and-answer pamphlet explains that Islamic State militants are allowed to have sex with female captives, can capture unbelieving women, and can perform darb ta’deeb, or “disciplinary beatings.” The pamphlet makes distinctions between the types of beatings that are allowed (it claims “beating for the purpose of achieving gratification” is not permitted) and discusses when pre-pubescent women are “fit for intercourse.”
For example, one of the questions translated reads: “Question 13: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female slave who has not reached puberty?” The Islamic State answers: “It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse; however, if she is not fit for intercourse, then it is enough to enjoy her without intercourse.”
Another question addresses how female slaves are expected to dress and cover parts of the body; “Question 14: What private parts of the female slave’s body must be concealed during prayer?” The Islamic State’s fatwa contains this answer: “Her private body parts [that must be concealed] during prayer are the same as those [that must be concealed] outside [prayer], and they [include] everything besides the head, neck, hands and feet.”
The pamphlet also explains that militants are not allowed to separate pre-pubescent children from their mothers by buying or selling them, but can do so “if the children are grown and mature.”
After seizing the town of Sinjar, Iraq in early August, the Islamic State captured what the US State Department estimated is between 1,500 and 4,000 Yazidi girls and women. These women have been raped, tortured, and in some cases even forced to marry the group’s fighters. On Dec. 17, several news outlets reported that one Islamic State militant murdered 150 women in Fallujah after the women refused to marry the group’s fighters. The mass killings could not be independently verified by The Long War Journal.
The Islamic State’s pamphlet highlights the brutal treatment that Yazidi women and others have suffered and will continue to face under the organization’s harsh interpretation of sharia law. Yazidi women who have been rescued from the Islamic State have recounted repeated rapes by the group’s fighters. Meanwhile, in its official English-language propaganda magazine, “Dabiq,” the Islamic State defends its treatment of the Yazidi women, citing Islamic law as its reasoning for capturing and enslaving them.
Despite female Islamic State recruiters describing “positive” aspects of life in Raqqah on their social media accounts, the group’s own material shows a different side, one that exposes its real and brutal treatment of women.
Clearly, life in Raqqah is nothing like the rosy picture painted by the Islamic State’s female boosters. In November, the United Nations released a report documenting the Islamic State’s various war crimes and other atrocities. One section is titled, “Violations against women.” In Islamic State-controlled “areas of Syria, women and girls have largely been confined to their houses, excised from public life.”
All aspects of their lives are covered by the Islamic State’s draconian sharia laws. The UN report notes that these laws are enforced not only by male members of the organization, but also by an “all-female brigade, Al-Khans’aa, which assists in monitoring adherence to dress codes and enforcing punishments.”
The Islamic State “has executed women, as well as men, for unapproved contact with the opposite sex, resulting in charges of adultery.” In Raqqah, on “three separate occasions” between June and July this year, groups of women were executed “on these grounds,” the UN report states. Most of them were “stoned to death, ostensibly for adultery.”
The situation is so dire that, according to one witness interviewed by the UN, a 19-year-old “university student” committed suicide rather than marry an Islamic State member, as her parents commanded.
The Islamic State’s female supporters do not tweet such horror stories. They prefer to pretend that the oppressive laws they live under are necessary and just.
Arab residents were Rioting, blocking roads, burning tires and hurling objects at police yesterday in Jaffa (Tel Aviv), during protests against police brutality,after one resident was shot and killed by cops, while fleeing a scene of a shooting. At around 4:30am Saturday morning, police received a report of gunfire on Yefet Street, with the window of a butcher shop having been smashed. Policemen who were patrolling nearby were called to the scene. When they arrived, they noticed several masked men trying to escape via motorcycles. Police began chasing after them, and eventually shot at them while trying to stop them, injuring two in the process. One of them later died of his wounds. This deadly incident caused the riots in Jaffa during Saturday, which later resumed at evening when the funeral of the dead Arab guy was taking place. The funeral, which traveled from the deceased's home through the local mosque, turned into more riots.
As reported earlier today, a young culture-enricher went on a jihad rampage in Hamburg today with a large knife — possibly a kebab knife — killing one person and wounding five others.
Egri Nök has compiled a report on the day’s events in Hamburg, and the official response.
Hamburg Jihadi a Palestinian Refugee
by Egri Nök
The attacker who today killed one man in a supermarket in Hamburg and injured six other people, one of them gravely, was a Palestinian “refugee” named Ahmed al H., according to the German newspaper Tagesspiegel. He was born in 1991 in Saudi Arabia [or the U.A.E.] and came to Germany as a refugee.
Although he was due to be deported, he couldn’t be, due to his lack of papers.
He is reportedly known to German intelligence agencies as an extremist, and as a so-called “risk” — one of those assessed by German intelligence agencies as willing to commit acts of violence.
According to Bild, the refugee accomodation where H. was residing was raided this evening by police.
A video shows passers-by fighting the attacker with chairs.
There will be a police press conference tomorrow at 12:00 PM CET that we will report from.
A machete-wielding man has killed one and injured several others after going on the rampage through a German supermarket this afternoon.
The attacker, who reportedly screamed Allahu Akbar, ran into an Edeka shop in the northern city of Hamburg and knifed a customer to death before slashing at four others as he fled.
He ran off but was pursued by passers-by who wrestled him to the ground and called police who made an arrest.
Heavily armed officers have locked the area down and police helicopters have been seen above the crime scene. A motive for the knifing has not yet been established.
According to Bild, the man shouted 'Allahu Akbar' as he launched the attack in a branch of Edeka, Germany's largest supermarket chain.
A witness told the newspaper: 'The man has suddenly struck out on customers, there was one dead and several injured.'
The Pakistani military says four Pakistani soldiers were killed on Sunday when their army vehicle was struck by Indian shelling from across the Line of Control (LoC) that separates parts of Kashmir held by both countries.
The Pakistan army resorted to heavy shelling and firing at the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri and Poonch districts on Saturday, to which the Indian Army had strongly retaliated according to officials. "Pakistan army resorted to unprovoked shelling and firing at Indian positions in Rajouri and Poonch sectors of the LoC," Defence Ministry sources told IANS
