Exclusive: Agency believes the fighters could have been trained to bomb Europe as revenge for military defeats in Middle East

Isis extremists in Raqqa in 2014. It is not known whether the militants will attempt to set up a new Syrian base when their ‘capital’ falls.

Interpol has circulated a list of 173 Islamic State fighters it believes could have been trained to mount suicide attacks in Europe in revenge for the group’s military defeats in the Middle East.

The global crime fighting agency’s list was drawn up by US intelligence from information captured during the assault on Isis territories in Syria and Iraq.

European counter-terror networks are concerned that as the Isis “caliphate” collapses, there is an increasing risk of determined suicide bombers seeking to come to Europe, probably operating alone.

There is no evidence that any of the people on the list, whose names the Guardian has obtained, have yet entered Europe, but the Interpol circulation, designed to see if EU intelligence sources have any details on the individuals, underlines the scale of the challenge facing Europe.

The list, sent out by the general secretariat of Interpol on 27 May, defines the group of fighters as individuals that “may have been trained to build and position improvised explosive devices in order to cause serious deaths and injuries. It is believed that they can travel internationally, to participate in terrorist activities.”

The data was originally collected by the US intelligence “through trusted channels”. The material was handed over to the FBI, which transmitted the list to Interpol for global sharing.

A note appended to the Interpol list circulated in Italy explains how the terrorist database was constructed, putting together the pieces of the puzzle from hundreds of elements, mainly gathered when Isis local headquarters were captured.

“The people,” the note says, “have been identified through materials found in the hiding places of Isil, the Islamic state of Iraq and the Levant.” The note adds that “it emerges that those subjects may have manifested willingness to commit a suicidal attack or martyrdom to support Islam”.

The list shows the suspects’ names, the date Isis recruited them, their last likely address including the mosque at which they have been praying while away fighting, their mother’s name and any photographs.

For each of the fighters, an ID was created to ensure that each member country in the Interpol network could integrate the data with local databases.

Interpol has asked its national partners for any information they might have about each name on the list, and any other background personal data they have on their files, such as border crossings, previous criminal offences, biometric data, passport numbers, activity on social media and travel history.

The information will then be included in Interpol’s ASF (automatic search facility) database in order to possibly put the names on a higher level watch list.

US intelligence is apparently confident about the reliability of the sources used to compile the list. But western counter-terrorism forces have said they face an uphill struggle identifying potential suspects, who have access to a mountain of false documents, double identities and fake passports.

Interpol stressed the list’s transmission came as part of its role circulating information between national crime-fighting agencies. “Interpol regularly sends alerts and updates to its national central bureaux (NCB) on wanted terrorists and criminals via our secure global police communications network,” a spokesman said. “It is the member country which provides the information that decides which other countries it can be shared with.

“The purpose of sending these alerts and updates is to ensure that vital policing information is made available when and where it is needed, in line with a member country’s request.”

A European counter-terrorism officer said one of the purposes of circulating the list around Europe was to identify those on it who might have been born and raised in European countries.

In 2015 the UN considered there were 20,000 foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria, of whom 4,000 were from Europe, but there has not previously been a specific list of those fighters including those born in the Middle East who have been identified as potential suicide bombers.

The speed with which Isis fighters are likely to attempt to reach Europe will depend on a range of issues including whether the group tries to set up a new base in Syria in the wake of the impending fall of Raqqa, its last major redoubt in north-west Syria. There is a growing suggestion that Isis fighters will shift south from Raqqa to the defensible territory stretching from Deir el-Zourez-Zor to Abu Kamal.

The jihadi group is currently struggling to come to terms with the loss of Mosul in northern Iraq following a battle that produced some of the most brutal fighting since the end of the second world war.

The parallel advance on Raqqa, the group’s other urban stronghold in the region, has been stalled partly due to the severity of the resistance being mounted against the Syrian Democratic Forces made up of an alliance of Kurds, Arabs and US Special forces.

US Army Col Ryan Dillon on Friday estimated there were around 2,000 Isis militants in the city, who he said were using civilians and children as human shields. The distance between SDF forces on the eastern side of the city and on the western fronts is now just under 2km.

The United Nations estimates that about 190,000 residents of Raqqa province have been displaced since April, including about 20,000 since the operation to seize the provincial capital began in early June.

US diplomats this week admitted that the SDF forces, due to their ethnic make-up, will be constrained from going south of Raqqa to pursue Isis as far as Deir Azzour, saying this may be the task of the Syrian forces under Bashar al Assad, or even Iranian-backed Shia militia.

The clock may be ticking for a man who allegedly duped two Gumtree sellers into letting him try on an expensive Rolex watch before running off with it.

Police are searching for the man who met the sellers at Doncaster Shopping Centre.

The sellers set up the meeting with the man, who used the name “Johnny”, after he expressed interest in buying the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch, which had been advertised on Gumtree for $22,000.

After asking to try on the watch, the man ran off with it.

One of the sellers chased after the man, but gave up when the thief allegedly pulled out a weapon and threatened him with it.

Features of the stolen watch, according to the Gumtree advertisement, include a “chocolate Arabic dial and black ceramic bezel black strap” and an “18 [carat] everose gold folding buckle with locking clasp”.

Police have released images taken from CCTV footage of the man, who is described as being aged between 20 and 30 years old and about 180 centimetres tall, with an athletic build.

The former rapper left his family home in an affluent west London suburb last year to fight in the civil war in Syria.

In early August he tweeted a photo of himself wearing military camouflage and a black hood, while holding a severed head in his left hand.

British SAS forces are hunting Foley’s killer, using a range of high-tech equipment to track him down and potentially free other hostages.

MURDER SUSPECT Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary who raps under the name Lyricist Jinn.

Bary is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trial on terrorism charges in Manhattan, due to his alleged involvement in the bombing of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.

Before leaving the family home to fight in Syria, Bary was an aspiring rapper known as L Jinny whose music was played on one of Britain’s most popular radio stations, BBC Radio 1.

The Mail on Sunday is reporting that a “significant force” of SAS personnel has been deployed to northern Iraq over the past two days, joining local units fighting the Islamic State. They have fanned out into four-man teams, accompanying Iraqi and Kurdish troops in an effort to find British jihadists.

The Sunday Times reports that Bary is the key focus of the manhunt. He is one of the British jihadists referred to by former hostages as the Beatles because of their British accents. The two others were called “George” and “Ringo”.

The two other Britons suspected of involvement in the crime are Aine Davis, a former drug dealer who converted to Islam, and Razul Islam, who is believed to have joined the terrorist group that murdered Foley.

Recordings of his songs will prove vital to the investigating team, with experts using voice recognition technology to match his voice with that of the man who brutally decapitated Mr Foley.

Bary made a number of music videos for his songs, with titles such as Flying High, Dreamer and Overdose.

It is believed he was indoctrinated by an Islamic preacher named Anjem Choudary who persuaded him to join the fight in Syria.

The game that identifies MOST WANTED criminals on the run shows in this video




NAIROBI: Ugandan and American troops have suspended their joint hunt for war crimes suspect Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army, delivering a major setback to efforts to capture a notorious warlord accused of abducting tens of thousands of children.

The Ugandan military and the US State Department separately announced on Wednesday that they had temporarily halted the search because of political turmoil in the Central African Republic, where Kony and his deputies are thought to be hiding.


Rebel groups unaffiliated with Kony seized power in the Central African Republic last week, forcing President Francois Bozize — who had been friendly with Washington — to flee the country.

Colonel Felix Kulayigye, a Ugandan army spokesman, told reporters that the hunt for Kony would remain on hold “until further notice” because rebel leaders in the Central African Republic were refusing to co-operate with Ugandan troops stationed in the country.

Shortly afterward, State Department officials in Washington said the US military would likewise “pause” its operations in the Central African Republic. A Pentagon spokesman said that about 40 US Special Forces troops are deployed in the country, where they are advising and training about 3000 African troops — mainly Ugandans — looking for Kony in the jungle.


President Obama deployed about 100 US Special Forces troops to Africa in October 2011 to co-ordinate a regional effort to track Kony, a brutal and messianic Ugandan guerrilla leader who has been on the run for a quarter-century.

The US military said it will not withdraw its troops from the Central African Republic for now in hopes that a political solution can be reached soon so the search for Kony can resume. Meanwhile, the 40 US Special Forces troops will remain at two camps deep in the bush, near the towns of Obo and Djema.

The rest of the 60 US troops are stationed in Uganda, South Sudan and Congo, where they will continue normal operations, said Major Robert Firman, a Pentagon spokesman.


Kony and most of his deputies are thought to be hiding in the Central African Republic, but they regularly cross borders and are well-practised at disappearing into the bush. They long ago stopped using radios and mobile phones to avoid leaving an electronic trail, frustrating US efforts to track them with satellites and surveillance aircraft.

The suspension of the search overshadowed a previously planned announcement by the State Department to offer $US5 million in rewards for information leading to the arrest or conviction of Kony or two other LRA leaders, Okot Odhiambo and Dominic Ongwen.

Donald Y. Yamamoto, the State Department’s acting top diplomat for African affairs, said the US government “remains very committed” to defeating the LRA. “Even though we’ve taken a pause because of the developments” in the Central African Republic, he told reporters, “we’re going to use all facilities and all technology at our hands to try to find and locate Kony and his crew.”


Kony created the Lord’s Resistance Army in the 1980s to overthrow Uganda’s government. The militia left Uganda several years ago but continued to terrorise villagers in central Africa across a swathe of terrain the size of California, kidnapping children and transforming them into killers and sex slaves.

Over the past two years, the militia has significantly weakened, numbering no more than a few hundred fighters, according to UN officials and analysts. High-profile defections have fragmented the group, which now stages assaults mostly for food and supplies.

But Wednesday’s announcement has raised fears among international human rights groups that Kony and the LRA could regroup and reignite their campaign of brutality.


“A premature withdrawal would have devastating and immediate consequences for civilians in LRA-affected areas,” said Ben Keesey, head of Invisible Children, an activist group that prominently raised public awareness about the LRA’s atrocities last year. “It gives Kony a new lease on life, enabling him to regain power by initiating new rounds of abductions in communities that will be left totally unprotected and vulnerable to LRA attacks.”

The Ugandan military also is not planning to remove its soldiers from the Central African Republic, Kulayigye said, but it will confine them to their bases until the African Union clarifies their status. The African Union has suspended the membership of the Central African Republic and imposed travel restrictions on the rebels who have appointed themselves leaders of the country.


Kulayigye also warned that Kony and the LRA could use the suspension of the search as an opportunity to stage attacks.

Bozize, the ousted leader of the Central African Republic, also had seized power in a coup. But he welcomed the presence of the Ugandans and the Americans and their efforts to eliminate Kony and the LRA.

The International Criminal Court at The Hague has indicted Kony on 33 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including murder and rape.

Last year, Invisible Children released the short film Kony 2012, which generated more than 100 million views online, bringing global attention to the LRA.

Former bush fugitive and accused murderer Malcolm Naden stole talcum powder, a purple doona, a pair of sheepskin boots, a mirror and a book titled Dreams, court documents allege.

OzSpy Spy Shop

Mr Naden, 38, is charged with 13 break-and-enter offences and one of entering a dwelling that allegedly occurred between 2007 and 2012.

His matter came before Central Local Court today but Mr Naden, who is yet to enter a plea on a range of charges, did not appear.

Police allege that, while breaking into rural properties, he stole thousands of items of food and clothing, as well as several weapons.

The missing items included more than a few dozen bottles of beer, toothbrushes and five kilograms of raw cashews. A real man with real needs…!!!

Property owners also reported that several pairs of binoculars, a semi-automatic rifle, knives and a solar-powered radio were stolen. How to survive in the bush whilst on the run.

Talcum powder, a purple doona, a pair of sheepskin boots, a mirror and a book titled Dreams also disappeared. Bare esentials for a bush fugitive in Australia.

Naturally Gifted - gifts with a natural difference

Did they mention the cookies and milk he stole under the guise of ‘Billy The Kid’

The former abattoir worker was captured in a remote area of Gloucester in the Upper Hunter region on March 22. Maybe he captured and killed kangaroos for food.

He had been on the run from police since 2005. Long time between drinks mate.

Mr Naden has also been charged with murder in connection with the death of Kristy Scholes in 2005 and two counts of aggravated indecent assault on a 12-year-old girl.

If he is guilty of murder then a slow death is too good for him. If not guilty it makes for great

Australian bushranger saga

He was also charged with the attempted murder of a police officer at Nowendoc on December 7, 2011. How often are these claims of attempted murder of a police officer over exaggerated.

Maybe he spat in the face of the police officer & it was interpreted as attempted murder by possible disease transmission…!! Or did he shoot the officer and the bullet grazed his brain leaving him in a coma. They leave us thinking the worst. Is this how we the Australian people of the past come to support to a great extent the folklore of the Australian bushranger or the Billy the kid legends of the American wild west?

Police also suspect he was involved in the disappearance of Lateesha Nolan, who went missing before Mr Naden disappeared in 2005.

Magistrate Clare Farnan adjourned today’s matter to the same court on August 7, when Mr Naden is expected to enter a plea to the indecent assault charges.

Elderly man found dead in pool

of blood after train beating

August 29, 2011 – 12:03PM

CCTV footage shows the elderly bashing victim calmly waiting for the train on which he was fatally attacked.CCTV footage shows the elderly bashing victim calmly waiting for the train on which he was fatally & brutally attacked.

An elderly man waits at Newcastle station to board the Sydney-bound train, a journey that would ultimately cost him his life.

Strike Force Ploughman detectives have launched a murder investigation after the 76-year-old man died in John Hunter Hospital on Saturday night, less than two days after he was savagely beaten on the lonely ride somewhere between Newcastle and Fassifern stations.

Homicide squad members have joined Lake Macquarie investigators in their hunt for the man’s attackers.

Detectives last night released the closed circuit television footage of the victim waiting patiently near the guard room on the Newcastle station platform shortly after 3am on Friday.

Less than an hour later he boarded the 3.59am service to Central Station, and less than 30 minutes after that he suffered severe head and facial injuries in a beating that was to prove fatal.

Commuters found him in a pool of blood minutes before the train was due to stop at Fassifern about 4.27am.

Strike Force Ploughman detectives are continuing to trawl through security vision from a series of train stations and on board the service.

The service is known to have stopped at Civic, Wickham, Hamilton, Broadmeadow and Cardiff stations before it arrived at Fassifern.

Detectives are yet to confirm the man’s identity, although he is believed to be from Sydney.

He is described as being of Mediterranean or Middle Eastern appearance and 160 centimetres tall.

He was wearing a dark grey sloppy joe, dark pants and brown leather boots.

Investigators are also keen to piece together the man’s last movements before he boarded the train at Newcastle and believe people may have seen him in the central business district in the early hours of Friday.

Early reports that the man was homeless are also yet to be confirmed.

Anyone with information is asked to phone Lake detectives on 4942 9999 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Wanted man arrested over

vicious Maylands killings

Garry Edmund Brown - Maylands double murder suspect.

Detective Inspector Dave Bryson holds up a photo of Garry Edmund Brown who was taken into custody in relation to a double murder in Maylands earlier this morning.

A 47-year-old man has been arrested over the brutal murder of a couple in a Maylands unit early this morning after being released on bail three days earlier over an alleged aggravated robbery.

The vicious murder of Chris Stoodley, 36, and Jenni Garrett, 29, just after 6.30am today sparked a manhunt across Perth, with police scouring trains and the CBD for any sign of a man seen fleeing the property just after the incident occurred.

Less than two hours after the murder police disclosed the identity of 47-year-old Garry Edmund Brown as a person of interest in the double homicide.

Channel Nine reported Mr Stoodley and Ms Garrett both were repeatedly stabbed to death.

Earlier this week Mr Brown had been taken into custody after going to his father’s house, where he allegedly stole five licensed guns belonging to his elderly father, the Perth Magistrate’s Court heard.

He told the magistrate he had taken the guns because his father suffered from dementia and had used towels to conceal them as laundry when his daughter collected him from his father’s property.

8 Tenth Ave, Maylands, WA, Australia, 6051

He said he had also gone to the property to confront his father about being sexually molested at the age of 11.

Mr Brown was a self-confessed recovering heroin addict who had gotten “clean” on a methadone program while serving jail for four years, the court heard.

He was released in 2003 and said he was doing “everything right” ever since, even applying for an extraordinary driver’s licence so he wouldn’t be caught driving on a suspended licence.

The elderly man reported the alleged robbery and threats made against him by his son to police, who swooped in on an Ellenbrook address Mr Brown was living at with his daughter. The guns were seized and Mr Brown was arrested for one count of aggravated robbery and taken into custody.

When he faced the Magistrate’s Court on Monday he refused legal advice and insisted on applying for bail that morning, which was granted for $5000 and $5000 in surety to be paid by his sister who was in court.

Today, he was spotted by a member of the public and was taken into custody without incident at a Nollamara home about 9.40am.

Detective Inspector Dave Bryson from major crime squad described the murder scene as “gruesome” and said it was a brutal murder.

He said Mr Brown along with the two victims had spent the night at the unit, which was being rented to another man. This man was believed to have witnessed the murder, however he was not injured. He has been assisting police with their inquiries.

Detective Inspective Bryson said it was “very early days” and there was no known motive for the murders.

“It was very graphic, a very graphic scene,” he said.

“Early information that we’ve got is that they were all friends.

“All four people were at that address during the course of the night.”

Ambulance officers were called to a three-storey block of units on Tenth Avenue in Maylands just before 7am following reports of a serious assault.

Police arrived a short time later and cordoned off the street between Railway Parade and Coode Street. Officers have since been doorknocking for witnesses and all neighbours attempting to leave the street were interviewed by police.

Reports that the suspect was seen boarding a train at the nearby Maylands station forced the closure of the Midland line for about half an hour as police searched the station and several trains in the area.

The police helicopter and the police canine unit were called in to assist in tracking the suspect.

The World’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives
Nathan Vardi 04.25.08, 4:05 PM ET


The whole world is the playground of today’s criminal masterminds. The worst thieves and thugs have found the dark side of globalization, exploiting the same technologies that make the Earth seem small and ripe for legitimate international commerce and trade. They have unleashed an unprecedented crime wave that is truly borderless.

Less hierarchical, and operating as elusive networks, today’s criminal gangs are able to nimbly take advantage of new opportunities as they arise. They hack, steal, smuggle, launder and kill on a global scale, working with different partners and evading various law enforcement units and agencies. The most troubling convergence: the merging of international criminal activity with violent terrorism.

No surprise then that Osama Bin Laden tops’s first-ever list of the world’s 10 most wanted fugitives. The most wanted man in the world is believed to be hiding in Pakistan, perhaps in the Waziristan region. U.S. President George W. Bush has said Bin Laden is wanted dead or alive. But for six years, Bin Laden has been able to evade the largest manhunt in international history by sticking to the unruly tribal areas along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

Video: Criminals On The Run

Others on the list may not be as familiar. Among them: Joaquin Guzman. Mexico’s most powerful drug trafficker, Guzman has taken over the narcotics racket once dominated by Colombians like Pablo Escobar. Guzman, known as el Chapo, or shorty, heads the Sinaloa Cartel, specializing in importing cocaine from Colombia, and smuggling it into the U.S., often through elaborate tunnels. Ruthless and determined, Guzman has lorded over a bloody power struggle in Mexico over transport corridors to the U.S. that have left thousands dead.

Others on the list include Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov, the face of the modern Russian mob; Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, India’s most wanted man, who heads D-Company, an organized crime group based in Mumbai; Félicien Kabuga, arguably the driving force behind the Rwanda genocides; and Matteo Messina Denaro, the Italian mafia’s playboy, with a taste for Porches and Rolex watches.

Various law enforcement agencies have their own most wanted lists that usually focus on crimes that took place in their local or national jurisdictions. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list, created in 1950, is the most famous of its kind. But given the current state of globalized crime, an international most wanted list makes more sense now than ever. consulted with law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and around the world to identify these 10. With the exception of Osama Bin Laden, there is little consensus over who should be included on a list that is ultimately subjective in nature. But we tried to come up with basic ground rules.

Everyone on the list has been criminally indicted or charged, some in national jurisdictions and some by international tribunals. They all are accused of a long history of committing serious crimes and are considered a dangerous menace to the world. Each of the members on the list also represent a type of criminal problem that legal institutions are grappling with in diverse jurisdictions.

“What they all have in common is that whether their crimes have occurred principally at the national or international level, their crimes have been so significant that they should be pursued globally,” said Interpol Secretary-General Ronald Noble after taking a look at the list. “With regard to the world’s most wanted criminals, it is always easy to see the tremendous local impact that their crimes have had.”

Indeed, most of the top 10 most wanted fugitives in the world have been criminally indicted in U.S. courts and are wanted by the U.S. government, which has expended serious resources investigating and chasing them. Forbes will periodically review the list to determine whether a replacement is warranted and will scratch off those fugitives who are put out of action.
