Munich gunman planned attacks for one year - Bavarian state crime office | Reuters

MUNICH The 18-year-old German-Iranian gunman who killed nine people in Munich on Friday began planning the attack one year ago after visiting the site of a 2009 school shooting in southwest Germany that killed 15 people, a Bavarian state official said on Sunday. Robert Heimberger, president of the Bavarian state crime office, said material founded at his home showed the gunman was an avid player of violent video crimes who purchased his weapon -- a reactivated Glock 17 pistol -- on the so-called dark net, an area of the Internet accessible only via special software. Heimberger said the parents of the gunman remained in shock and were not able to be interviewed. #Middle East #Europe #Iran #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #article

BEIRUT/WASHINGTON Montreal academic Homa Hoodfar was preparing to return to Canada from Iran in March when agents from Iran's powerful paramilitary Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps raided her Tehran home and took her laptop, phone, books and passport, her family said. Over the course of the next three months, Hoodfar, an Iranian, Canadian and Irish citizen, was called in regularly for day-long interrogations. On June 6, she went in for yet another interrogation session but was not released.       Nine days later, the hardline Mashregh site, which is affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards, published what it alleged were her crimes: creating security problems within the Islamic Republic by taking part in feminist activities. #Politics #India #Europe #Iran #Crime #article

Turkey's bungled putsch: a strangely 20th century coup | Reuters

ANKARA/BRUSSELS It was a strangely 20th century coup, defeated by 21st century technology and people power. When a self-styled military "Peace Council" tried to topple Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and his increasingly authoritarian government on Friday night, the rebel generals and colonels seemed to be fighting the last war. "This coup was obviously planned quite well but using a playbook from the 1970s," said Gareth Jenkins, a researcher and writer on military affairs based in Istanbul. #Iran #Security #United Kingdom #Turkey #article
