Attacks in Egypt's Sinai kill 33 security personnel

ISMAILIA (Reuters) - Two attacks in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula killed 33 security personnel on Friday, security sources said, in some of the worst anti-state violence since Islamist President Mohamed Mursi was overthrown last year. The violence prompted Egypt to declare a three-month state of emergency in parts of North Sinai, where the violence took place, the state news agency reported. The attacks are a setback for the government, which had managed over the past few months to make some progress in the struggle against an Islamist militant insurgency in the Sinai as it focuses on trying to repair the economy #Economy #India #Japan #Technology #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Mexico #opinion

Police say New York hatchet attack by Islamic convert was terrorist attack

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The hatchet-wielding man who wounded two New York City police officers, critically injuring one, was a self-radicalized convert to Islam who is believed to have acted alone in what police on Friday called a terrorist attack. The suspect, Zale Thompson, who was shot dead by two other officers on Thursday afternoon on a Queens street, had made anti-Western postings on social media and visited websites associated with several radical Islamic groups, police told a news conference. A search of computers seized from the home of Thompson's father in Queens, where the 32-year-old man lived, showed he also spent time reading online about beheadings, a recent intrusion at the White House and attacks in Canada #Business #United States #India #Technology #France #Russia #markets #Mexico #opinion

Slain Canadian soldier heads home on "Highway of Heroes"

OTTAWA (Reuters) - The body of a Canadian soldier shot dead while guarding the country's war memorial in Ottawa began the journey to his hometown on Friday, in a last ride along the nation's "Highway of Heroes." Police said a home-grown radical, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, killed Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, on Wednesday before fleeing into the Parliament building where he was shot dead near where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was meeting with lawmakers. Mourners and supporters lined portions of a roughly 500-kilometer (310-mile) route along Lake Ontario where a black hearse accompanied by police vehicles was due to travel to the soldier's home in Hamilton, Ontario. Comrades from Cirillo's unit, the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, dressed in ceremonial kilts, white boots and garters, carried his flag-draped coffin from an Ottawa funeral home to the hearse while bagpipes played #facebook #United States #India #Japan #Arabic #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico
