“Every time we pass by it, we can’t help but think of it”: residents of the Porte de Vincennes district in eastern Paris cannot forget the drama of the Hyper Cacher, a local Jewish supermarket where an Islamist gunman Amedy Coulibaly killed three customers and an employee five years ago as part of a wider terror attack that, days earlier, had targeted the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Coulibaly was later killed by police. The trial into the accomplices to the terror attacks is currently being held in Paris.

Easter Bombings Have Sri Lankan’s Voting for an Alleged War Criminal

Sri Lankans are voting for a new president on Saturday, and in the wake of the worst terror attack of the year, one of their top priorities is national security. That’s propelled an alleged war-criminal to the front of the race.

Many blame the current administration for dropping the ball on valuable intel that could have prevented a string of suicide blasts coordinated by a local Islamist group that killed 259 people in churches and hotels on Easter Sunday.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa, the leader of the opposition political party, has capitalized on that anger. Leveraging his background as a former defense secretary who ended a civil war, he’s found support through pitching himself as the guy who’ll make Sri Lanka safe again.

Sudan Is Holding Sit-Ins In Hopes Of Removing Military From Power (HBO)

Omar Ismail sang a revolutionary song as he frisked people before letting them pass a barricade of bricks and twisted metal in the capital city of Khartoum last week. It was past 10 o’clock at night, but people still streamed toward the massive sit-in outside the country’s military headquarters, where thousands of protesters calling for a new government have been camped since April 6.

Ismail confiscated any potential weapons and checked identification cards. If any government officials aligned with the previous regime of President Omar al-Bashir, security forces, or members of Islamist student groups tried to enter, he would arrest them, he said.

“The law here is our law,” said Ismail, 21, who before the revolution studied software engineering at a local university. “The law here is freedom.”

The sit-in, a sprawling collection of tents, stages, kitchens, and checkpoints that stretches for nearly a mile on the streets of Khartoum, has become the heart of an unprecedented uprising seeking to remake one of the world’s most oppressed countries.

What started in December as a bread riot in a small industrial town outside Khartoum, snowballed into a nationwide movement — and one of the world’s largest and most impressive nonviolent mass actions in recent memory. It reached its zenith on April 11, when Sudan’s Islamist dictator, Omar al-Bashir, failed to break up the sit-in and was forced from power in a military coup. Al-Bashir had ruled Sudan since seizing power in 1989, and his reign was marked by civil war, accusations of genocide in the country’s Darfur region, a collapsed economy, and the secession of the nation’s southern half.
