Somalis ‘pleased’ as Ilham Omar elected to US Congress

Somalis praise the election of onetime Somali refugee Ilhan Omar to the US Congress. Omar fled Somalia’s civil war with her parents at the age of eight and spent four years at a refugee camp in Kenya. She and Rashida Tlaib have become the first two Muslim women elected to the US Congress.

The CIA Officer Left Behind by Hillary Clinton

Sabrina De Sousa, a former CIA counterterrorism officer, is facing imminent extradition to Italy for her role in the unlawful rendition of a suspected terrorist, an operation she has long denied any involvement with.

In 2003, a radical Egyptian cleric named Abu Omar was kidnapped off the streets of Milan in broad daylight, by CIA officers assisted by Italian intelligence. Omar was then flown to Egypt, where he says he was tortured. In 2009, Sabrina De Sousa and two dozen other American officials were convicted in absentia by an Italian court for their role in the rendition.

Now facing a four-year prison term in Italy, De Sousa blames Hillary Clinton for failing to assist her back in 2012, when Clinton was serving as Secretary of State. De Sousa sent Clinton a plea for help, but she never received a reply. De Sousa has long argued that she had nothing to do with the rendition, and has appealed her extradition. But this month, a Portuguese court rejected her final legal appeal.

If De Sousa is jailed, she will be the first CIA officer ever imprisoned in connection with the Bush administration’s notorious “extraordinary rendition” program. VICE News traveled to Lisbon, Portugal to meet with De Sousa.

Zeds Dead & Omar LinX – Wake Up

One of the biggest unsigned tunes I’ve heard for a while. You may recognise the duo Zeds Dead (Hooks & DC) from their previous uploads on the Dubstep channel, as well as the vocalist Omar LinX. They’re from Toronto, Canada, but it won’t be long until they hit the UK. Expect some big things from Zeds Dead later in the year, definitely a duo worth looking out for!
