Overnight, militants linked to the horn-of-Africa terror group al Shabaab(the Youth), burst onto a Kenyan University campus close to the Somalian border, killing 14 people and wounding 65. So far, only 280 of the 815 students of the University have been accounted for.
In Egypt, militants killed 15 soldiers and two civilians in the Sinai region. In Afghanistan, a suicide bomber infiltrated an anti corruption street protest and detonated a bomb killing 17.
In Yemen, al Qaeda militants sprung more than 200 imprisoned terrorists from a jail including a known al Qaeda leader as Houthi fighters entered central Aden, a once-stronghold of the failing Yemeni government.
In Thailand, the rights suppressing military authoritarian government suspended martial law across the country, but replaced it with an even more draconian set of rules, as the United Nations call for a return to civilian rule there.
In Syria, Bashar al Assad's forces bomb areas close to the Jordanian border that had been occupied the day before by fighters seeking to liberate Syria from Assad's control.
And such are but a few of the violent and oppressive events confronting the world on this, April 02, 2015, which when taken in sum, amount to sufficient strife to adversely effect global security.
More of these acts could be expected over the coming months across lands ravished in strife and conflict. Thus, it becomes more imperative that such events be contained to as small a geographical area as possible and that greater vigilance be paid to averting any such events in the homelands of the free.
