1) BREAKING: #ISIS’ Furqan issues new video showing leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, marking the first time he is shown in a video since his July 2014 sermon at the Great Mosque in #Mosul
2) The video shows Baghdadi in a casual conversational setting with others (their faces blurred). He talks about war against "Crusaders" and about battles in #Baghouz #Syria being over, indicating that this interview was filmed somewhat recently.
3) In the vid, titled “In the Hospitality of the Emir of the Believers,” Baghdadi praises #SriLanka attackers over images of the attackers/attack (though not in the visual interview section; the audio may have thus been added via a later recording)--calling it revenge for Baghouz

RT - Révélations sur la future mosquée An-Nour de #Mulhouse, l’un des plus grands projets #islamistes d'#Europe, et ses liens avec le terrorisme #djihad. A dérouler 👇
La mosquée An-Nour va être inaugurée le 6 mai prochain, premier jour du Ramadan. C’est la filiale locale de l’#UOIF, l’@AMAL, qui porte le projet. Avec ses 1500 m2 de salles de prière et un total de 10 000m2, ce centre islamique se classe parmi les plus grands d'#Europe.
Dans leur passage sur @ONPCofficiel, @Malbrunot et @cchesnot ont évoqué la face sombre de cette mosquée #UOIF, notamment l'implication de la djihadiste Hanane Aboulhana.

1) This week saw a terrorist mass murder in #Mali where 140 (mostly Muslim) #Fulani died, incl. children & pregnant women. It didn't get much space in the "Western" press compared to what happened in New Zealand. People will tell you diff. in coverage about "cultural proximity."
2) Few problems w/"proximity" argument in global news coverage. First, I'll bet most people in US/Europe didn't have faintest idea who was NZ PM before the Christchurch attacks. Or anything about NZ society. So, what's the "proximity"? This: they're (mostly) white, speak English.
3) Second problem with the "We don't cover Mali because it's not relevant to our audience" argument is that, while not covering Mali, same media companies don't cover poor non-white communities in their OWN countries. So, what's excuse there? Because it ain't lack of "relevance."

La revue #Afriquecontemporaine est morte. La démission du directeur scientifique Marc-Antoine Pérouse de Montclos @ird_fr le confirme. Une intervention politique vient de censurer et interdire la publication de notre dossier sur le #Mali après l’approbation du comité scientifique
Je dirigeais le dossier, composé de mon introduction à celui-ci, d'un article sur les groupes armés, un autre sur le Centre du #Mali, un repère sur la RSS, le mien sur les interventions internationales et autres ajouts de la rédaction. Les auteurs s'identifieront s'ils le veulent
Le processus d'évaluation des pairs a été rigoureux. Deux articles qui devaient être inclus dans le dossier ont été rejetés. Les autres ont subi les critiques et ont été révisés en conséquence. Suite à cela, la publication avait été approuvée et prévue par l'équipe scientifique

Nigeria’s 2019 Election:
What Are We Missing?
Vote buying. Thuggery. Rigged primaries. Logistical
failures. Official misconduct. Ballot box snatching.
Budget delays. Voter apathy. Intimidation. Turnout
suppression. Inconclusive results. Bribed officials
#NigeriaDecides2019
These and many other challenges routinely undermine the credibility and smooth conduct of elections in Nigeria.
