Two bombing attacks on the offices of three Nigerian newspapers killed at least seven people and injured dozens. The first attack was carried out by a suicide bomber in the capital, Abuja. The second took place in the northern city of Kaduna.
In an echo of last year’s “Camp of the Saints” refugee crisis, a boatload of Afghan migrants was apparently abandoned off the coast of Calabria by human traffickers. At least one would-be immigrant died when 35 were thrown overboard by the traffickers.

“Cost of Spain’s Housing Bust Could Force a Bailout”
Yesterday there was a TV program about this in a private channel. According to Paul Krugman, Spain is not in recession, but in depression, which means that it could take 3-10 years to turn things right. There’s no country on the planet with such a high percentage of youth unemployment, more that 50%. Thousands of young people have already left the country, there’s no future here for them. The level of overall unemployment has officially reached the 6 million people. Rumors spread that the two biggest banks, the BBVA and the Santander cannot be saved. The level of poverty has risen to unprecedented levels, there are even “food banks” to provide charities with food, which after they distribute. There are even no free places in the free meal compounds. One has to book a place in advance to get a free meal. And meanwhile social unrest escalates. It’s not only about leftists and anarchists rioting, but also all kinds of immigrants. Some days ago there was an enormous riot in Madrid in which hundreds of latinos were involved. They began to fight each other at the doors of a disco. one of the most important streets in Madrid had to be closed, and police intervened with rubber balls.
Major social and economic unrests are to come. And I guess illegals still keep coming…
The world simply cannot be more insane than it nowadays is.
here’s a vid about the above mentioned riots provoked by thousands of latinos in Madrid:
