Police are treating a series of acid attacks Thursday night across London as linked, and have arrested a 16-year-old male.
At least one victim suffered “life changing injuries” Thursday night in the apparent crime spree, which saw five attacks take place in 84 minutes in East London and Islington.
The arrested teenager is being held on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and robbery.
Police described the attacks in their statement, which revealed the first attack took place at 22:25 on the Hackney road. Officers said the male victim had been on a moped when a pair of men on a second moped pulled up beside him.
The men threw a “corrosive substance” into his face, before stealing his moped and riding away. When officers responded, they found that the man had sustained facial injuries, but they are not being treated as “life threatening or life changing”.

“Through our affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), we made an oral intervention before the United Nations Human Rights Council on behalf of Christians facing genocide in the Middle East,” the organization said.
“We gave our most detailed account yet of the atrocities carried out by ISIS against Christians and other religious and ethnic minorities. ”
It told the council:
The actions of ISIS against Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria clearly embody the definition of genocide as enshrined in the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. The ISIS campaign to destroy these religious minorities and decimate their homelands and cultures undoubtedly meets the definition of genocide, and as long as the UN does not recognize it as such, these vulnerable groups remain unprotected and in peril.
We got the report of a Christian Syrian woman who saw “‘Christians being killed and tortured, and . . . children being beheaded in front of their parents’”. She said, “250 children . . . were put in the dough mixer, they were kneaded. The oldest one of them was four-years-old”. ISIS tortured a boy while demanding his father and two others renounce Christianity, before executing all four by crucifixion. Eight Christian women were publically raped and beheaded. There are “mass graves of Christians”.
The victims of ISIS’s genocide deserve the recognition and protection of the international community. It is imperative that the U.N. acknowledge the ISIS campaign for what it is – genocide – end these atrocities, and seek justice for the victims.
While the ECLJ calls for swift and decisive action by the international community to stop the genocide and protect the victims, it also understands that first the U.N. must recognize that the atrocities constitute genocide.
The U.N. council, however, “has remained silent while the Islamic State has continued its barbaric work.”

A few hundred people marched down Regent Street, behind the Palestinian and Hezbollah terror flag, before sitting down at the junction with Oxford Street shortly after 4.30pm on Sunday.
Many carried banners with messages including “Boycott Israel”, “Freedom for Palestine” and “Zionism = racism”.
The demonstration wound its way through the capital’s retail heart, which was busy with shoppers.
A man on a loudspeaker led the protesters in chants of “Free Palestine”.
One speaker then blamed the devastating In Grenfell Tower fire, which has left at least 58 people dead, on Israel supporters. Addressing the crowd at Grosvenor Square, he said: “Many innocents were murdered by Theresa May’s cronies – many of which are supporters of Zionist ideologies. Some of the biggest corporations who are supporting the Conservative Party are Zionists. They are responsible for the murder in Grenfell. The Zionist supporters of the Tory Party.”

Don’t be concerned. He was just a homeless guy. Don’t be concerned. He was mentally ill. Don’t be concerned. He was reacting to the bombing of his homeland. Don’t be concerned. He was lashing out after the President marginalized him. What’s that? The Islamic doctrine of jihad warfare against Christians and other non-Muslims? Oh, don’t pay any attention to that. That’s entirely irrelevant, in each and every case.

In Ramadan, a holy act. The clerics in this church must have insulted Muhammad in some way, right? They must have poked the poor dears in the eye.
No? Their only crime was being Christian? Appeasement and accommodation will only encourage more jihad violence? What are you, some kind of Islamophobe?

TAMPA, Fla. —
Two men were shot to death in Tampa, Fla., allegedly by their teenage roommate, allegedly because the victims were neo-Nazi sympathizers, as was the gunman until his recent conversion to Islam, WFTS reports.
“It’s obviously very shocking. I’m concerned for my safety,” said a nearby resident, who asked to remain fully anonymous, not showing his face or giving his name.
He lives near the apartment where Tampa police found two men shot dead after a teen led them there, admitting he’d killed eh,.
“Things happen, but it’s the proximity to which I am to the event, as well as the details that have been slowly released,” the man said.
Police said Devon Arthurs first went to a smoke shop Friday afternoon, where he took out a gun and told the two people to get on the ground and that he had killed someone.
Police convinced him to let those people go and turn himself in.
According to the police report, he then confessed he’d shot 22-year-old Jeremy Himmelman and 18-year-old Andrew Oneshuck at their apartment across the street from the sop. He told investigators the three shared a common neo-Nazi belief, until he converted to Islam.

As more and more details emerge concerning Friday’s Ramadan attack on a busload of Christians on pilgrimage, the more it becomes evident that these 29 martyrs died solely because they were Christians.
Survivors of the attack said that the ten masked Islamic State militants did not merely open fire on the bus full of Christian pilgrims on their way to the Monastery of Saint Samuel the Confesor, but that the victims were made to descend from the bus and asked one by one whether they were Christians before being shot by the assailants.
According to one of the chaplains of the group, Father Rashed, as each pilgrim came off the bus they were asked to renounce their Christian faith and profess belief in Islam, but all of them—even the children—refused. Each was killed in cold blood with a gunshot to the head or the throat.
