(EL PASO, Tx.) LATEST: Police and FBI investigators searched for clues on Sunday to explain what drove a young gunman from the Dallas area to kill 20 people at a Walmart store hundreds of miles away in the border city as Gov.Abbot says it appears to be a hate crime #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Aug.04: Editor says here’s what we know so far …………. Police arrested a 21-year-old man named Patrick Crusius, from the Dallas suburb of Allen, around 650 miles (1,046 kilometres) from El Paso. If found responsible for the atrocity, authorities say the suspect will be served with capital murder charges. Police and the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) are not yet certain as to the motive of the shooting, but the possibility of a hate crime is being investigated: Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Saturday morning’s rampage appeared to be a hate crime, and police cited a “manifesto” they attributed to the suspect as evidence that the bloodshed was racially motivated: The shooting immediately reverberated on the U.S. presidential campaign trail, with several Democratic candidates denouncing the rise of gun violence and repeating calls for tighter gun control measures according to the Guardian https://t.me/TheGuardianNews/49500

At least two candidates, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and El Paso native Beto O’Rourke, a former congressman, drew connections to a resurgence in white nationalism and xenophobic politics in the United States: “America is under attack from homegrown white nationalist terrorism,” Buttigieg said at a candidates forum in Las Vegas.

On Twitter, U.S. President Donald Trump branded the shooting “an act of cowardice,” adding, “I know that I stand with everyone in this country to condemn today’s hateful act. There are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing innocent people.” Police said the suspect opened fire with a rifle on shoppers, many of them bargain-hunting for back-to-school supplies, then surrendered to officers who confronted him outside the store:

The massacre came just six days after the last major outbreak of U.S. gun violence in a public place – a food festival in California where a teenager killed three people with an assault rifle and injured a dozen others before taking his own life in a hail of police gunfire: Police said the suspect in Saturday’s shooting was a 21-year-old white male from Allen, Texas, a Dallas suburb some 650 miles (1,046 km) east of El Paso, which lies along the Rio Grande across the U.S.-Mexico border from Ciudad Juarez: Multiple news media outlets, citing law enforcement officials, named the accused assailant as Patrick Crusius: In a briefing for reporters on Saturday night, some 12 hours after the shooting, an El Paso police spokesman, Sergeant Robert Gomez, said police were interviewing the suspect, while investigators continued to collect evidence at the crime scene.

Several local politicians said the gunman was an outsider, suggesting he had travelled hundreds of miles from the Dallas area to commit mass murder. But Gomez declined to say how long the suspect might have been in El Paso before the shooting: Authorities did not offer a precise motive. However, El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen said investigators were examining a “manifesto” from the suspect indicating “there is a potential nexus to a hate crime.” A four-page statement posted on 8chan, an online message board often used by extremists, and believed to have been written by the suspect, called the Walmart attack “a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.” It also expressed for support for the gunman who killed 51 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March……..CNN reported the FBI had opened a domestic terror investigation into the Texas shooting……“We are going to aggressively prosecute it both as capital murder but also as a hate crime, which is exactly what it appears to be,” Texas Governor Abbott told reporters.

El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, together with the neighbouring city of Las Cruces, New Mexico, form a metropolitan border area of some 2.5 million residents constituting the largest bilingual, bi-national population in North America: Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said three Mexican nationals were among the 20 people killed in the shooting, and six others were among 26 victims who were wounded: The carnage ranked as the eighth-deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, after a 1984 shooting in San Ysidro, California, that claimed 21 lives.

Gomez said investigators were still determining the sequence of events: But video clips from the scene showed victims lying on the ground inside and outside the store. One shopper told Reuters the gunshots sounded like they began outside the building and then moved inside: El Paso Mayor Dee Margo said police responded to the shooting within six minutes.

Local television station KTSM-TV published two photos it cited a law enforcement source as saying were security-camera images of the suspect as he entered the Walmart, wearing eyeglasses, khaki trousers and a dark T-shirt, and wielding an assault-style rifle: He appeared to be wearing headphones or ear protection: Eyewitnesses described scenes of pandemonium as shoppers fled for their lives, including Kianna Long who was at the Walmart with her husband when they heard gunfire: The couple sprinted through a stock room at the back of the store before huddling with other customers in a shipping area, she recounted: “People were panicking and running,” Long said. “They were running close to the floor, people were dropping on the floor.”

(TAIPEI, Taiwan.) JUST IN: Main opposition Nationalist Party (KMT) on Sunday officially nominated sitting Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu as its candidate for next year’s presidential election saying “ Only the KMT can protect the Republic of China (Taiwan’s official name) and improve people’s livelihoods,” #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – July.28: Speaking at a stadium in Banqiao, New Taipei City, after receiving the nomination, Han appealed to the public at large to help the party win in January: “Only the KMT can protect the Republic of China (Taiwan’s official name) and improve people’s livelihoods,” Han told those assembled at the party’s national congress, which met Sunday to finalize his nomination.

Apart from criticizing President Tsai Ing-wen’s performance over the past three years, Han vowed to make Taiwan safer and enable people to make more money if elected: Saying the 2020 elections will determine the island’s fate, Han urged the public not to “ask what your country can do for you, but ask what political party or politician you can elect for the country.”

The KMT announced earlier this month that Han won its closely fought presidential primary, which was based on the results of public opinion and phone surveys: He beat his closest challenger Terry Gou, the billionaire founder of iPhone assembler Foxconn, by a comfortable margin: China-friendly Han will run against the incumbent Tsai of the independence-leaning party Democratic Progressive Party, among other candidates: Han, the former head of Taipei’s wholesale fruit and vegetable markets, took the political world by surprise with his shock victory last November in the Kaohsiung mayoral election: Some attributed the result to “outside forces,” meaning China, while others believed Han did not so much win as the Democratic Progressive Party candidate lost: Others chalked up Han’s election victory in the DPP heartland to a combination of personal charisma and a skillfully crafted campaign strategy.

Han has said himself that he was merely a conduit for public frustration over the DPP’s neglect of Taiwan’s South, which has long suffered from poor economic prospects while the North boomed: KMT Chairman Wu Den-yih told the national congress that returning to power in January is not for the interests of the KMT or Han, but for those of Taiwan and the next generation: He set the goal of winning the presidential election and securing at least half of the seats up for grabs in the legislative election, which will be held concurrently in January: Some worry that fissures caused by the presidential primary might divide the party: All eyes are on Gou and former legislative speaker Wan Jin-ping.

Gou has been evasive about what his next move will be: Some in the party worry that he might run for president as an independent.

Wang, who had taken himself out of the primary, has vowed to “continue the race,” without elaborating: He has dismissed speculation of running as an independent.

In addition to finalising Han’s nomination, congress members also agreed to amend the party charter to decouple the position of the party chair from the presidency, allowing Wu to stay on the job if the KMT wins the presidential poll.

(BAHRAIN) JUST IN: Executes three men on Saturday for killing a police officer and an Imam Amnesty identified two as Ali al-Arab, Ahmed al-Malali, who were sentenced to death last year in a mass trial along with another 56 men convicted and given jail terms on “terrorism crimes” #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – July.27: Bahrain executed on Saturday three men convicted in two separate cases, one involving the killing of a police officer and the other the killing of a mosque imam, the public prosecutor said in a statement: Amnesty International identified two of the men as Ali Mohamed al-Arab and Ahmed Issa al-Malali, who were convicted of a series of offences including “forming and joining a terrorist group”, could be executed within 24 hours. While in custody the men were tortured by security officers including through electric shocks and beatings. Ali Mohamed al-Arab’s toenails were also ripped out: Ali al-Arab and Ahmed al-Malali, who were sentenced to death last year in a mass trial along with another 56 men convicted and given jail terms on “terrorism crimes”………..Alleging they were part of a terrorist cell trained to use heavy weapons and explosives, the court jailed 19 for life and 37 for terms of up to 15 years:

If the Bahraini authorities go through with these executions it would be an utterly shameful show of contempt for human rights.

Lynn Maalouf, Middle East Research Director at Amnesty International

The prosecutor’s statement, which did not identify any of the men, said two of them were convicted for crimes including using an assault rifle to kill a police officer in 2017, in attacks orchestrated by what it called Iran-based ringleaders.

Bahrain accuses mainly Shi’ite Iran of stoking militancy in the kingdom, which Tehran denies. Bahrain, a strategic island where the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet is based, has a Shi’ite Muslim majority population but is ruled by a Sunni royal family:

International rights groups including Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and a U.N. human rights expert had urged Bahrain on Friday to halt the execution of the two activists on the basis of confessions allegedly obtained through torture: “While in custody the men were tortured by security officers including through electric shocks and beatings. Ali Mohamed al-Arab’s toenails were also ripped out,” Amnesty International said in a statement: The authorities have denied accusations of torture and repressing the opposition, and say they are protecting national security from terrorists:

Mass trials became commonplace in Bahrain following a failed uprising in 2011 that was led by members of the Shi’ite opposition and scores of people have been imprisoned including politicians and human rights activists. Many others have fled abroad.

The third executed man was convicted of killing an imam in 2018: A London-based Bahraini activist rights group, the Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy (BIRD), said “the executions mark one of Bahrain’s darkest days”………….“It appears that the Bahraini government planned this meticulously, timing the executions to coincide with U.S., EU and UK legislative recesses in order to avoid international scrutiny,” BIRD’s Director Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei said in a statement sent to Reuters.

In London, a protester was arrested for trespassing on a diplomatic premises late on Friday after climbing on to the roof of Bahrain’s embassy, British police said: A video posted on YouTube showed the man unfurling a banner calling on new British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to intervene to stop the executions. It also showed emergency service officials breaking open the door of the embassy to gain access.
