I see Islamists have attacked a hotel in Manila, Philippines now. The resident Islamist apologist that lives on a small island there and lives on this forum will No doubt try to blame American troops for this too.
From what I've read it was a lone armed robbery on a casino, that he fired shots in the air etc. and the only person directly injured or dead is himself, other injuries were caused by smoke inhalation or getting caught in the stampede to get out of the place, it wasn't a terrorist attack.
The smoke inhalation claimed 36 fatalities, the guy was stealing gambling chips:
The victims, who were discovered on Friday morning, did not appear to have been shot, but were suffocated in the chaos as guests and staff tried flee the choking smoke from a fire, said Bureau of Fire Protection official Tomas Apolinario. A further 54 were injured, some seriously.
The lone gunman, described as a Caucasian with a moustache, was among the dead, having committed suicide by setting himself on fire in one of the hotel guest rooms, the Philippines police said on Friday. His body was found burned beyond recognition, next to a machine gun.
The SITE monitoring service, which tracks white supremacist and jihadist activity online, said an Islamic State-linked Filipino operative who provides daily updates on the ongoing clashes in Marawi claimed "lone wolf soldiers" of the Islamic State group were responsible for the attack.
An English message by the operative was distributed across several pro-IS Telegram chat groups, SITE said. According to SITE, the message says the attacker intended to burn the casino because the activities inside were haram, or forbidden by Islam.
Well you have all the answers RB ... The asshole one minute claimed that I had pretenced to be a pilot, then that I have been a hotelier of some 30 years, yet now he asks me if I am a news reporter when he already has his own answer(s)!
Just tell him that my real name is Neil Armstrong and have done with it :)
Getting back to the subject in hand RB, and I'm catching up on things having been plagued with computer problems these past two weeks, regarding the most recent London attack from the point the armed police arrived on the scene 46 shots were fired by two different police forces within 6 seconds with all three attackers dead ... Now I'd suggest that's pretty good going!
Going back Ariana Grande has won over the hearts of Manchester, I wouldn't be surprised if they allow her the freedom of the city, having raised some GBP10m from a benefit concert that has, apparently, become the most watched UK TV programme of the year.
Meanwhile some gambling addict with debt and marital problems wreaked havok in a Manila complex for dickhead 'dcv' to suggest this was an Islamist attack whilst diverting attention away from the true Islamist attacks ... DICKHEAD! :)
