We don't want a bad guys and threat actors being able to get into places where they don't but what we've noticed is that there isn't as much of a focus or isn't as a thorough understanding of what frequently happens after The fact the where the cybercriminals have gained access to something so for example be a credit card information b be other types of information. How do they then monetize that isis. The cybercrime is called crime for reason. And that's because they're trying to gain Something financially from all of their hard work or the threat actors hard work so we decided to put together this report really detailing the various aspects Of the kind of what. I like to call the second half of the cycle After they've gained access to your credit card data your bank account data that kind of data. What are the new next. How do they actually make money From something like that curiel. Can you give us a little bit of a notion of where we stand today in terms of the the lay of the land the the kind of breadth and spectrum of what you all see when it comes to cybercrime so what we see. Is that cyber criminal. Fraud is is an ecosystem and it's pretty specialized we see that they're specialized vendors of different services. We see that they're a threat.

'The Stories Are Heartbreaking.' What 1 Reporter Witnessed In Mozambique's Violence

"Graphic violence. Kaba Delgado's were the poorest regions in Mozambique and was largely ignored by the central government. Into large reserves of oil and gas were discovered offshore. His international oil companies have moved into the area. Fighters have stepped up their attacks. Terrorizing Villagers, burning homes, destroying farms. And publicly beheading. Women and Children. But the government of Mozambique and trying to put down the movement is also implicated in the violence. Aid groups estimate that half a million people have fled their homes and are in urgent need of aid. Journalists are not usually granted access to the area. But nay Hewat occur accompanied it. Aid group to cover Delgado last November. And was able to speak to survivors joins us now. Thank you for being with us. Thank you so much for having me. What did they tell you? I mean, the stories are heartbreaking. We spoke with a 10 year old girl named Maria and she remembers the day that the Attackers came into her village. They started burning houses down, they started looting. Maria was separated from her family during the violence, and she told me that the Attackers forced her and the other Villagers to sit and watch as they beheaded. People that they had grown up with people that they knew. After she fled. She fled into the forest and her foot got caught in an animal trapped like a hunting snare. Eventually she was rescued and she was carried to Pemba, which is a southern city in the Kaaba Delgado province. And Maria recovered from her wounds, and she also had malaria in the local hospital. And that was when she discovered that both her mother and her father had been beheaded in that attack. You know, That's just one of the many, many stories that I heard while I was there, all of them with the same level of brutal and senseless violence. Who are the Attackers, or is there one answer to that? There are many answers to that. But I will try to give Ah general overview of how this developed from what we know, Um, outsiders. The countries that have been named have in Kenya, Tanzania. On brothers so outside influences came into the country and started preaching against the version of Islam that was practiced in cover Delgado at the time. And they began preaching radicalizing in the mosques up there. And I spoke with some civil society leaders who told me that you know there were folks in these mosques who told the government something is going on here. Something is going wrong and that Thies concerns were just not addressed urgently. By the government. And so what ended up happening is that you have a local population, primarily young men, primarily unemployed who hear this radical version of Islam, and that's how people say that this started And then if, of course, if you fast track it a few years in 2019 Isis, the Islamic state claimed credit for its first attack, and that really changed the dynamics. This went from being a kind of local issue of violence by you know citizens who were unhappy or felt left out or left behind. Becoming really an international geopolitical problem. And you know that brings us up to where we are today. Just just this week, the United States government Has classified the Islamic state Isis

Washington Capitals' Tom Wilson Receives 7 Game Suspension After Hitting Boston Bruins' Brandon Carlo

"Tom wilson's added again. The washington capitals rugged. Ford i was gonna call him tough guy but that was very tough thing. He did there recently against the boston. Bruins tom wilson has now been suspended for seven games for a hit against the boards on boston's brandon carlo. And it was well ugly in every way hit can be ugly. It was basically carlo up against the boards. Got the pocket and his skates. And wilson comes up and pretty much collides with the side of the guy's head and he left the game due to injury and It was just and it's not one of those deals where he can sort of. Give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Tom wilson continually runs into trouble with the nhl law and I mean these seven game. Suspensions four-game game suspensions the they just don't seem to be getting through to this guy. Now what did you think of him. There's no doubt in my mind that that he's lining up the guy's head okay whether shoulder right. That's the big hit right. That's the big hit when you when you leave the ice. Hers people incorrectly. See all the time. He left his feet. You know when he when he's leaving the isis the guys up against the boards. I think he's not even looking at him. Got his head down and this guy sort of lays into them with a shoulder to connect with his head. Okay so that's that's a terrible brutal disgusting dirty hidden hockey. Triple that stevie. When you're looking at the guys had up against the glass and you're gonna go smashing. You know like the guy the guys up the guys up against the boards and there's his his face might even be against the glass when he does it steve. It's just freaking heinous man idea. I thought i. That's what i thought when i looked out said that's like punching a guy down steve that's like punching a guy when his heads on the ice and you know as heads on the ice right. They don't do it right. You seldom see that right. The guy will pull up. What was the example. Last week was a beautiful example. The guy waving the linesmen and because he was going to use going to murder the kitty was fighting right. Yeah but this guy. I think he. He saw it from a mile away in terms of hockey speed. You know like you have a good two seconds there and tried to smash his head like a pumpkin into the glass. That's what i that's what i saw. Elsie the same. I mean and it's and it's this guy it's one of those deals where maybe i'm throwing around benefit of doubt of. It's somebody who's never done something like this before because it is a fast game and guys move the last second but there's nothing i can find here where i i can even begin to go down that road. A it's is tom wilson. You know if there's been a murder and there's a serial killer hanging around the scene of the crime. I'm gonna probably look his way and not given benefit of the doubt It's tom wilson and brandon. Carlo is totally stationary up against the boards. There was one today it was. Let's see. I think it was chicago in saint. Louis i wanna say and There was a big hit Behind the net and I mean it was one where he could look at and say okay. Well that's second go either way but this one was just. This is a guy. Carlos stationary against the boards. He didn't change direction. Didn't spin at the last second. He's totally still. And this guy had really his choice of where he wanted to hit him and He clearly chose get the the good. Maybe do the most damage knock this guy goofy. Get the puck and off. I go and intimidating. That's tom wilson's game. And so it's that's that's the frustrating part of it but more than that though it's hard for me to get to work out a budget anymore. Because the nhl at large doesn't seem to care that much y'all through a seven game suspension. Well this guy's been suspended repeatedly in the league and It doesn't seem to change anything for him and they don't ever seem to want to do something more fierce with this

But another part of that deal is that the Taliban has to sit down with the Afghan government to negotiate an end to this war. Sharing power and those assassinations that we're talking about began shortly after those talks began in September. Now we're talking about civil society. We're talking about silencing people who might be critical of the negotiations or critical. The Taliban, who frankly want to re impose restrictions on women in particular when they get back into power. It's important to say here that the Taliban deny responsibility, but activists say that doesn't mean they're innocent. It could be a local commanders acting with a wink and a nod. It could be their sympathizers. Or it could be local actors with vendettas taking advantage of the chaos, do

"isis" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Fellow at the Atlantic Council doing research on the Middle East based in Turkey where the government doesn't want to be anywhere near these members of Isis. This and lots of countries feel the same way except the United States. That's right the. US has taken its citizens. Back and president trump has repeatedly called on the Europeans to do the same and when it comes to the Europeans just mentioned quickly. The Europeans have been much more willing to consider taking back women and children but by and large by and large European countries have steadfastly refuse to accept foreign fighters back on its soil because of the dangers. They might pose to their societies because public opinion is so incredibly anti repatriation. And because because a lot of these these countries aren't necessarily able to guarantee that if they took back these fighters and put them in court that any evidence would hold up and allow these fighters to be jailed jailed. So a lot of them could end up being set free and that's a really scary thought for a lot of people in Europe. Why is it that European countries are finding it so hard to take back these isis members and their families wiz when the United States is happy to do so so there are two main reasons why the Europeans have been much more reluctant than the US to bring back their citizens than the the first one is simply numbers the US had far fewer fighters leave the country to go fight in Syria for Isis? And so the number birth people that have been repatriated have been much fewer than what the Europeans would have to repatriate. SO THAT'S I. The second major difference is that it's easier for us to deal with it. Because we have laws on the books that allow us to prosecute these fighters and give them harsher sentences than they would receive in many of these European countries for example so he someone hoop is tried and sentenced in the US and convicted and sentenced to twenty ears for example in Belgium or Germany earned the UK for the same thing could be sentenced to five years in Turkey at seven years and so one one of the main reasons why European countries are reluctant to take their citizens back. Is that even if they do find enough evidence to convict them in a court of law. The best case scenario is that they're in jail for less than ten years and then they come out and then they have to monitor them for the rest of their lives and that takes up a lot of resources and potentially puts a lot of people at risk in the eyes of the Europeans are all. These countries obligated to take Isis members under families back so that is such an important question. That really is the million dollar question. Is there a legal basis or a legal requirement government for these European countries to take their citizens back and the answer is very murky. So let me just try to explain the nuance when it comes to foreigners foreigners in Syria trying to go back to their country. There are two possibilities here right. One is if a European citizen WHO's in Syria is able to get to. Let's say Germany. Let's just use that as an example if they're able to get to Germany on their own and they show up at an airport in Germany or at the border then international law is very clear you have to let them in right the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for example. It says that I'm quoting here. Everyone everyone has the right to leave any country including his own and to return to his country. It's less clear if when it comes to active repatriation so a lot of these. In fact most of these European citizens are in Syria and they have no way of getting back to their countries right they have no L. Way of showing up at an embassy. And saying you know you need to help us because where your citizens but since those citizens are able to get to those embassies you know. They're in prisons camps in Syria. Then what the European countries are saying is that they are not obligated to proactively go into Syria especially remember that these European countries have cut diplomatic ties with Syria so they don't even have diplomatic relations with with that country anymore. So they're saying that we are under no oh obligation to go in and proactively take our citizens back especially that we don't actually consider them citizens anymore because they tore up their passports passports or they denounced their citizenship or participate in an act. That are really untypical. What it means to be a German citizen or a French French citizen Or anything like that. So so they don't even see them as really their responsibility. Okay but these members are in Syrian prisons. Now how being taken care of by Syrian democratic forces they would like to see them repatriated to countries like Denmark the Netherlands UK France. Germany is there the middle ground. Is there a third option. Well a bunch of them are being discussed right now with the Europeans have been discussing amongst one another but also so publicly and what the SDS has also Suggested is for an international tribunal to be held inside Syria in SDF held territory which is in the northeast And for those prisoners to be tried there another option that is being suggested is to have all of them sent Iraq and being tried there because Iraq is a an actual state and has institutions. That are you know at least on paper equipped to deal deal with this issue. Those are the two main options that are being discussed right now and of course. They both come with pros and cons and complications right. So for example for an international international tribunal. You have the question of well. Who would pay for it first of all Under what international law would you be trying these prisoners. One one of complicating factors in this conversation. Is that there is no internationally agreed upon definition of terrorism for example so it would have to be something like crimes against humanity right. But if you're trying someone for crimes against humanity you really have to have solid evidence for that because it's such a serious SECU station and there simply isn't enough evidence for most of these people to be convicted for crimes against humanity. A A lot of the evidence that's being used right now against them is for example they posted something on social media or there's a video of them sitting next to a corpse corpse or or there's an Isis document that lists their name but those examples and those cases are few and far between for most host of the prisoners that are being held in Syria right now. The evidence simply wouldn't really stand up in court is just it strikes me as strange that people are afraid to bring these terrorists back to the countries where they were born or were they have citizenship to try them in a court of law but they don't seem afraid right now that Syria may not have the infrastructure to maintain the prisons where they're being kept and that they're falling into this state of legal limbo and and could potentially just escape. You Know I. I know what you mean. An I can see how you think it's strange but when you think about it and when you think about politicians ends and policy makers in particular it's quite easy for them to to kind of imagine that this isn't going to be a big deal because it's not an immediate threat right like if you bring back people to Europe that is to them an immediate threat that they have to deal with but when you try to explain to them that listen listen if you leave them in Syria they might escape from prison. The Syrian regime might take control over the prisons and then use them to blackmail Europe. They could become more more radicalized and they could radicalize future generations. If they ever escape I mean. There are so many awful scenarios on the horizon if you think about just leaving them there but because it seems kind of far down the road that I think a lot of people convince themselves is that all but that's that's not really a threat. I mean that that might never happen. But are we risking having stateless militants floating from one conflict zone to another I mean. Isn't this how isis was formed in the first place. That's exactly right. I mean Isis grew out of al Qaeda in Iraq. I remember when I was working at the Department of Defense and I was working on the Syria file. I was the Syria country director. And I remember you know in the beginning of few few twenty eleven two thousand twelve when we first started seeing the first steady slow trickle of foreign fighters coming into Syria. And you could just tally. You knew that this was going to be bad. You knew that this was going to end well. But you had leadership across not just in the United States To be fair but but across Europe as well who worked convinced that this was going to be a manageable problem that you could contain this inside inside Syria and that It wasn't really worth kind of trying to game it out or do anything more more serious about it because because it could be contained and that's exactly what I see happening now You know the first time around. I mean you could fault. Leadership in all of these countries political leaders. Either way but you fall them. Fold them even more today because we we saw this before and we spent spent billions of dollars and put together an international coalition to defeat Isis. And we're leaving now and leaving behind thousands thousands of them in an uncertain fate. And we think everything's going to be okay. It's it's really it's just astounding. I don't WanNa fearmongering anything but are you saying that you know. There's the potential here for ISIS members. Who are in these prisons right now? Who are stuck in legal limbo to to regroup and form something newer and even worse than Isis? Is that what you're saying. I don't think it's fear mongering at all to say that I. I think that that is a very possible scenario. And I think people need to understand the gravity of the risk that we're facing right now in letting in these fighters kind of languish in Syria under the control of the SDF just since October ninth. Since the Turkish operation began in the northeast more than one hundred people with alleged links to isis have escaped. And that's just suck Tober ninth and there are eleven thousand thousand of them across makeshift prisons being guarded by a non-state actor that doesn't have the capacity to hold them indefinitely so it's not fear mongering at all it is a genuine an urgent threat and one of the ways to address that threat. And there's just no getting around. This is that the European countries that have citizens on the ground in Syria they have a moral humanitarian and a security based obligation to take back their citizens to relieve the burden off of the SDF and to help every country that is doing. Its part fight and defeat Isis right. Now it's it's a necessary step and I don't think European countries can can't deny that fact even if they choose not to do anything about it. Jasmine el.

"Hey this is today explained. I'm I'm Shawn Romney's firm last week. We did an episode about a law passed in California that would make classes start a little later so that kids could sleep a little more. I I started the episode by calling one of my oldest friends to talk to him about how we used to show up at seven. Am for zero period at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita California today shortly after that seven. Am Bell Rang for period. There was a shooting at Saugus high school. As these things things go. Not a lot is known yet as these things go at least two students have died and multiple students are in critical condition as these as things go. The shooter is in custody before we start the show today. I felt the need to say something about this. And this is just for me my opinion I refuse to accept that this is just how it goes that this is the cost of doing business in the United States that we can pass laws has to let kids sleep in a little more but not ones that actually prevent kids from being shot when they go to school. I think that's insane. This is not the world we were promised in zero period at seven in the morning. Back at Saugus High School John Williams foreign editor here. Vox yesterday you and I were in a room watching the impeachment hearings William Taylor George Kent and that whole time just a few blocks south of our office here. The president was having a very important meeting. Yeah so he was meeting with the President of Turkey His name is regional type. Airtime John or air to gone as trump incorrectly pronounce his name but he did a lot of people do. It's hard G. G. but like little the it's like in in Turkish that's different. CCA Air to one. We're grateful to President Ertegun and to the citizens of Turkey for their cooperation now. But this isn't just a visit from like Justin Intruder. This is a big deal because the president recently withdrew troops out of Syria and Turkey stepped in right so the US and Turkey have been in a bit of a tiff lately. over a few things so it mostly kicked off with trump and this phone call. He had with air to one a few weeks ago in which he essentially agreed to pull. US US troops out of northeastern Syria. We WanNA bring our troops back home. It's been many many years. It's been decades in many cases. We WanNA bring our troops oops SPEC home and the. US was working with the Syrian Democratic Forces. The Kurdish back forces. We have been partnered for several years fighting. Isis air. John Really. He does not like those Syrian. Kurdish forces considers terrorists and has wanted for a long time to basically launch military incursion. Kick them out of the area get them away from his border And create what. He's calling a safe zone. So trump polls these troops out Turkey. Syria let them take care of it. Let them take care of it. Turkey launches incursion the Turkish military unleashed an onslaught of artillery and airstrikes targeting. The Syrian town of Roselyne trump administration is suddenly like. Hey how dare you launch this incursion. Even though we totally knew that was gonNA happen. I've told Turkey that if they do anything outside of what. Aw We would think is humane to use the word. Second Time we talk about Hong Kong. We talk about this They could suffer. The wrath of an extremely decimated committed economy vice president Mike Pence when over to try to make a deal with Turkey and the Kurds and try to basically get the ceasefire put in place. That's kind of where we are now. So the ceasefire has not totally holding their reports of war crimes being committed by the Turkish backed forces in the area. they're still sporadic fighting on the ground. We are about a mile away from the Turkey Syria border. And we've been hearing fighting the sounds of mortar fire automatic weapons as well as grenades not exactly the sounds. You'd expect up to here during a successful ceasefire a ceasefire with this decision to pull out troops from Syria and to let Turkey step in seemed to anger Republicans. The president's allies far more than anything to do with what happened to Ukraine this impeachment increase. How come so cute things first? We essentially abandoned our Syrian in Kurdish allies. We've been fighting alongside In the fight against Isis and to. WHO's going to deal with Isis? Now now. So the Syrian Kurdish forces that again we were allied with for years fought Isis and they captured a lot of Isis fighters and family members lives children of Isis. They've put up all these basically ad hoc prisons There are thousands of Isis fighters and their family being held by the Syrian Democratic Forces. The Kurdish I back forces when Turkey came in and ran the. STF The Syrian Kurds out of that region. It was like well. What the Hell who's GonNa Watch over these prisons? What's going on With all these fighters like is it now. Turkey's responsibility. Do they even care. There was a prison break. Some Isis fighters and family members of ISIS Escaped the God showed us. This attempted prison break from four days ago. They pull the door off its hinges and they charge even further. Oh the down the corridor and now it's like complete chaos. It's been over a month since the president made this decision and started executing it. What are the conditions right now in these prisons where members of Isis are being held? So these are loosely ad hoc prisons right there like schools and government buildings that they just took over and converted and made into makeshift prisons ends. Where a lot of the prisoners are sleeping on mattresses on the floor cells jammed with thousands of isis foreign fighters countries including person Franz Belgium? The America captured in the Guzzo earlier. This year. Now crump together in prison conditions more reminiscent of concentration comes. There's hardly even room to move around owned super overcrowded. There also these camps One in particular has like something. Like seventy thousand. It's called and hoad account camp that sprung from nowhere now the size of a small town most of the people there are family members so wives and children of Isis. They're also like actual isis fighters thousands of them also in this camp aid organizations. Say It is not too late to save the children of is militants but if nothing changes they say this humanitarian crisis could turn in to a security disaster and it's basically just surrounded by like a rusty chain link fence that's not super secure for basically rounding up people off the battlefield battlefield and putting them places wherever we can find place to stick them and there's no real like accountability. There's no real like accounting of how many people are there so it's kind of a black box which is really scary.

"Interesting. I was listening to a chap from the pharmaceutical industry because medicines in particular is something that that lot of ordinary people are quite concerned about whether they're going to get their medicine on time. They've talked about people with diabetes for example that their insulin might be at delayed and one chap from the pharmaceutical industry said it might actually be an issue with the industry's themselves and the port and all of that it might be led by the public where the public becomes so fearful of not getting their hands on the medicine based start stockpiling and that naturally leads to a shortage of medicine so this kind of fear grows and create greater fear among the general public worsens. The situation has prime minister boris. Johnson himself responded yet to this league. He didn't quite get into the specifics office bovis. He just said today that the government was preparing for a no deals scenario that we would believing on october thirty first deal or no deal but it may not be as smooth road ahead. Were very confident that <hes> it by october. The thirty first we will be ready and that's the crucial thing. I think people people won't know people are very confident themselves that they can do it. I'm not pretending that there will be bumps on the road that will be said that on on the steps suit donning street but if everybody puts them minds to it. I have absolutely no doubt that we can get ready and of course the g seven summit is happening later this week and boris johnson will meet with other leaders for the first time there i mean is he expected to get some blowback about this well. I'm sure he will. He said that he would talk to them about other issues other than brags that but i can only imagine that <hes> for most people they want to know what was said about brags artist. It is his first time. I'm missing other e._u. Leaders aids taken him this length of time which is unusual usually when you have a u._k. Prime minister starting out an office there will be some early trips to meet other you leaders it hasn't happened and the optics are quite obvious that he didn't want to be seen to be meeting with them because he had nothing to offer offer and they by all accounts have very little to offer him. He was saying today that he's confident the e._u. Has shifted its position on the backstop and that there will be eaten and negotiations et cetera taking place the e._u.

"Many thanks for that uh chris um bruce says that the president's decision to invoke the authorisation of the use of military force against alqaeda after nine eleven can't plausibly be applied to isis because license and alqaeda are at odds wide did president obama conclude that the post nine eleven resolution was illegitimate authorization for the war against isis there are thanks jeff i think it is to step back a little bit on that question so isis um the us has was engaged in hostilities against alqaida in iraq from the about two thousand three to doesn't scored two thousand eleven i think that there is far as i am aware there was never really much of a um much legal uh was a legal question raised about those hostilities and there is any instead of interreg them wind was as much wasn't which actually for the us in our cut in iraq but again into doesn't fourteen because of the rise of isis the us resumed hostilities in in isis is basically successor group to alkai in iraq so i demonstration thought they were too statutory legal dc's so the use of force against uh isis at a time known as ice all when we started hostilities in iraq and syria so i i would uh divert does differ from predecessor arguments saying was unilateral action i think the the president leaves his actions work with the endorsement of congress which is why the sixty day on our vision and the work hours resolution was not implicated in those two series or one under the two thousand one a amassed an embassy areas and in the administration in an interpretation of that a amac endorsed by both the congress and the courts aesthetic covers alqaeda the taliban associates forces the view is that.
