TDI Follow-Up

This week, a small community was stunned by a cold-hearted 15-year old alleged killer. And the world was stunned by a few cold-hearted homicide bombers in Jordan. TDI brought you the stories. Now, we return to them, giving you the latest updates. It’s TDI like you’ve never seen it before… Following up on a story! And believe it or not, we’re planning updates on one or more of the stories below for in the future. But that’s then… Right now, here’s your UPDATE:

Australian Terror Raid: When TDI told you about Australian authorities thwarting a terrorist plot, we had heard that only 15 people were arrested, and that the alleged terrorist were in the final stages of an attack. Now, up to 18 people have been arrested total. 10 have been charged with being members of a unspecified terrorist organization, and the other eight with conspiracy to plan a terrorist act. Both charges carry a possible life sentance. Additionally, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that the unnamed Islamic terrorist group had stockpiled enough chemicals to make at least 15 large bombs.

Jordan’s Black Wednesday: Jordan’s deputy premier says that there were three male homicide bombers, and no females. He also said that they were “non-Jordanian”, and belonged to al-Qaeda. The Abu Musab al-Zarqawi-led wing of Al-Qaeda recently claimed responsibility for the attacks. He referred to the attacks as Black Wednesday. Police are currently interrogating 12 suspected who are believed to be linked to the attacks, while “many others” currently detaied may soon be released. The official death toll is *at least* 57, and may not necessarily be the 67 that we quoted in our original post.

Quoting an AP article: Thousands of Jordanians have turned out for two days of protests to condemn al-Qaida in Iraq. With most of the bombing victims being Arabs and Muslims, Jordanians and many of the country’s Iraqi expatriates have condemned al-Qaida for turning their sights from U.S.-led occupation forces in Iraq onto fellow Muslims.

Among those killed is Syrian-born Hollywood filmmaker Mustapha Akkad and his daughter, Rima Akkad Monla. Akkad is most famous for the Halloween slasher films. Up to four more Americans were wounded, two seriously.

The Campbell School Shooting: First, I had some incorrect data in the original update… Kenny Bartley is 14, not 15, as previously reported. Friday night, Campbell County residents gathered at Martin Wilson Funeral Home in LaFollette. The lines streached down the block as friends and family arrived to pay their last respects to Ken Bruce.

Bruce, 48, was killed by Bartley on November 8. Jo Bruce, Ken’s wife, told WATE that “he didn’t become a hero at his death. He lived his life as a hero.” Students were allowed back in the school briefly on Friday to get their belongings. Bartley’s lawyer says that he is scheduled to be arraigned as early as Monday. Then, there will be a detention hearing, to determine if he’ll stay in custody. Then, a transfer hearing to decide if he will be tried as a juvenile or as an adult.

Meanwhile, the other two who were shot and wounded by Bartley (allegedly, we must say) are recovering. Their status has been upgraded from serious condition to stable.
