Khairi Saadallah, a Libyan refugee, pleaded guilty to three counts of murder after killing James Furlong, David Wails and Joseph Ritchie-Bennett in Forbury Gardens on 20 June last year.

In his sentencing remarks, Mr Justice Sweeney said he was sure that Saadallah had been trained to fight for the extremist group Ansar al Sharia in Libya – and had lied about his role in the group when he applied for asylum in the UK. The judge said the knife Saadallah bought for the attack “Was chosen with care to ensure the maximum likelihood of swift fatal injury each time it was used”.

Just 10 days after leaving prison in June last year, Saadallah searched online for “Is corona a sign of the end of the world?” and looked at images of people sitting around Forbury Gardens, where he would later launch his attack.

38% of LGBT in Japan people sexually harassed or assaulted: survey. : worldnews

This is the best I can do. original reduced by 76%. (I am a bot)

Nearly 40 percent of people with sexual minorities in Japan have been sexually molested or assaulted. A private poll of more than 10,000 respondents found that on Saturday.

Hidaka said many more cases are likely to remain unknown as LGBT people have sometimes been denied help by police or counseling centers and due to a lack of adequate support in the country where LGBT people have not been sufficiently deeply understood.

By type of sexual minority, 69 or 57 percent of transgender people who identify as women said they were victims of such an action, followed by transgender people who identify as men with 95 or 51.9 percent, and lesbians with 338 or 52.2 percent according to the research.
