Missing girl found safe on beach

A 14-year-old girl who went missing with her boyfriend after meeting him on a social networking website has been found safe and well, police said.

Lincolnshire Police said Clare Haver was located on a beach in Norfolk, after sightings at nearby campsites.

Clare, from Bourne, Lincolnshire, went missing on 25 July after returning from a camping trip in Skegness.

A police spokesman said a 23-year-old man had been arrested and was helping officers with their inquiries. During the search for her, Clare’s family had made a public appeal for her to contact them.

She was located by police following sightings at campsites in the villages of Happisburgh and Bacton on the Norfolk coast.

Nigeria: Scores die after battle with militants

As many as 150 people may have been killed as Islamic militants battled Nigerian government police and troops Sunday and Monday in the north-central part of the nation, officials said.

Police and troops were dispatched to the militants’ hideouts after militants began attacks on government establishments early Sunday, said police spokesman Moses Anegbode.

As authorities exchanged fire with the militants, 41 people, including a soldier and a policeman, were killed, Anegbode said. In addition, some 176 people were arrested in Bauchi, he said. Besides Bauchi, militants also staged attacks on the nearby states of Yobe and Borno on Sunday and Monday, said Emmanuel Ojukwu, spokesman for the national police.

Yobe police Commissioner Alhaji Muhammed Abbas said that 23 suspected militants were arrested in connection with a bomb attack in at a police station in Potiskum that killed a policeman and a civilian and wounded seven more.

The official News Agency of Nigeria reported that as many as 100 members of a religious sect led by Sheikh Mohammed Yusuf may have been killed in a confrontation with police. In Borno, police spokesman Isa Azare said that two policemen were killed in an attack on police headquarters late Monday.

“The religious fanatics took the police unawares,” Azare told the government-affiliated New Nigerian newspaper. “That was why they succeeded in killing all the officers on night duty.”

Panicked residents stayed inside in all three states, and businesses shut down, but officials said the situation was under control. The militants used guns, bows and arrows and machetes in the attacks, officials said.

The militants disagree with the government’s teaching of Islam in the region, maintaining that the government allows itself to be influenced by Western values, and have been attacking government establishments and Islamic clergy.

There is a history of religious violence in central Nigeria, where majority-Muslim north Africa meets largely Christian sub-Saharan Africa. Human Rights Watch estimates that more than 1,000 people were killed in riots in 2001.

The human rights organization alleged last week that police and soldiers killed at least 133 people during two days of riots between Muslims and Christians in Nigeria last year.

Most of the victims were young Muslim men, often unarmed, the group charged in testimony before a state commission examining the riots and in a separate report. More than 700 people died in the violence, the group said, citing local religious authorities on both sides of the divide.

1st funeral held for Jakarta bomb victims

1st funeral held for Jakarta bomb victims

The first of the Jakarta hotel bombings’ seven victims was buried Monday — just days after he again became a father.

The wife of 38-year-old Evert Mocodompis could not attend his funeral because she gave birth to their second child the day before he was killed, local media reported.

He died while working in the restaurant of the J.W. Marriott hotel on Friday. Family and friends sang hymns and tossed flowers on his grave.

Police continued to piece together bomb fragments, body parts and other clues gathered from the Marriott and the Ritz-Carlton, which was bombed within minutes of Friday’s first blast.

Police have said explosive material recovered at the hotels is “identical” to that used by the Southeast Asian terrorist network Jemaah Islamiyah in earlier attacks.

An unexploded bomb left in a room of the Marriott resembled devices used in attacks on Bali and one found in a recent raid against the network on an Islamic boarding school in Central Java, national police spokesman told a news conference Sunday.

The culprits in Friday’s attacks that killed seven and wounded 50 are believed to have belonged to Jemaah Islamiyah “because there are similarities in the bombs used,” Maj. Gen. Nanan Sukarna said.
