Iraqi girl is reunited with her family three years after Isis kidnapping

A girl has been reunited with her family after being kidnapped by Isis three years ago. Iraqi security forces freed the almost six-year-old Christina Abada in west Mosul. Christina was taken from her Iraqi Christian family by an Isis fighter in August 2014. The family had been round up with other Christians when the militants captured Mosul. For the last three years the parents only heard rumours Christina was still alive. The girl appeared well looked after and was even wearing gold earrings. She seemed overwhelmed by the crowd gathered to greet her. Jun 10, 2017

Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull calls Melbourne siege shocking and cowardly terrorist act

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Tuesday (6 June) that police were treating a deadly siege in the southern city of Melbourne as an act of terrorism in which a gunman was killed. The Islamic State (Isis) militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the gunman was one of its soldiers. A day earlier, on Monday, the attacker, identified as Yacqub Khayre, 29, held a woman hostage inside an apartment building in Melbourne. While the hostage was rescued unharmed, three police officers suffered injuries when they engaged in a firefight with Khayre. The attacker was shot dead by police. A man was found dead in the foyer of the building where Khayre held the woman against her will. Jun 6, 2017
