FAM global monitor security briefings

  Turkey
Turkish police clashed with people gathering at a border gate to welcome Iraqi Kurdish fighters bound for the flashpoint Syrian town of Kobani to fight the ISIL terrorists. Late on Tuesday, Turkish security forces fired teargas to disperse people gathering at Turkish-Iraqi border crossing of Habur, where a military convoy of Iraq's Kurdistan Regional Government forces, known as Peshmerga, should bypass to enter Syria. The clashes occurred despite the fact that Ankara said it would allow the Peshmerga to enter Kobani through the Turkish border.

FAM global monitor security briefings

  Germany
Radical Islam poses a critical security threat to Germany, Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere warned on Tuesday, saying the number of people capable of staging attacks in the country stood at an all-time high. Besides the risk posed by German jihadists returning from Syria, there is also the danger of violent clashes on German streets as rival extremist groups turn on each other – mirroring the conflicts of the Middle East. De Maiziere said security forces believed the greatest danger came from radicals striking out alone, as occurred in Canada last week, when two soldiers were killed in attacks that police said were carried out by recent converts to Islam.

  United Kingdom
Four members of an Indian family, including two teenage girls, were found murdered at their house in Bradford. West Yorkshire Police have confirmed that a murder investigation has been launched following the discovery of four bodies at a detached property on Blackberry Way in the Clayton area. Police were called to the house on Monday night at 8:31 pm following concerns from a neighbor, who had not seen the family for some time.

AFRICA
Clusters of thunderstorms with max tops to 49,000 feet can be expected over the central portion of the continent. A cold front pushing into southern portions of South Africa will produce rain showers along with occasional, moderate low-level turbulence. A 120-knot jet core at 37,000 feet extends from west to east just off the coast of South Africa and will produce occasional, moderate turbulence.

ASIA
Clusters of thunderstorms with max tops to 49,000 feet can be expected over the central portion of the continent. A cold front pushing into southern portions of South Africa will produce rain showers along with occasional, moderate low-level turbulence.

Low pressure centered over the Kamchatka Peninsula and its associated cold front will produce rain and snow along with occasional, moderate low-level turbulence. Another storm system centered near the Aleutians will produce mostly rain along with strong winds resulting in occasional, moderate low-level turbulence. A weak area of low pressure over the central North Pacific will produce a small area of isolated thunderstorms with max tops to 45,000 feet. A large storm system centered just off the southeast coast of Alaska will produce widespread rain along the coast changing to snow farther inland. The tail end of the associated cold front will produce isolated thunderstorms with max tops to 44,000 feet just north of the Hawaiian Islands. A 100-knot jet core at 33,000 feet extends from west to east just south of the Kamchatka Peninsula.

A weak tropical wave will produce an area of enhanced thunderstorms with max tops to 48,000 feet over the southwestern North Atlantic. Deep low pressure centered southwest of Iceland will produce occasional rain and snow showers, mainly over the northern portion of the island. The associated cold front will be pushing into the western U.K. accompanied by a few showers. Occasional, moderate low-level turbulence can be expected behind the front. High pressure over central and Eastern Europe will result in the development of widespread dense fog, especially at night. A cold front pushing across western Russia will produce occasional rain and snow showers. The associated area of low pressure will produce mainly snow across portions of northern Russia. High pressure will dominate a large part of eastern Russia resulting in more nighttime and early morning fog. A 120-knot jet core at 35,000 feet extends from the Canadian Maritimes eastward into the central North Atlantic and will produce occasional, moderate turbulence. Another jet core, also at 35,000 feet, will extend from south to north across the western U.K. Occasional, moderate turbulence is also likely with this feature. A 120-knot jet core at 33,000 feet extends from western Scandinavia southeastward into central Europe.
