U.S. to ISIS: ‘Unconditionally Surrender’ or ‘Die’

Fresh on the heels of the Las Vegas shooting that ISIS insists was their doing, the US vows to destroy it. Even if it loses all its territory, of course, there will still be Muslims around the world who believe in ISIS and will still commit mass murder for Islam.

“US To ISIS: Unconditionally Surrender Or Die,” by Jonah Bennett, Daily Caller News Foundation, October 11, 2017 (thanks to Todd):

The U.S. is refusing to accept any negotiated withdrawal of Islamic State fighters from the terror group’s capital in Syria and will only accept complete, unconditional surrender.

In a statement Wednesday, the U.S.-led coalition in the fight against ISIS said it would not accept a negotiated withdrawal of ISIS fighters out of Raqqa, even as the coalition is trying to evacuate 4,000 civilians out of the city, The Associated Press reports.

Instead, Army spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon said the coalition discussions about what will happen to the remaining 300-400 ISIS fighters in about 1.5 square miles of the city have all centered around “unconditional surrender.”

For the coalition, negotiated withdrawal “is absolutely something that we as a coalition would not be a part of or agree with.”

The coalition believes the militants use the city’s hospital as their main headquarters and the stadium to store weapons.

So far, just 15 fighters over the last several weeks have surrendered.

In preparation to evacuate civilians from the cit,y coalition airstrikes have died down to a slow pace.

Over the past week, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces wrested control of 40 blocks from ISIS. About 85 percent of the city is now estimated clear….

21-year-old Muslim Habibullah Ahmad savagely beats 75-year-old woman in ‘most severe beating I’ve seen’

“This is not just another assault…This is maybe representing a new, dark side of Windsor that we can’t let propagate.”

Indeed. But it is propagating, and will continue to propagate. Justin Trudeau, stand up and take a bow.

The Qur’an says “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (47:4). Instead, Habibullah Ahmad left Sara Anne Widholm with “multiple brain hemorrhages, a blood clot on the surface of her brain that was immediately threatening her life, extensive skull fractures, fractured vertebrae in her neck, a lacerated scalp, and a badly bruised face.” He must be a moderate.

“Unprovoked attack on 75-year-old woman ‘the most severe beating I’ve seen,’ says Windsor surgeon,” by Dalson Chen, Windsor Star, October 11, 2017 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):

The shocking weekend assault of a 75-year-old woman left her with head injuries so terrible that the surgeon who treated her says they’re among the worst he’s seen in his medical career in Windsor.

“In my 12 years in Windsor, this is the most severe beating I’ve seen,” said Dr. Balraj Jhawar, a neurosurgeon at the Ouellette Campus of Windsor Regional Hospital.

Sara Anne Widholm, a grandmother and Riverside resident, remained in critical condition Tuesday afternoon.

She has not awakened since she was found unconscious and battered on the Ganatchio Trail east of Riverdale Avenue and Little River on Sunday morning.

Speaking to the Star with the permission of Widholm’s family, Jhawar detailed a long list of damage.

She was brought to the hospital suffering from multiple brain hemorrhages, a blood clot on the surface of her brain that was immediately threatening her life, extensive skull fractures, fractured vertebrae in her neck, a lacerated scalp, and a badly bruised face.

“The worst skull fractures I’ve seen in my 12 years here in Windsor,” Jhawar repeated.

“I’ve submitted pictures to Windsor police. This is among the most brutal things I’ve seen in my career. … Her eyes were so bruised, they were swollen shut.”…

Windsor police are acknowledging the extreme nature of this unprovoked assault in a popular park area.

“This was, without a doubt, a vicious, vicious attack,” Windsor police spokesman Sgt. Steve Betteridge said Tuesday.

“It’s very alarming to see an attack of this nature, at that time of day, at that location.”

Windsor resident Habibullah Ahmad, 21, who goes by the first name Daniel, has been charged with one count of aggravated assault. He remained in custody at press time.

Aggravated assault is an indictable offence under the Criminal Code of Canada. It carries a maximum penalty of 14 years imprisonment.

It isn’t yet clear what led to the one-sided altercation. Police said Tuesday that the incident “appears to be random in nature.”…

“For all of us who live here in Windsor, we can’t tolerate this. This is not just another assault,” Jhawar said.

“This is concerning to me. This is maybe representing a new, dark side of Windsor that we can’t let propagate.”…

Trump wants tighter security on northern border after Edmonton jihadi evaded deportation by fleeing to Canada

“Mr. Sharif was arrested in San Diego in July of 2011 and ordered deported to Somalia by a judge later that year. He was then released, failed to report for his deportation and could not be located by U.S. authorities after January, 2012. U.S. authorities have said that Mr. Sharif had no known criminal history at the time. Mr. Sharif subsequently arrived in Canada and received refugee status. He now stands accused of stabbing a police officer outside a football game at Commonwealth Stadium on Sept. 30 and running down pedestrians in a truck during a later chase.”

And anyone who may have supported his deportation at the time would have been denounced as a racist, bigoted “Islamophobe.”

Abdulahi Hasan Sharif

“Trump administration cites Edmonton attack in call for immigration changes,” by Adrian Morrow, Globe and Mail, October 8, 2017:

The Trump administration wants to change the immigration rules that allowed a man accused of perpetrating a terrorist attack in Edmonton last month to evade a U.S. deportation order years ago and come to Canada.

The White House also wants to tighten security along the U.S. border with Canada as part of a plan to toughen immigration controls across the country.

One administration official cited the case of Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, 30, Sunday evening as President Donald Trump sent Congress a set of border-security and immigration changes he wants passed.

Mr. Sharif was arrested in San Diego in July of 2011 and ordered deported to Somalia by a judge later that year. He was then released, failed to report for his deportation and could not be located by U.S. authorities after January, 2012. U.S. authorities have said that Mr. Sharif had no known criminal history at the time.

Mr. Sharif subsequently arrived in Canada and received refugee status. He now stands accused of stabbing a police officer outside a football game at Commonwealth Stadium on Sept. 30 and running down pedestrians in a truck during a later chase.

The administration official said Sunday that Mr. Sharif was released in 2011 because authorities were having trouble deporting him, as Somalia at the time was not repatriating its citizens. The official said the administration wants to “address” this problem.

In his message to Congress, Mr. Trump called for new rules that would “end the practice of catch-and-release” and give Immigration and Customs Enforcement more power to keep prospective deportees in custody until they are removed from the country. Part of the problem, the President wrote, was a 2001 Supreme Court decision that prevents authorities from detaining people for more than 180 days if there is no imminent prospect for their deportation….

Saudi Arabia claims to have fired “thousands” of “extremist” imams

Canada: 21-year-old Muslim man savagely beats 75-year-old woman in “random” assault, “most severe beating I’ve seen”

Rapists and wife-beaters flocked to join ISIS

Of course. Islam justifies both.

A hadith depicts Muhammad saying:

“If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460).

Another hadith attributes this to Muhammad:

“By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel’s saddle” (Ibn Majah 1854).

The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

As as for wife-beating:

“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” — Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127)

“Rapists and wife-beaters flocked to join ISIS because the group’s systemised sexual violence appealed to them, study shows,” by Iain Burns, Mailonline, October 9, 2017 (thanks to Robert):

A new study has shown that many men with a history of sexual violence and domestic abuse joined ISIS because of the group’s use of slavery and rape.

The Henry Jackson Society report claims the sanctioning of systemic sexual abuse served as a way of ‘attracting, retaining, mobilising and rewarding fighters’.

It was also used as a means of delivering cruel punishment to ‘kafir’ – non-Muslims – and as a form of terrorism.

With slavery and rape given Islamic justification by the depraved group’s theologians, sexual exploitation was also used as a way of raising cash for the caliphate.

The study shows many ISIS fighters from the US and Europe had a background of abusing women, which implies a relationship between ‘committing terrorist attacks and having a history of physical and/or sexual violence’.

One infamous jihadist described as key in the savage persecution of non-Muslims in ISIS territory is the Briton Siddhartha Dhar.

The father-of-four, once a bouncy castle salesman in Walthamstow, is said to have even enslaved some Yazidi women and girls himself and regularly taken part in trafficking.

The Yazidis, deemed by ISIS to be ‘pagans’ that can be raped and enslaved without consequence, have provided much of the supply of women and girls for the group.

According to the report, the prospect of having unlimited access to women was intentionally advertised to attract men from conservative Islamic societies where casual sex is prohibited.

The group also sanctioned forced conversions and pregnancies after women were enslaved or abused as a means of adding to the ranks of the extremist cult.

Another Briton with a history of sexual violence – Ondogo Ahmed, from London, who was jailed for eight years after raping a 16-year-old girl – joined the group in 2013.

He fled to the caliphate in Syria when out of prison on licence.

Nikita Malik, the author of the report, was quoted in The Guardian as saying: ‘These cases indicate an existence of a type of terrorism that is sexually motivated, in which individuals with prior records of sexual violence are attracted by the sexual brutality carried out by members of Islamic State.’

Other men with a past of domestic or sexual abuse include London Bridge murderer Rachid Redouane and Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood….

64% increase in violent Islamists in Germany in one year, now over 1,800

And the number is only going to continue to grow, thanks to Angela Merkel, destroyer of Germany, and all the good multiculturalists who reelected her.

“Number of Violent Jihadists in Germany up 64 Per Cent to over 1,800,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, October 6, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The German Federal Agency for the Protection of the Constitution, the country’s domestic intelligence service, claims there are now more than 1,800 violent jihadists in the country and the number continues to grow.

President of the domestic spy agency Hans-Georg Maassen announced the figures at a press conference on Thursday at the Bundestag in Berlin. He also warned of a growing trend in German primary schools which are seeing a rise in the popularity of radical Islamic ideas amongst students, Kronen Zeitung reports.

The number of violent jihadis is a dramatic increase compared to August of last year when the intelligence agency said they suspected there were 1,100 jihadists in the country, reflecting a 64 per cent increase.

The number of radical Islamic believers, also known as Salafists, has also climbed to over 10,000 and is still the fastest growing sect of Islam in Germany.

One of the major developments over the past year has been a rise in radicalisation amongst children in primary schools across the country. Teachers in schools have come forward claiming that their students exhibited signs of Islamic radicalism filling up extremist hotlines put in place by the government.

The average age of radicalisation has gone down as well, from 20 to only 18-years-old.

Last year Wolfgang Trusheim, head of the Frankfurt state police, warned of radicalismamongst young children of Islamic extremists calling them “hate children”.

Islamic radicalisation expert Florian Endres, who works for the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), said the phenomena is very new. “Most children get their socialisation from a Salafistic environment – that is, the parents themselves are already radicalised,” he said….

The rise in Islamic extremism in schools has also been linked by some to the growing number of anti-Semitic incidents in cities like Berlin where “you Jew!” has become a common insult on school playgrounds.

‘Allahu Akbar’ scrawled on Jewish home, 10-year-old Jewish girl beaten by classmates

It’s very likely that those classmates were also adherents of the Religion of Peace. Jews have not had this kind of trouble in France since World War II, until this period of massive Muslim immigration.

The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“French girl hospitalized following classmates’ antisemitic attack,” JTA, October 7, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A 10-year-old girl was assaulted by her classmates and the home of a family was daubed with racist graffiti in two Paris-area incidents deemed antisemitic.

The alleged assault was reported to France’s ministry of education by the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism, or BNVCA, the watchdog group wrote in a statement on its website Tuesday.  Separately, the same group reported that unidentified individuals on Wednesday wrote antisemitic slogans on the side of a home belonging to Jewish family in the eastern suburb of Noisy le Grand.

The mother of the girl who allegedly was assaulted, identified by BNVCA only as Ness, complained to police recently that a group of classmates of her daughter in the public school which she attends in Paris’ 18th district beat her on multiple occasions, often occurring day after day, only because she is Jewish. After one beating, Ness was brought to hospital with a visible contusion to her stomach and ribcage, the report said, requiring 10 days of recovery.

The child will be transferred to a different school, BNVCA wrote.

According to Francis Kalifat, the president of the CRIF federation of Jewish communities of France, antisemitic harassment has made public schools unsafe for Jews, leading to a sharp drop in the number of Jews attending them. In the past, a third of Jewish parents enrolled their children to public schools but now “no one does it,” he told JTA last year.

In the incident involving antisemitic graffiti, BNVCA said it was part of a campaign of intimidation against the family that owns the building targeted.

This time, they wrote “screw the shitty Jews, death to Jews, long live Palestine.” In recent years, the same family found in their mailbox an envelope featuring the words “Allah hu akbar” – Arabic for Allah is the greatest — with 9-milimeter bullets inside. They later received another envelope with a bullet for an AK-47 assault rifle and the words: “The next one is for you.”

The family is afraid to live in their home, wrote BNVCA, which complained to police about the incidents committed against the family and called on authorities to apprehend the culprits….

ISIS video claims Las Vegas revenge for attack on the caliphate

Gareth Davies for MailOnline reports:

Islamic State has released a new video bragging that the Las Vegas massacre was revenge for US attacks against their caliphate.

In what appears to be a desperate publicity stunt, the terror group claimed the horrific acts of Stephen Paddock, 64, were down to them, saying they radicalised him months before he shot 58 people dead and injured 527 more on Sunday night. He then committed suicide.

FBI officials rubbished the claims, saying he had no affiliation to any terrorist organisations, but the Islamic extremists took to their propaganda news agencies to spread the word.

Marine Le Pen calls for anti-terror law that ‘truly combats the Islamist ideology that has planned our enslavement’

In the wake of the Marseille jihadist attack Saturday, French politician Marine Le Pen has called for anti-terrorist legislation that directly combats Islamist ideology, which “wages war” on the West and seeks “our enslavement.”

Le Pen also pointed out that “security is the first duty of state.” Unfortunately, this duty has been virtually abandoned in favor of irresponsible immigration policies, loose border controls and the failure of authorities to crack down on the jihad ideology.

Thus far, Western authorities have focused entirely on the violent aspect of jihad and ignored the ideology that fuels it.

Marine Le Pen

“Le Pen Calls for Tough Anti-Terror Law in France, Islamism Seeks ‘to Enslave Us’” by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, October 4, 2017:

In the wake of the Marseille jihadist attack Saturday, French politician Marine Le Pen has called for anti-terrorist legislation that directly combats Islamist ideology, which “wages war” on the West and seeks “our enslavement.”

As the French Parliament debates a new anti-terror bill put forward by the Ministry of the Interior, the President of the National Front Party, Marine Le Pen, has labeled the proposed legislation “shameful” for its lack of teeth, calling instead for a “great anti-terrorist law,” which would recognize a terrorist act as “an act of war,” and which “truly combats the Islamist ideology that has planned our enslavement.”

On Saturday, an illegal Tunisian immigrant allegedly stabbed two young women to death in Marseille while shouting “Allahu Akbar” (god is greater), in a terrorist act claimed by the Islamic State jihadist group.

The man’s victims were two cousins in their twenties, one of whom he killed by slitting her throat with a knife. This is the latest instance of a long string of jihadist terror acts perpetrated throughout the French Republic in the last months.

According to the Paris-based Center for the Analysis of Terrorism, France is the Islamic State’s number-one target in the West, and with some 30 percent of Islamic State foreign attacks taking place on French soil.

During a press conference Tuesday morning, Le Pen sharply criticized the existing proposal, insisting that Islamic terrorism must be called by its name and treated as the menace it is.

Later, Le Pen quoted herself on Twitter, noting: “The Islamist ideology is a political-religious ideology that has planned our enslavement and wages war on us.”

“We must never get used to terrorism,” Le Pen told reporters, adding that “security is the first duty of a state.”

During her address, Le Pen called for the “systematic expulsion of foreign delinquents” and more generally to facilitate the deportation of foreigners in irregular situations.

“Terrorist organizations take advantage of European weakness,” she said……

ISIS insists Las Vegas was jihad, says shooter converted to Islam six months ago

Most people believe the Islamic State is lying in claiming any connection to this, and that Paddock was not a convert to Islam. But ISIS continues to claim the attack anyway, and does not have a history of claiming credit for attacks for which they were not responsible. Maybe they’ve started doing so now. Maybe not. They don’t seem to be afraid that Stephen Paddock will turn out to be a white supremacist neo-Nazi or some such. They don’t seem to be worried about being definitively exposed as grandiose liars.

“New ISIS Infographic on Vegas Shooting Claims Paddock Converted Six Months Ago,” by Bridget Johnson, PJ Media, October 5, 2017:

The Islamic State continued insisting that they have a connection to Sunday night’s massacre in Las Vegas with the publication of an infographic about the crime filling the second page of their 16-page weekly newsletter.

Today’s release marks the 100th issue of al-Naba, which is distributed in ISIS territories and online via mediums such as Telegram and social media as a PDF.

ISIS claimed through their Amaq news agency Monday morning that the “Las Vegas attacker is a soldier of the Islamic State who carried out the attack in response to calls for targeting coalition countries.” They claimed he had converted to Islam recently.

In the new al-Naba issue, the terror group claims Stephen Paddock converted to Islam six months ago.

ISIS persisted in its full-court press effort to claim responsibility for the attack after the Amaq news agency claim with their official Nashir channel and affiliated al-Batar Media Foundation all insisting Paddock acted on behalf of the terror group.

The newsletter used the nom de guerre that ISIS bestowed up Paddock earlier in the week: “Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki” — the American.

“The brother Abu Abdul Barr stationed himself for the invasion on the 32nd floor of a hotel overlooking a concert, and opened fire continuously on the crowds using 23 guns and more than 2,000 rounds, and died, may Allah accept him, after exhausting his ammunition,” al-Naba states.

Leaked crime scene photos and officials have indicated there was much more ammo in the room. Paddock was interrupted by a security guard, shot more than 200 rounds through the hotel room door, and then killed himself as police attempted to enter the suite.

The infographic states as “results of the operation” 59 killed — a number that was reduced to 58 by Las Vegas authorities, not counting Paddock — and 527 wounded, a number also reduced Wednesday as officials got a more accurate count from local hospitals, along with “panic and confusion of security in America and a number of European countries.”…

If confirmed, this suggests that there may have been a political motive behind the massacre.

Also: WHAT DOES SHE KNOW?

Padddock sent his Indonesian girlfriend, Mari Danley  a 100,000 to the Philippines before the attack. Law enoforcement has originally cleared her (!) but she is now a “person of interest. She lived with Paddock at a home in Mesquite, Nevada. Authorities had initially said she likely wasn’t involved in the shooting. Nuts. She knows plenty.

NBC News reported Monday that Paddock had wired Danley $100,000. It’s currently not know why Paddock wired the money.

Daily Mail:
  • WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT 
  • New photos show Vegas shooter’s dead body on the floor of his hotel room after he committed suicide
  • In the photo, Stephen Paddock wears a brown long-sleeved top, black slacks, loafers, and black gloves
  • Next to his body are two assault rifles with bipods; one has a ‘bump stock’, making it effectively full-auto
  • Dozens of spent shells litter the floor and in one corner magazines sit in neat stacks  
  • A hammer is also seen, which Paddock presumably used to smash open two windows in his suite 
  • It was from both of those vantage points that Paddock fired on a crowd of 22,000 attending a music festival 
  • He fired on the crowd for 9 minutes, killing at least 58 and injuring 527. His death brought the total to 59
  • Video from outside the hotel room shows bullets piercing the front door, from when Paddock shot at cops
  • He set up a camera on a room service cart outside the room to warn him when police were arriving 
  • By the time a SWAT team blew open the door to the suite, Paddock had shot himself dead
  • Investigators are struggling to find a reason for why the millionaire retiree carried out the massacre 
  • He had no criminal record, and his brother says he wasn’t religious or political 
  • He did, however, like gambling and in the two weeks prior had carried out several large figure bets
  • In the week before he died, he also wired $100,000 to an account in his girlfriend’s native Philippines 
  • Girlfriend Marilou Danley is back to being a person of interest and is en route back to the U.S. for questioning
  • On Tuesday, Las Vegas authorities say they had identified all but three of the 58 victims 
  • New photos show the horrifying scene SWAT teams encountered when they blew the door off the Las Vegas shooter’s room and found him dead inside – as authorities reveal the mass murderer set up a camera on a room service cart outside the room to warn him when police arrived.

    The photos, leaked Tuesday, show Stephen Paddock’s body on the floor of his suite in the Mandalay Bay resort and casino, which he used as a sniper’s nest to open fire on 22,000 innocent people attending a music festival across the street Sunday night.

    Only the 64-year-old’s legs, torso and left arm are visible in the photo – and he wears a typical outfit for a retiree: a brown long-sleeve t-shirt, black slacks and slip on loafers with white socks. The only thing that reveals his nefarious actions are the black gloves he’s wearing.

    On the floor next to him are two assault rifles, dozens of spent shells and a hammer – which he presumably used to shatter two windows in his two-room suite which he then used to shoot out of.

    One of the assault rifles has a ‘bump stock’ added to it – making effectively fully automatic – allowing him to unleash hundreds of rounds per minute.  The branding on the gun indicates it was made by Daniel Defense, a Savannah-Georgia-based company which produces variants of the AR-15 rifle, based off the U.S. Army’s M16.

    Another photo shows how he pushed two sitting chairs together to form a cradle-like space to store at least two other rifles. Another AR-15-style rifle is seen at the foot of chairs with an extended magazine that would allow him to shoot for longer before reloading.

    Behind a nearby pillar, about 15 magazines are piled in neat stacks. It’s unclear if they are loaded or spent.

    A SWAT team located Paddock in his room about 72 minutes after the beginning of the deadly attack – but cops estimate he only fired on the crowd for nine minutes, starting at 10:08pm. He reportedly had cameras set up in the hallway to let him know when law enforcement arrived – including one on a room service cart.

    Police say he shot at officers as they breached the door, but by the time they made it into the suite, Paddock had committed suicide.

    Paddock killed 58 in the attack and injured 527. His death brought the total death count to 59.

    On Tuesday, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said they had identified all but three of the victims, and that the injured county might be slightly off because one of the hospitals was double counting patients. However, he didn’t release a revised injured number.

Two pictures leaked Tuesday afternoon appear to be the full unedited photos of two Paddock’s rifles obtained by Boston 25 earlier in the day.

Also on Tuesday, video was released showing debris strewn outside the shooter’s hotel room, from when the SWAT team blew the doors off the front door.

The video shows bullet holes piercing the left side of the suite’s double doors, confirming reports that Paddock shot at officers as they tried to break into the room. However, most of the door is knocked down from the SWAT team’s forceful – but necessary – entrance.

Earlier in the night, a security guard approaching the door had been shot in the leg by Paddock. Police were notified of that at 10:28pm; SWAT didn’t storm the room until 11:20pm. The guard is still in hospital and is expected to survive.

Directly behind the doors, inside the suite, the video shows yet another assault rifle set up on the ground on a bipod.

Outside the door, debris litters the carpeting in the hallway and crime scene tape covers the entrance to the room. A Do Not Disturb sign sits on the ground next to the front door, along with an Exit sign that has been struck down. Outside a neighboring door sits a used room service cart.

At a Tuesday afternoon press conference, Lombardo confirmed that Paddock had cameras set up inside and outside of his room – including one on the food service cart.

The cameras outside the room appear to have been used to warn Lombardo when police were outside. A source told the Washington Post that the cameras outside the room were connected to a tablet which streamed live footage of the hallway.

Lombardo refused to comment on whether the cameras inside the room were used by Paddock to capture the massacre.

In a Tuesday night conference, Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said that another camera had been placed at the peephole of the door, giving a view of the corridor outside.

He added that an investigation was underway to find out who leaked the photographs.

To the right of the doors leading into Paddock's room is a room service cart, covered with empty plates and a plate cover knocked to the ground in the chaos. Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Tuesday that the shooter set up a camera on the cart, which he used to keep an eye on the hallway
