    Nobel Prize In Death

    Chinese dissident and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo has been granted medical parole after he has been diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. Liu is 61 years old ; worth keeping an eye on him because the Chinese authorities won't anymore.

    Political Frailty

    Several unoffficial reports now stating he is dead. His daughter confirmed earlier today that he did have a brain haemorrhage. Fergananews, which initially reported on his hospitalization, is also reporting the same. If true, good news is that a tyrant is gone, bad news is that this will leave a huge power vacuum and maybe a bad outcome.

    Terrorists & Topical Terrorist Targets

    BBC report on new leader being announced, but no information on Shekau who is in the DDP this year. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-36963711 Missing in action yet again? Some newspapers, citing military claims, are reporting that Abubakar Shekau was killed along with top commanders in a series of air strikes. There are conflictlictual reports: some media are reporting his death while others instead mention that he has been gravely wounded. This is the third time that his death was reported so caution is always good. http://www.independent.ie/world-news/africa/boko-haram-leader-abubakar-shekau-fatally-wounded-in-nigerian-army-air-strike-34987709.html Army tweet
