March Headlines:

  • March 1st: Security forces killed eight suspected Maoist militants, including five women, in a raid on a rebel training camp in Chhattisgarh, India. Operating across a vast swath of eastern and central India, the guerrillas say they are fighting for the rights of peasants and landless. A rebel leader with a 500,000 rupee ($7,300) bounty on his head was among those killed. The militant leader was wanted for planting explosive devices in schools and government buildings. There were no police casualties. Over 500 policemen have been killed in the last five years in guerrilla attacks, government data shows.
  • March 2nd: Afghan security forces on Wednesday killed four suicide bombers who targeted the Indian consulate in the eastern city of Jalalabad, following an attack in which at least two people were killed and 19 wounded. The violence, coming just days after dozens of people were killed or wounded in suicide attacks in the capital, raises further questions over efforts to revive a stalled peace process with the Taliban.
  • March 3rd: The U.S. and its allies in Iraq and Syria staged 29 strikes against Islamic State on Wednesday. In a statement released early Thursday, the Combined Joint Task Force said eight strikes near four cities in Syria hit several tactical units and destroyed buildings, weaponry and communications equipment, among other targets. Separately in Iraq, 21 strikes destroyed vehicles, assembly areas, a supply cache and suppressed a mortar fire position.
  • March 5th: A total of 135 people were killed in the first week of a fragile truce in Syria in areas covered by the cessation of hostilities agreement, as reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. In areas not covered by the ceasefire, which came into force on Feb. 27, 552 people were killed, as reported by the Britain-based Observatory which monitors the country’s five-year-old civil war.
  • March 6th: A truck bomb at an Iraqi checkpoint south of Baghdad killed at least 60 people and wounded more than 70 on Sunday, and Islamic State claimed responsibility for the blast. The suicide attack, involving an explosive-laden fuel tanker, is the second deadliest this year after one on Feb. 28 that killed 78 people in Sadr City, a Shi’ite district of Baghdad. This was also claimed by the Sunni group that controls vast swathes of territory in Iraq and in Syria.
  • March 7th: Dozens of Islamist fighters stormed through the Tunisian town of Ben Guerdan near the Libyan border on Monday, attacking army and police posts in a raid that killed at least 53 people, including civilians. Local television broadcast images of soldiers and police crouched in doorways and on rooftops as gunshots echoed in the centre of the town. Bodies of dead militants lay in the streets near the military barracks after the army regained control. Islamist militant gunmen trained in Libyan camps carried out two of the three major attacks on Tunisia last year, including assaults on the Tunis Bardo museum and a Sousse beach hotel targeting foreign tourists.
  • March 9th: Economic crises convulsing Russia, Ukraine and Belarus mean testing in areas contaminated by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster has been cut or restricted, Greenpeace said, and people continue to eat and drink foods with dangerously high radiation levels. Ukraine is suffering economic hardship, worsened by a pro-Russian insurgency in its eastern territories, while Russia and Belarus are also experiencing financial pressures. “And just as this contamination will be with them for decades to come, so will the related impacts on their health. Thousands of children, even those born 30 years after Chernobyl, still have to drink radioactively contaminated milk.”
  • March 10th: Two gunmen ambushed a backyard party near Pittsburgh on Wednesday, killing at least five people and injuring several others. Four women and one man were shot and killed, with three more people wounded in the attack, in a residential neighborhood in Wilkinsburg, about 8 miles (13 km) east of the city. Two suspects fired from an alley onto a backyard party at a home and then fled, the department said in a statement.
  • March 13th: The Islamic State is using several forms of contraception to maintain its supply of sex slaves, the New York Times reported on Saturday, citing interviews with more than three dozen Yazidi women who escaped from the militant group. The New York Times reported that Islamic State used “oral and injectable contraception, and sometimes both” to ensure that the women did not become pregnant and could be passed among the fighters.” In at least one case, a woman was forced to have an abortion in order to make her available for sex, and others were pressured to do so,” the paper said. Islamic State militants consider the Yazidis to be devil-worshippers. The Yazidi faith has elements of Christianity, Zoroastrianism and Islam. Most of the Yazidi population, numbering around half a million, remains displaced in camps inside the autonomous entity in Iraq’s north known as Kurdistan.
  • March 14th: Gunmen from al Qaeda’s North African branch killed 16 people, including four Europeans, at a beach resort town in Ivory Coast on Sunday, the latest in a string of deadly attacks that have confirmed the Islamists’ growing reach in West Africa.

  • March 16th: A bomb on a bus carrying government employees in the Pakistani city of Peshawar killed 15 people on Wednesday and a militant group claimed responsibility, saying it was revenge for death sentences passed against Islamists. Lashkar-e-Islam, a militant group allied with the Pakistani Taliban, claimed responsibility, saying it was to avenge a military court’s sentencing of 13 militants to death on Tuesday. Pakistani security forces stepped up their fight against the Pakistani Taliban and allied militants along the border with Afghanistan after the massacre of 134 children at an army-run school in Peshawar in December 2014.
  • March 19th: All 62 people aboard a passenger jet flying from Dubai to southern Russia were killed when their plane crashed on its second attempt to land at Rostov-on-Don airport on Saturday, Russian officials said.

  • March 20th: A suicide bomber killed four people on Saturday in a busy shopping district in the heart of Istanbul, pushing the death toll from four separate suicide attacks in Turkey this year to more than 80. The blast, which also wounded at least 36 people, was a few hundred metres from an area where police buses are often stationed. Turkey is battling a widening Kurdish insurgency in its southeast, which it sees as fuelled by the territorial gains of Kurdish militia fighters in northern Syria, and has also blamed some of the recent bombings on Islamic State militants who crossed from its southern neighbour.
  • March 21st: Islamic State claimed responsibility for two bomb attacks that killed at least 30 people in Brussels on Tuesday, a news agency affiliated with the group said.”Islamic State fighters carried out a series of bombings with explosive belts and devices on Tuesday, targeting an airport and a central metro station,” the Amaq agency said. The attacks on Brussels airport and a rush-hour metro train in the Belgian capital came four days after Brussels police captured the prime suspect in attacks by the jihadist groups in Paris.
