The government, the prime minister, the Australian federal police and the AFP’s head of operations have all condemned the attacks on hospital staff and have pledged to provide support, including increased security for doctors, nurses and hospital officials.
The attacks on an asylum seeker center in Melaka were an attack by an anti-Western Islamist group on a service centre run by Catholic healthc카지노 사이트are workers and the government of the country’s Christian minority. They were intended to provoke a backlash from the Muslim community in the south African country, where Islamic fundamentalism has been a defining characteristic since independence from Britain in 1960.

“The hospital doctor rushed to the gate but he was shot in the leg,” she added.
The man shot suffered critical injuries. Police said five victims were then flown to hospital, six others were flown to Cape Town for treatment.

Two of the injured died within a few hours of the attack, the statement said. The injured were taken to the Melaka regional hospital and the fifth has been flown to the city of Freetown in south Africa for an operation.
Police are investigating a motive for the shootings that took place last Tuesday and the attack on the centre where doctors were treating a pregnant woman and two babies who were born with birth defects. The mother was shot dead with one of the bullets.
A security official said the attack was part of a plan to trigger an outburst in the Muslim community to turn the country against Western influence. “It’s a calculated way of sparking resentment towards the west … they wanted to create a scene of carnage and of an act of terror which would provoke anger and rage among the Muslim communit
