    (ISIS is sneaking into Europe with the refugees.) reuters.com Germany to tell people to stockpile food and water in case of attacks: FAS BERLIN For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government plans to tell citizens to stockpile food and water in case of an attack or catastrophe, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported on Sunday. Germany is currently on high alert after two Islamist attacks and a shooting rampage by a mentally unstable teenager last month. Berlin announced measures earlier this month to spend considerably more on its police and security forces and to create a special unit to counter cyber crime and terrorism. "The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days," the newspaper quoted the government's "Concept for Civil Defence" - which has been prepared by the Interior Ministry - as saying. The paper said a parliamentary committee had originally commissioned the civil defense strategy in 2012. A spokesman for the Interior Ministry said the plan would be discussed by the cabinet on Wednesday and presented by the minister that afternoon. He declined to give any details on the content. People will be required to stockpile enough drinking water to last for five days, according to the plan, the paper said. The 69-page report does not see an attack on Germany's territory, which would require a conventional style of national defense, as likely. However, the precautionary measures demand that people "prepare appropriately for a development that could threaten our existence and cannot be categorically ruled out in the future," the paper cited the report as saying. It also mentions the necessity of a reliable alarm system, better structural protection of buildings and more capacity in the health system, the paper said. A further priority should be more support of the armed forces by civilians, it added. Germany's Defence Minister said earlier this month the country lay in the "crosshairs of terrorism" and pressed for plans for the military to train more closely with police in preparing for potential large-scale militant attacks.

    reuters.com U.N. readies for refugee exodus from Iraq's Mosul World News | Tue Aug 23, 2016 8:58am EDT "In Mosul we believe the displacement situation may be about to dramatically worsen," UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards told a briefing, saying the agency needed more land for camps. GENEVA Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis in and around Mosul could be uprooted by the military assault to retake city from Islamic State, the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR said on Tuesday. "The humanitarian impact of the military offensive is expected to be enormous, up to 1.2 million people could be affected." About 3.4 million people have already been forced by conflict to leave their homes across Iraq, taking refuge in areas under control of the government or in the Kurdish region, east of Mosul, Islamic State's de facto capital. With a population at one time as large as 2 million, Mosul is the largest city under the group's control in either Iraq or Syria. Iraqi and Kurdish forces are gradually closing on the city 400 km (250 miles) north of Baghdad, with air and ground support from a U.S.-led coalition. Its fall would mark the effective defeat of the ultra-hardline militants in Iraq, according to Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi. The Iraqi army is battling its way up the Tigris river and has 60 km (40 miles) left to reach the outskirts of Mosul, while Kurdish Peshmerga forces are deployed 30 km east of the city.
