data-lang="en-gb">The GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB) - or, in military speak, Mother of All Bombs is a 30ft (9m), 21,600lb (9,800kg), GPS-guided munition that is dropped from the cargo doors of an MC-130 transport plane and detonates shortly before it hits the ground. The MOAB falls from the aircraft on a pallet, which is then tugged aside by a parachute allowing the weapon to glide down, stabilised and directed by four grid-like fins. Its principal effect is a massive blast wave - said to stretch for a mile in every direction - created by 18,000lb of TNT.

It was the second major set of coordinated attacks in two weeks. On April 7, terrorists set off dozens of bombs in southern Thailand, bringing down power lines and setting tires on fire to block roads, but causing no deaths or injuries. The spike in violence appears to be in response to the Thai government's rejection of a conditional offer for peace talks made this month by the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) which isn’t even involved in the peace talks with the Thai Government.

Man in Fresno shouted "Allahu Akbar" and killed 3 whites.— BLAIRE WHITE 💋 (@MsBlaireWhite) April 18, 2017
Can't wait to hear how Islam isn't violent + you can't be racist against whites.
(Fox News) Police said the man who killed three people on a shooting spree in downtown Fresno California, on Tuesday while shouting "Allahu Akbar" wanted to kill as many people as possible after a warrant was released for his arrest in the murder of a motel security guard last week.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, knew he was being searched for and he "decided he was going to kill more people."
According to Dyer, Muhammad surrendered to officers at the scene and told police "you guys are looking for me."
Police do not think the shooting spree was tied to terrorism and was "solely based on race" as all the victims were white males.
Muhammad went by the nickname "Black Jesus" and has made posts against white people and the government on his Facebook page.
Allahu Akbar is trending.— Elizabeth 🥀 (@BasedElizabeth) April 18, 2017
Someone must have been killed or raped, peacefully of course.
Whenever you see "Allahu Akbar" trending, it's because people have just been killed. #Fresno— Alana Mastrangelo (@ARmastrangelo) April 18, 2017
