Core: This morning, Mohamed Abrini was arrested in Belgium as a suspect in the Paris attacks. Police believe that he is the link between the Paris and Brussels attacks, but are not sure. Either way, Abrini's arrest brings some semblance of relief to the people of western Europe, but their desperate need for a stop to terrorism persists.
Skin: The manhunts for the attackers in Brussels and Paris have spurred international coverage, thought terror attacks occur often, especially throughout the Middle East, and rarely garner such coverage. Pakistan, for example, experiences multiple bombings a year, killing hundreds of people, yet the international media rarely offers it much attention.
Leaves: Abrini will be investigated by both the Belgian and French authorities. It is likely that the rage over terrorism in the countries will not cease for quite some time.
Food For Thought: Do you think that the United States needs to do more to combat terrorism or prevent it from reaching our land? Do you think that we give enough attention to non-european countries in the media?
