Cairo Subway Attacks: Explosions Hit 4 Stations, Causing Widespread Panic Among Commuters

Dr Qadris case is no different. The only difference is he isnt even in the country yet. Earlier today, upon receiving multiple complaints from people residing around the Dr Qadris mansion about the barriers being an inconvenience, the Lahore police set out to perform its duty and have the illegal barriers removed. As per court orders, it is illegal to block streets for any security reasons. At this point, supporters of the absentee leader refused to comply with police instructions. Soon enough, this little tete-a-tete turned into a full-fledged bloody conflict with eight people pronounced dead and over 80 injured .

The blasts, which were caused by homemade explosive devices, took place at four different stations in central and northern Cairo, in the teeming neighborhoods of Ghamra and Shubra el-Khemia. Police quickly descended on the scene, sealing off stations and using sniffer dogs to search for more explosives, said the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to media. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks the first in the Egyptian capital since last month’s election of former army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi as the country’s new president. El-Sissi led the military’s ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi after millions demonstrated against him in the streets last July. Since Morsi’s ouster, his supporters have staged near-daily protests demanding his return to power. Such demonstrations have usually descended into violence. Security forces have killed hundreds and detained thousands of Morsi’s supporters and in return, Islamic militants have stepped up attacks against the military and police across Egypt. An al-Qaida-inspired group based in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, has claimed responsibility for most of the major attacks, including suicide bombings and attempted assassinations of top security officials.

The Arkham Sessions: The Psychology Of ‘fear Of Victory’

“You might feel anxious about work-related problems, taking a big exam, or making an important decision. But someone who suffers from panic disorder may react to those same moderate pressures with an exaggerated physical reaction-as if he or she were about to be attacked by a wild tiger or fall from a great height. It’s full-on, adrenaline-pumping, fight-or-flight response.” For this very reason, Rothbaum says, panic attacks are doubly frightening. “Because there is no real danger that provokes them, these episodes can happen anytime, anywhere”-including while walking down the street, dining out with a group of friends, grocery shopping-even sleeping, according to the National Institute of Mental Health . Over time, many who suffer panic attacks develop an on-going fear of having another attack. This fear can severely hamper daily activities and overall quality of life. Some people refuse to leave their houses or to put themselves in situations that remind them of their previous attacks.

Day two?: Panic grips Karachi after firing dubbed an ‘attack’ – The Express Tribune

The firing incident occurred a distance away from the ASF camp. I think, they (militants) wont have the courage now to attack again as we have already been given them a good example of our strength by killing their all men [on Monday]. However, the electronic media termed it another attack in the airport premises, claiming that there had been a breach. It was blamed for creating most of the panic. The media should avoid using the word attack, said ASF DG Azam Tiwana in a joint briefing with Karachi police chief Ghulam Qadir Thebo and Rangers sector commander Colonel Javed. The airport is completely secured and law-enforcement agencies have the capability to respond. Inside job? Meanwhile, investigators probing Mondays brazen attack on the Karachi airports old terminal have included the possibilities of internal ASF involvement and airport staff. Agencies have started reviewing the record of staffers cell phones and keeping an eye on their movement, officials told The Express Tribune. In the majority of the major attacks, including PNS Base Mehran, General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi, and PAF Base Minhas, Kamra, investigations showed internal involvement and arrests were made.

How to end an anxiety attack

You must delete all negative thoughts during such times. Have controlled breathing as this helps you to calm. The coldness of the iron grill of a subway often sends shiver down our spine, the sudden fear of something quite unknown in the middle of a great crowd is almost bizarre. But that is panic, that is anxiety, and you are being eaten by it bit by bit. A panic or anxiety is a condition wherein adrenaline gets released into your bloodstream and a message of fear sends a signal to the adrenal glands that says there is an emergency. Your adrenal glands are pea-sized organs which sit on top of your kidneys and they are filled with adrenaline which when released into your body gives you a kick.

Not only did this fiasco challenge the strength of the police, it was in complete disregard of the other residents surrounding the area and the countrys rules. Had the PAT supporters let the police do their job, the situation would not have spiralled out of control resulting in the loss of lives. Being a political party, under the regime of an elected government , whether they like it or not, the PAT has a responsibility towards the nation and the government. Acting out in such a manner demonstrated the height at which supporters of political groups are willing to go in order to achieve their objectives legal or not.

Control over the power of such images begins by unpicking and understanding what is happening. These images reflect your worst fears and while they can be extremely frightening they are not in any way real. Because you generate these images it is possible to turn things around.
