July 30, 2013 2 Cars Crash Into Christian Day Care Center in Kansas City In Kansas City, a Range Rover rear-ended a parked Cadillac Seville which smashed through the front wall of the 2 year old room at the Christian Academy day care center in the afternoon. 2 adults were hut and 3 children were seriously injured. It is highly unusual for an "accident" when the Range Rover made a left hand towards the front of the building in the middle of the block to hit a Cadillac with a driver who some said appeared to be backing up or parking so that it was ready to be rammed into the front of the building. Bystanders help pull out the two children who were trapped under the Cadillac. About 40 children were inside the center. Police say the SUV driver was "approximately 80" years old, while the the driver of the Cadillac fled, but was later found. Evidently it was ruled an accident and not a deliberate coordinated attack as neither of the drivers was identified or charged with any traffic violation.

July 10, 2013 2 killed 1 arrested Murder of Tan Boon Sin and Tan Chee Heong On 10 July 2013, two murdered bodies were found within one kilometer of each other at Kovan, in the Chinese dominated city state of Singapore. The victims were father and son and have since been identified as Chinese residents Tan Boon Sin and Tan Chee Heong respectively. 34-year-old Senior Staff Sergeant Iskandar Bin Rahmat was named as the suspect. He had been demoted and stripped of his gun because of his bank debts, but apparently sought to steal money by convincing a citizen who had reported money in a safe deposit box to give him access, but his plot was bungled when he ended up murdering not only the father but also running over the son, and fleeing to Malaysia where he was quickly found and captured He was sentenced to hang for the murders in December 2015. Although the apparent motive was financial, and there have been no recent terrorist incidents in Singapore, Rahmat's names with Arabic and Iranian origins and refuge into the Muslim nation of Malaysia and targeting of Chinese points to a a possible if not proven alternate religious connection.
