They also used blackberrys, boats, guns, bombs, .... it's not the first time, it's not the last time.

The West sees terrorists are middle-age people, and we're surprised to learn that they're actually in the 21st century as well, using modern tools, modern communication and marketing techniques.

"Shoes used by terrorists in India attacks".

Shoes are not inherently good or bad. They are just useful things, capable of being used for good and bad purposes.

Swap "shoes" with "maps".
