A German parolee of Iraqi-origin was shot and killed by police in Berlin after he stabbed a policewoman last Thursday.
From Deutsche Welle:
“Police said the man lived in Berlin and had been sentenced to prison by the regional court in Stuttgart in 2008. He was subsequently released on parole and also wore an electronic tag, which he removed on Thursday morning before the attack.
Investigators first learned of the incident via a phone call from a passer-by on Heerstrasse in western Berlin’s Spandau area, according to local public broadcaster RBB. The caller said a man with a knife was threatening people. Four police cars reached the area, a police spokesman told reporters.
The man attacked one of the officers, who stepped out of her car. Several shots were fired after that, although it is not known how many police officers shot at the attacker.”
The policewoman’s injuries were extensive enough to require helicopter evacuation.
With tens of thousands of
colonists refugees arriving in Germany each day, there can’t possibly be more such attacks on the horizon can there?
