19 people have been injured, 3 critically, following a rampage by an axe and knife wielding 17 year-old Afghan refugee on board a German train. Authorities are investigating the incident as a “probable” Islamist attack following reports of the perp, who was killed by responding police, shouted the jihadi mating call as he carried out the attack. Or as BO would say, “his motives remain unclear”.
From DailyMail UK:
A teenage Afghan refugee shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ before hacking at passengers during an axe rampage on a train in Germany – in scenes likened to a ‘slaughterhouse’.
The 17-year-old was gunned down by armed police after fleeing from the scene near the city of Wurzburg, 70 miles north of Nuremberg in southern Germany.
As many as 19 passengers needed hospital treatment while three victims are fighting for their lives after being attacked with ‘cutting and stabbing weapons’. Officials have said it was ‘probably’ an Islamist attack.
An eyewitness said the train, which had been carrying around 25 people, looked ‘like a slaughterhouse’ after the attack, with blood covering the floor.
