It seems these attacks are only accelerating, coming on the heels of the ISIS-related truck attack in Nice, France, last week that claimed the lives of 84 people. Reports are coming out of Wurzburg, Germany, about a 17-year-old refugee from Afghanistan who went on a rampage with an axe at a local train station. According to reports, 4 people are injured, 3 of them critically, but no deaths at this point.
Witnesses report that the Afghan refugee, whose name has not been released yet, shouted “Allah Akbar” while attacking random civilians with an axe. Are recent radical Islamic terror attacks using every day objects to cause chaos and end lives inspiring others to follow suit?
Authorities have said the attacker entered Germany as an unaccompanied child refugee. Local media report that he had lived with a German foster family for two weeks having previously lived in a refugee camp.
Hillary Clinton wants to increase the amount refugee’s taken in by the United States by over 500%. If you want to see what the future of our country will look like under Clinton with her immigration policy, then just look at the headlines coming out of Europe and you’ll get the idea.
No word yet if this was an “AR-15 style” axe or a high-capacity automatic axe, but I eagerly await politicians to initiate “common sense” axe control legislation following this incident.
Daily Mail UK reports:
BREAKING NEWS: Horror as 15 people are attacked by 17-year-old Afghan refugee wielding an AXE and shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ in German train rampage before police shot him dead as he fled the scene
- Attacker went on the rampage on a train near Wurzburg targeting 15 people
- Three were critically injured and emergency services are at the scene
- A 17-year-old Afghan has since been shot dead by police marksmen
A 17-year-old Afghan refugee has been shot dead by police after attacking up to 15 people with an axe on a train in Germany.
The teenager, who shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ during the onslaught, was gunned down by armed police after fleeing from the scene near the city of Wurzburg in southern Germany.
As many as 15 people were injured while three of them are fighting for their lives after being attacked with ‘cutting and stabbing weapons’.
Authorities say the attacker was an unaccompanied Afghan – but the motives for his attack are still unclear.
As well as the three critically injured victims, one other passenger is believed to have non life-threatening injuries while others suffered minor injuries or shock.
The rampage started on the train from Treuchtlingen to Würzburg as it stopped at Würzburg-Heidingsfeld.
The teenager shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ before hacking at his victims. As well as the three critically injured victims, one other passenger is believed to have non life-threatening injuries while others suffered minor injuries or shock.
He was eventually shot dead by police after he tried to attack them with a ‘knife or hatchet’, according to Bild.
Joachim Herrmann, the interior minister of Bavaria state, said the attacker was a 17-year-old Afghan who had lived in nearby Ochsenfurt.
‘Shortly after arriving at Wuerzburg, a man attacked passengers with an axe and a knife,’ a police spokesman said.
‘Three people have been seriously injured and several others lightly injured.’
He added: ‘The perpetrator was able to leave the train, police left in pursuit and as part of this pursuit, they shot the attacker and killed him.’
There were no further details on the circumstances of the teenager’s death, and police declined to suggest what the motive was for the attack.
‘At this time everything is possible,’ the spokesman said.
Train services have come to a halt between Wurzburg-Heidingsfeld and Ochsenfurt and a police helicopter is circling the area.
Authorities have said the attacker entered Germany as an unaccompanied child refugee.
Local media report that he had lived with a German foster family for two weeks having previously lived in a refugee camp.
The Bavarian interior ministry confirmed that police had shot and killed the attacker and a special task force has been dispatched from Wurzburg.
Police believe the attacker worked alone.
In May, a mentally-unstable 27-year-old man carried out a similar knife attack on a regional train in the south, killing one person and injuring three others.
Early reports suggested he had yelled ‘Allahu akbar’ but police later said there was no evidence pointing to a religious motive. He is being held in a psychiatric hospital.
