“Police shoot and arrest knifeman screaming ‘Allah Akbar’ at shoppers in Dutch town,” by Patrick Lion, Mailonline, 10 August 2016 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

Police officers were forced to shoot down a knife wielding man who terrified shoppers with shouts of ‘Allah Akbar.’

The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon in Spijkenisse, a commuter-town close to the city of Rotterdam in the west of the Netherlands.

The police spotted a local man, 35, close to the central metro station of Spijkenisse who made wild movements with a butcher’s knife.

Police closed off the crime scene after shooting the knife-wielding man. He was now in hospital and was still responsive after being shot

Shoppers and commuters were especially worried by shouts of ‘Allah Akbar’.

A police officer was forced to shoot down the man when he came storming towards them with the knife.

According to a police spokesman, the knife wielding man was still responsive after he was shot in his leg, and was taken to a hospital.

No other people were injured in the incident.

It is not yet known why the man, a 35-year-old citizen of Spijkenisse, wielded a knife or shouted ‘Allah Akbar’.

According to the police, the man looked confused.

Multiple eye-witnesses heard the shouts of ‘Allah Akbar’, although some who watched the scenes unfold were not impressed.

One eye-witness said: ‘About every person on the planet is shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ nowadays.’

The man heard from a group of girls that the suspect also dropped his pants in front of them before making a scene with the butcher’s knife.
