Crazed knifeman kills two women at Marseille train station
A religious fanatic wielding a butcher’s knife and shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ was gunned down by army sharpshooters Saturday after killing two female passengers at Gare de Marseille-Saint Charles.
Amid screams of horror, one of the victims was slashed in the throat and the other stabbed in the chest and stomach. The women were ages 17 and 20.
As the black-clad man attacked the two women, other passengers ran for their lives.
The terrorist, said to be in his 20s, was shot down by soldiers who were on patrol inside the train station as part of France’s ongoing state of emergency.
Lunatic in Edmonton stabs cop, runs down pedestrians outside football stadium
A man in a speeding car carrying an ISIS flag crashed through a barricade at a football game Saturday night, catapulting a police officer into the air. He then jumped out of his car and repeatedly stabbed the officer.
The terrorist, a 30-year-old Somalian, jumped back into his car and sped away, running down pedestrians as he led a dozen police vehicles on a high-speed chase in a scenario described as chaotic.
“There were people flying everywhere,” said a witness.
The stabbed police officer and four pedestrians who were struck by the speeding car were rushed to hospital.
During the high speed chase the terrorist’s car overturned and the driver fled.
After a four-hour manhunt, the madman was pulled over at a police checkpoint on Wayne Gretzky Drive while driving a U-Haul truck. The name on his driver’s license was similar to that of the registered owner of the car used in the earlier attack. After a struggle with police, the terrorist was taken into custody.
