French Police Shoot ‘Allahu Akbar’ Knifeman

French police shot a knifeman in the leg on Sunday, one of three police shootings in response to allegedly “Allahu Akbar” shouting knifemen in Europe in three days.

Officers were called to the scene after a man was seen walking out of a shop carrying a knife in the north-eastern French town of Metz on Sunday afternoon.

The responding officers were threatened by the suspect when they arrived and attempted to attack with a knife, which the French prosecutor is investigating as attempted murder.

The suspect was fired upon and injured, being transferred to a hospital in police custody. His injuries are reportedly not life-threatening.

French newspaper Le Figaro reports the alleged attacker cried “Allahu Akbar” [Allah/God is greater] during the incident, and that he had an entry in the so-called ‘S’ file — the French government’s database of known extremists.
