POLICE in France have arrested a man on suspicion of attempted murder after he ploughed his car into a crowd while shouting Allah Akbar.
The 32-year-old suspect mowed down two victims who have been rushed to hospital following the shock incident at 1am in Nimes, southern France, where bystanders had gathered in preparation for the regions annual grape harvesting festival.
The man was reported to have sped the car towards a crowd of 50 people outside the LInstant T bar.
Witnesses said the man had tried to flee the scene but had been stopped by bystanders before being arrested by police at 1.30am.
The victims had been standing behind barriers when the car hit them.
They were rushed to a nearby hospital in a stable condition having suffered injuries to their lower limbs.
A source told French publication Midi Libre the man was not known to police for suspected radicalisation.
The regions public prosecutor Eric Maurel said the suspect was in a state of mental confusion during his arrest, which followed him being roughed up by the crowd of witnesses who tried to restrain him.
What could be the motivation? Radical Methodists again?
Gee, I wonder WHAT could have been his motive. Hmmmmm. Perhaps all he needed was a hug and some dole cash.
The Muslim does love his rape and mass murder. The Muslim does what the Muslim is good at.
Of course it’s not terrorism. It says right in the article he was “in a state of mental confusion”. Another mentally ill man failed by the system. By us all, indeed.
They will work hard on finding a motive. At this point, no one knows why!
But, why was the perpetrator only “stopped” by by-standers?
Absolutely not terrorism. The motive is a mystery, too.
It’s OK ,that’s what they do
Aloha Snackbar strikes again.
Darn that workplace violence again!
Oh, wait. The guy wasn’t employed. Sorry, just another Amish traffic accident.
>> the suspect was in a state of mental confusion during his arrest, which followed him being roughed up by the crowd of witnesses who tried to restrain him.
Hmmmm - we might have a potential solution to the problem here, but first, let’s work on quantifying and perfecting the “roughed up” part.
Remember, the Ministry of Propaganda says that Allahu Akbar means “this has nothing to do with Islam”.
Wow, yet another rare mere coincidence
We need to be reminded of what the muslims think
Definitely not terrorism, and I don’t want any of you deplorables jumping to any conclusions.
Not a moslem. No. Not. Can’t be - islam is the Religion of Peace.
which followed him being roughed up by the crowd of witnesses who tried to restrain him.
They should have torn him limb from limb.
Some sort of which is better, beer -vs- wine dispute?
Sounds like crowd beat the living daylights out of this murdering basturd
The French are maybe getting some sense, nah!
