Afghan arrested while stabbing multiple people, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’

An Afghan illegal immigrant was arrested in Bordeaux, France, on Friday after attempting to stab people and yelling “Allahu Akbar.”

The incident occurred in a bar that was under construction that included the man chasing a female worker.

The incident

“The incident took place after the illegal immigrant attempted to enter a bar currently under construction and made an attempt to stab a female worker, who promptly ran from the Afghan. When the 22-year-old chased the worker, he made several attempts to stab random people in the vicinity while yelling “Allahu akbar,” French conservative newspaper Valeurs Actuelles reports,” according to Breitbart News.

“No one was injured as a result of the attempted attacks and police stated that the Afghan national has no prior known criminal record,” it added.

One of many

The attack is one of multiple similar incidents in France involving individuals shouting “Allahu Akbar” and seeking to harm others.

In January, three police officers were injured in an incident by a man shouting the phrase in the northern community of Valenciennes.

The concerns have led to increased security focus in cities across France and other European nations.

The recent occurrences have also led to a focus on immigration laws, with many seeking to push for changes to increase safety measures.

The attacks also remain a concern for others worldwide as communities seek calm despite numerous acts of violence in recent days.
