Discussion of Islamic Terrorism.

Since Islamic terrorist attacks seem to be happening more and more frequently, maybe it makes sense to just lump them all into one thread, same as the "A shooting just happened..." thread.


Yesterday a child refugee hacked up a bunch of people on a train in Germany Strange his host/foster family didn't notice the ISIS flag in his room?

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said investigators were making contact with people involved with the 17-year-old. He had been living in Würzburg since March, in a home for minors who had travelled to Germany unaccompanied to seek asylum. The foster family home where he had lived for the past two weeks was searched.

"A hand-painted IS flag was found in his room," Herrmann said.
Later Tuesday, Aamaq, a news agency linked to the extremist group said IS claimed responsibility for the attack and that the 17-year-old was its "fighter."

Herrmann confirmed in an earlier television interview that the teenager boarded the train in Ochsenfurt, where he had been staying with a foster family.

"He suddenly attacked passengers with a knife and an axe, critically injuring several. Some of them may now be fighting for their lives."

The Afghan national reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar," Arabic for "God is great," before launching the attack, wielding a knife and axe.

"The perpetrator was able to leave the train, police left in pursuit and as part of this pursuit, they shot the attacker and killed him," a police spokesman said. On Tuesday, Herrmann added that a police special unit happened to be in the area and was able to respond to the incident quickly.
