Spain - Police Shoot ‘Allahu Akbar’ Knifeman After Terrorist Strike Anniversary

||| Twitter @MarkLarge|||

Exactly one day after the anniversary of the Barcelona and Cambrils terrorist attacks, Barcelona police were this morning attacked by a terrorist running towards them with a knife and shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is great). The Barcelona police, called the Mossos, declared that they shot the man but declined to confirm early reports in the Spanish press that the man has been killed.

The drama happened around 6am at a police station in Cornella on the outskirts of the Catalan capital. Regional Mossos d'Esquadra police said in a tweet: “A man armed with a knife has accessed the police station in Cornella this morning with the aim of attacking officers. He has been taken out.”

Local reports claim that the man was a 29-year-old of Algerian origin.

The incident happened just after the anniversary of the devastating terrorist attack in Barcelona's Las Ramblas in 2017.

Back then, 22-year-old Moroccan Younes Abouyaaqoub used a rented van to mow down and kill 22 people in Barcelona's famous Las Ramblas.

Police shot dead Younes in vineyards in Subirats an hour's drive west of Barcelona after he went on the run following the Barcelona massacre. He was later buried in an unmarked grave in a funeral held in secret in his homeland.

He was claimed to have been part of a terrorist cell that was working on bomb material. When police discovered them and took out their leader the day before the planned bombing, they changed their tactic and attacked the Ramblas with a van instead.

The day after that, another three terrorists were killed in a shootout with police in the nearby town of Cambrils.

Since I don't understand middleeast jibber speak, I interpret "aloha snack bar" as "aim in this direction"
