Terror Attack: Vienna

Post by Fat Cat »

Austrian interior minister Karl Nehammer said he believed the incident was an "apparent terror attack".

A number of suspects armed with rifles launched the assault in six locations, police said. Among the injured was a police officer.

One attacker was shot dead by officers during a large-scale security incident.

Do we know it was Islamic terrorists? We are talking about an attack on a synagogue in Austria after all.

Well, it was supposed to have taken place near a synagogue. Could be far right larpers turned real deal.

Social media, always a reliable and not sketchy source of information, had reports of allahu akbar. Pictures I saw looked fairly... tan.

Faces or uniforms? Again, it’s Austria.

At least two people have been stabbed to death in the Canadian city of Quebec by a man armed with a sword and dressed in medieval clothing, police say.
Five others were wounded in the Halloween night attack.

People, but I just saw a report that they're believed to be Chechen ISIS fighters, which would make them not very tan.

Ultimately they determined it was an "ISIS-sympathizer from Northern Macedonia". That means it's almost certainly an ethnic Albanian.

Apparently he’s writing books for the pre teen girl audience now. So if any of you are looking for a gift for a daughter you hate, it will be available soon.
