Then, the man stole a car, killing the passenger and wounding the driver. Upon that, he drove to the nearby town of Trèbes. An eye-witness said that the perpetrator shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) [translator’s note: this common translation is not quite correct, it means “Allah is greater” or “is greatest”) when he assaulted the local supermarket “Super U“ market at 11:15 AM. He was armed with knives, a shotgun and hand grenades.

A Moroccan terrorist who was known to French police has been shot dead by police after killing three people.

Update: Here is more on the kidnap/murder rampage of Moroccan terrorist Redouane Lakdim.

My prayers for the victims and their families as well as the brave French police officer, Col. Arnaud Beltrame, who was shot while offering himself as a hostage in exchange for those being held hostage. What a brave act.
