THE MANHUNT IS OVER … ISLAMIST TERRORIST RESPONSIBLE FOR BERLIN CHRISTMAS MARKET ATTACK IS KILLED!!!
Anis Amri, the 24-year-old Tunisian has been shot and killed by police in Milan, Italy. The terrorist suspect responsible for the deadly Berlin Christmas market attack has been soot dead in the Sesto San Giovanni district of the northern Italian city.
The terrorist behind Monday’s deadly attack on a Berlin Christmas market swore allegiance to ISIS before dying in a wee-hours shootout with police in Milan Friday, some some 675 miles from the scene of Monday’s carnage.
Anis Amri, the 24-year-old Tunisian whose monstrous attack sparked a 72-hour manhunt and raised questions about Germany’s inability to come to grips with radicals among its burgeoning refugee population, was killed in the Sesto San Giovanni district of the northern Italian city, police said.
Before his death, Amri pledged his allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and called for jihadists to take revenge on “crusaders” bombing Muslims, a video posted on Islamic State’s Amaq news agency showed. It was not clear if the video was made before or after the Berlin attack.
Video released of the Berlin Christmas market terrorist suspect Anis Amri pledging allegiance to ISIS.
Video has emerged of the Berlin Christmas market attack suspect Anis Amri pledging allegiance to ISIS. The footage emerged hours after he was killed in an early-morning shootout in Milan on Friday morning.
The Tunisian man, who has been the subject of a Europe-wide manhunt since Monday’s market attack in which 12 people were killed, was stopped in Sesto San Giovanni — a district in the northeastern part of Milan — just after 3am local time, Italian police said on Twitter.
A video released Friday on ISIS-affiliated website, Amaq, shows Amri pledging allegiance to the group’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He does not refer to Monday’s attack.
When the man was asked for his papers by Italian police, he pulled a .22 calibre gun out of his backpack and fired at them.
ISIS Claims Reponsibility for Terror Truck Attack at Christmas Market in Berlin,Germany That Killed 12 People
GERMANY ROCKED BY TERRORISM …
The German manhunt continues as they look for a Tunisian asylum-seeker in deadly Christmas market attack. A terrorist driving a hijacked truck rammed into a crowded Christmas market in central Berlin on Monday evening, killing 12 people and injuring nearly 50. According to accounts, German police found identity papers inside the truck used in this week’s deadly assault of a Tunisian asylum-seeker. ISIS has taken responsibility for the terror attack.
German police mounted a manhunt for a Tunisian asylum-seeker whose identity papers were found inside the truck used in this week’s deadly assault on a Berlin Christmas market, two senior law enforcement officials said Wednesday.
The officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive case, said investigators discovered the man’s documents in the cabin of the truck that barreled into the market on Monday, killing 12 people, wounding dozens and reigniting debates about security and immigration.
One of the two officials said the man, in his early 20s, had left his wallet in the vehicle, and his asylum documents were found inside.
Police said Tuesday that the driver who rammed a truck into a crowded Christmas market in the heart of the German capital, killing at least 12 people and injuring nearly 50, did so intentionally and that they are investigating a suspected “terror attack.”
The truck struck the popular Christmas market outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church late Monday as tourists and locals were enjoying a traditional pre-Christmas evening out near Berlin’s Zoo station.
Russian Ambassador to Turkey Is Assassinated by man shouting, “Don’t forget Aleppo and “Allahu akbar”.
A gunman, wearing a dark suit and tie, shot and killed the Russian Ambassador to Turkey at an art gallery yesterday in Ankara, Turkey. In the video below, the assassin can be seen waving a pistol and shouting in Arabic: “God is great! Those who pledged allegiance to Muhammad for jihad. God is great!” He then switched to Turkish and shouted: “Don’t forget Aleppo, don’t forget Syria! Step back! Step back! Only death can take me from here.” The terrorist was identified as 22-year-old Mevlut Mert Altintas, an off duty Turkish policeman. He was later shot dead by Turkish authorities.
Russia’s ambassador to Turkey was assassinated at an Ankara art exhibit on Monday evening by a lone Turkish gunman shouting “God is great!” and “don’t forget Aleppo, don’t forget Syria!” in what the leaders of Turkey and Russia called a provocative terrorist attack.
The gunman, described by Turkish officials as a 22-year-old off-duty police officer, also wounded at least three others in the assault on the envoy, Andrey G. Karlov, which was captured on video. Turkish officials said the assailant was killed by other officers in a shootout.
The assassination, an embarrassing security failure in the Turkish capital, forced Turkey and Russia to confront a new crisis tied directly to the Syrian conflict, now in its sixth year.
The longer-term implications for the Russia-Turkey relationship, which had been warming recently after plunging a year ago, were not immediately clear. But some analysts played down the notion that the assassination would lead to a new rupture, saying it could conversely bring the countries closer together in a shared fight against terrorism.
President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia said on Russian television that Mr. Karlov had been “despicably killed” to sabotage ties with Turkey. Mr. Putin spoke with the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, by phone, and the two leaders agreed to cooperate in investigating the killing, and in combating terrorism broadly.
In typical Barack Obama fashion, Obama headed off to the golf course after receiving reports on Berlin attack and Russian Ambassador’s death. UNREAL. I would say this is bad optics; however, Obama has never cared about putting tragic events ahead of his golf game. It will be a pleasant change to no longer have to put up with this nonsense.
Knife/Vehicle Attack at The Ohio State University … Many Injured, Somali-born Suspect Shot Dead … Looks Like Islamic Terrorism … Update: Suspect ID’d as Abdul Razak Ali Artan
LOOKS LIKE AN ISIS INSPIRED TERROR ATTACK AT OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY …
An active shooter alert issued at Ohio St. University … RUN, HIDE, FIGHT! Police are investigating a possible terror attack at The Ohio State University. A Somali-born Ohio State University student plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife Monday morning. The suspect was shot to death by a police officer before he could do more harm. Ohio State University police Chief Craig Stone said the assailant deliberately drove his small Honda over a curb outside an engineering classroom building and then began knifing people.
A Somali-born Ohio State University student plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife Monday before he was shot to death by a police officer. Police said they were investigating whether it was a terrorist attack.
Eleven people were hurt, one critically.
The attacker was identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan. He was born in Somalia and was a legal permanent U.S. resident, according to a U.S. official who wasn’t authorized to discuss the case and spoke on the condition of anonymity. The FBI joined the investigation.
The details emerged after a morning of conflicting reports and confusion, created in part by a series of tweets from the university warning there was an “active shooter” on campus and students should “Run Hide Fight.” The warning was prompted by what turned out to be police gunfire.
Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, wrote on what appears to be his Facebook page that he had reached a “boiling point,” made a reference to “lone wolf attacks” and cited radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.”
America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially Muslim Ummah [community]. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that,” the post said.
UPDATE II: What do we know about Abdul Razak Ali Artan.
Artan, a student at OSU, was shot dead by a police officer after he plowed his vehicle into a crowd of people on campus and then started hacking people with a butcher knife, OSU Police Chief Craig Stone said. Ten people suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to hospitals.
Speaking to CNN on Monday, one witness claimed the attacker was “completely silent” as he stabbed innocent people. The witness said Artan remained silent, “even when he was shot.”
“This was done on purpose,” Stone said.
Artan reportedly left Somalia with his family as a refugee and relocated to Pakistan in 2007. He then came to the United States in 2014 as a legal permanent resident, according to officials.
Police had yet to identify a motive in the attack, but law enforcement officials told NBC News that Artan posted a “rant” on social media beforehand.
The @OSUPolice confirm Officer Alan Horujko shot and killed the suspect, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, Monday morning.
Officer Alan Horujko is being hailed as a hero after firing the shot that killed a man who hit a group of pedestrians with his car on OSU’s campus before stabbing at the victims with a knife.
The emergency dispatch center got a call of a vehicle hitting a pedestrian at 9:52 a.m. and Horujko was able to respond shortly after.
Horujko engaged the suspect, now being identified as 18-year-old Abdul Razak Ali Artan, shot and killed him.
4. Community thanks for his quick reaction
Monica Moll said in a news conference that Horujko “did a fabulous job” in ending the threat quickly and effectively, according to a Tweet from Ohio State A&P.
The university’s Emergency Management department’s Facebook praised Horujko for his service, parents, students and other members of the community began speaking up.
Facebook user Meaghan Marie wrote in the comments of the post, “Thank you for your amazing service and quick response and stopping what could have been a much worse incident. Praying for all of the victims and those who still have to recover. You are an absolute hero!!”
Another user, Deb DeRossett Silvers commented: “My son is an OSU student who was close to the attack area. Thank you, so much, for the brave and heroic work you do and the quick action you took today. God bless.”
TRUMP Destroys Hillary on Clinton Pay for Play Foundation and Challenges Hillary to Return Money From Nations Abusive to Women and Gays (VIDEO)
TRUMP DESTROYS CLINTON ON CLINTON FOUNDATION PAY FOR PLAY AND HILLARY’S TAKING MONIES FROM COUNTRIES ABUSIVE TO WOMEN AND GAYS …
During last night’s third and final 2016 Presidential debate, Fox News moderator Chris Wallace asked Hillary Clinton a tough and direct question regarding The Clinton Foundation and the perceived pay for play that took place when Clinton was Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton did not answer the question. She just flat out ignored the question and gushed over what the Foundation did. Donald Trump then pounced on Hillary and the monies she has taken from nations that are abusive to women and gays. Trump asked Hillary to return the money. Of course there is no chance in hell that Hillary would ever do such a thing, yet she claims to be the champion of women and gays. Hillary Clinton had no response to the question of returning the money and was left with that that uncomfortable goofy smile. Would not it be the honrable thing to return monies to countries that abuse women and kill gays? Then again, we used the word honorable.
They kill women and treat women horribly, and yet you take their money.”
“So I would like to ask you right now,” he continued. “Why don’t you give back the money that you have taken from certain countries that treat certain groups of people so horribly? Why don’t you give back the money?
BTW … what the hell was up with Clinton in laughing and that bizarro, dopey grin (see video 0:32) she get when Trump mentioned that “these are people that push gays off buildings?” Laughing and that inappropriate, goofy smile?
Wallace: In this bucket about fitness to be president there’s been a lot of developments over the last ten days since the last debate. I’d like to ask you about them. These are questions that the American people have. Secretary Clinton, during your 2009 Senate confirmation hearing you promised to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest with your dealing with the Clinton Foundation while you were secretary of state, but e-mails show that donors got special access to you, those seeking grants for Haiti relief separately from non-donors and some of those donors got contracts, government contracts, taxpayer money. Can you really say you’ve kept your pledge to that Senate committee and why isn’t what happened and what went on and between you and the Clinton Foundation? Why isn’t it what Mr. Trump calls pay-to-play?
Clinton: Well, everything I did as secretary of state was in furtherance of our country’s interests and our values. The state department has said that. I think that’s been proven, but I am happy — in fact, I’m thrilled to talk about the Clinton Foundation because it is a world renowned charity and I’m so proud of the work that it does. I could talk for the rest of the debate. I know I don’t have the time to do that, but just briefly the Clinton Foundation made it possible for 11 million people around the world with HIV AIDS to afford treatment and that’s about half of all the people in the world that are getting treatment in partnership with the American health association.
Wallace: Secretary Clinton, respectfully, this is an open discussion.
Clinton: Well, it is an open discussion.
Wallace:The specific question is about pay to play –
Clinton: There is a lot of evidence about the very good work –
Trump: And it’s a criminal enterprise –
Wallace: Please let Mr. Trump speak.
Trump: It’s a criminal enterprise. Saudi Arabia given $25 million, Qatar, all of these countries. You talk about women and women’s rights? So these are people that push gays off business, off buildings. These are people that kill women and treat women horribly and yet you take their money. So I’d like to ask you right now why don’t you give back the money that you’ve taken from certain countries that treat certain groups of people so horribly? Why don’t you give back the money? I think it would be a great gesture because she takes a tremendous amount of money. And you take a look at the people of Haiti. I was in Little Haiti the other day in Florida, and I want to tell you they hate the Clintons because what’s happened in Haiti with the Clinton Foundation is a disgrace. And you know it and they know it and everybody knows it.
