A knife-man which has been reported to be of Algerian descent has attempted to stab a police officer whilst screaming “Allahu Akbar” in Barcelona, Spain before being shot dead.
The all to familiar type of terror attack took place at 6am this morning, with the have-a-go terrorist entering the police station with a knife.
The media in Spain have named him as Abdelouahab Taib, 29.
The station has been closed down for the time being.
The police in Catlonia known as Mossos, took to Twitter to explain; “A man armed with a gun has accessed this morning to the Cornellà police station in order to attack the officers. The aggressor has been shot down.”
Reportedly a neighbour went on to explain that the terror suspects girlfriend hastily converted to Islam not long after they became a couple, they said; “Right away we saw her with a veil and the truth is that she surprised us”.
