German police shoot dead knife-wielding attacker

Hello and welcome to the details of German police shoot dead knife-wielding attacker and now with the details

Nevin Al Sukari - Sana'a - BERLIN, Jan 6 — German police yesterday shot dead a knife-wielding Turkish man who sought to attack officers in the city of Gelsenkirchen.

The man, who lived in Gelsenkirchen, struck a patrol car with an object and sought to assail officers standing by the vehicle “with a raised object,” a police spokesman told AFP.

Officers noted that the attacker was holding a knife behind his back, he added.

Despite several warnings from officers, the man refused to stop his assault, leading a 23-year-old policeman to fire a shot that killed him.

Asked to confirm reports that the man cried out “Allah Akbar” (“God is greater”) during the assault, the police spokesman would only say they are “rumours.”

Germany remains on alert following a series of Islamist attacks, the deadliest of which was a truck rampage at a Berlin Christmas market in 2016 that killed 12 people.
