Axe-wielding man shouting 'Allahu Akbar' shot after killing police dog

Dutch police were forced to shoot a man who stabbed a police dog to death while wielding an axe and shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar’ at officers in the Netherlands.

The incident occurred in the Dutch city of Schiedam yesterday afternoon – officers initially thought the dog was fine but it later died of its injuries.

A 26-year-old man was shot and arrested at the scene.

Regional Mayor, Cor Lamers, said the man was of a Syrian background and ‘known to different aid agencies’. Surprise, surprise.

It comes off the back of an ISIS fanatic in Belgium shooting two police officers dead with their own gun as well as a passer-by – he also beat another man to death with a hammer.

Another day, another suspected terror incident in Europe.
