Muslim “refugee” who attacked Paris police station posed with ISIS flag in Mutti Merkel asylum centre

Man who attacked Paris police station had been ‘classed as a possible terror suspect after posing with an ISIS flag while living in a German asylum centre’ but disappeared in December

A man shot dead after he launched a knife attack on a Paris police station had been previously flagged by German authorities as a potential terrorist.

The man had been trying to enter the police station in Barbes, northern Paris, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and threatening officers with a knife on the anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo attacks.

German authorities have confirmed the man who was shot dead on Thursday, lived in a centre for asylum seekers in Germany. It is believed he made several asylum claims using at least three different names.

    • Maybe he was wrongly given a parking ticket.

      • Yeah, that would get him mad enough.
