Moment police officers fire warning shot at a knifeman after he ‘shouted Allahu Akbar’ before wrestling him to the ground in Holland

This is the moment police officers fired a warning shot at a knifeman who allegedly shouted Allahu Akbar after threatening several passers-by.

The tense situation started yesterday morning in Urk, a traditional fishing town in the heart of the Netherlands, when he entered a petrol station at around 8.30am looking confused.

He then ran outside and threatened passers-by whilst shouting the Arabic phrase which translates to ‘God is greatest’, according to witnesses.
