A Muslim Moroccan man in France opened on people in a train station. He wounded three people, and would have murdered many if it wasn’t for two righteous American soldiers who were at the scene. They tackled down the Muslim and rescued everyone in the train station. According to one report:
A young Moroccan armed with a Kalashnikov and a knife opened fire in a high-speed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris Friday, injuring three people — including two American soldiers who subdued him, according to French media reports
Two of the victims were in critical condition, according to a statement from the office of President Francois Hollande.
“Everything is being done to shed light on this tragedy,” Hollande said on Twitter.
The French actor Jean-Hugues Anglade was also repored injured in his hand when he broke a glass to pull an alarm.
The 26-year-old suspect was arrested after the train stopped in Arras, 115 miles north of Paris, Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henri Brandet said on French television BFM.
The Prefect of Pas-de-Calais, Fabienne Buccio, said the suspect should be regarded as a terrorist, according to La Voix du Nord.
The French newspaper La Voix du Nord reports that the gunman was overpowered by passengers, including the two soldiers. The newspaper said the pair heard the man’s loading the automatic weapon in a bathroom on the train and overpowered the gunman before he could open fire inside the main train cars. Earlier reports said that one of the soldiers was British.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, who arrived on the scene late Friday, denounced the “barbaric act.” He praised the “two deserving passengers” for their “great bravery and composure,” the newspaper said.
The newspaper, quoting a prosecutor, reported that one of the soldiers was injured by a gunshot and the other by a knife. The French actor Jean-Hugues Anglade was also reported injured in his hand when he broke a glass to pull an alarm
The suspect was identified as a Moroccan, said Sliman Hamzi, an official with police union Alliance, said on French television i-Tele. He was known to French intelligence services, Agence France-Press reports, quoting unidentified police sources.
Christophe Piednoel, a spokesman for national railway operator SNCF, said the suspect was carrying both an automatic rifle and a knife.
