FRANCE: ‘ MAN RUNS INTO POLICE STATION & STABS THREE POLICE OFFICERS & IS SHOT DEAD ‘

#AceNewsServices – A story just breaking say that police have shot dead a man who stabbed three officers in a police station in central France Sky News reported.  

The 20-year-old reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest” in Arabic) as he carried out the attack in Joue-les-Tours, near the city of Tours, on Saturday.

He ran into the station and pulled out a knife and stabbed three officers who tried to calm him down, Le Figaro newspaper said.

He wounded a female police officer, injuring her cheek and ear, and then stabbed two other officers.

A police officer pulled out a gun and shot him twice, killing him instantly, the newspaper reported.

Other reports said he was shot by two officers.

The Burundi-born man had a criminal record and was known for his “radical Islamic views”, Le Figaro said.

Anti-terror investigators are probing the incident, a source told AFP news agency.

The source said the man “shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ from the moment he entered until his last breath”.

He was not on any terror watch lists run by France’s main domestic intelligence service, the General Directorate for Internal Security.

But the source said his brother was known to security agencies for his radical beliefs and had at one point planned to travel to Syria.

“The investigation is leading towards an attack on police forces on radical Islamist motives,” another source told AFP.

A police spokesman said the three officers are in a stable condition.

” Venezuelan Offices of the `Opposition Party Popular Will’ have been raided to arrest their Founder ”

#AceWorldNews says Venezuelan military intelligence officers are reported to have raided the headquarters of the country’s opposition party, Popular Will.

Several of the party’s officials alleged armed officers arrived at the office, threw tear gas, and attempted to remove several individuals from the premises.

“The intelligence officers arrived and began to harass us,” said party activist Adriangela Ruiz. Security camera footage provided by Popular Will, which has not been independently verified, showed officers entering the party’s offices armed with guns.

Venezuela’s government has issued an arrest warrant for Leopoldo Lopez, Popular Will’s founder, who has been accused by the Maduro administration of inciting violence and acts of terrorism.
