Exclamation BERLIN TERRORIST DEAD IN MILAN - Dec. 23, 2016





http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...n-Aalborg.html


World's most wanted man is dead: Rookie Italian policeman guns down fugitive Berlin killer screaming 'Allahu Akbar' after he shoots his fellow officer when they confront him in Milan


WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT: Fugitive is pictured lying dead after gun battle

Major manhunt had been underway for Berlin attack suspect Anis Amri, 24

He has been shot dead after a gunfight with two patrol officers in Milan, Italy

Amri shot one officer and screamed 'Allahu Akbar' as he was gunned down

Shoot-out happened at about 3am after Amri had stepped off train from France






Berlin truck terrorist Anis Amri has been shot dead after a gunfight with police in Milan in the early hours of this morning.

The Tunisian pulled a gun from his backpack, screamed 'Allahu Akbar' and opened fire on two officers – hitting one in the shoulder – before being shot dead after getting off a train from France.

Amri had been on the run for four days after ploughing a lorry into crowds of revellers enjoying a Christmas market in Berlin on Monday night, killing 12 and maiming dozens of others.

The 24-year-old ISIS fanatic was stopped by a routine police patrol in the suburb of Sesto San Giovanni in the northern Italian city of Milan at about 3am local time.

Two officers asked him for ID documents, at which point Amri 'immediately' pulled a gun from his backpack and shouted 'police b******s' as he shot one in the shoulder.

A firefight ensued with Amri cowering behind a car as he tried to flee, but the suspect was shot and killed by the second officer – a trainee who had only been in the job a few months.

ISIS news outlet Amaq today confirmed Amri's death - and that he carried out the market massacre in Germany. Security chiefs believe Amri, who used at least six different aliases with three nationalities, was trying to flee to southern Italy where he had entered Europe in 2011.

It was the rookie Carabinieri who took him down.

Nicely done. Terrible experience for a cop to go through, but I'm glad he was on the ball, drew fast, and shot straight. Here's hoping he deals with this OK, and that his partner makes a full and fast recovery. They undoubtedly saved lives.

Yeah, but that's hardly pertinent. INTERPOL is best thought of as akin to a multinational company headquarters. There's no product being made there. All the real work is still done by the boots on the ground wearing a duty belt and the patch of whatever the force with local jurisdiction is. It was a rookie cop in Milan who plugged the guy, and it was operation street cops who collected the evidence along the way. INTERPOL amasses and shares content; it doesn't generate it.

Yea, yea but come on you have to appreciate the irony.

It would be like some bad guy living in a house or apartment on Pennsylvania Ave in DC or Leikin Drive in Ottawa.
