This most recent attack comes to us from the capital in Paris, more specifically from The Louvre museum of art that hosts such priceless works as The Mona Lisa. Four soldiers that were stationed outside The Louvre came into contact with a man armed with a machete, shouting Islamic propaganda and ready to attack.
“A terror probe has been launched in Paris after a machete-wielding man was shot after trying to attack four soldiers outside the Louvre.
“The suspect was shot five times in the stomach and is in a critical condition.
“He was shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ – Arabic for ‘God is the greatest’ – according to the Paris prefect, and reportedly had paint bombs in his backpack.
“After being refused entry, he pulled out the weapon and was shot by a soldier, officials have confirmed. A soldier is believed to have suffered a head injury.
“US President tweeted following the attack in the French capital: ‘A new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again. GET SMART U.S.’
“A second man was arrested after ‘acting suspiciously’ close to the scene, but it is not known if he is linked to the attack.”
The paint bombs, while much less serious as far as a human toll is concerned, were possibly meant to harm the works of art inside the museum, much in the way that Jihadists in the middle east will resort to ransacking and destroying ancient historical artifacts as a manner of shocking their victim nations.
