Stabbing frenzy at anti-Islam rally in Germany

A knife attacker was shot dead by police after stabbing at least three people at an anti-Islam rally in southwest Germany.

Thousands followed the horror story from Mannheim live on YouTube on Friday morning.

The attack apparently occurred during a meeting of the political group BPE, which is known for its anti-Islam views.

According to initial reports, at least three people were injured, including a police officer.

One of the victims is said to be 59-year-old Islam critic Michael Stürzenberger, who is said to have previously taken part in a rally organized by the German anti-jihad group “Citizens’ Movement PAX Europa”.

Shocking footage shows a man armed with a large knife attacking another man before both fall to the ground.

The rampaging knife attacker repeatedly stabbed his victim in the face, neck and chest area.

Other men dressed in blue, who had apparently taken part in the rally, tried to pull the attacker away from his victim.

The victim appeared to have suffered stab wounds to the leg and face.

Blood flowed from a hole in his jeans and dripped near his eyes.

A police officer stumbled in the chaos and was crouched down as the knifeman continued his series of attacks, stabbing the officer in the back and side.

Another officer pointed a gun at the knifeman, who fell to the ground when a shot rang out on Mannheim’s market square.

Local media reported that he was shot dead by police.

The Mannheim police announced on Friday: “According to current information, an attack on several people took place today at around 11.35 a.m. on the Mannheim market square.

“A person is said to have attacked and injured several people with a knife. No information can yet be given about the extent and severity of the injuries.”

“A firearm was then used against the attacker. The attacker was also injured.”

The police added: “Rescue and rescue teams as well as the rescue helicopter are on duty. There is no danger to the public.”

“Rail traffic between Kurpfalzkreisel and Paradeplatz is suspended until further notice.”

The YouTube video is now no longer available to the public.
