Germany Axe Attack
Eyewitnesses at Wuerzburg railway station claimed that the attacker tried to escape after injuring several passengers. The German officials claimed that the attacker came to Germany without accompanying anyone and stayed at settlement camp and a few months ago he was adopted by a foster family. Officials also claimed that at this point in time they cannot rule out the possibility of Islamic State attack as the eye witnesses claimed that the attacker shouted “Allahu akbar” before attacking the passengers.
The Germany axe attack took place barely a week after the Nice attack in France will pressurize German chancellor Angela Merkel to change refugee policy as Germany accepted about a million refugees last year from war-torn countries. In last few months, lone wolf attacks are on the rise. The Islamic State is continuously losing territories in Syria and Iraq but the attacks outside the territory have increased. In the month of June-July, Dhaka attack, Nice attack, Iraq bomb blast have rattled the world. Global leaders are not facing a serious challenge to contain these terror attacks claiming lives of several innocent civilians across the world.
