German Police Arrest Syrian Migrant After Hijacked Truck Rammed into Traffic, Seven Injured

Oliver JJ Lane, Breitbart, October 8, 2019

A Syrian migrant male is under arrest and police are investigating a potential terrorist motive, reports claim, after a hijacked heavy goods vehicle (HGV) was driven at speed into a line of waiting cars in Germany Monday night.

Seven people were injured but none killed in a series of traffic collisions in the German town of Limburg, near Frankfurt, Monday night in an attack which several German newspapers now report police are considering may have had a terror motive. A 32-year-old Syrian male suspect named as ‘Mohammed O.’ who is reported to have been previously known to police for drugs and other offences is under arrest.

German news magazine Focus reports the suspect does not have a valid permit to be in Germany and is, therefore, an illegal migrant. {snip}

While police have so far refused to speculate on the motive behind the apparent attack, local newspapers including the Frankfurter Neue Presse reported an eyewitness who had gone to help the driver of the truck, believing he had been the victim of an accident but who backed away when he found the man talking in Arabic about Allah. {snip}
