Milan police shoot dead the Berlin massacre suspect.

Milan police shoots down the Berlin massacre suspect
The Berlin attack suspect has been shot dead after a gunfight with police in Milan, Italian police have said


The Tunisian shouted 'Allahu Akbar' and shot a police officer in the shoulder before he was shot dead moments after getting off a train from France.
A major international manhunt had been launched for the asylum seeker, who ploughed a lorry into crowds of revellers in the German capital on Monday night, killing 12 and maiming dozens of others.

He is understood to have pulled a gun on a police patrol after being stopped for a routine ID check before shooting an officer in the shoulder leaving him seriously injured.

A shoot out then took place at about 3am local time after he had stepped off a train from France and he was reportedly heard shouting 'Allahu Akbar' as he tried to flee.

France massacre killer finally gunned down
The Berlin Killer
Amri, 24, had just stepped off a train from France when he was stopped by a routine police patrol in the suburb of Sesto San Giovanni in the northern Italian city of Milan.

Two officers asked him for ID documents, at which point Amri pulled a gun from his backpack and shot one of the policemen in the shoulder.

A firefight ensued at about 3am local time, with Amri taking cowering behind a car as he tried to flee, but the suspect was shot and killed by the other officer – a trainee who had only been in the job a few months.

An Italian minister said today they had 'without a shadow of a doubt' killed the chief suspect in the Berlin massacre.

Muslims Attend Mass In France To Show Gesture of Solidarity After Church Attack

Muslims Attending Mass
Hey folks, I came across this article today and I felt it worthy of sharing..

Trust me..It bears good News.

We all have heard of the sad story about the murder of a Priest that happened some days ago..[if you haven't, I suggest you start buying papers now and stick to my blog].

In a show of solidarity, Muslims across France are attending Catholic Mass on Sunday after the brutal murder of the priest.
Two men attacked a church in the small town of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen on Tuesday, and slit 85-year-old Jacques Hamel's throat.

The attack was later claimed by the Islamic State through its Aamaq news agency.

The French Muslim council CFCM called for the gesture "to show their 'solidarity and compassion' over the priest's murder.

"We are all Catholics of France," said CFCM head Anouar Kbibech,

There was a particularly strong turnout at the cathedral in Rouen, near the site of the attack.

Cross Section Of Muslims In Church
"We are very moved by the presence of our Muslim friends and I believe it is a courageous act that they did by coming to us," Rouen's archbishop Dominique Lebrun said following the services.

Archbishop Lebrun used the moment to step into the congregation and greet Muslim leaders attending, as well as three nuns who were at the church in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray when Hamel was murdered.

A Muslim delegation also attended Mass in Nice, the city where an attacker plowed his truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day earlier this month, killing 84 people.

I would love to use this opportunity to admonish we "Nigerians" to show same love to one another irrespective of your religious and political affiliations.

That is the only way we could move forward as a country and as a Family.
