Ludwigshafen is a city in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Yesterday at lunchtime a young Somali culture-enricher went on a stabbing rampage that left two people dead and another seriously wounded.
Early news reports about the incident said the perpetrator’s motive was unknown. Since then it has emerged that the high-spirited youngster attempted to dismember and slit the throats of at least some of his victims, and shouted “Allahu Akhbar” during the act. Readers are left to draw their own conclusions.

Bloody deed with two dead
Knife attack in Ludwigshafen: Somali shouted “Allahu Akhbar”
The Somali knife attacker who murdered two people in Ludwigshafen on Tuesday shouted “Allahu Akhbar” before he did it. The 25-year-old African cut off a victim’s hand during the bloody deed, reported Der Spiegel, citing security circles. Another man was injured in the attack before police were able to gun down the perpetrator.
Before the act, the Somali tried to visit his children who live with his ex-girlfriend. When he didn’t succeed, he freaked out and, according to the Bild newspaper, made threats with a machete and shouted in front of the apartment.
Somali is in the hospital
He then killed his two victims. They are said be two painters. He then ran into a drug store and seriously injured his third victim.
The injured Somali attacker is currently in a hospital. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
Bild reports: The victims (20, 35) are painters; one is said to have rushed to help the other. Both died from their stab and slash injuries. A neighbor: “A painter was thrown to the ground and then his left hand or arm was severed.”
Immediately after the crime, the armed attacker ran across a residential area, past shops and a kindergarten. In a drugstore 500 meters away on Comeniusstraße, the alleged killer stabbed another victim (27), seriously injuring the man.
Afterword from the translator:
He seemed to have missed the proper way of doing it, but at least he tried, didn’t he?
