A severely disturbed individual in Toulouse is now in custody after shouting Allahu Akbar while attacking seven people, three of whom were police officers. The man, a 42-year-old former psychiatric patient, threw punches in all directions, beating up shoppers this afternoon. Luckily police, who were only yards away, swiftly arrested the unarmed man who then burst into tears on the scene.
