I see TPTB are at it again...
How did Tuesday's attack unfold?
At about 20:00 local time (19:00 GMT), a man opened fire close to the famed Christmas market near Place Kléber, which attracts thousands of visitors.
So, according to the "shooter" 10+1 [himself] = 11...that's probably why he didn't want to "drop" the taxi driver and make it 12...The attacker boasted to the taxi driver that he had killed 10 people, and also said he had been injured during a firefight with soldiers.
He ordered the taxi driver to drop him near the police station in Neudorf. When he got out of the vehicle, he fired at police officers before escaping.
Ah! So the Police being seen at the "shooter's" residence BEFORE the shooting [or whatever Xmas play was put on] would be conveniently explained away if anyone were to ask...Police were seeking him on Tuesday morning in connection with another case, but did not find him at home.
Of course, when one is about to embark on, essentially, a suicide mission, one leaves a grenade and ammunition [which one will be expending at a furious rate] behind, unless Place Kleber Market was doing special xmas sales on ammo?...A search of his apartment in Neudorf revealed a grenade, a rifle, four knives - two of which were hunting knives - and ammunition.
We should ban the age 29 and have people go from 28 to 30 and this will hopefully prevent them becoming radicalised at such an impressionable age...Chekatt, 29, had a string of criminal convictions in France and Germany and had become a radical Islamist in jail.
So, no doubt about this time...9:00 in the evening...Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said three police officers had spotted a man matching Chekatt's description on rue du Lazaret, in the Neudorf area of Strasbourg at 21:00 local time
How well he had 2+7 convictions, now some of them being in Switzerland and not just France & Germany!He had 27 convictions for crimes including robbery spanning France, Germany and Switzerland, and had spent considerable time in prison as a result.
It is better to include "fellow Muslims" as this shows Joe Public it isn't just non-Muslims affected plus, even those poor refugees from war-torn countries can come to Europe and be consumed by these terrorist acts...strange that they say he was from Afghanistan, not that he was Afghanistani or that he was French even...The death of Kamal Naghchband, originally from Afghanistan, was announced on Thursday. The father of three died in hospital. His mosque announced that his funeral will take place after Friday prayers.
So we have someone, un-named, but DEFINITELY from Strasbourg, killed...nice to know that in the event of my untimely death, people may not know who I was but they will at least know which city mourns for me...retired bank worker aged 61, from Strasbourg, was also killed in the attack, according to Le Figaro.
We have the "Beeb" reporting that this victim is "believed" to be one nationality when a newspaper in Thailand confirms that they were a Thai-national, yet nothing from the French Authorities/Le Figaro about this? How unusual for the victim to be 4+5 years of age...The third victim is believed to be a Thai tourist who was on holiday with his wife.
Anupong Suebsamarn, 45, has been named by Thai media as one of the dead.
Merry Xmas everyone!
Edit: added his full name and also comment about the Thai's age!
