Unarmed Marines take down AK wielding Muslim Terrorist

August 22, 2015

A US Marine is in critical condition after tackling a Kalashnikov-wielding gunman on a train between Amsterdam and Paris, according to French media reports.

The serviceman, who has not been named, was one of two Americans on leave – possibly embassy guards – who tackled the 26-year-old Moroccan national to the ground after hearing him load up a gun in the toilet.

In the scuffle, one of the Marines was shot and is now in a critical condition, France Info reports. He was airlifted to CHR hospital in Lille, France. The other Marine was stabbed, and has been taken to the central hospital of Arras with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

Addressing reporters at the station in Arras, northern France, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve praised their bravery.

‘I would like to express our gratitude to and admiration for these two American passengers,’ said Cazeneuve.

‘Thanks to the calm composure of the two American passengers, we have avoided a tragedy. Without them we would have faced a terrible drama.’

‘They were particularly courageous and showed extreme bravery in extremely difficult circumstances.’
