His initial target had been a Finnish soldier waiting at a bus station but he abandoned the plan as too risky.

Too high a chance the soldier would resist. Ah,the brave Islamic warrior!

#5 The police stopped him by shooting him in the fleshy part of his upper thigh, or thereabouts.

By his actions it appears to be a lot of fleshy parts between his ears too. Police finger a little jumpy on raising the projectile device and maybe pulled too soon.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
