A man burst onto the scene at the border crossing of Melilla with Morocco with a knife shouting “Allah is the greatest” and slightly injured a Spanish policeman.
The event took place early in the morning. Eight agents from the border post subdued the assailant and detained him without needing to use any firearm. One of them threw a triangular barrier used to regulate the traffic at him.
The National Police officers surround him at a reasonable distance and none of them drew their firearm, although several carry the shields and the regulatory defenses.
As soon assailant falls to the ground eight agents throw themselves on him. The police are investigating the motive of the incident to find out if it is an isolated fact or a premeditated action.
