Afghan Islamist Stabs Two American Tourists in Amsterdam (VIDEO)

Two American tourists were wounded in Amsterdam Friday by an Afghan Islamist.

The Islamist sought and received asylum in Germany.

Here’s video of the attack at the train station.

Stars and Stripes reported:


A 19-year-old Afghan citizen had a “terrorist motive” for stabbing two Americans at the main train station in Amsterdam, city authorities in the Dutch capital said Saturday.

Amsterdam police shot and wounded the suspect after the double stabbing Friday at Central Station. The local government said hours later that it appeared the victims weren’t targeted for a specific reason, but added that investigators were not excluding any possibilities.

After the U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands on Saturday identified the people injured as American tourists, Amsterdam City Hall gave an update.
