France: Man 'shouting Allahu Akbar attacks seven people, including three police officers in Toulouse'

(Daily Mail) A former psychiatric patient viciously punched four passers-by then attacked three police officers while shouting Allahu Akbar in Toulouse today.

The enraged man, 42, kicked and punched the officers before they managed to contain and arrest him.

The man continued to scream Allahu Akbar - Arabic for God is Great - as he was wrestled to the ground before bursting into tears.

One witness said: 'We were chatting and he jumped on us. He first caught my son and then beat my daughter. We just ran.'

Two of the civilian victims were taken to the Toulouse-Rangueil hospital.

French police say the alleged perpetrator was released from a psychiatric hospital in April.
