Det er en BBC-producer, der blev vidne til at en mand gik løs på intetanende mennesker i Manchester nytårsaften under råbet “Allah” og “dette er for bombningen”.

A witness, a BBC producer who was at the station, said a man stabbed several people at the station, shouting “Allah” and linking his actions to “bombings in other countries.” (..=

Sam Clack, the BBC producer who witnessed the attack, told the broadcaster: “I just heard the guy shout, as part of a sentence, ‘Allah’.”

“I heard the man say, ‘As long as you keep bombing these countries this is going to keep happening.’,” Clack told BBC 5 Live radio in another interview. “It was very, very scary.”

Politiet er temmeligt sikker på at de efterforsker et terrorangreb.

“We are treating this as a terrorist investigation,” Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said, praising officers at the scene for their bravery in arresting the suspect within minutes.

Police said they would step up their presence in the city where a suicide bomb attack in May 2017 killed 22 people as they left a concert by pop star Ariana Grande.

Myndighederne er nervøse. De er ved at miste grebet.

Security officials say they are facing record levels of work in countering Islamist militants as well as far-right extremists after four major attacks last year.

Samtidig er det kommet frem, at angrebet på Manchester Arena kunne have været forhindret, hvis politiet havde fulgt bedre med. Det samme gentager sig igen og igen i Vesteuropa: Der mangler politisk vilje til at følge op og handle overfor islamister. De politiske signaler mangler. Hvor store forbrydelser skal der til før opinionen forstår, at det er politikernes undladelser der gør terroren mulig?

Politiet har fat i gerningsmanden, men noget navn har endnu ikke kommet ud. Det i sig selv er påfaldende.
