Metro UK: Moment police close in on axeman with firebomb near Euro fan zone


“Footage has now come through of the moment police confronted an attacker at the Euro 2024 Championship earlier this afternoon. The clip shows the individual, dressed in black, holding an axe in one hand and what appears to be a Molotov cocktail in the other. The individual shouts at officers deployed in Hamburg’s Reppenbahm district before he is doused in pepper spray. Turning away from the spray, the attacker then heads off down the street in the opposite direction. […] Experts have recently said how the championship has presented an exceptionally ‘complex security challenge’ as authorities seek to monitor and contain a wide variety of different threats. Dr Hans-Jakob Schindler has identified terrorism, hooliganism and far-right violence as some of the most pressing concerns at present.”
