A teenager was captured on video today yelling “Allah hu akbar,” God is great in Arabic, while trying to snatch the Olympic torch from a runner as the flame made its way to London for the start of the Summer Games.
It is not the first time bystanders have attempted to snatch the iconic Olympic torch from its carriers, but many observers were quite surprised today to witness an unidentified 17-year-old make a lunge for the torch before being tackled by guards alongside the runner. Some were even more confused to hear the young man yell out “God is great!”
I don’t know with this Olympics. Getting bad feelings there is going to be some terror attack!
