I guess the jihadi didn’t get the memo that National Geographic regularly helps to propagandize for Islam in its magazine.
Oil-rich Gabon has a small Muslim population consisting mostly of foreign workers, although the precise number is not known. It is not normally considered a high risk country for jihadist violence.
Two Danish journalists wounded in Islamist knife attack in Gabon
LIBREVILLE (Reuters) – An attacker wielding a knife and crying “Allahu Akbar” has wounded two Danish journalists in Gabon’s capital Libreville, the Gabonese defense minister said.
The two reporters for the National Geographic channel were in a popular market for tourist souvenirs on Saturday, when a Nigerien national living in Gabon lunged at them with the knife, Defence Minister Etienne Kabinda Makaga said in a statement on Gabonese television.
After his arrest, the 53-year-old suspect, who has lived in Gabon for two decades, told authorities he was carrying out a revenge attack against America for recognizing Israel’s capital as Jerusalem, Makaga said, giving no further explanation.
