Appalling attack

This week’s appalling terror attack in Paris involved a vehicle being driven at speed into soldiers in the wealthy Parisian suburb of Levallois-Perret, north of the city center and the Arc de Triomphe, causing serious injuries. This has prompted comparisons with other terror attacks around the world where vehicles have been used as weapons.

News.com.au (a part of News Corp Australia) bills itself as “Australia’s #1 News Site” with over 60 million monthly unique visitors.

In an article on the Paris attack, the site included other examples of vehicle attacks around the world, saying that the Paris attack was “…the latest in a disturbing trend of terrorists or otherwise disturbed people driving their cars into crowds with the express purpose of killing innocent people.”

News.com.au then goes on to describe the following incidents:

  • June 3 – London Bridge
  • April 8 – Stockholm
  • March 22 – Westminster
  • January 20 – Melbourne
  • December, 2016 – Berlin
  • July, 2016 – “Bastille Day” attack (Nice)
  • December, 2014 – France
  • April, 2009 – Dutch Royal Family

But which country is conspicuous by its absence?

    I always thought that News Corp was far better than the rest of the media pack.
    Such a disappointing, incomplete report.
