More of the willful ignorance that is steadily killing the free world.

“Iraqi Migrant Arrested After Arson Rampage in Austria,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, June 19, 2019:

A 45-year-old Iraqi migrant has been arrested after being suspected of setting multiple fires in the centre of Graz including at a district court and the city hall.

According to investigators, the attacks began at 10:40 a.m. at the district court of Graz-West with spokesman Elisabeth Dieber saying that the man sprayed what was described as an inflammable liquid in the court’s foyer and set fires before running away, Austrian tabloid Kronen Zeitung reports.

Soon after the initial arson, another fire was set in front of the Graz city hall which was witnessed by Christian Köberl, spokesman for Graz’s Mayor Seigfried Nagl. “Staff saw it on video surveillance and sounded the alarm,” he told Austrian media.

Köberl claimed that three fires were set and the smoke from the fires was so thick that he could not see more than half a metre in front of his face.

The suspect once again fled the scene only to emerge at the Department of Social Affairs and Family Law on the fourth floor of another government building where he once again set fires, causing 150 employees to be evacuated from the building.

The final arson attack took place at the nearby Graz central railway station where the suspect was eventually caught by police who had mobilised a large-scale deployment including deploying a helicopter.

No injuries have been reported as a result of the fires and police say that they are still unsure as to the motive for the attacks but have so far ruled out any terrorist connection….
