JUST IN: Terrorist hijacks school bus with 51 children, douses it with gas and sets it on FIRE…

The worst of the worst almost happened today in Milan, Italy.

A Senegalese terrorist hijacked a bus full of school children, doused it with gas and set it on fire.

Fortunately, none of the children were seriously harmed.

Here’s more from the UK Express:

The man hijacked the school bus with 51 children on board as he was driving them back to school from a sporting event. He reportedly shouted to the children that he wanted to kill himself in protest to Italian migration policy in the Mediterranean. The driver allegedly told the schoolchildren he was going to take them to Linate Airport as he shouted: “No one is going to get out of here alive”.

One of the children called his parents to alert the police.

Once the police were able to track the bus down on the motorway, in an attempt to sidetrack police cars he came to a stop and covered the bus with petrol to then set it on fire.

This is a video of the bus being hijacked:


The 47-years-old man, originally from Senegal, was immediately arrested by the police at the scene.

Luca De Marchis, provincial commander of the Carabinieri in Milan said, explained that “the man was not armed” and “did not tie the kids”.

He is now under investigation for attempted massacre and kidnapping.

None of the children was seriously harmed but 12 were taken to hospital for minor burns and inhalation of fumes.

The Police helped the schoolchildren escape by smashing the back window whilst the man was still torching the bus.

Twelve children and two adults were taken to the hospital.

Despite being taken to a hospital the Emergency Services claimed no one is seriously injured.

The Senegalese man had Italian citizenship and was arrested by police. According to the UK Express, he had a criminal history of sexual abuse and drunk driving.

Thanks to law enforcement and fire officials, a horrible massacre was averted. The kid who called his parents is a hero and should be applauded.
