A fanatic tries to grab the Olympic torch from a lady in Gravesend, Kent, UK, as can be seen from this video.
To be able to carry the Olympic torch is quite an honor especially in your native country. So my heart goes out to this woman for what she had to go through, even though she doesn’t seem to be physically harmed.
DigitalJournal.com describes the attacker as a 17-year old Muslim fanatic.
The BBC reports that the 17-year old is accused of assaulting a police officer, common assault and a public order offense.
He appeared at Medway Youth Court on Saturday and was bailed on condition that he wouldn’t be “intentionally present” at any Olympic or Paralympic-related event. The case has been adjourned until Tuesday.
Why has this man been allowed bail?
