Well, here’s a little bit of good news for a Friday night. Two US Marines on a train from Brussels to somewhere in France were able to subdue a terrorist with an AK47 - and they were unarmed. There were over 500 passengers on board the train. One of them was shot in the neck, but reportedly his injuries are not life threatening, which is fantastic news. We should all pray for him to have a speedy recover. The Daily Mail has the details.
The two unarmed servicemen spotted the 26-year-old Moroccan acting suspiciously and heard him trying to arm his weapon in the toilet of the high speed train between Amsterdam and Paris.
The gunman got on the train in Brussels and attempted his attack soon after crossing the French border.
The 26-year-old Moroccan national, who was known to security services, came out of the toilet brandishing the gun and opened fire. Fortunately, two US Marines were nearby and overpowered him before he could massacre passengers.
The suspected terrorist had at least nine full magazines of ammunition holding almost 300 rounds. He was also carrying a knife.
Unfortunately, one of the Marines was shot although his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Unfortunately, a few people were injured, but it could have been so much worse.
