Terror attack in Australia

Sounds pretty crazy and lucky that more people weren't injured or killed when the make shift bomb didn't explode. I don't know what the factors are surrounding this incident, but thankfully he was only brandishing a knife when confronted by police. Hard to say yet, but maybe due to the gun laws in Australia he was unable to obtain one and make this an even worse situation with dozens of casualties.

Officers were initially called to reports of a car fire near Bourke Street, a busy thoroughfare, at about 16:20 local time (05:20 GMT), just before the evening rush hour.

Police later discovered that the vehicle was packed with "barbecue-style" gas cylinders. Footage circulating on social media shows the vehicle crashed into shop fronts, engulfed by flames.

However, the cylinders did not explode, police said.

"As they got out of the car, they were confronted by a male brandishing a knife and threatening them," Supt David Clayton said at a news conference.

It's a hopeless situation...
