Video: Muslim Man Runs Into Christian Wedding in Spain, Attacks Priest

Last Saturday, a 22-year-old man interrupted a Catholic wedding in the San Pablo Church in Valladolid, Spain, when he ran inside, shouted "Allahu Akhbar," and attacked the priest. The shocked couple could do nothing but watch in sheer amazement at what was happening:

Witnesses for the groom were eventually able to chase the man off the altar and out of the church building after he tried to attack several people present at the wedding. He even tried to throw Catholic sacramental objects at the churchgoers.

Police were able to identify and arrest the attacker, who will now be prosecuted for causing public disorder, threatening others, and for insulting religious sensibilities. The priest who blessed the wedding explained afterward that a "group of young troublemakers" started making noise at the back of the church. Next, one of the "young people" shouted "Allahu Akhbar" and charged the altar. "A lot of people," the priest went on to explain, "including the bride's mother, were crying, and there were people who had already jumped out of the pews because we did not know whether this person came alone or not, or if he was armed.".
