A manhunt is underway for four Middle Eastern bearded men who rained terror on a packed cinema by storming inside screaming ‘Allahu Akbar.’ Witnesses say one man burst inside the Blacktown cinema in Sydney’s west chanting the battle cry of Islamic jihadists committing mass murder.
Daily Mail The man then left and returned with three other men to continue chanting the Arabic phrase, leaving movie-goers fearing an impending attack, 9News reported.
The men are described by police as being of Middle Eastern appearance, each with a beard, in their 20s and wearing dark clothing. A NSW Police spokesperson confirmed to Daily Mail Australia they searched the cinemas after reports of the intrusion.
Police are calling on anyone with footage or images of the incident to come forward in the hope of tracking down the men. The incident comes amid heightened tensions in Australia after a series of ISIS-inspired attacks recently including a deadly siege last week.
