% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Standby for one of three media narratives:

1) Mental illness syndrome (implying what? Islam is a mental illness?)
2) Sudden lone wolf syndrome
3) Islamofaubia made him do it

“Man shouting in Arabic threatens to detonate bomb in block of flats in Austria,”  By Rebecca Flood, The Express, October 3, 2016:

A BLOCK of flats was evacuated and special forces drafted in after a man threatened to detonate a bomb while ranting in Arabic.

The security alert saw part of a street cordoned off and residents inside the apartment block where the man was staying evacuated for safety.

A passer-by phoned the police after they heard the man threatening he had a bomb in the Austrian town of Floridsdorf.

The man, later identified as an Egyptian citizen, was shouting Arabic slogans out the window of his council flat around 1.30am.

A stand-off ensued for several hours on Saturday night, and the Austrian special forces were drafted in to deal with the potentially deadly situation.

The Viennese ambulance and fire service were also called to the scene as a precaution. Around 5am police were able to establish contact with the suspect, said to be 22-years-old, and he voluntarily let police inside his home.


He reportedly did not resist arrest and after a sweep of his flat no explosives were found. After being detained he was taken to hospital and examined by a doctor, who confirmed the man is suffering from mental health issues.  Nicolas Stockhammer, a security advisor to the Austrian government, previously declared the country was a “midfield” target for terror attacks.
