A GUNMAN has opened fire in a Spanish supermarket while shouting "Allahu Akbar", police have said.

The man was reportedly carrying gasoline and gunpowder in his pockets as he entered the Mercadona shop, in As Lagoas, Ourense.

Numerous shoppers were inside making their purchases when the assailant, who was armed with a shotgun, entered and fired several shots.

Supermarket employees said he fired at least six shots during the terrifying ordeal.

One employee said the man, who was standing just a few metres from him, yelled "Allahu Akbar", which translates to "God is greatest".

Police arrived at the scene to arrest the attacker.

One witness told local media: "Agents came out with a vest shouting and pushing the people."

Officer Carlos Perez, who was already at the supermarket, revealed he was fired at when he tried to stop the attack.

The 38-year-old revealed the attacker was only apprehended after his colleagues arrived.

He said: "I had the impression that he ran out of ammunition."

It is believed no shoppers were injured during the attack.

Local media reported that the attacker had been living in the area for six months and had previously shopped in the supermarket.

The 35-year-old has been taken to a local police stations but refuses to speak to officers and shows no sign of remorse, according to insiders.

Police sources told local media the gunman, who has been previously arrested, is believed to have psychological problems.

The supermarket remained cordoned off while investigators questioned employees and witnesses.

I believe that is the year she threw all the Jews out of Spain.

Yep threw the jews and the muslims out.  Gave them the option of converting which some muslims and were given gifts.  Then they fell back and were booted 1609. 

The Jews went to the Ottoman empire of all places.

Not much in mainstream outlets on this, from Spain? Very little.

Let's not forget the Moors, Muslims were on the Iberian Peninsula for 600 years.

The Jews went to the Ottoman empire of all places.

There is a famous quote about that from an Ottoman Sultan at the time.

Sultan Bajazet welcomed warmly welcomed the fleeing Jews and said of the Spainish king, "How can you call Ferdinand of Aragon a wise king, the same Ferdinand who impoverished his own land and enriched ours?"
