Venice's right-wing mayor has ordered police to shoot ANYONE who shouts 'Allahu Akbar' - rather than risk a terror attack.
“If anyone runs into St Mark’s Square shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar’, we will take him down."
Luigi Brugnaro claims the Italian tourist hotspot is safer than Barcelona - where 14 people died being run down by a terrorist - saying that, "in contrast, we keep our guard up". Police in Venice have been ordered to take no risks - and fire on suspected terrorists.
Video has subsequently emerged of the left-wing mayor of Florence, Dario Nardella, rushing up to Brugnaro after the speech shouting "Allahu Akbar!" and laughing.
Left-wing mayor, Nardella has since taken to Facebook to apologize for his actions.
