Man who shouted 'Allahu Akbar' in Lausanne faces trial
A man who caused panic on the Lausanne metro system on Friday by shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ meaning God is great in Arabic, has been released – but he will face trial for shouting threats.
The man told police he was having a paranoid breakdown and was calling for help from God.
A cantonal psychiatrist determined the Somali national was not required to be detained in hospital.
If found guilty of causing general alarm, he could face three years in jail.
