Allah-holics in action. They don’t need alcohol to make them foolish or violent: They have the Quran.
A gang of men attacked an American student while he was drinking in the street – grabbing a glass bottle from his hands and smashing it over his head, a court was told.
Francesco Hounye, 23, from Florida, had been in Britain for just three days when he was set upon by the men while he was walking home with a friend in Shadwell, east London.
Shaleem Uddin, 20, Shadhat Hussain, 19, Kamrul Hussain, 22, and Massom Rahman, 22, targeted Mr Hounye when they saw him swigging from a bottle of Jagermeister.
They then chased him, beat him, and smashed the bottle over his head, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.
CCTV footage shows Mr Hounye being kicked mercilessly as he lay crouched in the road.
The student suffered extensive injuries – including a smashed eye socket.
A fourth man, Samad Uddin, 24, is on trial for grievous bodily harm after the four others admitted their roles in the attack.
