VILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) — Lithuanian police are hanging up their Kalashnikovs — handed out to officers soon after the Paris assaults — pursuing two uncomfortable incidents involving the Soviet-manufactured assault rifles.

Main Commissioner Linas Pernavas said Monday that a variety of automated weapons will continue to be used by officers but “the AKs (Kalashnikovs) will be eliminated from our arsenal.”

The determination follows two incidents that led Inside Minister Saulius Skvernelis — accountable for the law enforcement power — to tender his resignation previous week.

On Nov. seventeen, a civilian was strike by a bullet from a Kalashnikov fired unintentionally by a policeman on patrol.

Two times afterwards, a handcuffed convict managed to steal a rifle while escaping a law enforcement escort. Officers acknowledged the 24-year-outdated drug addict fled from an unlocked vehicle with the Kalashnikov, which had been remaining unattended on the entrance seat.

The fugitive traveled on general public buses to a variety of areas of the capital during his escape and was not caught till five several hours later on during a manhunt involving three,000 officers and a helicopter. He was discovered hiding in a shower cubicle in a local community heart around the principal railway station, exactly where the gun and handcuffs ended up later on found.

Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite criticized Skvernelis’ actions during the escape, accusing him of “demonstrating inadequate judgment and inappropriate interaction.”

The popular minister handed in his letter of resignation late Friday but Primary Minister Algirdas Butkevicius refused to signal it. He retains his ministerial put up until at minimum afterwards this week when Butkevicius returns from an official check out to China.

Law enforcement: Palestinian killed following stabbing guy in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (AP) — Two Palestinian teenage girls stabbed a 70-year-old Palestinian man with scissors outside a central Jerusalem market on Monday before they were shot by police — in a fresh burst of violence ahead of the arrival of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Police said one of the attackers was killed, while the second was wounded. The man, apparently mistaken for an Israeli, suffered wounds to his head and back, while a 27-year-old bystander was lightly wounded by stray gunfire.

The attack was the latest in a two-month spate of Israeli-Palestinian violence that erupted in Jerusalem in mid-September and quickly spread across Israel and into the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Kerry is expected to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders on Tuesday to help ease tensions, in what is to be his first visit to the area in a year.

The incident occurred near Mahane Yehuda, a popular outdoor market in downtown Jerusalem. It caused a panicked scene in the busy area.

A witness, Akram Ezyy, said the attackers looked like were “about 12.” He said they were chasing after two old women with scissors when they were shot.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement the police officer ordered the girls to halt their attack, and shot them when they came toward him. The statement did not say how close the girls got to the officer.

The current wave of unrest begin in mid-September over tensions surrounding a sensitive Jerusalem holy site. Eighteen Israelis have been killed, mostly in stabbings, while 88 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire. Of them, 56 are said by Israel to be attackers and the rest were killed in clashes with security forces.

Israel says the violence stems from Palestinian incitement and incendiary videos on social media. Most of the attackers have been young Palestinians in their teens and early 20s. The Palestinians say the violence is rooted in frustration over nearly a half century of Israeli occupation and lack of hope for obtaining independence. Palestinians have also accused Israel of using excessive force.
