(THE BLAZE) — The Associated Press came under fire Tuesday when they translated an infamous Arabic phrase used by Islamic extremists to its English equivalency.

On Tuesday, Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, allegedly shot and killed three white people at random in the span of less than two minutes in Fresno, California.

According to police, Muhammad screamed “Allahu akbar” during his arrest, which in Arabic means “God is great.”
