Security camera video above was just released from a November incident at a Melbourne, Australia bank.

ABC (Australia):

A Melbourne court has released confronting CCTV vision of an asylum seeker from Myanmar setting fire to a bank at Springvale, in Melbourne’s south-east, in an “act of retribution” for being kept waiting.

Security vision from inside the Commonwealth Bank branch shows Nur Islam, 22, pouring petrol on the ground between the ATMs inside the front entrance and the middle of the service area.

He then ignites it with a cigarette lighter as customers try to flee.

Islam can be seen running to the back of the bank engulfed in flames.

Prosecutor Gavin Silbert QC told the hearing the fire caused the bank to fill with smoke, creating panic and confusion.
