Police say a 27-year-old man has been arrested after walking into a Canadian Forces recruiting office armed with a knife and allegedly stabbing two Forces members in an incident that is being investigated for possible (Muslim?) terrorist activity.
UPDATE 1! A brazen knife attack that sent two Canadian soldiers to hospital was disturbing enough, but police sources say it was the attacker uttering the word “Allah” that prompted Toronto Police to call in terror experts. “Some heard him say, ‘Praise Allah’ and others heard ‘Allah.’ a police source told the Sun. “Several heard the man use this terminology. It’s not something you take a chance on and this is why the call was made to the police agencies who handle terror issues.” SOURCE
UPDATE 2! Ayanle Hassan Ali, (Montreal-born but likely a Somali Muslim) accused of stabbing at Canadian Forces centre, facing 9 charges. According to Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders, Ali said, “Allah told me to do this, Allah told me to come here and kill people,” during the attack.
- Three charges of attempted murder.
- Two charges of aggravated assault.
- Three charges of assault with a weapon.
- One count of carrying a weapon dangerous to the public.
