Amor Ftouhi, a 50-year-old Canadian resident, has been charged with violence at an global airport, FBI Special Agent David Gelios said.Ftouhi legally entered the United States from Lake Champlain, New York, on June 16 before making his way to Flint, US authorities said. “We have no information to suggest any training”.- 9:38:48: Ftouhi stabs Neville with a large knife and yells “Allahu akbar”, the Arabic phrase for “God is great”. More charges against Ftouhi could be filed as prosecutors take the case to a grand jury seeking an indictment, Gelios said.”This morning, law enforcement officers from a number of organizations, including the FBI’s office in Flint, Michigan, responded to Flint’s Bishop International Airport after receiving the report of a stabbing of an airport police officer who is presently considered to be in stable condition”, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.Ftouhi appeared in a US federal court Wednesday and heard the charge against him.The Wednesday attack prompted an evacuation and beefed up security elsewhere in the MI city.President Donald Trump has been briefed on the attack, an administration official told CNN. Police in Canada were searching a Montreal apartment.The FBI said it believed the attack was an “isolated incident” and is investigating whether it was an act of terrorism. Local media reports that police do have a person in custody. CTV Montreal confirmed that the operation was connected with Ftouhi’s arrest.”I never had any problems with him”, Luciano Piazza told The Canadian Press. “I’m really surprised. I would see him at least once a month, when he paid his rent”.”(P) lease keep the attacked officer in your thoughts & prayers”, Snyder said on Twitter. He described Ftouhi as “cooperative” and talking to investigators.Ken Brown told The Flint Journal he was dropping off his daughter at the airport and saw the officer bleeding from his neck.Carpenter described the man in custody as appearing “blank, just totally blank”.The primarily regional airport, which had been evacuated, is “shut down and secure”, Lt Shaw said, and no other threats had been identified.Flint officials say they have stationed police officers around City Hall out of caution after an officer was critically hurt at the city’s airport a few miles away.And Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said in a statement “that several agencies are involved and working to ensure the situation is under control”.
