Somali Refugee Accused Of Terrorism Was On A Watch List

A suspect has been charged in an attack which saw an Edmonton officer stabbed and four people injured when they were hit by a rental truck fleeing police.

Sharif is charged with five counts of attempted murder and four counts of unsafe operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.

Degrand said he was flagged in 2015 for extremist ideologies, and police interviewed him at the time, but he said charges were not warranted after an "exhaustive investigation".

Thirty-year-old Abdulahi Hassan Sharif, an Edmonton resident, faces multiple charges including five counts of attempted murder and will appear in court Tuesday morning.

The chaos began outside a Canadian Football League game on Saturday night when police say a white Chevrolot Malibu rammed a traffic-control barricade and sent an officer flying five metres into the air. The terrorist, who had an ISIS flag in the front seat of his vehicle, then jumped out of the auto and attacked the officer with a knife, stabbing him repeatedly.

A few hours later, a U-Haul van was stopped at an impaired driving check stop north of downtown on Wayne Gretzky Drive. Knecht said the truck deliberately hit four pedestrians.

Constable Mike Chernyk, who was hit by a auto and stabbed repeatedly, emerged with remarkably few injuries, and was released from hospital early Sunday.

Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, 30, is accused of running down a police officer with his auto in Edmonton, Alberta, and then stabbing him repeatedly.

One person suffered a fractured skull and was initially in critical condition, but had since been upgraded to stable.

UKIP's next leader: Who will save (or scuttle) the ship?
A source told express.co.uk: "If Anne Marie Waters win the party won't exist in its current form in two years". Instead, somewhat surprisingly, the party members went for a former Liberal Democrat.

He said the call was made to keep the high-speed pursuit through the downtown, busy with late night bar and night-club goers, because of the threat posed by the suspect.

"The constable is doing surprisingly well and is receiving support from the Edmonton Police Service and his family", he said.

"If we hadn't pursued this vehicle in light of the use of the auto earlier to run over a police officer and the history of large vehicle attacks in Germany, Spain, and other European countries, the outcome would've been much worse", EPS Insp.

Knecht said when the U-haul pulled over for the checkpoint, the driver produced identification linking him to the registered owner of the Malibu. Officers smashed through the windshield and tossed in a stun grenade to distract the driver. They tried to arrest him, but he resisted so they hit him with a Taser.
