ISIS claims Minnesota stabbings by “soldier of Allah”

The ISIS mouthpiece Amaq news Agency said Sunday that the man who stabbed nine people at a mall in St. Cloud Minnesota was “a soldier of Allah who carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of countries belonging to the crusader coalition.” The still-unnamed man, who was shot and killed, wore a private security uniform. He asked people if they were Muslim before attacking them shouting Allah is Great!

In New York, Gov. Andre Cuomo admitted Sunday, “A bomb exploding in New York is obviously an act of terrorism.” There was no evidence of an international terrorism link, he said, in the two bombs planted in Manhattan, one of which exploded in the Chelsea district, injuring 29 people. But “It is very, very early in the investigation.”

The governor reported that 1,000 additional New York State Police officers and National Guard troops will be deployed to patrol bus terminals, airports and subway stations
