The 27 year old man charged in a double stabbing at an Armed Forces recruiting centre last week, appeared in court briefly on Thursday.
Ayanle Hassan Ali was remanded in custody until an appearance scheduled for next week.
He’s facing a total of nine charges, including three counts of attempted murder.
Police say he told them “Allah told me to do this. Allah told me to come here and kill people.”
