New South Wales Police Commissioner Mick Fuller says the man alleged to have murdered one woman and stabbed another during a bloody rampage in Sydney on 13 August had no apparent connections to terror groups. Mert Ney, who was carrying a butcher’s knife and shouting "Allahu akbar!" , was tackled by onlookers until police and emergency services could arrive. Fuller said information found in Ney’s possession suggested he had "ideologies relating to terrorism but he has no links to terrorism". Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the attack was "deeply concerning", while NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who is currently in London, said her thoughts were with all the victims and witnesses of "this horrific incident".
