US Somali Community Concerned About Mall Stabbing

The Voice of America

The U.S. Somali community was quick to condemn the weekend stabbing attack at a Minnesota Mall in which at least nine people were wounded before a Somali American assailant was killed. The jihadist-linked Amaq news agency said Sunday that he was "a soldier of the Islamic State." The stabbing at St. Cloud shopping mall, north of Minneapolis, took place Saturday evening, coinciding with a blast in New York City. Zlatica Hoke reports that no link has been found between the two incidents.
