He has ties to the Somali government.
The 25-year-old knifeman who killed British MP Sir David Amess Friday is believed to be a “British Muslim of Somali descent,” according to the Daily Mail.
Earlier, Essex police announced they were keeping an open mind on whether the stabbing was a terror incident, but the investigation is now being run by counterterrorism police, according to British reports.
The stabbing took place while the Conservative Party lawmaker was meeting with constituents at the Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea.
John Lamb, a local Conservative councilor who was present at the church where the attack occurred, said: “There were people waiting to see him, and one of them literally got a knife out and just began stabbing him … He was treated by emergency services for at least two hours but, sadly, died at the scene.”
In other words, the terrorist is one of those “migrants” in Britain that brought the Islamic ideology with him.
