Stabbing of officer at Flint airport being investigated as act of terrorism

A Canadian man has been charged with committing violence at an airport after he allegedly stabbed a police officer in the neck Wednesday morning at the Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan.

The suspect has been identified as Amor Ftouhi of Quebec, and in the criminal complaint, it says Ftouhi used a large knife to stab Lt. Jeff Neville, and yelled, "Allahu akbar." The FBI is leading the investigation into the incident, which is being looked at as a possible act of terrorism, and said Ftouhi made a comment about people being killed in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and "we are all going to die."

The criminal complaint also said Ftouhi asked one of the officers who came to subdue him after the attack why he didn't kill him. Neville is in stable condition.
