A French man allegedly cried “Allahu Akbar” during a stabbing attack that left a 21-year-old British woman dead in front of up to 30 onlookers at a backpackers hostel in Australia’s north-east.

The 29-year-old suspect allegedly repeated the phrase – which means God is greatest in Arabic – when arrested by Queensland police who were “confronted with a terrible scene” at the hostel in Home Hill – about 100km south of Townsville – on Tuesday night.

Steve Gollschewski, a deputy police commissioner, said the alleged offender’s comments “may be construed as being of an extremist nature” and investigators were working with Australian federal police to establish his motives.

But police were “not ruling out any motivations at this early stage, whether they be criminal or political”.

  1. Nothing to do with Islam. It’s mental illness en masse worldwide compelling people to kill and talk in tongues “Allahu Akbar”
    The western governments have the solution, increase Muslim immigration a thousandfold.
