‘Long live the caliphate’: ‘Muslim knifeman shouted Islamic slogans as he stabbed two people’ in Manchester

A knife attack which saw two rail passengers and a policeman stabbed by a man shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ is being treated as terrorism, Manchester police have said.

Anti-terror officers raided the 25-year-old suspect’s home in the Cheetham Hill area of the city today as they confirmed two of the victims will be in hospital ‘for some time’.

Footage of the aftermath of the ‘frenzied’ attack at Manchester’s Victoria Station last night shows a man being pinned down by five police officers, with blood stains on the pavement.
