A retired police lieutenant, now airport officer, has been stabbed in the neck in a terrorist attack at a Flint Mich. airport.
The person in custody charged with terrorism offenses is a 50-year-old Canadian living with his family in Montreal.
Amor Ftouhi exited a washroom, where he dropped his bags, came out with a knife and yelled, “Allah is greater” in Arabic before stabbing the officer in the neck.

They feel it is an isolated incident and not part of a greater plan.
