This morning in Flint, Michigan at the Bishop International Airport, outside of the T.S.A. area (security checks), the FBI began an investigation on a possible terrorist attack. The accused 52 Year-Old Canadian Amor Ftouhi, which first entered the U.S. on June 16th through Lake Champlain, New York had attacked Lieutenant Jeff Neville.
According to witnesses, Amor shouted “Allahu Akbar” and blamed the United States for the deaths in Iraq, Syria, & Afghanistan prior to stabbing Lieutenant Jeff Neville with a large knife. Amor has been taken into custody and is being investigated by the F.B.I. while Lieutenant Neville has been reported to be in stable conditions after having surgery and being admitted in “critical” conditions.
Law enforcement officials with direct knowledge of this investigation had told NBC News that Amor was not in any F.B.I. Databases prior to this stabbing. The F.B.I. is currently leading this investigation in coordination with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tabacco, Firearms & Explosives, as well as the Michigan State Police, & some Canadian Law Enforcement divisions.
After the incident occurred, Bishop Airport closed for several hours and that the people in the airport were successfully evacuated. Due to the closing, 5 flights were unable to take-off and were grounded until roughly 4PM, though planes were still permitted to land.
At the moment, officials are stating that this is an isolated incident and that there are no signs of more possible terrorist attacks in the Michigan area any time soon.
