Vienna knife attacker ‘clearly had sympathies with political Islam’, authorities say
Preliminary indications suggest that the 26-year-old man “clearly had sympathies with political Islam”, Michaela Kardeis, head of public security, told a news conference in Vienna.
Material seized at his home would be further analysed in the coming days, Kardeis said, but for now there are no more details about the attacker’s background or possible motives.
The man attacked the soldier outside the Iranian envoy’s residence just before midnight (2300 GMT) on Sunday, stabbing him several times as they wrestled on the ground.
