Knives taken off supermarket shelves in New Zealand after terrorist attack | TheHill

A New Zealand supermarket chain announced that it was temporarily removing all scissors and knives from its shelves following an attack that left several people injured at one of its stores on Friday.

A general manager of supermarket chain Countdown said it was also considering if they would sell such items in the future.

“Last night, we made the decision to temporarily remove all knives and scissors from our shelves while we consider whether we should continue to sell them,” Kiri Hannifin, Countdown’s general manager for safety, said in a statement on Saturday.

“This is in no way a reflection on our customers, but an act of support for our team. We want all of our team to feel safe when they come to work, especially considering the events of yesterday,” Hannifin said.

Reuters noted, citing local reports, that sharp knives had been taken off shelves at other supermarkets too.

On Friday, a Sri Lankan national who was previously known to security forces in New Zealand entered a Countdown supermarket, going after several customers and stabbing them, witnesses said.  New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern noted that the attacker “was a supporter of ISIS ideology.”

Officials said Friday that six people were injured from the attack, with three transported to the hospital in critical condition. One person was in serious condition, and two others were in moderate condition.

New Zealand supermarket stabbing: Government to toughen anti-terror laws – BBC News

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern has vowed to toughen anti-terror laws following Friday’s knife attack in Auckland by a man who was under police surveillance.

“We must be willing to make the changes that we know may not necessarily have changed history, but could change the future,” she said at a news briefing.

The man, a Sri Lankan national, stabbed seven people in a supermarket. Three of them are in a critical condition.

The attacker, a known supporter of Islamic State, was shot dead by police.

He has now been identified as Ahamed Aathil Mohamed Samsudeen, a 32-year-old Tamil, who arrived in New Zealand in 2011 and sought refugee status.

Ms Ardern, who described the stabbings as a “terrorist attack”, said she expected that changes to the country’s counter-terrorism legislation would be backed by parliament by the end of September.

The legislation is expected to make it easier to convict someone for planning a terror attack.

Samsudeen had been arrested a number of times before Friday’s incident. But Ms Ardern said that every legal avenue to keep him out of the community had been exhausted.

Pittsburgh stabbing victim says he was saved by neighbor who opened fire on attacker

The victim of a stabbing in Pittsburgh said he was saved when a neighbor intervened.

That neighbor said he opened fire on the attacker, who then drove off despite having a gunshot wound to the leg.

The incident happened a little before 7:30 a.m. Monday inside an apartment building on the 200 block of West Warrington Avenue, which falls on the line between the city’s Beltzhoover and Mount Washington neighborhoods.

According to a criminal complaint, the victim said he woke up to his friend, Juan Hernandez, 54, punching him in the face and stabbing him with a screwdriver.

The victim said he believes he would have died if a neighbor hadn’t intervened.

That neighbor said they opened fire on Hernandez, who police said ran out to his vehicle and drove away.

Hernandez was pulled over two hours later and taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Police said the driver’s side window of his vehicle appeared to be broken from gunfire.

Hernandez was taken to the hospital for evaluation and later charged with multiple offenses including attempted homicide and aggravated assault.

A motive for the attack has not been determined though one witness did say they knew Hernandez to be friends with the victim.

Police said Hernandez told them multiple stories about the attack including claiming the victim was the one who shot him.

There’s no word on when Hernandez will be arraigned on the charges he’s facing.
