Melbourne stabbings: Isil claims suspected terror attack that left one dead

From the Telegraph. When I noticed this report first thing I'm sure the authorities were saying there was no terrorist motive . . .  Why do they always say this before they have time to know; they are not fooling anybody.

A man went on a stabbing spree in the centre of Melbourne on Friday after apparently setting a car alight, killing one person and bringing the city to a standstill. Police believe the deadly attack by a Somali-born Australian man was an act of terrorism, possibly designed to destroy a vehicle filled with gas cylinders in the city centre.

The man, who died after being shot by police, set a four-wheel drive on fire before stabbing three men, including one who died in hospital.

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) claimed the attack, its propaganda channel said."The perpetrator of the operation... in Melbourne... was an Islamic State fighter and carried out the operation... to target nationals of the coalition"

Victoria Police’s Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton said the man was known to state and federal counterterrorism agencies through his “family associations”. “His family members are certainly known to us from a terrorism perspective,” he said. “Counter-terrorism investigations under way.”

Some witnesses claimed he was yelling “Allahu akbar”, though police said this was not confirmed.
