One woman killed, another injured as man goes on knife rampage in Sydney
Melbourne: A knife-wielding man shouting "Allahu Akbar' on Tuesday went on a stabbing rampage in Sydney's busy central business
district, allegedly killing one woman and injuring another before he was overpowered by passersby with a chair.
The attacker has been identified as 21-year-old Mert Ney and is said to have a history of mental illness. Police said the incident was currently not classified as a terror act.
Australian TV channels showed the attacker running through the King Street with a large kitchen knife yelling Allahu Akbar (God is Great).
The attacker, who was seen jumping on the bonnet and roof of a Mercedes, stabbed a 41-year-old woman passing on the street in the back
before he was held down with chairs and a milk crate by onlookers, police said.
