Man in court over Manchester NYE stabbings

A man has appeared in court over the stabbings of three people on New Year’s Eve in Manchester.

Mahdi Mohamud, 25, faces three counts of attempted murder and a terror charge after a manual entitled "the seven most lethal ways to strike with a knife" was allegedly found in his possession.

The defendant, of Cheetham Hill, was remanded at Oxford Crown Court.

A couple in their 50s and a police officer were stabbed at Victoria railway station at 9.00pm on 31 December.

Mohamud is due to stand trial from 25 November.
