LONDON: Ali Harbi Ali, a 25 – year – old British national, has been arrested by the Anti – Terrorism Department in connection with the stabbing death of British MP David Emis.
Ali’s father, Herbie Ali Cullein, was an adviser to the Somali prime minister before emigrating to Britain. He says he was exhausted when he found out his son was the culprit. The accused had earlier contacted the constituency office seeking an opportunity to meet the MP.
David Emis, a Conservative, was stabbed during a public relations rally in Essex on Friday. In his blessing speech at St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican, Pope Francis condemned the assassination of a British MP, the suicide bombing of a Shia mosque in Afghanistan and the stabbing in Norway.
