Ward End mosque attacker ruled to be insane

A man who stabbed a policeman and worshippers at a mosque was insane at the time of the offences, a jury has ruled.

Mohamoud Elmi stabbed PC Adam Koch and two worshippers in Ward End in Birmingham last June.

PC Koch and the two men, who were stabbed repeatedly, survived.

Elmi, 32, who was tried at Birmingham Crown Court, now faces a potentially indefinite period of detention in a secure hospital.
