Ayanle Hassan Ali was also found not criminally responsible in Toronto attack for lesser charges due to mental illness
A man who attacked Canadian soldiers at a military recruitment center in Toronto has been acquitted of terror-related charges and found not criminally responsible for lesser charges due to mental illness.
Judge Ian MacDonnell said Monday Ayanle Hassan Ali’s actions in May 2016 don’t fit the intended scope of Canadian terrorism laws. Three soldiers were hurt when he slashed at them with a kitchen knife. None of the injuries were serious.
