Excerpt of English translation:
There is a lot of uncertainty about the perpetrator’s age. He himself stated that he was 17 when the event took place. But information in the investigation has indicated that he is older than that, and after a medical examination using X-rays, it has been found that he was 18 years old as of the event, the Prosecutor’s office stated.
“At the hearing, I will provide evidence that he will be judged as a person over 18, an adult,” said Daniel Suneson.
The young man who is now being prosecuted was arrested on September 2, 2017, and was detained until October 18th. Since that time, he has been in a SiS [psychiatric] residence for young people in Uppsala.

HAMBURG (AFP): A 26-year-old Palestinian man goes on trial in a German court on Friday over his deadly knife rampage in a Hamburg supermarket that prosecutors believe was an Islamist attack.
Ahmad Alhaw took a 20-centimetre (eight-inch) knife from the shelves of a supermarket last July, using it to kill one and wound six in the assault. He was arrested after passers-by overpowered him.
Charging him with murder, as well as six counts of attempted murder and grievous bodily harm, prosecutors said he acted with a likely Islamist motive.
5. French Media Pushing Pro-Migrant Narrative: Claims It is “Beautiful” To Be “Invaded By Migrants”
Sicily has borne much of the brunt of the large wave of migrants coming into Italy. But despite this, the mayor of Palermo has declared his love for migrants saying that the future of Italy is “Google and Ali the immigrant”.
Mayor of Palermo Leoluca Orlando declared his love for newly arrived migrants from Africa, most of them coming into the country illegally claiming to be asylum seekers, in a largely pro-migrant article published by French centre-left newspaper Libération.
“If you ask me how many immigrants there are in Palermo, I do not answer 60, 70, or 80,000. Anyone who arrives in Palermo is a Palermo,” Orlando said.
“The future has two names: Google and Ali the immigrant. Google expresses the virtual connection and Palermo is today the best wired and computerised city in the entire Mediterranean. Ali the migrant represents the human connection. We want to be a welcoming and modern city,” he added.

8. Danish intelligence: al-Qaida could grow as IS weakens
Danish intelligence officials say al-Qaida “still has ambitions to attack the West,” adding that support for the extremist network may increase as the Islamic State group weakens.
Finn Borch Andersen, head of Denmark's Security and Intelligence Service, says al-Qaida's capability primarily lies in North, West and East Africa and in Yemen but the network has also “a significant presence” in Syria that may pose a threat to the West.
Borch Andersen says foreign fighters who have left Syria and Iraq represent “a terror threat” but added access to Europe is “restricted by increased security measures”, such as border controls within the European Union.

In light of the fact that he already stated that he tried to explode a bomb in the Times Square subway station “for the Islamic State,” this is just courtroom jihad: forcing the Infidel to waste time and resources that could be better spent elsewhere prosecuting him.
