There have been arrests of some of the people alleged to be responsible for the various attacks which took place in the US and Canada over the weekend.
First, from Calgary, Alberta: Although Global News called it a knife attack, the weapon in question is pictured below:
This type of weapon is called a "Falcata" and has quite an interesting history.
But no one would call it a knife. It is 26 inches long.
However the Calgary incident may not have been political. There is very little information on the suspect other than he wore a Blue Jays T shirt and a baseball cap and yelled, "I'm going to get you" according to an eye witness, which seems more personal than political.
Meanwhile, the suspect in the Jersey Marine Fun Run event bombing and the Chelsea bombing, who survived a shootout with police, is under arrest.
He has been identified as Ahmad Khan Rahami.
The owner of a bar in Linden, New Jersey, said he spotted bombing suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami sleeping in the doorway of his bar this morning and alerted police.Harinder Bains, owner of Merdie's Tavern, said he had been watching CNN on his laptop from another business he owns across the street. He said he recognized Rahami and called police.
Also the Daily Mail reports that five people have been arrested for the New York City bombings on September 17, which injured over 30 people.
According to Breitbart, the suspect came back from a trip to Afghanistan with a much higher degree of Islamic devotion.
Rahami lived in Elizabeth, where police found five pipe bombs at the city’s train station in a bag, and he worked at his family’s business, First American Fried Chicken. Patrons of the restaurant described Rahami to the New York Times as “gregarious” and friendly, Western-seeming and polite to customers. “He’s a very friendly guy, he gave me free chicken,” Ryan McCann, a regular at the restaurant, said. Rahami, he claimed, “always talked about fast Honda civics, about how he loved them.”
[...] “He was really religious [after the trip],” Flee Jones, 27, identified as a friend of Rahami, told the local news outlet.
As reported earlier at The Rebel, the suspect in the Minneapolis mall has been identified as Dahir Adan, a Somali Muslim living in Minnesota.
But no identification as so far been released for the suspect in the Calgary mall incident.
