Gardai investigating terror as one line of inquiry in Dundalk stabbing


Gardai are investigation whether or not a terror attack could have been the motivation behind yesterday’s tragic violence spree.

The attacks left one man dead and a further two injured.

Gardai are liaising with Egyptian and British authorities in an attempt to establish if the violence was motivated by terrorism, according to The Irish Times.

However, they have stressed that terrorism is only one line of investigation they are following.

He has been detained on suspicion of murder at Dundalk Garda Station where he can be questioned for up to 24 hours.
