Rapidly approaching the point where we need an "Unlimited acts of minor terror" Thread:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-29753347
olice in New York are investigating whether a man who attacked two officers with an axe before being shot dead was linked to Islamist extremism.
One officer was being treated for a serious head wound after the attack on Thursday in the Queens borough.
Commissioner William Bratton said police were trying to establish a motive but did not rule out terrorism.
US media indentified the attacker as Zale Thompson, 32, but this has not been confirmed by police.
The SITE monitoring group said he had posted statements on YouTube and Facebook that "display a hyper-racial focus in both religious and historical contexts, and ultimately hint at his extremist leanings".
SITE, which monitors radical Islamist groups, said a post by him in September had described jihad as "a justifiable response to the oppression of the Zionists and the Crusaders".
After the attack, which took place on Thursday afternoon, Mr Bratton was asked whether it could be terror related.
"This early on, we really cannot say yes or no to that question," he said.
Yet another one. I hate to point at co-incidences and suggest something potentially wrong, but that's at least 3 this week of a similar level and nature. I'd say that's getting quickly to the point where you can rule out co-incidence and start considering control.
