Knife attack woman says she would do it again

Federal Criminal Court, Bellinzona

The woman on trial in Ticino after attacking two women in a seemingly Jihadist attack has told the court she would do it again.

The woman is charged with attempted murder and a terror attack. A further charge has been added by prosecutors of financing Islamic State. 

The judge asked her if she would do it again – she answered yes, but ‘more efficiently’. 

The court heard that the woman suffers from a disorder similar to schizophrenia – but the attack was pre-mediated and not impulsive.
