The man charged in a suspected terrorist attack at Flint’s airport will spend the Independence Day weekend behind bars.
In a calm voice, Amor Ftouhi said “Allahu Akbar” twice as he entered a federal courtroom in Flint this morning. Ftouhi was shackled and wearing an orange jumpsuit. He also wore a small surgical mask which a court spokesman says is for "unspecified health reasons."
Ftouhi is from Montreal. He has joint Canadian-Tunisian citizenship.
The hearing was to determine if a judge would grant bail for the man accused to stabbing a police officer at Flint’s Bishop International Airport. The officer is recovering from a 12-inch gash to his neck.
