SYDNEY PARRAMATTA SHOOTER – FARHAD MOHAMMAD
Australian police say they believe a 15-year-old who killed a police worker in Sydney had links to terrorism.
On Friday 10/02/2015, a teenage boy, identified later as Farhad Khalil Mohammad (pic-L), gunned down a worker at close range outside the state police headquarters in Parramatta in western Sydney. He was killed by New South Wales police on the scene.
Police say Farhad Mohammad, who was of Iraqi-Kurdish heritage, had links to terrorism and probably acted alone.
The man killed in Friday’s incident has been named as Curtis Cheng, a finance worker who had worked for the New South Wales police force for 17 years. He was shot dead outside his office in Parramatta, a western suburb of Sydney, in what police describe as a targeted attack.
According to some reports, the gunman – Farhad Mohammad – shouted Islamic religious slogans before carrying out the attack.
Farhad Mohammad’s “exact motivation still remains a mystery to us”.spokesman for the New South Wales police said. The boy, who was born in Iran, was previously unknown to police or intelligence services, he added (see also – Lindt Cafe Terror Crisis )
Following the attack a group of young Muslims from Sydney, the youngest only 12 years old, were listed on a federal court order as potential Islamic militants.
** Farhad Mohammad’s sister, Shadi Jabar Khalil Mohammad, was killed in an airstrike near the Syrian city of Al Bab on 04/22/2016, alongside her Sudanese husband, Abu Saad al-Sudani. Shadi Jabar left to Syria just a day before her brother Farhad Mohammad killed Mr Cheng on Friday 10/02/2015.
