A man accused of attempted murder after a policeman and worshippers were stabbed at a mosque has been found not guilty due to insanity.
A jury at Birmingham Crown Court cleared 32-year-old Mohamoud Elmi of two charges of attempted murder and one of wounding with intent, after he stabbed a police officer and a worshipper at a mosque in Ward End on June 15th.
Mr Elmi is set to pass a hospital order tomorrow, that will see Mr Elmi held indefinitely in a secure mental health facility.
He will only be released if experts deem him no longer a danger to the public.
