ESCANABA, MI--   Police in Escanaba are investigating a stabbing in the city Monday afternoon.

FLINT, MI (AP)--   Federal prosecutors have told a judge that a Tunisian-born man who stabbed a police officer at a Michigan airport subscribes to Osama Bin Laden's ideology and celebrated the 9/11 attacks.

The assertions were made in a court filing against 49-year-old Amor Ftouhi of Montreal, Quebec.

Prosecutors are opposing Ftouhi's federal defender's request for names, addresses and telephone numbers of witnesses in the case. They say that it would risk "future cooperation of witnesses" and impact "their willingness to testify."

FLINT, MI (AP)--   A Canadian man repeated the Arabic phrase "Allahu akbar" prior to being arraigned for a knife attack on a police officer at an international airport in Flint. 

The Flint Journal reports that Amor Ftouhi repeated "God is great" in Arabic several times Wednesday in federal court in Flint.

"Allahu akbar" also was yelled when Lt. Jeff Neville was stabbed June 21 at the airport, northwest of Detroit.

Ftouhi was indicted Wednesday on charges of committing an act of violence at an international airport and interfering with airport security.
