CCTV captures killer on rampage before he murdered stranger ‘for the people of Gaza’

CCTV captures a knife-wielding killer on a rampage through the streets of Hartlepool before murdering a stranger in an act inspired by “revenge” for the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Ahmed Alid, 45, stabbed Terence Carney, 70, six times in Hartlepool town centre eight days after Hamas attacked Israel.

Earlier that day the Moroccan asylum seeker broke into the bedroom of his housemate, Javed Nouri, and hacked at him while he slept in a Home Office-approved asylum seekers’ accommodation.

Alid told police he launched his attacks because “Israel had killed innocent children”.

Alid was found guilty of murdering Mr Carney, attempting to murder Mr Nouri and assaulting two detectives.

He will be sentenced on 17 May.
