Background on the Ohio Terrorist Attack

Ohio attack: Possible terror link being investigated, say police

Police are investigating whether an attack at Ohio State University which left 11 injured was an act of terror.

Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, rammed his car into a group of pedestrians at the college and then began stabbing people before police shot him dead on Monday.

The student's motive is still not known, but terrorism is a possibility, police chief Kim Jacobs said.

However, Artan was not previously known to the authorities, an anonymous source told the Associated Press.
'Purposeful intent'

Conflicting reports have begun to emerge surrounding Artan's character.

Student journalist Kevin Stankiewicz interviewed him on his first day on campus andsaid "he did not seem angry", and was more worried about intimidating others.

But US media have claimed Artan may have posted a rage-filled rant to Facebook shortly before the attack took place.
