A man who deliberately hit a car in a pedestrian on a busy Australian city street, killing one and injuring another 16 people, argued on Friday for several charges, including murder.
Saeed Noor ran his mother’s SUV in pedestrian in December 21 last year on a sidewalk in Melbourne, Australia’s second largest city.
The 33-year-old accused guilty of the highest court in Victoria for the murder of 83-year-old Antonios Crocaris, who died in a hospital eight days after being hit by the car.
Norway faces a potential lifetime of the conviction.
He also charged guilty of 11 bills with ruthless cause of serious harm, which results in a potential maximum 15 years imprisonment, and five behaviors endangering life, bearing a potential 10 years imprisonment.
His lawyers had previously told the court Noori suffered from schizophrenia and probably did not have the eater or slept days before the attack.
Noor came to Australia from Afghanistan as a refugee in 2004 and is now an Australian citizen.
He will return to court for a judicial hearing on February 12th.
It was the second use of a car to attack pedestrians in central Melbourne in 2017.
In January, six people were killed and over 30 were injured when a car was driven up on a pedestrian street.
A top judge month, the driver James Gargasoulas judged 33 charges including six bills of murder. Gargasoulas will be sentenced in January.
The police have not defined either as a terrorist attack, but other vehicle tanks around the world last year were allegedly linked to terrorism.
In October, a man drove a truck into the New York City cycleway, killing eight people. The driver is accused of providing material support to the Islamic state group including charges, including murder.
In August, 13 people were killed and over 100 were injured when a vehicle rammed into pedestrians in Barcelona, Spain.
Two attacks in London last year were allegedly linked to Islamic extremists and another seen as a repressive attack outside a mosque and killed a total of 13 people.
