Giving an update on Friday regarding the Jan. 15 incident where an armed man took four people hostage during a 10-hour standoff at a synagogue in Texas, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Dallas Field Office Matthew DeSarno called the incident a “hate crime” fuelled by anti-Semitism and an act of “terrorism.”
Malik Faisal Akram, a 44-year-old British citizen, was identified as the hostage-taker and died in the standoff. All four hostages were unharmed.
The FBI on Sunday night issued a statement calling the ordeal “a terrorism-related matter, in which the Jewish community was targeted” and said the Joint Terrorism Task Force is investigating.
