Driver charged with attempted murder over Australian vehicle attack

Driver charged with attempted murder over Australian vehicle attackThe man accused of deliberately plowing into Christmas shoppers on a busy street in the Australian city of Melbourne was charged on Saturday with 18 counts of attempted murder and one count of conduct endangering life. Police said they had charged the man, former Afghanistan refugee Saeed Noori, after formally interviewing him about the attack that police had earlier described as a “deliberate act”. Police have said Noori, 32, is known to have mental health problems and to use drugs and they did not believe the attack was terrorism-related.
