New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced a series of measures to tackle a “crisis” of anti-Semitic attacks, following a mass stabbing.
At least five people were injured in a knife attack at a rabbi’s house in New York on Saturday.
Witnesses said the attacker burst into the house in Monsey, north of New York City, pulled out a large knife and began stabbing people.
The suspected knifeman, named by police as 37 year old Grafton Thomas, has been arrested and charged with attempted murder.
Authorities have not identified the shooter or victims yet.
