Home Hill ‘Allahu Akbar’ stabbing: Police investigate possible extremism link

Brisbane Times

Tributes have begun flowing in for the British backpacker slain in a frenzied stabbing in north Queensland.

Friends have described Mia Ayliffe-Chung as an infectiously happy young woman as news of her death in Home Hill, a rural town about 75km south-east of Townsville, spreads to her former home on the Gold Coast.

The 21-year-old arrived in Australia about a year ago on a working holiday. She had been working as a waitress at Gold Coast nightclubs before making her way north for the backpacker rite of passage on the harvest trail.

She completed her first day on a sugarcane farm on August 17 and began sharing photos of her experience on social media.

    According to the Herald Sun “it was not an act of terror” … So we must conclude that it was an act of love …Eduardo

    Hi Daniel,
    I find it amazing that … the Government keeps calling it a criminal motivated attack and not a religious one and I just want to know why. Here is some simple truth – truth which most of our leaders and media elites fail to grasp: If we wish to survive as a nation, then we must take seriously known threats against us. When groups say they intend to kill us and enslave us, then we had better take them seriously. The first step in protecting our nation and our way of life is to identify – and name – the enemy. If we are so gutless and clueless to refuse to take this most basic of steps in national survival, then we probably deserve to lose it all. But I for one will not go down without a fight.
    Regards, Colin
