A 20-year-old of Albanian roots was one of the gunmen shot dead in the Vienna attacks on Monday. The editor of Vienna’s Falter newspaper, Florian Klenk, said in Twitter that the assailant who was killed was known to domestic intelligence agencies.
Kujtim Fejzulai had “Albanian roots”, but his parents were originally from North Macedonia, Klenk said without giving details of the source for that information. Police thought he was not capable of planning an attack in Vienna, Klenk added.
He stated that the young man, who killed four people and was killed by the police, was known to the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution and Counter-Terrorism Service (BVT), because he was one of the 90 Austrian Islamists who tried to travel to Syria.
In July, he was prevented from trying to go to the battlefields in Syria.
“However, the authorities did not believe that he could plan a terrorist attack,” he added.
Austrian Interior Minister Karl Nehammer confirmed this morning that the killed terrorist was a sympathizer of the Islamic State, without giving further details about his identity.
