A man charged in a double stabbing at an armed forces recruiting centre in Toronto will appear in court today. 

Ayanle Hassan Ali, 27, is facing nine charges, including three counts of attempted murder, for the March 14 incident. 

Two soldiers were injured when a man with a knife attacked them. Police say the man said afterward that Allah told him to do it.

The attack took place at the Joseph Shepard Building at 4900 Yonge St., which is located just north of Sheppard Avenue in the northern part of the city. The building also houses Passport Canada and Service Canada offices.

Police Chief Mark Saunders says there does not appear to be any connection to terrorist groups, but says it seems the suspect deliberately targeted military personnel.

Ali's lawyer has said that the accused will be seeking bail.
