The man of the man who carried out a brutal terrorist attack in Melbourne on Friday was found and interviewed by the police.
The knife-wielding Somali terrorist who was shot dead by the police after setting fire to his car and stabbing three men on Bourke Street has been identified as Mohamed Khalif.
The police initially could not come into contact with the wife of Khalif and believed she was missing, but then found her and talked to her.

Khalif, who according to the Herald Sun also bears the name Hassan Shire, was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition but died from his wounds.
He was shot on the chest by the police after his violent attack on pedestrians on Friday around 4.20 pm.
A video of the scene showed the frenzied attack that lasted for more than a minute, starting with the loading of Khalif with two police officers, one punching through a vehicle window and paying attention to it with a knife.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have since claimed the attack as their own through their propaganda platform, and released a statement saying: "The culprit of the operation in Melbourne was a hunter of the Islamic State and carried out the operation to nationals of the coalition that fights IS & # 39; said Amaq, allegedly citing a jihadist security source.
ISIS has previously claimed responsibility for attacks that were later found to be unrelated to the organization.
The 31-year-old and his family were known to counter terrorism organizations at the state and national levels and believed they were connected to North African extremist groups.
The Khalif passport was canceled a few years ago after it had been identified as one of 300 potential security risks.
