The scene outside the Washwood Heath Muslim Centre in Ward End

A man charged with attempting to murder a police officer during a knife attack at a mosque is to stand trial next year after pleading not guilty.

Mohamoud Elmi faces another allegation of wounding and a further charge of attempted murder against two fellow worshippers in relation to an incident during evening prayers at a mosque in Ward End, Birmingham, on June 15.

He entered pleas of not guilty to all the charges put to him during a plea hearing at Birmingham Crown Court today.

The 32-year-old, of Ward End Hall Grove, Washwood Heath, was remanded back to a secure psychiatric unit.

A trial, which could last for around two weeks, was fixed to start on January 29 next year.
