BREAKING UPDATE: Attacker who stabbed Bishop during Australian church service shouted 'ALLAHU AKBAR'

Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel was stabbed repeatedly while leading Mass at Wakely's Christ The Good Shepherd Church, which was being live streamed. The Bishop is the leader of the Assyrian Orthodox church in Sydney, Australia. The stabbing suspect reportedly yelled, "Allahu Akbar" during the attack.  

Video shows a man walking up to the altar, approaching the Bishop, and violently stabbing him, forcing Emmanuel back off the altar. Parishioners can be heard screaming as the stabber follows Emmanuel to the floor and continues his attack. 

A man who helped pin down the suspect in the attack told reporters on the scene that the stabbing suspect yelled, "Allahu Akbar," during the attack. 

The Bishop’s injuries are not life-threatening, police say. The suspect was taken into custody. 

The suspect could be seen smiling as he was berated by parishioners who had subdued him after the attack. 

Tensions rose outside the church after the attack with reporter Chris De Bruyne broadcasting live. 

Others demanded the suspect be brought out. 

Police tried to hold angry parishioners at bay. 

On Saturday, Sydney was witness to another brutal knife attack where a man murdered six people in a mall, including a young mother, after he had stabbed her 9-month-old baby. The baby was in critical condition.
