VIENNA (AFP)- The Austrian of Egyptian origin who was shot dead Sunday night after attacking a soldier with a knife outside the Iranian ambassador's residence in Vienna had Islamist sympathies, authorities said.

Preliminary indications suggest that the 26-year-old man "clearly had sympathies with political Islam", Michaela Kardeis, head of public security, told a news conference in Vienna.
